CAIR slams BNI readers for their comments about planned attack by Tennessee man on radical Muslim enclave in New York called ‘Islamberg’

c60bf53ef019affa0fb43970d700wi-vi

As you can see by the CAIR link below, they declined to post the name of this website so as “not to drive more traffic here.” What they really don’t want people to see at BNI are the stories/videos outing Islamberg as an area that has been identified as one of several Islamic terrorist training camp compounds around America.

CAIR: Comments on Anti-Islam Hate Site Applaud Planned Terror Attack on NY Muslims as ‘Patriotic’

CAIR today released comments posted on a well-known anti-Muslim hate site applauding the man who pleaded guilty to planning a terror attack on New York Muslim as a “true patriot” who had the “right idea” and should be given an “medal.” The comments were posted following an article about the planned terror attack. [NOTE: CAIR is not naming the hate site so as not to drive traffic there.]

TALK ABOUT AN OVERREACTION! Hundreds rally to condemn ‘No Muslim’ graffiti on the Texas Tech seal

Graffiti that more than likely was placed there by Muslims themselves, as they have been caught doing many times, to gain sympathy from the community.

14386631

KCBD  Students and staff at Texas Tech are uniting as police continue their investigation into who spray-painted the words “no Muslim” on a large reproduction of the school seal in front of the Texas Tech Health Science Center.

On Friday, two days after the words were first discovered, more than a hundred students and staff rallied together, including first year medical student Ahsan Niazi. “We are a community and we have to look out for each other,” Niazi says. “That talk just isn’t tolerated.” But Niazi says this isn’t an isolated incident and he says he knows the hateful rhetoric wasn’t just words, it marks deep into the culture.

Designated terrorist group CAIR demands massive media coverage of such non-stories and the sharia-compliant media is only too happy to comply, whereas they would ignore it if the graffiti said ‘No Christians’ or ‘No Jews.’

Designated Terrorist Group CAIR demands resignation of El Monte Official over Facebook Post

Once again, Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated CAIR anti-free speech Nazis are seeking to infringe upon the First Amendment rights of American citizens.

1509756_10152941359057695_8412842096704223053_n

CAIR  Art Barrios, a planning commissioner for the City of El Monte and a former El Monte city council member, recently posted an article headlined “China Makes Major Moves to Ban Islam” on his Facebook page and then commented, “Sounds good maybe the rest of the world should do the same.”

“While Mr. Barrios has the right to his bigoted views, it is unacceptable for a person who holds such views to be in a position of public trust and authority,” said CAIR-LA Public Affairs Coordinator Haroon Manjlai.

“Discrimination against building of mosques is widespread and well documented, and therefore it is unacceptable that a planning commissioner of any city, who ought to be fair and neutral, would hold such hateful views. We urge Mr. Barrios to resign his post on the planning commission, or failing that, for the city council to vote to remove him at their next meeting.”

CAIR thugs continue to whine about anti-Muslim material posted on social media by a number of public officials nationwide.

NEVER HIRE A MUSLIM Reason #138: More Muslim butt hurt over alleged headbag discrimination

Designated Terrorist Group CAIR demands the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) explain why a Muslim woman driver who wears an Islamic headbag was prevented from operating her train with a group of political VIPs as passengers.

lFranceAFP1309843476595640x480-vi

CAIR  According to the Muslim woman operator, the first car of her Silver Line train was commandeered for a media event last Friday featuring VIPs such as Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.).

Before leaving on her normal schedule, the Muslim operator was reportedly informed by a supervisor that she would not be driving the train and was told to sit in the commandeered compartment while being watched by security personnel. The Muslim driver ultimately burst into tears because of the stress and humiliation she felt. (Awwww)

14892-crying-1353754208-873-640x480

In her formal union complaint, the Muslim driver wrote: “I have reasons to believe that I have been discriminated against due to my gender and religious preference (Al-Islam).”

CAIR has contacted Metro and the train operator’s union about the incident. Metro’s director of diversity told CAIR that the incident is being investigated. 

“We urge Metro to explain why a qualified train operator would be removed from her post in such circumstances,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “Without an adequate explanation of Metro officials’ actions during this incident, the perception exists that the train operator was removed from her post because of her religious attire.” (Well, DUH!)

Designated Terrorist Group CAIR has expressed outrage that more ‘Draw the prophet Muhammad’ cartoon contests are now being planned

hooperbaby3vi1-viIbrahim Hooper (photo right) of CAIR condemns free speech organizers and anti-Islam activists Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch for saying, “We must hold more of these events. That seems to be essential, otherwise the message is sent that violence works and will silence free people.”

US News  Organizers of the Muhammad-drawing cartoon contest attacked by jihadi gunmen Sunday are planning to host more events showcasing depictions of the Muslim prophet. The organizers tell U.S. News it’s essential to stand up for their First Amendment rights against pressure from religious fanatics, brushing criticism they are recklessly provoking Muslims.

Muslims generally consider depictions of Muhammad offensive, and Western artists who thumb their nose at the taboo risk paying with their lives.

Spencer and Geller have yet to settle on precise plans for future cartoon contests. Geller, formerly famous for edgy ads supporting Israel and for rallying opposition to a planned mosque near ground zero in New York, has pushed back aggressively on media exhortations that she voluntarily cease her provocative commentary on Islam.

“I will not abridge my freedoms so as not to offend savages,” she told NBC News. “We should be holding these meetings every month.” 

article-1279690-09A7E991000005DC-659_634x247

Charlie Hebdo editor-in-chief Gerard Biard on Friday urged Western media to take a less timid approach to showing Muhammad cartoons. The risk to Westerners increases, he said, as journalists voluntarily self-censor in response to threats of violence or claims of offense.

Geller agrees with Biard, and says mainstream media’s approach to political Islam “emboldens the jihadis, as they see that the West is weak and unwilling to face reality, instead of determined and realistic.”

muhammadangry-vi

Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, one of the largest Muslim-American organizations, says more cartoon contests are certain to happen following the attack, though he doubts mainstream free speech supporters will host any.

“It’s an inevitability,” Hooper says. “Once these hate mongers find a winning formula for free publicity, they’re going to milk it for all it’s worth.”

Hooper says he can’t imagine outrage among American Muslims dimming if such events become routine, and he encourages opponents to ignore them. He says he doesn’t expect more attacks against the anticipated “hate roadshow.”

shariah630x286-vi

Though he personally detests what he sees as an effort to offend Muslims, Hooper concedes the U.S. Constitution allows such speech to happen. “I haven’t seen a legal argument that would stand up to scrutiny” against the legality of the events, he says.

Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, says “if a group did decide to host such a contest, I’m sure there would be a lot of pushback.” At public schools, he says, “student groups have powerful free speech rights that administrators limit at their peril.”

Will designated terrorist group CAIR condemn the Islamic terror attack on free speech in Garland, Texas?

Washington Times  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood front group, has condemned Sunday’s attack outside a Muhammad drawing contest in Texas, but put the blame on the event’s organizers for seeking to provoke “mutual hostility and mistrust” in the U.S.

“We condemn yesterday’s attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, without reservation,” but “We also reiterate our view that violence in response to anti-Islam programs like the one in Garland is more insulting to our faith than any cartoon, however defamatory. Bigoted speech can never be an excuse for violence.”

CAIRJohnson

The organization then provided several links to articles critical of Pamela Geller, an organizer of the Garland event and co-founder of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), which CAIR notes is labeled a hate group by the far left communist Southern Poverty Law Center.

CAIR-AZ-Gellar-2

“Unfortunately, human history shows us that hatred breeds more hatred, and extremism leads to more extremism,” CAIR continued. “Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Geert Wilders and the perpetrators of yesterday’s attack all seek to provoke a downward spiral of mutual hostility and mistrust in America and around the world.”

Corey Saylor, Muslim convert and spokesman for CAIR claims to support freedom of speech while accusing Geller of poking her finger in people’s eyes and comparing her tactics to ISIS.

Designated Terrorist Organization CAIR and other Muslim groups object to counter-terrorism measures designed to stop recruiting of Minnesota Muslims for the Islamic State (ISIS)

terrorists_among_us_-450x337Nearly 50 mosques, Muslim organizations and student groups have signed a statement that highlights concerns with a federal pilot program to combat radicalization and terror recruitment in Minnesota.

FOX News & SC Times  About 40 Muslim groups in Minnesota are voicing concern about a federal program designed to fight terror recruiting, according to a statement sent out Friday by the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

150328220500-exp-isis-aggressively-recruiting-from-minnesota-00010523-super-169

The statement, which contains the names of several mosques, student groups and other Muslim organizations, asks the Department of Justice to discontinue the program, saying it unfairly singles out members of the state’s large Somali community for their nationality and religion.

“While we support the right of all Americans to live in democratic communities free of violence, we cannot in good conscience condone or help refine programs that are fundamentally discriminatory and are likely to further subject our community members to additional civil rights abuses,” said the statement released by the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

article-terror-0619-e1408312987781

The pilot program in Minnesota is focused on the state’s Somali community, which has seen more than two dozen youth leave in recent years to join the terror group al-Shabab in Somalia or militants in Syria. Community members who have long sought help in stopping recruiting initially embraced the pilot program as an opportunity.

The statement lists 44 Muslim organizations as undersigned supporters. “It is our recommendation that the government stop investing in programs that will only stigmatize, divide and marginalize MUSLIM communities further,” the statement said.

minnesota-teen-to-join-isis

The groups instead suggest the following framework to combat extremism:

Support for a Minnesota Muslim community-based task force, which is currently under development to serve as an outreach resource for law enforcement agencies. (“Outreach” is code for allow us to brainwash law enforcement with the myth that Islam is a religion of peace and terrorism is anti-Islam)

politifact-photos-Muslim_claim

timthumb_php-vi

Funds for anti-radicalization programs should be separated from federal counter-terrorism and law enforcement agencies. Instead, funding should come from foundations, community organizations and state and local government. (That way, we can keep funding our terrorist pals overseas)

baca1

The Department of Justice should protect groups and individuals who intervene with those they believe are vulnerable to recruitment into extremist groups. Those who intervene should not be penalized with prosecution, watch-listing or surveillance because of their association with a potential violent extremist. (Surveillance of Muslims and mosques should be banned)

The statement also calls on Congress to investigate the federal government’s “overbroad surveillance of mosques and American Muslims, absent evidence of criminal activity.” (Just because mosques are breeding grounds for terrorists, the government should not be spying on them)

Members of Minnesota’s Somali community rallied at the Capitol on Monday in support of the families of the men accused of trying to join the Islamic State in Syria. Some wore shirts that said, “Free our boys” and chanted, “We’re not ISIS! We’re not terrorists!” (Even though our sons are)

Instead of counter-terrorism activities, CAIR wants the government to focus on:

– Youth and after school programs for MUSLIMS

– Job fairs and job training programs for MUSLIMS

– Eliminate ethnic profiling at the airport of MUSLIMS

– Get more Somali MUSLIMS into law enforcement careers (AKA fox guarding henhouse)

– Increase engagement between MUSLIM religious leaders and MUSLIM youth (one of the best ways to recruit future terrorists)

Designated Terrorist Group CAIR thug attempts to disrupt press conference with Geert Wilders

geertwilders1-e1417327160538Hamas-linked CAIR today released a video showing its questioning of the politician they have dubbed an “infamous Dutch Islamophobe,” Geert Wilders, at a Capitol Hill news conference with his congressional hosts Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).

CAIR Government Affairs Manager Robert McCaw pressed Rep. Gohmert as to whether he stood by “Wilders’ statement that Islam is an ideology of a retarded culture.” Congressman Gohmert stated that he “proudly stands by Wilders.” McCaw also pressed Wilders on whether or not the Republican Party should adopt his Dutch Freedom Party’s proposal of “banning the Quran and the building of new mosques.” “By endorsing and promoting Geert Wilders’ anti-Muslim hate, CAIR says these elected officials tarnish the Republican Party’s reputation and harm the nation’s international image,” said McCaw. In April, CAIR called on Republican Party leaders to disinvite Wilders from two speaking events in Washington, D.C., hosted by GOP Congressmen King and Gohmert.

And here we go, Muslim congressmen Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Andre Carson (D-IN) whining about “importing hate to the steps of Congress.” Only when the two of you are standing there is there hate, you terrorist-supporting pieces of garbage.
