CAIR: Broward GOP Treats Muslims Worse Than Other Republicans Do

allen-west-improbable-hands.jpg
Thanks to West, South Florida Republicans have a bad rap.
U.S. Rep. Allen West has already tried to end federal funding for National Public Radio. But if he needed another reason to hate NPR, yesterday's "All Things Considered" segment should do the trick. 

The story explored West's view of Islam as a "totalitarian, theocratic, political ideology" and his ongoing rhetorical battle with Nezar Hamze, executive director of the South Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. No news there -- the West/Hamze controversy has already been well-documented on the Pulp. But NPR took the story one step further, suggesting that Broward Republicans were more anti-Muslim than their GOP comrades in other states.
Last month, Hamze attempted to join the Broward Republican Executive Committee and was soundly rejected by a "pit of discrimination." 

Yet committee Chairman Richard DeNapoli told NPR:  "I really don't think this had anything to do with religion. It's just that this was a widely known circumstance where he had made statements against Allen West, and the members reacted to that." 

Strike one. Broward Republicans will defend West to the end, even if it makes them look like bigots on national radio. But wait, there's more! 

"CAIR officials say they have good relations with other Republicans but that in South Florida at least, the Republican Party and their Tea Party supporters have made Muslims feel unwelcome," NPR reporter Greg Allen said.

Ouch. This means South Florida -- a predominantly Democratic area -- is allegedly more prejudiced against Muslims than other Republican strongholds. 

Congratulations, Broward. You are the new Strom Thurmond.

To say that because there is a problem with extremist Islamists we can brand all Islamists as terrorists is bigotry, not logic. The same could be said for Christianity when it burned so called witches. There fore all christians were murderders.

West is a religious christian bigot who is using that to attract like minded folks to get and stay elected.  For someone who served in the military, he acts like a little bully on the playground.  When Debbie WS called him out on his vote for the Ryan Bill and stated the truth, he pouted like a little baby and called her the most vile contmpous etc.

He depends on the tea party for support.  The very party that has at its core racist beliefs and foundings similar to the republican Southern Strategy of the 50s.

Besides raising money and his voice, what has he actually accomplished?

To reply to what Nanook has said (for some reason, I can't post to his thread) sadly, the problem is that historically, it's Muslims who've done a fantastic job of murdering other Muslims. They hardly need any help from us. A case in point: Pakistan, a nation created expressly for Muslims, and where the hatreds have been so great that the country simply couldn't hold together (in essence, the Punjabis despised the Bengalis). Now, of course, Pakistan is a nation convulsed by such great Muslim-on-Muslim violence that it's far safer to be a Muslim in America.than Karachi, Pindi, Peshawar or Lahore. There, your mosque might get bombed or shot up during Friday prayers by a Muslim who doesn't like your way of being a Muslim. It's so sad. I'm aware that U.S. policy is far from blameless, but it's time for Muslims to grow up and realize the biggest cause of problems in the Muslim world is the doings of Muslims themselves, and not Zionists or other some other foreign kafirs.Cheers.

This bs is going on for too long.

Sharia for dummies :1. Apostates are beheaded (or hanged, take your pick)2. Non-Muslims should pay a humiliating tax (called Jizya) (or they can convert or die, wow)3. 4 adult male witnesses required for a rape prosecution, all other evidence is null and void. If they aren't there, then the woman gets stoned to death for adultery. Which brings the next point.4. Stoning to death for adultery.5. All conceivable gender inequality like woman's testimony is half of a man's in court and the general precept that women are retarded.

CAIR supports and is advocating this. It is incumbent on every Muslim to strive for the establishment of Sharia. No other rule of law is accepted or recognized. This is a core tenet of Islam.

CAIR is a threat to American values and freedoms, by their constant demand for special treatment and "religious sensitivity" that no other religion asks for. They do threaten American values when they call for banning free speech and blasphemy. They do threaten American values when they call for Sharia which calls for violence and rejection of any non-theocratic Islamic government. In short, they threaten American values and freedoms because Islam does not recognize American values and freedoms.

And as usual they will usually say that Islam is peaceBefore the bs about how peaceful and just Sharia is, look at Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Yemen and so on. All are linked only by Islamic faith. And all implement Sharia and all are bloody brutal.How are outfits like CAIR saying they represent true Islam and the rest of the world got it wrong? Actions speak louder than words.

West defends the honor of America. He is a true patriot. He has every right to call out the traitors of America. The allegiance of every Muslim is the Muslim ummah, NOT America. If they're so proud and loyal, let them support the US troops once in a while. Let CAIR disengage from Hamas. Let them support Israel or condemn Saudi Arabia or Iran or Indonesia, which obviously they will never do.

And before CAIR plays the victim again, let them answer these :1. Killing apostates OK?2. Beating wives and stoning for adultery OK?3. Polygamy OK?4. Jihad against non-Muslims to spread Islam OK?5. 4 male witnesses required for rape OK?6. Slavery OK?7. Sharia OK?8. Child marriage (as young as 6 years old) OK?9. Death for blasphemy OK?10. Violent jihad OK?* All sanctioned in Quran and Hadiths

But they won't. They will either avoid these issues, or say the usual "this is only in Islamic country not USA", but confirming that they agree with it in principle and that Islam stands for this.

Or they will in the impossible event say they are against these, let them put it up on the CAIR website and distribute flyers and publicly speak out against these proactively. Let them prove that America is what matters to them more than anything, more than Islam.

Till then, they should quit the whining and shut the hell up.

As soon as Muslims drop the requirement to forcibly convert infidels, marry four wives, and execute people who convert from Islam, that will be the day when I pay any attention to whatever line of crap CAIR is spouting.  Until then I give more respect to the opinions of the KKK.

It looks like you are watching FOX on regular basis. The words "unindicted co-conspirator" sounds familiar. Yes, you may be little behind to smell your own shit??

Ali Baba
Ali Baba

I may be a little behind in tracking the news on the Islamic extremist front, but wasn't CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in at least one terrorism financing scheme uncovered by the U.S. government? I also seem to recall reading that the FBI has ceased having anything to do with them. Is that no longer the case? Without going to the extremes that Rep. West does, can we stupulate that there is a very real problem in the world with armed Islamic extremism and terror, and that some Muslim organizations, while professing to love peace and tolerance, use that deceitful and hypocritical pose to further the terrorists' unsavory ends?

Ali Baba
Ali Baba

To be perfectly clear, I'm not here to support Rep. West. I'm hear to say I believe the evidence shows CAIR supports and even finances Islamic terrorism and extremism when it thinks it can get away with it. I base my conclusion on what I've read about CAIR's actions and its leadership, and not on what West has said or believes.

"can we stupulate that there is a very real problem in the world with armed Islamic extremism and terror,"_______________________________________________________________________

Can we also stipulate that there is a worldwide propaganda network of zio-fascists who spread falsehoods throughout the western world in order to achieve their goal of global hegemony?

And that a certain segment of the American population are willing to believe this propaganda without doing any independent factchecking?

If we can stipulate to those two items as well, I'll begin to draft an agreement.

there was almost exactly as much evidence to call them an "un-indicted co conspirator" as there was used to put japanese americans in camps during WWII. the one-trick pony smear job about CAIR makes the campaign to destroy ACORN look positively well researched and validated. we're spending ourselves to death trying to bust as many terrorists as possible whether they are or not so if there was anything the FBI could've come up with they would've.

And I'm here to say that a worldwide movement of zealots--many of whom are in positions of power within our own gov't--are spreading falsehoods about CAIR.

Because it supports their geopolitical goals.

And I am no fan of radical Islam or any whackadoo interpretation of any ancient scriptures. And I agree that in general, islamic societies are backwards when it comes to many issues, especialy involving women.

But all of this nonsense about caliphates and sharia law coming to America is pure propaganda and paranoia peddled by even more extreme zealots.

There are over one billion Muslims. The radicals who commit acts of violence represent a tiny percentage of that billion. The overwhelming majority of Muslims do not interpret the Koran literally.

And the ones that do are no different than the orthodox knuckle draggers who interpret the Talmud literally.

And Zionism is judaism's worst enemy. Not all zionists are Jewish; many are evangelical Christians.

There are Jewish organizations in Israel who are anti- Zionist. Just yesterday, 100,000 Jews were in the street in Israel protesting the same issues as OWS. Even they are sick of the zio- fascists who run their nation; warmongers whose policies create economic inequality.

This just in: gunman fires on U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo. According to the AP, he doesn't appear to have been Japanese, so I think we can lose that false analogy:

The gunman was bearded and dressed in an outfit typical for followers of the conservative Wahhabi branch of Islam. Bosnian TV identified the shooter as Mevlid Jasarevic, from Novi Pazar, Serbia. It said he is a Wahhabi follower, but did not cite its sources. The Wahhabis are an extremely conservative branch of Islam which is rooted in Saudi Arabia and linked to religious militants in parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan. (Or perhaps it was a Zionist in Muslim drag?)
