This prank and CAIRs reaction to it is starting to remind me of a child's temper tantrum. CAIR was joined by "other" muslim activist groups calling on Pace University to crack down on hate crimes after a second copy of the koran was found in a toilet at its campus. The whine-o-gram goes on to state,
"This incident meets the legal definition of a hate crime, "said Aliya Latif, a member of the Association of Muslim American Lawyers. "Indeed, this is no different from placing a burning cross in front of a house or painting a swastika on a locker."
The discovery of the islamic "holy book" in a toilet at Pace's lower Manhattan campus on October 13 was the latest in a series of acts of vandalism tinged with racial or religious overtones at the school. In addition to the korans found in a library toilet on September 21, and in October someone scrawled "racial slurs" (to which CAIR doesn't elaborate) on a student's car at the Westchester County satellite campus and on a bathroom wall. These are the incidents CAIR and AMAL refer to regarding the escalating incidents of "hate" at the university.
This laughable and much ado about nothing. CAIR never attended my high school let alone enter the restrooms. I think American muslims would be better served if CAIR would allow them to thinken their skin, insist on assimilation into American culture and once you leave your homes or mosque become immersed in Americanism.
