As y’ll know, I don’t have a problem calling out CAIR.
But there are two points I’d like to share this morning. First of all, I hope you’ve had a chance to see the speech given by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi calling for a religious revolution in Islam. Finally, someone is saying a reformation is required. We posted that speech last week, and here’s another excellent clip.
Secondly, we previously reported that the United Arab Emirates expanded its own Islamic terrorist organization list — which you recall included several organizations residing here in America, CAIR and MAS. Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have also designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. The Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terrorist funding case in US history, the Holy Land Foundation trial — has a plush office right on Capitol Hill.With those points being established — has there been a peep of a response from any of those organizations listed by the UAE regarding President el-Sisi’s speech? As reported by Counter Jihad Report, “Letters were issued to several Islamic organizations in the United States by a coalition of concerned citizens to get their official response to recent comments by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
The organizations contacted for their response included the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim American Society (MAS), and the North American Islamic Trust. The Coalition sought responses for the following questions:
- Is it the position of your organization that the imams of Al Azhar have a responsibility to renounce the “mindset” of jihad, conquest, and, as suggested by President Sisi, genocide of the world’s non-Muslims?
- Is it the position of your organization that the time is right for a “religious revolution,” as President Sisi stated?
- Is it the position of your organization that jihad is a holy obligation for all Muslims?”
I for one would like to know the answers to these inquiries. Doggone, I think the Obama administration should respond to the questions of this coalition of concerned citizens. And why not?
Why shouldn’t they respond to these questions — unless we’re allowing our own “no go zones” to be established in the United States by groups with immense political influence which just happen to be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood associated.
As a matter of fact, as we reported a few days ago, this weekend, there will be a conference right here in Garland, Texas whose featured speaker has frequently spouted incendiary and seditious rhetoric. This is exactly what President el-Sisi was referring to in his New Year’s Day speech.
So where do these organizations and our own Obama administration stand? It’s one thing to disregard the violent jihad, but what about allowing infiltration of the stealth jihad? Well, a time is coming — perhaps already here? — where stealth is no longer needed. Currently, Western leaders have little to no stomach to define the enemies and take the requisite steps for defeat – and their eventual destruction. But the first step is to acknowledge their existence — and as this letter does, force the potential enemy to declare its positions.
Counter Jihad Report states, “President Sisi urged the imams (religious leaders) at Al Azhar to denounce the violence and revolution that has defined the Middle East since the Arab Spring. He urged the venerable institution to condemn the idea that “1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live? Impossible!”
“Since the Arab Spring, the moderate and stable regimes have been under sustained assault by terrorist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida, the Islamic State, and other affiliated networks. President Sisi came to power in Egypt following the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, who is himself a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
And interestingly enough, the Obama administration has shunned Egypt ever since they ousted the Muslim Brotherhood. Why would that be? Why would the U.S. not embrace a movement, a leader and a nation that overthrew the grandaddy of Islamic terrorist groups? After all, this is the same Muslim Brotherhood that assassinated Anwar Sadat for his signature on the Camp David Peace Accords — in other words they don’t want peaceful coexistence.
And here we are again in Egypt, with a courageous leader who wishes the destruction of this violent Islamic jihad movement, and the destruction of its base ideology.
Where do these groups stand? Where do the policies of President Obama stand?
“President Sisi’s speech is seen as a direct challenge to the Muslim Brotherhood and the idea that jihad, or war against non-Muslims, must define Islam. According to the Muslim Brotherhood charter, jihad is the duty of all Muslims, and the highest honor for Muslims is actual death fighting jihad. (The motto of the organization states, “God is our objective; the Qur’an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of God is our wish.”)”
What part of that do the cultural jihadist apologists not understand?
You can see a full copy of the letter sent here. I would encourage those of you who want to get engaged to copy, paste, print, and mail this letter out yourselves — unless you’re not part of a coalition of concerned citizens…
