CAIR's Hussam Ayloush Mourns Death of Qaradawi

Yusuf al Qaradawi (L) and Hussam Ayloush (R)

Several days ago, Yusuf al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, died in exile in Qatar. Many Muslims considered Qaradawi to be one of the most- if not the most- knowledgeable scholars within the Muslim world when it came to Islam. Considering his long history of hateful and violent references to Jews, Christians, and "infidels" in general, coupled with his support for terrorism, I would tend to agree if you get my drift.

So it hardly comes as a shock to see how many US-based Muslim organizations, especially those tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, have expressed sorrow over the passing of this hateful man. These include CAIR, the Muslim American Society, and Islamic Circle of North America Sisters. Do these organizations speak for all Muslims in the US? Not in my opinion. Yet, CAIR, more than any of the others, considers itself the principal "civil rights group" in the US for Muslims. They are a particularly arrogant bunch. They do not represent all Muslims in the US.

That brings me to the Southern California director of CAIR, Hussam Ayloush. I have heard him speak many times and on a couple of occasions, have exchanged my differences of opinion with him. I have seen and heard him make what I consider anti-Semitic references, and I have called him an anti-Semite to his face.

So it hardly comes as a surprise when Ayloush pays great tributes to Qaradawi on the occasion of his death. This week, Ayloush devoted a Friday sermon in tribute to Qaradawi at the Orange County Islamic Institute in Mission Viejo, California, which he proudly posted on his Facebook page.

The Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood, which is now outlawed in Egypt, is the umbrella organization from which many terrorist organizations have sprung, including al Qaeda, ISIS, and Hamas. CAIR is also an arm of the MB. Qaradawi, contrary to what his defenders say about him, was a man of hate and violence. That organizations like CAIR would praise and mourn him speaks volumes.
