DEFENDING THE WEST
Kowtowing to CAIR – this time in Tampa
Exclusive: Pamela Geller describes revelatory bus ads scheduled to run this month
The mainstream media in Florida glowingly reported recently on how Tampa’s Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) Board of Directors reversed its earlier refusal of a bus ad from the Florida chapter of the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). They generally misrepresented the new “acceptance” by HART, making the HART board look like a bunch of big hairy Islamophobes for rejecting Hamas-CAIR’s cynical and deceptive #myjihad ad campaign.
Yet true to form for the mainstream media, they haven’t had a word to say about our new AFDI ad campaign that tells the truth about CAIR and offers help for girls who fear they might become the victim of an Islamic honor killing. Despite the fact that the Florida media wrote about the new CAIR campaign, literally running CAIR’s press release as if it were news, not one, not one Florida paper reported on our new ad campaign.
Fearing what? That their readers might learn something true about CAIR and its real motives?
CAIR’s new campaign advanced “embracing diversity,” but there is no such diversity in their real agenda: imposing Shariah. There is no diversity under the Shariah, as evidenced by the recent Muslim massacres in Kenya, Nigeria, Peshawar – this slaughtering of kuffar was going on at the same time CAIR’s campaign was announced.
As Robert Spencer has pointed out, CAIR is not really the civil-rights organization it claims to be: “CAIR is actually an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case – so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has ever been implemented.”
Our honor-killing ad features heart-rending photos of girls who have been murdered in honor killings and offers help to girls who are threatened. It is part of our ongoing campaign to raise awareness and bring a stop to the phenomenon of honor killing. These girls have rights, too, they’re human beings, and yet they’re completely forgotten in our politically correct culture. We’re standing for the human rights of these girls.
