Anti-Jihad Group to Take on CAIR with Tampa Bus Ads Pamela Geller, Breitbart News

The Hamas-linked
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is crowing about its victory in
Tampa, where transit officials reversed an earlier ban to allow this deceptive
Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood group to advertise on its buses. And so
my human rights organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), is
launching our own public service bus ad campaign in Tampa to offer help for
girls in danger of honor killing and to truth about Hamas-CAIR.

The ads have
been submitted to Tampa transit officials and will begin running on buses on
October 21.

The honor
killing ad features heart-rending photos of girls who have been murdered in
honor killings, and offers help to girls who are threatened. It is part of our
ongoing campaign to raise awareness and bring a stop to the phenomenon of honor
killing. These girls have rights, too, they’re human beings, and yet they’re
completely forgotten in our politically correct culture. We’re standing for the
human rights of these girls.

The CAIR ads are
a response to CAIR’s own ad campaign, which Tampa officials recently approved. Samantha
L. Bowden, Communications and Outreach Director of CAIR-Tampa, said: “We got to
set the record straight of who we are and what we do.”

I totally agree. We do have to set the record straight on
who CAIR really is and what they do. That’s why we are running our ads.

These ads are necessary because, as Robert Spencer has
pointed out, CAIR is not really the civil rights organization it claims to be:
“CAIR is actually an unindicted
co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case
— so named by the
Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused
Hamas and Hizballah. Several former
CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror
CAIR’s California
chapter distributed a poster
telling Muslims not to talk to the
FBI. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has ever been

Our AFDI ads feature several prominent critics of CAIR, as
well as victims of the harassment that has been characteristic of the
organization’s response to those it perceives as standing in the way of its
aims. These include:

1. Muslims who came to CAIR for legal help and are now suing
CAIR for mishandling their cases and defrauding them:

  1. “It was devastating. I was taken by
    someone who was supposed to care and represent my needs.” — Bayenah Nur, who
    went to CAIR for help and is now suing CAIR
  2. “CAIR represented itself as the
    nation’s premier civil rights law firm to defend Muslims. Instead, they
    defrauded me and then cheated me afterwards.” — Iftikhar Saiyed, a Muslim who
    went to CAIR for employment discrimination

2. Lawmakers and law enforcement officials who have told the
truth about CAIR:

  1. CAIR “has ties to terrorism” and
    “intimate links with Hamas" — Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY)
  2. “CAIR, its leaders, and its
    activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.” — Steven
    Pomerantz, Former FBI Chief of Counterterrorism

3. Revealing statements by CAIR’s own leaders:

  1. “WHO CARES?" — CAIR's National
    Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper when asked if American Muslims were
    among the Kenya mall jihad mass murderers
  2. “Islam isn’t in America to be equal
    to any other faith, but to become dominant,” and “The Koran, the Muslim book of
    scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only
    accepted religion on Earth.” – CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board Chairman
    Omar Ahmad

A victim of CAIR’s opposition to counterterror efforts:

CAIR: “They lie about my life most
of the time and try to destroy my character, my capability, and my trust in the
community.” — Abdirizak Bihi, Somali Muslim anti-terror leader in Minnesota
who tried to stop recruitment by al-Shabaab, the murderous jihad terror group
behind the Kenya mall massacre, in Minnesota, and was attacked by CAIR for
doing so

This new
campaign is part of our ongoing efforts at AFDI to defend the freedom of speech
– as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of “blasphemy” and “slander,” which are
used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism; the
freedom of conscience – as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy; and
the equality of rights of all people before the law – as opposed to Sharia’s
institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.

It’s a fight we
should all be fighting.
