Disney owned radio station disses Moslems

From the Washington Post:

A local radio talk show host touched off complaints from an Islamic civil rights organization yesterday after repeatedly describing Islam on the air as "a terrorist organization" that is "at war with America."

The organization, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), asked the station to take disciplinary action against Michael Graham, who hosts WMAL-AM's late-morning call-in program.

A station executive, Randall Bloomquist, said yesterday that Graham's comments were "amped up" but justified within the context of the program. He said the station, which is owned by the Walt Disney Co., had no plans to reprimand Graham.

Personally I think the host was out of line, and should learn to distinguish between extremists, and peaceful Moslems. But what I find interesting is that CAIR seems to focus only on the way non-Moslems treat Moslems, and not the other way around. Maybe I'm missing something here, but it seems to me the quickest way to improve American-Islamic relations would be to address the problem of non-Moslems being blown up by Moslems. Something CAIR seems to like to ignore.
