The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) hosted a comedy bash in late June to draw attention to what they call “growing Islamophobia” in the United States. In response, the American Freedom Defense Initiative and Former Muslims United threw a counter conference to highlight the human rights violations ignored by CAIR and like organizations. Many Muslim apostates publicly gave their personal testimonies of Islamic intolerance. After the conference, JN1’s Lara Berman explored the issues of apostasy further, learning about the dangers faced by Muslims who leave Islam even here in America, and acquiring the facts that ex-Muslims want the West to know.
