CAIR: Deciding Who is a Muslim?
The council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has appointed itself
an additional mission; deciding who may call themselves a “Muslim”.
Various law enforcement agencies recently rounded up a group of seven
Miami, Florida men on terrorism charges:
Shortly after the arrests, CAIR spokesperson Ahmed Bedier had this to
"Given that the reported beliefs of this bizarre group have nothing to
do with Islam, we ask members of the media to refrain from calling them 'Muslims"
The truth, an alien institution not quite fully understood or welcome
at CAIR, may be an entirely different matter.
From CNN news:
“Narseal Batiste, considered the recruiter of the group, according to
the document, tried to reach out to al Qaeda by contacting someone who
was an FBI operative posing as a member of the terrorist network.”
“Batiste allegedly told the informant that he was organizing an Islamic
army to wage a jihad in the United States.”
From the indictment:
"The conspirators pledged an oath to al Qaeda and supported a purported
mission of al Qaeda to destroy FBI buildings within the United States."
“…document said that Batiste wanted to "attend al Qaeda training, along
with five of his soldiers, during the second week of April and further
detailed his mission to wage a 'full ground war' against the United
States in order to 'kill all the devils we can' ... beginning with the
destruction of the Sears Tower."
“…accuses the seven men of swearing an oath of loyalty to al Qaeda.”
Now that Bedier has demonstrated his new-found ability to determine
just who is, and who is not, a Muslim, maybe he can help point out Muslim
Mr. Bedier? North America is waiting…
