CAIR Has A Plan To Destroy The First Amendment

CAIRWhile the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) works relentlessly to get nations to criminalize speech that “denigrates” Islam, here in the U.S. some so-called “Muslim civil rights groups” are demanding the same thing

Faizan Syed at the  Missouri CAIR office has a plan to silence non-Muslims in America.

On their website, they are calling for a Social Media Task Force to monitor the Internet and counter the negative and anti Islam and Anti Muslim narratives instantly and in an efficient manner.

In order to do this CAIR is suggesting:

  • An association of Muslim Youth should be created  and trained in media monitoring and response and in media relations similar to methods used by Jewish organizations.
  • These Youth should be encouraged to be passionate, aggressive and prompt in their responses.
  • There needs to be  at least one such team in every country.
  • They should coordinate with other Muslim youth operating in different countries.
  • Report anti Islamic and anti Muslim content on the Internet to appropriate authorities to take action to remove it and go after those who post it online and prosecute and take actions according to the Shariah ruling.
  • Highlight the inconsistencies of the mainstream media and spread it across the web using social networking and all other platforms available to us.
  • Highlight the bias of media in reporting issues pertaining to Islam and Muslims.
  • Write to editors and journalist reporting on Islam and on Muslim issues.
  • Send mass emails out promptly urging Muslims to respond on news reports that is bias and anti Islamic in nature to the editors and journalist and TV anchors.
  • Promote books, documentaries, movies that is of beneficial to the Muslim youth.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) describes itself as a “non-profit, grassroots membership organization … established to promote a
positive image of Islam and Muslims in America,” to protect Muslims from hate  crimes and discrimination, and to present “an Islamic perspective on issues of importance to the American public.”

CAIR was co-founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad,  both of  whom had close ties to the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP),  which was established by senior Hamas operative Mousa Abu Marzook  and functioned as Hamas’ public relations and recruitment arm in the United States. Awad and
Ahmad previously had served, respectively, as IAP’s Public Relations Director and President.

It  was the main Islamic group to gain U.S. media access in the post-9/11  period, providing the “Muslim view” of the terrorist attacks and of America’s
response to them. As self-acclaimed Muslim spokesmen, CAIR officials typically refused to “simplify the situation” by blaming Osama bin Laden for the attacks on America.   Moreover, while they eventually were induced by journalists to condemn Palestinian suicide terror in a pro forma manner, they hedged their disavowals by describing it as an understandable response to Israeli brutality.

CAIR promotes a radical Islamic vision, as evidenced by the fact that its co-founder Omar Ahmad told a Fremont, California audience in July 1998: “Islam
isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.  The  Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted  religion on Earth.”

In a similar spirit, co-founder Ibrahim Hooper told a reporter in 1993: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.”  In 2003 Hooper stated that if Muslims ever become a majority in the United States, they will likely seek to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law, which they deem superior to man-made law.

IslamistWatch reports  that CAIR “uses Press TV, the biased English-language channel run by the Iranian government, as a platform to peddle its favored meme of “Islamophobia” in the U.S.”

According to Clare Lopez, a former CIA operations officer,  “Islam is not merely about diet/fasting, devotion, prayer, worship, pilgrimage, and proselytizing (Da’wa), which are completely 100% protected by the First  Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.   No, as CAIR  rightly points out, Islam  is also a complete way of life. . . which governs every aspect of a Muslim’s life and actually forbids a separation between faith and governance…. The reason the Muslim
Brotherhood and all other sharia-adherent Muslims cannot accept that sharia provisions that conflict with U.S. law be superseded by Constitutional law in American courts is precisely the notion that  Islamic law must dominate all other laws on earth in every respect…. [A]lthough sharia indeed contains legal prescriptions about devotion and worship as well as many other aspects of life, there are also multiple elements of  sharia that are utterly antithetical to the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence.”

Since 9/11, CAIR has become  the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and  infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main  decision making centers of the US government.
