Update: CAIR Applauds West Point Prayer Breakfast Withdrawal of General Critical of Islam
The Blaze ^ | January 30, 2012 | Tiffany Gabby

Posted on 02/01/2012 3:10:37 PM PST by opentalk

A retired U.S. lieutenant general who made comments some consider disparaging to Islam withdrew Monday from speaking at a West Point prayer breakfast after a progressive veterans’ advocacy group — VoteVets.org — along with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked the Army chief of staff to rescind the invitation.

Last week The Blaze reported VoteVets.org told Gen. Raymond Odierno in a letter that allowing retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin to speak at West Point next week would be anathema to Army values and disrespectful to Muslim cadets.

According to the Associate Press, late Monday afternoon, West Point issued a statement saying Boykin had decided to withdraw speaking at the Feb. 8 event and that another speaker would take his place.,p>

For its part, CAIR is celebrating the outcome.

“We welcome Mr. Boykin’s withdrawal from this event and hope that the speaker who replaces him will offer cadets a spiritual message that promotes tolerance and mutual understanding,” CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a press release.

Awad added that CAIR has been challenging Boykin’s “un-American bigotry” for a number of years.

Again political correctness is taking a back seat to free speech. Of course this mainly occurs if radicals threaten violence - usually radical Muslims! This of course makes their actions inconsistent with our Constitution.

If this keeps up, it might be time for radical Christians to revolt just to even things up a bit and awaken those that believe in our freedoms. Too bad that we don’t have such a group - must be our belief system.

Wasn't Major Hasan a distinguished Muslim and Army Officer? (Is still being paid the salary of an Army Major?)

So some retired Army General dares speak of the dangers inherent in coddling Muslims and our "Leadership" condemns HIM, the General? Neo-nazis are a social/religious group as well, but they have less freedom than Islamo-fascists in our military. Wow...

Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin is on GBTV tonight.

the discussion includes.. our government has Muslim Brotherhood documents and their blueprint to dismantle America.

Plan: Destroy them from within by their hands.

CAIR has a big influence on media, the Muslim Brotherhood is in our government.

An example is our government calling Fort Hood Massacre 'Workplace Violence

Obama puts Islam first.

America should take notice that somebody’s rights have been infringed upon whenever CAIR applauds.

The hero General Boykin may be offensive to “Army values” and muzzie cadets. OMG.

Here’s a little ditty I made up, entitled “No muslims at all”, in support of deporting all muslims from America:

(Sing to the tune of “Home on the Range”)

Oh give me a home where the muslims don’t roam,
And the Christians and Jews have free rein.
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And we can be free once again!

No muslims at all!
No hijabs, no mosques and no CAiR.
Where the suicide bombs don’t threaten our homes,
And freedom breaks out everywhere!

Beck has covered how CAIR (and media) is also bullying Muslims who do not want Sharia law in US ..how witnesses were treated at Peter King's hearing about Muslim radicalization of Americans, was an example. They were trying to sound the alarm also.

So the Eisenhower idea of having a Prayer Breakfast has been hijacked, if I was one of the other invited guests...I would leave Mr. Obama with all of his Muslim cronies. Eisenhower would NOT be happy.

When CAIR decides who gets to speak at West Point, it is time to bring our troops home. We need them here.

Beck just covered how the Fort Hood shooter gave a 50-slide introduction to Islam presentation to the DOD that stated his alliance was not to the constitution or America, prior to his jihad. No one did anything in the DOD.

If you upset CAIR then you’re on the right course.

I was glued to GBTV during the entire two hours. I recall that we saw the “SOA” (Soldier of Allah) story on Hassan’s business card here on FR after the jihadist massacre at Ft. Hood.

NEVER AGAIN.

Question: "...allowing retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin to speak at West Point next week would be anathema to Army values and disrespectful to Muslim cadets." WTF?

“We welcome Mr. Boykin’s withdrawal from this event ...

"Mr. Boykin"? Historians still refer to General Benedict Arnold and you pipsqueaks refer to General Boykin as "Mr"! Pardon me while I fart in your general direction. My opinion of C.A.I.R. could walk under a snake in a top-hat. If they weren't funded by Islamic oil money they would be working from a closet in somebody's basement.

Our administration it the problem.. as the Beck program discussed tonight. Dismantling of USA is from the inside.

Federal Judge Agrees: CAIR Tied to Hamas

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been connected to the terrorist organization Hamas, a federal judge said in a July 2009 ruling unsealed last week. "The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling.

CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) had protested to Solis that they were incorrectly named as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2008 trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.

Among the allegations, HLF was accused of having provided more than $12 million to Hamas. After a 2007 mistrial, five former HLF officials convicted on 108 counts, ranging from money laundering to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

C.A.I.R. is the biggest enemy of free speech that the United States has ever known. C.A.I.R. is using threats across America to get programs and voices silenced if C.A.I.R. even suspects that someone might say a negative word about Islamic Jihad’s intent to make every one of us a vassal of Islam.

C.A.I.R. is using threats across America - - - .’

C.A.I.R. and all the rest should never have been given credibility by this country.
