CAIR and other Islamic organizations held a press conference yesterday in front of the newly purchased Park51building to extend their help to the GZM-dubbed project. Opponents have been called bigots for opposing the proposed Islamic center at the site where landing gear projectiled threw the roof from one of the planes used as weapons of mass destruction by Islamic extremists on 9/11/01. The second attack on the WTC by such extremists destroyed the well-known landmarks.
Four days before the attack, CAIR and other Islamic organizations (Library of Congress archive) blasted the U.S. government after a major raid on a key Islamic Internet company called Infocom. CAIR and others played the victim game big time and claimed it was an "anti-Muslim witch hunt promoted by the pro-Israel lobby in America". BBC and others reported the raid resulted in a temporary shutdown of websites it hosted for about 500 Islamic customers, including that run by Al-Jazeera television and the newspaper Al-Sharq, both based in the Gulf state of Qatar.
Its a strange and creepy coincident this anti-American Islamic press conference took place just four days before 9/11/01.
At Monday's press conference, CAIR's director, Nihad Awad, said this project wasn't a case but a "cause" and its all a misunderstand and misinformation if you are against it. To handle this they called for a week of "dialogue" next month to help make it all go away. A cause?

The years between these two press conference are filled with disturbing rhetoric and actions by CAIR. They are an outgrowth of the Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure in this country, as identified by the FBI. In Palestine, the MB branch started Hamas which wants to destroy Israel for ISLAM (read it in their charter). The Muslim Brotherhood is anti-American and pro-Hamas. At most every opportunity CAIR tries to impede the FBI in doing their job to keep us safe from another Islamic-motivated terror attack. Whenever CAIR is confronted about their history, they whine its bigotry aimed at ALL Muslims, which is dishonest.
I urge every American to become better educated about Islamism (Islamic activism to gain power for Islam) which is far different than the secular and the quiet private practice of one's own religion. This way if you decide to attend one of their so-called Islamic whitewashing "National Week For Dialogue" events you know exactly what kinds of questions to ask. Do not let them off the hook when they try to avoid the question - keep drilling down and repeating the specific question when they try to change to subject. One way to learn is to review my many pages on CAIR and take some time to study them and other like groups.
Did I mention CAIR is bestowing Helen Thomas, the ex-White House correspondent whose anti-Israel comment led to her downfall and disgrace a lifetime achievement award? So, it all fits, doesn't it?
They and their leftist partners can have all the dialogue and outreach they want but it won't hide the goals of Islamists to push Islam into stronger more powerful positions at all levels of local, state and federal government and other entities as they try to convert as many of us to Islam to help change our views, our policies and our country with their Islamic activism.
"...Since their founding in 1994, CAIR has sued and/or attacked with consequence such media outlets as: The Washington Times, The Los Angeles Times, The National Post, National Review, Anti-CAIR, various talk radio hosts, and college newspapers. Recently, even The Daily Caller has found itself caught in CAIR’s crosshairs..."
