Larry Shaw; Useful Idiot or Co-conspirator?
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
has recently elected State Senator Larry Shaw as the
organizations new chairman. Is Senator Shaw a “useful idiot” or a
co-conspirator in CAIR plans for converting
North America into an
in the News & Observer
(North Carolina), Shaw appears to be a low-key chairman; as Shaw puts
it, “I fly beneath the radar…that suits my style”.
CAIR often describes itself as the
nation’s “leading Muslim civil rights advocacy group” despite the fact
that CAIR represents
fewer than one-tenth of one percent of North
American Muslims and is arguably the leading
pro-Islamist terrorist supporting front
group in North America. The exposure of CAIR's connections to the Hamas
terrorist group are portrayed by CAIR as being "Islamophobia" led by a
small group of critics.
to the truth of CAIR’s complicity in the
Holy Land trial, Shaw has stated that CAIR rejects the accusation and
first order of business will be to clear the group’s name”. Shaw never acknowledges court
presented by the FBI in which CAIR founders Awad and
Ahmad pledge and plot in support of Hamas, and Shaw goes on to dismiss
reservations about CAIR saying, “It’s straight out of the
playbook they use for all the civil rights groups…this is nothing
new…if they had anything, they would have acted on it and shut us down.”
The United States government has tied
CAIR to Hamas and has refused to back down to CAIR’s demands that
removed from a list of co-conspirators. Still fuming, CAIR, under
guise of a new "coalition" of dubious Islamist Muslim groups called
the "American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections" (AMT),
now sought to intimidate
the FBI with a threat of suspending "outreach"
programs of several Muslim groups if the FBI does not re-open it's
doors to CAIR.
Shaw, much like Nihad Awad and Ibrahim Hooper, compares
CAIR to civil rights groups led by
men such as Martin Luther King (MLK). This is both disingenuous and a
comparison. MLK fought for equality of opportunity based on the content
of a man’s character; CAIR fights for Islamic supremacy based
religious fanaticism of the ideology of political Islam; an
cult that, to this day, advocates for the imposition of Sharia law
Shaw is portrayed as having a “fine personality” and is a person who
does not back Muslims “reflexively” and who is “willing to
criticize dictatorial countries as well as Hamas’ practice of firing
rockets into Israel”.
clue to Shaw’s election to CAIR Chairman is
“…some have suggested
Shaw was chosen to lead CAIR precisely because
he can soften its
sometimes combative image.”
Khalilah Sabra, director of
the local chapter of Muslim American Society’s Freedom Foundation, says
of Shaw: “Shaw’s role with CAIR is to give them a balanced
perspective…he can mentor them on how to transcend certain cultural
Consider, CAIR shamelessly supports Hamas, Islamist terrorism and
terrorists. How do you
“balance perspective” with a clear record of defending pure,
unadulterated, religious evil committed in the name of a false, hateful
Shaw says of being a Muslim in the United
States, “Not everybody’s cut out for this…(adding that being a Muslim
Really? Can Shaw point to
credible anti-Islamic conspiracy in North America?
Neither can CAIR. Simply
because none exist.
What Shaw can point out is that there are many
groups, Anti-CAIR among them,
who stand opposed to what Larry Shaw has chosen to represent; political
Islam in the form of a terrorist supporting front group created for
FBI evidence and
parroting CAIR's denials of it's terrorist origins, we tend to
believe that Larry Shaw is a “useful idiot” in that he clearly does not
understand what he has gotten himself into. If he
does understand, he has gone far beyond being a simple co-conspirator.
Beware. The new “softer side”
of CAIR is
