Council on American-Islamic Relations

The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) today condemned the burning of a cross on the lawn of supporters of President-elect Obama in that state.

According to media reports, a Warren County family of Indian descent discovered the burned cross on their front lawn Thursday morning. The family's homemade cloth sign celebrating Obama's victory was draped over the fallen cross.

"We condemn this apparently bias-motivated act and urge local, state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate it as a hate crime," said CAIR-NJ Executive Director James Sues. "No American should be hindered from participating in the political process by acts of intimidation and hatred."

Sues noted that earlier this week, a New York Muslim of Liberian heritage was allegedly beaten by a gang of four white men angry about President-elect Obama's victory.
