(ATLANTA, GA – 11/23/2020) – The Georgia chapter on the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Georgia), the Georgia Muslim Voter Project (GAMVP), IMAN Atlanta, and several Georgia mosques today announced the formation of Muslims for Georgia — a non-partisan coalition dedicated to maximizing turnout among the state’s registered Muslim voters in the upcoming Senate run-off election and future elections.
(ATLANTA, GA, 9/17/2020) — The Georgia office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Georgia) today condemned an inflammatory and Islamophobic campaign mailer circulated to Georgia voters by the Senate Leadership Fund and called on the Senate Leadership Fund to pull it from distribution and apologize for its offensive content.
The mailer, which displays an image of a Middle Eastern man wearing a head covering with Arabic script spelling Al Jazeera in the background, states without any citation, reference, or context that “Al Jazeera TV has been tied to terrorism in the Middle East.” Al Jazeera, a major global news organization, with 80 bureaus around the world (including several in the United States), is one of the largest Arabic news conglomerates in the world.
The ad is part of a longstanding pattern of political campaigns using Middle Eastern imagery and Arabic script to stoke fear of Muslims, including in Georgia.
