In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:“We strongly condemn the assassination of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, and we call on President Biden to do the same."Throughout this year, the Israeli apartheid government has been launching increasingly violent attacks on reporters, worshipers, paramedics and protesters. Israeli forces also have a long history of targeting journalists, even bombing the Gaza headquarters of the Associated Press and Al-Jazeera last year. Our nation's muted reaction has emboldened this violence.
