How can this be?

Reader comment on item: CAIR: Islamists Fooling the Establishment

Submitted by William East (United States), Jun 24, 2012 at 22:24

I just don't get it. This is an organization that seeks to supplant our tolerant coexistence of ideologies with a system of law the degrades women, that would subjugate non-muslims, a system that allows moderate peanalties for murdering non-muslims , that does not allow for freedom of choice in art and music and dance, a system that executes anyone who turns away from Islam, a religion that plainly declares the magnificent Jewish people to be descendants of apes and pigs, that practices every kind of deceit and evil, and yet this organization is lauded in government and corporations. The list goes on ad infinitum, ad nauseum. How did we come to this?

Surely CAIR can be taken to task in a court of law in a way that challenges the fact that Muslims can kill anyone who turns away from being a Muslim. The fact that killing a shirk (?) is a stated mandate in the Koran disqualifies Islam as a religion but illuminates the Koran as a manifesto. As a manifesto it has no place for those who defend freedom.
