The King Hearings: Is CAIR a Terrorist Organization?

–Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.)

“CAIR [The Council on American-Islamic Relations] was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the terrorist financing case involving the Holy Land Foundation. In the lead-up to this hearing, I found it shocking and sad that the mainstream media accepted CAIR’s accusations as if it were a legitimate organization.” (More on WaPo)

The “Obsession” We Have to Have, Because Infiltration is Real:

Yet another Muslim trying desperately to make King the bogeyman

Ali Velshi is another Stealth Jihadist who managed to get himself a gig with the Caliphate Networx. Naturally he tries to undermine the King hearings:

CNN’s Velshi: Rep. Peter King Has ‘Strange Obsession with Islam’

On Thursday’s Newsroom, CNN’s Ali Velshi claimed that Rep. Peter King has a “seemingly strange obsession with Islam and Islamists, or whatever you want to call it,” given the lead up and the first day of hearings looking into the radicalization of American Muslims. Velshi also bizarrely stated that “I don’t quite understand how when you put an -ist at the end of it [Islamism], it changes the subject.” Read more: newsbusters

Kucinich statement on King hearings: “If Resentment Grows, Peace Will be Delayed”

The fact that one set of hearings focuses on one very real and unique threat the national security does not mean the government is turning a blind eye to other threats. Hearings on “extremism,” for example, would be unfocused, and unproductive, and would deflect attention from the proverbial elephant in the room, and what is demonstrably the most active and geographically widespread terrorist threat.

Then again, perhaps that is exactly the idea. “Kucinich: If Resentment Grows, Peace Will be Delayed,” from his congressional website, March 11 (Kucinich corrupt and in the Arab pocket? Would that surprise you?

Dems at King hearings recite Muslim Brotherhood-linked group’s talking points

Once again it turns out that the Brotherhood is involved in resistance to counter-jihad efforts, and is calling the shots even among America’s legislators.

Rep King vs the Islamic monster: the way the Islamists see it…..

Rep. King’s hearings are shining light in dark places

Only the Muselmanic Wall of Resistance  Tries to Prevent if  (WaPo)

Opponents of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s hearings on domestic Muslim extremism have tried to make the controversy into a civil rights battle. The more the left obfuscates the issue, the more dangerous the threat becomes.

One line of argument is that the House Homeland Security Committee hearings are unfairly discriminatory because they don’t address other domestic terror threats, such as from purportedly violent militia groups.Rep. Al Green, Texas Democrat, bizarrely contended that failing to investigate the Ku Klux Klan somehow amounted to a defense of that organization. “Over a hundred years of terrorism, why not investigate them too?” he lectured The Washington Times’ Kerry Picket. But – perhaps unbeknownst to Mr. Green – the KKK and related groups have been and continue to be investigated thoroughly by the FBI and have been the subject of congressional inquiries dating back to the days of the House Un-American Activities Committee.   (WaPo)

Predictable: Mainstream media begins handwringing over looming anti-Muslim “backlash” from King hearings

Here we go again: Muslims attempt to mass-murder non-Muslims — think of the jihad terror mass murder in Fort Hood; jihad mass-murder plots thwarted in Portland; Baltimore; Lubbock, Texas; North Carolina; Times Square; on an airplane over Detroit; and more — and that’s just the last few months. And in the mainstream media, Muslims turn out to be the victims. In a sane world, Laura Yuen would be writing about how the Muslim community in Minneapolis was working hard to prove its loyalty to American Constitutional values, and instituting programs to teach against the understanding of Islam manifested by Islamic jihadists. Instead, they’re the victims, as always.

Mainstream media journalists are drearily predictable in their readiness to retail this line. It is remarkable how it never seems to occur to any of them to ask even the most basic probing questions about what these poor victims actually intend to do on their side to try to prevent future jihad attacks, and thereby head off this frightening “backlash.”

“Minnesota Muslim leaders skeptical and disappointed after radicalization hearing,” by Laura Yuen for Minnesota Public Radio, March 11:

CBS Accuses Peter King of ‘Poisoning the Atmosphere’ of Radical Islam Hearings

Dumber than dirt:

On Thursday’s CBS Evening News, congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes implied that the House Homeland Security Committee hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims was simply a political show put on by committee chairman Peter King: Ignoring calls from Democrats to cancel his hearing…King embarked on the inquiry in a room newly decorated with fiery images from 9/11.”

Cordes later declared that “King’s own past assertion that most U.S. mosques are run by radicals” resulted in “poisoning the atmosphere” of the hearing. She remarked on how King’s “relations with Muslim leaders there [in his Long Island, NY district] deteriorated after 9/11.” A sound bite was then featured of Dr. Faroque Kahn of the Islamic Center of Long Island, who labeled King a “Muslim-basher.”  Read more: NewsBusters

Sheila’s Katzenyammer:

Sheila Musaji in the ‘American Muslim’:

“No credentials, Zuhdi Yasser is not a scholar of Islam,  right-wing media, Jasser was opposed to the Park51/Cordoba House project, marginalizing the American Muslim community, demonizing 100% of the existing leadership,”-

Why so many words, Sheila? Why do you even bother?

    CAIR to protest NY state senator’s hearings on post-9/11 security

    Critics call terrorism hearing in Manhattan “anti-Muslim”

    “None of us are condemning the hearings’ stated purpose,” Mr. Carroll said. Sure. The thing is that everyone who dares to speak the truth about how jihadis use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism is targeted as “biased against Islam” and too extreme for polite company. There is no terrorism hearing anywhere that would look at Islamic jihad terrorism in a realistic way that would be acceptable to these “critics.”

  2. NY State Senator, brandishing Qur’an, accuses ex-Muslim human rights activist of “bringing hate and poison” into hearings on terrorism

    Yet another circus of political correctness and claiming victim status for Muslims, without any honest discussion of how jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism. More on this story. “Hearing on Terror Includes Heated Debate on Islam,” by Thomas Kaplan in the New York Times, April 8:

    In a local reprise of a polarizing Congressional hearing last month on the question of Islam and terror, state lawmakers warned in grave terms on Friday of the threats facing the New York area, while other lawmakers and interfaith groups criticized the proceedings as anti-Muslim and incendiary.
    The hearing, which was convened by the State Senate’s homeland security committee, was something of a spectacle: Security was ramped up at the office building in Lower Manhattan where state legislators have work space, and television cameramen easily outnumbered lawmakers.

    Adding to the theatrics, the hearing began to great fanfare with testimony from the lawmaker who convened the Congressional hearing, Representative Peter T. King, a Long Island Republican, who has promised further federal inquiries into what he describes as the radicalization of American Muslims.

    Mr. King prefaced his comments by noting that “99 percent” of Muslims in the United States are “outstanding Americans” and not terrorists.

    It would have been refreshing if King had spoken about stealth jihadists and Islamic supremacists, who are not terrorists, but he still apparently has only a rudimentary understanding of what we’re really up against.

    “But the fact is: The enemy, or those being recruited by Al Qaeda, live within the Muslim community, and that’s the reality we have to face,” Mr. King said. “This is not to put a broad brush over a community, but you go where the threat is coming from, and that’s the reality today.”
    Mr. King testified at the invitation of Senator Gregory R. Ball, a Putnam County Republican who is chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs. Mr. Ball was criticized by Muslim and interfaith groups as well as a group of Senate Democrats for his inclusion of Islamic law as one of the hearing’s topics; they accused him of exploiting the threat of terrorism to incite a fear of Muslims among the broader public.

    But on Friday, as reporters crammed into a low-ceilinged meeting room for the daylong hearing, Mr. Ball defended the scope of the committee’s inquiry, saying that he asked lawmakers to propose other witnesses but received very little input.

    “There are some who are more concerned about the front-page press than today,” Mr. Ball said. “I understand politics. But we cannot allow our homeland security to become a political football.”

    Among the witnesses whose scheduled testimony provoked the most criticism was Nonie Darwish, an Egyptian-born American who is president of a group called Former Muslims United, and Frank Gaffney, a former Defense Department official who has often criticized Islam.

    Ms. Darwish testified on Friday that young people in the Arab world are taught as children to hate America and to look favorably on terrorism. “The education of Arab children is to make killing of certain groups of people not only good,” she said. “It’s holy. It becomes holy in our culture.”

    Her testimony was met with an angry rebuke from Senator Eric Adams, a Brooklyn Democrat, who held up a Koran and said that Ms. Darwish was “bringing hate and poison” to the hearing. Mr. Ball tried to quiet Mr. Adams, and their back-and-forth descended into a shouting match, with Mr. Adams suggesting that Mr. Ball was condoning bigotry and Mr. Ball accusing him of pandering to the news media….

    Note how Adams uses the familiar Islamic supremacist tactic of accusing that those who report on the hate and poison of jihadists and Islamic supremacists of spreading that hate and poison. He did not, and could not, refute what Nonie Darwish said about the education of Arab children, so he decided instead to shoot the messenger.

    And as for a critic of Islam bringing hate and poison into the hearing, which Adams countered by waving around the Qur’an as a talisman, one wonders if he ever bothered to open the book even once. Adams is worried about hate and poison? How about this for starters:

    “O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.” — Qur’an 5:51

    “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans…” — Qur’an 5:82

    “The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!” — Qur’an 9:30

    “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29

    “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks. At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens.” — Qur’an 47:4

    “Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.” — Qur’an 98:6
