BREAKING NEWS! The spineless and gutless military caved to Hamas-tied CAIR. GRAHAM IS DISINVITED:
WASHINGTON – Christian evangelistsays the Army has withdrawn an invitation for him to appear at a special Pentagon prayer service.
In a statement Thursday, Graham said he regrets the Army's decision and will continue to pray for the troops.
Graham, the son of famed, in 2001 described Islam as evil. More recently, he has said he finds Islam offensive and wants Muslims to know that died for their sins.
A victory for CAIR and Major Hasan. Christians, Jews, unite and fight!
Hate sponsor CAIR National Executive Director
Nihad Awad said, "Franklin Graham's appearance [at the Pentagon] has the potential to
unit cohesion and morale through the promotion of distorted, intolerant
divisive views within military ranks." Is Awad threatening us with
another Major Hasan Fort Hood jihad massacre? There is an implied threat.
The jihadist infiltrators are feeling emboldened. You ain't seen nuthin yet, brothers and sisters. The forces of darkness are pressuring the already compromised Pentagon to cancel Franklin Graham. I hope Graham brings recent pictures of all the Christians and Jews murdered at the hands of jihad in Nigeria, Indonesia, Somalia, Lebanon, Israel, Iran, etc., about which CAIR has been diabolically silent.
It's OK for hateful and jihadist imams like Johari Abdul-Malik of the 911 terror mosque Dar al-Hijrah to give the opening prayer to the oldest elected state legislature at the state capital in Virginia, and it's OK that Obama's inauguration prayer was given by the president of a terror linked organization ... but Franklin Graham is the problem?
Franklin Graham is the solution. I pray he doesn't submit to Islamic thuggery and supremacism and retract, or that the mighty Pentagon doesn't quiver, cower, cry and cave to CAIR.
Here's the CAIR press release:
Action: Ask Pentagon to Drop Anti-Islam
Christian evangelist Franklin Graham claims Muslims 'enslaved by Islam'
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 4/22/10) – CAIR today called on American Muslims to join in the call for Pentagon officials to disinvite a scheduled speaker who has called Islam a "very evil and wicked religion" and this morning said Muslims are "enslaved by Islam."
Controversial Christian evangelist Franklin Graham is scheduled to speak May 6 -– the National Day of Prayer -- at the Pentagon. Military officials are considering whether to withdraw Graham's invitation after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation raised objections to his appearance.
In an interview today about the controversy on Fox News, Graham refused to revise his past comments that Islam is evil and claimed that Muslims are "enslaved by Islam."
"To have an individual who calls Islam evil and claims Muslims are enslaved by their faith speak at the Pentagon sends entirely the wrong message at a time when hundreds of thousands of our nation's military personnel are currently stationed in Muslim countries," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. "Franklin Graham's appearance has the potential to harm unit cohesion and moral through the promotion of distorted, intolerant and divisive views within military ranks."
Awad added that while CAIR supports the right of all American's to worship according to their personal preference and to follow the religious leader of their choice, Graham's message of intolerance and hate are not appropriate for a government venue such as the Pentagon.
In a 2009 CNN interview, Graham stated in part: "[T]rue Islam cannot be practiced in this country. You can't beat your wife. You cannot murder your children if you think they've committed adultery or something like that, which they do practice in these other countries...I don't agree with the teachings of Islam and I find it to be a very violent religion."
