A House Democrat has arranged for a conference room in the Capitol building to be used tomorrow by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim advocacy group criticized for its persistent refusal to disavow terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.
And they are giving space in OUR Capitol building to hold their anti American meeting?
Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., New Jersey Democrat, reserved the basement conference room for CAIR’s panel discussion Tuesday titled “Global Attitudes on Islam-West Relations: U.S. Policy Implications.”
“We just see it as a simple room request,” Pascrell spokesman Caley Gray said. “We did receive a room request and evaluated it and approved it.”
Would they also approve a meeting of a Right to Life group? I seriously doubt it.
He said the forum “opens up an important dialogue about global public opinion concerning the United States.”
I’m getting real sick of those PC folks being more worried about what the “global public opinion” is, than what we, THE PEOPLE, think of them.
However, CAIR officials have been charged with — and some convicted of — offenses related to the support of terrorism, including CAIR fundraiser Rabih Haddad, founding board member Ghassan Elashi and former CAIR civil rights coordinator Randall Royer.
Some of the Dems dhimmitude is becoming more blatant.
Prominent lawmakers, watchdog organizations and law-enforcement authorities insist CAIR has terrorist ties, despite the group’s endorsement by Republican and Democratic leaders, including President Bush and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat. “We know [CAIR] has ties to terrorism,” said Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat and vice chairman of the party’s Senate conference. He also criticized the group for having “intimate links with Hamas.”
Nothing like helping “destroy from within”. Thanks bunch.
