CAIR: Calling for SecDef’s Resignation
On May 31, the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) called
on U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to resign over the
alleged massacre of Iraqi civilians by US Marines in the Iraqi city of
Haditha last November:
While it is not surprising that CAIR would
call for Rumsfeld’s resignation; CAIR’s statement is just one more
example of CAIR’s chutzpah:
history, leaders of military forces have accepted
ultimate responsibility for the actions of those under their command.
Given the seemingly unending stream of blunders, abuses and
unjustified killings on Secretary Rumsfeld's watch, it is time for him
to demonstrate in concrete terms that with power, comes accountability,"
However, does not CAIR claim that most every
trial of a muslim in the United States is the result of “Islamophobia”
and that we should not “rush to judgment” in judicial matters?
Doesn’t the Secretary of Defense deserve the
same consideration that CAIR demands for Islamic terrorist
suspects? Or is “not rushing to judgment” reserved for muslim
terrorism suspects only?
CAIR’s record of defending Islamic
leads us to believe that when CAIR speaks of “unjustified
they can only be referring to muslim terrorists who wantonly
murder and maim as a matter of religious
policy. If CAIR’s
“well known” defense of civilians refers to Iraqi civilians, we must
ask why CAIR doesn’t show the same concern
for black muslims in Darfur? CAIR’s defense of Islamic
terrorists is certainly curious and seems to be limited to Islamic
terrorists who are currently murdering North Americans, or
attempting to do so.

county dog catcher, let alone the SecDef ...
