CAIR: U.S. Muslims Can Never be Guilty of Any Crime
The Christian Science Monitor recently carried
a column on the problem of baby formula theft in the United
States. Ordinarily, Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) wouldn't have an interest in
this story, but the ridiculous
statement of Rabia Ahmed of the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) left us no choice but to respond.
“Is black-market baby formula financing
terror?” details how the theft rings work and
provides some background on many of those whom have been caught
recently. Surprisingly, considering their small numbers in the
U.S., a significant number of the ringleaders are Muslims from the
Middle East and many of them are suspected of sending theft profits to
support terrorist groups overseas and in North America.
So what did CAIR’s Ahmed say that caught our
say that - 'Oh, there's a chance that these funds went to fund
terrorism because there are terrorist groups
active in this country' - is
irresponsible. We've seen many cases like this, where a prominent
has been charged with horrible things,
but it ends up being some kind of immigration technicality."
Just what did this ridiculous statement have
to do with the article?
Note that Ahmed also characterizes violations
of immigration law as “some kind of immigration technicality”.
So there you have it: The standard CAIR line
that infers that there is no way any Muslim can ever commit any crime
in the United States at any time and that any possible hint of a
violation by a Muslim must be an “immigration technicality”.
However, what if Muslim
criminals are stealing milk and other retail goods, just what are
they doing with the profits?
The above article link tells the story of two
brave officers who spent many years dismantling a retail theft ring
that specialized in stealing baby formula and other retail items using
a highly organized gang. The article also relates the suspicion
that the illegal profits are being used to fund terrorism.
So, once again, we see that CAIR is
ready to jump to the defense of any Muslim, accused of any crime,
anywhere in the West, regardless of the charge or circumstances.
How nice it must be to be a Muslim terrorist in North America and know
that no matter how heinous your crime, how illegal your activities or
how treasonable your speech, you have a friend in CAIR.
On Nov. 14, 2004, FBI Director Robert
Mueller gave a speech in Los Angeles, California during which he had
this to say about the link between baby formula theft and terrorist
"Often there is a
nexus between criminal activity and terrorism. We see organized
crime laundering money
for drug groups, drug groups selling weapons to terrorists, terrorists
committing white-collar fraud to raise
money for their operations. In a number of our cases, the
subjects of these investigations are suspected
of providing financial support to terrorist organizations such as Hamas
and Hezbollah. As you can see,
frequently these investigations are not just criminal, but are also
these diverse and symbiotic threats is not easy. It means intelligence
more important than ever."
Now we can all see,
once again, why it is so important to cast off our rose-colored glasses
and see just exactly what CAIR is ...
