Hamas-linked CAIR is training young Muslims for media jobs in order to misrepresent the truth about Islam

If there’s one statistic that explains the inspiration behind Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR’s (Council of American-Islamic Relations) Muslim Youth Leadership Program it’s this: Since 2005, the proportion of Americans with a favorable view of Islam decreased by more than ten percent. (ONLY 10%? It must be a lot higher now)


Seattle Globalist  Organizations like Hamas-affiliate CAIR exist to push back against Islamophobia and violence against Muslims that are common when those kinds of negative perceptions are so widespread. (It isn’t Islamophobia when Muslims really ARE trying to kill you)

In 2013, the CAIR-WA office received reports of over 350 cases of discrimination against Muslims in our state alone. (Oh, Boo Hoo)


Established four years ago, the Muslim Youth Leadership Program (MYLP) is part of CAIR-WA’s efforts to help Muslims to take a more active role in shaping the (false) portrayal of their communities in the media. (Just what we need, Muslim bagheads all over the media)

The free event, which took place in two sessions this month, concluding on Thursday, exposes Muslim youth to career opportunities in media, law, politics, and public relations, in order to equip them with the tools to shape  misinformation, laws, and policy.


According to CAIR-WA’s Executive Director Arsalan Bukhari, there is an increasing need to encourage today’s Muslim youth — who tend to be more attracted to careers in science and technology — to enter these fields to change the current state of underrepresentation.

“Research shows that we have a lot of work to do to get Muslim youth into these fields, that Muslims are highly underrepresented, ” Bukhari said. “We need to help Muslim youth get their foot in the door — to shape the views of the public, and the depiction of Islam and Muslims. We need actual Muslims to represent themselves and to tell their own stories.” (In other words, to deceive infidels into believing that muslims are not what we all see they are)


MYLP participants attend meetings with executives and CEOs at Seattle’s top law firms, public relations companies, and media outlets, as well as with political leaders and top law enforcement officials.

CAIR-WA recently released an analysis of The Seattle Times’ coverage of Islam and Muslims in 2012, taking a close look at the rhetoric and framing used in those articles.  

“To avoid perpetuating false stereotypes (stereotypes are stereotypes because they are true) and unintentionally fueling prejudice and hate (Nope, Muslims do a very good job of that themselves), reporters must accurately describe the background and reasoning for violent Islamic extremism,” the report said. (Yes, they must say that the cause is Islam)  “We found over 500 mentions of words such as ‘Islamist,’ ‘jihadist,’ and their variants. Imprecise terminology can fuel prejudice and hate in readers’ minds and becomes an obstacle in their understanding of issues.” (It is NOT imprecise but CAIR seeks to stop the media from accurately portraying Islam as the world has been witnessing it play out on our TV screens)
