CAIR quiet on al Zarahri quote

Yesterday Dinah Lord remarked on the lack of response from CAIR regarding Ayman al-Zawahri labeling president-elect Obama a “house negro”. And after I did a bit of searching I found that this idiom is very common for muslims. Once again Debbie Schlussel has the 411 on how the American ummah feel about using the word.

So back to the CAIR response. In all honesty I was waiting for the standard terrorist distancing whine-o-gram, seeing how the ummah overwhelmingly supported Obama. So imagine my surprise when the email announced “CAIR: Zawahri Does Not Speak for Muslims” and the only rebuff was a tired old link to the CAIR anti-terrorism page.

The Associated Press article link didn't even have a CAIR official quote. Then again, what could they say? How could they rebuff the good Egyptian doctor? He is after all a muslim brotherhood member in good standing.

Upon reading the translation, I was pleased to read most of the drivel was a recruitment tool for al qaida wannabes. The number 2 terrorist went on to discount the Obama victory saying; “America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always,".

Continuing on Ayman said the Obama plan to beef up troop levels in the Afghan theater would result in failure and the “dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them”.

Regarding the Obama photo-op at the Wailing/Western Wall during his world tour and his professed support for the State of Israel, the good doctor opined that "confirmed to the Ummah (Islamic world) that you have chosen a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims".

Now, it is my opinion that these three points are closely held by CAIR officials and the American ummah. The anti-war, anti-Israel and anti-American capitalistic way of governance is deemed contemptuous for many in the islamic community in America.

Perhaps that’s why CAIR attached that sorry anti-terrorism link without an original assertion denouncing the terrorist statement. You know, just for show, kind of an inside joke. We’re making an attempt to distance ourselves, but not really.
