Alternate Universe or World Gone Crazy

Have you ever woke up and thought that maybe you were in an alternate universe, very close to the one you've always known but just a little bit more crazy?

Me neither..until this morning.

Washington Times

A House Democrat has arranged for a conference room in the Capitol building to be used tomorrow by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim advocacy group criticized for its persistent refusal to disavow terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

It has also refused to denounce terrorist acts committed against Israel. Even Chuck Schumer has criticized CAIR for its ties to terrorism.

The District-based group also is singled out by other Democratic lawmakers and some law-enforcement officials because of financial ties to terrorists.
Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., New Jersey Democrat, reserved the basement conference room for CAIR's panel discussion Tuesday titled "Global Attitudes on Islam-West Relations: U.S. Policy Implications."

Why has this group decided that it needed space from the US Capitol? Aren't there enough forums or mosques for this type of event, or why isn't CAIR using its own headquarters in CAIR using the Capitol to legitimize itself and its conclusions? The last thing we need is to allow groups associated with terrorism to use the Capitol building as a soapbox.

"We just see it as a simple room request," Pascrell spokesman Caley Gray said. "We did receive a room request and evaluated it and approved it."
He said the forum "opens up an important dialogue about global public opinion concerning the United States."

Concerning the US? Are there US Representatives at this meeting or is this another media trumped event to legitimize CAIR?

Still, the event's sponsor raised eyebrows on Capitol Hill, even if all sorts of groups routinely hold receptions and meetings in the Capitol.
"It does happen all the time but usually it is the United Way or some constituent group or Mothers Against Drunk Driving, not a group with supposed ties to terrorism -- in the Capitol no less," a Hill staffer said.
CAIR officials did not return a call seeking comment.
The room -- H-137 -- is controlled by the Ways and Means Committee.
Mr. Pascrell is a committee member and can reserve the room for any guest provided he "vouch it complies with House rules," said committee spokesman Matthew Beck.
CAIR, which is country's largest Islamic civil liberties group with 31 chapters nationwide, has never been charged with terrorism crimes and the organization is known to cooperate with the FBI and the Justice Department.
However, CAIR officials have been charged with -- and some convicted of -- offenses related to the support of terrorism, including CAIR fundraiser Rabih Haddad, founding board member Ghassan Elashi and former CAIR civil rights coordinator Randall Royer.

Let's keep this group out of our Capitol unless it is there to testify on its own terrorist ties and activities.

Not only should CAIR not be allowed in our Capitol building, they shouldn't be allowed on US soil! This should be taken as an opportunity to round up these terrorists and deport them!

What's next? The Islamic Thinker's Society, who openly (as CAIR does) promote Sharia law and the Cresent flag over our capitol?

We definitely live in an alternate universe!

Our politicians suck up to CAIR. Several attend CAIR's banquets. Why, why, why? Looking for votes, I guess. But CAIR's declared membership is only 4000-5000.

i posted on this also, a.c. and i wonder why it's just coming out today? how long does one usually have to wait for this privilege?

perhaps the powers that be did not want any naysayers attending?

Is it better that CAIR should play word games. We know what they are about. By now we should expect our politicians to do dopey things.

House GOP Opposes 'Terrorist Apologists' Summit On

A House Republican leadership group said Monday that
Democrats should retract an offer to let the nation's
largest Islamic civil liberties organization use a
Capitol conference room for a seminar. The House
Republican Conference referred to the Council on
American-Islamic Relations as "terrorist apologists"
and called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to cancel the
forum scheduled for Tuesday. "Democrats arrange
official meeting with pro-Hamas, pro- Hezbollah group
in U.S. Capitol," headlined a Conference press release
carrying a Washington Times article on the planned
meeting ...

Schumer is fairly tough on terror and has cused the Saudi Ambassador headaches.

Why are you surprised? If liberals have shown us nothing else about their beliefs, they have proven to have a total obsession with suicide.

I got an idea, leak to Ted Kennedy they want to make the Capitol building dry, no booze. In fact they'll put a breath-a-lizer at the door like prom. He'll scream belligerently and that should run them off. Better yet, tell CAIR of the "pork" that comes from that area.

Steve, I'm glad the House Republicans stood up to CAIR but why would any member of Congress think this was a good idea?

At 5:07 AM, Blogger American Crusader said...

beak...I've been surprised by some of Schumer's positions. I

Not bad obob..that will definitely get some results.

MZ..I wouldn't be surprised if CAIR used this event to blow up the Capitol building.

I'm a bit alarmed at the discrimination that terrorist sympathizers have been facing lately.

There would be a severe lack of diversity if everyone only supported democracy.

You're exactly right fn...that would make us un-American.
Maybe we can send them some money or something...I know...let's give them control of our shipping ports.

Florian is now doing the interview segments. He would like to know if you would sit for an interview.

I have moved to a less interactive format and no longer do interviews.

I plan on mentioning this story on the radio show this Friday.
