House Republicans Don't Want Muslim Group Using Capitol Conference Room [CAIR.........]

House Republicans Don't Want Muslim Group Using Capitol Conference Room

Monday , March 12, 2007

AP

WASHINGTON — A House Republican leadership group said Monday that Democrats should retract an offer to let the nation's largest Islamic civil liberties organization use a Capitol conference room for a seminar.

The House Republican Conference referred to the Council on American-Islamic Relations as "terrorist apologists" and called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to cancel the forum scheduled for Tuesday.

"Democrats arrange official meeting with pro-Hamas, pro-Hezbollah group in U.S. Capitol," headlined a Conference press release carrying a Washington Times article on the planned meeting.

"It's really disappointing," said CAIR national communications director Ibrahim Hooper, that whenever there's an attack from elective officials "we don't even ask any more which party it is. It should be a concern to ordinary Republicans that the party is being viewed as a reservoir of anti-Muslim hate."

CAIR has 32 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada and says its mission is "to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding."

Tuesday's seminar takes up global attitudes on Islam-West relations. It's common practice for lawmakers to authorize use of rooms in the Capitol for advocacy group meetings. The CAIR meeting was arranged by Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., in a room used by the Ways and Means Committee. The Speaker's office said it has no direct say over the room's use. Pascrell did not have an immediate comment.

It's all for show anyway. I think Jerry Falwell and friends need to show up and demand equal access so we can see the hypocrisy when they're turned down.

Why is this religious group using a public property?

Actually, I'd say it's one of the few things left that we have to cling to with the party...

CAIR's offices are two blocks away from the Capitol. They shouldn't be allowed THAT close.

""It's really disappointing," said CAIR national communications director Ibrahim Hooper, that whenever there's a suicide attack from Middle Eastern types "we don't even ask any more which religion it is."

I'd like to know the parties involved who spoke out so that I could shoot a thank you note their way. They're right, of course. What greater proof could you want than this directly from CAIR's website? Yes, they coddle terrorists.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to contact Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to ask that he free Dr. Sami Al-Arian, a former Florida professor currently on a hunger strike in federal detention to protest his treatment by U.S. authorities.

Al-Arian is being held in a medical facility in North Carolina after initiating his water-only hunger strike on January 22. He began his protest after being given a sentence of up to 18 months for refusing to testify before a grand jury in Virginia. His physical condition is deteriorating daily. A family member told CAIR that he has lost 45 pounds since beginning his protest and now spends most of his time in a wheelchair.


Oh, they are sure to tell us that "Dr. Sami Al-Arian" was a professor. They make ZERO mention of the fact that he was taken in by the FBI for funding the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, is responsible for hundreds of terrorist acts in Israel, and has plead guilty.

This is pure territory marking.

If anyone has been to the Capitol they know it is not exactly a very large place. This is to play to the ilamic street that the takeover of the USA is well under way.

Next week Barney Frank will have a dating mixer in the same room. (now that mark foley is gone)

Well, they are holding the meetings there now, but they need more space. Queen Nancy needs all available room for her own personal use. Did you know she is the most powerful woman in the world? Just checking! Anyway, good for the Republicans hollering about this, and may they keep it up for a long time.

Hey .. that's a great idea.

I agree it's just for show .. the usual bowing and scraping and appeasement to our ENEMY!

ALL TERRORIST ATTACKS ARE DONE BY MUSLIMS - and we're supposed to be friends with them ..?? I don't think so.

Hats off the the Repubs with the guts to call the dems on this issue. If we can find out what "leadership" was involved, I'd be for sending them a few emails telling them to keep it up!! Don't allow the dems to sell America out.

Democrats claim they support our troops and then they allow a terrorist organisation to meet in the Capitol of the United States.

Let the Terrorists rent a meeting room at the Holiday Inn.

"It's easier to plan bombings, burnings and/or massive riots that way."

Have you ever noticed how many Islamic org. buildings are directly next to a metro?

Somebody needs to publically snatch Ibrahim Hooper's kufi cap off his fat head and use it for..well, never mind.

Anyway, if CAIR ever comes to South Carolina, they can hold their conference at Maurice Bessinger's Piggy Park BBQ in West Columbia.

(No joke, it's a great place to eat, for us Crusaders.)

If the 'Pubbies had shown this kind of starch for the last few years the 'Rats might not be in control of Congress today. Seriously, does anyone here recall our "leaders" previously calling the CAIR scum "terrorist apologists"? I sure don't.
