MEDIUM: Repel the Evil with Good: Chicago Muslims and the Chicago Cubs

An article in Medium covered the latest news regarding CAIR-Chicago and the Chicago Cubs.

The easy emotional response to the leaked emails would be to boycott the Cubs and protest against them, like some Muslims did in response to the Danish cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad. Thank God, Chicago Muslims — led by my friend Ahmed Rehab — resisted this knee-jerk reaction. They wanted something positive to come out of this incident, modeling the Qur’anic method.

And they did just that. They have enlisted the Chicago Cubs as partners to combat the scourge that is Islamophobia, and — true to their essence — the Chicago Cubs responded positively.
