The most dangerous organization in America

The most dangerous organization in America is not, surprisingly, the ACLU, the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, the Republican Party, or the Democratic Party (though I despise them all). This dubious honor belongs to CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. This group's modus operandi is to try to ruin anyone who criticizes any aspect of Islam, or anyone who points out that Islamic fundamentalists are responsible for the vast majority of the world's terrorism. They recently got a popular talk show host who harshly criticized Islam fired. (I know, my leftist friends, it was a white guy in Oklahoma City, there's exceptions to every rule).

I signed up on CAIR's e-mail list, and they are quite open about their contempt for the First Amendment. Arsalan T. Iftikhar, the national legal director for CAIR, said it was time for everyday Muslims to "defend the image and reputation of the community and Islam in general." "I am here to teach you how the American Muslim community can legally empower itself to protect itself in the American courts," he said, as he went into the nuances of the limits of the First Amendment (emphasis added). Personally, I agree. Really. I hate how that pesky Bill of Rights stands in the way of a "civil rights" group suppressing speech it doesn't like.

Now, Mr. Iftikhar is upset again. It seems (horror of horrors) that agents of the New Jersey Office of Counter-Terrorism have been accused of targeting suspects that were Muslim. Iftikhar, apparently a law enforcement expert in his spare time when he's not busy circumventing the First Amendment, went on to say "Profiling is never an effective law enforcement technique." He didn't site any evidence or expert testimony for that opinion, not surprisingly.

Let's look at this logically. If the vast majority of terrorist activities are done by one group, which they are, it would be absolutely insane not to watch members of that group more carefully. If a few innocent Muslims are harassed,that is regrettable, but unfortunately necessary. The next attack on America could make a 9-11 look like a firecracker. Unfortunately, we have to deal with groups like the ACLU and CAIR more concerned with sensitivity and political correctness than stopping terrorism. For the good of the nation and of the world, American citizens must awaken to the danger of CAIR.

Last comment is phony.

CAIR is the worst organization. . . something is so pathetic about them, they think they are NAACP in the 60s, when they are totally unwanted by the entire nation
