CAIR: Upholding America’s
Founding Principles? (...Or Not)
Nihad Awad, co-founder of
the terrorist supporting front
group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is once again "standing
up" for true American principles. The source of Awad’s sudden "appreciation" of
American principles is spelled out in CAIR’s
reaction to Lowe’s, an American company, pulling its advertising from a low
rated "reality" cable TV program criticized as propaganda called “All-American
that Lowe’s pulled its advertising in reaction to the efforts of the
"Florida Family Association" which Awad claims is part of an organization of
“anti-Muslim hate groups”. Lowe's said they
pulled their ads because the show had become a "lightning rod
for people to voice complaints from a variety of perspectives - political,
social and otherwise." Another advertiser, Kayak.com, ended their ad
the show "sucked".
Awad rants: “We are not alone in this fight
-- several celebrities, media outlets and elected officials have spoken out
against Lowe's capitulation to bigotry. Our staff are putting time and effort
into this campaign...”
Exactly what is CAIR campaigning for?
Is the goal to force Lowe’s
to financially support a controversial program that Lowe’s doesn’t want
associated with its image?
Awad declares; “This is a fight our
community cannot afford to lose.”
So, the entire American Muslim
population has its whole American experience tied up with “All-American
Muslim”? Although CAIR attempts to paint a horrific picture if "All American
Muslim" loses sponsorship and fails, at worst a few more American's who happen
to be Muslim will lose their jobs playing to the camera on a little-watched TV
program. That's show-biz.
Americans, Muslim or not, have absolutely
nothing to lose if Lowe’s refuses to reinstate sponsorship. We all have much
more to lose if Lowe’s bows down to pressure from CAIR, an Islamist hate group
co-founded by a hate-filled religious
bigot, and bonifide
terrorists. At least Lowe’s is honest where they stand - which is much more
than you can say for Awad and his ilk.
Bottom line. If Awad
believes so much in “All-American Muslim” why doesn’t CAIR cough up some of
their foreign funds and
become a sponsor of the program?
