I was recently asked if I would attend a talk by members of a Muslim civil rights group, to show me how nice and harmless these people really are.
This blog is offered to those folks who think CAIR is just a harmless rights-seeking group representing the interests of poor Muslims that are subject to discrimination. I’ve heard some people refer to them as the ACLU for Islam in America. There’s much more to the story for those who are willing to pull their heads out of the sand, and learn.
Working for The Argus, in Fremont California, reporter Lisa Gardiner wrote an article for the newspaper after covering an Islamic conference in 1998. One of the sessions was titled, “How should we as Muslims live in America.” On the panel, sat the founder of the Council on American-Islamic Affairs, (CAIR). This, in part is what she wrote:
Considered a reputable reporter, Ms. Gardiner has since taken a position as legislative aide for the Democratic Party in California. She has otherwise expressed a positive attitude toward Muslims in general citing the need to learn more about diversity of religions, and claiming her personal interaction with Muslim leaders as “positive and enriching.” The point: This is not some hate-ridden, Islamophobe out to degrade Muslims. Her account is credible. Mr. Ahmad, founder and leader of the group, said a mouthful we should all be wary of.
Before zeroing on CAIR, people should know from where and why they originated. Anyone who knows anything about the global Islamic movement to ultimately establish dominion over the west, knows about the Muslim Brotherhood. Originally based in Egypt, this is a vast organization of extremists who are, in essence, the top brass pulling the strings, establishing organizations, funneling money and coordinating the peaceful takeover of the west via subversive infiltration, as opposed to the use of violence, which they consider a last resort. The basic rule of their methodology, is to present the perception of “moderation” at all times via the practice of deception. To blend in. To apply Taqqiya.
(I welcome readers to google any of this information, or to read many of the books out there written by scholars and investigators knowledgeable in this area, including Daniel Pipes, Paul Sperry, Steve Emerson, Brigitte Gabriel, Robert Spencer, David Horowitz, and more)
The Muslim Brotherhood has set into place, scores of influential organizations to help further the cause of global Jihad, particularly in the west. Among them, is the MSA (Muslim Student Of America) the largest and most powerful student uprising group in our colleges and universities today. Another outgrowth, the most formidable, is the organization known as CAIR.
I have written about this before, but it cannot be emphasized enough. Leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood penned a secret document in 1982, spelling out their plan for establishing world domination. In it, this alarming statement: (source: Wikipedia)
General Strategic Goal for the Group in North america makes the objectives of the MB clear: “The Ikhwan (Arabic brothers) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Among their many strategies, clearly spelled out in their manifesto, are:
One need only to examine the present status of European countries to see the tremendous gains the radical movement has made over the last twenty years. And with unharnessed birth rates, and immigration, the next twenty years will see even greater power shifting to the Islamic world.
That same movement has rooted in within the U.S., under the cloak of the M.B, using its varied organizations such as CAIR, to create fear and intimidation, to raise legal issues in support of Islamic causes, to form a powerful lobby in Washington, and to advance the causes of Islam in America. As in many places in Europe, it may soon be deemed a “hate crime” to voice an opinion which is not to the liking of radical Islamists.
The most glaring example, of course, of the CAIR mission is the incident involving the flying Imams of Minneapolis in November of 2006. It wasn’t so bad that these six men decided to start their praying vigil at the boarding gate before hundreds of boarding passengers. It wasn’t so bad that they had apparently called news camera crews to film the event. It wasn’t even so bad that they disrupted the entire plane by acting like idiots, drawing attention to themselves with loud Arabic conversation, and asking for seat-belt extenders (not needed) which can be used as weapons, and so forth. Passengers were duly alarmed.
What was so bad, was the law suit that followed. CAIR was right there, helping to sue not only the airline, but the passengers as well for alerting the crew to the suspicious behavior. All this, as a legal ploy to muzzle Americans if and when they feel threatened.
If anyone thinks that CAIR wasn’t in on the pre-planning of this event, I still have that ocean front property for sale in Montana.
Daniel Pipes, recognized expert terrorism and Islamic affairs in the U.S., is one of many who has written volumes about CAIR and its sinister goals and methods. CAIR has been a defender of Osama Bin Laden prior to 9/11 and found any criticism of his to be “offensive to Muslims.” (Remember that phrase) CAIR has often been linked to terror organizations, including Hamas. CAIR has been known to intimidate moderate Muslims who reject their extremist agenda. CAIR considered the conviction of those responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, as a “travesty of justice.” CAIR has been there for H. Rap Brown (now Jamil Al-Amin) outraged over his conviction for murdering an Atlanta police officer. Read Pipes’ account, and remember that this is but one of many.
The FBI has recently cut off all contacts with the CAIR group, citing their support of Hamas groups. Robert Mueller, Director of the FBI, is one of the more liberal-minded leaders in Washington D.C. when it comes to accepting and working with Muslims. He has been the subject of criticism for assembling Jew-free translation units so that Muslims don’t have to work side-by-side with Jews. He’s been instrumental in hiring Muslims as agents, even in the wake of one Islamic agent who refused to wear a wire when investigating other Muslims.
The last thing the FBI wants to do is get on the wrong side of the Muslim issue, but it has found this necessary when it comes to CAIR.
To my friends who choose to see life through those rose-colored glasses, it’s time to take them off and see things as they are, not as you wish them to be.
No…I don’t want to sit in on some sanitized lecture by members of CAIR. I know their true agenda. I’ve heard hundreds of criminals tell me they didn’t do it…and sound believable. No more. I’m retired.
But I am deeply concerned about the future of America. You should be too.
