San Diego City Council honors Hamas-linked CAIR with special day of appreciation
By Robert Spencer - Jihad Watch
This is more of the idiocy that results from believing that “Islamophobia” is more of a threat than jihad terror. Find out just how corrosive and dangerous this false view is in my new book Confessions of an Islamophobe — preorder your copy here.
CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.)
CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. A CAIR operative recently called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
Jihad Watch reader Roger sends in this video and the information below. Please contact the mayor and City Council members, and politely and courteously let them know that you think it was unwise of them to honor a Hamas-linked group that has consistently opposed counterterror efforts and smeared those who call attention to the jihad threat.
