Exclusive: Pamela Geller defends guv's meeting with Gen. Boykin in face of CAIR demand
Hamas in America is on the warpath, and they are taking no prisoners. With the Muslim Brotherhood stooge in the White House, the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is taking any and every opportunity to attack and destroy the few brave enough to stand up and speak against jihad and Shariah. Now they are going after war heroes like retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, a great American and patriot. Nothing is sacred.
Last Thursday, Hamas-CAIR issued a press release demanding to know why Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney met with Boykin. The headline was “CAIR Asks Romney to Explain Meeting with Infamous Islamophobe: Muslim rights group questions why candidate willing to hold private meeting with anti-Muslim extremist.” The release asked Romney to “clarify his decision to meet privately with a key figure in the Islamophobia movement, retired Lt. Gen. William G. ‘Jerry’ Boykin.”
Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood groups like CAIR are foreign agents and should be treated as such. No one – not Romney or anyone else – should be bowing to demands from CAIR. Islam expert Robert Spencer sums it up: “CAIR operatives have repeatedly refusedtodenounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI.”
CAIR was also named unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. According to a captured internal document entered into evidence at that trial, CAIR’s parent organization, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which has since been shut down as a Hamas front, is part of a group of Muslim organizations in the U.S. that are among the Muslim Brotherhood’s like-minded “organizations of our friends.”
These groups share the common goal of dismantling American institutions, eroding our freedoms and ultimately turning the U.S. into a Shariah state. Their stated goal is “that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
Discover The Networks notes that Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram, the author of this document on strategies for conquering the U.S. for Islam, “was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the ‘grand jihad’ that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Shariah) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means. … At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating ‘the global Islamic state.’”
And they are doing it: This demand that Romney throw Boykin under the bus is part of that goal. CAIR is trying to establish the principle that American politicians and elected officials have to answer to them and make their positions on issues and their associations Shariah-compliant. And all too many politicians and officials are willing and even eager to comply. But every accommodation to CAIR gives way to more demands for still more accommodation of the most oppressive and brutal ideology on the face of the earth.
