CAIR Wants Apology From Obama

US Muslim leaders Thursday urged Barack Obama to personally apologize to two supporters in headscarves who were barred from appearing in camera shot with the White House contender this week.

The Democrat's campaign has apologized for the snub, which occurred when campaign volunteers at a rally Monday in Detroit, Michigan told the two Muslim women they could not stand behind Obama because of their "hijab" headgear.

But the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) called for a personal apology from Obama to help redress the grievance and also combat growing anti-Islamic sentiment in the United States.
