HOLLYWOOD, FL – CAIR (The Council on American Islamic Relations) defines itself as a civil rights organization. On its website CAIR states, “Since being established in 1994, CAIR has a successful track record in its defense of civil liberties and tolerance.“
One of CAIR’s founders, Nihad Awad, openly supports Hamas, a self-defined wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, members of which were instrumental in founding CAIR. In Article 7 of the Hamas Charter, Mohammad is quoted, encouraging the mass slaughter of Jews. In Article 13, Hamas rejects any thought of a peace initiative or negotiations for peace, adhering to a strict policy of total annihilation of Israel.
On CAIR’s website is also stated the following bit of self-congratulations:
“CAIR’s international reputation is substantial. In one manifestation of this reputation, Nihad Awad, the organization’s national executive director, was listed among the 500 most influential Muslims in the world in a 2009 publication produced by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center (Jordan) in concert with Georgetown University’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. In early 2010, Arabian Business Magazine ranked Awad #39 on its 2010 “Arabian Business Power 100″ list. In describing why Awad was named to the list the magazine said, ” … CAIR’s actions have forced many large outlets to be more tolerant of Muslim culture.”
CAIR’s international reputation is indeed substantial. CAIR has been designated by federal officials as being a co-conspirator in Americas largest case of fundraising for terrorists. According to the Clarion Project:
“CAIR is listed by the U.S. government among “individuals/entities who are/were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” The Palestine Committee was a secret body set up to advance the Brotherhood/Hamas agenda in the U.S.”
But CAIR’s international reputation is broader than that. United Arab Emirates has included two American Islamist groups on its list of terrorist organizations, MAS (Muslim American Society) and CAIR.
Certain people might advance their own opinions on such designations, perhaps finding that any Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, such as CAIR, supports not terrorists but freedom fighters, whose published intention of establishing worldwide rule under Sharia is a good thing that means to establish justice and protect human and civil rights. To evaluate such arguments, it would be very useful to examine the nature and tenets of Sharia, which is Islamic Law derived mainly from the sacred texts of Islam.
Recalling that CAIR claims to be a proponent of civil liberties and tolerance, let’s examine a few of the points of Sharia that CAIR’s executives and members promote. For example, in Qur’an 98:6, with reference to non-Muslims one finds:
“Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures.”
Non-Muslims are described as the worst of creatures. And as a consequence, the sacred texts of Islam have numerous instructions with regard to dealing with non-Muslims. For example, Qur’an 9:29 states:
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.”
Muslims are instructed to subjugate non-Muslims, to dominate them. The paradigm is to invite non-Muslims to become Muslims and, if they refuse, to give them the option of paying the jizya tax (something like an organized crime “protection” fee, accompanied by strict rules of behavior to which non-Muslims must subject themselves); and if the invited parties refuse both options, they are to be slaughtered.
In the next verse, Qur’an 9:30, one of many koranic reflections of Islamic views on Jews and Christians is found, where is stated:
“The Jews say, “Ezra is the son of Allah “; and the Christians say, “The Messiah is the son of Allah .” That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?”
These are just a small sampling. The Qur’an, Hadith, and other Islamic texts are filled with such antisocial expressions, and worse. Per those texts, those who oppose Islam, who reject Sharia, who criticize Mohammad, may be murdered, which is under Sharia a righteous act. But we are not speaking merely of the most humane form of capital punishment. Rather, per Sharia, those who oppose Sharia may be crucified, burned alive, stoned, raped, and mutilated.
As for civil liberties, under rule of Sharia Law, they are non-existent. Rights under Sharia belong to Muslim men. Women are chattel.
Muslim men may marry up to four wives, all of who may be children. Mohammad set the example, and was given permission, allegedly, to himself marry many more. His youngest wife, Aisha was six when Mohammad married her when in his fifties. Since he was such a scrupulous fellow, he did not consummate the marriage until she was a mature woman of nine years of age. And since Mohammad set the example of perfect behavior, Muslim men marry children today.
Mohammad also authorized Muslim men to possess as many non-Muslim sexual slaves as they wish. He also incorporated into Islamic law that Muslim men may rape non-Muslim women. That is why Islamic rape gangs have for years been terrorizing Sweden, Britain, and others parts of Western Europe, since Mohammad gave permission to do so.
Mohammad also recommends that Muslim men beat their Muslim wives, if they even suspect them of disobedience. The beating, however, is not to be too severe; which seems ironic, given that honor killing of family members is an honored institution to be carried out when a daughter, for example, dates a non-Muslim, or tends to like Western civilization.
In reality, it takes a strong stomach to read through Islamic texts, which are characterized by fascistic, perverse barbarism, hateful, genocidal spirit, and lack of respect for humanity, decency, rights, freedom, or sanity. But in them lie a rich source of evidence to establish that Islamic Law is hellish.
If the reader would like to read a great primer on Sharia Law, 52 pages written in undramatic, scholarly analysis, pick up Bill Warner’s “Sharia Law for Non-Muslims.” It is very interesting and easy to follow. Warner also posts videos on YouTube.
Several members of CAIR have been imprisoned or deported for terror-related activities. Others should be, who inexplicably remain immune, as no one in authority have been willing to act on evidence of their crimes.
Executive Director of CAIR Florida Hassan Shibly, for example, appears in a video on YouTube (“CAIR tells Muslims to Defy Customs Agents“) [added below], in which he openly calls for “revolution” against federal authorities. He should at least lose his license to practice law for that. And in another video, he encourages Muslim parents to teach Sunna to their children, which in reality is to teach children to support and promote Sharia, to follow the degraded example of Mohammad, and to think of sociopathy as a righteous way of living. Some would call his a crime known in some jurisdictions as contributing to the degradation of the morals of minors.
Other CAIR directors have clarified that establishing Sharia as a dominant institution in America and the world is of paramount importance. CAIR may at times deny that. But their insistence on promoting Sharia, and on supporting the agenda of destroying America, seem significant.
Sharia is deranged. It is the antithesis of American laws and norms. It is quintessentially opposed to human and civil rights. CAIR’s claim of being an organization dedicated to defense of rights is completely unfounded, ludicrous, and deceptive.
