CounterJihad, y Bruce Cornibe, Sept. 2, 2016:
The Georgia chapter of the Islamist group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is making a concerted effort to reach out to Republicans and conservative groups in Georgia. Apparently, CAIR wants to reach out to groups that it often demonizes as anti-Muslim bigots and Islamophobes– such as tea party groups— and to educate them on the basics of Islam. Georgia CAIR executive director Edward Ahmed Mitchell thinks that, by concentrating on conservative groups will help “solve the problem.” That is the alleged ‘Islamophobia’ problem. 90.1 FM WABE provides some details on this Muslim Brotherhood inspired outreach:
Georgia CAIR wants to provide an educational ‘Islam 101’ presentation, answer questions and talk about Muslim prayer rituals and demographics.
Mitchell said they typically get a lot of questions about terrorism, and terms like “jihad,” and “Sharia,” and he likes the opportunity to share facts.
We already know that the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is committed to “a Civilization-Jihadist Process” which deals with carrying out a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated.” With that said, imagine learning terms like “jihad” and “Sharia” from a Muslim Brotherhood front group like CAIR – a group that is labeled a terrorist organization by the U.A.E. At the very least, folks will not get honest answers from these efforts.
This more intentional type of outreach to conservatives by Islamists might be newer with CAIR Georgia (at least by Mitchell’s comments in the 90.1 FM WABE article), but is has been attempted for years by other Islamists. With conservatives as the Brotherhood’s main opponent in the U.S. one can expect more of these Brotherhood ‘outreaches’ to conservative groups to try to advance their Islamist agenda by deception.
Lately, CAIR Georgia has been doing more than just strategizing about conservative outreach, they have also been heavily involved in helping overturn a moratorium that kept the construction of a mosque and Islamic cemetery on a 135-acre plot of land in Newton County, Georgia at bay. The moratorium has recently been lifted to the dismay of many people of Newton County. Of course, members of the media, Islamists groups like CAIR, and others want to essentially call those opposed to the mosque and cemetery anti-Muslim bigots, haters, Islamophobes, and many other condescending terms instead of seriously addressing legitimate concerns.
First, when “the mosque development proposal was presented to Development Services in June 2015” allegedly “the place of worship was referred to as Avery Community Church and Cemetery.” It sounds pretty misleading. Second, we’re not just talking about a mosque and cemetery – it’s going to be more like a Muslim commune. Off of Masjid At-Taqwa’s (Doraville, Georgia) website, the plans for the 135 acres include: “Cemetery, Burial Preparation Facility, Masjid, Schools and University with their own athletic fields and sports area, Public Park, and lot more.” Furthermore, who’s going to pay for this grand vision? Imam Mohammad Islam said his congregation is comprised “of mostly Bangladeshi middle to lower income Muslims.”
In addition, by the looks of the small size of Masjid At-Taqwa’s current building, via a picture on their website, they have to be expecting a lot more Muslims coming to the area or they are receiving some large outside donations in order to cover the costs for this new construction. Third, are they possibly expecting Muslim refugees? New American Pathways (refugee resettlement organization operating in Georgia) spokeswoman Amy Crownover discussed the prospects of Newton County being an area for refugee resettlement saying:
“We work in partnership with communities, looking for communities where refugees can be successful,” which requires easy access to public transportation, jobs, English classes and other services. Newton County “isn’t an ideal setting,” Crownover said.
Even after the patronizing remarks it’s hard to believe this 135-acre Muslim commune wouldn’t be an area of interest for refugee resettlement. Furthermore, we have already seen how CAIR has advocated for more Muslim refugees.
Also, what kind of ideology is this Muslim community preaching and teaching? Partnering with the Hamas linked CAIR is not a good sign.
We can see by the mosque’s website they seem to favor segregating the genders – such as keeping a member of the “opposite sex from seeing or touching the deceased.” What kind of other Islamic/Sharia guidelines do they abide by? In addition, with cases like Muslims of the Americas it’s not absurd to think that other militant Islamic groups could have the intentions of taking over large areas of land throughout the U.S. to serve as training centers for jihad. There are many other serious concerns about this future Newton County Muslim commune (ex. potential problems associated with Islamic burials) but thanks to groups like CAIR, they are put on the backburner.
CAIR doesn’t care about this country. CAIR may reference the U.S. Constitution and freedom of religion as much as any group, but they are only tricks to bring about their goal of Sharia to America. This is why we need to pass legislation like “the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015” in order to stop these Muslim Brotherhood front groups from subverting our system.
