CAIR Calls New Yorker Obama Cartoon ‘Inflammatory’

July 14, 2008

This was bound to happen sooner or later…


In a statement, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said:

“Unfortunately, the New Yorker’s front cover cartoon failed to achieve its stated goal of exposing and lampooning right-wing caricatures of the Obamas. These inflammatory images and spurious associations will only serve to reinforce the racism and anti-Muslim stereotypes that the magazine says it is out to challenge.”

Inflammatory? I’ll give them inflammatory!

Bam! Right between the eyes!
As documented by CAIR Watch
CAIR National website, September 17, 2001
CAIR exploited 9/11 to scoop up donations for Hamas.

World Trade Center in flames.

“Donate to NY/DC Emergency Relief Fund” is direct hyperlink to website of Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). HLF would soon be shut down by the United States government for raising millions of dollars for Hamas, in December of 2001.

The CAIR-Terror Connection – Front Page Mag

In September of 2001, just following the worst terrorist attack ever suffered in modern history, CAIR placed on its website, under a picture of the World Trade Center in flames, a plea for donations. It read, “Donate to the NY/DC Emergency Relief Fund.”

Yet, when people clicked on the link, it did not take them to any NY/DC Emergency Relief Fund. No, it took them straight to the website of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, an Islamic ‘charity’ that was soon to be shut down by the United States for “raising millions of dollars annually for HAMAS.”

The fact that CAIR was toying with the emotions of persons wanting to give money to a fund that CAIR disguised as one related to the 9/11 attacks is despicable…The fact that CAIR was asking people to donate to an organization that was raising millions for a terrorist organization that regularly sends suicide squads to murder innocent people is reprehensible.

Adding fuel to the flame…
Omar Ahmad – Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)

Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth…”

Ibrahim Hooper – Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future…”

Ihsan Bagby – CAIR

Ultimately, we can (Muslims) can never be full citizens of this country…because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country”

Nihad Awad – CAIR

“I am in support of the Hamas movement”

On U.S. terror financing investigations: “This is a war against Islam and Muslims.”
