CAIR bills itself as a “civil rights” organization although it is not. If the issue doesn’t benefit Muslims, Islam or sharia, you can bet CAIR is nowhere to be seen. That’s why it’s no surprise that they have hijacked the MLK, Jr. holiday and converted it into Muslim Capitol Day.
Not only that, but CAIR has chosen a terrorist supporting, unindicted co-conspirator to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing as their keynote speaker. What politicians plan on participating in this event with CAIR and the terror-supporting Siraj Wahhaj? From CAIR Seattle’s website:
Yes, that is the same Siraj Wahhaj that sharia-promoting Ground Zero mosque imam Faisal Rauf’s replacement has close ties with.
Wahhaj’s profile from Discover the Networks:
In September 1991 Wahhaj stated the following:
“…And [Allah] declared ‘Whoever is at war with my friends, I declare war on them.’ … Your true friend is Allah, the messenger, and those who believe…. Hear what I’m telling you well. The Americans are not your friends … The Canadians are not your friends … The Europeans are not your friends. Your friend is Allah, the Messenger and those who believe. These people will never be satisfied with you until you follow their religion …”
In a 1992 address to an audience of Muslims in New Jersey, Wahhaj expressed his desire to see Muslims seize control of the United States and replace its constitutional government with an Islamic caliphate. “If we were united and strong,” Wahhaj said, “we’d elect our own emir [leader] and give allegiance to him…. [T]ake my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”
In the summer of 1999, Wahhaj testified as a character witness for convicted terror mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman. Wahhaj stated, on the record, that he considered it an honor to have had an opportunity to host Abdel-Rahman at his mosque, describing the latter as a “respected scholar … bold … [and] a strong preacher of Islam.”
…In October 1995, Rahman was convicted (along with nine co-defendants) of planning to wage a “war of urban terrorism” against the United States…
Listen to this Siraj Wahhaj speech where he states Islam commands jihad of the true soldiers of Allah (SoA)…and says Muslims all over the world are getting their butts kicked, except those Muslims in Afghanistan.

Be sure that CAIR’s dream is nothing like Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream. Nothing at all.
