      *Blue Triangle Network Joins American Muslim Voice in Condemning
      Congressman King�s Inflammatory Remarks Against American Muslims*

      Blue Triangle Network in conjunction with American Muslim Voice
      denounces the hate filled, inflammatory remarks against Muslim Americans
      by Congressmen Peter T. King on the Sean Hannity nationally-syndicated
      radio program on February 9^th , 2004. In language reminiscent of
      anti-Japanese American rhetoric of the 1940s and German anti Jewish
      propaganda of that same period, the Congressman said that the vast
      majority of American Muslim community leaders are *"an enemy living
      amongst us�* and that "no (American) Muslims are cooperating" with law
      enforcement officials to combat terrorism. He further added: "I would
      say, you could say that 80-85 percent of mosques in this country are
      controlled by Islamic fundamentalists�.

      Congressman King�s baseless and unsubstantiated remarks are more than
      the ravings of an ignorant crank, speaking as he is from a government
      which has already imprisoned, brutalized, harassed, deported and
      traumatized thousands upon thousands of people because of the religion
      they practice or the region they come from. Since 9/11/2001, a
      tragedy roundly condemned by large numbers of American Muslim leaders,
      the government has set loose a hurricane of repressive measures
      justified by the lie of the �enemy within�. Congressman King has added
      his bit of bigotry to an ugly repertoire lies and fictions. Blue
      Triangle Network joins American Muslim Voice in calling upon all people
      of conscience in condemning these statements.

      *Action Requested*

      * Please call upon Congressman King to retract his inflammatory
      remarks. It is unbecoming of an elected representative to make
      such xenophobic remarks.
      * Please call the radio station that hosted Sean Hannity�s program
      on which Congressman King made his inflammatory remarks and ask
      them invite Muslim community leaders on their program to address
      Congressman King�s baseless allegations.
