CAIR seeks removal from UAE terrorist list

CAIR HQ, Capitol Hill
CAIR, the Hamas-linked Muslim civil rights group, was placed on the UAE's list of terror groups last autumn.

It wants off of it AP reports:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Friday it has sought to be removed from a United Arab Emirates' list that designates it as a terrorist organization, along with dozens of other groups.

The move comes after the Emirati Cabinet said that designated groups can pursue an appeals process to seek removal from the terrorism list.

Washington-based CAIR describes itself as America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization.
