CAIR Must be Abolished, and NOW
By: Erik Rush
â€œThe Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a nonprofit 501(c)(4), grassroots civil rights and advocacy group. CAIR is America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, with regional offices nationwide and in Canada. The national headquarters is located on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.
Since its establishment in 1994, CAIR has worked to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America. Through media relations, lobbying, education and advocacy, CAIR puts forth an Islamic perspective to ensure the Muslim voice is represented. In offering this perspective, CAIR seeks to empower the American Muslim community and encourage their participation in political and social activism.â€

This has gotten way out of hand, especially as it becomes clearer as to what this â€œIslamic perspectiveâ€ actually is: Imams taunting airline passengers and personnel, antisocial taxicab drivers and furor over foot baths â€“ and this is just for starters, believe me.
We have seen organizations like the National Council of La Raza (NCLR, www.nclr.org) tout undeniably noble missions such as the reduction of poverty and discrimination, the promotion of opportunities for minorities, free enterprise, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and protection of civil rights â€“ all the while holding a veiled agenda and unquestionably anti-American associations close to their vests. Of course all of these groups claim to condemn all acts of violence against anyone by anyone else, but when one delves into the history and core beliefs of their members and their bedfellows, this is like Al Capone saying he was a businessman who never killed anybody (the latter being untrue regardless, but you get the point).
Since September 11, 2001, and particularly over the last year or two, CAIR has gone into high gear, capitalizing on the cooperation of PC purveyors, the nauseatingly abject fear and intimidation of Americans â€“ and particularly large organizations with money and images to protect â€“ by overreacting to the normally healthy suspicions many Americans have with regard to Muslims in America and Islam in general. In addition, theyâ€™ve joined with the far Left (a conspiracy of mind if not collusion) in attacking Christianity.
If it isnâ€™t enough that the groupâ€™s â€œAbout CAIRâ€ webpage includes the well-spun catch phrase (and major red flag) apropos their opposing â€œracial, ethnic or religious profiling,â€ CAIR recently bullied a CBS affiliate in Tampa, Florida to cancel a Christian television program. The organization was involved in the recent â€œWar on Talk Radioâ€ initiated by far-Lefters in Congress, and has been named by Federal law enforcement in a plot to fund the terrorist organization Hamas. The list of anti-American and borderline or outright nefarious actions and associations in which theyâ€™ve been involved is positively dizzying.
Theyâ€™ve followed the lead and formula of Jesse Jacksonâ€™s nonprofits; although at least some of their funding likely comes from far less legitimate sources, their modus operandi has been to present a clean, corporate image whilst using intimidation and dark coercion (in the form of threat to profits) in pursuit of their objectives. In their case, itâ€™s the undermining of Christianity and American culture as opposed to hard cash or sweetheart deals as in Jacksonâ€™s case.
While their aforementioned veiled agenda is the insinuation of Islam (a word which, letâ€™s not forget, translates into â€œsubmissionâ€) into America rather than the socialist goals of La Raza, it is a supremacist philosophy nonetheless.
â€œIslam isnâ€™t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominantâ€¦ The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.â€
- Omar Ahmad, CAIR Chairman Emeritus, July 2, 1998 (from San Ramon Valley Herald, July 4, 1998)
We are so asleep it is almost incomprehensibleâ€¦
Across the airwaves, well-spoken CAIR representatives exercise all opportunities to come out in support of every Muslim-related cause or â€œvictimizedâ€ faction thereof, claiming and appearing to be simply â€œpeace-loving Muslimsâ€ and â€œpatriotic Americansâ€ who only want to prevent any inordinate backlash as a result of radical factions within their religion. Shades of Capone, again my friends, or perhaps People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA): If someone merely incites, theyâ€™re absolved of any culpability for antisocial behavior on the part of their fellows.
Well, that doesnâ€™t fly. CAIR is the driver of the getaway car that Al-Qaeda used to rob the bank. In similar scenarios all over America, if a police officer is killed in the commission of such a crime, the driver is charged with murder as well.
They are the Klan without robes, Nazis without the swastika. Yet theyâ€™re being treated like a legitimate, viable social organization. These operatives are the consummate duplicitous villains who are intent on destroying us â€“ and the bottom line is that Americans need to wake up.
This dangerous enemy of the United States must be neutralized via revocation of its nonprofit status, its officers charged with treason and jailed. It is for this reason and a host of others that Americans need to become aware of how desperately in need of a housecleaning our Congress is, and mobilize to that end.
CAIRâ€™s Chairman has stated that they plan to take over the world. What more do we need? Letâ€™s stop legitimizing CAIRâ€™s talking heads when they are showcased by America-haters in the press; theyâ€™re simply using the tried-and-true tactics of race-baiting and whining victimhood that have worked so well for other American activists.
The big difference is that the NAACP doesnâ€™t want to convert Americans to a retrograde cult at the point of a gun.
