CAIR: ‘Not Acceptable’ to Portray Jihadists As ‘Savage’ – Tell that to the 14-year old girl shot in the head for wanting to attend school!
It always angers me when I see blatant terrorist propaganda spewed on American airwaves and in the mainstream media – especially when the propagandists are treated as a legitimate voice and when they are continuing to use our own laws against us.
My position is relatively clear …
CAIR: ‘Not Acceptable’ to Portray Jihadists As ‘Savage’
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is launching an ad campaign to counter billboards posted in the D.C. metro system that urge the defeat of jihad and support for Israel. CAIR claims the anti-jihad advertisements, sponsored by political activist Pamela Geller, inspire “hate.” They are designed to “provoke, stigmatize and demonize” Muslims, CAIR told CNSNews.com.
One of the Geller ad reads: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."
CNSNews.com asked CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper to explain how the ad is hate speech. “Can you just elaborate more on how the ad is hate speech? It is directed against Jihad, right? So is that something you’re also against?”
“If you look at Pam Geller’s history, everything she’s done over her entire career is designed to incite, designed to provoke, designed to stigmatize Muslims and demonize Islam,” Hooper said. “And this is the same thing.” “It’s not so much the reference to jihad--that’s a debatable point--but it’s the reference to savages,” he added. “When you paint anyone on another side of the issue as a savage, that’s just not acceptable.”
“Even those that use violence for radical Islamic extremism?” CNSNews.com asked. “That’s her argument,” Hooper said. “We don’t accept her argument.”
They, being Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR, do not accept her argument that Jihadists are savages marks them as blind, ignorant or both. How the hell does he explain a religion that allows and uses barbaric torture, rape and mutilation – not to mention honor killings – as anything less than savage and barbaric? Jihad is the way of the sword – not peace, not tolerance for other viewpoints – death or subjugation.
Our constitution is not a suicide pact – letting our enemies use our laws to defeat us from within. The idea – promoted by the Obama Administration and other liberals – that moral equivalency and multi-culturalism is an excuse for bad behavior will not fly. We do not have to accept their culture as moral, just or even as deserving to be preserved.
Without Israel, these savages would simply attack each other – as they have done for centuries – over who is the rightful heir to the religion’s top mantle.
The big lie …
In response to Geller’s ads, which are now posted in four locations in the D.C. metro system, CAIR will run three billboards featuring a Koran verse that states, “Show forgiveness, speak for justice and avoid the ignorant.”
Show me the justification for shooting an innocent 14-year old girl in the head for simply wanting an education – and then claiming religious and moral justification because Allah made man superior over women. Jihadists are as unthinking and uncaring as cockroaches – so why should they be allowed to infest your house.
Hooper said the translated meaning of the word ignorant in the verse is “willfully ignorant.” Geller says her ad calls for a moral outcry against jihad, or “holy war.” “The message is clear. Any war on innocent civilians is savage,” Geller told Israel National News. “The war on Israel is a war on innocent civilians.”
Geller said she originally planned for the anti-jihad campaign to run last year, in response to an anti-Israel campaign that was posted in the New York City subway system at that time. “There was no controversy or opposition to those anti-Semitic ads,” Geller said. “Our ad campaign was hung up by legal battles. Anti-Jewish ads are okay; anti-jihad ads are ‘offensive.’”
‘Hate speech not acceptable in America’
Naeem Baig, vice president for public affairs of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) which is joining CAIR’s campaign, said “hate speech” is not acceptable in America. “As Americans, we understand the importance of the right of free speech and for freedom of expression,” he said. “American Muslims value this right on behalf of every American citizen and we never shy away from ever defending this right. We also feel that this right to free speech should be seen as a great responsibility.” “Freedom of expression and willful provocation will have different outcomes,” Baig said. “And such is the case of free speech and hate speech.”
“The right to freedom of expression should not be an opportunity to spread hate and pass insults on sacred religions and religious icons,” he added. “American society is mature enough to recognize that hate speech is not acceptable.” Source: CAIR: ‘Not Acceptable’ to Portray Jihadists As ‘Savage’ | CNSNews.com
Here I must call bullshit!
See how cleverly they subvert free speech. They start by claiming free speech is a good thing which they honor and uphold – but go on to define free speech on their own terms. Their concept of free speech is any speech devoid of criticizing their malignant and metastasizing religion which demands total obedience to a theocracy – with no free speech, no freedom of religion and no human rights.The idea that free speech is not an opportunity to say what you want, when you want to, and where you want to – is wrong. Free means free. Something that you do not often find in Muslim countries.
The truth is the American Muslims have more freedom and equality here in the United States than they would have in any other Muslim country. And CAIR and the other jihadists are trying to use our own laws to subvert our nation from within.
Stand up and point out that the emperor has no clothes and that jihadists are savages.
