You may have heard that the United Arab Emirates recently released a list of organizations it deems as terrorists which, outrageously, included the Muslim American Society (MAS) and CAIR.
We are also certain that you saw the U.S. government swiftly reject this labeling.
Other than the anticipated right-wing attacks, mainstream and social media have been deeply supportive of MAS and CAIR, as have the many organizations and institutions we work with. Groups like the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) issued their own rejections of the UAE's action.
We are incredibly appreciative of the outpouring of support we have received.
