Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR warned during a talk at Wake Forest University on March 23RD, that if left unchecked, what he calls “false propaganda denigrating Muslims” could lead to barbarity and genocide similar to what happened to the Jews in the Holocaust in Nazi Germany during World War II.
Triad City Beat Awad is the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which calls itself a national organization dedicated to promoting understanding about Islam, defending civil rights and building coalitions with diverse groups. (Actually it is a Muslim Brotherhood front group tied to Hamas, and designated a terrorist group by several Arab nations and excoriated by the FBI)
“It is very unfortunate that it became so convenient for people to spread fear and fearmongering for political reasons, and unfortunately it works. Sometimes selling fear is effective. Fear is abhorred, is rejected by people with common sense. For people who don’t know, it is a very selling product. In fact, it is a very profitable business to sell hate. (That’s what happens when people realize that all the hate is coming out of YOUR side)
“We have seen it unfortunately in the past 100 years,” Awad continued. “We’ve seen it in Germany — what hate and hatemongering start and what they lead to. The Holocaust in Europe did not start with acts of violence. The Holocaust started with false propaganda against Jews in Europe.” (Yes, Jews who weren’t flying planes into buildings, running down people in the streets, beheading their enemies, marrying children, raping girls and women whose countries welcomed them in, and instigating wars all around the world)
When one audience member asked Awad to comment on a recent incident in which a man talked about his desire to kill Muslims during a meeting of right-wing extremists in Kernersville, Awad assured them that the FBI is investigating the incident (No, they aren’t, they just tell you that because you bother them so much).
“I think we should be aware of what’s being said and what’s being done,” Awad said. “It is important for us to be alert. Definitely I urge the Muslim community centers to be on high alert in terms of taking security very seriously in terms of surveillance and monitoring. Work with the local police. Work with the neighborhood associations, with the interfaith communities, because when one community is under threat, other communities can be under threat, too. (But only until you can outnumber non-Muslims, then demand your own Islamic state within the state)
“It is our business to be aware of our surroundings and make sure that we are not intimidated by fear, and we’re not scared,” he added. “This is our home country. We are not going anywhere.” (That’s what YOU think)
Beyond protecting the community, Awad urged mosques to adopt an “open house” policy of proactively inviting guests and the media, and encouraging guests “to ask any question they have on their mind.” (To which we will spew our well-rehearsed lies)
“Those people who are unaware and ignorant, and are willing to learn — open up to them and reach out to them,” Awad said. “And don’t just wait for them to knock on your door and come and visit. Invite, take the initiative because they may think that you don’t like them, that you hate them.
They think that you are the aggressor. (They’re right) They think that you are the enemy (You are), that you pose a threat to them (You do). I’m not asking you to put yourself in danger, but I’m asking you to take the initiative.”
For the benefit of the non-Muslims in the audience, Awad provided a snapshot: “Muslims [in America] today are extremely diverse. We are in all 50 states. We are educated. We are 2 percent of the population, but also we are 2 percent of physicians.” (Another CAIR lie, they are 1% of the population)
Despite the relative insignificance of Muslims as a share of the American population, it’s clear that many non-Muslims feel increasingly threatened, leading to an upsurge in acts of hate. (Still only one-fifth of the hate crimes committed against Jews yet we never hear them whining all over the media)
Awad said that according to an upcoming report by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, “We believe 2016 was the worst year on record for American Muslims when it comes to hate crimes, acts of vandalism, discrimination, attacks on our civil and human rights.” (The majority of which were either fake, done by Muslims themselves (especially graffiti and broken windows at mosques), or greatly exaggerated to make themselves look like perpetual victims)
From 2008 to 2013, Awad said his organization has tallied $205 million in spending by what he called a “Core Network of Islamophobia” involving 33 full-time organizations dedicated “to
stigmatize (expose the truth about) American Muslims.” (Of which BNI is a proud member)
Hamdy Radwan, the imam at Annoor Islamic Center in Clemmons, asked Awad to comment on the pressure experienced by American Muslims to denounce terrorism. (Which is meaningless because Muslims are notorious liars)
Awad responded that American Muslims are in a difficult position. It’s obvious, he said, that people who commit violent acts in the name of ISIS or other Muslim extremist groups are deviants and criminals, and are acting outside of the bounds of the faith (No, they are good Muslims because they are carrying out the commands directly from the quran).
He argued there is a double standard in that Christians, who are the majority religion in the United States, are not asked denounce Christians who bomb abortion clinics in the name of Christianity. (How long ago was that – 20 years?)
Many American Muslims are frustrated and angry that he agrees to go on conservative programs like “The O’Reilly Factor” and denounce terrorism, Awad said, but he believes he has an obligation to do so. (Nobody believes you when you do)
Asked if he believes it’s worthwhile to open up a dialogue with President Trump, Awad said he isn’t interested in talking to the president as long as he promotes policies that target people because of their faith (A faith based on hatred of everything non-Islamic).
He added that he can’t see himself talking to Trump as long as a cloud of suspicion remains over two of his top advisors, Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, due to (TOTALLY FALSE) news reports alleging links to white supremacist groups.
Bannon and Gorka joined the administration after leaving Breitbart News, an extreme right website that takes a hostile stance toward the Council on American-Islamic Relations. In an early February article about (Hamas supporter) Rep. Keith Ellison, Breitbart called the council “jihad-linked” and accused it of fomenting “toxic Islamic ideology and aggressive Arab politics.”
Awad said in an interview after his talk that he considers it a “badge of honor” to be demonized by Breitbart, adding, “If we weren’t I would worry that we were doing something wrong.”
Awad quoted the Rev. Martin Luther King’s statement that oppressed people will remember not the words of their enemies, but the inaction of their friends. (Your only ‘friends’ are the useful idiots on the left, the same people you advocate killing because of their disdain for religion and their support for gays and transgenders, not to mention the Jews, a group against which your quran advocates committing genocide)
“When you read the news and you see hateful comments, it’s your obligation to stop it, to speak up because it will burn you,” he said. “You will send a very wrong message for your children, for your siblings. That’s why I believe when we see it we have to act against it. It doesn’t have to affect you in order to take action.(What messages do all your acts of terrorism around the world say to children?)
“You have to take action, not when it’s easy or convenient, but when it’s right,” he continued. “When it’s right, that’s the time to step in. You have to speak truth to power. And that’s why I believe hateful individuals and groups, while they think they are powerful, they are weak. They are powerful because we are silent, and our silence is empowering to them.” (Oh, you are not silent, we can’t get away from hearing your whining voices on a daily basis)
Awad expressed confidence that Trump’s policies will ultimately be defeated. “We have seen that our media is independent,” he said. “We have seen that our judiciary is on the alert. Our system of checks and balances works very well. Does it mean that we need to be complacent and we need not to take action? Of course it doesn’t.” (The far left media have always supported terrorists and communists. THAT’S PART OF WHY TRUMP WON!)
