Razi Hashmi, is the director for the Oklahoma office of CAIR, a national Islamic organization that grew from the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas infrastructure in America. As such, this organization was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding trial where all defendants were found guilty of funneling millions to the terrorist group, Hamas.
Recently, Hashmi had the audacity to imply the majority of Oklahomans are against our government's support of Israel!.
You know putting words in our mouth:
"...Razi Hashmi, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Oklahoma Chapter, said in a telephone interview that there was a great turnout (link added by z) at the Peace Rally for Gaza last Monday. He said people from many backgrounds and religions came together to call on public officials to help stop Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip (z: controlled by Hamas).
Hashmi, an Edmond resident, said the U.S. government has not made it a secret that they support Israel. He said he thinks Oklahomans are concerned that taxpayers’ money is helping fund weapons for Israel, which are being used to attack the Gaza Strip.
“In order for there to be peace, there needs to be understanding on both sides,” he said. “If the U.S. takes a neutral stance, there will less division.”
...“We don’t want to have division in our faith communities,” Hashmi said. “There should be non-violence on both sides.”
Hashmi said they are not fighting for pro-Israeli or pro-Palestinian but pro-peace".
What to bet?
If there is any doubt what side Hashmi and those who protested, let this picture of the "peace really" he organized help:
"America should take immediate steps to end Israel’s"illegal and immoral” offensive against the Gaza Strip Hamas rulers, the executive director of the Oklahoma City chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Monday (1/5/09).
