The Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations (CAIR) appears to be attempting to capitalize on the Republican Party establishment’s desire to have a bigger tent when it comes to embracing minorities. Now that they have successfully wormed and bribed their way into the Democrat party, they will try it with the GOP.
Contact Republican Representatives and Senators and warn them about CAIR. Here is a very good link you can send them and/or use excerpts from it in your email: CAIR Background. You can also include a link to all the CAIR stories from BNI.
Shoebat After losing the election, there is a debate within the Republican Party about what needs to be done to get more minority votes. CAIR’s leadership apparently wants a piece of that action and is pointing to what they think is a carrot for Republican politicians in the form of a large percentage of Muslims who voted for Barack Obama.
American Muslims to Ask GOP to Reassess Relationship Coalition to announce full-page ad inviting better GOP-Muslim relations
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/4/12) — On Wednesday, December 5, a coalition of American Muslim organizations will hold a noon news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to call on the Republican Party to reassess and improve its relationship with U.S. Muslims.
WHEN: Wednesday, December 5, Noon
WHERE: Lisagor Room, National Press Club, 13th Floor, National Press Building, 529 14th Street N.W., Washington, D.C.
CONTACT: CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor, 202-384-8857, [email protected]
The coalition will also announce the publication of a full-page advertisement in the conservative Washington Times newspaper outlining the need for that reassessment.
Here is an excerpt from that open letter:
“We are writing to offer an open invitation to reassess your party’s current relationship with American Muslims. As with other demographics, American Muslim support for Republicans has dropped precipitously in recent years. This shift away from the GOP is not set in stone, but its future direction is dependent on choices your party makes.”
