CAIR’s Board Chairman, Mr.
Omar Ahmad, Denied Retraction
On May 8th, 2003, ACAIR's press
release, nr. 009, highlighted comments stated by Mr. Omar M.
ACAIR feels that Omar Ahmad's comments
are indicative of the true
intentions of CAIR- to turn the United States into a fundamentalist
Islamist theocracy. http://www.anti-cair-net.org/press_009_03
On 14 June, 2003, The Tri-Valley Herald posted
an article to its web site standing by the original
article by reporter
Ms. Lisa Gardiner wherein she quoted the following statement by Mr. Ahmad:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to
any other faith, but to become dominant.
The Koran, the Muslim
of scripture, should be the highest authority in America,
and Islam the
only accepted religion on Earth.”
According to Fremont Editor Mr. Steve
Waterhouse, ANG Newspapers stands by the story. He goes on to say
that Gardiner “did excellent work for us when she was a reporter in the
late 1990’s”. In addition, Ms.
Gardiner stands by her story. She also notes her relations
with the Fremont Muslim community were extremely positive during her
time with ANG Newspapers.
It should be noted that Mr. Ahmad did not
contact ANG Newspapers to dispute the quote until it was reprinted in
an article on WorldNetDaily.com in early May. (The quote was made
on July 04, 1998, nearly five years ago).
Once again, Mr. Ahmad is caught telling the
truth about CAIR and he doesn’t enjoy being exposed. His attempt
to seek a retraction was cut short, and we at ACAIR look forward
to Mr. Ahmad accusing the Tri-Valley Herald of “Islamophobia” -
standard CAIR response to reporting about topics that they dislike.
applauds the Tri-Valley Herald for supporting its reporter and not
retracting the truth in an article which clearly
demonstrates, once again, the religious bigotry and hatred for American
values held by the CAIR leadership. We encourage other newspapers
in America to take up the standard set by the Tri-Valley Herald and
the truth about CAIR.
