I was on FOX news tonight. Kimberly Guilfoyle was subbing (thank gawd) for Geraldo the clown. They had me on to discuss the 911 mega mosque at Ground Zero, and who was my adversary? Niwad Awad, Hamas supporter and founder of the unindicted co-conspirator, Hamas-linked, Muslim Brotherhood front CAIR.
Awad was quoted as saying at Barry University
“I am a supporter of the Hamas movement.”
How can you tell Niwad Awad is lying? His lips are moving. And that the mosque is all about "freedom on religion." Yes, CAIR's position of freedom of religion was best illustrated in their vile response to the freedom buses and persecution of Rifqa Bary.
Worse yet, he has the audacity to say that 911 had nothing to do with Islam.
Awad wrote in the Muslim World Monitor that the 1994 trial which
resulted in the conviction of four Islamic terrorists who had perpetrated the
previous year's World Trade Center bombing was “a travesty of justice.”
Notwithstanding the confessions of the terrorists, Awad said: "There is ample
evidence indicating that both the Mossad [Israel’s intelligence agency] and the
Egyptian Intelligence played a role in the explosion."
In a 1994
interview with newsman Mike Wallace, Awad was asked if he supported the
“military undertakings of Hamas,”
to which he replied: “The United
Nations Charter grants people who are under occupation [the right] to defend
themselves against illegal occupation.” That same year, Awad declared at a Barry
University meeting, "I am a supporter of the Hamas movement.”
2001 Awad participated in a protest
outside the State Department and the White House, condemning U.S. support for
Israel’s allegedly repressive government. In conjunction with this
demonstration, several organizations — including CAIR, IAP, American
Muslims for Jerusalem, the Muslim
Public Affairs Council, the American
Muslim Council, and the Muslim
American Society — released a statement that read: “Before there can be any
lasting peace in the region, America must finally come to terms with the real
sources of violence, namely: 1) The brutal Israeli occupation of Palestinian
land, 2) The continued expansion of settlements, 3) The denial of the right of
return for Palestinian refugees, [and] 4) The billions of American taxpayer
dollars that help finance Israel's occupation. Any other course of action is a
recipe for unending strife and instability.”
In September 2003, Awad and
CAIR Chairman Omar
Ahmad were invited to testify at hearings held by the Senate Judiciary
Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology, and Homeland Security; both men declined
In an August 2006 interview on C-SPAN's
Washington Journal, Awad suggested that suicide bombings are
understandable attempts to address political injustices and do not have any
inherent connection to radical Islam. Referring to the writing of political
scientist Robert Pape on the topic, Awad stated: “[Pape] found out that [suicide
terrorism] has more to do with occupations and fighting injustice than
religion.” (more here)
