The largest advocacy organization for American Muslims reported Monday an increase of almost 30 percent in civil rights complaints in 2005 from the year before. Almost one in five of the complaints came from California, which with eight other states and the District of Columbia accounted for close to 80 percent of the 1,972 complaints. The survey result is not scientific. Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the figures represent complaints made directly to CAIR or otherwise gleaned by the council. "What it shows is a general trend, and the fact is that each year the number has been going up," Hooper said.
