Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris told a group of 160 people, including many local pastors, “We’re growing a Christian community, and don’t let anybody shy away from that … I need (Lancaster community) standing up and saying we’re a Christian community, and we’re proud of that.”

The Greater Los Angeles Area office of CAIR then announced it would file a complaint with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. The group urged California’s “religious and political leaders, particularly Republicans (HUH! How dumb is that?) ,” to speak out in support of “religious diversity.”
The controversy follows word that the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Oklahoma chapter wants Sen. James Inhofe, R.-Okla., to meet with Muslim leaders to discuss his call during a congressional hearing to use religion and ethnicity as factors in profiling airline passengers.
“It is disturbing to hear a member of the United States Senate suggest that entire religious and ethnic groups should automatically be considered terror suspects,” said CAIR-OK Executive Director Razi Hashmi. “Our nation’s leaders have a duty not to exacerbate the growing anti-Muslim sentiment in American society.” (WHY NOT? ALL the terrorists have been Muslims)
Advocates of the senator’s position argue correct profiling would not automatically regard a Muslim as a terror suspect. Rather, it would take a passenger’s religion and ethnicity into account among a variety of factors that, together, comprise a terrorist “profile.” (RIIIIIGHT)
CAIR’s national organization itself has been designated by the Justice Department as an unindicted terrorist conspirator, and the FBI has cut off its once-close ties with the group. CAIR’s terrorist connections also have been exposed in an undercover probe that obtained internal documents confirming it acts as a front in the U.S. for international Muslim groups working to bring Saudi-style Islamic law to the nation.
CAIR two months ago wrote a letter to President Obama urging him to address what it called an “alarming level of anti-Islam hate in our nation.” 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. WND
