CAIR bullies people into submission

Islam's presentation as a "religion of peace" is coming across as incredibly bogus in light of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) bullying of management at Disney-owned radio station WMAL in Washington.

WMAL has "suspended indefinitely" conservative radio talk show host Michael Graham pending an "investigation" of an opinion Graham presented on the air July 25.

Curiously, this comes behind the beginning of CAIR's concerted and well-defined campaign of contacting WMAL advertisers, asking that they exert pressure on the Disney-owned station regarding some sort of punishment of Graham.

Graham's on-air comments that have excited CAIR include: "Because of the mix of Islamic theology that -- rightly or wrongly -- is interpreted to promote violence, added to an organizational structure that allows violent radicals to operate openly in Islam's name with impunity, Islam has, sadly, become a terrorist organization. It pains me to say it. But the good news is it doesn't have to stay this way, if the vast majority of Muslims who don't support terror will step forward and re-claim their religion."

I'm sorry, but I have to agree with Graham. Believers in Islam around the world have been exceedingly silent regarding the constant and increasing levels of terrorism perpetrated in the name of Islam. The voices of dissent from within have been miniscule at best since 9/11.

Ironically, on July 28, CAIR announced a "fatwa" or religious edict against Islamic terrorism, a scant four years after the 9/11 terror attacks.

It sounds to me like CAIR is trying to clean up their own muddling mess in order to make them look better in light of their bullying of Disney. As much as CAIR tries to dress it up, until and unless they can take a stronger and more legitimate stand against Islmaic terror both in America and across the globe, CAIR looks more like a complicit organizations trying to justify terror than a moderate voice of reason trying to help rehabilitate their religion and religious zealots.

1 Michael, I've heard that CAIR's fatwa was a hoax/fraud/simply wasn't true. I think that I read that on LGF...either way, that slimy bastard would stone his own mother to accomplish his goals.

2 I spoke to CAIR's spokesman on c-span about sexism and wahhabism in American mosques. He poo-pooed them both. He was disingenuous at best.
