CAIR responds to the attack on Seattle Jewish Center

I no sooner posted the news of the attack (by an American muslim) on a Seattle Jewish center, did CAIR email a statement condemning the attack. Like I predicted, the whine-o-gram was a dialog of the demented. Below is the communique I received;

"We condemn this senseless attack on a religious institution and offer sincere condolences to the loved ones of those killed or injured. The American Muslim and Jewish communities must do whatever is within their power to prevent the current conflict in the Middle East from being transplanted to this country. We also urge local, state and national law enforcement authorities to step up security measures at synagogues, mosques and other religious institutions of both faiths."

The following is a statement from the Seattle muslim community;

The Muslim community of Greater Seattle area watched in horror as news broke of a shooting at the Jewish Federation building. While many of the details of this shooting remain to be determined, what is clear is that a senseless and ruthless act of violence has taken place and resulted in the loss of at least one life.

We categorically condemn this and any similar acts of violence. We pray for the safety and health of those injured and offer our heartfelt condolences to the family of the victims of this attack. We also hope that the perpetrator of this crime is brought to justice.

There is no room for such acts of violence in our city and community. When one of us is attacked, none of us are safe. We refuse to see the violence in the Middle East spill over to our cities and neighborhoods.

We reject and categorically condemn any attacks against the Jewish community and stand in solidarity with the Jewish Federation in this tragedy.

Do you think it sounds sincere? No outcry demanding an investigation by federal authorities because this is "clearly a hate crime". We'll see if they pursue this with the same zeal as they hounded the MSU professor.

I think CAIR was "sincere" in its efforts to cover its butt.
Their numbers and the political climate are not yet conducive to their plot. So the act of this nut probably does annoy them. But to believe that they actually have sympathy for these Jews and their families? No way.

So true Chris,

As details unfold, I learned this guy truely was a "nut". I understand he was bi-polar. And lucky for CAIR, friends say he did not attend mosque on Friday and thought islam had trouble being "secular".
Ya think!

CAIR will come out and say we (infidels) need more education and need to develop a "dialog" to better understanding (islam). This "nut" did not represent islam. He was a disturbed individual who wasn't a muslim. Yadda, yadda, yadda!

Like you said, CAIR will rationalize this attack due to his "mental illness" and down play the islamic angle.
The facts are, CAIR and all other muslims own maps without Israel on them. That's all you need to know.
