CAIR asks KSFO to reprimand hosts


It’s not just Michael Savage or Michael Graham: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has called KSFO-AM San Francisco to reprimand two talkers for a recent segment in which they “mocked Islam, misstated Muslim beliefs and cast suspicion on political participation by American Muslims.”

CAIR says Brian Sussman and co-host “Officer Vic” said the following during their Monday program: “Islamic finance is about living within your means and helping the needy – unless they’re Jews,” and “The great honorable qualities of that good old time religion: honor killings, female circumcision, not allowing women to drive…Jews are monkeys, pigs.”

CAIR is asking American Muslims and other people of conscience to contact KSFO officials and advertisers to express their concerns about the hosts’ anti-Muslim remarks.

“Radio hosts are free to hold bigoted views, but listeners have no obligation to subsidize those views by purchasing the goods or services of companies that choose to advertise on hate-filled programs,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “So-called ‘honor killings,’ female genital mutilation and not allowing women to drive are not part of Islam. Muslims respect Jews and Christians as ‘people of the book’ who received earlier revelations from God.”
