Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim ‘Dougie’ Hooper boasts of getting “anti-Islam extremist” Robert Spencer uninvited from a speaking engagement, and continues to call the recent brutal murder of a San Diego Iraqi mother of five a “hate crime” when it is just as likely it was an honor killing by a family member.
From a CAIR Press Release:
CAIR Good News Alert:
NY Law Firm Drops Anti-Islam Speaker Robert Spencer
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/29/2012) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations(CAIR) today thanked a prominent New York law firm for its decision to cancel an event featuring Robert Spencer, the leader of one of the nation’s most extreme anti-Islam hate groups.
Earlier today, CAIR expressed concerns about the April 18 event at the law offices of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel (Kramer Levin) in New York City.
The event, sponsored by the right-wing Middle East Forum (MEF), would have promoted Spencer’s claim that Islam’s Prophet Muhammad may never have existed. MEF is headed by Daniel Pipes, who is viewed by many Muslims as one of the nation’s leading Islamophobes.
“We thank Kramer Levin for taking swift and appropriate action to disassociate itself from Robert Spencer’s extremist views,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “The firm’s actions demonstrate a commitment to religious tolerance and diversity.”
