Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR whines “It’s a sign of the times that a Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) banner was removed from Muslim American Society building”

The uproar that resulted in the removal of a Hajj banner at the Muslim American Society of Staten Island, NY is a sign of the “near hysteria” nationwide over anything related to Islam,  a spokesman for the Council on Islamic American Relgions (CAIR) said.

(Gee, if the barbaric removal of an innocent Christian grandmother’s head by a Muslim isn’t a cause for anti-Muslim hysteria, what is?)

SI Live  “This is unfortunately just one symptom of growing anti-Muslim sentiment in our society, in which any reference to anything to do with Islam or Muslims becomes ‘controversial,'” said Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

“I understand their motivation, they want to be good neighbors,” Hooper said of the MAS decision to remove the sign. But Hooper added, “I don’t think they should have had to take the sign down. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the sign.” (Anything to do with Islam should be removed from America including 2.6 million Muslims)

The red sign that was hung outside of the building at 180 Burgher Ave. contained a picture of a white Saudi Arabian aircraft with Islamic writing.


The sign was in celebration of Hajj which is the annual Muslim pilgrimage now underway to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Scott LoBaido, a local artist and community activist, deemed the sign offensive and said it was insensitive of the MAS to display the image so close to the anniversary of 9/11.  

“Is there some buffer period when nothing related to Islam can occur around 9/11?” Hooper said. “American Muslims are part of this society just like any other faith.” (How about forever? Anything related to Islam should be permanently banned in civilized societies, especially CAIR)

He noted that many mosques throughout the country are doing Hajj theme displays and that the airplane image is appropriate since most pilgrims fly as part of their journey to Mecca.

“Pilgrims from different parts of the world continue arriving in the Kingdom for the Hajj,” said a post on Wednesday on the web site for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, D.C.
