YES! CAIR is livid over UC Berkeley decision to override student group’s demand that Bill Maher be dropped as a speaker because of his anti-Islam views

mahersignThe University of California at Berkeley, in a show of support for the first amendment right of free speech, has shown fortitude in its refusal to cave to strong-arm pressure from Muslim student groups, by reversing a decision to disinvite Bill Maher as commencement ceremony speaker in December.

CAIR-- The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas-linked CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) tonight expressed disappointment at the decision of the UC Berkeley administration to override the rescission of an invitation to Bill Maher by the student group that selects speakers for the university’s commencement ceremonies.

The original invitation to Maher had sparked controversy and calls for him to be dropped as a speaker because of his history of anti-Islam comments.

“We are disappointed by the university’s decision to disrespect students by casting aside the long-standing process for selecting commencement speakers and instead imposing its own will,” said CAIR-SFBA Executive Director Zahra Billoo. “While Mr. Maher has the right to speak whenever and wherever he likes, he does not have the right to have his hate-filled views honored and tacitly endorsed by a prestigious university.”

UC Berkeley statement on commencement speaker

For many years it has been the responsibility of UC Berkeley undergraduates, through a committee known as the “Californians,” to select speakers for the university’s commencement ceremonies. In August the “Californians” chose Bill Maher as the speaker for the December commencement ceremony. However, last night the “Californians” reconvened without administration participation and came to a decision that the invitation should be rescinded.

The UC Berkeley administration cannot and will not accept this decision, which appears to have been based solely on Mr. Maher’s opinions and beliefs, which he conveyed through constitutionally protected speech. For that reason Chancellor Dirks has decided that the invitation will stand, and he looks forward to welcoming Mr. Maher to the Berkeley campus. It should be noted that this decision does not constitute an endorsement of any of Mr. Maher’s prior statements: indeed, the administration’s position on Mr. Maher’s opinions and perspectives is irrelevant in this context, since we fully respect and support his right to express them. More broadly, this university has not in the past and will not in the future shy away from hosting speakers who some deem provocative.

SHEESH, how many more times is CAIR going to demand the FBI investigate as a ‘hate crime’ a Molotov cocktail being thrown at mosque in Alburquerque?

This time, Hamas-linked CAIR got one of its Jewish useful idiots to sympathize with the Muslims…who probably set off the teeny tiny little firebomb themselves just to get public sympathy and publicity.

KRQE Albuquerque police are on the hunt for the suspect who threw a Molotov cocktail at an Islamic center in Albuquerque. The incident happened between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Islamic Center of New Mexico near Yale and Avenida Caesar Chavez. Police said the device did ignite for a short time, causing some minor smoke damage to the exterior of the mosque.

The president of the Islamic Center of New Mexico, Dr. Abdel Rahman Emawy, said, “I feel actually shock when I heard this.” (Oh, NOES!)

Hamas-linked CAIR demands Michigan Governor Rick Snyder condemn Republican Committeeman Dave Agema’s “camel jockey” remark

UnknownAgema made this appropriate remark in reference to recent news that Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists were using ex-Iraqi Air Force pilots to train them in how to fly Russian MIG fighter jets which ISIS had stolen from Syria. Agema’s benign remark on Facebook was:

“I wouldn’t be too concerned over this. American or Israeli fighter pilots could take all of these out in a single day. We had a saying in the Air Force that camel jockeys don’t make good fighter pilots and the Israelis proved this to be accurate.”

CAIR The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) today called on Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to condemn the most recent racist remark by a state GOP official on social media. Michigan Republic National Committee Dave Agema recently referred to Arabs as “camel jockeys on his Facebook page.

Earlier this year, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and state GOP Chairman Bobby Schostak both condemned Agema for his bigoted comments. But Governor Snyder has yet to repudiate Agema by name for his efforts to marginalize Arabs, Muslims and immigrants.

“We call on Governor Snyder to condemn Agema’s latest racist remarks,” said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid. “As the symbolic leader of the GOP in the state, the governor’s failure to condemn Mr. Agema by name for his racist (what ‘race’ is Islam?) comments gives many in the Muslim and Arab community the impression that he silently approves the comments.” (Hopefully he does)

Walid also mentioned that a series of racist comments coming from members of the GOP nationwide may influence how American Muslims vote in the upcoming midterm election. (Who cares?)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CAIR Seeks Probe of Maryland Teacher’s Anti-Muslim Statements 
Teacher told students ‘Muslims are dangerous … they will kill you,’ told Muslim student ‘you guys did 9/11′

CAIR  Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has asked the principal of Parkdale High School in Riverdale, Md., to investigate a teacher who made a series of anti-Muslim statements to his class.

According to a report received by CAIR, the teacher took time during his English class last month to discuss ISIS and the 9/11 terror attacks, telling the class, “Muslims are dangerous. They are terrorists and they will kill you.” Interjecting into a conversation between students, the teacher allegedly told students that one should never “be Muslim.”

Addressing Muslim students in the class, he reportedly said “You guys did 9/11.”When one student objected and said “we are not all like that,” the teacher allegedly said “No, all of you are like that.”

According to CAIR’s investigation, other students in the class disagreed and felt uncomfortable with the teacher’s remarks.

In a letter to Parkdale Principal Tanya WashingtonCAIR Litigation Director Jenifer Wicks wrote in part:

October 16, 2014

Tanya Washington
Principal, Parkdale High School 6001 Good Luck Road Riverdale, MD 20737 Tanya.Washington@pgsps.org

Dear Ms. Washington:

I am writing to notify you and request investigation of an incident involving discriminatory and troubling statements made by a teacher at Parkdale High School (PHS).

Our office received reports that Mr. Fanibi, an eleventh grade English teacher at PHS, made several derogatory and prejudiced anti-Muslim statements during his second period class on September 18, 2014. According to information provided to us, Mr. Fanibi interjected into a conversation between two students and told one student that he should never “be Muslim” and that “Muslims are dangerous. They are terrorists and they will kill you.” Further, it was also reported that Mr. Fanibi later discussed ISIS and the September 11th attacks with the class, and in reference to Muslims, stated “You guys did 9/11.” When a Muslim student objected to his statement and said that “we are not like that,” Mr. Fanibi responded by saying “No, all of you are like that.” According to the reports, many students in the class disagreed and felt uncomfortable with Mr. Fanibi’s remarks.

 We believe that Mr. Fanibi‘s discriminatory statements were intended to provoke hatred and arouse suspicion and fear of Muslim students present in his class, as well as all Muslims in general, based on their Islamic faith. 

c60bf53ef019affa0fada970d700wi-vi

CAIR is seeking an investigation of the incident, disciplinary action against the teacher, protection from retaliation for the students in the class, and diversity training for faculty and staff.

The Washington-based Muslim civil rights group is offering to assist in designing diversity training for faculty, staff and students.

CAIR offers a booklet, called “An Educator’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices,” designed to help school officials provide an Islamocentric environment in their classrooms.

SHEEESH! Another ignorant dhimmi Archbishop puts his foot in his mouth

Greek Orthodox Archbishop Theodosios of Jerusalem visits Hamas-linked CAIR’s office in Washington DC and makes an utter fool of himself talking about “coexistence” and the “tolerance of Islam.”

Archbishop Theodosios spoke to a gathering of local community leaders about the need for unity of purpose among faiths. He denounced rhetorical attacks on Islam in the United States as not being representatives of Christianity or America, and said attacks on Christianity in the Middle East are not representative of Islam.

The archbishop also said that the dwindling number of Christians in Palestine and the Middle East is a threat to the Muslim world because it violates the teachings of tolerance in Islam. CAIR executive director Nihad Awadacrap (left) just ate it up.

Terror-linked CAIR-Cincinnati demands ‘Hate Crime’ investigation of alleged threats targeting Muslim Bagheaded candidate for Ohio House

The Cincinnati chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood front group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today demanded that state and national law enforcement authorities investigate alleged threats made against a Muslim candidate for the Ohio House of Representatives as a “hate crime.”

CAIR  Cathina Hourani, a Muslim Democrat candidate in the 52nd District, claims to have received threatening phone calls yesterday after a story ran in a local paper about her candidacy. The article was followed by hate-filled and threatening comments. One such comment said in part, ““don’’t elect a Muslim SOB, you should start shooting them!””

Hourani has reported the threats to the proper law enforcement agencies. She is the first Muslim woman to run for public office at the state level in Ohio. (And hopefully the last)

Threats targeting a candidate for public office based on her faith are very disturbing and should be of concern to all Americans (they aren’t),” said CAIR-Cincinnati Executive Director Karen Dabdoub. “We believe the rising level of bigotry targeting Muslims in our nation is a direct result of the Islamophobia industry pumping out this type of hatred on a daily basis.” (Actually, all we’re doing is pumping out legitimate and verifiable news stories about what Muslims are doing around the world so Americans can make up their own mind)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CAIR Launches Website Exposing America’s ‘Islamophobia Network’

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/15/14) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today launched Islamophobia.org, the latest element in the Muslim civil rights organization’s work to monitor and challenge the growing anti-Muslim bigotry in American society.

CAIR’s Islamophobia.org site presents detailed profiles of a number of individuals and institutions involved in the American Islamophobia network.

“Islamophobia.org is a reflection of CAIR’s philosophy of educating people and empowering them toward positive action,” said CAIR Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia Director Corey Saylor. 

“Since CAIR included the first Islamophobe profiles in its 2013 report ‘Legislating Fear,’ local communities have used them to begin positive conversations leading to the rejection of bigotry in all its forms,” said Saylor. “We intend to continue this community partnership by further empowering local advocates with a centralized resource that provides detailed information about the haters who tour the nation spreading misinformation and religious division.”

The searchable collection of profiles includes well-known hate entities such as Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy and Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch. Additionally, the site features information on key, but less visible members of the network, such as a number of local ACT! for America leadership

Sadly, however, even though BNI is listed in the ” inner core of the U.S. Islamophobia Network,” it is not one of the organizations listed in their top moneymaker list. Please buy a BNI T-shirt or make a Donation in the sidebar (right) to help BNI fight the repeated attempts by CAIR to take us down.

As BNI has never been identified as a top moneymaker by CAIR, I demand that CAIR take me out of the story below about the leading anti-Islam moneymakers.

Unfortunately, BNI has not made it to this list

ISLAMOPHOBIC ORGANIZATIONS

CAIR categorizes U.S. Islamophobia network groups using one of two key tags:

Inner Core: Groups whose primary purpose is to promote prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims and whose work regularly demonstrates Islamophobic themes.

Outer Core: Groups whose primary purpose does not appear to include promoting prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims but whose work regularly demonstrates or supports Islamophobic themes.

Bare Naked Islam

Bare Naked Islam attempts to rebrand the Islamophobia movement as an exercise in political correctness. According to their website, “The ‘religion of peace’ is a concept the West is eager to embrace – all in the name of political correctness” and that Islam is protected by a “shelter of religious freedom.” The site regularly features discussions promoting violence against Muslims. Bare Naked Islam is in the inner core of the U.S. Islamophobia Network.

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

c60bf53ef019affa0fb43970d700wi-vi

CAIR believes Islamophobia in the United States is a current manifestation of the issue of prejudice that has plagued our nation since its earliest days. It is the same old hate, just with a relatively new target. Muslims, like Malcolm X, have been involved in historical U.S. movements combatting prejudice, but only after the 9/11 terror attacks did they become a primary focus for purveyors of hate. With this in mind, CAIR is dedicated to countering prejudice in general.

c60bf53ef019affa0fada970d700wi-vi

We recognize that while Muslims are a primary focus of hate today, it will one day pass to another group. We continue to work to ensure social and legal protections for all Americans, inspired by the sacrifices and ongoing struggles of African American Muslims and Christians as well as other minorities who have been marginalized including Japanese Americans, Jews, Catholics and others.

While this site calls attention to the groups and individuals promoting Islamophobia in the United States, we hope users will find the materials developed to counter prejudice can be used to counter hate against other groups as well.

CAIR’s Vision Regarding Islamophobia in America

We envision a time when being Muslim carries a positive connotation and Islam has an equal place among many faiths in America’s pluralistic society.

Among the indicators that this vision had become a reality would be the following points:

  • Islam has a 75 percent or higher favorability rating among the general public.
  • A person’s Muslim faith is considered an asset in private employment and public service.
  • Politicians welcome and seek public support from Americans of the Islamic faith.
  • Association with anti-Muslim movements or rhetoric discredits those who put themselves forward seeking to earn the privilege of public service.

CAIRDCJan302009_COPYvi-vi

Questioning Islam or Muslims is not Islamophobia

We do not label all, or even the majority of those, who question Islam and Muslims as Islamophobes. Equally, we believe it is not Islamophobic to denounce crimes committed by individual Muslims or those claiming Islam as a motivation for their actions.

Classifying Islamophobes

ISLAMOPHOBIC INDIVIDUALS LIST

Entries on this page are alphabetized by first name. Below the individual’s name are the organizations with which the individual is associated. The first organization listed is that with which the individual appears most closely identified in public. Other organizations to which the indivudual is connected are then listed in alphabetical order. Where there is no organization listed the individual is either independent or the group the individual is most closely identified in public is not designated as Islamophobic.

When CAIR identifies a group or individual as employing Islamophobia our researchers review the actions and rhetoric of the entity. Based on the results of this review the entity is entered into the American Islamophobe database and assigned to one of three categories:

Inner Core: Groups or individuals whose primary purpose is to promote prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims and whose work regularly demonstrates Islamophobic themes.

Outer Core: Groups or individuals whose primary purpose does not appear to include promoting prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims but whose work regularly demonstrates or supports Islamophobic themes.

Of Concern: Groups or individuals who have used Islamophobic themes or supported Islamophobia in America, but whose work does not regularly demonstrate or support Islamophobic themes. CAIR monitors but generally does not further report on groups placed in this category.
