CAIR Rep Speaks on Hamas TV

The executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) spoke on a Hamas-linked television channel, telling Arabic-speaking viewers that right-wing ideologues are fueling violence against Muslim Americans. It’s not the first time that a CAIR official has hyped American Islamophobia to hostile foreign media sources.

According to a summary issued by the government’s Foreign Broadcast Information Service, CAIR’s Executive Director Nihad Awad appeared via telephone with the head of Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood group, the Islamic Action Front, and others for a July 23 broadcast of Hamas-linked Al-Quds TV.

Discussing the terrorist attack in Norway and right-wing extremism, Awad said American hostility towards Muslims was bound to turn into violence. The Norway attack marked the beginning of a wave of violence against Muslims and left-wingers in the West, he said. Right-wing media in the West is living in a state of self-denial by claiming Muslims are dangerous and that their incitement isn’t fanning violent hate.

As a consequence, Awad said his organization asked President Obama to stop U.S. intelligence agencies from allowing right-wing ideologues to “train” political and military leaders about Islam.

On the same program, a Hamas spokesman was cited blaming Anders Breivik’s attack on an “ongoing instigation of the Zionist enemy and Zionist lobby against the Palestinian people” and their allies.

Ali Abu al-Sukkar, the head of Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood Shura Council, also spoke by phone about the Zionist lobby’s role in militarization and instigation against Muslims. To al-Sukkar, violence against Muslims in the West should be considered a part of Western attacks on Islamic countries, and thus a clash of civilizations. It is also part of the Western double standard of blaming Islam for attacks by Muslims but not Christianity for Christian extremists.

It is not the first time a senior CAIR official appeared on hostile foreign media channels to criticize American policy and attitudes. “It’s really a disturbing situation where, primarily right-wing extremists are exploiting and promoting anti-Muslim sentiment for their own political gain,” spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told Iran’s state-run PressTV on June 6th. “And I think we’re going to see more and more of it leading up to the 2012 elections.” Hooper added that anti-Muslim sentiment is raging in America.

He made similar comments to PressTV on Wednesday.

  1. If there’s one thing these scum excel at , it’s propaganda. We should take a lesson from them and throw it back in their smirking faces.

  2. Shame on our government for helping to fund this treason! There is no statue of limitations on treason and someday I hope all of those involved get their sentencing. We have soldiers wasting their lives as even the Taliban gets funds through the program to feed Libyan rebels. Our troops couldn’t fight there because most of the rebels are Taliban. Bring our soldiers home! Closed the borders! Stop immigration.

  4. Get. Obama. Out. Now…

    The sooner these groups are recognized as the political organizations they are, the sooner we can stop their Federal grants. Then they’ll dry up, as their lobby powers will dwindle.

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
