CAIR releases video in Arabic, appealing for calm
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a new video Saturday, appealing in Arabic, for calm.
In the video, CAIR's national executive director tells viewers in the Middle East that ordinary Americans and the U.S. government should not be blamed for the religious hatred expressed in the film.
The video argues that the controversy distracts from more important issues like the struggle for freedom in Syria.
