BENNETT FOR PRESIDENT in 2016? Rep. John Bennett stands behind his statements warning about the ‘threat of Islam’ in America. CAIR is apoplectic over its apparent inability to force Oklahoma Republican leaders to repudiate Bennett’s anti-Islam remarks.
Tulsa WorldRep. John Bennett, R-Sallisaw, meeting Monday night with constituents at a Republican gathering and not only did not back down from statements he made earlier this month that were critical of Islam, he doubled down on them. Bennett has been at the center of a political maelstrom that has gained national attention since he published comments on social media warning people to be wary of Muslim Americans and then refused to apologize in the face of mounting criticism.

American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona along with CAIR and several Muslim community leaders wrote a letter Wednesday to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery to protest a counter-terrorism training session which focuses on Islamic terrorist groups.
AZ Central The letter said, “The use of anti-Muslim trainers and materials is highly offensive, disparages the faith of millions of Americans, and inevitably leads to biased policing that targets individuals and communities based on religion and ethnicity, and not on criminal acts or evidence of wrongdoing.” The session, titled “Understanding the Threat,” is to be presented by former FBI agent named John Guandolo, who focuses on the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas and their supposed infiltration into the United States. The training event is scheduled for Sept. 19 at a Hilton Hotel in Tempe.
Imraan Siddiqi, president of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Arizona, called Guandolo an “Islamophobe.” But Montgomery countered by saying, “I’m comfortable with the training they’re going to get,” he said.
From Washington state to Florida, surprising letters from banks have turned up in the mailboxes of at least a dozen Muslims. The message in each case: Your bank account is being closed. What frustrates the recipients is not only that they are all of Middle Eastern descent — leading them to suspect discrimination — but that the banks refused to provide the reason for kicking them out. (Not required to)
LA Times “We never understood what’s going on,” said AbdulHyee Waqas, who had his Bellevue, Wash., nonprofit group’s account closed. “We had been a good customer. It was very disheartening.” Last summer, a Minneapolis dentist went so far as to write detailed explanations of all his transactions, hoping that TCF Bank would let him reopen the joint account with his wife and his personal account. The response: Sorry, we’re not interested in your business.
University of Minnesota student Amir-Pouyan Shiva from Iran got the letter just before New Year’s: TCF Bank would be closing the account he and his wife had maintained for five years. Several other Iranian students also got the letter.
“I don’t see why there would be a red flag on anything I performed,” said the dentist, a Kuwait native who requested anonymity for fear of retribution from his current bank. “Maybe they have something I’m not aware of, but they said they couldn’t say anything.”
A Florida attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations has asked the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to look into the closures and determine whether race is playing factor in the decisions. A Justice Department spokeswoman said the issue was a matter for banking regulators, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
“The bureau takes seriously any allegations of discrimination in the consumer financial marketplace and is committed to ensuring consumers have fair and equal access to credit,” a bureau spokeswoman said in a statement. But she added: “We cannot confirm or comment on whether any investigation is ongoing.”
Frustrated by the responses from regulators, the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is contemplating a lawsuit against banks, said Executive Director Dawud Walid.

The Times has verified about a dozen closures involving Muslims, immigrants from the Middle East, and groups such as Council on American-Islamic Relations chapters, but activists say scores more have been affected. Similar concerns emerged in London this summer. Banking experts say that as banks have faced increasing scrutiny from regulators in a post-recession world, they are eliminating as much risk as possible. Lacking clarity on what might trigger government fines, banks are being overly cautious, some experts say.
“It’s not inconceivable to think an Islamic American or Arab American would be closed due to their perceived higher risk because of their connections to high-risk jurisdictions,” said Brian Kindle of the Assn. of Certified Financial Crime Specialists. “There’s something going on here, and I think it ties back to the de-risking trend.”
But the complaints of those forced to shift money to new banks raise questions: Why don’t banks explain the reason for a closure? Aren’t they required to do so by law? “Legally, they could say [for example] you bounced too many checks,” said Peter Swire, an expert in law and ethics at Georgia Tech University. “But banks historically have been very cautious about explaining their reasons because banks are understandably worried about frauds, and when they close an account on suspicion of fraud, they don’t want to tip off the fraudster about what they gave them away.”
Swire said it might be a good idea to create a system allowing people who feel unfairly tagged as suspicious to seek redress. He pointed to the Transportation Security Administration’s policy of letting fliers file a challenge if they believe that they have ended up on a no-fly list without cause. “For individuals on the no-fly list, there’s a procedure now and people get their names cleared and affirm their right to fly,” he said.
Kindle, the financial crimes expert, said that even if there were a way to challenge a bank’s decision, the decision wouldn’t necessarily change. Sofian Zakout in Miami said he had barely signed the backs of his new Chase Bank debit and card cards when he received a letter saying the personal and business accounts he had just opened were being closed.
He said he spent two hours answering personal questions by phone to open the accounts — questions that he called even more thorough than the ones he had received in the past from Department of Homeland Security officials. “I was very proud to answer all their questions. No problem. I didn’t take it wrongly,” he said. But dealing with the bank was a different matter. “To shut me down — this is not good,” Zakout said. “This kind of prejudice is not acceptable.”
One account was for his charity, American Muslims for Emergency and Relief Inc., which has helped victims of Hurricane Katrina and the civil war in Syria, he said. “Usually nonprofit and charitable organizations are scared to publicize such things,” he said of the closure. “I’m not going to be quiet. I don’t want to see this happening to anyone again.”
In Washington state, Waqas said switching banks left his group unable to spend money for a couple of months because of uncertainty about whether checks would bounce if they were deposited too late. Arranging the transfer and finding a new bank also brought extra work.
He said the organization, the Washington chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America, had a core of about 10 people who hold open houses at mosques and attend community events to introduce people to Islam. They also volunteer at homeless shelters and disburse funds to the indigent.

“Small, local organizations are trying to do some good work, and it looks that someone at the bank found something they didn’t like, and they didn’t have to answer to anyone,” he said of the closure. “Being a good customer, we deserve to at least know if we missed anything so we know we can act accordingly.” He would like to see a government forum where he could complain without enduring an expensive court battle.
“That this is national phenomenon — it’s kind of worrying, because if next they don’t like some other type of organization, will they shut down them?” he said of the banks. “There’s apparently no checks or ability to stop them.”
Muslims say this to shut you up, knowing full well you likely will never read the quran and therefore, never find out how very Islamic the Islamic State (ISIS) actually is. David Wood provides the top 10 examples from the Quran as to why ISIS is as Islamic as it gets.
Jihadists fighting for ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) claim that they are following the commands of Allah and Muhammad. Yet Westernized Muslims like CAIR, politicians, and the media claim that ISIS is violating the principles of Islam. Who’s right? In the following video, David Wood presents the top ten Quran verses for understanding the beliefs and actions of ISIS.
Now that you have tangible proof of how ISIS is indeed carrying out the quranic teachings of Islam, you can quash the lies you’ll be hearing from Muslim con artists like these CAIR spokesIslamists.
Oklahoma lawmakers refuse to apologize for cautioning people to ‘be wary’ of Muslim-Americans. Republican state Rep. John Bennett, combat Marine reservist who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is under fire for an anti-Muslim comment on Facebook that critics say ‘promote misunderstanding and incite hatred.’ The Council on American-Islamic Relations is demanding an apology, but Bennett says he’s tired of being politically correct.
NY Daily News An Oklahoma politician is under fire for cautioning people to be “wary” of Muslim Americans — but he’s not backing down. State Rep. John Bennett (R-Sallisaw) refused to apologize for a private Facebook post that called on Christians to “be especially wary” of people who call themselves Muslim-Americans because the Koran “clearly states that non-Muslims should be killed.”
The politician then linked to an article about the violent actions of Islamic State militants, NewsOK reports.
Bennett says he’s tired of being politically correct about Muslims. “For us to sit back and listen to their lies and deflection and let them continue on their claims that this is all racist and I’m an ‘Islamaphobe,’ it’s just absolutely ridiculous,” he toldKFOR
On Wednesday, the Oklahoma chapter of a national Muslim advocacy group roundly rejected the implication that all Muslim-Americans are to be feared and asked Oklahoma’s Republican Party leaders to repudiate his message.
Adam Soltani, the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Oklahoma director, compared it to accepting the KKK as representatives of all Christians. “Anti-Muslim bigotry and statements that promote misunderstanding and incite hatred toward a minority group have no place in the Oklahoma Republican Party,” Soltani told NewsOK. “Individuals elected to represent the people of Oklahoma should be held accountable for such extremist, inaccurate and intolerant views.”
Adam Soltani, CAIR thug
Soltani said that verses used to justify killings are taken out of context in the same way that Bible verses about violent historical periods can be taken out of context. One of the verses most often quoted in anti-Islamic rhetoric is Chapter 47, Verses 3-4, which condones the killing of nonbelievers. Soltani said that verse should only be read as part of the struggle that people in that particular time period had with foreign oppressors who persecuted Muslims for a decade.
Elsewhere in the Koran, Islam teaches that killing just one innocent person is like killing all of humanity. (Too bad Muslims don’t follow that idea stolen from Judaism)
Bennett, a U.S. Marine Corps reservist who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, lashed back with a claim that CAIR is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in America. “We must shine a bright light on the role of the Muslim Brotherhood and its varied tentacles in the U.S.,” Bennett said. “These tentacles include un-indicted co-conspirators of the U.S. vs. Holyland Foundation trial like the Council on American-Islamic Relations here in Oklahoma. Our borders are wide open to drug and human traffickers. Terrorism could come to Oklahoma just as easily.”
Instead of rejecting Bennett’s claims, Oklahoma’s Republican leaders appeared to support him.
It seems as if (CAIR’S) attack on his comments is disingenuous at best,” Weston said. “If they’re legitimate in wanting to come to the table and have an honest discourse, they can prove that by acknowledging the Jewish Holocaust happened, they can publicly recognize the right of Israel to exist and they can denounce the killing of Muslim converts to Christianity and other religions around the world.”
Oklahoma’s House Speaker Jeff Hickman said that “all members of the Oklahoma Legislature are duly elected by and accountable to their constituents, and are free to voice their own opinions.”
CAIR has repeatedly denied any connection to terrorist groups and condemned the Islamic State’s violent tactics.
The advocacy group is part of the recently formed U.S. Council of of Muslim Organizations that has condemned the extremists’ actions and emphasized that the Islamic State doesn’t speak for the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims.
Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas-affiliated CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) released its 2014 Civil Rights Report, and the results show: Orange County leads the state of California in the reporting of ‘anti-Muslim’ hate crime incidents during the past year.
OC Weekly CAIR thugs have four offices in California: San Diego, the Greater Los Angeles Area (Anaheim), Santa Clara, and Sacramento, and the organization cautions that increased numbers of complaints in those areas could relate to the proximity of CAIR offices. That said, the Muslim-American civil rights organization took in 993 hate crime complaints and of those, 444, or nearly half of the total, were from Orange County. Meanwhile, CAIR documented just 282 complaints in the Bay Area Santa, 115 in Sacramento, and only 92 in San Diego.
CAIR’s 26-page report doesn’t provide much detail into the various complaints it logged, but does include the following narrative involving a hate crime incident that took place in Orange County:
Two teenage American Muslim girls were using the restroom at a Southern California hotel when they were assaulted by a Caucasian woman. The perpetrator who attacked the girls pulled the headscarf off one of the girls and attempted to pull off the headscarf of the other teenager. While physically assaulting them, the perpetrator yelled “I do not approve of this, this is America!“
American journalist James Foley beheaded by Muslims
According to the report, CAIR reported the incident to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department (OCSD), which opened a hate crime investigation. While it’s unclear where that investigation led, it’s a definite improvement for the OCSD when it comes to hijabs. As the Weekly has previously reported, the sheriff’s department was sued by a woman who claimed deputies at the county jail wouldn’t let her wear her headscarf behind bars when she spent a few hours in a holding cell in 2006. The woman won a settlement against the county.
American journalist Steven Sotloff beheaded by Muslims
A Facebook post from state Rep. John Bennett reads: “The Quran clearly states that non-Muslims should be killed. Arab is the ethnicity, not Muslim or Islam. Be wary of the individuals who claim to be ‘Muslim-American.’ Be especially wary if you are Christian.”
Tulsa World Representative John Bennett from Sallisaw says he’s tired of being politically correct when it comes to terrorist actions being linked to Muslims extremists. CAIR Oklahoma chapter is now demanding he issue an apology for what they call “derogatory statements.”
The leader of the Hamas-linked Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Wednesday called on Republican leaders to repudiate remarks made by state Rep. John Bennett on his private Facebook account. Adam Soltani, CAIR Oklahoma executive director, is also asking the Republican from Sallisaw to apologize for the remarks. (Oh, bite me)
Adam ‘shady’ Soltani, CAIR thug
Soltani said Bennett took the phrase out of context. (Whenever a non-Mulsim quotes from the quran, Muslims ALWAYS whine it is out of context. The entire quran is out of context, a big mishmash of hatred and violence written helter skelter with no rhyme or reason)“This is something revealed in the context of them being at war,” Soltani said. “This is when you meet in battle. It doesn’t say just go out and kill people.”(Riiiight, tell that to the 2 journalists in Syria)
He said elected leaders should not be seeking to instill fear of Islam or Muslims. (They don’t have to, Muslims are doing a very good job of that themselves)
“Anti-Muslim bigotry and statements that promote misunderstanding and incite hatred toward a minority group have no place in the Oklahoma Republican Party,” Soltani wrote in a letter to Bennett. “Individuals elected to represent the people of Oklahoma should be held accountable for such extremist, inaccurate and intolerant views.” (Muslims incite hatred against them by their own actions. No misunderstandings there)
Bennett, 40, said he has no intention of apologizing, adding he was referring to Muslims who hold extreme views. Bennett, who served in the Marines for 21 years, said he was trying to inform and educate Americans as to what is really going on. He said he has been in the Middle East a few times and is aware of the atrocities inflicted by extremists in the name of religion.
Rep. John Bennett
Dave Weston, Oklahoma Republican Party chairman, called CAIR’s criticism of Bennett disingenuous. If the United States were ruled by Islam, Christians and Jews would have to pay a tax to practice their faith, Weston said. Those who do not pay are beheaded, Weston said. “Islam coexists peacefully with nonbelievers only if those skeptics abide by their unalterable stipulations,” Weston said.
Later in the day, Bennett issued a news release saying the terrorist activities of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria could soon reach the United States. He was critical of how President Obama has handled the situation, saying Obama has ignored confirmed Islamic terrorist movements.
Please show your support for Bennett. He is getting a lot of complaints (from Muslims and leftists) so your support would be greatly appreciated:
Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated/Hamas-linked activists like CAIR who strong-armed the FBI into purging anti-(Islamic) terrorism training materials considered ‘offensive’ to Muslims, have made their next wave of demands, which include an overhaul in the way ALL law enforcement officers are trained in the US.
Judicial WatchThe coalition of influential and Muslim Brotherhood-connected Muslim rights groups are demanding that the Obama administration implement a mandatory retraining program for all federal, state and local law enforcement officials who may have been subjected to materials they deem “biased and discriminatory” against Muslims.
There must also be an audit of all federal law enforcement and intelligence gathering training and educational materials to identify and remove information that could exhibit bias against Muslim terrorists.
Judicial Watch says, “the outrageous demands were made this month in a letter to Lisa O. Monaco, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. “Without executive branch actions, including those we recommend below, trainings that perpetuate gross stereotypes and false information about Islam and Muslims will continue to proliferate at the state and local level,” the letter says.
It continues: “The use of anti-Muslim trainers and materials is not only highly offensive, disparaging the faith of millions of Americans, but leads to biased policing that targets individuals and communities based on religion, not evidence of wrongdoing.”
Former FBI Special Agent and expert counter-terrorism trainer, John Guandolo is a main target of CAIR’s smear campaign against law-enforcement trainers
“These “activist” groups further demand that the Obama administration must pursue disciplinary action against agents and officials who engage in discriminatory conduct as well as those responsible for the anti-Muslim training materials.
Finally, the coalition insists that all federal funding to local and state law enforcement agencies be withheld unless they ban all training materials considered to be biased against race, ethnicity, religion or national origin. In short, these empowered Muslim activists want to dictate how our nation’s law enforcement agencies operate at every level.”
Among the signatories is the terrorist front organization Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has repeatedly proven that it wields tremendous power in the Obama administration. Founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists, CAIR got the FBI to purge anti-terrorism material determined to be offensive to Muslims. Judicial Watch uncovered that scandal last summer and obtained hundreds of pages of FBI documents with details of the arrangement.”
“CAIR also got several police departments in President Obama’s home state of Illinois to cancel essential counterterrorism courses over accusations that the instructor was anti-Muslim. The course was called “Islamic Awareness as a Counter-Terrorist Strategy” and departments in Lombard, Elmhurst and Highland Park caved into CAIR’s demands.”
The U.S. attorney’s office and the U.S. Department of Justice filed suit Wednesday against the city of St. Anthony, contending its City Council violated federal law by rejecting a proposed Islamic indoctrination center in 2012. U.S. Attorney Andy Luger said his office found that the council’s decision to deny the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to worship in the St. Anthony Business Center violated the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act passed by Congress.
Star Tribune Federal authorities are asking for an injunction from a federal judge ordering St. Anthony to permit the group to use the basement of the business center.
In June 2012, the council voted down the proposed center, concluding that a religious and cultural center was incompatible with the site’s light-industrial zoning. The council’s 4-1 decision went against a city planning commission recommendation to approve the 15,000-square-foot center in the old Medtronic headquarters at 3055 Old Highway 8.
The council decision came after some St. Anthony residents voiced their opposition to the proposed center. More than 150 people packed the meeting, and some made disparaging remarks about the Muslim faith. Jim Roth, the lone council member to back the Islamic center, predicted at the time of the vote that the council’s rejection would spawn a lawsuit. Roth said he was “embarrassed” and “stunned” by some of the remarks made.
On Wednesday, St. Anthony officials continued to defend the council’s action, saying that the rejection of the Islamic center was based purely on zoning issues. “Religious uses of any type are allowed in the vast majority of the city. They are just not allowed in the roughly five percent of the city reserved for industrial uses,” said St. Anthony City Attorney Jay Lindgren.
Lindgren said the denial “was not based on discrimination at all,” but rather “on the conclusion that religious assembly of any type is not allowed in an industrial zone. “An industrial zone is designed to create jobs and be an economic engine,” he said.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Minneapolis has spent two years investigating the matter, with its spokeswoman saying at one point that it had sought to reach an out-of-court agreement with the parties.
At the heart of the federal suit is the allegation that the City Council treated an application for a conditional-use permit to assemble at the business center on less-than-equal terms from other, nonreligious conditional-use permits for assembly. While prohibiting the Islamic center in the light industrial zone, it allowed for a union hall with banquet facilities to be rented by the public, the suit said. The city permitted the union hall because the light industrial zone allowed for “assemblies, meeting lodges and convention halls.”
The Minnesota Chapter of terror-linked CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) had asked federal authorities to investigate whether the city violated the federal law on religious land use. In August 2012, two months after the council’s rejection, the Muslim group proposing the Islamic centerpurchased the former Medtronic Inc. headquarters for $1.9 million.
The suit contends that the Islamic center conducts an “assembly” and therefore barring it violates federal law. Lindgren said there was a similar denial of a Christian-based organization around that same time as well.
Mosques and Islamic schoolprojects have faced opposition across the state. Some community members opposed projects in Plymouth, Willmar, Bloomington and Blaine, as well as out of state as in Murfreesboro, TN, where a 2-year hostile battle raged, but all were reluctantly approved, thanks to pressure from the Feds.
The U.S. attorney’s office said that the treatment of the center’s backers added substantial burdens to its members practicing their faith. “Abu Huraira members’ ability to exercise their religion is limited by their current worship site options, including, but not limited to the fact that members in the northern Twin Cities are burdened from praying together based on the lengthy of time it takes to travel to the worship centers in south Minneapolis,” the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement.
“Moreover,” the statement said, “prayer space at locations in Minneapolis are too small to accommodate members, many of whom often have to pray in hallways or entryways, and hold multiple pray sessions in shifts to accommodate crowds.”
After the council denied the permit in St. Anthony, three churches in St. Anthony held an interfaith meeting between Christian sympathizers and Muslim leaders in July 2012 to address some of the negative comments made at the council meeting.
“Some things had been said at the City Council meeting that sounded unwelcoming and unfriendly. There was a desire to show a different face on things,” said Rev. Paul La Fontaine, with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church which co-sponsored the event. He said he was surprised by news of the federal lawsuit.
Asked about the community’s perception of the Muslim faith, he said: “In light of recent events overseas, there is a certain concern. St. Anthony is a “first-ring” suburb of Minneapolis that’s just 2.35 square miles with 8,200 people.
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.
“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)
Oh, it’s in Caliphornia, no wonder. Thanks to strong arm tactics by Hamas-linked CAIR, the pretend baghead had to apologize profoundly. The top administrator of the Olivenhain Municipal Water District apologized this week for an incident at the office in which she wore a burqa as a disguise, intended as a prank on a subordinate.
Engineering manager George Briest, human resources manager Thomas Wood, operations manager Tom Kennedy and retired operations supervisor Eric Phillips posed with Kim Thorner, in the office in November 2009.
UT San DiegoKimberly Thorner, general manager of the Encinitas-based public agency, said she dressed up in the black garbage bag-like garment worn by Muslim woman to pose as a job applicant to tease the agency’s director of operations.
The hoax took place five years ago, and a photo of four smiling staffers posing with Thorner in the burqa was sent to U-T Watchdog this month by someone who found it culturally insensitive. Thorner apologized for any offense. ” I sincerely apologize if I showed any disrespect.”
Thorner without the Muslim black garbage bag outfit
U-T Watchdog sought input from local leaders in the Muslim community, and received mixed reactions. Hanif Mohebi, executive director of the San Diego Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, likened it to blackface, a theatrical makeup application used by nonblack performers beginning in the 19th century.
Mohebi said. “There are a lot of people that suffer because supervisors like her take these things lightly… You can be a practical joker, as long as it doesn’t harm others or mock others while you get tax dollars from us. “That segment of the community is already under a lot of discrimination,” he said. “I know that many women who do wear the scarf have a hard time getting hired.” (And rightly so. NEVER HIRE A MUSLIM)
Mohebi said his organization, Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), can provide cultural trainings, and that he would reach out to Thorner about providing one. “Our organization is here to educate and also to provide any kind of service agencies may need,” he said.
Thorner told the U-T she would take him up on the offer.READ MORE(Somebody please get Thorner’s email address so we can enlighten her about the dangers of meeting with CAIR)
The Oklahoma chapter of the Hamas-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today welcomes decision by Jenks Public Schools’ administration to stop using a documentary film about the Islamic terrorist connection to the Oklahoma City bombing.
In May 2014, after receiving a complaint from a concerned parent, CAIR-OK questioned the schools’ use of the film Conspiracy: Oklahoma City Bombingas a part of its Oklahoma History Curriculum. The film alleges that the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing was the work of “Middle-Eastern Islamist organizations.”
The below video and link show that Muslim terrorists were, in fact, involved with the funding and planning of the Alfred P Murrah building bombing in 1995.
