CAIR's double standards

Reader comment on item: CAIR: 'Moderate' friends of terror

Submitted by Jacob, the Copt (United States), Jun 6, 2002 at 08:55

CAIR is barking day and night about the so called "Persecution of Muslims in the USA" in the Arabic media and describe America's war on terrorism as "The US war againts what it calls terrorism".

Yet those racists in CAIR deny any rights for the non-Muslims in Islamic sountries.

On March 29th. 2000 the US Coptic community (Egyptian Christians) rallied in front of the White House to put some pressure on the Egyptian government to promote equality for non-Muslims in Egypt. Of course this has upset CAIR, so Nihad Awad (their Arabic Spokesman) went on the Egyptian TV to describe the protesters as traitors to their country Egypt.!!!! Asking for equality and justice in Islamic countries is a grave crime in CAIR's eyes. Such an organization should be exposed to the media and the US media should stop giving them time to air their venom. CAIR is a wolf in a sheep's clothing.
