Not only does the pro-Sharia Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), continue to whine about the four GOP members that have targeted them, they also have a sold out house for tonight's hate fest.
Here is what one of tonight's speakers had stated in the past.
In September 1991 Wahhaj stated the following:,
"…And [Allah] declared 'Whoever is at war with my friends, I declare war on them.' ... Your true friend is Allah, the messenger, and those who believe.... Hear what I'm telling you well. The Americans are not your friends ... The Canadians are not your friends ... The Europeans are not your friends. Your friend is Allah, the Messenger and those who believe. These people will never be satisfied with you until you follow their religion ..."
In a 1992 address to an audience of Muslims in New Jersey, Wahhaj expressed his desire to see Muslims seize control of the United States and replace its constitutional government with an Islamic caliphate. “If we were united and strong,” Wahhaj said, “we'd elect our own emir [leader] and give allegiance to him.... [T]ake my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”
CAIR Banquet Sold Out, Congressional Coalition Blasts Anti-Muslim Reps
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) announced today that its 15th annual banquet on October 24th
in Arlington, Va., is sold out. (The banquet registration site will close
tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern. No tickets will be sold at the door.)
At the dinner on Saturday, hundreds of Muslim community members and activists, interfaith leaders and diplomats from Muslim nations will hear addresses by Rev. Jesse Jackson, former Congressman Paul Findley, Imam Mahdi Bray of
MAS-Freedom, and Dr. Agha Saeed, chair of the American Muslim Taskforce on
Civil Rights and Elections (AMT). Muslim comedian Ahmed Ahmed will perform at
CAIR also announced that the Congressional Tri-Caucus, a coalition made up of
the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the
Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, released a statement blasting
far-right House members who recently promoted a Muslim-bashing book to
insinuate that Muslims in Congress are "spies."
The Congressional Tri-Caucus statement reads in part:
"These charges smack of an America of sixty years ago where lists of
'un-American' agitators were identified. We should be affirming the importance
of diversity and tolerance for all interns and staff who serve in Congress
without suspicion of being identified as 'spies.'
"The idea that we should investigate Muslim interns as spies is a blow to the
very principle of religious freedom that our founding fathers cherished so
dearly. If anything, we should be encouraging all Americans to engage in the
U.S. political process; to take part in, and to contribute to, the great
democratic experiment that is America.
"We all have experienced the sting of discrimination and we know that there
will be challenges ahead. But our message should be firm that the America we
believe in welcomes people of all backgrounds to the U.S. Congress."
