CAIR Harassing 9/11 Museum for Not Providing Arabic Booklets

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


CAIR

This just never ends. Does it. You would think that killing 3,000 people would be enough. Must unindicted terrorist co-conspirator groups like CAIR continue this contrast harassment of the place that commemorates their brutal murders?

The latest whinefare is a CAIR tweet of an editorial claiming that “Sept. 11 memorial insults Arabic speakers by excluding Arabic from brochure translations”.

Also the memorial excludes Hebrew, Polish, Korean, Swahili and 90 percent of the languages on earth because it can only accommodate a handful of major languages.

Muslim entitlement really knows no limits. It’s like a German tourist visiting a Holocaust museum and complaining that there isn’t enough German language material. Or a Japanese tourist complaining about a lack of Katakana at Pearl Harbor.

And this entitled Muslim whining has been going on for a while.

The memorial said, “Nine languages are spoken by over 97 percent of our visitors: English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Mandarin, Italian, Japanese and Russian.”

The 9/11 Memorial provides booklets for 9 non-English languages that are commonly spoken by locals or tourists. They include Spanish (1.8 million New Yorkers), Chinese (418,000 New Yorkers) and Russian (186,000 New Yorkers).

Also on the list are languages spoken by some of the most common tourist visitors such as Portuguese (Brazil 806,000), French (France 667,000) and German (Germany 605,000).

Eventually the number of languages may be expanded.

This isn’t a conspiracy against Muslims. The Metropolitan Museum of Art provides an audio tour in nine languages. They’re mostly the same ones and Arabic isn’t on the list. The Frick has an audio tour in six languages, again most of the same ones.

Museums know who their likely visitors are and their non-English materials usually accommodate European and Asian tourists.

    These people have no shame, but what would you expect, after all?
    I suggest we be sensitive to their complaint and give them an entire page in the pamphlet. How do you write “F### YOU!” In Arabic?

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      I’ve seen muslim women wearing their head rag touring the 9/11 MEMORIAL.

      I’d like to see Infidels tour Mecca.

    • joe dirt

      اللعنة عليك lol

      • liz

        Thanks! Probably doesn’t have the same ring to it in Arabic, but it would get the point across.

  • joe dirt

    Since this still is America, it should only be written in english, if it hurts their feelings, oh well.

    • Anamah

      I share your anger but not your proposal.
      Think on foreign visitors speaking other languages coming as tourists.
      Do not forget we are open to the world.
      We should demand these Neanderthals the same thing.
      CAIR, ISNA, and other bands abuse our patience.

      • joe dirt

        Perhaps, their constant cry for being the victim is getting so old any more. I can see how it would be considerate to other countries, but at this time, they’re not the ones running to the media for sympathy.

  • pennant8

    Instead of giving the CAIR creeps a brochure written in Arabic give them a photo booklet. No words just pictures. Beirut Marine Barracks, Pan Am 73, Khobar Towers, 1st WTC attack, USS Cole, Madrid, London, Kenya mall, Mumbai, Ft Hood, Boston, and of course 9/11.

    • Anamah

      That is a great idea!
      Would you please add some more photos to that booklet?

      Two Islamists attacks in the residential area of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
      Israeli Embassy 1992; and Jewish Community Center (AMIA) 1994.
      Those buildings were destroy when were opened to the public, their employees and volunteers including a kindergarten, and other social services.
      People walking on those streets, having breakfast inside their apartments went flying by the blast.
      Islamists enjoy cruelty, brutality and their intrinsic moral decay around the world.

      No country is safe and we must not comply to their authoritarianism.

    A Canadian report on the Muslim Brotherhood in North America has just been released. It has significant sections on CAIR USA, their links to the MB and their misuse of accusations of racism etc for their PR machine. See the report at: http://www.tsecnetwork.ca

    • Anamah

      They invented the world “islamophobia” to stop any criticism!

      • joe dirt

        Indeed they did!

        “The term “Islamophobia” was invented and promoted in the early 1990s by the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

        “This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.” In short, in its very origins, “Islamophobia” was a term designed as a weapon to advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them.”

          It was actually a rip-off of the so-called “gay” agenda, with the original being “homophobia”. The muzzies saw how well that worked in our PC/MC addled society that they figured they would use it too. And thanks to the legions of izlamo-fascist apologists in government, academia and the media, it has been somewhat successful.

          However, more and more people are becoming aware of the evil that is izlam and its so-called “prophet” that this is wearing thin. We need more to speak out: “Each one, teach one (or more).” When the truth about this satanic totalitarian “religion” becomes a roar, their lies and cries of victimization will no longer work; and the “stealth jihad” can be fought successfully.

          • Matthew O Stroben

            Just be glad they are stupid enough to tell us the truth. Even these progressives will get the picture with the violence and the rapes.

  • 1Indioviejo1

    CAIR’s actions should be viewed as part of the stealth Jihad conducted by Muslim parasites in their host countries. They are here to destroy us and our way of life by any and all means available to them.

  • wileyvet

    Next they will be complaining that there are no Allahu Akbar keychains and fridge magnets. Muslims aren’t going there with a sense of grief or understanding, but rather to see for themselves what their co-religionists did to The Great Satan, and walk away with a sense of pride. They do not need a brochure in Arabic to tell them anything they don’t already know. Another phony CAIR outrage that needs to be countered with truth about Islam.

    • SFTOBEY

      Hear, hear, wileyvet!

  • glpage

    Ann Coulter was right, we should kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.

    • Evan Lygeros

      Umm no. Christ Jesus didn’t give such a thing as an example. Muhammad did though.
      So in spite of what Ann thinks, disciples of the Messiah know better.

      • Matthew O Stroben

        I’m not a saint. Threaten my children and I will do what I have too.

  • Drakken

    It will be a great day in the West when we can finally line these Islamic jihadist against the walls and swing them from the nearest lamp posts.

  • Blake

    These people are brazen because we have placated their every little whim. Why are we sympathetic to these murderous hooligans? The government has bent over backwards to provide more rights for these foreign invaders than even native born Americans expect. And the fault lies with the citizenry as well for not standing up for ourselves; for allowing them to roll up in our neighborhoods without putting them in their place and letting them know that they aren’t bringing that muslim bullshit up in here. Houston 60 miles north of here the muslims are trying to run rampant with their crap. But it don’t happen here because we won’t let it. There are no muslims trying to shut down bar-b-q places cause they serve pork, or shut down pig farms, or trying to ban easter egg hunts and all that hoo-hah. There are muslims here but they don’t try to go all radical in this town. Being muslim is something pretty much kept on the qt around here. And CAIR ain’t gonna show up mouthin off where everybody from grandma on down owns a gun and knows how to use it including the county judge. Part of the reason for the second amendment was to allow us to defend ourselves. It’s funny how heavy gun control states like, NY, California, Michigan, Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia are having major problems with radical islamists. That is not a coincidence.

      this is PC. that is what this country is promoting, and stupidities like this one happen. no one wants to fight PC for fear they will be called Racists.

      • Blake

        PC is just a nefarious sinister way to subvert our right to free speech. The liberal ‘elitist’ in this country are dead set on imposing a caste system where their ideas are the only ones that matter. We are on the road to a totalitarian dictatorship. In George Orwell’s 1984 they had the thought police we have the PC police. That book would be a pretty good read to see how prophetic it has become.

  • Ishmael_137

    Some blow people up, some cut off heads, and still others wage jihad with words. It’s all about submission.
