The Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a press release Wednesday afternoon demanding action against Juan Williams for daring to exercise his 1st Amendment rights to free speech that resulted in Williams’ ouster from National Public Radio (NPR).
“Such irresponsible and inflammatory comments would not be tolerated if they targeted any other racial, ethnic or religious minority, and they should not pass without action by NPR,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.
The CAIR complaint was the catalyst that led to Williams’ firing.
CAIR has long been identified as a Hamas-affiliated Muslim Brotherhood front group through the Texas Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial — the largest terrorism funding trial in U.S. history. CAIR is named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial. The sheer volume of participants in the terrorist fundraising schemes lent itself to a list of co-conspirators subject to prosecution with the same evidence that resulted in the successful prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation in 2008.
The HLF co-conspirators including CAIR currently await trial. At the moment the Obama administration is tied up suing Arizona for enforcing immigration law.
And CAIR is allowed to move about and freely operate in the U.S. — even appearing on Fox News and other media organizations — like NPR — as representatives of “moderate” Islam.
Much has been said about Williams’ firing from NPR for comments not even made on their air, but the connections between the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, CAIR and NPR warrant a closer look.
As previously and extensively reported on HUMAN EVENTS, there is an organized effort underway worldwide orchestrated by a powerful Islamic political body to squelch and even criminalize speech that “offends” Muslims. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations –comprised of kings and heads of state representing 57 member states.
One of its stated goals is to seek to criminalization of speech that violates the archaic tenets of shariah law. The OIC broadcasts its every move on its website. All we have to do is read it.
The OIC’s civilization jihad works through coordinated efforts with jihad groups such as CAIR, the recipient of a reported half-million dollar donation from Prince al-Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia.
According to CAIR’s own press release it launched a new “Islamophobia Department” just 12 days ago to do exactly what was done to Juan Williams.
CAIR and other organizations are using the left’s “useful idiots” and the toxic politically-correct atmosphere in the U.S. to accomplish its goals at “news” organizations such as NPR.
A devastating new report from Christopher Holton and Sarah Pavlis of the Center for Security Policy published at The Hayride gives us a glimpse of the cozy relationship between NPR and the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood through its CAIR front group — a relationship that should concern every American.
“National Public Radio is strongly urging America to get over its apparently rabid case of Islamophobia. On Sunday night’s All Things Considered newscast, anchor Guy Raz played audio clips of Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin opposing the Ground Zero Mosque, and then launched into how much this resembles historic anti-Semitism…
“What Raz does not point out is that Rabiah Ahmed is a former publicist and prominent national spokesperson for the Council for Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), a group named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a terrorist funding case. Raz didn’t so much conduct a news interview with Rabiah Ahmed as much as he joined her in condemning the sad and bigoted state of America today.
“The fact that NPR would act at the behest of CAIR is disturbing, given what we know about CAIR.
“CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization, the Muslim Brotherhood being the original Jihadist organization founded in 1928 in Egypt. The MB is the political wing of the global Jihadist insurgency, with groups like Al Qaeda, HAMAS, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Abu Sayyaf, and Jemmah Islamiyah being the military wing of that insurgency.
“To make an analogy, Al Qaeda is the equivalent of the Waffen SS and the Muslim Brotherhood is the equivalent of the Nazi party.
“CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest successful terrorism financing prosecution in U.S. history, the U.S. versus the Holy Land Foundation.
“CAIR was co-founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad, both of whom were working for the now-defunct Islamic Association for Palestine, which was the Jihadist terrorist group HAMAS’ American affiliate.
“Ahmad is infamous for this quote in a 1998 interview:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
“CAIR opened its first office with seed money provided by the Holy Land Foundation, the same Muslim charity later shut down for terrorism financing activity.
“CAIR is often associated with its spokesman, a guy named Ibrahim Hooper, who once uttered this gem:
“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.”
“Outrageous quotes from people associated with CAIR are not at all unusual in fact. One of CAIR’s board members, Ihsan Bagby, once said:
“Muslims can never be full citizens of this country because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.”
There is much, much more information on CAIR such as successful prosecutions of CAIR operatives as well as NPR’s relationship with other unindicted co-conspirators from the HLF trials.
This is information every single American needs to read.
