Last night, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held it’s 20th Anniversary Banquet. According to promotional material, the keynote speaker was MSNBC host Al Sharpton.
We’re just not sure if he showed up.
The CAIR National twitter feed is showing photos of the other guests, Congressmen Keith Ellison and Jim Moran. No mention of Rev. Sharpton. On the flip side, Rev. Sharpton’s twitter feed makes no mention of his attending the CAIR event.
Sharpton had previously spoke at CAIR’s 18th annual banquet back in September 2012 . At that event he said he was “honored” to be asked to speak for “one of the most important civil rights organizations in the United States today and that is CAIR.”
We’re making a guess that this time he stood up CAIR in favor of the Congressional Black Caucus Phoenix Awards Dinner.
Big news here? Hardly- we were just wondering what happened the “Rev. Al”
The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch profile on CAIR:
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) describes itself as “a grassroots civil rights and advocacy group and as “America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group.” CAIR was founded in 1994 by three officers of the Islamic Association of Palestine, part of the U.S. Hamas infrastructure at that time. Documents discovered in the course of the the terrorism trial of the Holy Land Foundation confirmed that the founders and current leaders of CAIR were part of the Palestine Committee of the Muslim Brotherhood and that CAIR itself is part of the US. Muslim Brotherhood. In 2008, the then Deputy leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood acknowledged a relationship between the Egyptian Brotherhood and CAIR. In 2009, a US federal judge ruled “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.” CAIR and its leaders have had a long history of defending individuals accused of terrorism by the US. government, often labeling such prosecutions a “war on Islam”, and have also been associated with Islamic fundamentalism and antisemitism. The organization is led by Nihad Awad, its longstanding Executive Director and one of the three original founders.

COMMENT: A sobering message. Watch the video and make your own conclusions.
This month the dailycaller.com features Ann Corcoran, the person behind the website Refugee Resettlement Watch. Interviewed by Ginni Thomas, Corcoran explains how U.S. resettlement programs have grown over the years, transforming the face of communities across the nation – not always for the better. From the dailycaller.com:
In this 22 minute video interview, Corcoran discusses what might surprise most citizens about this federal program. Specifically, she discusses how church groups are being paid lucratively — by refugee — to do charitable work, the U.N.’s dominant role in our refugee program and the lack of substantive consultation with states and cities about these immigrants.
With all the persecution of Christians going on in the world today, you would think the largest Christian contractor would ask the government to only allow Christians for a time period. Yet, Corcoran says she was “shocked to hear the representative for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops testify at the State Department for more Burmese Muslims next year.”
Last month we mentioned Refugee Resettlement Watch in our report, Resettlement: an Islamist path to the west?. One of the issues we highlighted: since the Obama administration took office (2008), the number of refugees coming from predominately Muslim countries have increased to over 50% of the total admissions per year. In hard numbers that is 35,000+ out of a total target number of 70,000 . This increase is projected to be even higher in the coming years, due primarily to the unrest and fighting in the Middle East.

As a result the top three spellings alone accounted for the names of 7,445 boys, easily beating the second most popular name Oliver which got just 6,949.
Muhammed Is Britain’s Most Popular Boys Name
By: Andre Walker, 15 Aug 2014
As exclusively reported by Breitbart London last week, Muhammed has been crowned Britain’s most popular boys name in figures published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) today. The name of the Muslim prophet beat Oliver as the most popular boys name chosen by parents in Britain in 2013.
As a result of the way the statistics are put together, the name does not appear to have won, as the ONS classifies each of the different spellings as a different entry on the list. This means that “Muhammad” came in 15th with 3,499 children but “Mohammed” was 23rd with 2,887 and “Mohammad” was 57th with 1059 given the name.
As a result the top three spellings alone accounted for the names of 7,445 boys, easily beating the second most popular name Oliver which got just 6,949. Also the statistics are only published for the top 100 names, so the even more obscure spellings of Mohammed are likely to push the total even higher.
News that Mohammed is the most popular boys name in Britain was first exclusively reported on Breitbart London following a leak at the ONS last week. At the time, Mohammed was already the most popular boys name in London by some considerable margin.
The scale of the result is likely to leave the public shocked, although much of the mainstream media are expected to focus on the official ONS results. As a result, they will report that Mohammed only came in 15th, ignoring the multiple entries. In previous years, media outlets in Britain have not aggregated the various spellings and have only published the top 20 names, which makes it seem like traditional names remain dominant.
COMMENT/ANALYSIS: Add this to the laundry list of trends changing the face of Britain as Islam gains ground in Western culture.
*While Breitbart is claiming this as an exclusive, it should be noted that U.K.’s MailOnline published a similar report back in 2010.
Carry-on … nothing to see here …. (cough)
Islamic State: Young British Muslims debate Caliphate
BBC Asian Network reporter Catrin Nye gathered young British Muslims from different sects of Islam to hear about their views on the concept of a Caliphate and what it means to them.
COMMENT/ANALYSIS: Posted on the BBC on August 14,2014, the interview is about 9 minutes and well worth watching to get a glimpse of the mindset of younger Muslims (i.e. early 20s) living in the west. The panel consists of 4 men and 3 women and the views run from embracing the concept of a Caliphate to completely rejecting it.
Bring the label to a discussion or debate and your opponents tend to disengage, afraid to be charged with a “thought crime”. It’s a tactic frequently used by those lacking facts and/or logic to support their argument or cause.
A recent opinion article by Qasim Rashid on Time.com, “Debunking the Extremist Myth That Islam is Anti-Jewish” caught our eye. The article is in response to recent anti-Islamic bus ads in Washington D.C. by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
It wasn’t the issue of the ads, Rashid’s book plug, or even the selected Qur’an versus he uses that stood out. It was the second sentence that started with …
Islamophobes are fabricating the myth …
While Mr. Rashid probably wanted the reader to focus on the primary topic of his article, he failed in this case. In fact, he took away from whatever message he was hoping to deliver by using a label designed to silence all who dare disagree.
Who exactly created – or should we say fabricated – the term “Islamophobia” is subject to debate.
Some claim it was created about 20 years ago by the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT) as a label designed to feed on western societies’ tendency to fear being stigmatized based on bigotry. The other claim is that it was originally coined by Iranian fundamentalists in an effort to make Islam inviolate.
The bottom line: the word was created by Islamists as a weapon to be wielded in an attempt to silence critics.
Civil right’s groups have used this tactic successfully with the term “racist”. The gay/lesbian lobbies with “homophobia.” Terms that work as trump cards in a society so preoccupied with being politically correct that common sense can be lost. Bring the label to a discussion or debate and your opponents tend to disengage, afraid to be charged with a “thought crime”. It’s a tactic frequently used by those lacking facts and/or logic to support their argument or cause.
Just as civil rights charlatans need to push claims of racism in order to gain capital for their agenda, Islamists need to spread the perception of Islamaphobia. It allows the support base to rally around a collective victim hood. As “victims” in western society, political clout can be gathered that opens doors leading to footholds at varying levels of policy making. This was pointed out in Boston Bombings: CAIR’s predicted response and real agenda and Boston Bombing: cue smoke and mirrors.
Keep in mind that we are referring to a religious group – not a race or ethnic minority. Current estimates indicate Muslims (followers of the Islamic religion) make up 0.6% of the U.S. population, yet Islamic special interest groups have managed to obtain significant input and influence in matters of law enforcement and national security. Homeland Security and the Department of Justice have re-written training/procedural materials so as not to offend followers of Islam. Communities instruct police departments and service agencies on how to be sensitive of the special needs of Islamic followers. There does not appear to be similar policies nationwide to address the special needs of Protestants, Catholics, Mormons, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists or Atheists.
In pushing the concept of victim hood, groups such as the Council on America-Islamic Relations (CAIR) would lead you to believe that Muslims in America are constantly persecuted by law enforcement and discriminated against with Islamophobia spreading across the country. CAIR has a special office dedicated to combating it and even publishes an annual report, that Cultural Jihad highlighted last year.
The FBI Hate Crime statistics for 2012 indicate that of the reported 1,340 victims of anti-religious incidents, 11.6 percent were victims of an anti-Islamic bias. In comparison, 62.4 percent were victims of an offender’s anti-Jewish bias and 6.4 percent were victims of an anti-Catholic bias. A very important factor with these statistics: CAIR is very aggressive in responding to and labeling crimes against Muslims and their property as “hate crimes”. This tends to skew numbers as anti-Islamic bias becomes over-reported while other reporting groups are traditionally under-reported.
Questionable crime statistics aside, what about the general atmosphere of of how Muslim’s are received and treated in America?
They discover a nation — not of intolerance — but one that embraces them
The only real hostility they apparently encountered was by other Muslims at a mosque in Mobile, AL. One of the travelers even commented how he prejudged non-Muslims he encountered and had to put aside some preconceived notions he had. Could it be possible that pushing a concept of islamaphobia actually encourages bigoted behavior by Muslims and the unfair stereotyping of non-Muslims?
For another perspective on islamaphobia in America, there is always this 2011 video commentary by Pat Condell:
Back to Qasim Rashid‘s article in which he claims it is a myth that Islam is anti-Jewish. A few passages from the Qur’an for reflection on this:
O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. – Qur’an (5:51)
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. – Qur’an (9:29)
And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away! – Qur’an (9:30)
Apologists may claim these passages are taken out of context … it was during a time of war and does not apply to the Jews and Christians of today.
Modern historical facts paint a different picture:
– hardly a myth that Haj Amin al-Husseini was aligned with Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
– The Hamas charter identifies itself as part of the Muslim Brotherhood and calls for the destruction of Israel and killing Jews. The funding and support of Hamas has been a main priority of most Islamic relief efforts (i.e. Holy Land Foundation, Helping Hand, etc. ). Hamas sponsored children’s television has promoted anti-Jewish sentiments including “shoot the Jews”
– Saudi Arabia, an Islamic state and location of Mecca – the most sacred place and cradle of Islam – tends to discourage Jews from entering the country. While the official Saudi position is that they do not ban Jews, there are a number of reports that Saudi authorities make it extremely difficult. A 2012 U.S. Department of State publication advises that in Saudi death/injury judgements, Jews and Christians are only entitled to amounts 50% of what a Muslim would receive. The report further states:
Textbooks for grades 10, 11, and 12 – slated for review and reform in 2013 – retained inflammatory and anti-Semitic material. For example, these textbooks stated that apostates from Islam should be killed if they do not repent within three days of being warned, and described Islamic minorities and Christians as heretics. Descriptions of Jews and Christians as apes and swine remained. These textbooks also stated that treachery is a permanent characteristic of non-Muslims, especially Jews, propagated conspiracy theories that international organizations such as Masons support Zionism, and presented historical forgeries, such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, as fact.
“Once they saw that she was a Christian [because of the cross hanging on her rear view mirror], they jumped on top of the car, to the point that the vehicle was no longer visible. The roof of the car collapsed in. When they realized that she was starting to die, they pulled her out of the car and started pounding on her and pulling her hair-to the point that portions of her hair and scalp came off…”
Muslim Brotherhood Slaughter Christian Woman
From: The Christian Post
By: Raymond Ibrahim, Op-Ed Contributor, March 31, 2014|9:18 am
On Friday, March 28, in Ain Shams, a suburb of Cairo, Muslim Brotherhood supporters attacked the Virgin Mary and Archangel Michael Coptic Orthodox Church, including by opening fire on it and setting parked cars aflame. Four people died.
One of the slain, a young Coptic woman, was savagely mauled and molested before being murdered-simply because her cross identified her as a Christian to the Brotherhood rioters.
According to an eyewitness who discussed the entire event on the Egyptian program, 90 Minutes, Mary Sameh George was parking by the church to deliver medicine to a sickly, elderly woman:
Once they saw that she was a Christian [because of the cross hanging on her rear view mirror], they jumped on top of the car, to the point that the vehicle was no longer visible. The roof of the car collapsed in. When they realized that she was starting to die, they pulled her out of the car and started pounding on her and pulling her hair-to the point that portions of her hair and scalp came off. They kept beating her, kicking her, stabbing her with any object or weapon they could find…. Throughout [her ordeal] she tried to protect her face, giving her back to the attackers, till one of them came and stabbed her right in the back, near the heart, finishing her off. Then another came and grabbed her by the hair, shaking her head, and with the other hand slit her throat. Another pulled her pants off, to the point that she was totally naked.
The eyewitness, as well as many others who have since appeared on videos, complained about Egyptian State Security and how it did not intervene-just like under Morsi, when St. Mark Cathedral was besieged, even as security stood by-how it knows exactly who the murderers are, and how one of Mary’s murderers, whom “everyone reported to Security,” was simply relaxing in his home, not even hiding.
Added the eyewitness: “Let me tell you, here in Ain Shams, we [Christians] know that every Friday is a day of death; that the day after Friday, Saturday, we’ll be carried to the morgue!”
COMMENT/ANALYSIS: The above protest also involve the killing of journalist Mayada Ashraf. Her death – struck by a bullet – made some headlines, presumably because blame was being placed on Egyptian government forces. Mary George’s brutal attack and subsequent death has been hardly mentioned. As Ibrahim points out in his article, reporting on savagery involving Islamists does not fit into the politically correct narrative.
An example of how the incident was typically reported can be found at:
“Too often in the aftermath of these tragedies, whether they occur in Boston or Karachi, I notice people rushing to defend the faith from judgment instead of acknowledging the victims. If a link is considered or even discovered, everyone from the Western media to Hollywood deems that person “Islamophobic” for linking Islam to terrorism.” – Ali A. Rizvi
The following is by Pakistani-Canadian writer, physician and musician Ali A. Rizvi. He offers a unique perspective linking the modern Islamic jihad to an ideology that influenced the policy of Muslim nations for centuries.
An Atheist Muslim’s Perspective on the ‘Root Causes’ of Islamist Jihadism and the Politics of Islamophobia
By Ali A. Rizvi, May 3, 2013
The ambassador answered us that [their right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.
The above passage is not a reference to a declaration by al Qaeda or some Iranian fatwa. They are the words of Thomas Jefferson, then the U.S. ambassador to France, reporting to Secretary of State John Jay a conversation he’d had with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, Tripoli’s envoy to London, in 1786 — more than two and a quarter centuries ago.
That is before al Qaeda and the Taliban, before the creation of Israel or the Arab-Israeli conflict, before Khomeini, before Saudi Arabia, before drones, before most Americans even knew what jihad or Islam was, and, most importantly, well before the United States had engaged in a single military incursion overseas or even had an established foreign policy.
At the time, thousands of American and European trade ships entering the Mediterranean had been targeted by pirates from the Muslim Barbary states (modern-day North Africa). More than a million Westerners had been kidnapped, imprisoned and enslaved. Tripoli was the nexus for these operations. Jefferson’s attempts to negotiate resulted in deadlock, and he was told simply that the kidnapping and enslavement of the infidels would continue, tersely articulated by Adja in the exchange paraphrased above.
Adja’s position wasn’t a random one-off. This conflict continued for years, seminally resulting in the Treaty of Tripoli, signed into law by President John Adams in 1797. Article 11 of the document, a direct product of the United States’ first-ever overseas conflict, contained these famous words, cementing America’s fundamental commitment to secularism:
As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext, arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
Yes, the establishment of secularism in America back in the 18th century was largely related to a conflict with Islamist jihadism.
So where did Abdul Rahman Adja’s bin Laden-esque words come from?
They couldn’t have been a response to American imperialism (the start of the conflict precedes the presidency of George Washington), U.S. foreign policy, globalization, AIPAC or Islamophobia. Yet his words are virtually identical to those spouted ad nauseum by jihadists today who justify their bellicosity as a reaction to these U.S.-centric factors, which were nonexistent in Adja’s time.
COMMENTS/ANALYSIS: The main point to note is that the anti-western jihad promoted by Islamists is not new nor a result of our current mid-east policies. As in past centuries, those that do not follow Islam are considered the enemies of Islam.
A secondary point is that politically correct secularism (i.e. Treaty of Tripoli, signed into law by President John Adams in 1797. Article 11) does not appease people who belong to a culture immersed in religious doctrine (i.e. sharia). If anything, they simply perceive it as a weakness.
Unfortunately, our political leaders pay little attention to the past. Most rely on a revisionist version of history that does not conflict with their idealistic view of the way things “should be. An excellent example of this, and relating to the above article, was President Obama’s remarks at a August 10, 2012 dinner regarding the description of Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an:
As I’ve noted before, Thomas Jefferson once held a sunset dinner here with an envoy from Tunisia — perhaps the first Iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago. And some of you, as you arrived tonight, may have seen our special display, courtesy of our friends at the Library of Congress — the Koran that belonged to Thomas Jefferson. And that’s a reminder, along with the generations of patriotic Muslims in America, that Islam — like so many faiths — is part of our national story.
Actually, the “reminder” is that Thomas Jefferson used the book to better understand the enemy he, and America, were fighting – Muslims along the Barbary coast.

We’re making new friends on the internet !
During a review of recent news stories, this article from MLive.com came to our attention:
Written by Jay Scott Smith, it contains only a few words regarding the bombing, some comments by Osama Siblani and then becomes a PR piece for the Muslim American Society. It closes with an interview of Dawud Walid, the Executive Director for the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) who stated:
“Muslims are the greatest victims of violence in the world …”
As reported, CAIR’s response in the wake of the Boston bombing was easily predicted – take the focus away from the actual attack and paint Muslims as victims. Mr. Smith’s article promoted this agenda and we highlighted it with this tweet:
Mr. Smith responded with:
Guess he told us!

The recently foiled Canadian train terror attack is being heralded as the shining example of how law enforcement working with the Muslim community makes us all safer. This was even mentioned in the article by Fareed Zakaria we highlighted.
At what price is this level of cooperation? The citizens of Toronto are finding out …
Author/commentator/blogger Pamela Geller, was scheduled to speak at a Thornhill, Ont., synagogue. The host for the event is Rabbi Mendel Kaplan of the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue, who also serves as a force chaplin with the York Regional Police. These two factors led to the following, as reported on May 1st, 2013 by Sun News:
TORONTO — York Regional Police threatened to remove a rabbi as one of the force’s chaplains if he hosted a controversial anti-Islamist speaker at his Thornhill, Ont., synagogue.
Insp. Ricky Veerappan of the force’s diversity, equity and inclusion bureau, confirmed he and officers from the force’s hate crimes unit met with Rabbi Mendel Kaplan of the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue on Tuesday.
They expressed concern about an upcoming talk to be given by Pamela Geller, a vocal critic of radical Islam. She’s protested past plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City, and has posted anti-jihad messages in that city’s subway system.
Subsequent to his meeting with police, Kaplan cancelled Geller’s May 13 talk, which was sponsored by the Jewish Defence League (JDL) — a hard-line advocacy group which had rented space in Kaplan’s synagogue for the event.
“I think the police are turning a blind eye to who they should be keeping an eye on,” said the JDL’s Meir Weinstein, referring to radical Islamists. Weinstein said another location will be chosen for Geller’s appearance.
Veerappan said he told Kaplan that Geller’s speech “would not be endorsed by York Regional Police” and that the rabbi’s role as a force chaplain would be thrown into question if he were to allow the event.
“If he did (host Geller), then we’d have to reassess our relationship with (Kaplan),” Veerappan said. “We serve the needs of the entire community. Some of the stuff that Ms. Geller speaks about runs contrary to the values of York Regional Police and the work we do in engaging our communities.”
Veerappan said a member of York’s Muslim community, whom he wouldn’t identify, brought Geller’s scheduled talk to the attention of police.
IMPORTANT NOTE: in March 2013, the University of Toronto hosted Tariq Ramadan who had been denied entry into the U.S. because of his terrorist ties. The Muslim chaplin for the university is Imam Abdul Hai Patel – who also serves with Rabbi Kaplan as a York Regional Police chaplin. Despite Ramadan’s history, there are no known reports of the York Regional Police approaching Iman Patel over reassessing the relationship with him
This is not the first time police in Toronto have used their authority to intimidate on behalf of area Muslim interests.
In 2007, then Hamilton Spectator columnist Tahir Gora reported a death threat posted on his Facebook page, listing him as an enemy of Islam and he should be put to death. He was “visited two days later by a pair of Muslim officers who tried to talk him out of filing a complaint against a fellow Muslim.”
In 2011, Canadian author Tarek Fatah wrote of his frustration over how the police in Toronto handled death threats he received. He wrote:
I contacted Toronto police. Within hours, two uniformed policemen from 51 Division came to interview me in hospital. However, barely one minute later, we were interrupted. Two men entered the room and told everybody else to leave. They did not identify themselves, but five minutes into what amounted to a two-hour interrogation, I realized they were police intelligence officers. One of them, I recognized by reputation – a Muslim officer who had shut down a previous investigation into a death threat against me in 2008, and another one against a partner in liberal Islam, Tahir Gora.
He continues …
The Toronto police, in their wish to promote an image of diversity and outreach, have dedicated themselves to serving and protecting the the radical Islamist elements within our city.
Fatah’s last comment above is disturbing, but highlights the continuing theme when dealing with Islamist tactics against western society/institutions. Documentation from the Muslim Brotherhood establishes the method of destroying from within to achieve the their goals:
“The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Proecess” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated… “ – Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America
By using the west’s constant preoccupation with political correctness, cultural jihadists use a readily adaptable formula to establish themselves with positions of influence to obtain the goal.
The basic steps are:
- Identify/create a threat based on “radical” elements of the Islamic community
- Present the argument that “only Muslims can understand Muslims”
- Offer to assist officials by being appointed to advisory positions, review boards, etc. This may include recommending “sympathetic” employees promoted/assigned to influential positions.
- Threaten that “bad things will happen” if suggestions and input is ignored.
This is the same formula used by any protection racket run by a criminal enterprise*.
The citizens of Toronto are victims of extortion. It appears their local government has chosen to capitulate to Islamic pressure and the area police have now taken on the role of “mob enforcer”.
