California CAIR: Bring Blasphemy Laws to the U.S.
by Lloyd Billingsley
Rashid Ahmad, northern California leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has been asked by his non-Muslim friends what he thinks of recent events in Libya.
"When I saw the demonstrations and learned of the ambassador's death, I said, 'Did these crazy people lose their minds? This guy [Ambassador Stevens] was trying to help the Libyans and they killed him,'" Ahmad told Steve Magagnini of the Sacramento Bee.
"But now the U.S. government says it might have been a planned attack by an al-Qaida affiliate, and the Libyan people were also victims. We are ashamed this happened and believe the reaction in the Muslim world is way out of line."
