"CAIR Does Not Get Dragged Into Middle East Conflicts"

Below is an article off the website of CAIR regarding the defeat of a bill in the Maryland state legislature having to do with boycott efforts against Israel on college campuses.

"Last month, representatives of CAIR's Maryland Office, Jewish Voice for Peace, ACLU-MD, Center for Constitutional Rights, and many other diverse organizations testified at committee hearings in opposition of these bills."

"Although the bills were defeated, the bill sponsors did succeed in adding anti-boycott language into the state budget which reaffirms Maryland's Declaration of Cooperation with the state of Israel. However, the clause that was approved was significantly tamer than the original language in legislation introduced by Delegate Kramer that likened anti-BDS support to anti-Semitism."

But wait a minute. If I recall, CAIR's Southern California director, Hussam Ayloush, angrily told an interviewer (among other things) last November in Anaheim that CAIR is a US civil rights organization and doesn't get dragged into Middle East conflicts. But don't take my word for it, here is the video courtesy of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

I guess Mr Ayloush was misinformed.

I am not a supporter of CAIR, and have a somewhat negative opinion of Islam, but CAIR is 100% correct in this case.

The Maryland bill was an attempt by a Jewish politician (Kramer) to classify criticism of Israel as bigotry, and punish colleges with monetary sanctions if they allowed their student governments to vote for BDS.

The issue is not so much one of foreign policy, but of Free Speech in Maryland and the rest of country.

Another reason never to vote for a Jewish politician.

I was prepared to say point well taken until your last bigoted line about Jews.

My thesis in the above piece was not necessarily to support the proposed legislation, but to pout the lie to Ayloush's statement that CAIR does not get dragged into Middle East conflicts.

I assume you have sent anti-semitic screeds this way before under the cover of anonymous. You and the other anonymous anti-semites are like cockroaches who scurry for the crack in the kitchen floor at the first sign of light. That is why you (unlike me) remain anonymous.

@ Anonymous,

Your words betray you and your points. There are those of us who know what Islamists want and it is to destroy the American Constitution and put Sharia in its place. The Islamists, will work to reduce our 1st Amendment rights. CAIR wants to put Islamist political power, which is totalitarian, in place.
Every reader should obtain the "An Explanatory MEMORANDUM from the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in America". This explains what the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood has in mind for America. It has worked at Brandeis.
