CAIR spokesman: 'Shouldn't generalize' about Islam based on Paris terrorists
by Cheryl K. Chumley
A Council on American-Islamic Relations spokesman repudiated Wednesday's terror attack on a Paris satirical newspaper that left 12 dead, saying such incidents don't represent the Islam faith.
Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the organization, said in a telephone interview with The Washington Times that CAIR "condemn[s] in the strongest possible terms the brutal and cowardly attack" at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris that left 12 police officers and publication staffers dead.
The same newspaper was firebombed in 2011 after publishing a cartoon of the prophet Mohammed.
