On January 9, 2004 CNews reported, "Muslims with an anti-discrimination group on Friday condemned an article in a B.C. newspaper that accused Jews of faking the Holocaust and staging the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. 'I think the article is just atrocious, it's certainly hateful. I would certainly call it vile and malicious and serves only to scapegoat the Jewish community,' said Riad Saloojee, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Canada. 'I think it's particularly disheartening that it's in a Muslim newspaper. This sort of hateful diatribe is really at odds with Islam.'"
