American Muslim nails CAIR for its ideological support of Wahhabism

CAIR issued a statement on Tuesday praising "an anti-terror statement" made by the Saudi Cleric, the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh.
Al Sheikh "called for religious moderation and said Islam prohibits terrorism, extremism and injustice," in his sermon delivered on Monday to millions of pilgrims making The Hajj in Saudi Arabia, according to the release.

"'This statement from Islam's spiritual capital should put to rest once and for all the false claim that Muslim leaders do not condemn terrorism,'" said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

But M. Zuhdi Jasser, the president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), called CAIR's bluff.
"No previous single press release or statement by CAIR more clearly reveals its ideological ties and service to the Saudis, and their Wahhabi ideologues - and its willingness to use word games, deception and moral equivalence to avoid revealing its true objectives," Jasser writes in a column published Wednesday.

Jasser notes that the CAIR press release neglects to mention the rest of the Grand Mufti's sermon and "the mere condemnation of terrorism in this CAIR promoted sermon means nothing – because the sermon is otherwise chock full of inflammatory Muslim supremacism (Islamism) and anti-Western hatred."

Other excerpts of the Mufti's sermon include condemning the West and attributing causes for terrorism.

In his sermon, the Grand Mufti "insists the Islamic nation rejects terrorism as a deplorable crime, but that it is not the only crime. The problem, he says, is not just terrorism, but also poverty, unemployment, and diseases, stemming from global crises," according to an article published Monday by the Voice of America.

The cleric also said, "'Violence cannot be cured with violence and neither can terrorism be cured with force, but by lifting injustices levied on oppressed peoples.'"

That is "hardly a morally-clear condemnation of terrorism," Jasser writes. "Rather, it is a demagogic moral equivalency of barbaric acts committed by Al Qaeda, Hamas and other radical Islamists, which this radical sheikh insinuates are understandable by the acts of America and the West."
Taqiyyah. But at least some people know how to recognize it.

I spoke to Nihad personally and noted that it was curious for CAIR to condemn "Islamaphobia" when it feted Helen Thomas after her anti-Jewish know-nothing claim that "the Jews" should "go back where they came from." He hemmed and hawed and said you know, it's one thing for Juan Williams to blah blah and a ninety-year old women etc. And the discussion ended. But we can't help but think that precisely as agents of influence (OK, apologists for euphemism) of Arab supremacist strain of Islam, CAIR feted Helen because of her comments and to promote the storyline that American Jews who support Israel are traitors--but Saudi lobbyists are as American as apple pie.
