The Maryland office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MD) welcomed the decision of officials at Baltimore talk radio station WCBM AM 680 to remove an anti-Muslim article that was re-published on its website.

The article by an anti-Muslim blogger read in part: "The ideology of Islam (a totalitarian system cloaked in the burqa of religion) views itself as above all other religions and systems ... Everywhere it invades and conquers, its sole purpose is to convert by force or by numbers. No other religion/culture is equal or tolerated as such. They come to a country and isolate their community ... because the Quran demands they do not mix with infidels."


"The bigoted generalizations in this article are inappropriate for use by a mainstream media outlet and should be rejected for the hatred and intolerance they promote," said CAIR-MD President Zainab Chaudry. "We welcome the station's prompt and appropriate response to community concerns."
