CAIR Repudiates Praise for Fort Hood Shooter(The Council on American-Islamic Relations)
PRNewswire-USNewswire ^ | Nov. 9, 2009 | CAIR

Posted on 11/09/2009 2:10:27 PM PST by mdittmar

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today repudiated online remarks by a former Virginia imam praising Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who allegedly killed 13 people and wounded 29 others in a shooting spree last week at Fort Hood in Texas.

The posting on the web site of Anwar al-Awlaki called Hasan a "hero" and said American Muslim groups, like CAIR, that condemned the Fort Hood attack are "hypocrites" and traitors to Islam.

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:

"As American Muslims said with one voice when this cowardly attack first occurred, no ideology could ever justify or excuse such violence. To call the alleged killer a 'hero' makes a mockery of every Islamic principle of justice. The twisted and misguided views in Anwar al-Awlaki's posting are not those of American Muslims and do not reflect mainstream Islamic beliefs or sentiments."

Immediately following the attack at Fort Hood, CAIR issued a strong condemnation of the deadly shootings and urged the nation to remain calm and unified.

CAIR’s leadership may not support it, but CAIR’s membership does.

NO. Thsi is typical Islamic deception. Lying to infidels is allowed and encouraged. CAIR, the teleprompter, Hasan, etc are all part of the Muslim Brotherhood which is financially backed by the Saudis.

CAIR is right for once. I hope they continue to stand up against terrorism, and I hope it is not just empty words.

They need to be. Silence implies approval; and it's hard to play a victim when you give implied conscent.

This is all deception and people fall for it. CAIR is part of the Muslim Brotherhood which is financed by the Saudis. MB’s job one is exporting Islam to the west for takeover.

People need to wake up.

Wow - it only took them four days to say anything.

How long did it take them to back up the “flying Imams”?

In the past 8 years and 2 months, this is the firt time that I can recall that cair put out an unequivocating denunciation of an islamic terror attack. It is the right thing to say but I can’t help thinking that they sense an ugly mood about the country and they know they are no where near ready for the final battle, hence they pour the tequilla (I know it’s not spelled like that just being silly) and buy some more time.

Muslim leadership talking from both sides of the mouth. In other words, in public condemm the actions, in private praise the actions.

Wouldn't you just love to be a fly on the wall during a CAIR closed-door meeting or a mosque service?

Betcha what you'd hear wouldn't square with CAIR's public pronouncements.

"CAIR’s leadership may not support it, but CAIR’s membership does." CAIR is just doing a head-fake, like Obama does whenever he talks about health care reform.

I don’t see where they say that Anwar al-Awlaki is not a muslim. We are told repeatedly by CAIR that the terrorists are NOT muslim because they do not follow true Islam.

The CAIRful statement remarks that this is not part of MAINSTREAM Islam, but why would this Imam’s views be “outside” of the “mainstream” but still under the umbrella of Islam?

I agree. It’s their propaganda machine. CAIR is not a pro-America organization. They’re here to try to get concessions for interjection of Sha’ria law.

“CAIR is right for once. I hope they continue to stand up against terrorism, and I hope it is not just empty words.”

Are you being sarcastic, or do you really think that CAIR “stands up against terrorism”?

It is real easy to throw Maj. Hassan under the bus after the fact.

The leftists will protect them...and probably advised them they need to make the statement....

The war is upon us.... Every Freeper needs to read this book:

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left (Paperback)

*************************************EXCERPTS*******************************

Review

An original look at those who want us to fail in the Middle East, both at home and abroad. The -- Davis Hanson, Author, Ripples of Battle

***********************************snip******************************

By Kat Bakhu (Albuquerque, NM United States) - See all my reviews

I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.
