CAIR asks Calif. radio station to reprimand anti-Muslim hosts

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has called on a San Francisco radio station to reprimand two talk show hosts for a recent segment in which they mocked Islam, misstated Muslim beliefs, and cast suspicion on political participation of Muslim Americans.

CAIR reported that KSFO 560-AM host Brian Sussman and co-host “Officer Vic” said during their 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 people of conscience to contact KSFO officials and advertisers to share their concerns over the 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.
