It was three in the morning on August 31 when the light coloured SUV braked to a stop at 16th and Granville. A small group of Asian men jumped out of the vehicle, ran over to a hut built on the sidewalk and began to pummel the young man sitting inside the modest structure. In less than a minute, Raymond Zhang, the Falun Gong meditator taking the night shift at the organization’s vigil outside China’s Vancouver consulate, had been beaten about the head and shoulders and the three attackers had fled.

ON THE HOMEFRONT:

QUOTE:

In a statement responding to the president’s speech before the Military Officers Association of America, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) criticized President Bush for “focusing almost exclusively on the views of groups like Al-Qaeda and failing to address the concerns of the vast majority of Muslims worldwide who reject terrorism.”

In doing so, CAIR said, “President Bush grants undeserved legitimacy to extremists and marginalizes true moderates.”
