CAIR now "questions" FBI tactics in NY terror plot

Last week when CAIR came out with praise and support for the FBI, I subconsciously waited for the other shoe to drop. And drop it did. Yesterday's critical whine-o-gram says CAIR nowquestions FBI Tactics in NY Synagogue ‘Plot’New details of informant’s actions prompt Muslim group’s concerns”. Citing credible sources like the Huffington Post for leading the charge in defense of the ummah;islam not to blame for Bronx terror plot”. The same old tried mantra.

CAIR’s Chicago office executive director thug, Ahmed Rehab authored the Huffington article drivel. Like other articles, commentaries and op-ed’s by fellow CAIR minions, Rehab aims to educate the infidel populace by presenting the “facts” of the case. In his list of facts Rehab states these terrorists are too stupid to be considered al Qaeda material;hardly the breed of ruthless masterminds that the global terrorist networks like Al Qaeda tend to recruit and deploy”. We are led to believe that once again these poor men are victims of and were radicalized by an “agent provocateur” working for the United States government. Already working the entrapment angle, Rehab employs the greed card by including this statement by a long-time mosque member; "It's easy to influence someone with the dollar".

Masjid al-Ikhlas members and other RoP faithful all claim there was something suspicious about the informant and knew to stay away form him. If everyone knew this informant was bad news, why didn’t someone alert the authorities? Rehab gets the answer to that question from Imam Muhammad; "How do you go to the government about the government?"

There’s no mention as to what part the imam and mosque played in their radicalization or if their jailhouse conversion enhanced their anti-Americanism/anti-Semitism or did their anti-Americanism/anti-Semitism hastened their conversion. For now, the self-appointed American muslim mouthpiece would have us believe, these men are the true victims and islam is under attack once again.

look what I found!

As we were traveling south on interstate 71 I was able capture fellow blogger Bekah, proprietor of Bekah's Bits, on this billboard about 15 miles from the Kentucky border. I noticed it the last time we drove to Cincinnati and today I made sure I had my camera along to snap a picture.

This isn't the first time Bekah has been spotted advertising for Indiana Wesleyan, last summer Chris over at Malott's blog spotted this internet ad featuring the lovely Bekah.

**I think this is very cool and not meant to embarrass you, Bekah. Click image to enlarge.

CAIR Applauds FBI for Preventing Attacks on NY Jewish Sites

I laughed out loud when I read the headline from this early morning whine-o-gram. Does anyone really believe this praise is sincere? Me...not so much.

Of course the supportive nod from CAIR has a caveat.

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/21/2009) ­ The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today applauded efforts by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies that apparently thwarted an alleged plot to attack Jewish institutions in New York.

Four men were arrested Wednesday for allegedly plotting to bomb a synagogue and a Jewish community center. The men also allegedly planned to shoot down military planes.

“We applaud the FBI, the New York Police Department and the other law enforcement agencies that took part in the investigation for their efforts in helping to prevent any harm to either Jewish institutions or to our nation’s military.

"We repeat the American Muslim community’s repudiation of bias-motivated crimes and of anyone who would falsely claim religious justification for violent actions. Members of the American Muslim community should remain vigilant in reporting any activities that could harm the safety and security of our nation or its citizens.”

CAIR also requested that media outlets and public officials refrain from linking this case to mainstream Islam* and to challenge those who will inevitably exploit this disturbing incident to promote anti-Muslim fear and stereotypes.

*emphasis mine.

Along with innumerable condemnations of other terror incidents, CAIR has in the past launched an online anti-terror petition drive called “Not in the Name of Islam,” initiated a television public service announcement campaign of that same name and coordinated a “fatwa,” or Islamic religious ruling, against terrorism and religious extremism.

SEE: CAIR’s Anti-Terrorism Campaigns

[NOTE TO EDITORS: American Muslims are often accused of not speaking out forcefully against acts of terror committed in the name of Islam. This statement, along with the many other past anti-terror statements by mainstream Muslim groups, reaffirms the American Muslim community’s unequivocal condemnation of terrorism in all its

In addition to the lip-service, CAIR added links to past statements and “fatwa’s” in an attempt to promote their anti-terror facade.

How many times do we have to be told these barbarians are not true muslims, islam means peace and the ummah condemns fill-in-the-blank?

This mantra is getting old…fast.

When will we realize islam is the problem? Radical imams cultivate extremist views in mosques and by converting angry prison inmates. This is unique only to muslims and islam. If not, show me the Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu or atheist terror cells operating anywhere in the world.

I gotta brag....

I know I’ve been MIA for the last week. A lot going on and an increase in work hours have left me little time for blogger.

Nick and I attended commencement services at John Carroll University yesterday. Our niece graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree and Alpha Sigma Nu; The National Jesuit Honor Society member. She was also presented the Biology Leadership Award and is the vice president of the John Carroll chapter of Circle K, an organization focusing on community service and leadership.

How About That!
And she has a great sense of humor.

To say we were a proud group sitting amongst the few thousand people in the quad is an understatement. Though she’s not unique among her fellow graduates from this private institution, she is however exceptional. Especially to her proud family.

“Number 9”, the moniker I gave her after she graduated 9th in her class at Trinity High School in 2005, has enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Walsh University.

I’ll just let these last two pictures speak for themselves.

The extremely proud father…..

and mother......

CAIR target; Steven Emerson.....again

Once again we have CAIR on the attack (I know, you’re all surprised). The chosen target is no stranger to CAIR, enter Steven Emerson. In this CAIR Chicago article the “islamophobe and career hatemonger” is assaulted for an this Emerson IPT article published by the Hudson Institute. CAIR didn’t address, as is their hallmark, the assertions made by Emerson, rather CAIR engaged in character assassination.

The CAIR article (only published on their site as far as I could see) seems to “break down” Emerson’s assertions when in fact it’s smoke and mirrors. While seeming to “address” the claims CAIR takes the reader on this lengthy and turbulent ride, while not outright lying, devoid of many facts.

I’m not going to dissect the articles, I’ve read them both many times and can assure you CAIR hasn’t addressed the claims. Again, as is their MO, donning the cloak of victimhood and skirting around the issues leaving the (RoP faithful) readers sympathetic to their plight.

Emerson has been reporting on the islamic threat to the west, especially here in America, for almost 2 decades. The credibility CAIR claims Emerson is lacking is a self portrait. Steven Emerson has never been an “unindicted coconspirator”, the same cannot be said for the self-appointed American muslim mouthpiece.

Happy Mother's Day

I came across the following video produce by David Horowitz Freedom Center. It's extremely graphic and describes the abuse women have suffered at the hands of those faithful followers of the RoP.

I find it most disturbing that NOW, Code Pinko, even those "towers of moral clarity" at the UN turn a blind eye while such abuses continue unmolested (pun intended).

The islam-o-scumbags we're fighting abroad and in the west, have made their intentions clear. And those liberal independant "boobs" (pun intended) associated with the above organizations will be first in line if these terrorists had their way.

CAIR lackey, moon-bat reporter, questions Hasner

I just opened yesterday’s whine-o-gram and the CAIR assault on free speech continues. Representative Adam Hasner is no stranger to CAIR as I’ve highlighted here and here.

Now we have some twit reporter whose world view is one of tolerance, moral equivalence and, in my opinion, anti-Americanism. Francis’ article, Dear Rep. Adam Hasner, first compliments Hasner calling him an “eminent statesman”. With those pleasantries out of the way Francis then recounts the ummah victimhood mantra against Wilders.

Francis questions whether Hasner shares Wilders “anti-islamic” views and asks if he is indeed a “friend” as quoted by Wilders. Blah, blah, blah.

Reporter, Tom Francis, responds to commenter’s who question his first amendment beliefs; "And you question my belief in free speech? Because I've devoted my professional career to its cause?"

OK, I get it now. Only the views of the liberal ilk are worthy of being heard. Hey Francis, get down off your high horse before you’re the one falling down. If Francis is condemning Hasner for the company he’s keeping, I have this question; who are you in bed with?

Let’s face it; Francis is able to publish his beliefs/opinions sans repercussion. Reporters are free, in this great country, to spew their views in every rag nationwide. The industry has lost its way, no longer reporting the news with an unbiased eye.

What would happen if Francis’ reporting/views were suddenly deemed anti-islamic? How would he feel about his right to say what he believes? Free speech is quickly becoming an entity of the left.

What was Giggles thinkin'?

To live through the attack on the homeland and choosing to remain in New York City is surely a lesson in the perseverance of the human condition. Then our nation elects a man who can’t keep track of his plane? Personally, I think this was a deliberate act by Giggles.
Doug Hagmann, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, has some questions and some comments about the “secret mission”;
“According to the official reports of this incident, Louis E. Caldera, director of the White House Military Office, “approved” this “mission” the previous week and has now fallen on his sword, taking full responsibility for this ill-conceived plan. Also according to official reports, commander -in-chief Barack Hussein Obama apparently did not know about the plan in advance, and only learned of the fallout from this event Monday afternoon, more than a few hours after the event. Nonetheless, he too is reportedly angry over the angst caused by this “mission”.
” Although I do not doubt the sheer stupidity and narcissism of political hacks inside the beltway, the “official line” has as many gaping holes as the U.S.-Mexican border. Apparently, the majority of the media continue to be too entranced by their infatuation with their American idol of a president to see the absurdity of this story and contradictions concerning this event. As usual, no one in the media is asking pertinent questions, and they sure aren’t demanding answers. So, please allow me: Click here for his probing questions.

Once hysteria spread throughout Manhattan, Giggles claimed “It was a mistake as was stated. It was something we found out about it along with all of you, and it will not happen again.” WHAT? It’s like he’s a teenager promising to be home before curfew.

Watching Giggles, (and he was grinning from big ear to big ear) assure the American public “it will not happen again” does not lower my BP.

So, Giggles comes out and feigns outrage over this “mistake” then does a 180 and “explains” the reason for the lower Manhattan fly-over. Yeah, he wanted some pictures of his plane and Lady Liberty.

Like everything else in this open and honest administration, why the cover-up? And I’d like some answers….
