Frederick County will now close it schools for Muslim holidays. Neighboring Montgomery County decided to remove all religious holidays from its calendar rather than give in to the CAIR thugs. Shame on both of them.
They also praise Egypt and General (now President) al-Sisi for deposing former President and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi.
Thank you, Dougie Hooper of CAIR, for posting this. Now that you are on the United Arab Emirates list of terrorist organizations, maybe you’ll start to understand why so many Americans hate Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR.
Ibrahim Douglas Hooper, a Muslim convert, is National Communications Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that has just been named to the United Arab Emirates list of designated terrorist organizations. He may be contacted at:

CAIR “Behold! The angels said: ‘O Mary! God giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and in (the company of) those nearest to God.’”
Before searching for this quote in the New Testament, you might first ask your Muslim co-worker, friend or neighbor for a copy of the Quran, Islam’s revealed text. The quote is from verse 45 of chapter 3 in the Quran.
It is well known, particularly in this holiday season, that Christians follow the teachings of Jesus. What is less well understood is that Muslims also love and revere Jesus as one of God’s greatest messengers to mankind.
Other verses in the Quran, regarded by Muslims as the direct word of God, state that Jesus was strengthened with the “Holy Spirit” (2:87) and is a “sign for the whole world.” (21:91) His virgin birth was confirmed when Mary is quoted as asking: “How can I have a son when no man has ever touched me?” (3:47)
The Quran shows Jesus speaking from the cradle and, with God’s permission, curing lepers and the blind. (5:110) God also states in the Quran: “We gave (Jesus) the Gospel (Injeel) and put compassion and mercy into the hearts of his followers.” (57:27)
As forces of hate in this country and worldwide try to pull Muslims and Christians apart, we are in desperate need of a unifying force that can bridge the widening gap of interfaith misunderstanding and mistrust. That force could be the message of love, peace and forgiveness taught by Jesus and accepted by followers of both faiths.
Christians and Muslims would do well to consider another verse in the Quran reaffirming God’s eternal message of spiritual unity: “Say ye: ‘We believe in God and the revelation given to us and to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and it is unto Him that we surrender ourselves.’” (2:136)
The Prophet Muhammad himself sought to erase any distinctions between the message he taught and that taught by Jesus, who he called God’s “spirit and word.” Prophet Muhammad said: “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.”
When Muslims mention the Prophet Muhammad, they always add the phrase “peace be upon him.” Christians may be surprised to learn that the same phrase always follows a Muslim’s mention of Jesus or that we believe Jesus will return to earth in the last days before the final judgment. Disrespect toward Jesus, as we have seen all too often in our society, is very offensive to Muslims.
Unfortunately, violent events and hate-filled rhetoric around the world provide ample opportunity for promoting religious hostility. And yes, Muslims and Christians do have some differing perspectives on Jesus’ life and teachings. But his spiritual legacy offers an alternative opportunity for people of faith to recognize their shared religious heritage.
America’s Muslim community stands ready to honor that legacy by building bridges of interfaith understanding and challenging those who would divide our nation along religious or ethnic lines.
Residents of Georgia must contact the City Council in Kennesaw before the next vote on Monday, Dec. 15th, and tell them NOT to allow another terrorist training center (mosque) to be built in a shopping mall which they originally voted to reject.
Kennesaw City Council
Address:2529 J O Stephenson Ave Kennesaw, GA 30144
AJC After threats of a federal lawsuit by designated terrorist organization CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), the application to allow a storefront mosque in a Kennesaw shopping center will be back on the city council’s agenda Monday. The council had rejected the application by a 4-1 vote on Dec. 1.
Opponents argued that a place of worship, no matter the religion, has no place in a retail strip mall. Some expressed opposition to the presence of Muslims, period, saying the worship center in Kennesaw “will endanger our freedom.” “And it’s all about safety,” said a speaker. “Look at the TV every night. It’s global.”
Wednesday night, the council and Mayor Mark Mathews held a closed-door work session. According to a statement released by Mathews afterward, council members Leonard Church, Tim Killingsworth, Jim Sebastian and Debra Williams said they wanted to change their votes against allowing the mosque to open.
Each of the four council members had previously voted against allowing the mosque. (What did CAIR threaten to do to them that suddenly caused them to change their mind?)
Mathews says there will be no limitations — called stipulations — required for the mosque to open. Kennesaw staff had recommended approval of the request by Suffa Dawat Center, Inc., which wants to open a worship center at 2750 Jiles Road.
The suspect in an altercation with a Somali Muslim cab driver allegedly called him a ‘terrorist’ and beat him unconscious, according to the driver.
13 FOX An investigation is underway after a cab driver was allegedly beaten so severely he lost consciousness while behind the wheel, resulting in his cab rolling down a street and hitting multiple cars.
Somali Muslim alleged ‘victim’
According to the driver, it all began when that driver picked up three men and a woman from Belltown just before 2:00 a.m. Sunday and drove them to an apartment building in Magnolia. The driver said one of the passengers, a 26-year-old man, gave him a credit card to pay for the trip but became angry when it took longer than he thought it should.
The passenger allegedly threatened to shoot the man while calling him a ‘terrorist.’ “You should go back to your own country,” the man reportedly said. The man then leaned across the seat and allegedly punched the driver in the face, police said. Police allege that the beating continued until the 34-year-old driver passed out at the wheel, his foot slipped off the brake and the cab rolled down hill hitting several parked cars near the 4200 block of 27th Avenue W.
The cab eventually stopped when it hit the stairs of an apartment building. Neighbors came outside and the passenger ran from the scene. The cab driver came to and was able to tell police what had happened. He was treated by medics for his injuries.
The passenger came back to the cab after some time and talked to police. He called himself a Navy Veteran and said he asked the driver if he hated America and was involved in the terrorist organization ISIS after the credit card transaction took a long time. He then told police the two began fighting, and he punched the cab driver in self defense. The man was arrested and booked into King County Jail on investigation of malicious mischief and malicious harassment.
At the news conference scheduled to take place later today, CAIR also announced it will ask for the community’s help in identifying the other two perpetrators in the case and will announce a request to the US military to take appropriate action against suspect and any other military personnel involved in the brutal attack, based on its own investigation. (Bite me, CAIR)
Enacting the End Racial Profiling Act (H.R. 2851/S.1038), prohibiting the use of racial profiling by federal, state, or local law enforcement agencies;
Pushing for the DOJ to revisit its newly revised guidelines on racial profiling that retain exemptions for DHS agents’ use of religion, national origin and other characteristics to profile at airports and the border and allow the FBI to “map” minority communities to place informants;
Providing the DOJ with more resources to dedicate to special prosecutors to independently investigate the police shooting of U.S. minorities.
The experiences of Muslims in America shed light on many key civil and human rights issues, on the need to reform the criminal justice system and on how police-community relations are handled,” said CAIR Government Affair Manager Robert McCaw. “CAIR is concerned that the reported actions of racial and religious profiling by state and federal law enforcement, including the FBI and CBP, could weaken the Muslim community’s trust in law enforcement, be in violation of the U.S. Constitution and public law, impact public safety by diverting limited law enforcement resources, and sidetrack such agencies from their mission to protect the U.S. citizens.” (In other words, don’t profile potential Muslim terrorists because it hurts our sensibilities)
The Philadelphia Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood front group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a federal lawsuit today on behalf of a Muslim congregation called Bensalem Masjid (Mosque) challenging the discriminatory and burdensome zoning system as well as the Pennsylvania’s township’s denial of their variance application to build the first mosque in Bensalem.
Mohamed Elibiary is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group as well as a former advisor to Barack Hussein Obama
CAIR Bensalem has more than 200 (too many) Muslim families who currently pray in a fire hall because the township has no mosque. “Our community has spent five years simply trying to find an appropriate place to come together to pray,” said Dr. Imtiaz Chaudhry, one of the members of Bensalem Masjid. (There are 56 muslim countries that would be happy to have you) “All we want is the same freedom to practice our religion that other faith groups have in Bensalem.” (Islam is not a faith, it’s a death cult)
“Bensalem’s zoning scheme gives the township unbridled discretion over which religious groups can worship in the township, and they’ve chosen to deny Muslims the opportunity to build the township’s first mosque,” said Roman Storzer, one of the attorneys representing Bensalem Masjid. (Good for them!)
Bensalem requires religious facilities to be built only on specially zoned lots. The lawsuit alleges that all such lots are occupied or otherwise unavailable to Bensalem Masjid. The congregation sought permission to build the mosque near several other churches and schools on Hulmeville Road. However, the Zoning Hearing Board denied the application, despite having granted similar applications by applicants of other faiths.
The lawsuit alleges violations of the United States Constitution’s protections for free expression, free exercise of religion, and equal treatment, as well as violations of federal and state statutory protections for freedom of religion. “Every American has a right to the free exercise of religion on equal terms with other religions, and governments cannot restrict that free exercise without a good reason. (Muslims are not Americans and never will be)
Bensalem Township violated those fundamental principles by refusing to allow the construction of a mosque without any compelling reasons for doing so,” said CAIR Staff Attorney Ryan Tack-Hooper (Hooper is Dougie Hooper’s son), co-counsel for Bensalem Masjid.
After all, the UAE has joined the coalition against ISIS and has just named CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) to its list of terrorist organizations.
An American teacher, Ibolya Ryan, was stabbed and killed by a burqa-clad attacker inside the bathroom of a shopping mall in Abu Dhabi. The victim, identified as 47-year-old Ibolya Ryan, was the mother of twin 11-year-old boys and a 15-year-old daughter
An Emirati woman arrested on suspicion of fatally stabbing a U.S. teacher in a bathroom at a United Arab Emirates mall also is accused of placing a handmade bomb in front of an American doctor’s house. According to a diplomatic source, the woman arrested was of Yemeni origin and had traveled back and forth to Yemen “multiple times.”
The alleged attacker was fully covered, donning an abaya — a black, full-length gown traditionally worn by Emirati women — black gloves, a face cover and a hijab, or head scarf, police said. She fled the mall after the attack but was caught at her home and arrested. Police believe the American teacher, who was the mother of three children, did not know the attacker.
The U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi issued a statement, back in October, warning U.S. citizens of an anonymous Internet post that encouraged attacks against teachers at American and other international schools.
CAIR-Minnesotastan today called on federal law enforcement authorities to investigate minor vandalism targeting two St. Cloud, MN mosques as possible hate crimes.
SC TimesThe latest case was discovered Wednesday morning by an imam, a religious leader, making his way into the Central Minnesota Islamic Center. The building is located just north of St. Cloud State University on Fourth Avenue South. Ten starburst cracks pepper a window about the size of a door frame. Spokesperson for the center, Mohamoud Mohamed, said this is the third time the building has been vandalized over the last few weeks. Each case involved a damaged window.
“At the beginning we were thinking it was isolated — a student or drunk person. But it isn’t,” he said. “It is some person or persons who are causing damage and targeting our faith facilities.” It’s not just their building being targeted. Mohamed says vehicle windows are also being smashed as people attend morning prayer. This week, several worshipers reported damage done to vehicles outside the Islamic Center of St. Cloud, the mosque on Fifth Avenue South.
