CAIR-CA: THE MAKING OF A BOXER REBELLION -
Sacramento Bee, 1/8/07
As a lifelong Democrat, I am shocked and appalled with the recent actions of Sen. Barbara Boxer in her attempts to rescind an award that she gave to the Sacramento chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Why, he had ties to terror. She did the responsible thing. You, as a patriotic American should be thrilled,
CAIR uh Mark.
CAIR is a mainstream, nonpartisan Muslim organization that encourages civic participation among Muslims such as voter registration and citizen education. CAIR is following the path of many other mainstream political empowerment groups, such as the League of Women Voters and the NAACP.
Non partisan? Ha! Name one Republican CAIR endorsed. And Chafee doesn't count. He's not even a RINO, he's a big pussy on the take for Arab $$$$$$$$.
However, Boxer has bowed to the pressure of the right-wing blogosphere that has attacked CAIR, not on the basis of facts or evidence, but out of malicious hatred and anti-Muslim bias. It is disappointing that our Democratic representative has taken such an undemocratic stand.
She righted a wrong. Blaming the blogs and blaming the Jooooooooooos
This story is a discouraging lesson for others seeking political empowerment. CAIR has done everything that we ask others to do in order to gain acceptance, yet even now, it is not fully accepted. What lesson does this teach other groups seeking recognition and acceptance?

Uh, which CAIR employee you think Faroukis related too?
Israel lobby has too much clout
Re "Boxer pulls Muslim award," Jan. 4: As a Jewish American and a supporter of Sen. Barbara Boxer, I say that it was wrong for her to withdraw the award that she previously gave to the Council on American Islamic Relations, which works to build bridges between Christians, Muslims, Jews and people of color. The article stated that Nihad Awad, CAIR's executive director in Washington, has condemned violence by all sides and that he even appeared with President Bush.
I doubt that Boxer even believes in her decision to withdraw the award. The problem is that the Israel lobby, consisting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and other organizations, has far too much influence on American policy in the Middle East. This policy of giving unconditional support to Israel is detrimental to the security of our country.
Blaming the Jooooooooooooooooooooos.
UPDATE: Joe Kaufman calls for Terrorist front CAIR to be shut down. Watch the video here.
