Obama's Cairo Speech Inspires Islamic Group to Give Qurans to US Leaders
June 30, 2009 6:02 PM
ABC News' Elizabeth Gorman reports:
Prompted by President Obama's speech directed to the Muslim world in Cairo in early June, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today launched its "Share the Quran" campaign distributing free Qurans to local, state, and national leaders across the United States.
The organization's spokesperson said it will also send a copy to Obama and Vice President Biden.
"This is pure educational. I want to make it clear that this is not proselytizing or a campaign or project to convert people to Islam," said CAIR's director Nihad Awad today at a press conference. "We want people to be aware and informed about Islam."
Awad said the idea to gift high-end Qurans ($78 each) to American legislators, law enforcement officers, media leaders, governors, local elected and public officials, was directly inspired by Obama's Cairo speech:
"We were astonished he quoted the Quran." Awad told ABC News. "We know it. But I think the majority of Americans have no idea that maybe these quotes are direct from the Quran, they're unequivocal, and they cover the issues of . . . values we need today, in order to work together, fight extremism and terrorism, and turn the page. And bring the relationship to its rightful position between the American and Muslim world."
The organization chose Muhammad Asad's (a European) English translation of the Quran, and asks Muslims to donate $48 to help subsidize its multi-million dollar project as part of a grassroots campaign.
"The long-term goal of the campaign is to put one million Qurans in the hands of ordinary Americans of all faiths over the next 10 years," according to a CAIR statement.

Well, they had to help support Obama’s claim that the USSA, formerly the USA, is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
I do too.
Maybe then more people will stop appeasing it's adherents.
From my hand...to the nearest toilet.
And is Hillary in talks with Muslim countries about sending a similar amount of Bibles?
Didn’t think so.
Oh definitely. We need to start pushing for a “Share the Bible” project. Purely educational you know. Seriously, I told a friend that as ignorant as the American people are about Christianity, we need to write a book titled “Christianity For Dummies” and distribute it specifically to the media folks and politicians.
If anyone is in doubt about that Barry Soetoro is a planted Muslim, he/she is out of their minds???
Or, rather a huge conspiracy in disguise of sweet talking like Jim Jones, NO question about it. Prayers for our grandchildren are needed!!!
The korans they distribute are the soft-sell versions that change arabic “kill the infidel” to English “persuade the infidel,” etc
Great. The more people read about the Religion of Pieces (of infidels), the better. Maybe they will understand this cult religion of death. Unfortunately, they will probably just put them on an end table to show how enlightened they are.
Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared," Kill any Jew who falls under your power."
Ibn Ishaq: 327 - Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.
الاسلام هو شر لا مثيل لها ، ويجب القضاء عليه
He can’t honestly believe Obama doesn’t already own a Koran.
Its ignoble verses make for great bumfodder..
bring the relationship to its rightful position between the American and Muslim world.”
That rightful position would be homing in on the twin towers at 450 mph.
Sorry, had enough of Islam.
Send me a case...we’re short of skeet at the range.....
Beautiful in its simplicity.
