CAIR: Attacking Shawn Steel for
Telling the Truth?
The Council on American-Islamic Relations is
at it again. CAIR, a Washington, D.C. based Islamic terrorist
supporting hate group tell it, Shawn Steel is the devil incarnate.
Steel’s offense? He dared call
attention to the background of Bill Dalati, an immigrant insurance
agent running for office in Anaheim, California. Dalati is
running as a Republican for city council.
Steel rightly points out that Dalati has the
backing of CAIR and called CAIR a “pretty radical, nasty group” in a
letter he wrote that ended up on a blog.
For most Americans, a CAIR endorsement is the
kiss of death for any candidate for public office, and this is as it
should be. CAIR does not throw out endorsements lightly and all
Americans should be asking what the payoff is for CAIR should Dalati be
Steel goes on to point out Dalati’s attendance
at an anti-war rally, his non-support for President Bush in the recent
election over the Iraq War issue, and Dalati’s support for Rep.
McKinney of Georgia, who is a Democrat and a well-known anti-Semite.
Hussam Ayloush, CAIR’s Southern California
chapter director, had this to say about Steel:
“The people of Anaheim
would appreciate it if outsiders with personal political agendas
would keep their divisive political views away from the city…for
Muslims to witness
what is happening in this campaign, it only makes us realize what it
been like for Catholics, Jews and African Americans to run for office.”
(Too bad that Ayloush doesn’t take his own
advice about outside interlopers)
Ayloush sued Steel a few years ago…and dropped the
Ayloush had his shot at Steel and chose to run rather than put up a fight
to defend himself in court.
What does this tell us about Ayloush that
he believed his own “honor” wasn’t worth defending?
The bottom line is that Steel is telling the truth
about Dalati (and Ayloush), and his masters at CAIR simply cannot abide
ACAIR predicts that as more
information about Dalait’s ties to CAIR and extremist personalities
comes to light, the good voters of Anaheim will do the right thing and
turn their backs on Dalati and his “pretty radical, nasty group” of
friends at CAIR.
