Nobody churns out press-releases like CAIR, no matter how small the perceived the slight is they never fail to issue one.

WASHINGTON, March 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today called on state and national GOP leaders to repudiate remarks by a Republican lawmaker in Missouri who referred to Islamic principles, or Sharia, as a “disease” like polio.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said state Rep. Don Wells (R-Cabool) made that comparison yesterday during a meeting of the Missouri House Judiciary Committee, which was discussing a bill Wells has proposed to ban consideration of Sharia in that state’s courts. When a Democratic lawmaker asked if Wells really believes Sharia law is like polio, he replied, “Absolutely.”
