CAIR Applauds Feds for Standing Up to Tenn. Anti-Muslim ‘Mob’
WASHINGTON, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today applauded federal officials who were heckled last night in Tennessee by an anti-Muslim “mob.” …
… Anti-Muslim slurs heard before or during the event included “Islam is evil.” The U.S. attorney was called a “traitor” and “serpent” for speaking out against hate crimes targeting Muslims. Other hecklers shouted “communist,” “socialist” and “Muslim” at the officials and promoted the manufactured claim that “sharia,” or Islamic principles, is being imposed in America. … byÂ Â MarketWatchÂ thanks to Mullah

Big surprise. “IRS exempts terror front group over tea party,” fromÂ WND, June 3 (thanks to JW):
At the same time the Internal Revenue Service delayed or denied requests for tax-exempt status from hundreds of conservative non-profit groups, it was quietly restoring the tax-exempt status of an Islamist front group accused of collaborating with terrorists.

It is high time that this highly subversive, terror-supporting crime syndicate is dismantled and brought to trial.
Anti-Islam BillsÂ ‘Allow People to Vilify Islam’
When Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly approved a 2010 ballot measure that prohibits state courts from considering Islamic law, or Shariah,Â the Council of American-Islamic Relations filed a lawsuitÂ within two days challenging the constitutionality of the measure, and won. … “These bills don’t have any real-world effect. Their only purpose is to allow people to vilify Islam,” said Corey Saylor, CAIR’s legislative affairs director, of the more recent bills. … The driving force behind these new versions of anti-Shariah laws is “anti-Muslim bigotry plain and simple,” said Daniel Mach of the ACLU.Â (Read more)
CAIR to File Complaint Over MN Judge’s Questioning on ‘Sharia’
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/17/13) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, said today that it plans to file a complaint against a Minnesota judge who inappropriately questioned defendants on their religious beliefs and equated mainstream Islamic principles with terrorism.
Before sentencing two Muslim women to lengthy prison terms yesterday, U.S. District Judge Michael Davis asked each woman if she supported “jihad, suicide bombings and Sharia law.” Judge Davis also asked, “Does she understand there are some Muslim women who wear dresses or short skirts?” Davis said he was trying to decide whether the defendants would “support terrorist causes” when they are released from prison. The questions reportedly drew audible reactions in a courtroom packed with Muslim spectators.

“It is misguided and unethical for a judge to reference an individual’s general support of mainstream Islamic principles, known as Sharia, during sentencing to determine a defendant’s future dangerousness,” saidÂ CAIR Staff Attorney Gadeir Abbas. “By also linking modest dress to a propensity for violence, the judge revealed a disturbing bias that may have impacted his decisions in this case and his sentencing of the defendants.”
Abbas said CAIR would file a complaint based on the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act of 1980, 28 U.S.C. Â§Â§ 351-364, and Rules for Judicial-Conduct and Judicial-Disability Proceedings, 248 F.R.D. 674 (2008).
He added that CAIR’s complaint will not deal with the specifics of the cases or the charges against the defendants, but with the action of the judge in inappropriately questioning the defendants on their views about Sharia and modest attire, both of which are irrelevant to their cases.
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
