CAIR Welcomes GOP Call for Resignation of Anti-Muslim Leader

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) welcomed a resignation call by the New Mexico Republican party concerning local GOP leader Marcia Stirman, who wrote that Barack Obama is “a Muslim socialist” and “Muslims are our enemies” in a recent letter.

A party official said that Ms. Stirman’s statements do not speak for the Republican party. A CAIR executive said that the group welcomed the response and criticism of “Ms. Stirman’s disturbing and un-American views,” saying that “no political party should accept or excuse religious intolerance.”
