CAIR Protests No-Fly Ban of Terror Sheik Who Called for Slitting Jewish Throats

CAIR, a Muslim hate group operating in the United States. The Council on American-Islamic Relations has come to attention in recent weeks for its renewed expressions of Anti-Semitism.

Now the CAIR hate group has come out against the No Fly List ban of a radical Saudi Terror Sheik notorious for his expressions of bigotry and support for terrorism.

Sheikh Ayed al-Qarni was scheduled to speak twice during the Muslim American-Society (MAS)/Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) national convention Dec. 22-25. But a statement released during the convention expressed “the unpleasant and saddening news” that al-Qarni had been removed from his flight from Saudi Arabia despite having a visa from the U.S. embassy, and that he appears to be on the U.S. “no-fly list.” Al-Qarni is described as “one of our great speakers” and as someone known “for his logical discourse and balanced views, he promotes understanding and collaboration between all people, regardless of their faith, background, or language.”

CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad told an Arabic news outlet that he would protest al-Qarni’s exclusion with DHS and State Department officials. “We defend all Muslims who are subject to arbitrary measure, and by this logic, we will act but not formally plead, unless we obtain authorization from him.”

But is the Al-Qarni ban really arbitrary and groundless?

We Muslims should be rebuked. One billion two hundred million nobodies! We are incapable of taking action, of being useful, of harming the Jews. The most people do today is to verbally protest over the TV channels or to demonstrate. What is the use of this?

I pray to Allah that He will make the enemies fall into their own trap and that He will destroy the Jews and their helpers from among the Christians and the Communists, and that He will turn them into the Muslims’ spoils.

“I praise Jihad, sacrifice, and resistance against the occupiers in Iraq. We curse them, all of them, every night and pray that Allah will annihilate them, tear them apart, and grant us victory over them…

“The Jihad in Falluja is a source of pride. It is astounding: a city of 250,000 residents opposing what is by their standards a superpower – downing their planes, destroying equipment, slaughtering them, taking them hostage, and proclaiming ‘Allah Akhbar’ from the mosques, and the worshippers and the preacher cursing them in their prayers, and then come others begging for forgiveness, and requesting dialogue and ceasefire and negotiations. Who can say even one word against this true Jihad against these colonialist occupiers?

“Throats must be slit and skulls must be shattered,” al-Qarni said. “This is the path to victory, to shahada, and to sacrifice.”

Keeping a wonderful homicidal bigot like this out of the United States is clearly the most arbitrary thing ever since the time Hoover wouldn’t give Hitler a visa.

And CAIR’s favorite Terror Sheik has a long history of spewing Anti-Semitism in every forum that would have him.

In the February 7, 2005 interview on Saudi TV, Al-Qarnisaid: “The first ones to kill and use terrorism in the world were the Jews. Let me quote Henry Manjiro [ sic ] in his book on the history of the U.S. Abraham Lincoln… who freed their slaves, was killed in an act of terror. Kennedy was killed in an act of terror. And the list goes on. They began to act this way 200 years before us. Why don’t they go back to their history? The terror attack on the building in Oklahoma was an American act of terror, as you know. The blowing up of the buildings in Washington, opposite the Pentagon, was an American terror attack

“But we won’t accept the Zionist rule, or that of the White House – which is, in fact, a Black House.

CAIR seems rather determined to aid the entry of a violent Muslim bigot who is so demented that he claims the Jews killed Lincoln.

But while Al-Qarni is a fan of killing Jews and Americans… he’s also a fan of Barack Obama.

“Now we have an educated and rational president with roots in Islam. He is knowledgeable about history; he is courteous and tactful; he is kind and gentle; he is calling for dialogue and candor. [Nevertheless], some of us have replied: We do not hear or see, and we do not give and take, because we are afflicted with conspiracy theories. In fact, some of us have threatened him…

“We tell Barack Obama: ‘What a blessed hour, O Abu Hussein! You are a thousand times welcome.’”

    I can think of a ton of reasons to keep this monster out. His Jew hatred,among them.

    Napolitano will probably fire the guy who put his name on the no-fly list. Meanwhile, who in the State Dept issued him a visa in the first place?

    To me, CAIR is a irrelevant group of clout-less nobodies. They themselves (whoever THEY are) once admitted, that there's no such organization that exists. So why even bother to listen to anybody that doesn't exist?

    Here is CAIR in all their 'caring', and they are nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia. The following are their goals and step by step plans – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/25/the-muslim-ma

    And CAIR's MAIN mission is the facilitation of Sharia Law – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/15/shariah-law-i

    "One billion two hundred million nobodies!:" If he had stopped here, he would be telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. If it were not for oil, almost all Muslims would be living in sub-Saharan poverty due to their hidebound ways, constant propagation of genetic diseases through inbreeding, and inability to self-govern.
