A lawsuit against CAIR

CAIR (The Council of Islamic-American Relations) has been considered by many to be the voice of moderate Islam in America. When several Muslim imams were behaving suspiciously in an airport, as I recall, it was CAIR that threatened to prosecute the people who reported the suspicious behavior! As I understand it, CAIR has even consulted with our government on Islamic relations.

Now, "Four clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have filed a federal civil complaint alleging criminal fraud and racketeering against CAIR...." CAIR's national leadership has been implicated in the suit.

According to the attorney prosecuting the case, “The evidence has long suggested that CAIR is a criminal organization set up by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas to further its aims of stealth Jihad in the U.S.,” Please read Jihad Watch for the whole story.

I certainly hope the Obama administration will have more discernment when dealing with Islamic organizations than the Bush administration had. I fear, however, that there will be less discernment rather than more.

Your fears are well-founded. I am amazed at the people who do not take words and seriously. Statements that go against what someone says like, "I believe he will govern from the center" or "I don't really believe he will carry that out" are pure lunacy in my opinion.

One thing is for certain and that is no matter how far left the democrats go, they will call it the center...........
