WND, by Joseph Farah, Sep. 24, 2015:
Did Dr. Ben Carson hit a nerve with his politically incorrect but morally correct statement that Americans should be wary of voting for a Muslim president?
Yes, he did.
And the proof is the response from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which called on him to withdraw from the presidential race.
CAIR is not only a Muslim Brotherhood front group and a darling of the U.S. media establishment. It is also joined at the hip with the terrorist group Hamas. In fact, in the biggest trial in American history on the funding of terrorist groups, CAIR was shown to be a wholly owned subsidiary of Hamas.
As WND has reported and documented, more than a dozen staffers, officials and board members of CAIR have been indicted or convicted of terrorist-related crimes – something the press consistently fails to mention when they gleefully turn to the organization for the “Muslim point of view” on a daily basis.
Years ago, a division of WND exposed CAIR’s history and inner workings in a book called “Muslim Mafia.” CAIR sued one of the authors who had penetrated CAIR headquarters by posing as a trusted intern and got access to top officials and files. WND has been defending the author and the whistleblower ever since in what has dragged on endlessly as a federal case, even though our legal team demonstrated CAIR was not even a legally incorporated entity when it filed the suit.
CAIR conducts both media jihad and legal jihad against its critics – discouraging any real investigations and exposure of its many alarming tactics inside the U.S.
If the American people had any idea that CAIR is not merely the “Muslim civil rights organization” it claims to be, but rather the most active and well-known Muslim Brotherhood front group in the U.S., they would be up in arms. Yet, the same people, the same institutions, that tried to drive Dr. Carson out of the presidential race for his perfectly sensible and reasonable comments protect CAIR by hiding the truth.
No other news organization in the country has devoted more time, resources and money nor paid a bigger price for taking on CAIR than WND.
At the very least, you owe it to yourself and your country to learn the truth about this insidious group. You can do that by buying the book or by making a donation of $25 or more to WND and get one with our thanks.
It’s infuriating that CAIR is winning so many converts in America – not converts to Islam, but converts to the notion that Muslims are a badly treated, actively discriminated-against minority group within the U.S.
FBI statistics show that of all so-called “hate crimes” perpetrated against Americans, 60 percent of the victims are Jewish Americans. Muslims don’t even show up in the charts. Anti-Semitism is rapidly spreading in the U.S., in part because of groups like CAIR who denounce Israel and “Zionism” at every opportunity.
There was a time when I, as an Arab-American, would be called on by the Big Media to debate officials from CAIR. I must have done too well. Because CAIR has been running wild on the media front for a decade essentially unchallenged. It has become untouchable, unquestioned, a sacred cow for the press.
It’s an example of how political correctness turns the victim into the perpetrator.
If you’ve had enough of subversive groups like CAIR, it’s time to fight back.
If you’ve had enough of subversives in the media, it’s also time to fight back.
