CAIR's apparent strength an illusion

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Assault on Paul Harvey

Submitted by Ronald Proby (Canada), Dec 24, 2003 at 10:00

CAIR's success in muzzling Paul Harvey by pressuring GE and other sponsors only succeeded because of a public, pro Saudi momentum created 60 years ago by the Whitehouse and sustained to this day by carreerists and retirees from the State Dept. and CIA. The arabist bias in these sections of the US government is well documented and undeniable. However, it is not well known outside non government circles who obtain their news uncensored from internet sites.

Nothing less than a second disaster equal in scale to that of 9/11 will likely change this sad, pathetic state of affairs. No change can be expected until congress actually passes a law forbidding present and past US Gov. employees from accepting 'consulting' or research contracts and other bribes disguised as jobs from the Saudi government, with equaly clear limitations being placed on US universties who accept grants and other donations from Saudi sources.

It is only this articficial, official support that encourages weak- kneed corporations to cave in to CAIR's rubber reasoning. THe average american's contempt for most issues raised by groups such as CAIR is near unananimous. Big Media and the Whitehouse cannot ignore much longer the cleavage between public and private opinion on Arab Muslim issues. In fact, it is widely ignored that the majority of Arabs with US citizenship are christian. In number real muslim Arab Amercian voters fall far below the level of what could be called a serious minority voting block.

Although only one among a dozen administrations to do so, the Bush' government's failure to address this 60 year old swamp of hypocracy and self delusion as to the real and destructive intentions of the Saudi royal family could easily become a winning issue for the Democrats next year. The fact that the subject remains just as untouchable for the DNC speaks volumes about how deeply rooted and unconditional support for the duplicitous and genocidal Saudi government really is.
