The Anti-Minutemen And CAIR Are Liars!

CAIR-Chicago is urging everyone to call the State’s Attorney and the Mayor of Arlington Heights and tell them that you support the Anti-Minutemen 5, and that the charges should be dropped. No one should be prosecuted for peacefully protesting. Additionally, please voice your concern over the inappropriate treatment of the only hijab-wearing Muslim at the protest. Below is the contact information of the State’s Attorney’s Office and the mayor of Arlington Heights:

State’s Attorney’s Office: 847-818-2326

Arlene Mulder
Mayor of Arlington Heights

We need hundreds of phone calls to go out in the next 6 days!! Please call everyday and encourage all the people you know to do the same. Information on the case is below:

CAIR-Chicago is urging everyone to respond to an egregious case of police misconduct against Rehana Khan, a Muslim girl who had her headscarf (hijab) ripped off after she and several others were arrested while protesting at a rally for immigrant rights. Rehana was also searched in the presence of a male officer and placed into lockup without her hijab.

The 5 protestors who were arrested (now known as the Anti-Minutemen 5) are activists who were arrested in Arlington Heights on October 15, 2005 at a peaceful protest against a racist, anti-immigrant vigilante group called the Minutemen. They are now facing trumped up charges and up to 4 years in jail.

With only a few days left until trial begins for the Anti-Minutemen defendants, CAIR-Chicago is urging everyone to flood the State’s Attorney and Mayor's offices with phone calls.
How do we know CAIR is lying? Well, clue one is that their mouths are moving, ba-dum-dum!

However, it turns out MJ and I attended the Minuteman summit in Arlington Heights that day. Our reportage is here, here and here. There are a couple of others if you poke about. If that was a 'peaceful' protest I'd surely hate to see what they think a violent one might be.

Let's turn this around on these jokers. If anybody has a spare minute give the mayor of Arlington Heights a call and let her know most Americans would like to see the book thrown at these jack-asses.
