Welcome Aboard, Senator Boxer, You CAIR

For years, many of us have been warning about the true nature of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and that it is a terrorist-support organization and not a group dedicated only to defending the civil rights of America’s Muslims. As a minimum, CAIR has been unabashedly dedicated to the imposition of Sharia law in the United States and to pooh-poohing the idea that Muslims took part in 9/11.

Unfortunately, over the years, it has become clear that the reactions to disclosures about CAIR have often broken down along political fault lines – with conservatives generally accepting and understanding the true role of CAIR, and liberals maintaining that it is merely a misunderstood civil rights group. It is just this kind of head-in-the-sand thinking that motivated Judge Koeltl to sentence Lynne Stewart to a ridiculous period of 28 months for aiding and abetting the terrorist activities of the blind Sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman (who is serving a long sentence for plotting the 1993 Trade Towers bombing). The thinking is, if you say you are for protecting someone’s civil rights, you can’t possibly be a really bad person or group.

I am writing this today, the day after Christmas, because something has happened that might be a breakthrough in the general level of understanding of the nature of and the danger posed by CAIR. The following announcement was made last week:

“(Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate (AAH), a civil rights organization and terrorism watchdog group, appreciates the decision made by United States Senator Barbara Boxer to rescind the award her office had presented to the Executive Director of CAIR-Sacramento Basim Elkarra.

Both CAIR and Elkarra have exhibited the type of extremist behavior that is not worthy of awards or accolades. Former officials from CAIR are currently in prison, serving time for terrorist-related crimes involving Hamas and Al-Qaeda. In fact, CAIR can thank Mousa Abu Marzook, the second in command of Hamas today, for its very existence.

Unfortunately, too many in America's government, media and religious institutions have made CAIR out to be a legitimate group, rarely mentioning its numerous ties to terrorism. AAH and its subdivision CAIR Watch were created to expose CAIR and others like it for having these ties.” JihadWatch.com

If Senator Barbara Boxer, one of the most left-wing members of Congress, has reached this decision, there is hope for those of us who have been struggling for years to warn the American people that we are engaged in a war to save Western Civilization, whether we like it or not. That war is being lost in Europe and is being undermined here by well-meaning souls who seem to think that our President is a greater threat to our freedoms than those who routinely butcher women and homosexuals and anyone else who disagrees with them. They came within a year of gaining nuclear weapons in Iraq, and they seem to be getting close in Iran.

I like what you say but have a question. How will the formation of the N.A.U.-North American Union- affect our western culture and way of life? Maybe all this otherstuff is a distraction for the American people. While the real agenda is being conducted under the radar. Why is there no mention of the TTC or the meeting of the north american leaders and what was their real agenda? Quite honestly I don't trust any of our politicians. Being from the Boise, Id. area I have seen our local politicians, do things contrary to the will of the voters. We are being sold a bill of goods about this war on terror. Sure people are dying and the war is real, but maybe it's only a distraction.

I don't get your comment. this has nothing to do with the NAU which few people take seriously. Worry about a real and present conspiracy and not a remote one.

Russell: Your analyses about CAIR is right on the money. Thank you. If this Senator is concerned, the situation at CAIR has ti be dire.

I don't trust the people that make up this CAIR organization, and I never have trusted them. They've been on the O'Reilly Factor many times. Their only objective is to weaken our defense structure so that we can be more vulnerable to terrorist attacks. If anyone in this country sees them as an honorable group, they need to have their heads examined.
