Marching To The CAIR Agenda: From 'Praying Imams' To Muslims Having Their Own 'Prayer Room' At Airports
Who among the wide-awakes in America didn't see this demand for a 'Muslim prayer room" coming? Are we supposed to believe that this wasn't a deliberate effort to test the boundaries of tolerance and to gain special treatment for Muslims that would never be given to other faiths? Quite the contrary, it's quite clear that these six imams have an agenda beyond acceptance of their religion by Americans. And that agenda is identical to CAIR's - the Islamization of America
The moment the six imams were removed from the US Airways flight and detained for doing a hell of a lot more than praying in the airport, we all knew that CAIR (an Islamic terrorist/jihadist-supporting organization) would be using the made-for-media event for propaganda to fulfill their agenda - the Islamization of America:
... like busy little beavers, but very deadly - the Islamists are on task and on the march, whether we choose to recognize it or not. Their war against us is in full swing, even while we sit back and yawn as though it isn't real. The problem is that it is very real, and is not going to stop unless we choose to stop it - in time. Even within our own borders, they use our freedoms and legal systems against us, and when they've finished their deadly mission, sharia will be in place, and the U.S. Constitution will be gone. The threat is as much against Muslims that support a secular government that separates religion from politics, as it is against non-Muslims that refuse to submit to Islam.That the entire "praying imams" event fits squarely in the Islamist agenda to use our freedoms and legal systems against us and was planned, is evidenced by the almost immediate request by Muslim Congressman-elect Keith Ellison to meet with executives of US Airways and the Metropolitan Airports Commission. The "playing out of an agenda" has been so obvious that it was actually hypothesized in an Investors Businesss Daily editorial, then proven. Powerline wrote of IBD's hypothesis:
... Within 48 hours Ellison has taken the first steps to prove the shrewdness of the editorial's hypothesis that the underlying incident was fabricated for the benefit of an agenda to be advanced by Ellison. I'm afraid that it's time to scream bloody murder before the flying imams and their friends in high places turn the incident into the means by which citizens are disabled from taking reasonable action to defend themselves from apparent danger.And as obvious as it is that we should be concerned that incidents are used to facilitate conditions in which "citizens are disabled from taking reasonable action to defend themselves from apparent danger," it is also very obvious that we should be alert to an agenda to gain special treatment for Muslims that would never be given to other faiths. Using our "busy beaver" analogy, no radical Islamic group in the U.S. stands out more than CAIR, which has been intimately involved in using the entire "praying imam" event to further their radical Islamic agenda. CAIR is a supporter and an apologist for radical Islam, and a proponent of the Islamization of America, along with the establishment of sharia, Islamic law, in America.
Let's not be fooled - CAIR is not what it pretends to be:
It is not a group fighting for equal rights for Muslim-Americans. It is not a group trying to protect the interests of Muslims in America. It is not a group promoting human rights for anyone.According to Khalid Duran (who is a Muslim), in an article entitled, "How CAIR Put My Life in Peril," published in the Middle East Forum:
It is a group whose real mission is changing the very character of America - remaking it in the image of the Islamo-fascists who fund them from Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.
You will never hear a nice word about America from the Council on American-Islamic Relations. It's a hate group. It spends all or most of its time and resources denigrating America, condemning it as a pariah state that exploits and oppresses Muslims.
According to CAIR, America is a terrible place for Muslims. At the same time, CAIR boasts Islam is the fastest-growing religion in America. It makes you wonder: If conditions for Muslims are so bad in America, why is Islam so popular? Why are Muslims flocking from all parts of the world to the United States - this hideous concentration camp for Muslims?
I'll tell you why. Many Muslims have come here and continue to come here to escape the Islamo-fascism of places like Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia - places about which CAIR never has a bad word to say.
CAIR was late to the party in condemning Osama bin Laden for the Sept. 11 terror attacks. It finally got around to it three months after the fact. Don't expect to hear any CAIR officials condemn suicide bombings by the terrorists in Hamas. The founder of this organization is on record in support of the goals and tactics of Hamas.
CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper indicated in a 1993 interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he wants the United States to become a Muslim country.
"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," Hooper told the Star Tribune. "But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education."
Founded in 1994, CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association of Palestine, identified as a "front group" for the terrorist group Hamas, according to Steve Pomerantz, former chief of the FBI's counterterrorism section.
Another ex-FBI counterterrorism chief, Oliver "Buck" Revell, has called the Islamic Association For Palestine - Hooper's former employer - "a front organization for Hamas that engages in propaganda for Islamic militants."
CAIR advisory board member Siraj Wahhaj was named by U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White on Feb. 2, 1995, as one of the "unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators in the attempt to blow up New York City monuments," including the World Trade Center in 1993.
How seriously can we take the charges of a group that called the conviction of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers "a travesty of justice"? How seriously can we take a group that called the conviction of Omar Abdel Rahman, who conspired to blow up New York City landmarks, a "hate crime"? How seriously should we take a group about which Steven Pomerantz, former FBI chief of counter-terrorism, says: "CAIR, its leaders and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups"?
CAIR is the principle front organization of a coalition of Islamist (or fundamentalist Muslim) groups that have taken root in America over the past two decades. Most are spin-offs of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), such as the American Muslims for Jerusalem, the Holy Land Foundation, and the Islamic Institute. These are extreme groups, and some have even come under federal investigation for alleged support of Middle Eastern terrorism. But CAIR's mission has differed from the others: its special assignment is the insinuation of the Islamist agenda into mainstream American politics. Like the many front organizations established by the Soviet Union in its heyday, CAIR works to give a "white bread" image to advocates of illiberal and even radical ideas.Keep in mind that the comments that CAIR's "special assignment is the insinuation of the Islamist agenda into mainstream American politics" and that ""it works to give a "white bread" image to advocates of illiberal and even radical ideas" - is coming from a Muslim."" And exactly as described by Khalid Duran, CAIR reacted to the "praying imams" event and is using it to insuate the Islamist agenda into mainstream American politics - in this case a newly-elected Muslim Congressman. And as Daniel Pipes has warned of in the past, CAIR and the "praying imams" are attempting to gain special treatment for Muslims that would never be given to other faiths - a "Muslim prayer room." It's just another case of CAIR and Muslims such as Congressman-elect Keith Ellison following an agenda that, as described by Ibrahim Abdul Mu'min, a Muslim - as "victimization" of Muslims instead of helping Muslims to become part of the "American Fabric":
CAIR is run by a duo. The executive director, Nihad Awad, is a Palestinian; his associate, Ibrahim ("Dougie") Hooper, is an American convert. Awad actively propagates the cause in Arabic, while Hooper handles most of the English-language work. To create the perception that CAIR speaks for Islam in America, the two indefatigably issue position statements on anything remotely touching on Muslim or Arab affairs, reacting on everything from U.S. foreign policy to letters in college newspapers. ( More here ...
CAIR should be helping Muslims to become part of the "American Fabric", to co-operate, and integrate into our society. Instead, CAIR pushes them into a kind of emotional helplessness, trying to force upon them the unpleasant gratification of feeling themselves victims...victimized, but at the same time with a sort of lurking, sardonic consciousness that the "victim" is stronger than the "victimizer" In the end the victims pull down their victimizer like a pack of hyenas on an unwary lion.Our own politcal correctness, freedoms, and legal systems are being used and manipulated by a minority of Muslims that are pretending to speak in the interest of all Muslims, presenting Muslims as victims, with a mission to change the very character and fabric of America - making it in the image of the Islamofascists. Their mission can only be accomplished if we let it happen. If we fail to stop CAIR and their Muslim accomplices at every single step they make toward inching their way to their ultimate goal, the Islamization of America, we will have no one but ourselves to blame.
The victimization, however, is false...it doesn't exist. The Muslims are the victims in this case, but the real victimizer is CAIR itself...they know it. Cursed are the falsely meek...don't let them inherit the earth. Expose their Wahabi Saudi backed agenda.
MUSLIMS ARE NOT IN DANGER FROM AMERICA OR IN AMERICA!
AMERICA AND MUSLIMS ARE IN DANGER FROM CAIR! (emphasis is in Ibrahim Abdul Mu'min's comments)
As I wrote in a previous post in which I quoted Daniel Pipes:
"While Muslim demands to change our history and accomodate their religious sensitivities may seem relatively minor in and of themselves, implying no drastic alterations in existing American arrangements but rather only slight adjustments in our already expansive accommodation of social "diversity," cumulatively, however, by whittling away at the existing order, they would change the country's whole way of life--making Islam a major public presence, ensuring that both the workplace and the educational system accommodate its dictates and strictures, adapting family customs to its code of conduct, winning it a privileged position in American life, and finally imposing its system of law.Muslims deserve the same, and no greater, rights and freedoms that the all non-Muslims enjoy, but no more. We cannot allow Muslims such as Congressman-elect Keith Ellison and Muslim groups such as CAIR, to change our way of life or to award Islam a privileged position in American life.
