CAIR Condemns Terror… Again?

On May 13, 2004, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued an action alert calling on Muslims to sign a petition disassociating the faith of Islam from the violent acts of a few Muslims. 


     How nice.  CAIR is finally condemning militant Islamist terrorism?  Well…not exactly.  They are inviting Muslims to sign the petition and the petition fails to mention even one militant Islamist terrorist or group by name. 

     Just why cannot CAIR bring themselves to ever condemn a militant Islamist or an Islamist terror group by name? 

     CNSNEWS put out an interesting story about this issue.  Hussein Ibish, spokesman for the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee was on Fox News’s Neil Cavuto show this past Thursday, along with CAIR’s Communications Director, Ibrahim Hooper.  Ibish had this to say:

“The attacks in Riyadh, in Morocco, in Amman and in Syria are really starting to annoy a lot of people who might have shrugged or might not have cared so much.”

     We find it absolutely incredible that a spokesperson for a major Islamic group in the United States would say that the terror-murders of innocent people is starting “to annoy a lot people”.  What does he mean by his statement? 

     The terror-murders of Muslims by militant Islamists isannoying”?

     No, “annoying” is when mosquitoes invade your picnic.  We can think of many words to describe militant-Islamist terror-murders and “annoying” isn’t on the list.


     We wonder: would Ibish like to speak to the families of 9-11 and see how “annoyed” they are? 

     “Annoyed”, indeed!   

     …once again, we gain further insight into the mind of militant Islam.
