Ahmed Bedier, Pass the Bread, Reject the Bible
In a February article
in Tampa Bay Online,
Karen Dunham is lauded as providing much needed resources to
Palestinian refugees in camps in the Middle East. Dunham, of the
Living Bread International Church, enjoys the cooperation of the
Israeli armed forces and has her headquarters mission in Jerusalem,
mission outposts in Bethlehem, Jericho, and another planned for
Dunham’s group passes out food, clothing, and Bibles to those
who seek her group’s assistance.
Ahmed Bedier, director of the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) Tampa, Florida, chapter, apparently has a problem
with Dunham witnessing to those she is helping with her
outreach. Specifically, Bedier is troubled by Dunham’s
According to Bedier,
are starving people who are not thinking rationally…
they'll do what you say to get the food to keep them alive.
They'll pray with and say they're converted. And likely,
they'll be back at the mosque on Friday."
the Muslim faith of Middle Eastern Muslims so weak that they would deny
it on one day, embrace it the next?
Is this an opinion Bedier has shared with
Middle Eastern Muslims?
Bedier met with one of Dunham’s American volunteers before her
third trip to the Middle East. Among the things Bedier gave her
are a copy of the Koran and a list of “do’s and don’ts” regarding
the Muslim culture.
Ahmed Bedier, the representative of a self-described “Muslim
civil rights group” presumes to tell a Christian to ignore her
faith when ministering to Muslims ... yet expects that same
Christian to observe a list of “do’s and don’ts” when interacting
Bedier wants Dunham’s group to keep their Bibles to themselves,
but sees no problem with giving a Christian volunteer a copy of
the Koran. Did not Bedier think this was Islamic
proselytizing? What other possible reason can there be for
his giving her a copy of the Koran?
Bedier further illustrates his Christophobia:
“You have to
question the motives of people who go
into hostile environments to push their religion,
when there's so much that needs to be done
in this country."
(Keep in mind that Dunham’s car has been bombed and her home blown
up three times)
Bedier enjoys a very comfortable life in the United States.
He represents CAIR, a group with proven
ties to Islamic terrorism and Islamic terrorists; a group
founded by Islamic terrorists, an organization that actively
supports Islamic terrorists and Islamic terrorist groups;
an association supported by Islamic terrorists and Islamic
terrorist groups, an organization that is actively working
to subvert the government of the United States with the ultimate
goal of converting our country into an Islamic theocracy.
Has Bedier ever set foot in the Middle East with a bag of
food, clothes, and religious material to pass out to the
Palestinian people in the refugee camps?
Would Bedier ever give up his very comfortable life in the U.S. to
live a life of danger in the Middle East in response to a higher
What appears to have Bedier so outraged is that it took a Christian
to show CAIR how real outreach works and that the works of God
are definitely not the province of radical Muslims.
Dunham’s Living Bread International Church is everything CAIR is not.
No wonder Bedier is upset ...
