Egyptian Ahmed Rehab, executive director of CAIR-Chicago, one of the ‘savages’ about whom the ad campaign is directed, says being against Islamic Jihad makes you a racist (ignoring the fact, of course, that Islam is NOT a race, and hardly qualifies a religion)
DTN After completing college in America, Rehab turned his attention to “organizing and empowering Chicago’s Muslim-American community.” Appalled by what he perceived to be a rise in anti-Muslim prejudice among Americans in the aftermath of 9/11, Rehab took the helm of CAIR’s Chicago office with the aim of fostering “cutting-edge professional activism” that would counterbalance “Jewish dominance” of the media and “bring about more fair and accurate coverage of Islam and Muslims.”
In “‘Double Standardism’: The Case of the Two Books” — an article critical of the ‘Jewish’ author Salman Rushdie — Rehab writes: “The Muslims protesting [Rushdie’s book] Satanic Verses were given little credibility as they were seen as being biased for their religion. On the other hand, the Jews and the Jewish subjects were not seen as such but rather as credible professionals…” Rehab further condemns the American media for its tendency to dismiss any suggestion that the horrors of the Holocaust have been exaggerated.
Acknowledging that his worldview has been shaped, in large measure, by the Muslim Brotherhood, Rehab credits especially the group’s founder, Hassan al-Banna, as a “contemporary Muslim individual who influenced” him. Then, read about Hassan al Banna‘s full-blown military and political alliance with Nazi Germany.
