CAIR Chief’s Designs to ‘Run’ U.S. Revealed

Monday, April 4th, 2011

For those of you who haven’t figured this out yet, here is the grand design of Islam: control the U.S. and control the world. Islamic law must be supreme, in their opinion, and they will do whatever is necessary to make it happen.

The same national Muslim leader who’s launched an “education campaign” to quell American fears over Shariah law once gave a full-throated speech to Muslims advocating an Islamic rise to power in America.

In a newly surfaced video of a 2000 speech to the Islamic Society of North America, Council on American-Islamic Relations Executive Director Nihad Awad told his Muslim audience: “Muslims in America are in the best position to show Islam and to show action and to show vision – not only for a Muslim school, how it should be run, but for an entire society, how it should be run. Who better can lead America than Muslims?”

The Justice Department named both ISNA and CAIR unindicted co-conspirators in a criminal scheme to funnel millions of dollars to Hamas suicide bombers and their families.

In the same speech, “Participating in Public Affairs: Strategies for the Year 2000,” Awad encouraged Muslim-Americans to be more assertive with U.S. politicians.

“They should be a servant to our issues,” he said. “We should be respected.”

Specifically, Awad advised that Muslim-Americans demand politicians include in their national speeches and party platforms that America is also an “Islamic society.”

“This is no longer a Christian-Judeo society,” Awad maintained. “It is a Christian-Judeo-and-Islamic society.”

At the same time, Awad reminded Muslim-Americans that they are still, first and foremost, citizens of the global Islamic nation and should do everything in their power to help their Muslim brothers fighting in Kashmir against Indian Hindus and in the Palestinian territories against Israelis.

He suggested they demand U.S. leaders in Washington cut aid to both Israel and India.

“We belong to the ummah, and we are an extension of the Muslim world,” he said. “We should talk about Kashmir, and we should talk about Palestine.”

Islamic law in America

CAIR is suing the state of Oklahoma to block a state constitutional measure banning Shariah law, which was approved by more than 70 percent of Oklahoma voters.

In a press release released last November applauding a Clinton-appointed federal judge’s decision to temporarily bar certification of the popular law, Awad announced CAIR was launching an “education campaign” to inform Oklahomans they have nothing to fear from Shariah law.

Awad said voters were confused by “misinformation about Islam” promulgated by “Islamophobes.”

He added: “CAIR plans an education campaign in Oklahoma to offer state residents accurate and balanced information about Islamic beliefs and practices and about the American Muslim community.”

Critics say CAIR’s leaders are worried about the passage of state constitutional bans on Shariah law, because they have a secret agenda to institutionalize Shariah law in America.

“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,” CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper told a Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter in 1993, before CAIR was formed.

CAIR’s founding chairman, Omar Ahmad, moreover, has flatly argued Shariah law should replace the Constitution.

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” he told a Muslim audience in Fremont, Calif., in 1998. “The Quran should be the highest authority in America.”

FBI Director Robert Mueller recently confirmed in congressional testimony that his agency has cut off ties to Washington-based CAIR, citing terror concerns with its national leaders – including Awad.

“We have no formal relationship with CAIR because of concerns with regard to the national leadership,” Mueller testified.

Wiretap evidence from the Holy Land Foundation terror-finance case put Awad at a Philadelpia meeting of Hamas leaders that was secretly recorded by the FBI. Participants hatched a plot to disguise payments to Hamas terrorists as charity. Wiretaps also record them stating the need to deceive Americans about their true aims.

The secret meeting, held in the 1990s at a Courtyard by Marriott hotel, was called to order by CAIR founding Chairman Ahmad. Both he and Awad launched CAIR not long after the meeting.

Mueller confirmed the wiretap evidence during a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing.

The Justice Department also designated Ahmad as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land trial, the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history. A federal jury convicted Holy Land’s leaders on all 108 counts.

Ahmad stepped down from CAIR’s board of directors shortly after his federal designation.

Among other evidence collected by the FBI, the names of both Ahmad and Awad – who remains at CAIR’s helm and regularly appears unopposed on Fox News – appear in a secret phone book alongside key Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzouk, whom the government says directed and coordinated Hamas terrorist attacks on civilians in Israel. Hamas has also murdered 17 Americans and has been listed as a U.S.-designated terror group since the 1990s.

During the Holy Land trial, U.S. prosecutors alleged that CAIR’s ties to Hamas are “ongoing.” In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, assistant FBI Director Richard Power suggested both Ahmad and Awad remain under federal scrutiny.

Deadly Koran-Burning Protests Spread to Eastern Afghanistan

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Once again, we can count on Islam to give us an example of it’s true nature.
What other religions kill, maim and destroy when their holy works are disparaged? Practically none. Did we see Christians killing people and burning and destroying unrelated property when Palestinian terrorist used copies of the Bible for toilet paper, when they hid out, from Israeli troops, in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher? Of course not. But Islam can be counted on to do so at the slightest provocation.
Was it right for the Christian preacher to burn the Koran? No, it wasn’t. But it did prove, once again, how backwards, violent and dangerous Islam is.

JALALABAD, Afghanistan — Demonstrators battled police in southern Afghanistan’s main city on Sunday and took to the streets in the turbulent east for the first time as Western pleas failed to halt the third day of rage over a Florida pastor’s burning of the Koran.

Officers and protesters skirmished for the second straight day in the city of Kandahar, leaving two officers and 18 civilians hurt, provincial health director Qayum Pokhla told The Associated Press.

In Jalalabad, the largest city in the east, hundreds of people blocked the main highway for three hours, shouting for U.S. troops to leave, burning an effigy of President Barack Obama and stomping on a drawing of a U.S. flag. More than 1,000 people set tires ablaze to block the highway in eastern Parwan province for about an hour, provincial police chief Sher Ahmad Maladani said.

Resentment has been building for years here over the operations of Western military forces, blamed for killing and mistreating civilians, and international contractors, seen by many as enriching themselves and fueling corruption at the expense of ordinary Afghans.

Coverage of the ongoing trial of a group of U.S. soldiers’ charged with killings of Afghan civilians and the publication of photos of some posing with dead bodies fueled that anger, which violently erupted Friday in a protest over the little-publicized destruction of the Koran last month.

Thousands of demonstrators in the previously peaceful northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif poured into the streets after Friday prayers and overran a U.N. compound, killing three U.N. staff members and four Nepalese guards.

On Saturday, hundreds of Afghans holding copies of the Koran over their heads marched in Kandahar before starting to attack cars and businesses. Security forces opened fire and nine protesters were killed but the governor of Kandahar said officers had only fired into the air. He said 81 were wounded and 17 people, including seven armed men, had been arrested.

Military commander Gen. David Petraeus and the top NATO civilian representative in Afghanistan, Mark Sedwill, said that they “hope the Afghan people understand that the actions of a small number of individuals, who have been extremely disrespectful to the Holy Koran, are not representative of any of the countries of the international community who are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people.”

The Taliban said in a statement emailed to media outlets that the U.S. and other Western countries had wrongly excused the burning of the Koran on March 20 as freedom of speech and that Afghans “cannot accept this un-Islamic act.”

“Afghan forces under the order of the foreign forces attacked unarmed people during the protests, killing them and arresting some, saying there were armed people among these protesters, which was not true,” the Taliban said.

The governor of Kandahar said he and the main leaders of the protests in the southern city had reached an agreement that would end the demonstrations. He did not provide details.
