Don't you know CAIR can follow different rules then the rest of us.

Reader comment on item: CAIR Instructs the Police about Islam

Submitted by Ted Norton (United States), Jun 1, 2010 at 22:37

Dear Editor, I think around 2002, George Bush used the word 'crusade' to describe the US campaign against terrorism. He was promptly reminded that crusade has a religious historical connotation and he should avoid using that word. Mr Bush never used that word again.

No one can apply such simple human decency to Islamists. No matter how ambiguously the word Jihad is used, no one can request Islamists to avoid using this word. For as long as it does not lead to violent killings of opponents, it has a benign meaning and as soon as it is used for violence, the users were not-Islamic any way. It is just like the good old terrorists who are muslims until they pull the trigger and cease to be good muslims as soon as they do. In CAIR's rules of games,, "heads I win tails you lose" is the fairest game.
