Founder: My Battle Against Hate
April of 2003, Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) has been bringing you the
facts about America’s largest Islamic hate group: the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR is a well funded group
that sympathizes with Hamas, a notorious Muslim terrorist group that
claims a mandate from God to kill anyone not living up to a radical,
repulsive, and perverted brand of Islam: Wahhabism. CAIR has had
many senior officials tried, convicted, and sentenced to lengthy prison
terms on terrorism and other charges.
Why do I restate what is common, public
Several days ago, I received an e-mail from an
interested reader calling my attention to comments made by CAIR about
the founder of the web site Jihad
Watch, Robert Spencer.
Spencer is the director of
and his latest book, “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the
Crusades)” appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. He has
also authored several other books on Islam.
CAIR’s problem with Spencer?
Read what CAIR had to say here )
What’s wrong with
First, it’s misdirected.
Read CAIR’s complaint carefully and you will
not find one single statement attributed to Spencer. Not
one. How can Spencer be held reponsible for something he didn’t
say? Only CAIR has the temerity to ascribe blame to what doesn’t
Secondly, CAIR faults Spencer for commentary
made to the forums on the Jihad Watch web site. Again, how can
Spencer be responsible for something he didn’t author? Is CAIR
beginning to believe their own propaganda?
Finally, America is a free country…we have
what no Muslim country on Earth has ever had, or presently has: a
constitution that guarantees the right to free speech. If CAIR
doesn’t like what Spencer has to say and believes it to be “hate
speech”, why doesn’t CAIR file a complaint with law enforcement?
CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush says
that CAIR would be glad to suggest the names of “credible Muslim
scholars” to speak about Islam.
Before anyone takes CAIR’s offer seriously,
let’s read the words of CAIR’s own leadership:
Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesperson: “CAIR
does not support these groups publicly.” (Comments on
record of supporting Hamas, Hezbullah and other Islamic terrorist
Hooper, again: "I wouldn't want to
create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United
States to be Islamic sometime in the future...”
Omar Ahmad, CAIR Co-founder: "Those who
stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping
Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to
live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam
... Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to
become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should
be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted
religion on Earth."
Ghazi Khankan, CAIR spokesperson: “I
bring you salaams and greetings from the Mujahadeen at CAIR”.
There you have it, four very bigoted, hateful,
repugnant, and anti-American statements by three of CAIR’s senior
officials that are well-documented…yet CAIR attacks Spencer and dares
to suggest itself responsible enough to recommend speakers on Islam?
How dare they!
- Supported Christian groups calling for
“jihad” against Muslims?
- Demanded that Christianity be the dominant
religion in the United States?
- Defended Christians who have committed
terrorist acts based on their faith?
But we can point to numerous instances where
CAIR has lent moral support to Islamic terrorist groups…and yet CAIR
largely gets a pass from the American people. Why?
Our country is at war.
In the rush to respect
the rights of those
whom deserve no respect, we have forgotten our obligation to the
victims of Islamist terror.
Let us not forget the images of our citizens
jumping from the twin towers or burning to death in the Pentagon.
What of the brave example of those who fought
back, falling to their deaths in a field in Pennsylvania?
The victims deserve better.
worthy of the legacy they’ve left us?
