CAIR: "Cal Thomas Echoes Nazi Propaganda" (instructs followers to disseminate reply to column)
CAIR Email (Islam-Infonet List) ^ | 22 May 03 | CAIR

Posted on 05/23/2003 11:07:21 PM PDT by Stultis

Immediately following this introductory paragraph is the relevant portion of an email received (5/22/03) from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Their emails contain news clippings and links, commentary, press releases and/or "action items". This one had many news stories on other topics, but carried the subject line, "CAIR-NET: Cal Thomas Echoes Nazi Propaganda":

IMPORTANT NOTE: Syndicated columnist Cal Thomas recently published a commentary portraying Muslims as "enemies" within America's border and smearing any Islamic group that promotes political activism and participation. If you see this editorial in your local newspaper (his column is published in hundreds of papers), please submit the reply below on CAIR's behalf, or use the talking points to write your own response. Just go to the newspapers website and search for the editorial department, "feedback" or letters to the editor. Give CAIR's contact information to the newspaper. Please let us know which newspaper receive the response. E-mail:
cair@cair-net.org

CAL THOMAS ECHOES NAZI PROPAGANDA
WORD COUNT: 447

By Ibrahim Hooper

Cal Thomas' latest commentary would have been more at home in the Nazi-era publication Der Sturmer than in a respectable American newspaper.

Thomas, echoing 1930s Nazi propaganda against the Jewish community in Germany, warned of the "dangers" posed by increased Muslim political participation in North America. Thomas wrote: "You don't have to be paranoid to fear where this can lead in Canada and in the United States - where immigration and births are dramatically increasing the Muslim population…If politicians succumb to pressure from Muslim activist groups and equate Islam with the religious and political heritage of this country, we will know that an important beachhead has been attained by our enemies."

He also decried the fact that Muslims "are organizing voter-registration drives and political consciousness-raising events," as if these otherwise praiseworthy efforts are made nefarious solely by Islamic involvement.

This is the same conservative pundit who in a past column said Muslims "take their faith in a false god more seriously than we take our faith in the true one." He also called for the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians when he wrote: "Israel should declare its intention to transfer large numbers of its Palestinian residents to Arab nations...Eviction is a better avenue to stability."

Thomas not only attempts to disenfranchise American Muslims and label them as "enemies" of this country, he smears our organization by recycling a bogus quote falsely attributed to CAIR's board chairman saying Islam must dominate other faiths and that the Quran "should be the highest authority in America."

The alleged statement about Islam and the Quran, which is in contradiction to CAIR's nine-year history of mainstream civil rights and political advocacy, was not in fact a quote. It was a paraphrase of remarks that were either reported inaccurately or wrongly attributed by a reporter at a small California newspaper. CAIR is seeking a retraction from that newspaper.

Thomas also quotes Daniel Pipes as saying CAIR is on the "wrong side in the war on terrorism." Pipes is another right-wing Islamophobe who has repeatedly refused to condemn the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II and who warned of the "true dangers" posed by "the presence, and increased stature, and affluence, and enfranchisement of American Muslims." Birds of a feather…

If anyone wishes to learn what CAIR and the American Muslim community really stand for, they should visit the web site for our "Islam in America" ad campaign at www.americanmuslims.info. In those ads, ordinary American Muslims discuss their views on topics such as family values and ethnic diversity, and express their condemnation of religiously-motivated terrorism.

The United States is a multi-religious, multi-ethnic society. That is the American heritage Thomas seems determined to reject.

PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE
Chris Day, Times Picayune, 5/22/03
http://www.nola.com/news/t-p/letterstoeditor/index.ssf?/base/news-1/1053584394117470.xml

In this country, founded on the principles of religious freedom and separation of church and state, people of all faiths have the right to participate in politics. Yet Cal Thomas, in his May 20 column, decries the fact that "Muslims, by their own admission, are organizing voter-registration drives and political consciousness-raising events."

He refers to Muslims throughout his column as "our enemies."

Muslims are not our enemies. Terrorist groups that promote violence and hatred, some of which claim to operate under the banner of Islam, are our enemies. But they comprise a tiny percentage of Muslims worldwide.

Mr. Thomas criticizes specifically the political activities of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Looking up CAIR's web site for myself (www.cair-net.org), I see a peaceful, ecumenical organization. Check out their statement on the terrorist acts of Sept. 11: The group expresses grief for the victims and their families, praises the heroes of the rescue effort and states that "American Muslims unequivocally condemn these vicious and cowardly acts of terrorism."

In fact, Muslim friends of mine, some born here, others from such diverse countries as Senegal, Nigeria, Egypt and Lebanon, are among the kindest, fairest and most peace-loving people I know.

Mr. Thomas laments that we non-Muslims "fear being labeled bigots if we oppose Muslims' political activities. Clearly Mr. Thomas doesn't fear that label; he wears his bigotry on his sleeve.

Pipes is another right-wing Islamophobe

Taking a verse from the homosexual faction, if you disagree with them you are an Islamophobe? Do these people understand the language well enough to know that "phobe" comes from "phobia" - which is a fear? I don't "fear" Islam; I just think that the radical Islamists are a danger to America and our way of life!

Hey CAIR, if you put half as much energy into attacking the Muslim cesspools of Iran, Palestine, and Saudi Arabia, as you do attacking patriotic Americans, maybe your credibility would be worth more than Baghdad Bob.

BTW, this email nowhere gives a link to, or the text of, Cal Thomas' column. One can only conclude that Dougie wants the CAIR-bots to pass along his response (or follow his talking points) without necessary even reading what Thomas wrote.

Well, if anyone's familiar with Nazis and their policies, it's certainly the islamics. What is it with these people?

In WWI, they backed the wrong side. In WWII, they supported Hitler. In the first gulf war, they sided with Iraq (the "palis"), and again this time as well!

They danced in joy on September 11, and after suicide bombers murder innocent women and children, then get pissed off that the US isn't supporting their "cause" enough!

Although CAIR's response is depressingly typical of the Wahhabi Lobby, I actually do have some problems with Cal's column as well in that it lacks some important provisos and distinctions. So does your post. Let's set the record straight in fairness:

Well, if anyone's familiar with Nazis and their policies, it's certainly the islamics. What is it with these people?

In WWI, they backed the wrong side. In WWII, they supported Hitler.

This is not entirely correct. I'm certain that in WWII there were, among the Arabs, significant tribes and leaders that fought with the British. I'm not familiar with the history, but I'd bet the same was true in WWI. The Ottoman Empire was on the side of the Axis, but there were plenty of Arabs and Persian muslims who were against the Ottomans.

In the first gulf war, they sided with Iraq (the "palis"), and again this time as well!

Sure, the Pawnestinians did, but many Arab countries supported us, or even fought with us, in the Gulf War, and many supported us in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

They danced in joy on September 11, and after suicide bombers murder innocent women and children, then get pissed off that the US isn't supporting their "cause" enough!

Again, Palestinians did, but this is hardly all "islamics". Some of the largest demonstrations of solidarity with America anywhere in the world were held in Pakistan, where (IIRC) over 100,000 gathered, in spite of radicals who tried to throw grenades into their midst, and a quarter million (again, IIRC) in Iran, who gathered in spite of threats from the mullahtocracy who tried to forbid the demonstrations.

It's worth pointing out that a phobia is an *irrational* fear.

There's nothing irrational about being concerned with a religion that demands you submit to it's nasty Shari'a code of religious law, which would overthrow our current law, or face death.

I personally think Hoople is a dangerous nut and a danger to America. The Arab Islam Community should be checked out by our Government for citizenship papers and if not in order should be deported.
This group is playing on the goodness of Americans and Americas Free Societal rules to ensconce themselves by proclaiming themselves as victims which is an old ruse.
The appear to take their guide from the civil rights and homosexual demands and they moan and groan.
I'd like to see the Cair group turn in a few hundred Illegal Islamists and those who are enemies of America. that would be a good start.
Thanks for the post.

Taking a verse from the homosexual faction, if you disagree with them you are an Islamophobe?

No, only if you have a irrational fear of Muslims beyond the natural revulsion for those who commit and further terrorist attacks wrapped in religious fervor. Hatred or contempt for Islamics would be Islamisophia, as hatred for homosexuals, as distinct from a panicked fear of their presence, is homomisophia, rather than homophobia, the choice term for their supporting propagandists and fellow travellers.

Apart from a small plot of land in Rome, Islam is the only religion, or system calling itself a religion, that openly demands to govern politically and territorially as well.

It astounds me that mosques, special interest groups/PACs such as CAIR are not treated as agents of a foreign power...not religious movements or 'diversity' wannabes but active agents of a governmental system antithetical to our society and state.

We deport Cuban representatives for actions not in keeping with their status, why should we allow any of these agents (imams and their political front men) to remain on our soil?

The flip side, of course, is that an American born islamist were subject to treason charges it just might thin their ranks.

Muslims have the tight to question America's policy toward Israel, and Hamas might reasonably be described as "Arab zionism " But no zionist organization ever presented a threat to the United States as Hamas does, because it patches into the hysteria of Islamism.

I'm really sick of all these Nazi comparisons. Cal is a Nazi, Bush is Hitler, etc. Dennis Miller recently asked why the Saddams and the terrorists that kill tens or hundreds of thousands, why aren't they ever Hitler??

Cal Thomas is a patriotic American.

Ibrahim Hooper is a dangerous wacko!

Thomas, echoing 1930s Nazi propaganda against the Jewish community in Germany, warned of the "dangers" posed by increased Muslim political participation in North America.

Funny I thought it was Muslims echoing NAZI propaganda against the Jewish Community!

Bosnian Muslims had their own SS Division, the Hanjar Division.

Surah 48:29, "Muhammed is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbeleiver, yet merciful to one another". ...CASE CLOSED, Read the Koran and know that anyone who adhears to it is indeed your enemy. C.A.I.R. are liars, as Muhammed teaches all Muslims to lie to the Infidel. We must never trust any people who adhear to a religion that does'nt even beleive in the 10 Commadndments.

Thanks for the post. I didn't
read the artical, but I read the letters to the editor in the Detroit Free Press, and they hit all the points made in the E-Mail.

I guess some people can't think for themselves, they have to be told what to say.

Do you deny that CAIR and similar organizations, in defiance of the disestablishment clause of the Constitution, hope to install Sharia law here even though it has never worked anywhere in the world, and do not accept our concept of disestablishment of religion?

All of their name-calling, in which you now join, dissembles on this essential point. A religion which seeks to establish itself as dominant in government, directly assaults our founding principles. It is particularly obnoxious that a religion which has not made major positive contributions to the world for hundreds of years seeks this result.

Also, historically, it was the Arabs that played ball with Hitler and the great influence from Europe upon Islam in the years leading up to the Nazi state was the same German thought that led to the Nazis. This article is a piece of name-calling distortion and reflects an inability to think clearly and a willingness to distort truth that seems to be commonplace with people like Mr. Hooper, a well-known operative of the Wahhabi hatred lobby.

Your post deserves more than a megabarf alert, maybe a major puke alert. This is pure drivel from the "peaceful" religion that has sworn (100%) to kill anyone that doesn't become one of their religion. It's weird that you "forgot" to warn us that it is bs, pure and simple.

Seeking Islamic law: Muslim leaders openly declare their goal of introducing Islamic law once Denmark's Muslim population grows large enough - a not-that-remote prospect. If present trends persist, one sociologist estimates, every third inhabitant of Denmark in 40 years will be Muslim.

Interesting comment given that currently over 80% of the students in Dearborn MI public schools are MUSLIMS. Two years ago, it was 57%. 'nuff said?
