I am 100, Making a Difference for New Jersey

Web Header Final



Thank you for taking the initiative to learn more about this critical campaign. Since the beginning of 2016, our community is experiencing a significant increase in religious based discriminations, hate crimes and bullying in schools. Since the elections, the attacks on our community have increased many fold. CAIR, nationwide has been overwhelmed, dealing with hundreds of cases. In New Jersey alone, CAIR-NJ has received more incidents in the last 4 weeks than in the previous 4 months.

As the New Year approaches and the new administration takes office, we anticipate things to worsen for our community.  Although, the President elect has rescinded some of his extreme policy statements against our community, he has selected a number of potential cabinet members that have Islamophobic views, including suggestions of a Muslim Registry.

CAIR is launching an initiative to secure the American Muslim Community by:

  • Launching a National Hot Line for our community to quickly and easily report all incidents
  • Doubling the number of attorneys within a year, so that our community will have more free legal services. Currently, CAIR has 40 staff attorneys, nationwide.
  • Preparing a legal plan and team ready to sue the Federal Government, if a Muslim Registry is initiated by the new administration
  • Providing trainings for our community to understand how best to react to difficult situations.

CAIR-NJ needs financial help from everyone to make sure there are sufficient resources in place to support our community. In the next three weeks, help CAIR-NJ meet its financial needs to sufficiently staff its office with legal and communication staff.

CAIR Urges Safety Precautions After FBI Report Says Militias are Targeting U.S. Muslim Institutions 
August 21, 2015
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 8/18/15) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today asked Muslim community leaders nationwide to consider instituting additional safety measures for prayers and other activities following revelations of a recent FBI bulletin warning that “militia extremists” may begin targeting Muslim institutions, including mosques and community centers.
The bulletin, titled “Militia Extremists Expand Target Sets to Include Muslims” and obtained by Public Intelligence, was released to law enforcement before a May rally by armed protesters outside a Phoenix mosque. Some of those protesters wore Nazi-themed attire.
FBI sources report that militia members have been conducting surveillance of “diverse locations including Alaska, Arizona, Indiana, Montana, New York, North and South Carolina, Utah, and Texas.” 
The FBI report noted that “militia extremists in Mississippi discussed kidnapping and beheading a Muslim and posting video of the attack to the Internet. It concluded that the targeting of Muslims is fueled by misconceptions that Islam represents a foreign threat and that President Obama sympathizes with Islamic extremists and his policies align with their goals.
The bulletin cited sources of anti-Muslim bigotry such as the Christian Action Network, hate blogger Pamela Geller and the Internet hate site World Net Daily,
