CBS 2: Ahmed Rehab Rebukes Lowe’s for Caving to Anti-Muslim Bigotry

After facing pressure from right-wing conservative groups, the Lowe’s home-improvement chain, pulled its ads from a reality TV show about American Muslims. Anti-Muslim groups claim the show, All-American Muslim, “riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.”

“It’s one thing for bigots and nuts to be bigots and nuts. It’s another thing for amainstream company to embrace that. This is the mainstreaming of bigotry,” said Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of CAIR-Chicago.
