The Council on American-Islamic Relations, in a recent email to supporters, said Christian missionaries are "exploiting the tsunami suffering." In its January 7 "American Muslim News Briefs," CAIR included a report from the Agape Press, which noted that a Virginia-based Christian ministry has sent teams to South Asia "to fulfill disaster victims' needs even as it works to fulfill the Great Commission." "When they're passing out a bottle of water, a blanket, a lantern, a candle, they're passing out gospel tracts with them," the ministry spokesman was quoted as saying. The spokesman said missionaries are seizing the opportunity "to be a witness of the love of Jesus Christ to the Hindus, to the Muslims, to whoever was affected, certainly fulfilling the commandment to take the gospel to everybody."
