May 24, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C.- – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned antisemitic flyers distributed in Watertown.

Police were alerted yesterday about bags containing the flyers being found along streets and in driveways in neighborhoods throughout Watertown. Police have recovered at least 50 flyers, and more than double that number have reportedly been found by Watertown residents.

“We condemn the distribution of this hateful propaganda and stand in solidarity with the Jewish community and all Watertown residents against antisemitism and all other forms of bigotry,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper.

He said CAIR and the American Muslim community stand in solidarity with all those challenging antisemitism, anti-Black racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and white supremacy.

CAIR’s mission is to protect civil rights, enhance understanding of Islam, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.
