Posted on 09/28/2013 12:16:30 PM PDT by jazusamo
This past summer, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) changed its corporate name to Washington Trust Foundation, Inc. (WTF). Last week CAIR/WTFreleased, under the CAIR moniker, "Legislating Fear -- Islamophobia and its Impact in the Unites States." Originally scheduled for release on the day of the Navy Yard shooting massacre, CAIR presumably elected to delay release of the report until they were reasonably certain Jihad played no role in this latest example of workplace violence at an American military facility.
Does CAIR seek to suppress the free speech of any group with which it disagrees? Why does CAIR label speech it disagrees with as "Islamophobic"?
One could literally write a book critiquing the intellectual shortcomings of the 148-page report. Certainly not written at the reading level of "The 9/11 Commission Report," it reads more along the lines of a 7th Grade English paper derived from the Cliff Notes version of a Dr. Seuss book.
To frame their thesis, CAIR lumps a number of individuals and organizations into an "American Islamophobia network." Sounds ominous, doesn't it? (Full Disclosure: this writer has met and/or written about at least five members of this "network".)
Included in this network is (purported) Pastor Terry Jones (p. 27), he who has a pyromaniacal fixation with the Koran that the mainstream media is always eager to highlight. Also in this report is the Westboro Baptist Church (p. 133), the folks who protest at funerals of fallen soldiers to advance their twisted anti-gay agenda. Jones and Westboro are religious fanatics occupying a point so far right on the political spectrum as to render them wholly irrelevant to the path this report attempts to travel. The uninformed reader, one unfamiliar with the core subject matter of this report, would see Jones and Westboro here and conclude...

Last Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear appeals from the Holy Land Five: five former officials of what was once the largest Islamic charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), who were convicted of funneling millions in charitable donations to the jihad terror group Hamas. That effectively ends the story of the Holy Land Foundation, but since many of its co-conspirators are still active, notably the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the case is worth revisiting.
ISNA and NAIT were among the groups listed as "members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood." During the trial, the government introduced evidence "expressly linking ISNA and NAIT to the HLF and its principals; the Islamic Association for Palestine and its principals; the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and its Palestine Committee, headed by Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzook; and the greater Hamas-affiliated conspiracy described in the Government's case-in-chief." The Islamic Association for Palestine, since shut down as a Hamas front, is CAIR's parent organization.

I find THAT most Curious Indeed!
You know the answer to your question.
Phobias are irrational fears, there is nothing about fearing islamics that is irrational.
why do we allow subversive enemy agents in our country (more or less, why do we allow them to buy off our government officials)???
there’s something very, very wrong with this picture...
We’ll likely never know, at least with the current CinC and his affinity for the term “workplace violence” for massacres on out military bases.
Excellent question and I’ll add why are they still operating after what they’ve been found to be doing.
It has to go the fact that 0bama is president and his AG is Holder, IMO.
the web of islamic madness is seemingly INFINITE....
we can only “guess” and Im betting that many will guess this to have been a part of a very twisted long term plan....
Is ‘Hamas-CAIR’ something like Obama-Care?
