From rational reader Barbara;
Any chance you and your fellow bloggers will get behind Handel. Being from Fort Worth, TX I don’t listen to Bill Handel in California. However, I firmly stand behind what he is requiring those who are demanding an apology.
I am tired of bowing down to those who are terrorists – and to be a Muslim is to be a terrorist because there aren’t a lot of Muslims denouncing terrorism – and to be a Muslim is to hate Israel which is totally unacceptable.
My email to Bill Handel this evening was:
PLEASE DON’T BACK DOWN – DON’T GIVE INTO PRESSURE – APOLOGIZE IF AND ONLY IF THEY MEET YOUR DEMANDS FOR APOLOGIES.
I am tired of hearing how flight attendants flying into Muslim countries now have to dress like a Muslim upon arrival. Are there Muslim flight attendants flying into our country and do they have to dress like Americans upon arrival?
I truly don’t know when the Muslim people became the standard by which we all should live.
Barbara I could not agree with you more. ATLAS READERS PLEASE DO SAME. Email Handel here: firstname.lastname@example.org, News Director here: email@example.com all other contact info here.
Cair strikes again and read the whole ludicrous piece here;
So, CAIR has asked me for an apology for making fun of Muslims. Or in this case, specifically, for making light of the fact that hundreds of Muslims died while performing their annual pilgrimage to Mecca, and I was wrong in describing the event as a “stampede.” Although, I don’t know what other word you would use, when you have hundreds of people…stampeding, but so be it. And, characterizing Islam as a “strange religion…I sure did…I characterize Judaism as a strange religion, I characterize Catholicism as a strange religion, and every other religion as a strange religion, across the board. But, I guess when you are an Islamic organization; all you care about is, when I make fun of that particular religion. And I portray Muslims as Anti-Semites. Yeah, I got to apologize for that one, because I don’t know where the hell I ever got the idea that Muslims are Anti-Semites. Where would I ever get that idea?!! You’re right, you’re right; I guess I manufactured that out of a whole cloth.
This is a man you could love................he takes on CAIR here;
I would like reporters, media, print, radio, television reporters, to ask CAIR…how do you respond to Handel? You’ve demanded that Handel apologize, Handel has come back and said, I’ll be more than happy to apologize, if you denounce bombings as terrorism. The way the do it, is bombings against Israelis is that of a freedom fighter. And attacks from Israelis to Palestinians are terrorism. See how that works? Osama Bin Laden is a freedom fighter, to these people. The attacks on civilians are simply a revolution, to get out the bad guys. I want reporters to ask CAIR, respond! Do you denounce all bombings as terrorism, doesn’t matter of political motivation, doesn’t matter if an Israeli does it, doesn’t matter if a Palestinian does it, doesn’t matter if a Chinese guy does it, doesn’t matter if an Irish Republican Army guy does it, it is terrorism, if the victims are innocent civilians. Number two; Israel is a sovereign nation recognized by the world, has a right to exist. And you’ve never had any ties to anybody associated with terrorism…Hamas, Islamic jihad, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda. I’d love to see that. Then you get your apology. By the way, we have called CAIR, all through the weekend, left messages to their communications director, and we have not gotten a response. I would like to them to come, and respond on the AIR, and respond to these charges. I’m sure their response will be, that’s not the issue. Yes, it is the issue. I’ll be more than happy to talk about your issue if you talk about my issue. Maybe, they’ll shock me. You are invited to come on the show, and respond, because I am accusing you of all three of those allegations, and I’d like you to respond.
Bill we stand with you. Never give up, never give in. CAIR is the enemy.
