Not surprisingly, Dennis Prager has been called every name in the “book” by lefty bloggers everywhere!! There are even some conversatives that don’t see the “hoop-la” over this issue (Koran vs. Bible) and have stated so!
There are still many of us out there that still see this as a “slap in the face” to America and the American people!! As is our right, we will continue to view this as an outrage in an attempt to protect our country from the “slippery slope” it is apparently headed down!!
But NOW, not surprisingly….CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has “jumped into the mix” calling for Dennis Prager’s (who is Jewish, by the way) removal from the US Holocaust Museum council for his “bigoted, intolerant and devisive views..”!!
WHAT????? Isn’t this the “pot calling the kettle black”….bigoted, intolerant and devisive..????
I think Mike Gallagher is right in his post, Dennis Prager being “targeted”? when he writes:
You gotta hand it to some of these groups: they have some nerve. After all, it takes a lot of gall for a Muslim to try and dictate to a Jewish organization who they should and shouldn’t have on their governing board.
Like the thousands of illegal immigrants waving Mexican flags in the streets of America this summer demanding “rights”, there seems to be no shortage of “hutzpuh” on the part of some Muslim activists in our country.
Dennis Prager in his article “A response to my many critics-and a solution” shows he is neither bigoted nor racist! It appears from “some” of the comments to his article there are those that will not see the truth if it slaps them in the face!!
He also makes a point in stating:
I am for no law to be passed to prevent Keith Ellison or anyone else from bringing any book he wants to his swearing-in, whether actual or ceremonial. But neither I nor tens of millions of other Americans will watch in silence as the Bible is replaced with another religious text for the first time since George Washington brought a Bible to his swearing-in. It is not I, but Keith Ellison, who has engaged in disuniting the country. ……
NOW…for those of you who applaud CAIR for getting involved, let’s not forget who and what CAIR is and has been!!
Their “vision and mission” statement: “CAIR’s vision is to be a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding. CAIR’s mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding”.
Sounds warm and fuzzy, huh???
Well, did you know that “Core Principal” #7 states: “CAIR believes the active pratice of Islam strenghtens the social and religious fabric of our nation”
Sooo…what “nation” are they speaking of?
Well, one CANNOT forget CAIRs involvement with terrorist organizations they continue to attempt to either “deny” or “distance themselves” from!!! Some facts some of you may have forgotten:
Los Angeles (10/28/98) – CAIR is calling on Los Angeles-based KCOP Television, Inc., channel 13, to remove billboards deemed offensive to Muslims. The billboards, reportedly seen in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Gabriel, and other cities, feature a picture of Usama Bin Laden with the headline “the sworn enemy.”
CAIR consistently defends other militant Islamic terrorists too. The conviction of the perpetrators of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing it deemed “a travesty of justice.” The conviction of Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind sheikh who planned to blow up New York City landmarks, it called a “hate crime.”
On Feb. 2, 1995, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White named Siraj Wahhaj as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in the attempt to blow up New York City monuments. Yet CAIR deems him “one of the most respected Muslim leaders in America” and includes him on its advisory board.
…the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, Steven Pomerantz, concludes that “CAIR, its leaders and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.”
CAIR has defamed moderate Muslims who reject its extremist agenda, leading to death threats against them.
The head of CAIR’s Los Angeles office, Hussam Ayloush, routinely uses the term “zionazi” when referring to Israelis. CAIR co-hosted an event in May 1998 at which an Egyptian militant Islamic leader, Wagdi Ghunaym, called Jews the “descendants of the apes.”

And the scariest yet:
CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad told a crowd of California Muslims in July 1998, “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.”
There will be those of you that say, “that was then…this is now”! Don’t believe that for ONE second!! A leopard (especially THAT indoctrinated into their beliefs) don’t change their spots…they just hide them for awhile to “fit it”!!!
In my area, a year ago, a local radio talk show advocated a “Muslim March” through the streets with Americans from ALL backgrounds and nationalities marching with the muslims to denounce terrorism and their support for America..…and in the 2-3 months he attempted to put this together only 5, I repeat FIVE muslims offered to support this and march!! There were tons of others willing to march WITH THEM…but alas…what does THAT show also???
Soooo, THOSE of you who want to do nothing but bitch and complain about Dennis Prager, me or others who are attempting to defend our national sovereignty, go right ahead…you may be kicking and screaming all the way to a mosque one day!!!!
