Pipes strikes back
Daniel Pipes, in his latest column, has struck back at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR, apologists and supporters of militant Islam, have campaigned furiously to block Pipes' nomination to the US Institute of Peace-- a post that he is probably most qualified to fill. CAIR does not like Pipes because he speaks the truth about fanatical Islam, and he's not intimidated by their scare tactics and smear campaigns. He clearly distinguishes between Islam as a whole and the fanatical Islamists, but CAIR paints him as an "Islamophobe", most likely because CAIR is America's biggest supporter of the fanatics.
This column is right on. CAIR needs to be invalidated, pushed aside. They, like Michael Moore to the left and Michael Savage to the right, do more harm to their cause than good. And they pose a tremendous threat to the balance in this country with their agenda and aspirations of a Muslim United States.
From Pipes' column, Islam's Image Problem:
What explains this increasingly worried attitude? Clearly, much of it follows on the on-going reality of terrorism, hate-filled statements and other problems tied to militant Islam around the globe. But some of it also results from the problems concerning militant Islam's control of the institutions of American Muslim life.
So Americans, and our government, need to do two things:
1. Support Daniel Pipes' nomination to the US Institute of Peace. Write a letter to your Representative and Senator. He is qualified like no other for this position, and he refuses to sugar-coat the ugly reality of fanatical Islam.
2. Reject CAIR as a legitimate voice in this country. They are terrorist-supporting, apologetic group bent on smearing those who vocally oppose them and the fanatics that they support. They want Muslims to have a superior place in this country, and push an agenda where their religion would be the driving force of our culture.
Pipes speaks the truth, CAIR seeks to suppress it. Americans need to be educated and fight the PC urge, before CAIR's influence becomes too great.
