CAIR preemptively upset over new ABC drama

Alice in Arabia… centers on an American teen kidnapped by her Saudi Arabian family after tragedy befalls her parents.

“We are concerned that, given media references to the main character ‘surviving life behind the veil,’ the pilot and any resulting series may engage in stereotyping that can lead to things like bullying of Muslim students,” CAIR-LA exec director Hussam Ayloush said in a statement. “We urge ABC Family Channel to meet with representatives of the Muslim and Arab-American communities to discuss this important issue.”
