CAIR Commemorated Memorial Day by Attacking American Soldiers

Unlike their fellow Muslim Brotherhood Al Qaeda members abroad however they confined it to verbal attacks. So you can see they’re a “moderate” Islamic group, as Ryan Mauro reveals.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group labeled by the Justice Department as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial, disingenuously claims that it is a moderate organization.

Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” about whether to honor American soldiers who died in wars:

She also quoted another CAIR official, Dawud Walid, the executive-director of CAIR’s Michigan chapter, as questioning whether they should honor American soldiers that died in “unjust” wars and occupations.

I’m sure she “struggles” almost as much with it as whether to convert to Buddhism and take up hugging random people.

The tweets outraged the American-Islamic Forum on Democracy (AIFD), a Muslim group opposed to Islamist extremism. Its leader, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, served in the U.S. Navy.

“It is plain to see, however, that they [the CAIR officials] have nothing but disdain for our armed forces. We do hope that Muslim members of the U.S. military realize that CAIR sees you as ‘occupiers,’ not patriots protecting the freest nation on earth,” the AIFD said.

Well how else would they see it? The Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual guide, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi supported terrorist attacks on Americans, soldiers and civilians, in Iraq. He called America an enemy of Islam. (It would be more accurate the other way around.)

CAIR’s co-founder endorsed terrorists. Its co-founder Omar Ahmad told a Fremont, California audience in July 1998: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

The difference between CAIR and Al Qaeda is that the latter Muslim Brotherhood front group is honest about what it does.

I would no more expect CAIR’s officials to honestly honor US troops than I would expect Osama bin Laden to don a flag pin, rise from the dead and attend Fleet Week… unless he got caught in a propeller.

    Man, how blessed we are in our freedom and tolerate this kind of anti American expression of thought without casting them out of the country……Bravo Americans for you charity. Our fallen soldiers would be proud of us for our love of others dispite their lack of appreciation.

      Its a hard pill to swallow but who are we to judge? They will have their day before the Creator.

        “Bravo for your charity”?
        Don’t mean any disrespect, but its not “charity” to let our self-declared enemies into our country – it’s stupidity at best, treason at worst.
        “Who are we to judge”? That’s an abdication of responsibility.
        We should use every ounce of rational judgement at our disposal to recognize stealth jihad, and DO something about it.
        Leaving it for “God to judge” is the surest way to achieve defeat and “dhimmitude” at the hands of our enemies.

        • Jakareh

          I am a rational, moral human being and perfectly capable of passing judgment on CAIR, as are most Americans. My personal judgment is that it’s a hostile and treacherous cabal intent on imposing an ideology on this country that is alien and malevolent. Its members should be imprisoned, deported, or executed, and those responsible for admitting them into the country held liable for their actions.

            Jakareh AKBAR!

        And I favor sending them to meet that creator ASAP.

    What can be gained from Benghazi Select Committee?

    Stop the Moslem Brotherhood from dictating US foreign policy in the Middle East.

    End the idea of immigration as charity, especially from countries that hate us, just so Democrats can win elections.

    I appreciated Dr. Jasser’s stand. Dr. Jasser seems to be the kind of Muslim I can respect.

    • Jakareh

      Zuhdi Jasser is completely wrong about what Islam is, and CAIR (and Al Qaeda) are completely right. The people truly worthy of respect are those who have renounced Islam altogether, such as Walid Shoebat, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Nonie Darwish, not those who engage in misrepresentation and wishful thinking.

      • liz

        I completely agree that only those who renounce Islam are worthy of respect, since it is a primitive form of Nazism.
        However, from what I’ve heard about Jasser, he’s an exception to the rule, as he actually respects our Constitution.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Zudi Jasser is one in 1.4 billion.

    billoo lies. then send tweets me a link to support her lie (10/13). then i send her an UP dated link to prove her wrong (12/13). then she says “i dont need to prove anything to you good day”. not one muslim follower of hers got back to me w/any more current info to prove me wrong. cair is sneaky, i prefer the real thing.

  • Bob OBrien

    talking about all our fallen heros. Shame on you. go home where you belong or put all your thoughts in the direction they should be if you want to liv american life.and dream.

  • pennant8

    CAIR [Council on American Islamic relations] reveals itself to be a separatist organization by its very name. The name implies that there is America and there is Islam, two separate entities. The mission of CAIR is to insure that they remain separate, and whenever there is a conflict of purpose, the American side should yield to the Islamic side.

    Clever wordsmiths that they are, CAIR spokesmen like to toss around the word “our” as in our troops, our constitution, our founding fathers. This is nothing more than a sophisticated, fine-tuned extension of the Islamic deceptive practice of taqiyya.

  • glpage

    Billoo ought to honor veterans if for no other reason than they fought for her right to express such idiocy and drivel.

  • USARetired

    Wasn’t CAIR once Banned, and declared a ‘subversive organization’ in this Country, and how did Obozo get away with suppressing this?

  • garyfouse

    This is the same woman who dragged out that infamous poster urging Muslims to slam the door when the FBI came to ask questions and gain cooperation.

  • The boss

    WOW and we take these poor people in because their homeland and their polices. When will it end? When will Americans and the Europen people wake up and stop this. Deport them all NOW
