CAIR's vision is to be a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding.
CAIR's mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding. (Vision and Mission: Council on American-Islamic Relations)
Now doesn’t this sound awesome? The CAIR vision reads like a very tolerant American thinking organization whose central concern is sticking up for the civil rights of Muslim-Americans.
Unfortunately it is propaganda validating the wishful thinking of decent Muslims who actually believe that Islam means peace. Also the CAIR vision reads as something very American to American non-Muslims (kafir) who believe in the American principles of Freedom of Religion and social justice.
The reality is CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator with those of convicted in the Holy Land Foundation trial for laundering charitable donations into the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas. So much for the concept of “justice and mutual understanding.”
Now let’s look at Islam’s practice of tolerance, civil liberties and building coalitions that promote justice of mutual understanding.
Muslims constantly attack Christians in Bangladesh and force the sale of their property and humiliate them.
Seventeen year old Rifqa Bary fled her Muslim parents fearing they would kill her for converting to Christianity. Her fears have not been substantiated by law enforcement; however there are several cases of honor killing in America and the West for less egregious acts of offending Islam or Islamic family honor. Since Rifqa has fled to Florida she has received death threats from Muslims other than her family Muslim apostasy.
Muslim Turkish father murders his son when he finds out the young man is a homosexual. If you read my blogs you are aware I believe homosexuality is a deviant sin; however I would never advocate death or harm to a homosexual. I would advocate my right as a business owner not to be forced to hire a person whose lifestyle I find to be repugnant.
There is no freedom of speech or the open freedom of religion in Muslim dominated nations and in the West many conclaves of Muslims have successfully instituted Sharia Law which denies civil rights to human beings.
Read the theme of apostasy for Muslims found in the holy writings including the Quran.
Mutual Understanding in Islam
Here is a mere small list of people who live under a death threat for their advocacy in making people aware of the negative aspects of Islam. Here is another essay demonstrating the lack of Mutual Understanding within Islam.
I could probably fill ten pages of examples of Intolerance, the non-existence of Civil Rights and the total absence of Mutual Understanding AND still not come close to exposing Islam’s negative aspects as compared to Western and (especially) American principles of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
CAIR is so hypocritical in its alleged status of moderate Islam and defender of Muslim Civil Rights. CAIR has not only been connected to Hamas legally through the HLF convictions but the organization’s founders and many of its current leadership have espoused the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is definitely not a representative of moderate Islam. Nearly all the transnational terrorist organizations of the Sunni Islam persuasion are of the Hanbali Islamic school of thought. The Hanbali school is conservative and interprets the Quran, Hadith, Sunna and so on in literal terms and consider the most extreme violence of Mohammed’s Islamic conquests and retribution as examples to be followed in the in the present time.
Muslim Brotherhood, Salafist, Wahhabi and related groups thus are Islamic reform movements seeking to enforce the return of purest Islam of the Prophet Mohammed’s day in the seventh century AD (C.E. for secular humanists).
CAIR is a part of this very non-moderate Islamic tradition regardless of CAIR allusions to the contrary.
An article by Joe Kaufman at Pajamas Media is the inspiration of my writing actually the briefest of facts about CAIR. You should probably check out the Anti-CAIR website that delves into CAIR constantly; however read Kaufman’s article about Hussam Ayloush. Ayloush is the leader of CAIR-Southern California. Evidently Ayloush sticks to the national CAIR line of being a moderate Muslim criticizing the FBI. The FBI criticism is because the Bureau wisely has cut off official team work with CAIR because of its unindicted co-conspirator connections to the HLF convicts directly sending money to Hamas.
