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.

[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.

What I love is how certain people have their site linked up with a book supportive of terrorism now. Something about how the suicide planes of 9-11, led 9-11 victims and the govt. to want to commit suicide as well. Uh huh....

I guess that CAIR is really feeling the heat Janice. And plus they need something to do before Christmas comes and they jump on the "let's get rid of Christmas" bandwagon.
