Sometimes you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
That’s what a Washington state teaching veteran of 21 years found out recently when she tried to offer some illustrations for her government-mandated lessons against bullying.
After all, to understand what bullying is all about, some examples might be enlightening.
So Mary Janda offered up what probably sound like two pretty good ones on the current world stage – the terrorist organization Hamas and the Afghan Taliban responsible for harboring Osama bin Laden and imposing a harsh 7th century-style Islamic lifestyle on its subjects as well as blowing up ancient Buddhist statues.
If Hamas and the Taliban are not good examples of bullies, who is?
But, apparently, to one group claiming to be a defender of civil rights, Janda’s example was Islamophobic and seeks literally to make a federal case out of it.
Do I even need to name the organization?
In other words, CAIR is publicly taking the incongruous position that Hamas and the Taliban are not examples of bullies at all. Of course, maybe that’s not so incongruous at all given the fact CAIR was actually formed by members of Hamas in 1993 with the express purpose of putting a friendly public-relations face on the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. – a sly move that has succeeded in hoodwinking most of the major media. In 2007, federal prosecutors even named CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund Hamas.
It’s just the latest of many amazing stories about this Muslim Brotherhood front group masquerading successfully inside America as a do-gooder organization, thanks to the full cooperation of a self-consciously multicultural, see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-evil media monopoly.
Let me tell you more about these domestic bullies:
- The Justice Department tied CAIR to its terror-finance case against the Richardson, Texas-based Holy Land Foundation, which was convicted of funneling more than $12 million to Hamas.
- FBI wiretap evidence from the Holy Land case showed CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad was at an October 1993 meeting of Hamas leaders and activists in Philadelphia. CAIR, according to the evidence, was born out of a need to give a “media twinkle” to the Muslim leaders’ agenda of supporting violent jihad abroad while slowly institutionalizing Islamic law in the U.S.
- As WND reported in 2010, a federal judge later determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate CAIR as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, affirming the Muslim group has been involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.” The judge did not dispute “press accounts and blog entries” that “CAIR is a criminal organization that supports terrorism,” according to the ruling.
- And here’s the clincher: More than a dozen CAIR leaders have been charged or convicted of terrorism-related crimes. Does this make you angry?
I hope so.
Would you like to help me do battle with CAIR and expose its nefarious activities?
I hope so.
For years, WND has been battling CAIR’s efforts to sue David and Chris Gaubatz – two intrepid investigators, one of whom went undercover to expose the group. It’s been a costly battle – and WND has been paying all the legal bills for these two heroes.
CAIR receives funding from Saudi sheiks and other Muslim Brotherhood sources. That means we’re financially overmatched. But we’ve got the law and the facts on our side in our effort to defend the First Amendment and the integrity of our national security.
