WASHINGTON, May 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on media outlets and journalists in the United States and worldwide to stop referring to Israeli attacks on Palestinians protesting ethnic cleansing and racial and religious apartheid "clashes."
Sheikh Jarrah: How the US media is erasing Israel's crimeshttps://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/sheikh-jarrah-israel-palestine-us-media-erasing-crimes
In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad, whose family was ethnically-cleansed from Palestine, said:
"The Palestinian people – Muslim and Christian -- are continuing their decades-long struggle to resist both ongoing ethnic cleansing and the apartheid system that has been so-named by respected international groups like Human Rights Watch. To term this resistance and the brutal Israeli response as 'clashes' falsely indicates a moral equivalency between the oppressor and the oppressed, between the occupier and the occupied.
"Our nation's thought leaders and policymakers must finally give up the 'human rights and justice everywhere – except Palestine' attitude that has resulted in so much suffering and injustice over so many years."
