On March 12, 2003 The Associated Press reported "as it becomes increasingly clear that America will attack Iraq in the next few days, CAIR has put together a 'Muslim Community Safety Kit' for Muslims, Arab-Americans and those perceived to be 'Middle Eastern' who may be targeted by religious or ethnic profiling or bias-related hate crimes. According to the FBI: 'A U.S. war with Iraq or another terrorist attack could trigger a wave of hate crimes against Muslims and Arab-Americans in the United States.'"
