On Saturday, September 23rd, the Democratic Party of Orange County hosted their annual Harry S. Truman Dinner and presented the Social Justice Award to Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Los Angeles (CAIR-LA). The award recognized CAIR’s work in defending the rights of all Muslims against bigotry, Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination.
CAIR-LA’s Executive Director Hussam Ayloush accepted the award on behalf of the organization. “Today the attack is not on Muslims, not on the Latinos, not on the immigrant community, not on the LGBTQ community, not on the African American community, it’s on all of us.
We’re just being targeted one by one and the only way we can defend ourselves and protect the ideals of our country and our democracy, is to respond together, collectively. Thank you to the Democratic Party of Orange County for such a great honor and great privilege. We take it with a lot of pride and humility.”
CounterJihadReport The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) successfully presents itself to the media as a benign civil rights organization, comparable to the NAACP or the ADL, a description that conservatives ineffectively rail against. In this light, perhaps a tweet sent out just after midnight EST on Nov. 9, the day after the election of Donald Trump, by Hussam Ayloush, long-time head of CAIR’s Los Angeles office, will help awaken the press to CAIR’s true Islamist identity. Ayloush wrote:
That second line is Arabic (“الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام”) for “The people want to bring down the regime.” In other words, Ayloush unambiguously and directly called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
He also likes to refer to Jews as ZioNazis:
The dawning of Donald Trump’s victory was apparently a trying moment for Ayloush, so he let loose with an emotion he’d normally have kept under wraps. In other words, he offered a rare, candid insight into the mind of one CAIR apparatchik.
According to 18 U.S. Code § 2385, “Advocating overthrow of Government”
