Reader comment on item: CAIR's Hate Crimes Nonsense

Submitted by yonason (United States), May 19, 2005 at 18:06

You can tell a lot about people by looking at the company they keep. Here's an example of one of CAIR's 'friends' who's anti-American and antisemitic they occaisionally sponser.

"Neo Nazi William Baker Tells Muslim Crowd at Boca Marriott that 9-11 Hijackers Weren't
"Baker, a self-proclaimed Christian, travels throughout America and Canada making
speeches to mostly Muslim organizations, often in conjunction with the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and Muslim Students Associations on college

And, CAIR appears to be no stranger to involvement in terror, at least if a guilty verdict carries any weight any more.
"CAIR was named as a defendant in a 9/11 terrorism lawsuit and its Chicago branch, the
Islamic Association of Palestine, was ordered to pay a portion of $156 ml in damages to the
parents of David Boim, who was murdered by Hamas terrorists funded in part by the IAP.

Fortunately, not everyone is taken in by them.
"*Sen. Richard Durbin: "[CAIR is] unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with
groups that are suspect"
*Sen. Charles Schumer: "we know [CAIR] has ties to terrorism"

Sept. 2003 Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism,
Technology and Homeland Security

I share another poster's (W. Armenious) understandable puzzlement as to "how and why they [CAIR] still exist and which power is behind them forcing us to accept them!" I would just like to add that there is no excuse for the MSM to continue keeping Americans in the dark on this, and other issues vital to our well-being.
