Have you ever heard of the Council on American Islamic Relations?
According to their website:
“The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a grassroots civil rights and advocacy group. CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties organization, with regional offices nationwide. CAIR’s national headquarters are on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.
Since its establishment in 1994, CAIR has worked to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America. Through media relations, government relations, education and advocacy, CAIR puts forth an Islamic perspective to ensure the Muslim voice is represented. In offering this perspective, CAIR seeks to empower the American Muslim community and encourage their participation in political and social activism…
CAIR’s government affairs department conducts and organizes lobbying efforts on issues related to Islam and Muslims. The department monitors legislation and government activities and responds on behalf of the American Muslim community. CAIR representatives have testified before Congress and have sponsored a number of activities designed to bring Muslim concerns to Capitol Hill.”
Evidently, their lobbying efforts in Washington DC are quite successful as they are having a great deal of impact on the Obama administration, especially the White House and the Department of Homeland Security. Four years ago, they persuaded the FBI to stop using terms that were offensive to Muslims in their training material. The Obama administration ordered federal government employees to stop using terms like ‘Islamic extremism’ and ‘Islamic terrorists.’
Now the Department of Homeland Security is about to stop using normal Islamic terms, including ‘jihad’, ‘sharia’, ‘takfir’ and ‘umma.’ Jihad means ‘holy war’ which is what most Islamic extremist groups such as Hamas, Palestinian Liberation Organization, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haran, Taliban and ISIS, justify their violent actions are. Sharia is the strict legal code of conduct that governs many Muslims and justifies their beating, raping, burning and murdering of their women and girls. Takfir refers to the excommunication of a Muslim accused of unbelief. Umma refers to a community of Muslims. Additionally, they want to change ‘Muslim Americans’ to ‘American Muslims’ to make them seem more a part of the America we all love and hold dear that the Muslims are trying to destroy.
Why would our government move to ban the use of these Islamic terms? They claim that it is to avoid the ‘us versus them’ mentality when dealing with extremism. Supposedly these common terms are ‘religiously charged’ which makes it more difficult in the dealing with Islamic extremism and terrorism.
Let me share a little more about CAIR. Currently, CAIR National is in court, facing charges of fraud and racketeering. In a surprise ruling, at least to me, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit last week overturned a lower court’s dismissal of the case against CAIR, meaning the legal case against them will move ahead to trial.
CAIR also has strong ties to a number of Islamic extremist groups including HAMAS and the Muslim Brotherhood.
In early 2013, Austin, Texas was one of a number of places that took part in a nationwide event called Muslim Capitol Day in. One of the keynote speakers at the Austin event was Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth branch of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations). Carroll told the audience:
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”
Sound familiar? It’s right in line with the way our Muslim president conducts his affairs as he seems to feel that he is above the law. Carroll’s statement also echoes what CAIR’s Chairman Omar Ahmed said:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran…should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”
According to the FBI, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) both serve as front groups to help funnel money and information to the Islamic terrorist groups.
Not only does the FBI list them as having ties to terrorists, but the United Arab Emirates (UAE) recently listed both CAIR and MAS as being foreign terrorist groups. The UAE has outlawed both groups from operating in their country.
But none of this makes a difference to Barack HUSSEIN Obama. He recently met with leaders of CAIR and MAS and agreed to work together to fight the decision of the UAE in listing them as terrorist organizations. In 2009 our own FBI cut all ties with CAIR because they were not an appropriate group to be associated with.
So why is our government allowing themselves to be so influenced by an organization that the FBI and other nations have labeled as a terrorist groups or linked to terrorist groups? I personally believe that the answer lies with the fact the Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim who is hell bent on converting America to Islam. Note all of his anti-Christian laws and edicts, but when have you heard of any of Obama’s actions being anti-Islamic?
