CAIR: Defending the Right to Be Anti-Semitic

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is openly advocating for the government’s right to be anti-Semitic. Here’s how:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued an “action alert” to voice its opposition to the newly proposed “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2019” in Congress.

The act directs Department of Education to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism, which has been officially adopted by the U.S. and 31 other nations, including the UK, Germany and other European nations.

The definition addresses traditional and current forms of anti-Semitism, specifically labeling as anti-Semitism anything that “[applies] double standards by requiring of [Israel] a behavior not expected or demanded of by any other democratic nation [in the world].”

Accordingly, the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement is by definition anti-Semitic. For example, there are at least 100 land disputes across the globe that are not subject to “BDS” movements.

CAIR’s leaders are heavily invested in supporting the BDS movement, particularly across college campuses in the U.S. The BDS movement aims to strangle the Jewish state economically while at the same time calls for the flooding of Palestinians into Israel to destroy the Jewish character of the state.

While the BDS movement purports to be about Palestinian rights, voices in support of BDS have been deafeningly silent about the horrific abuse of Palestinians who moved decades ago to Jordan, Syria and Lebanon during the Arab states’ war with Israel in 1948.

On a state level, CAIR has been busy bringing law suits against individual states who have passed anti-BDS legislation.

In their current lawsuits against the state of Texas and Arkansas, CAIR has brought the new argument that anti-BDS legislation infringes on their First Amendment right to free speech, essentially saying that legislation against anti-Semitism infringes on their right to be anti-Semites.

However, while it is every individual’s right in the U.S. to hold and express opinions no matter how despicable they are (as long they do not lead to immediate violence), it is not the Constitutional right of the government to act in a way that discriminates based on religion, as specified by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

CAIR is worried that if the U.S. Department of Education adopts this accepted definition of anti-Semitism, it will crimp their style along with other Islamists on college campuses (among other areas of influence) to incite hatred of Israel. As CAIR says, “[The legislation] would dangerously politicize anti-Semitism by equating it with legitimate criticism of Israeli policy.”

This is the canard that CAIR and other Islamists consistently pull out when confronted with their own anti-Semitic statements. For example, after tweeting classic anti-Semitic tropes (that rich Jews control politicians with their money; that Jews have dual loyalty to the U.S. and Israel), newly elected Congresswoman Ilhan Omar lashed out her detractors, claiming that they were trying to prevent her (and other like her) from have a legitimate discussion about America’s policy  toward Israel.

CAIR is listed by the U.S. government among “individuals/entities who are/were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” The Palestine Committee was a secret body set up to advance the Brotherhood/Hamas agenda in the U.S.

In 1993, the committee organized a secret meeting in Philadelphia that was wiretapped by the FBI where participants, including CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad, discussed how to support the terror group Hamas. The committee decided there was a need to create a new, “neutral” entity for influencing U.S. policy and opinion since “it is known who we are.”

Awad co-founded CAIR the next year. It has since been designated (in 2014) as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates along with a host of other Muslim Brotherhood entities.

In 2007, the U.S. government labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing Hamas, which the U.S. designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in 1997. The Holy Land trial was the largest case of terror financing in the history of the U.S.

VIDEO: The United Nations is ABSOLUTELY Anti-Semitic! The Golan Belongs to Israel!

Outside of the U.S., countries call for Israel to leave the Golan, and give it back to Syria, the most ruthless regime on Earth! Arab countries not recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights is understandable, what’s the U.N.’s excuse?

The United Nations is so Anti-Israel, it’s mission is obvious!

An article published December 2017 in The Townhall describes how bad it is.  Written by Dr. Robert Jeffress, a pastor of an 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas and an adjunct professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, titled:

Let’s Be Honest: The United Nations Is Anti-Semitic

Dr. Jeffress gives us many examples how & why.  Here are excerpts from the article:

“It is clear that the organization — which receives nearly a quarter of its budget from the United States alone (far more than any other country) — is increasingly a safe place for pure anti-Semitism to grow. Its opposition to Israel has gone far beyond political opposition; it is a racist organization.”

“Speaking of human rights, the United Nations’ Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) now includes the nations of Venezuela, Cuba, and the Philippines—all nations that are notorious for their violations of human rights. They also currently placed Syria, a virtual protectorate of Iran, on a committee focused on “decolonization,” and they once named Zimbabwe’s brutal former dictator, Robert Mugabe, a “goodwill ambassador” for the World Health Organization (WHO).”

House Dems Cave In to Islamist Lobby

Democratic members of the House have missed an opportunity to stand tall against bigotry and its public perpetrator – anti-Semitism and Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Beginning with the correct intention to swiftly pass a resolution against Omar’s recent spewing of vile anti-Semitic tropes, they have now stalled – and instead shown their true colors. Resolution 2.0 will now be watered down. It will not call out Omar by name and most likely contain condemnations of anti-Muslim sentiment, among other possible modern-day crimes.

The new resolution will be proposed at some undisclosed time in the future, thus rendering virtually meaningless (if it even happens). If our politically correct world won’t allow a condemnation of the oldest bigotry in the book as a stand alone, then whatever does end up being passed will be disingenuous.)

As President Trump rightly pointed out:

The stall on the resolution was just the opening the Islamist front in America needed to jump into the fray, distorting the conversation and making it all about Islamophobia.

(As if there is some balance – or a push-pull between Judaism and Islam. Yet for Islamists there is.)

No matter what Omar’s real words were (you can read those here and here), Islamists and their enablers are now busy reframing Congress’ now-failed condemnation of Omar.

It is now “anti-Muslim sentiment that is driving the attacks on her.”

Never to miss an opportunity to bring in as many victim groups as possible to lap up the sympathy, sharia-apologist Linda Sarsour stated about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (perceived to be one of the driving forces behind the condemnation), “Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset – no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”

Nihad Awad, founder and executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)whines about Israel and the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC having “undue influence in our Congress and on our foreign policy,” playing the victim card again.

(Ironically, if Israel and AIPAC had that kind of influence, you would think it wouldn’t be so difficult to get a resolution passed against anti-Semitism.)

Notably, Awad’s organization, CAIR, is the same organization that allegedly devised a “thinly disguised money-laundering scheme” to hide millions of dollars of donations from foreign entities.

Those entities most likely included Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who themselves have spent billions of dollars on congressional lobbying and investments in America’s top academic institutions.

Last time I checked, lobbying was legal in America, thus making it acceptable. Yet in the words of founding father George Washington, writing to the first Jewish congregation in the New World, “happily the Government of the United States gives to bigotry no sanction.”

Unfortunately, the Democrats in the House have missed an opportunity to prove that to be true.
