    CAIR:  Chairman Elected to Board of ACLU – Florida

     On March 8, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced that National Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed has been elected to the board of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida (ACLU – Florida). 

     Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) views this election of Ahmed with great interest.  We note that both the ACLU and CAIR have opposed every common sense effort of Americans to defend themselves from Islamic terrorism. 


     - The ACLU and CAIR oppose targeting of illegal immigrants in our country; illegal immigrants are a grave national security threat.  We note that CAIR does not and has not called on Muslim-majority governments to allow unfettered illegal immigration.  Hypocrisy?

     - Both organizations oppose the use of local Police agencies to enforce immigration law.  Illegal immigrants are guilty of breaking the law by their simple presence in our country.  CAIR has nothing to say about Muslim countries using their local police to apprehend illegal immigrants.  Double standard? 

     -  Mutually opposed the original Patriot Act and now oppose the renewal.  Despite our country being at war with Islamic terrorists, neither organization is willing to stand with their fellow Americans to defend those things worth defending; family, community, and country.

     -  ACLU and CAIR protest the detention of Muslim terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on Constitutional grounds.  However, does the Constitution provide protection to terrorists located overseas being held by American forces?  If not, do the Geneva Conventions apply?  (The Geneva Conventions provide no protection to terrorists; specifically, terrorists are enemy combatants and civilized countries recognize that they deserve no protections.  This is as it should be.)

     CAIR, birthed from the Islamic Association of Palestine and a front for radical Islam in the United States and Canada is unashamedly anti-American by both action and word. 

    CAIR has never apologized, or explained, the several Muslim criminals convicted on Islamic terrorism charges they have had on staff…how many more are waiting for their chance to attack Americans?  Which of us may be the next victim?

     CAIR is consistently on the wrong side in the war on Islamic terror; along with the ACLU, we can expect nothing but obstruction and opposition to common-sense initiatives to further prevent Islamic terrorist attacks on North America and deliberate attempts by both to provide extra-legal protections to Muslim terrorists.

     The war on Islamic terror is a black and white issue.  You either stand with America or you do not.  We do not have the luxury of debating policy with America bashing groups or individuals; time is running out.

     CAIR & the ACLU:  A marriage made in hell and consecrated on the bodies of dead Americans. 

     How many more Americans will be endangered by this alliance?

     To those who say that this is not an alliance between CAIR and the ACLU, ask yourself this question:  “Would the ACLU have bothered with Ahmed if he weren’t chairman of CAIR?” 

     Case closed ...
