Reuters Publishes CAIR Press Release

From the erstwhile news outlet, Reuters:

CAIR Seeks Hate Crime Probe of Vandalism at Calif. Muslim Candidate’s Home

Fri Oct 16, 2009

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA) today called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for vandalism of the home of a Muslim woman who is running for elected office.

CAIR said the house of Nadja Adolf, a Newark resident running for a seat on her local city council, was egged on Sunday, October 11. Adolf is a long-time Newark resident and has never had any previous complaints about property vandalism. A picture of her, wearing an Islamic head scarf, or hijab, was published in a local newspaper just days before the incident.

"Because of the circumstances surrounding this incident, we believe it is important that a possible bias motive be investigated," said Zahra Billoo, programs and outreach director for CAIR-SFBA. "Our community’s religious, political and community leaders need to be vigilant of and address the growing anti-Muslim rhetoric in our society that can lead to such incidents."

Billoo also urged American Muslim individuals and institutions to review advice on security procedures contained in its "Muslim Community Safety Kit."

Yes, you are reading this right. Reuters has simply published a CAIR press release, word for word, as if it were real news.

Of course Reuters and the rest of our watchdog media have been re-publishing press releases from places like CAIR, the ACLU and the SPLC for a long time now. But they used take the trouble to rewrite them a little, so at least they looked more like real news.

Perhaps they have decided to be more honest about it. Or, more likely, they are just trying to save some money by cutting out the middle man.

But, of course, the desired effect is the same. For lo and behold this story is being reported as truth in certain corners of the world.

From Iran’s Press TV:

Nadja Adolf, a long-time Newark resident, believes the crime was committed because of her participation in the city council election.

In US, scarfed woman’s home vandalized

Mon, 19 Oct 2009

The home of a Muslim woman, running for US city council elections, has been subject to vandalism, after a picture of her wearing an Islamic headscarf was published.

Nadja Adolf, one of three candidates running for two seats in the Newark City Council, had her home egged on 11 October while she and her husband were not home.

In a press release issued late Friday afternoon, the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA), called on local and state officials for a hate-crime investigation into the incident.

CAIR-SFBA believes the attack followed the publication of Adolf’s picture, wearing hijab — an Islamic head scarf — in a local newspaper just days before the incident.

"Because of the circumstances surrounding this incident, we believe it is important that a possible bias motive be investigated," Zahra Billoo, programs and outreach director for CAIR-SFBA said.

Billoo also called on political and community leaders "to address the growing anti-Muslim rhetoric" in the United States.

Adolf who is a long-time Newark resident meanwhile believes that the crime was committed because of her participation in the election.

Police on Monday said that it has launched an initial investigation into the incident, while stepping-up security patrols in Adolf’s neighborhood.

We strongly suspect this will turn out to be yet another self-perpetrated hoax, as is their wont.

If so, you can be sure we won’t hear anything about it from CAIR – even in Reuters.

    Unbelievable. All I could find were eggs busted on her porch. Does she have any teens. And as far as the CAIR asking for federal authorties to look into eggs, last I heard FBI won’t deal with CAIR having learned of them funding terrorists.
