CAIR Boasts of Muslim Vote


Pages: 1 2

“This plank is part of a nationwide trend to marginalize Muslims and keep them from having the same rights and access to the courts as Americans of other faiths,” CAIR Government Affairs Coordinator Robert McCaw alleged in a news release. “The plank is irrelevant, since the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause ensures that no foreign law can replace it, and only serves as a smoke-screen for anti-Muslim bigotry.”  He added:  “We wish…the Republican Party had as much confidence in the Constitution as we do.”  Perhaps CAIR might more effectively deflate concerns about Sharia by specifically renouncing any attempt to codify it into civil law.

It’s not at all clear the Republican Platform even addresses Sharia.  Only two sections mention “foreign laws.” One warns:  “Subjecting American citizens to foreign laws is inimical to the spirit of the Constitution. It is one reason we oppose U.S. participation in the International Criminal Court. There must be no use of foreign law by U.S. courts in interpreting our Constitution and laws. Nor should foreign sources of law be used in State courts’ adjudication of criminal or civil matters.”

The GOP’s other mention of “foreign laws” declares:  “Despite improvements as a result of Republican nominations to the judiciary, some judges in the federal courts remain far afield from their constitutional limitations. The U.S. Constitution is the law of the land. Judicial activism which includes reliance on foreign law or unratified treaties undermines American law. The sole solution, apart from impeachment, is the appointment of constitutionalist jurists, who will interpret the law as it was originally intended rather than make it.”

Although a Republican from Kansas at the convention cited concerns about Sharia, the emphases of these two sections on “foreign law” seemed aimed at jurists with a fondness for quoting the laws of other nations in their rulings, or subjugation of American citizens to global tribunals. Neither concern relates to Sharia or to Muslims per se.

In a quote for The Washington Post about Muslim delegates at the Democratic Convention, an Indiana religious studies professor said many American Muslims are disappointed in Obama over continued wars in Iraq and Afghanistan plus lack of an Israeli-Palestinian settlement. But “in the end, the decision to support Obama is a decision to defend Muslims against Islamophobia.”

Touting chronic victimhood can garner attention but usually fails to gain real political influence.  CAIR’s victimology and proclivity for the kinds of scare tactics it ascribes to its critics make it  unappealing and ultimately an ineffective advocate for American Muslims.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    ETERNAL NAKBA FOR CAIR.

    I hope the NYPD continues monitoring mosques and madrassas in New Jersey..

    The "blind sheik" had a home in a Jersey City mosque.

    Islamists planning to attacck Fort Dix were in New Jersey.

    • Kufar Dawg

      I just wanted to thank you for your new greeting for islamofascists (i.e. Happy eternal Nakba), I intend to use it often.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Kufar Dawg AKBAR (is GREAT)

        The "Nakba" is a term coined to describe the FAILURE of 5 Arab armies to destroy Israel in 1948, just 3 years after the end of WW2 and the Holocaust, despite the encouragement in the racist Koran, is a catastrophe for all Islamofascits.

        It was a Nakba, a catastrophe similar to the Unconditional Surrender of national Socialist Germany to the US, UK and SU in 1945.

  • Schlomotion

    Mr. Tooley appears here to scoff at the Supremacy Clause. I wonder why. I would guess that he likes the suspension of Habeas Corpus and the abandonment of the Geneva Conventions. Detainees cannot be neither a prisoner of war, nor a criminal with Constitutional rights. This must dismay Mr. Tooley. Similarly, a free American citizen cannot be neither entitled to peaceably assemble nor freely travel to a country with better rights. Mr. Tooley advocates an erased boundary between church and state, an erased Habeas Corpus, and an erased sense of liberty. He wants to put three more padlocks on the Supremacy Clause and turn this place into the USSA.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Shariamotion is still upset that his side LOST WW2.

      • Kufar Dawg

        I had thought the Ottoman Empire lost WW1?

    ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Using the "anti-white" race card is a code word for national socialism and nazi filth like david puke.

      david puke even endorsed a BLACK nazi mr. charlie barron in an election in NYC.

      It was like CAIR endorsing Obama.

      That's why charlie barron lost. Charlie getting a thumbs up from a kkk klansturd ended Mister Charlies campaign.

  • Ghostwriter

    Great! More idiocy from Schlomotion and GUESSEDworker.

    • curmudgeon

      a question for you, ghost. what part of guestworker's post is erroneous? is there some portion you can factually challenge? admittedly, defending the right of white majority countries to stay that way is politically toxic, and you dont even have to point that out, but tell us…………where is the error? you and your liberal friends and accomplices recognize readily that iraqi and afghani civillians, as well as any foreigner of approved religious alignment has the RIGHT AND DUTY to murder any american soldier because they are "in their country", but you and other toxic denizens of the hate america left dont seem to recognize our right to expel foreign, particularly muslim, invaders on the same basis—being in our country. why is it that where lefties are concerned, what is sauce for the goose is definitel NOT sauce for the gander?

    Eventually they will have their offices in Mosques. They will be called the office of Constitutional Replacement with Sharia.
    Like the leader of the democrats said: blocking Sharia is racist!
