Astroturfing Islamophobia

I keep a Google alert on Shaima Alawadi because I've been following the story for some time.

So this morning I get an alert, I'm was hoping its news on Justice for her murder. But sadly it was just CAIR and New America Media spamming old stories of Islamophobia.

El Cajon Killing Revives Fears of Islamophobia

Though police have yet to announce a motive, those in the community suspect Alawadi was targeted for wearing the hijab, a traditional headscarf worn by many female Muslims.

Although we know this narrative is completely and utterly false and that her husband Kassim Alhamidi is awaiting trial on murder charges That doesn't stop the disinformation campaign about her murder run by CAIR and New American Media.
