Director Mueller, Say No to CAIR

Visit National Review

At this point, the question about CAIR should be: Why does anyone care? Care about anything CAIR officials say, that is.

The notorious Council on American-Islamic Relations is back up to its old tricks. CAIR officials figure our ten-minute attention span has lapsed, and that we’ve probably forgotten by now that, in the 2007–08 prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) — a case in which several Islamists were convicted in a scheme that poured millions of dollars into the coffers of the terrorist organization Hamas — CAIR was named as, and shown to be, an unindicted co-conspirator. CAIR reckons that the heat is off, so it’s back on the “Islamophobia” soapbox, demanding an apology from FBI director Robert Mueller.

An apology for what? The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces had the temerity to invite Robert Spencer — one of the nation’s leading experts on Islamist ideology — to lecture federal agents on Islamist ideology.

Spencer’s lecture departed from the government’s “religion of peace” dogma, which holds that there is no Islamist aggression, that there is no civilizational jihad to destroy the West from within (never mind that CAIR’s progenitor, the Muslim Brotherhood, has bragged about its “sabotage” campaign), and that terrorism is not merely unconnected to Islam but, in fact, is anti-Islamic. According to this thinking, Islamist groups like CAIR have a monopoly on what Americans — including American law-enforcement and intelligence agents — are permitted to hear about Islam from academic, media, and government sources. No dissenting views are permitted, no matter how steeped the dissenters may be in Islamic doctrine and no matter how much these dissents accord with what your lyin’ eyes are seeing.

“When I speak with the American,” said Nihad Awad, “I speak with someone who doesn’t know anything.” Awad is now CAIR’s executive director. He made this statement at a Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia on Oct. 27, 1993, when he was the public-relations director for the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP). He and about two dozen other Islamist activists were meeting to brainstorm about how they might be able to continue supporting Hamas and to derail the Oslo Accords — the Clinton administration’s effort to bring a peaceful, two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For Hamas supporters, there can be no peaceful two-state solution, because they deny Israel’s right to exist. That is why, to this day, the charter of Hamas (which was established at the startof the intifada in the late Eighties) calls for the elimination of Israel by violent jihad. But in 1993, the United States was cracking down on Hamas. It would soon be designated a terrorist organization, and providing material support to it would be made a crime.

    I cannot believe what I am reading here from Andrew McCarthy. Does Mr. McCarthy support the jihad against Israel?

    McCarthy wrote: "(Awad) and about two dozen other 'Islamist' activists were meeting to brainstorm about how they might be able to ….. derail the Oslo Accords — the Clinton administration’s effort to bring a peaceful, two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

    The victims of the Oslo accords, both murdered and maimed innocents, ran into the thousands. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and now Barack Hussein Obama sought / seek to impose on Israel a Muslim-terror state between the Mediterranean sea and the Jordan River. The "two state solution" is an integral part of Islam's war against Israel and the West.

    McCarthy: "For Hamas supporters, there can be no peaceful two-state solution, because they deny Israel’s right to exist."

    Hamas and its supporters are right. There can be NO peaceful two-state solution. Why would Andrew McCarthy think otherwise?

    CAIR, though not a legal entity has a lot of Saudi bucks to back their legal campaigns and lobbying efforts.
    CAIR-Canada (CAIR-CAN) also has directed lobbies for Islamic supremacy of infidels.
    For instance, in a recent article, a couple in Ontario Canada had just delivered a baby and the mother and child were placed in a room with a Muslim mother.
    When the Muslim mother was breastfeeding her baby everyone had to leave the room, including the "infidel" mother of the newborn avec child, and the husband could not wash in the same basin or use the same restroom within the room; he had to go down the hall and get wet towels or use the washroom there. The "infidel" father was outraged but got nowhere with hospital staff.

    Sharia Law is being usurped through CAIR's legal counsels and they seem to have bottomless pockets. Lawfare is killing us in North America. They seem to be draining our legal system for a purpose; in hopes of convincing us to just give up and let sharia law be the supreme law of the land is my guess.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      The story is interesting concerning the Infidel father, did he get the message that
      he and his wife and newborn were unclean and beneath the true believers.
      That he was not thrown in jail for beating up the hospitil staff is what is interesting,
      I would have, it would have sent me over the edge, something we must start doing.
      Oh and by the way I am a proud Islamaphobe…………………………..William

      "Sharia Law is being usurped through CAIR's legal counsels and they seem to have bottomless pockets."

      Interestingly enough,Jews had their own "religious courts" in Ontario ,Canada that ruled on religious arbitration matters.I believe that such "courts" and others on such civil/religious matters are now all baned in the aftermath of the Sharia Law debate/scare.What's good for the goose….Muchiboy

      • MixMChess

        The difference is religious Jewish courts in Canada and United States do not seek to usurp the law of the land as does Sharia. Jewish courts only affect THOSE Jews WILLING to submit to their arbitration – no non-Jews are affected in any way. Sharia law seeks to impose itself on not just Muslims but on everyone, it seeks to become the law of the land.

    Astonishing that CAIR would try to intimidate Director Mueller, their pal in the
    White House must have wet his pants on his prayer rug when he heard of
    Muellers actions. CAIR needs to be outlawed and their agents arrested as
    enemy spies. Are we not at war, I have not forgotten, obviously Director Mueller
    has not forgotten so what's wrong with the MSM, Obama, Pelosi, Ried and the
    rest of our Government, enabling our enemies on a continuing basis. I am
    getting the feeling they are not in love with us the people and America, could
    they be leftists and have the same aims as CAIR and Egyptian Brotherhood?
    Ayatollah Barak Hussein Obama, what will be his next move against America?

    Some interesting extracts from Wikipedia.While out of context they do hint at a somewhat different point of view expressed here.And despite what has been said about this site on FP,it is a popular and influential reference and can't be ignored.Muchiboy

    "The Brotherhood………..Since its inception in 1928 the movement has officially opposed violent means to achieve its goals,[3][4] with some exceptions such as in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict . This position has been questioned,
    Outside of Egypt, the group's political activity has been described as evolving away from modernism and reformism towards a more traditional, "rightist conservative" stance. Brotherhood condemned terrorism and the 9/11 attacks,[11][12] but whether or not it has ties to terrorism is a matter of dispute.[13] Its position on violence has also caused disputes within the movement, with advocates of violence at times breaking away to form groups such as the Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya (The Islamic Group) and Al Takfir Wal Hijra (Excommunication and Migration).[14]
    ] While studying at university, Osama bin Laden claimed to have been influenced by the religious and political ideas of several professors with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood …. However, once Al Qaeda was fully organized, they denounced the Muslim Brotherhood's reform through nonviolence and accused them of "betraying the cause of Islam and abandoning their 'jihad' in favour of forming political parties and supporting modern state institutions".[17][18]"

      "We oppose violent means to achieve our goals with some exceptions such as in (the case of) the murders of innocent Jewish women and children. Then anything goes, including suicide bombings,etc."

      Wasn't it Muslim Brotherhood that murdered Egyptian President Anwar Sadat? Is Wikipedia an unbiased, objective source?

      • WilliamJamesWard

        If I remember correctly the Muslim Brotherhood was outlawed in Egypt and
        it's members hunted down by Egyptian authorities who probably killed many
        of them as they disappeared going underground. Hosni Mubarak forced those
        who were eventually freed as it was a large organization with many
        members, into submission to his rule and the United States started giving
        Billions of dollars$$$ for pasification of impoverished Egypt (mug money)
        to keep the Egyptian masses quiet but the pot boils…The Brotherhood has
        sponsored hate and malice towards Israel and provided some suicide bombers.

        I'm unclear if this refers to Hamas or the MB.I don't think the U.S. State Department includes the group on its list of terrorist organizations. Interestingly Hamas refers to it's suicide bombers as their "F-16s".Compare the thousands of innocents killed by Israeli F-16 pilots and those killed by Hamas suicide bombers.A good project for an elementary class on morality and ethics in war.

        Looks like not.Furthermore,Sadat while somewhat popular for his leadership in the Yom Kipur war was equally unpopular because of his role in recognizing Israel.

        "According to Tala'at Qasim, ex-head of the Gama'a Islamiyya interviewed in Middle East Report, it was not Islamic Jihad but the Islamic Group (al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya) that organized the assassination and recruited the assassin (Islambouli).

        Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya began as an umbrella organization for militant student groups, formed, like the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, after the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood renounced violence in the 1970s.

        Any arguments based on the actions of the MB against Arab regimes,including Egypt, has to be seen in the context of those despotic regimes.In other words,they have it coming and may even be responsible for the quality and nature of the opposition.Arab regimes aren't noted for their democratic ideals.

        " Is Wikipedia an unbiased, objective source? "

        I don't know.I only know from a previous article here the controversy with Pro Israel vs Pro Palestinian opinions/groups.I may compare other sources and report back.
