*Hypocrisy Strikes, Again.
CAIR Continues to Publish False Information.
On July 27th, the Council on American Islamic
Relations (CAIR) issued a statement
on President Bush to rescind the nomination of Mr. Daniel Pipes to the
board of the United States Institute of Peace. In the statement,
"CAIR today called on President Bush to withdraw
the nomination of Daniel Pipes to the board of the United States
Institute of Peace after he was quoted by an online news service as
“Islamic people” to “Nazis” and rejecting aid to Afghan civilians.”
The news service that CAIR referred to is
In the retraction, written by Mr.
Scott Hogenson, CNSNews.com Executive Editor, the news service
statements attributed to Mr. Pipes, explaining that the errors are
the result of a review of the audio recording of his speech.
CNSNews explains that Mr. Pipes actually said:
“My view is ‘no, there is no good and bad in militant Islam,’ no
more than there are good and bad Nazis.”
Mr. Hogenson continues:
“Pipes did not say U.S. aid to the Afghans is unnecessary, but
stated: “We have no moral responsibility to the Afghans or the
Iraqis. None. Zero.” In reference to U.S. aid to
Afghanistan and Iraq, Pipes stated: “ I’m not against it in principle…
(but) we should do it in the prism of our own interests, not the Iraqs’
ACAIR finds it
interesting that, once again, CAIR is quick to condemn and slow to
correct the record. When can we expect CAIR to issue a
to their statement? When will CAIR acknowledge the truth?
ACAIR sources reveal that
Ibrahim Hooper was contacted by CNSNews.com, alerting him to the
retraction. CNSNews.com said that in the event of learning of any
public official using this erroneous information, they were prepared to
contact the official and alert them of the error.
(ACAIR would like readers to
know that as of now, CAIR's link and Action Alert in question have
suddenly vanished from their website, with no reference to it
having ever existed.)
*How Many Times Will CAIR Attack
Mr. Daniel Pipes?
A cursory visit to the web site of the Council
on American Islamic Relations (CAIR),
demonstrates that CAIR is continuing its smear campaign against the
nomination of Dr. Daniel Pipes to the US Institute of Peace. For
two months, Americans have watched as CAIR has continued to vilify Dr.
Pipes and called on President Bush to drop his nomination. Too late.
As we celebrate the anticipated appointment of Dr. Pipes to his rightful
place on the board of the U.S. Institute of Peace, the lies from CAIR
concerning Dr. Pipes continue.
A recent Associated
Press story on CAIR's website gave a
quote from Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesperson, on Dr. Pipes:
"It gave us some encouragement that people
are learning about his record, and that when they learn about his
they don't like what they see,"
We have to ask ourselves, what is
it about Dr. Pipes that worries CAIR? What has this man done to
attract such hatred from CAIR?
Dr. Pipes taught himself Arabic, has done
extensive research on radical Islam and warned the country several
months before 9-11 that an attack was possible. How does this
disqualify Dr. Pipes?
"This is an individual that is a lightning rod, highly
controversial," (said one senator)... "When he talks about Muslims
being funny looking, bringing different customs, I am sorry, this is
not the person that ought to be on the U.S. Institute of Peace
Dr. Pipes of course, never said any of these
things, however, they are clear examples of propagandized "talking
points" CAIR provides officials when slandering Dr. Pipes. We will not
have to wait long before we see other misquotes and lies (such as the
CNSNews.com event), being used as additional talking points when
refering to Dr. Pipes. CAIR will never acknowledge any truth about Dr.
Consider: Dr. Pipes warned
Americans several months before the attacks and was largely ignored. He
has provided extensive background on radical Islam and spoken before
the Congress of our country on many occasions regarding the threat of
What has CAIR done?
a. Opposed the
arrest/conviction of every single Muslim arrested or sentenced for
against the people of the United States.
b. Actively supports Hamas.
c. Raises money
to defend terrorism suspects.
d. Claims that Islam is the
only valid religion in the U.S.
e. Joins in frivolous
lawsuits designed to impede the fight against Islamist terror.
all Americans to read into the activities of CAIR and see for
themselves whether CAIR is truly an “Islamic civil rights” group, or
just a slick front for Islamist terror.
ACAIR is confident
that after careful review of ALL the facts, Dr. Pipes is not
only the very best candidate for the U.S. Institute of Peace, he is
a man who truly loves his country and wants nothing but the best for ALL
Americans, regardless of their religious beliefs.
In the short time ACAIR
has been around, we recognize that we have only begun to scratch the
surface in finding out the truth about the Council on American Islamic
Relations (CAIR). We’ve learned that CAIR hates America and every
decent thing that Americans stand for.
CAIR uses our Constitution as a shield to
attack our government, police, and military forces. CAIR has no
respect for American values or traditions…how else to explain Mr. Nihad
Awads’ (Executive Director, CAIR) statement: “I am in support of the
Hamas movement ”? How else to excuse acts of terrorism as
“misunderstandings of both sides” ?
At the birth of our country, Americans fought
from Lexington to Concord, on through victory at Yorktown…In 1812, we
fought a second war that further defended our sovereignty. From
1861 to 1865 our fledgling nation was torn apart as brother fought
brother in the Civil War… In the 20th century, we fought two World Wars
and two wars in Asia.
Our point? Americans have always stood ready
to defend themselves when under attack from all enemies, foreign and
domestic. Many is the time when Americans have been called upon
to defend the defenseless and we’ve always stepped up, stood tall and
done our duty.
We now find ourselves fighting a new
enemy. An enemy that mocks us as they hide behind our
Constitution; an enemy, entrenched and protected by a phalanx of
attorneys and sycophants, ready to pounce at the first sign of our
weakness; an enemy that demands that the police power of the state
defend their “rights”, but would deny these same rights to other
Americans; an enemy that accepts funding and support from foreign
countries that support terrorists - who come to our shores to seek out
and murder us; an enemy who demands nothing less than the destruction
of the very Constitution that they hide behind.
We now live with the Council on American
Islamic Relations, a front group for the Hamas terrorist group. We
live with the America-bashing of Mr. Ibrahim Hooper and his fellow
bigots who hide behind the peaceful religion of Islam and spread their
propaganda. We listen to Islamist cowards demand respect for their
of Wahhabi Islam in the United States.
We don’t listen to the ranting of Osama Bin Laden,
why must we listen to the provocative, insulting statements of Mr.
Nihad Awad? “I support Hamas!”, indeed you do, Mr. Awad and
"thank you" for reminding
Americans, being the most tolerant people on
Earth, accept concepts and notions that other nations wouldn’t even
consider. Let us ask ourselves. “Would a Muslim country accept a
religious non-Islamic group in their country?” Will the day
ever come when Saudi Arabia welcomes the Catholic Church to
Will we ever see a synagogue in Medina?
And yet, we allow the Saudis, through their bought
and paid for terrorist supporters at CAIR, open numerous branches
in America to “protect” the civil rights of Muslims in America.
there be no doubt that CAIR is a terrorist supporting front
organization that is partially funded by terrorists, and that CAIR
wishes nothing more than the implementation
of Sharia law in America.
In all of our wars, we have never
knowingly allowed enemy front groups to operate in our country.
Our President, the leader of our government, the Commander in Chief
of the armed forces, has repeatedly told us we are at war with
let’s take him at his word and demand that Islamist terror front groups
in America be shut down…starting with CAIR.
*"I am in support of the Hamas
movement," Nihad Awad Tells It Like It Is.
Earlier today in Israel, (8/12/03) two separate
attacks - one at a bus stop and one at a mall, were carried out
Hamas, the terrorist group that is dedicated to the
eradication of Israel as a state, claimed responsibility for the second
attack, at the bus stop near the entrance to Ariel, a large Jewish
in the West Bank, east of Tel Aviv.
Nihad Awad, the Executive Director for the Council
on American-Islamic Relations, was quoted as saying "I
am in support of the Hamas movement," clearly telling the world
that CAIR supports the Hamas organization.
ACAIR once again reminds our readers that
CAIR is still supporting Hamas, and they have yet to publicly announce
anything to the contrary. CAIR acts behind a mask of deception,
claiming they are a "muslim civil rights group" when in fact they are
terrorist sympathizers and supporters.
ACAIR wonders why so many top
leaders of CAIR moved to America, some to become naturalized
citizens, and create an organization that openly supports terrorists?
What is their true purpose? What does this mean for
