CAIR Does Some Serious Bullying
Thanks to CAIR, Michigan State University (the same place where those thugs prevented Congressman Tom Tancredo from speaking) has bowed to pressure from CAIR and their own Muslim Student Union.
After professor Indreck Wichman sent an email to Muslim students calling them ?dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems,? CAIR got involved. The school will now be offering diversity training. (Hat tip: Pamela of Atlas Shrugs)
CAIR is also going after writer/author Dennis Prager for his opposition to Keith Ellison taking his oath of office using a Koran. Prager wrote the following:
Of course, Ellison’s defenders argue that Ellison is merely being honest; since he believes in the Koran and not in the Bible, he should be allowed, even encouraged, to put his hand on the book he believes in. But for all of American history, Jews elected to public office have taken their oath on the Bible, even though they do not believe in the New Testament, and the many secular elected officials have not believed in the Old Testament either. Yet those secular officials did not demand to take their oaths of office on, say, the collected works of Voltaire or on a volume of New York Times editorials, writings far more significant to some liberal members of Congress than the Bible. Nor has one Mormon official demanded to put his hand on the Book of Mormon. And it is hard to imagine a scientologist being allowed to take his oath of office on a copy of “Dianetics” by L. Ron Hubbard.
So why are we allowing Keith Ellison to do what no other member of Congress has ever done — choose his own most revered book for his oath?
Anyway, now CAIR wants Prager to be removed from the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.
“No one who holds such bigoted, intolerant and divisive views should be in a policy-making position at a taxpayer-funded institution that seeks to educate Americans about the destructive impact hatred has had, and continues to have, on every society,” CAIR’s executive director, Nihad Awad, wrote in a letter to the council’s chairman, Fred Zeidman.
What about the destructive impact of hatred in Muslim countries, where Christians are either killed, harmed or just banned from practicing their religion? And what about the destructiveness of the hatred of the Hamas and Hezbo terrorists, to whom CAIR has funneled money? (Hat tip: Little Green Footballs)
