Never forget: CAIR's dirty deeds by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2019 The Council on American-Islamic Relations is having a banner month. The militant Muslim group never lets a crisis go to waste. That means Americans should beware. When unappeasable CAIR is ascendant, our free speech rights, religious liberty and national security are at risk.... Read More
John Brennan will be nominated today as President Obama's next director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Brennan currently serves as national security/chief counterterrorism advisor. He has made several appearances on this blog over the years -- none of them reassuring. He has downplayed Gitmo recidivism... Brennan has also echoed Obama's bleeding-heart rhetoric about murderous jihadists,... Read More
CAIR is beside itself over homeland security drills in Minneapolis that used actors playing jihadists who -- Allah forbid! -- looked like actual jihadists. The Star Tribune reports:
When will we learn? Paul Sperry, veteran investigative journalist, Hoover Institution fellow, and author of the explosive "Muslim Mafia," reports on yet another security-undermining scandal at Gitmo. Must-read in the NYPost today: A number of Arabic and Pashtu interpreters at the terror-war detention center at Guantanamo Bay are under active investigation for omitting valuable intelligence...

This latest Los Angeles Times report serves as an official CAIR dog whistle: As I mentioned last week, the flying imams' lawsuit against airport/homeland security officials was cleared for take-off earlier this summer. Fasten your seatbelts for another. *** Update: Officials say there was no threat on the LAX flight.
I know. It's a shocker. The crapweasels at CAIR act like...crapweasels. And Arlen Specter still smells like one. Via Philip Klein at the American Spectator: Tolerance of dissent is not a CAIR value. Fortitude is not a Specter value. They deserve each other.
Just in from DMN. Counting down until CAIR Islamophobia cries begin. In 3, 2, 1... A jury on Monday determined that the Holy Land Foundation and five men who worked with the Muslim charity were guilty of three dozen counts related to the illegal funneling of at least $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group...

CAIR attacks.
It's always a badge of honor to be attacked as a threat by CAIR.
Just fireworks...not.
What will CAIR say now? Ahmed Mohamed pleads guilty to providing material support to terrorists. Just an innocent kid on a joy ride with fireworks? Not: TBO.com has the PDF of the plea agreement. Excerpt: All the background on the Goose Creek Two here.
Shuffle.
Here's an update on the Texas school that failed to inform parents about a mandatory Islam presentation taught by CAIR officials (background here). The principal who allowed it has been reassigned. Via the Houston Chronicle blog: Take it with a grain of salt. CAIR hopes to give their presentation at other public schools. You've been... Read More
At a Texas public junior high school, students get mandatory lessons in Islam from...CAIR. More here. Yoo-hoo, ACLU?
Sharia creep, sharia creeps.
As I have reported over the years, there are many good reasons to be wary when CAIR and other Muslim grievance groups start banging the drum about being victimized by Islamophobia. Now, the usual suspects seem engaged in the usual tactics to distract from the controversy over the Minneapolis tax-funded Muslim school exposed by Star-Tribune... Read More
Bought and paid for.
When I lived in Seattle, he was well-known as "Baghdad Jim McDermott" and the name has stuck over the years. With good reason. Back in 2002, Stephen Hayes reported on how Baghdad Democrats David Bonior, Jim McDermott, and Mike Thompson took a trip to Iraq in the run up to the invasion and followed up... Read More
ABC News: Americans Broadcasting CAIR.
Steve Emerson weighs in on the ABC News staged Muslim bigotry stunt that I spotlighted yesterday: The ABC story was linked to a Primetime broadcast in which an actor posed as a bakery shop worker who berated a Muslim customer wearing a hijab with intense bigotry.

In April 2006, I reported on an attempt by NBC News's Dateline to stage an Islamophobia sting on NASCAR fans. In November 2007, I called attention to an attempt by ABC News's Primetime Live to stage a homophobia sting in Birmingham, Alabama. Now, Primetime Live is replicating the Islamophobia stunt thing in Texas (hat tip... Read More
Another battle in the free speech wars that the ACLU doesn't want to fight.
Mark Steyn's not alone. Stateside, Cinnamon Stillwell has a comprehensive overview of radio talker Michael Savage's battle with CAIR--placing it in the important context of the jihad apologist group's long war on many other conservative critics, scholars, and investigative journalists who have dared to raise their voices against the speech-stifling organization. Stillwell concludes: You know... Read More

Standing up for the West.
Our friend and Hot Air colleague Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, public enemy number one of CAIR, has a hot new book out: Religion of Peace? Why Christianity is and Islam Isn’t. If you buy just one more book the rest of this summer, make it this one. We have an interview up a HA.... Read More
Keeping an eye on the grievance-mongers.
Fresh off trying to shut down Robert Spencer's YAF speech, CAIR is back--desperately trying to defame Spencer by associating itself with a lying lunatic. Meantime, the terrorism trial in Dallas that should be front-page news continues and Steve Emerson reports on the latest CAIR-HAMAS revelations: In testimony Tuesday, FBI Agent Lara Burns reported before the...

Exposing the campaign to silence John Doe whistleblowers in academia and public life.
You know that outrage you expressed over the flying imams/CAIR attempt to silence John Doe whistleblowers? Well, there are other whistleblowers--the whistleblowers exposing jihadists, their funders, and their ideological apologists--who could use some of that same public outrage and help. This week, we saw CAIR try to shut down Robert Spencer. The Young America's Foundation... Read More

"We demand...or else.."
Where are all the free-speech activists when you need them? Well, when it comes to protecting the free speech of those who criticize jihad and its apologists, the free-speech protectors are hiding under their bedcovers. Wetting their pants. Covering their ears, squeezing their eyes shut, and rocking themselves to sleep. Via Bryan Preston, read this... Read More
The grievance-mongers at CAIR have issued an "Action Alert" against Rudy Giuliani for using--gasp!--the phrase "Islamic terrorism." LGF has a reminder of CAIR's attack on Giuliani for rejecting disaster-relief aid from Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal after 9/11. Badge of honor.

Diana West has the must-read column of the day on the pathetic inability of Westerners to call the war and the warriors who want infidels beheaded what they are.

Craig Perkins' uniform made him a target in Baghdad - and, he believes, again in an apartment complex near Clarkston. Perkins,... Read More

Here, let me help: Give. It. Back. Duh. Reader Steve L. writes:... Read More
Andy McCarthy rightly excoriates the dhimmis in the Bush administration for pandering to CAIR: On a weekend when the Bush administration achieved a new CAIR-friendly low, a prominent Democrat, following the lead of other prominent Democrats, distanced herself very publicly from the unsavory Council on American-Islamic Relations. The Transportation Security Administration is the executive agency... Read More

In between breathless condemnations of the Bush administration for stifling its free speech, endless court filings demanding classified and sensitive information from the military and intelligence agencies, and self-pitying media industry confabs bemoaning their hemorrhaging circulations (with the exception of the New York Post), my colleagues in the American media don't have much to time...

Yes, I've followed the case of the six praying imams removed from a US Airways flight at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and questioned by police for several hours before being released.
