CAIR-CA: Free Speech vs. Hate Speech
Of course, most elementary school students will tell you that hate
speech is not to be confused with free speech.
CAIR, the California Council of Churches, Rabbi Haim Dov Beilak and

that could dispel that ignorance and at the same time help Muslim

discussed their five-year project in a recent phone interview from
their home in Paradise Valley.
HADITH OF THE DAY
You Have Guided Me on the Right Path
