Hamas US affiliate, CAIR, has once again showed its true face, unmosqued. The killing of Anwar al-Awlaki is one of the great victories in jihad's war in America. Show them some love today!
The enemy within is agitating against this victory in defense of freedom. Hamas-linked CAIR is agitating for jihad: "While a voice of hate has been eliminated, we urge our nation's leaders to address the constitutional issues raised by the assassination of American citizens without due process of law."
Anwar Al-Awlaki was the imam to jihad. Anwar al-Awlaki provided for spiritual guidance for the 911 Muslim terrorists at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va. (the subject of a Congressional probe). Al-Awlaki inspired the Fort Hood jihadi, Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder, and the devout Muslim who pled guilty to the Times Square bombing attempt. Al-Awlaki was also said to have been involved in mail bombs addressed to Chicago-area synagogues, packages intercepted in Dubai and Europe in October 2010.
So slick was al-Awlaki that he was invited to dine at the Pentagon as a guest of the Department of Defense, more than once. We see this repeatedly. The violent jihad and the stealth jihad, deceiving to advance Islam. The NY Times loved this killer.
And this is the same deception that unindicted co-conspirator CAIR engages in to advance Islamic supremcism and destroy our infidel freedoms.
By their fruits we shall know them, and so we know CAIR. The US Department of Justice scuttled the prosecution of Muslim Brotherhood groups named in the largest Hamas terror funding trial in our nation's history. CAIR was one of them. GOP candidates must campaign on the promise to pursue those prosecutions.

This just went out in the "American Muslim News Briefs" email from the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR):CAIR: Al-Awlaki's Calls to Violence Rejected by U.S. Muslims Civil rights group concerned about constitutional issues raised by assassination of American citizen
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 9/30/11) -- A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today reiterated that the calls to violence made by Anwar al-Awlaki, who has reportedly been killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen, have been firmly rejected by American Muslims.
In a statement reacting to al-Awlaki's death, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said:
"As we have stated repeatedly in the past, the American Muslim community firmly repudiated Anwar al-Awlaki's incitement to violence, which occurred after he left the United States. While a voice of hate has been eliminated, we urge our nation's leaders to address the constitutional issues raised by the assassination of American citizens without due process of law."

[Get the propaganda right, tools]
You got it, Ibe. But once again Hamas-linked CAIR reveals its true colors. It denounces al-Awlaki as a "voice of hate" (note that that is the same language it uses of anti-jihadists who, unlike al-Awlaki, never conspired with anyone to commit mass murder or approved of any kind of violence), but is "concerned" that "constitutional issues" have been "raised by the assassination of American citizens without due process of law."
Anwar al-Awlaki was an American citizen, yes. He was also a traitor. He was waging war against his native country. He was an enemy combatant. If an American citizen had gone to Germany and joined the Wehrmacht in 1942, and was killed in battle against American forces, would anyone have been raising "constitutional issues" over the killing?
Hamas-linked CAIR: this century's German-American Bund.
UPDATE: Steve Emerson here:
American-born al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was killed Friday by a U.S. airstrike in Yemen, administration officials say.
Awlaki, 40, was among the terrorist group's most charismatic figures, expanding al-Qaida's violent theology to a new pool of potential recruits by speaking and writing in English. He also was tied to a series of attacks, including the Fort Hood massacre and the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day 2009. An Associated Press dispatch calls the strike "the biggest U.S. success in hitting al-Qaida's leadership since the May killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan."
He was the most visible figure in al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, an al-Qaida affiliate considered the most dangerous and capable of carrying out terrorist attacks.
The strike hit a convoy carrying Awlaki and his bodyguards and may have been the result of cooperation from elements within Awlaki's own tribe.
"This is an extraordinary victory, a great moment for the United States. Al-Awlaki, has become more dangerous than bin Laden," U.S. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. and chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told Politico. "Over the last year, he's become the No. 1 terrorist in the world."
Another AP report indicates the attack killed a second American; former North Carolina resident Samir Khan, dealing a crushing blow to the al-Qaida affiliate's global recruiting operation. Khan published seven issues of Inspire magazine, the latest earlier this week. A slick publication with high quality graphics, Inspire offered a mix of articles glorifying jihad, offering religious justification for attacks and providing detailed instructions for "lone wolf" terrorists to wage attacks inside the United States.
A similar report of Awlaki's death in late 2009 turned out to be false. In this case, senior government officials have confirmed the attack and briefed congressional leaders like King. Officials also are hoping to match Awlaki's DNA with relatives still living in Virginia.
Before leaving America in 2002, Awlaki was considered a moderate voice. After the 9/11 attacks, National Public Radio cast him as someone who could "build bridges between Islam and the West," and a voice for moderation. He was even invited to give a presentation at the Pentagon in February 2002. But, as the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported last year, recorded sermons from that era show he already was spreading a radical message inside the United States.
