Good piece on the Islamic antisemitism defacement of our “truth about CAIR” ads over at Truth Revolt.
“Anti-CAIR Ad Defaced With Swastikas, Anti-Semitic Vandalism,” Daniel Mael, Truth Revolt, May 28 2014
“The vandalism demonstrates yet again the desperate insecurity and authoritarian tendencies of the foes of the U.S., Israel and freedom.”
A new series of anti-CAIR advertisements from Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative has been defaced with anti-Semitic vandalism, including Nazi swastikas and the phrases “No to Zionism” and “Long live Palestine”:
Geller told TruthRevolt:
It’s very telling that their vandalism is anti-Semitic.The vandalism demonstrates yet again the desperate insecurity and authoritarian tendencies of the foes of the U.S., Israel and freedom. The supporters of Hamas-tied CAIR and the Palestinian jihad cannot answer our arguments or refute our assertions. They cannot debate so they destroy. All that is left to them is to try to silence us forcibly by vandalizing our printed messages and smearing and defaming the messenger. It is the tactic of thugs and fascists, and should be opposed by all free people.
She also told TruthRevolt that she anticipated such reaction to the posters: “I printed up a stack of these posters, knowing how the destroyers operate. This ad is being replaced today, as will any other … I made an even bigger “Truth About CAIR” buy in other US cities. So Hamas-CAIR better rent a bus. Road trip!”
CAIR has attacked Geller and denies that they are connected to Hamas and terrorism, saying, “The short answer to this is guilt by association. CAIR has hundreds of board members and employees and thousands of supporters. It would be illogical and unfair to hold CAIR responsible for the personal activities of all these people.” CAIR even featured Geller in an Islamophobia profile. Reached via email, Geller denied these charges and defended herself from CAIR’s accusations on Wednesday afternoon:
Was it a “few select members” that got CAIR named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case? Was it a “few select members” that led a California chapter of CAIR to put up posters exhorting Muslims not to talk to the FBI? Was it a “few select members” who led CAIR’s co-founder and longtime Board Chairman Omar Ahmad to say: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth”? Was it a “few select members” who led CAIR’s spokesman Ibrahim Hooper to say that he would like to see “the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future”? Was it a “few select members” that led former CAIR Board member Ihsan Bagby to say: “Ultimately, we (Muslims) can never be full citizens of this country…because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country”? What about Mustafa Carroll of CAIR-Texas, who said: “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land”? Or Dawud Walid of CAIR-Michigan, who said: “Did Mohammed order the killing of Jews? He didn’t order it. Sa’ad ibn Mu’aadh (RA) ordered that punishment. It was a correct one”?
Hamas-CAIR has opposed virtually every counterterror measure proposed or enacted. Its leaders have made numerous supremacist statements. The information in my ad is only the tip of the iceberg.
They cannot refute so they name-call and smear. It’s a tactic — distract and destroy.
