CAIR Slimes Joe Farah - Time To Take The Gloves Off?


     Joseph Farah is irate. And rightly so.

     The highly respected founder, editor and CEO of WorldNetDaily was blatantly slandered last week by CAIR's communication director, and terrorist supporter, Ibrahim Hooper.

     The Daily News had a column that referred to a new book from WND Books called  "Why We Left Islam: Former Muslims Speak Out."  

     Looking for a quote from a Muslim about the book, the columnists at the Daily News went to CAIR, specifically, Ibrahim Hooper:.

 "This book is put out by WND Publishing (sic), which promotes hate every day
on its extremist anti-Muslim hate site. The editor is a guy who suggested
air-dropping pig's blood over Afghanistan."


     What Hooper has done here is exactly how Farah, in an Editorial, describes it:

"Hooper put a target on my back ... He also uttered a false and defamatory
statement about me that has yet to be corrected by the Daily News, has yet
to be withdrawn by Hooper and will undoubtedly be recycled in other venues"


     Over one week later, and only after Farah's editorial, CAIR sent this pathetic "explanation" to Farah from it's legal counsel Nadhira F. Al-Khalili:

"In the interest of accuracy," ... "Mr. Hooper was referring to a WorldNetDaily column,
presumably approved by you as editor of the website, which advocated telling
Afghans that the U.S. has 'enlisted Afghani (sic) moles to contaminate
their water supplies with pig's blood."


     Mr. Farah is justifiably not satisfied. He told Al-Khalili:

"Your client has an obligation to apologize for those comments
and seek correction at the point of publication"


     In one area there was some progress. The attorney for the Daily News has told Mr. Farah that they will publish a correction in the near future. The "explanation" given by CAIR's Al-Khalili, however,  is nothing but a middle-fingered salute straight back at Mr. Farah. It is absurd.

     Consider that Ibrahim Hooper is a top officer of America's number one Muslim Brotherhood created terror-front group: CAIR.

     Why would Hooper spew such an outrageous distortion of truth?  Because he undoubtedly feels that nobody will call him on it, or even investigate the fact that he fabricated a lie against Farah simply because WND is considered by many in the mainstream media as "right wing" and "pro-Israel" and that CAIR "advocates" for "oppressed" Muslims in America. Although Hooper got his legal servant to offer an excuse, this event should be far from over.

     Mr. Hooper knows exactly what he's doing. He may think he's untouchable.

     Picture Mr. Hooper clapping his claws like a little school-girl when his slanderous quote got published.

     Of course Hooper knows WND is a news source that actually practices "journalism" and has the integrity to carefully source all the facts they present in a story, unlike the Daily News, who couldn't be bothered to check on Hooper's claim concerning Farah. Could it be that Hooper was throwing mud at Farah in the hopes that it would stick, to offset actual damning expressions from CAIR Officials?

     Here's some true quotes from Hooper and other CAIR Officers. These quotes are actually sourced, factual, and at all times, objectionable.

      Ibrahim Hooper:
"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future...But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education."

     
Omar Ahmad:
"Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam ...
Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The
Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

"Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam, that is not suicide," ..."They kill themselves for Islam."


" Politics is a completion of War "

     
Nihad Awad:
  "I am in support of the Hamas movement."

"Address people according to their minds. When I speak with the American, I speak with someone who doesn't know anything."

     
Ahmed Bedier:
"Catholic priests pose more of a terrorism threat by having sex with young altar boys than those who flew planes  into the World Trade Center."

     
Ahmad Al-Akhras:
"Americans in general might be more
supportive of targeted attacks on civilians as part of the war on terror, than U.S. Muslims"


     Mr. Farah asks in "Farah v. CAIR":    "What should I do?"

      Anti-CAIR feels that Joseph Farah and WND have always been extremely fair and accurate when they have published stories and investigative reports about CAIR. WND has always taken great pains to be truthful and source their material. We also feel that WND, in it's quest to actually practice journalism and fairness, comes off as soft and non threatening to the likes of Hooper. Since when have "just the facts" worried an Islamist like Hooper and CAIR? 

     CAIR may think they have nothing to fear from WND. After all, anything WND prints about CAIR is creatively refuted by CAIR and gobbled up by the mainstream media as "CAIR Myths" and just another attack by an "extremist anti-Muslim hate site."

     WND is a variety-type news source. They are complete in their coverage of daily national/world events and only deal with an issue about CAIR when it's newsworthy - like when another CAIR official is indicted, or when CAIR is exposed eagerly supporting a terrorist.

     And why should CAIR ever fear the mainstream media? When the New York Times or Washington Post write about CAIR, their "reporters" refuse to present the actual facts about CAIR because they don't want to "get down in the weeds" about CAIR, or because Muslims are "oppressed" in this country. Why should CAIR worry about WND or Joseph Farah?

     What should you do, Mr. Farah?
