CAIR today said it will call on the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate the civil rights implications of “raw anti-Muslim bigotry” expressed by a Hamilton County Sheriff, Jim Hammond, who claims President Obama is a Muslim who “belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood” and says he plans to monitor suspicious members of the local Muslim community.
Considering the recent Muslim terrorist attack in Chattanooga, TN in which a devout local Muslim slaughtered 5 unarmed servicemen, this is a smart policy that should be enacted all over the country.
CAIR Sevier County Sheriff Ron Seals recently told a local Tea Party meeting that his officers contacted the U.S. Department of Homeland Security after seeing what they viewed as suspicious behavior at a shopping center. That comment, made at a meeting in the Sevier County Courthouse, was prompted by an audience member’s statement about “Muslims in burqas spending long periods of time in shops without making purchases.”
The speech and questions from the audience included frequent references to Muslim residents or visitors to the county. One audience member falsely claimed the “first page of the Koran” says “you will believe in Islam, either voluntarily or by force, or we’re going to kill you.” That person added that “there is no such thing as a modern, good Muslim.”
That same person claimed that a church in Dayton, Ohio, is being protected by the FBI because of “people in burqas acting aggressively toward the congregation.” The audience member continued: “Here’s the important part that I wanted to make you aware of. . .you won’t see this on the Internet. The FBI said this is happening all over the country. They’re going into churches, they’re being aggressive, they’re being controversial, and the government is not allowing this to be reported anywhere.
CAIR says telling the truth about Islam endangers Muslim civil rights in America.
