Skip to comments.Obama’s ‘Outreach to Muslims’ Prompts Mass Koran Distribution
Posted on 06/30/2009 7:19:32 AM PDT by ncfool
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), whose officials in the past have been convicted for being associated with Muslim terrorist groups, said it will announce at a news conference Tuesday that it is launching an education campaign and will distribute 100,000 copies of the Koran to local, state and national leaders. The books will provide an English translation and commentary.
CAIR said the distribution is prompted by U.S. President Barack Obamas recent speech in Cairo, in which he said he wants to reach out to Muslims throughout the world. He praised the Muslim community in the U.S, whose values he said incorporate tenets of Islam. President Obama, whose father was a Muslim, quoted the Koran four times in his speech in Cairo and used the word violence instead of terror in his reference to extremists.
"Through this ground-breaking outreach initiative, we hope not only to educate policy-makers and opinion leaders about Islam, but also to provide an opportunity for American Muslims to reach out to their fellow citizens of other faiths," said CAIR board chairman, North Carolina State Senator Larry Shaw.
However, the New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has charged that CAIR is a product of the Islamic Association for Palestine, and other media have accused it of promoting militant Muslim views.
CAIR previously has been funded in part by the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, some of whose former officials recently were convicted for funneling money to terrorist groups.

When will our President come back to his Islam roots.
If I get one, I’ll flush it down the toilet.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
With key verses redacted or distorted.
Get them and burn them! Light up the countryside with bon fires!
A massive book burning party should do the trick.
Cool... Free toilet paper.
Can be used as toilet paper.
Who is paying for this?
Will they cut your head off if you throw it away?
Hey, let’s do that with Bibles! Oh wait, that would be wrong. Okay, how about American flags? Uh, wait, maybe they’re offensive now. What to do...
I’ll take one. After my dog relieves herself on it, I’ll drop some lard on it and burn it.
Filthy no good muslim scum. (I’m holding back, I know).
There should be a Koran in every toilet.
I attended the ALA (American Library Association) exhibit hall several years ago and they were handing out Korans for free there.
That leaves enough books to clog every toilet in downtown DC.
Ha, our "leaders" can't even read the bills they sign, let them waste their money passing them out.
CAIR possibly with funding from ACORN
They make it easy to keep your toilet paper neatly organized, easy to carry and easy to use.
Just rip out however many sheets you need, close the cover and the remainder stay nice and flat and unwrinkled.
Why the F*** are they being urged to push their bastard religion on us, if this were someone handing out Bibles they’d go out of their minds!
