Defense of the Constitution
012/07 May 5, 2007
On May 2, Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of the Chicago Office of the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), North America's largest
Islamist terrorist supporting group, had an article
published titled Freedom is not spelled “Feardom”
on-line edition of the Middle East Times.
In the article, Rehab writes:
9/11, anti-Muslim hysteria has evolved from a collective knee-jerk
reaction to a premeditated and coordinated cottage industry, patronized
agenda-driven elite seeking political - sometimes financial - gain. In
hostile climate, "suspicion" of Muslims - as opposed to evidence of our
wrongdoing - is
apparently cause enough to demand that we be stripped of our right to
on our nation's beacon of democracy and pluralism, Capitol Hill.”
Rehab, as usual, completely misstates the case for American Muslims by
implying that a “hostile environment” is preventing American Muslims
from having their voices heard in the nation’s capitol.
Rehab does not offer even one single instance where CAIR’s voice was
actually shut down on Capitol Hill.
So much for “suspicion” of Muslims?
Rehab is upset that Republicans were
pressing House Speaker Pelosi
to not allow CAIR to host an educational panel on The Hill dealing
with a public opinion poll conducted by the British Broadcasting
Corporation. Rehab conveniently forgets the fact that several
prominent Democrats including Senators Durbin, Boxer and Schumer have
faced great criticisms for standing up to CAIR’s nefarious agenda.
The anti-CAIR movement in the congress is largely a
bipartisan effort as a result of CAIR’s active support for
America’s enemies in the battle against Islamist terror. CAIR is
trying to drive a wedge between liberals and conservatives and is
finding that members of the congress are “on to the con” and are beginning to distance
themselves from CAIR’s hateful messages.
The reason reasonable congressional representatives were opposed
to CAIR's “educational panel” taking place on
government property is not because of the topic, but who was
hosting it: CAIR.
A significant minority of the congress has, rightfully, recognized
CAIR’s role in Islamic terrorism and they are concerned enough to
want to ensure that CAIR’s odious presence is not welcome in the
Just as the country would not invite David
Duke to lecture us about “Jewish rights”, why should we allow CAIR to
lecture us on “Muslim rights”? CAIR is not a Muslim civil rights
group; CAIR is an Islamist
protection group; to pretend
otherwise is an insult to the majority of peaceful North American
are not members of CAIR and whom do not subscribe to CAIR
representing their interests.
Radical Islam has not earned the right to lecture free people anywhere,
anytime, on any subject. As
supporters of radical Islam, CAIR has no right to lecture anyone
about the rights of peaceful Muslims whom CAIR does not represent…and
asks, “… just
what is an “apologist for terror?”
The answer is simple: any person, or group
that rises up to defend Islamist terrorists, terrorist groups, or
provides aid and comfort
to those who advance radical Islam by force
or terror is
an “apologist for terror”.
CAIR not only meets this definition…they are
living it, every single day ...
