“President Obama is in the best position to address the alarming justified level of anti-Islam hate in our nation and to urge religious and political leaders to speak out in support of ‘tolerance’ (HAH!) and mutual understanding,” said unindicted terrorist CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.
Citing the impact of the book “Muslim Mafia” as an example of rampant “anti-Islam hate in our nation,” the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on President Obama yesterday to address what it calls an “alarming” problem.
CAIR – which has filed suit against “Muslim Mafia” co-author P. David Gaubatz and his son for an undercover investigation of the group’s terrorist ties – distributed a list of “anti-Islam incidents” that included “a call by far-right members of the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate Muslim interns on Capitol Hill as ‘spies.'”
“President Obama is in the best position to address the alarming level of anti-Islam hate in our nation and to urge religious and political leaders to speak out in support of tolerance and mutual understanding,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.
House Reps. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., John Shadegg, R-Ariz., Trent Franks, R-Ariz., Paul Broun, R-Ga., formally asked the House sergeant at arms in October to investigate evidence from “Muslim Mafia” that CAIR is conspiring to plant “spies” inside Congress targeting sensitive security-related committees. In another letter, to Attorney General Eric Holder, the House members ask the Justice Department to reveal to Congress members why CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history.
the Internal Revenue Service to investigate CAIR to determine whether the Muslim group’s lobbying activities on Capitol Hill violate its nonprofit status.“Muslim Mafia” uncovered confidential CAIR memos revealing that in one year alone, CAIR officials made 72 separate trips to Congress to lobby against the Patriot Act. The same year Congress met fewer than 150 days.
U.S. prosecutors believe CAIR, while claiming to be a civil-rights group, is actually a front group for Hamas and other terrorists. The Justice Department stated in September 2007during its prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation in Dallas that CAIR “has been identified by the government at trial as a participant in an ongoing and ultimately unlawful conspiracy to support a designated terrorist organization, a conspiracy from which CAIR never withdrew.”
CAIR said its annual national report on the status of American Muslim civil rights, released this month, showed an increase in bias-related incidents in 2008. CAIR has claimed since the 9/11 terrorist attacks that Muslims in the U.S. have suffered a sharp rise in anti-Islamic abuse. But FBI data actually has shown the number of incidents is dramatically shrinking. The 2006 total of 156, for example, was a 68 percent drop from 2001.
In its letter to Obama, CAIR cited recent incidents in Florida in which a cross with the message “Christian nation, Christian community” was planted at the site of a planned mosque and an anti-Islam Christmas display was set up by a local church. Other incidents listed were “a spate of vandalism incidents at mosques nationwide” and “anti-Islam remarks by Christian evangelist Franklin Graham.” (Why shouldn’t people hate you Muslim terrorists? Soon you’ll be dying in the streets of this country if we’re lucky)
CAIR’s director Awad said Obama himself has been “targeted by anti-Muslim hate despite the fact that he is Christian,” (No, Obama is NOT a Christian) noting a Colorado CAR DEALER recently put up a billboard depicting the president as a “turban-wearing militant.” (Very accurate) WND
