Terror-Tied Islamic Group Puts Float in Veterans Day Parade
The U.S. front group for a UAE-designated Islamic terrorist group will have a float in one of the largest Veterans Day parades in the country.
Surrender in installments.
The subversive organization known as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, continues to try to burnish its unsavory image and obscure knowledge of its true nature.
Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR Oklahoma, insists that his organization is pure as the driven snow: “Any claim that CAIR is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, or any other terrorist organization is absolutely preposterous. CAIR was founded in 1994 in Washington, D.C., as a national organization to be a civil rights advocate for American Muslims, to stand up for constitutional rights, for religious freedom, for pluralism, and for every right that we value as American citizens.”
Soltani’s words are far from the truth. The reality is that “CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case – so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refusedtodenounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.”
According to a captured internal document entered into evidence in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, the Islamic Association of Palestine, which is the parent organization of Hamas-tied CAIR, was a Muslim Brotherhood entity, working toward “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house …” CAIR operatives attack and dismantle America’s greatest freedoms through litigation jihad. They smear and destroy the voices of freedom via their well-paid hacks in the media. Over the past decades, they have expended untold amounts of money to buy influence among media and elected officials.
A Muslim nation with ties to 9/11 (Qatar) made a major endowment to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The Saudis have funded them with at least $50 million. Post-9/11, they worked furiously to defeat the Patriot Act, and they continue to undermine counter-terror programs here at home.
Terror-tied CAIR has actively sought to smear, defame and destroy counter jihadist activists and anyone who opposes jihad terror, but we hear no condemnation from CAIR of devout Muslims who, in the run-up to Veterans Day, have tweeted out their delight at the wounding and maiming of American soldiers in the service of their country.
In the wake of the jihad attack and murder in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, Cyrus McGoldrick, a CAIR leader, blamed America and said the violence that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Libya might have been “the straw that broke the camel’s back in terms of Muslims’ patience with American and Western intervention.” McGoldrick said on another occasion, “I’m here to Islamicize America.”
In light of all that and more, there should be no question: CAIR shouldn’t have a float in the Veterans Day parade. To let it have one is a slap at all veterans past and present.
According to World Religion News, “Commenting on the acceptance of CAIR’s application, vice-president of the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade Association Patsy Varnell only said they had to be fair to everyone.” Would they have let the Nazis have a float in their 1942 parade? Would that have been “fair”?
Muslim supremacists and their running dogs in the media justify the violence and murder of cartoonists, French magazine editors, and the attempted assassination of hundreds of Americans in Garland, Texas, because cartoons and drawings of Muhammad are provocative, inciting and “offensive to Muslims.”
Well, the idea of Hamas-CAIR having a float in Tulsa’s Veterans Day parade is offensive to the kuffar. Tulsan Larry Williamson was right when he said: “The organization is anti-American. It’s part of the Muslim Brotherhood, at least it’s a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee. This is not according to me, it’s according to the FBI. … This particular group, they are anti-American, they are enemies of America in a current war. Americans are fighting and dying to defend against the jihad. These people are here raising money for Hamas.”
Williamson and other patriots in Tulsa are right to be offended. But we don’t murder innocent people because we are offended.
These Islamic supremacists invoke our freedoms to destroy our freedoms.
