CAIR, like other Brotherhood groups, is an Islamist organization masquerading as a civil rights community group. The Islamist mission is not to protect any ethnic or even religious group, but to impose Islamic law.
CAIR-MN recently got slapped down for trying this with pictures of Mohammed being shown at an art class at Hamline University.
CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said most Muslims around the world oppose the public display of images of the Prophet Muhammad. To show the image of the Prophet, said Hussein, is deeply offensive. And he called that violation of the prohibition an act of Islamophobia.
A local chapter of CAIR in New Jersey is trying the same thing over in Paterstine.
New Jersey’s chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling for a bias incident investigation after an unknown vandal smeared a public school sign.
The vandal used an “unknown dark substance” to block out the letters forming the word “Allah” on the sign for the Dr. Hani Awadallah school, according to CAIR-NJ. Allah is the Arabic word for God.
In a statement, CAIR-NJ Executive Director Selaedin Maksut called it part of an upward trend.
“While the circumstances surrounding the incident remain unknown, the smearing of the word ‘Allah’ in Dr. Awadallah’s name is apparently intentional, with the remainder of the sign left untouched, making an immediate hate crime investigation into this incident necessary,” Maksut said.
Blasphemy is not a hate crime. If violating religious sensibilities were a hate crime, then half the art museums in the country would be busted for violating Christian and Jewish religious sensibilities. Hate crimes, at least on paper, are characterized by an attempt to intimidate or threaten a group. Throwing a brick through a mosque window could be considered a hate crime. The recent stabbing of the imam at the local mosque might qualify if it hadn’t apparently been carried out by another Muslim. Crossing out the name of an Islamic diety is vandalism, not a hate crime. Not unless there’s a whole lot more supporting evidence that this was an attempt at intimidation.
Islamists keep trying to hijack bias and hate crimes to impose sharia law on Americans. They should not be allowed to get away with it.
