Shut down CAIR

Reader comment on item: Radical Islam's Hypocrisy

Submitted by Caesar (United States), Jan 18, 2005 at 10:42

America is a land of opportunities for everybody. This is possible thanks to its form of government founded in unversal principles like: justice for all, equality, peace, and freedom.

Unfortunately, organizations like CAIR are, in a very subtle and Machiavelian way, use our democratic institutions and laws in detriment of American citizens' basic freedoms. This group of political activists think that our society is so corrupt that the solution is to make America a Muslim nation. In other words, CAIR thinks that freedom of press, religion, and speech is not important (except to advance its goals) but a totalitarian, bigoted, intolerant, and medieval religion of the seventh century called fundamentalist Islam should be established in American government.

The problem is even worse when our law enforcement agencies, based on ignorance about the true nature of fundamentalist Islam and the already political correctness thought of our government, give a pass to Islam for fear of being labeled "Islamophobic" and intolerant. The truth is that CAIR, and other groups, must be shut down and prosecuted for its anti-America agenda and support of terrorist groups.
