CAIR Opposes War in

"Hussein's capture should also facilitate the rapid transfer of sovereignty to a representative Iraqi government and the swift withdrawal of American military forces. It is now time for the Iraqi people, free of despotic rule or foreign occupation, to take control of their own destiny."

Hussein’s capture should also facilitate the rapid transfer of sovereignty to a representative Iraqi government and the swift withdrawal of American military forces. It is now time for the Iraqi people, free of despotic rule or foreign occupation, to take control of their own destiny.
What I would recommend is an immediate transfer or very quick transfer of power of the governing to the Iraqi people, but remain there more as peacekeeping not as an occupying force.
As long as
Once again, CAIR wants it both ways. They welcome the apprehension of Saddam Hussein while at the same time they oppose the war that effected the capture. Would CAIR have preferred that the rape rooms remain open for business? That Muslim women be raped by thuggish rapists in front of their husbands? Muslim children jailed in special “children’s prisons?” Muslims fed into industrial plastic shredders?
Why can’t CAIR be upfront and admit that they support Islamic terrorism and dictatorships? Is CAIR worried that their donation base will dry up if people learn their true agenda? What do these Islamist terrorism supporters have to hide?
CAIR has also called on an “international tribunal court” to hold Saddam Hussein accountable to the Iraqi people. ACAIR does not support this view.
Saddam Hussein is an Iraqi citizen and
the crimes he stands accused of occurred primarily in
Mr. Bedier says that Iraqis are now ready for self-government, but they cannot constitute a court in which to try Hussein?
A predominantly Muslim country cannot field a court capable of fairly judging Hussein?
Would Mr. Bedier care to explain to Muslim Iraqis why he feels they are not capable of handling their own judicial affairs?
We of ACAIR will not be holding our breaths waiting for an answer.
Mr. Bedier goes on to recommend the transfer of governing power to the Iraqi people and that the coalition forces remain in place as a “peacekeeping” force. Interesting.
Mr. Bedier wants the coalition to essentially provide police forces for the new Iraqi government - is he saying that the new government would not be legitimate unless the coalition was there to back it up?
Does Mr. Bedier really
believe that Iraqis would accept coalition troops acting as a police force? - that the American
people would stand for a permanent peacekeeping
Are the Iraqi people so incapable that they will never be able to protect themselves from the terrorist and criminal element? - are Muslims so delicate that they require the permanent protection of predominantly Christian soldiers?
For shame, Mr. Bedier, as a Muslim, you should know better.
Follow up / Six Questions, Where are the Answers, Mr. Hooper?
In press release Nr. 021/03 (dtd August 25, 2003), ACAIR covered the story of Ms. Rachel Neuwirth’s interaction with Mr. Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for CAIR national headquarters. Mr. John Rudolph, ACAIR assistant director, had an opportunity to speak with Ms. Neuwirth recently and asked her if Mr. Hooper had responded to her six questions?
Her reply? “Not yet”
How about it, Mr. Hooper? Would you care to comment?
“In his December
Predictably, CAIR went into immediate attack mode and encouraged people to contact Mr. Harvey and his sponsors to encourage a retraction. The attack had the desired results and Mr. Harvey was quick with the apology, labeling Islam “a religion of peace”.
We of ACAIR believe that there are two faces of Islam, peaceful Islam and the nefarious branch of Islam, Wahhabi Islam, as practiced and supported by the Islamist terrorism supporters of CAIR.
While Mr. Harvey may have felt it necessary to make an on-air apology, we of ACAIR are glad that he did not apologize to CAIR or their fellow travelers.
Interestingly, CAIR has failed to intimidate Dr. Laura Schlessinger into making an apology for her on-air comments regarding a visit to an Islamic mosque by a Christian student. We of ACAIR salute her stand in opposition to the bigoted tactics of CAIR and their supporters.

ACAIR welcomes the news that American special forces are in the lead, taking the war to the enemy and helping to stop attacks in Iraq. We wish our troops, and coalition troops, well in their fight against Islamist religious terror. We thank the Israeli government and the IDF for helping to train our troops in effective counter-terrorism operations.
Typical E-mail to ACAIR / Response
ACAIR receives many e-mail inquiries requesting information on CAIR and CAIR’s terrorism-supporting personalities and policies. However, we occasionally receive e-mail that is a bit out of the ordinary and would like to share the following with our readers:

children as terrorist bombers, but not their own. Arafat’s

8. CAIR is not a peaceful
organization. CAIR supports Islamist terror in word
and deed. Every time a Muslim in this country is
arrested for terrorism, CAIR immediately jumps to their defense, regardless
of guilt. The leadership of CAIR is founded in Islamist
terrorism and wishes to bring this terrorism to the
9. ACAIR is not concerned with Christian sect’s. These groups represent a very small threat to our country and are being handled properly by the authorities. ACAIR condemns all religious terrorism, but we are focused on Islamist terrorism. As for Dr. Laura, we support her comments and believe her response was proper.
ACAIR will fight CAIR until CAIR is destroyed. We have no wish to see our families and country destroyed by Islamist terrorism. We demand the right to worship our God as we see fit and have no desire to see Islam imposed by threat of force on the
