In the short time ACAIR
has been around, we recognize that we have only begun to scratch the
surface in finding out the truth about the Council on American Islamic
Relations (CAIR). We’ve learned that CAIR hates America and every
decent thing that Americans stand for.
CAIR uses our Constitution as a shield to
attack our government, police, and military forces. CAIR has no respect
for American values or traditions…how else to explain Mr. Nihad Awads’
(Executive Director, CAIR) statement: I
am in support of the Hamas movement? How else to excuse
acts of terrorism as “misunderstandings of both sides” ?
At the birth of our country, Americans fought
from Lexington to Concord, on through victory at Yorktown…In 1812, we
fought a second war that further defended our sovereignty. From
1861 to 1865 our fledgling nation was torn apart as brother fought
brother in the Civil War… In the 20th century, we fought two World Wars
and two wars in Asia.
Our point? Americans have always stood ready
to defend themselves when under attack from all enemies, foreign and
domestic. Many is the time when Americans have been called upon
to defend the defenseless and we’ve always stepped up, stood tall and
done our duty.
We now find ourselves fighting a new
enemy. An enemy that mocks us as they hide behind our
Constitution; an enemy, entrenched and protected by a phalanx of
attorneys and sycophants, ready to pounce at the first sign of our
weakness; an enemy that demands that the police power of the state
defend their “rights”, but would deny these same rights to other
Americans; an enemy that accepts funding and support from foreign
countries that support terrorists - who come to our shores to seek out
and murder us; an enemy who demands nothing less than the destruction
of the very Constitution that they hide behind.
We now live
with the Council on American Islamic Relations, a suspected front group
for the Hamas terrorist organization. We live with the
America-bashing of Mr. Ibrahim Hooper and his fellow bigots who hide
behind the peaceful religion of Islam and spread their propaganda. We
listen to Islamist cowards demand respect for their brand of Wahhabi
Islam in the United States.
We don’t listen to the ranting of Osama Bin Laden,
why must we listen to the provocative, insulting statements of Mr.
Nihad Awad? “I support Hamas!”, ... indeed you do, Mr. Awad and "thank you"
for reminding us.
Americans, being the most tolerant people on
Earth, accept concepts and notions that other nations wouldn’t even
consider. Let us ask ourselves. “Would a Muslim country accept a
religious non-Islamic group in their country?” Will the day ever
come when Saudi Arabia welcomes the Catholic Church to Mecca?
Will we ever see a synagogue in Medina?
And yet, we allow the Saudis, through their bought
and paid for terrorist supporters at CAIR, open numerous branches
in America to “protect” the civil rights of Muslims in America.
In all of our wars, we have never knowingly
allowed enemy front groups to operate in our country. Our
President, the leader of our government, the Commander in Chief of the
armed forces, has repeatedly told us we are at war with
terrorism; let’s take him at his word and demand that Islamist
terror front groups in America be shut down…starting with CAIR.
