Islamic And Arabic Stores Are Banning The New York Post
From The Arab Voice
August 10, 02

New York City Arabic and Muslim merchants notified the Council on American Islamic Relations that they will stop selling the New York Post at their stores. They say that the newspaper is publishing articles biased against Muslims and Arabs, and its editors are refusing to give Muslim writers a fair chance to respond to the accusations that the newspaper is publishing about them.

This movement started spontaneously, and is now organized by a group in Brooklyn.

Those responsible for this movement told the Council that 500 Muslim and Arab merchants are refusing to sell the New York Post in their grocery stores, newspaper stands, and other businesses.

The number of Staten Island merchants joining the boycott could reach a hundred, they added. Representatives from the Arabic and Muslim merchants’ group have met with the directors of the newspaper, but no agreement was reach between the two parties.
