In an op-ed condemning the Illinois Evangelical higher education institution for suspending and attempting to fire political science professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins for asserting that Christians and Muslims worship the same deity, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad argued that the school's belief that the two religions don't worship the same God displays a level of "ignorance."

"In fact, the Muslim declaration of faith (shahada) states: 'There is no god but God.' more >>
