CAIR's half-truths and lies

Reader comment on item: CAIR: 'Moderate' friends of terror

Submitted by Skans (United States), Jul 21, 2006 at 15:14

From CAIR's website:

"More dangerously, the current Israeli government under Ehud Olmert, a shadow of Sharon who is trying to build an image among his people and in the Middle East as a tough military leader, is pursuing a strategy of total security that could lead to an open multi-national war in the Middle East."

"Israel, the only nuclear power in the Middle East and the owner of the most powerful conventional military in the region, has launched an all-out war on two peoples in response to the kidnapping of a handful of its own soldiers. Israel itself holds thousands of innocent Palestinian and Lebanese people, men women and children who have been in Israeli jails for many years."

_____________________________________________

This article ignores the fact that Israel was attacked without provocation; both by Hamas, that controls the Gaza Government and Hezbolla that is a significant part of the Lebanese government. Thus, Israel was attacked by two foreign nations, which were absolutely and undeniably acts of war. CAIR neglects to mention the Israeli soldiers that were not kidnapped, but murdered inside of Israel by Lebanese militants that control a substantial portion of the Lebanese government. CAIR only mentions the two that were kidnapped. CAIR mentions nothing of the multitude of rocketes launched by Hezbolla into Israel at no military target whatsoever, some of which murdered Israeli Muslims.

CAIR doesn't seem to care that murder is being committed world-wide by Musims in the name of Islam upon innocent people; not as part of any defense; but pure 100% cold-blooded, calculated murder.

If I were a Muslim, and a member of CAIR, the message that I would be sending to the world would be the following: "The Israelies are right to defend their nation against the murderers who unfortunately control Lebanon and Gaza; we support the Israelies in their endeavor and pray for their swift success."

CAIR obviously suffers from the same problem that many Muslims suffer - a total lack of understanding of right from wrong.
