House Republicans Don't Want Muslim Group Using Capitol Conference Room
Monday , March 12, 2007
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.

Rub it in their faces...everyday!
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.
Let them hold their conference at the DNC HQ.

because he's a f'n idiot. CAIR is a terrorist sponsored organization PERIOD.
How can the Democrats mix Allah and country? Allah. My bad.
Ya gotta give the dims one thing...They do support their allies.
The Democrats are definitely the most CAIRing party.
This is like letting The Bund meet at the Capitol.
What happened to separation of church and state?
Why is this religious group using a public property?
"It should be a concern to ordinary Republicans that the party is being viewed as a reservoir of anti-Muslim hate."
Actually, I'd say it's one of the few things left that we have to cling to with the party...
How about the NRA? The 2nd amendment is after all and actual enumerated right!
Pascrell was not happy with Virgil Goode.
Keep CAIR out of the Capitol!!!!!
CAIR's offices are two blocks away from the Capitol. They shouldn't be allowed THAT close.
Let them go to Iraq and hold the meeting there.
Amen! Are people really beginning to speak up now???? I sure as heck hope so.
If anyone locates an email address for Pascrell, please post it here.
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)
It really is a security breach.
It's an open door for a terrorist attack!!
Woo HOO! Good for us for telling the truth!
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.
And the deeper that reservoir gets, the better I like it.
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.
"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.)

But there may be hope for SC, although this is from 2004
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.
Holy Cr@p, they're right here in South Carolina!
Your information noted.
No, better yet - let them hold their conference at the DQ! Hahahahaha!
Simple answer, they are nor Christians.
No kidding! Up on I-75 around the south outskirts of Toledo, there's a GIANT mosque called the "Islamic Center" but more affectionately (ahem!) known to neighbors & passings motorists as the "Islamic Jihad Center."
Freeper longtermmemory nails it!
