CAIR Decries Muslim Group Honoring NYPD's Ray Kelly
The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, is lambasting other Muslim leaders for giving an award to outgoing NYPD Chief Ray Kelly.
The NYPD Muslim Advisory Council gave Police Commissioner Ray Kelly an award on December 9, shortly after it issued a report praising the NYPD's treatment of the Muslim community, while still acknowledging that disagreements persist.
CAIR-NY and its allies immediately went on the offensive, calling it a "cheap public relations stunt." Its response isn't only an attack on Kelly; it's an attack on the Muslim leaders that participated in the so-called "stunt." The message is that they are betrayers of the Muslim community.
