Revisiting ''CAIR Doesn't Like The Term 'Islamic Fascist'''

Originally posted at Hyscience.

On August 10 we posted "CAIR Goes Balistic Over Bush Remark." At the time, the cable media had CAIR Nihad Awad explain why his orgainization was upset with President Bush's remark. Not only were his comments unconvincing, his credentials to represent "moderate" Muslims are less than impressive, something that Fox and the other cable media failed to point out (if they even did their homework). What Fox and the rest of the cable media failed to point out was that wherever Nihad Awad goes, he brings with him a lot of baggage. Thanks to the work of counter-terror expert Steven Emerson, Awad's ties to an overseas Palestinian fanatical group have become legend.

Now, thanks to "Intelsum" (a reader in our Forum), you can revisit the interviews via the following videos.

From FNC 8/14/6 - Islamofascist CAIR Doesn't Like the Term " Islamic Fascist" - CAIR Terrorist Front Objects to Use of the Term "Islamic Fascist":

From FNC 8/12/6 - CAIR Terrorist Apologist Blames Israel - CAIR Terrorist Apologist Blames Israel while Russians and Chinese are Arming Hizballah through Iran:

CAIR continues to present itself as an advocate for Muslims' civil rights and the spokesman for American Muslims. "We are similar to a Muslim NAACP," says its communications director, Ibrahim Hooper. Its official mission--"to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding"[2]--suggests nothing problematic. However, the real agenda of CAIR, as with the backgrounds of it's leaders, is very problematic to the West"

Starting with a single office in 1994, CAIR now claims thirty-one affiliates, including a branch in Canada, with more steadily being added. In addition to its grand national headquarters in Washington, it has impressive offices in other cities; the New York office, for example, is housed in the 19-story Interchurch Center located on Manhattan's Riverside Drive.

But there is another side to CAIR that has alarmed many people in positions to know. The Department of Homeland Security refuses to deal with it. Senator Charles Schumer (Democrat, New York) describes it as an organization "which we know has ties to terrorism." Senator Dick Durbin (Democrat, Illinois) observes that CAIR is "unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with groups that are suspect." Steven Pomerantz, the FBI's former chief of counterterrorism, notes that "CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups." The family of John P. O'Neill, Sr., the former FBI counterterrorism chief who perished at the World Trade Center, named CAIR in a lawsuit as having "been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism"[6] responsible for the September 11 atrocities. Counterterrorism expert Steven Emerson calls it "a radical fundamentalist front group for Hamas."

Of particular note are the American Muslims who reject CAIR's claim to speak on their behalf. The late Seifeldin Ashmawy, publisher of the New Jersey-based Voice of Peace, called CAIR the champion of "extremists whose views do not represent Islam." Jamal Hasan of the Council for Democracy and Tolerance explains that CAIR's goal is to spread "Islamic hegemony the world over by hook or by crook." Kamal Nawash, head of Free Muslims Against Terrorism, finds that CAIR and similar groups condemn terrorism on the surface while endorsing an ideology that helps foster extremism, adding that "almost all of their members are theocratic Muslims who reject secularism and want to establish Islamic states." Tashbih Sayyed of the Council for Democracy and Tolerance calls CAIR "the most accomplished fifth column" in the United States. [And Stephen Schwartz of the Center on Islamic Pluralism writes that "CAIR should be considered a foreign-based subversive organization, comparable in the Islamist field to the Soviet-controlled Communist Party, USA."

The American Center for Democracy (ACD) has developed a new program called the Terror-Free Oil Initiative (TFOI). The purpose of the program is twofold: 1. to cut off the flow of money that goes to terrorists and 2. to decrease America's dependency on foreign oil. As stated on the ACD website, "This project is dedicated to encouraging Americans to buy only gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism."

Nearly five years after the tragedy of September 11th, little has changed. The companies that were importing Middle Eastern oil still are, and the companies that weren't still are not. This is according to the latest information available from the EIA. And it should be noted that, of the companies that are, BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, Marathon and Shell get crude straight from Saudi Arabia - the same Saudi Arabia that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers - the same Saudi Arabia which gives millions to Hamas - the same Saudi Arabia that actively spreads its radical jihadist/Wahhabist ideology throughout the world, including the United States.

Besides Saudi Arabia, a number of other Middle Eastern nations, where oil is imported from, have dubious track records. Information derived from the U.S. State Department's '22nd annual Report to the Congress on Voting Practices at the United Nations,' underscores the antipathy towards the United States these nations harbor. The following are facts found within the report:
