The pernicious cancer of the Big Lie is spreading: the arrogant and supremacist Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is urging Congress to pass a resolution officially recognizing the Islamic fast of Ramadan.
CAIR advised American Muslims to “blitz” their elected representatives with phone calls and urge them to pass the resolution honoring the Muslim holy month.
CAIR calls the resolution “an important tool for encouraging dialogue between Muslims and their elected officials, as well as enhancing understanding of the Islamic faith.
CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a “front group” for Hamas. Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges.
Although CAIR signed a fatwa, or decree, condemning terrorism in general, the group repeatedly has attacked the prosecutions of Islamic terrorists arrested or convicted since 9-11 and the government’s freezing of Islamic terrorist fronts, calling it a “war against Islam” by the United States.
CAIR’s new resolution reads:
“Recognizing the commencement of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, and commending Muslims in the United States and throughout the world for their faith.
“Whereas since the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, threats and incidents of violence have been directed at law-abiding, patriotic Americans of African, Arab, and South Asian descent, particularly members of the Islamic faith;
“Whereas on September 14, 2001, the House of Representatives passed a concurrent resolution condemning bigotry and violence against Arab-Americans, American Muslims, and Americans from South Asia in the wake of the terrorist attacks in New York, New York, and Washington, D.C.;
“Whereas it is estimated that there are approximately 1,500,000,000 Muslims worldwide;
“Whereas Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal for Muslims worldwide, and is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar year; and
“Whereas the observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan commences at dusk on October 15*, 2005, and continues for one lunar month: Now, therefore, be it
“Resolved, That –
“(1) during this time of conflict, in order to demonstrate solidarity with and support for members of the community of Islam in the United States and throughout the world, the House of Representatives recognizes the Islamic faith as one of the great religions of the world; and
“(2) in observance of and out of respect for the commencement of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, the House of Representatives acknowledges the onset of Ramadan and expresses its deepest respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this significant occasion.”
*Note: This is an early copy, Ramadan 2005 is expected to commence October 4th or 5th.
What exactly is this Islamic solidarity? Does it include the spirit of jihad? If so, then don’t be so shocked when the rest of the We the People revive the spirit of the Crusades and the spirit of victory born of the crushing defeat of the jihadi despots of the Barbary states by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The evidence is irrefutable that the 19 suicide hijackers on 9/11 were just acting out their “Islamic solidarity”. By flying passenger aircraft into the Twin Towers and Pentagon, Muslims committed an act of “Islamic solidarity”.
Folks, we are at war with Islamists and their definition of “solidarity.” Say NO to this proposed resolution.
