CAIR in the Classroom: Islamist Group Partnering with Public Schools
In 1993, Ibrahim Hooper, director of strategic communications for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said that, "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future. But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education." Twenty-five years later, CAIR could be making headway on that goal, through its relationships with US public school districts in at least three states.
