A recent article by Adam Savit reports on CAIR’s slanderous remarks about ACT! for America. The organization calls ACT! an “anti-Islam hate group” and its founder, BrigitteGabriel, “an extremist anti-Islam speaker.” CAIR’s National Communications Director, Ibrahim Hooper, stated,
“Now is the time for Tea Party leaders to clearly demonstrate that their movement will not allow itself to be associated with bigotry of any kind, including Islamophobia.” Hooper appears to want to censor any critics of Islamic Shariah law, such as ACT! Director Gabriel.
The article continues:
Even stronger attempts to silence Shariah critics came from CAIR-Los Angeles Executive Director Hussam Ayloush just last week, in the context of a dispute over how California school textbooks should portray Islam. He said,“Involving ACT! for America in educational material on Islam is akin to allowing the KKK to educate American students on the history of African Americans or Judaism.” Ayloush went on to tell the Orange County Weekly, “ACT! for America represents a small, but vocal, minority of extremists promoting anti-Muslim bigotry and religious disharmony around the country.”
