Discussion : Boycotting Bloomberg’s breakfast


More than a dozen Muslim leaders boycotted New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s interfaith breakfast last week because of AP reports announcing that  “the CIA helped the NYPD build intelligence programs used to spy on Muslims.”

The NYPD has labeled the news agency’s findings as “fictional” and the CIA said it was wrong to suggest it had spied domestically, according to CNN.

Was boycotting the breakfast the correct response for the Muslim leaders? If not, what should they have done instead?
