The Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) recently posted to its web site several articles trumpeting
recent events and the list of distinguished attendees.
June 17, 2007:
Ohio Governor Ted Strickland attended a CAIR event
in Columbus honoring
Strickland addressed the same
CAIR-Ohio that defended
the “charity” organization KindHearts
was closed down for investigation by the U.S. Treasury Department in
2006. According to tax filings, KindHearts
did fundraising through the notorious Islamic Association for Palestine
(IAP). The IAP was found civilly liable for the
terror-murder of an American citizen by Hamas. Hamas is yet
another Islamist terrorist group that enjoys
the support of CAIR.
(Is it a coincidence that the Islamic
Association for Palestine is also the parent organization of CAIR?)
How is it that a sitting governor of a state
that forms part of a union currently fighting a war against Islamist
terrorism can sit down with the very self-same group that supports
America’s enemies with impunity?
How many sons and daughters of Ohio have given
their lives and limbs in the battle against Islamist terror?
Is Governor Strickland guilty of collusion or
June 16, 2007: CAIR-Minnesota
held an event
attended by members of the FBI, ACLU, Rep.
Keith Ellison, and president of the American Council of the Blind for
CAIR-MN Communications Director Valerie
"We thank the Minnesota
community for its tremendous support in our first months
of operation and hope to work with people of all faiths on future
initiatives of benefit to our state and nation"
While making deceptive commentary designed to
portray CAIR as something it is not, let’s not forget that this is same
CAIR that defends the outrageous
behaviour of the “Flying

Is Representative Keith Ellison guilty of
collusion or confusion?
June 16, 2007:
CAIR-New Jersey holds a meeting
with “Security Officials” from the FBI,
DHS, and State Police.
While many politically oriented law
enforcement officials meet with CAIR in the spirit of “Muslim
outreach”, it should be noted that in the case of the Department of
Homeland Security (DHS), CAIR’s constant promotion of a “relationship”
with DHS is wearing thin.
According to an article
in the Washington
"The department does
not have a formalized relationship with that particular organization …
we do have formalized relations with other community groups with whom
we do contracts
for training and consultation on matters that are specific to a given
It is not uncommon for that particular organization to issue a press
attempting to overstate their interaction with the department.”
A check reveals that since 2000, CAIR has not
been awarded a grant or government contract.
From an MSNBC
article we learn:
law-enforcement official, who asked not to be identified talking
about a sensitive matter, agrees that there is a “split in FBI
the bureau’s relationships with CAIR and says that some agents
"hold their nose" when it comes to dealing with the group.”
So much for the “special
relationship”? (Just who is CAIR trying to impress, their
North American members or their Saudi leash holders?)
Is there a pattern here?
Given CAIR’s proven connections to
terrorism and Islamist terrorist groups, and CAIR’s recent
a list of "prominent" U.S. Islamic groups as an “unindicted
co-conspirator” in a plot to fund the notorious Islamist terrorist
group Hamas; can North Americans be forgiven if they are asking
themselves why our so-called “leaders” are pandering to CAIR?
Why do many of our
so-called “leaders” give a pass to CAIR?
Why is the
mainstream press so reluctant to give CAIR the sort of investigative
attention they give to Paris Hilton’s underwear hue?
Why the disconnect
between field agents of the FBI and the FBI’s leadership?
The simple fact is that many North Americans
in leadership roles seem to have lost their sense of what is just; what
is right. Many of our “leaders” have developed a moral compass
that has swung
so far askew that it can’t point to the truth even when
they want it to; their needle is clearly broken.
Twenty years ago, would we have tolerated the
presence of any invited members of law enforcement at KKK rallies or
accepted a Representative of the People attending a rally for the NAZI
party as an honored guest speaker?
Where is our sense of outrage?
Why are many of our political class willing to
pander to CAIR? When not making mealy-mouthed statements calling for
“understanding” and “tolerance”, they are busy gadding about in search
of approval from the same groups that support the killing and
maiming of America’s brave warriors who are currently fighting - and
dying - to defend our country from the very people they are telling us
we must be “tolerant” of !
time for “understanding” evil is long past.
The time for “tolerance” in the face of
Islamist terror is over.
The time for action is now. Calls for
“tolerance” should be answered with
a resounding “NO!” when it
comes to radical Islam and those persons and groups, like CAIR, that
clearly support an evil ideology.
There was a time in American communities that
those who committed evil were shunned. People would not speak of
them, or to them. In
short, they were ‘non-persons’ as far as the
civilized community was concerned. The person shunned usually had
the good sense to move away.
We recommend CAIR make a move
No doubt CAIR’s leadership would be among
their own and CAIR’s constant
carping about everything Islamic would fall on sympathetic ears.
By our silence to the activities of CAIR and
other Islamist terrorist supporting groups, are we complicit in their
activities? Do any of us share a little of the blame for CAIR’s
existence because we refuse to do anything about it? Do we enable
CAIR and other Islamist groups
when we continue to re-elect representatives who shake hands and break
bread with America’s enemies?
How many of our leaders have forgotten the
handed down by the founders? How willingly they
trade crass adulation for
personal responsibility as they forget they represent America, not Hamas.
