Who cares what CAIR thinks?!
It is well past time for them to roll up their tents, pack their camels and “migrate” their Sharia loving selves back out of America while they still have the opportunity.
Quote Omar Ahmad of CAIR: “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.”
Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz’s bill seeking to classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group is discriminatory, leaders of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) claimed at a press conference on Wednesday.
According to Nihad Awad, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and CAIR’s spokesman Ibrahim Hooper, “We believe it has little to do with national security or terrorism.”
Awad sees Cruz’s bill as part of a two-step strategy to designate the Muslim Brotherhood and then attack the groups and their leaders who “Islamophobes have falsely labeled as linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Solid and factual evidence, links CAIR and many other American Islamist groups to the Brotherhood.
A phone book introduced at 2008 Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Hamas fundraising trial revealed that CAIR’s Executive Director Nihad Awad and fellow CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. This committee came into existence as part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to support Hamas in America.
U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis noted in a 2009 ruling that the HLF trial evidence provided “at least a prima facie case as to CAIR’s involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas.”
Awad defended the Muslim Brotherhood at the press conference, saying it has been “part in parcel of the democratic process” that it believes in democracy. Banning it for ideological reasons “is nothing short of shooting ourselves in the foot as the biggest democracy or the strongest democracy in the world.”.
Senator Cruz’s bill would direct the secretary of state to officially inform Congress that the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization.
President Trump has already signed the Executive Order which will curtail immigration and visas from majority Muslim countries such as Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Iran. With the exception of Iran, all of these countries have barely functioning central governments and are in the midst of raging civil wars. They also contested President Trump’s order halting the processing of Syrian refugees and ordering the creation of safe zones inside Syria for them.
Awad cast the orders as “anti-Muslim” and “bigoted”. “Never before in our country’s history (NOT SO FAST, AWAD!, see U.S. Code>Title 18> Chapter12> Subchapter II> Part II>§ 1182, below) have we purposely as a matter of policy imposed a ban on immigrants or refugees on the basis of religion or imposed a litmus test on those coming to this nation”. Awad went on to say, “The orders will tarnish our image in the Muslim world, making us seem uncaring and hard-hearted.” Applicable Laws noted below!
