On Wednesday, September 26, the S. Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFL) will hold a news conference with a Boca Raton Muslim woman whose U.S. permanent resident husband has been trapped in the Gaza Strip by Israeli authorities.

WHAT: Boca Raton Woman Appeals for Safe Return of Husband
WHEN: Wednesday, September 26, 2007, 1 p.m.

The Boca Raton woman, who is a U.S. citizen, says her husband was visiting Gaza during the summer break to see his ailing mother. When he attempted to return, Israeli authorities blocked his exit from Gaza.

CAIR recently assisted members of other Muslim families from Florida, Arizona and Tennessee who were blocked by Israel from leaving the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties and advocacy group, has 33 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
