Another Reason to CAIR
By: Michael John McCrae
Two articles today about the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) reminded me that I should be caring about what Muslims in America are up to. The first article was entitled: â€œHouse Republicans accuse Muslim group of trying to plant spiesâ€ by Jordy Yager, reporting on â€œThe Hillâ€ website.
We already know that radical Islamists work within societies to bring them down. They integrate, learn and then destroy. September 11th, 2001 taught us that hard lesson. Of course, it is a lesson we have since seemed to have forgotten. Fortunately, we have people in the country who care enough about Islamic infiltration to investigate and write books to keep the public informed of the schemes of radicals. Apparently there are still a few members of congress who see the possible threat and are willing to voice their concerns.
Form the article: â€œRepublican members of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus said the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has tried to plant â€œspiesâ€ within key national-security committees in order to shape legislative policy. Reps. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), John Shadegg (R-Ariz.), Paul Broun (R-Ga.) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), citing the book Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld thatâ€™s Conspiring to Islamize Americaâ€¦are specifically focused on the House Homeland Security Committee, Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee.â€
First, it is good to see the concern, but it is sad that the concern doesnâ€™t seem to affect the democratic side of the congress. One of the first major speeches of the Obama Administration was directed toward the countries of the Middle East to assure them that Palestinians were going to receive preferential treatment in any deal made with Israel. It doesnâ€™t seem to matter that the Palestinians are essentially being led by terrorist organizations.
Too, one of Obamaâ€™s initial Executive Orders was for the closing of the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This made the Muslim community at large smile, but thereâ€™s still no concrete plan for the disposition of the terrorists who remain in that facility. Then there was the indifference shown to the protestors in Iran who tried to change their Islamic theocracy into a more democratic society. Rather than support those wanting â€œchangeâ€, the Obama Administration allowed the status quo through their silent inaction.
It is possible that all these incidents were somehow influenced from within the government by those very sympathetic to the goals of Muslim supremacy. CAIR has repeatedly shown through its actions a propensity to value the ideals of radical Islamism. From the article: â€œEarlier this year, the FBI cut off communication with CAIR out of concern that the group had ties with Hamas.â€
Part of the book, cited by title above concerns a case in America few have probably heard about. [Rep] â€œMyrick requested that the Justice Department share with all lawmakers and their chiefs of staff an executive summary of the findings that led the department to name CAIR as a co-conspirator in an anti-terrorism case. She said the Justice Department identified CAIR as an â€œun-indicted co-conspiratorâ€ in the Holy Land Foundation case in Dallas, which concluded with the sentencing of the two founders of the foundation to life in prison for funneling $12 million to Hamas, which the U.S. has labeled a terrorist organization.â€
The Representatives are being called â€œbigotsâ€ by those defending CAIR and the American Muslim community in general. But there is a difference. The American Muslim community in general is peacefully and legally involved in spreading the tenants of Islam to the nation. CAIR is using the law to directly support known terrorists and spread radicalism. They also work very hard to lobby businesses to stop anyone who dares to speak against the more radical aspects of the Islamic religion. You should read the entire article.
Which brings me to the second article posted on the World Net Daily website entitled: â€œCAIR spent $160,000 to silence Savageâ€ by Art Moore which began: â€œAn explosive new book based on a daring six-month undercover operation exposing the subversive agenda of the Council on American-Islamic Relations reveals the Muslim group spent $160,000 in an unsuccessful effort to run top-rated nationally syndicated radio host Michael Savage off the air.â€
This article cites the book and the efforts of the Republican Members of the house to find out the true value and agenda of CAIR, but concentrates on Michael Savage, author and radio personality who has done his own research and found radical Islam working overtime to infiltrate and change American society.
Now I havenâ€™t read the cited book, but I have read Michael Savage and I largely agree with his assessments of radical Islamism and how radicals have bastardized the Koran for their own selfish ends. Seeing CAIR attack someone known for simply reporting truth is a reminder that CAIR doesnâ€™t particularly ascribe to truth.
My opinion is whatever it takes to determine any Muslim threat to America it should be done. If CAIR really cares about American/Islamic relations, they would assist America in keeping itself constitutionally sound. They would also be telling the Islamic communities of the Middle East to forget about war make peace with Israel and stop strapping bombs to their ten-year-old children.
If CAIR continues to raise money for terrorists and continues to lobby congress for the establishment of an Islamic Theocracy, it might be time to deport the entire organization to wherever will be the new Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
