True to form, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) -- also known as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding case in U.S. history, and a designated terrorist organization for nations allied to America -- is again protesting my forthcoming appearance to the U.S. Army War College, urging the latter to reconsider its decision and disinvite Ibrahim, since my presentation will no doubt be hypocritical, ahistorical and hateful. This, of course, is all déjà vu -- a repeat of events from eight months ago. As CAIR itself notes in it new press release, which came out on Feb. 21, 2020:
.Last summer, CAIR and its allies launched an online campaign highlighting Ibrahim's Islamophobic views and their negative impact.
Led by CAIR-Philadelphia and MPower Change, and supported by Community Responders Network, About Face, and Common Defense, the campaign drew more than 1800 signatures and received widespread support from its interfaith allies.
The referenced petition (see it here) was essentially a hysterical screed; it claimed that if I -- a racist and enabler of white nationalism, despite my Egyptian heritage -- am given a chance to speak before an already racist U.S. military, American servicemen would get so riled that they would start murdering Muslims (see near end of petition).
It is somewhat interesting now to learn that this CAIR/MPower petition received a mere 1,800 signatures -- despite its insistence that its followers sign it. By contrast, the much more reputable National Association of Scholars, which sent a petition in my support to the White House, received three times as many signatures (5,349), many from well-respected scholars and academics affiliated with numerous universities.
