CAIR Tips Hand; Sues OK Over Anti-Sharia Law

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which likes to fashion itself as a kind of Muslim ACLU, is suing over Oklahoma's new anti-Sharia law. This hit my inbox Wednesday:


CAIR to Announce Lawsuit Challenging Okla. Anti-Islam Amendment

(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, 11/3/2010) -- On Thursday, November 4, the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) will hold a news conference with religious and civil rights leaders in the State Capitol Building to announce the filing of a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of an anti-Islam ballot measure (State Question 755) passed in yesterday's election. The measure amends the state constitution to forbid judges from considering Islamic law or international law when making a ruling.

Or...as Robert Spencer's Jihadwatch put it, "Oklahoma bans stonings, amputations for theft, death for apostates, Muslims cry 'Islamophobia.'"

CAIR is like the ACLU that it claims to emulate, at least in some ways. Both groups push radical agendas while posturing as protectors of the persecuted. CAIR is a master at tapping into and manipulating the guilty multiculturalism that infects a lot of newsrooms and government agencies in order to get the coverage or policy changes it seeks.

But CAIR has also earned a sinister reputation that is harder and harder to outrun. These very serious allegations against CAIR were successfully defended in a libel trial that I covered. CAIR was also an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror trial. And when an undercover intern got a job at CAIR headquarters, the result was the book "Muslim Mafia," which featured...

"-New evidence that CAIR was launched to support the Hamas terrorist group, and has transferred tens of thousands of dollars to a group recently convicted as Hamas' top fundraising arm in the U.S.

-Internal documents showing CAIR, despite claims of cooperating with law enforcement, actively works behind the scenes to mislead and deceive the FBI on behalf of terrorism suspects and has even cultivated Muslim moles inside law enforcement who have tipped off FBI terror targets;

- CAIR is more closely tied to al-Qaeda than previously reported;

- CAIR and its sister fronts are funded by foreign Muslim Brotherhood sources;

- CAIR leaders share the Muslim Brotherhood's ultimate goal to replace the U.S Consitution with Sharia law."

The punchline: CAIR didn't sue the authors for libel (which would be expected if the book's allegations were false).Instead, CAIR sued over breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, trespass, and violation of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.

That says a lot.

Defending Sharia law in Oklahoma would seem to tip CAIR's hand. It will be seen as revealing CAIR's real agenda. And it will strengthen the view of CAIR as a front for radical Islam.

Yes the muslims (arabs mostly) get TONS of $$$$$$$ from the USA! (remember that pesky OPEC and the traitors who help keep the alternative energies down? ) The BANKRUPTCY of AMERICA : Its really a nasty NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE. The best way to fight it and the muslim takeover is to force congress to pass laws requiring 1% use of electric cars in USA.. That would force oil $ down, reducing muslim income, reducing funding for CAIR. (you can thank T. BOONE PICKENS and like ILK for the huge prices on energy as they made an underhanded deal with GM in 1999 to scrap, crush, chip into little pieces the fantastic EV1 ELECTRIC Car that users gave rave reviews to). Sad statement about our societies lack of will power to choose at peaceful path when it would have been so easy to simply use electrics.. and get out of the middle east! ) Is it christian to avoid wars? YES !! Christ is KING OF PEACE not war! Now because christians have allowed themelves to be associated with WAR, they will b

Islam has been able to make so much headway in Europe and America because we have allowed our faith to decline. Ultimately our battle is a spiritual one and to win, we need to go back to our roots. Let the remaining committed Christians get on our knees in repentance for our backsliding and loss of faith and pray for a revival of faith and a return to the Bible. Let us pray that when Jesus returns their WILL be faith on earth.
