Was CAIR founded by Islamic terrorists?

Isn’t this interesting in light of recent postings regarding Hugh Hewitt’s radio guest of July 25th & 26th, Mr. Hussam Ayloush of CAIR. Daniel Pipes and Sharon Chadha have a piece today at FrontPage magazine.com which appears to confirm concerns of many about CAIR.

“We list here the key statements that CAIR no longer deems legally improper, followed by some speculations as to why it might have decided not to contest them in court.
· [CAIR is an] organization founded by Hamas supporters….
· CAIR was started by Hamas members….
· CAIR … was founded by Islamic terrorists.”

The piece is well worth reading at FrontPage magazine.com. Thanks go to The Center for Security Policy for providing the link.


United States Congress vs. PRC

It is good to see that Congress can, at times, recognize that the national security interest of the United States are worth defending before someone takes action against us. Here is good news from The Center for Security Policy:

“In a good first step toward combating Communist China’s campaign of economic warfare against the United States, the conference committee finalizing Congress’ energy bill voted Monday to delay by more than four months a Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) review of China National Offshore Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) bid to purchase Unocal.”

“Congress would first require that the Energy, Homeland Security and Defense departments conduct a 120-day study on how China’s search for energy resources affects the economic and national security interests of the United States.”

CAIR now has me scared!

Until yesterday I had an admittedly skeptical belief that the problems with Islamic radicals were mostly external of the United States. After the spokesperson for the Southern California chapter CAIR, Hussam Ayloush was on the Hugh Hewitt radio program for the past two days I am now scared that, if CAIR is representative of American Islamic opinion, we are in grave danger from within this country.

Here is an excerpt from Hugh’s program, courtesy of Radio Blogger where Mr Ayloush is asked specifically to address CAIR’s documented relationship with the terrorist organization Hamas:

HH: Okay. Can we now go to Hamas?

HA: I’m going back to the issue itself. The CAIR stand…you know, first of all, CAIR cannot be put…the Muslim organizations, the Muslim community in America, cannot be put on a litmus test, specifically about each organization…

HH: Why not?

HA: Because that is offensive.

HH: Why is that offensive? Hamas is a terrorist organization.

HA: Because…You’re almost saying you’re not American enough. I have to question you on your views about Israel.

It is extremely frightening that CAIR, an American organization, is unwilling to disassociate itself from, and condemn, Hamas which has targeted and killed American citizens. I hope Hugh will follow up with a national representative of CAIR to determine if the Southern California chapter is an aberration. If as a National organization CAIR is filled with those who will excuse and thus support terrorism, and in particular if CAIR is representative of American Islamic opinion, I fear the danger within this country is much greater than ever imagined.

Thanks Radio Blogger for posting the transcript.

Once a Commie traitor always a Commie traitor!

Jane Fonda is proving why the left cannot be trusted with political power today. The majority of leaders in today’s Democrat party share the same rebellious, left leaning, self important, policies as Ms. Fonda. Thank you Ms Fonda for reminding us why it is critical to defeat every Democrat, in every race, until the party gains some responsible members.

FOXNews.com has the story.

CAIR representative builds case for being dangerous!

Hugh Hewitt again has Mr. Ayloush from the California chapter of CAIR on his show along with Frank Gaffney of The Center for Security Policy. Not sounding incompetent, Mr. Ayloush so far seems to be making a case for CAIR to be dangerous.

More will follow around the blogosphere I am certain.

China makes it urgent for the US Navy to build more warships!

The regional navy of China has 215 warships compared with the global navy of the United States with 287. Those 215 warships of the expansionist Chinese navy are concentrated in a relatively small part of the world and represent an enormous threat to United States interest. The balance of power in the far east has never been so negatively weighted against the United States since late in 1941 after the Japanese crippled a significant portion of the US Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor. It took 2 years of complete national industrial and manpower mobilization, and enormous good fortune, before the United States gained the upper hand over an expansionist Pacific power. With an ongoing global war on terror and in a different age which resist the national mobilization of World War II it is critical that we begin building now to face the possibility, or probability, of a conflict with China.

Vanquished Simplicity has the link to the 2005 DOD report on China’s military. Get it compare it with present United States Naval strength.

Is CAIR dangerous or incompetent?

Hugh Hewitt spent over an hour on his radio program today with a representative from the California chapter of CAIR. I apologize for not getting the gentleman’s name but am certain it will be at Hugh Hewitt later in the day. The CAIR spokesman did not help ease concerns of a religious and ethnic community that seems eager to equivocate on the origin of the terrorism being perpetrated by Islamic extremist in the name of Islam today. While eager to reassure the American public that Islam is a religion of peace and that all terrorism is to be condemned, he was unable or unwilling to condemn those who are sponsoring or encouraging the terrorism he claims to abhor. When confronted with specific instances of Islamic extremism he always first condemned but then seemed to excuse or deny them. Overall, if he meant what he said as a representative of CAIR, and if CAIR supports what he said, than CAIR sounds dangerous. If what he said was not representative of the Islamic community, and I hope this is the case, than he is incompetent as a spokesperson and CAIR needs to come on Hugh’s program to clarify their position.

It was a fascinating interview which I hope Hugh will replay in part and comment on. I expect there will be additional information about this interview at Hugh Hewitt or Radio Blogger soon.
