CAIR: Anti-FBI Poster Is Misunderstood

From Fox News:

CAIR Says Poster Warning Against Helping FBI is Misinterpreted

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said it will remove a poster from the group’s website promoting an upcoming conference that encourages people not to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The poster, which appeared on the website of CAIR’s California chapter, features a sinister-looking FBI agent with the headlines “Build a Wall of Resistance” and “Don’t Talk to the FBI.” The poster was designed in the late 1970s or early 1980s and has been reproduced by various groups and activists since then in response to alleged harassment by the FBI and to protest grand jury subpoenas.

“I think it’s subject to misinterpretation,” spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told Fox News Radio when speaking about the poster. “We decided out of extreme caution to take it down.”

How very considerate of them. They certainly are quite ‘moderate.’

The poster was promoting a conference called “FBI Raids and Grand Jury Subpoenas: Know Your Rights and Defend Our Communities.” The keynote speaker is Hatem [sic] Abudayyeh, identified by CAIR as an activist and Palestinian community leader whose home was allegedly raided by federal agents in September.

The conference is scheduled for Feb. 9 at the East Side Cultural Center in Oakland.

Hooper conceded the poster “crosses the line,” but refused to renounce the artwork and blamed critics for fomenting what he called a manufactured controversy.

Yes, the firestorm about this has been quite out of hand.

“The entire American-Muslim community is under the microscope right now with a cottage industry of Muslim bashers,” he said. “We’re used to this kind of attack by the Islamophobic hate machine and in this case there is some justification in terms of the possibility of misinterpretation of this poster.”

What a gentle way to refer to one’s critics.

Hooper said CAIR is just one of many co-sponsors of the event and he had no idea who was responsible for the artwork. Hooper said he was unable to provide a list of the other co-sponsors

But there are a lot of them. Would Mr. Hooper lie?

An FBI spokesperson told Fox News Radio they were aware of the poster but would not comment

We’re sure Mr. Holder will be getting right on this, any minute now.

    CAIR is anti American. That much I understand.

    Know Islam———-Know Violence

    NO Islam————-NO Violence

    This is a wonderful example of that old adage: ” Don’t piss on my leg and try to tell me it’s raining”. CAIR has a lot of people’s legs soaking wet.

    Maybe Eric Holder will switch texts from 2 Corinthians to Genesis 4, v. 5 and 8 wherein ” … and Cain rose up and slew his brother … and his brother’s blood cries out from the ground”

    Maybe? You think? I mean, he’s in a Bible quoting mood these days. Might as well call a Cain a Cain.

    I understand …….. “LOUD & CLEAR!!!!”
    Hate goes both ways, infidel haters!

    Let’s start our own campaign: Don’t talk to or do business with an Arab. Build a wall to keep them out of our country.

    CAIR, is just disappointed with the recent muslims in America whose bomb attacks have been foiled by the FBI. Darn. They will just have to recruit higher ranking muslim extremists in the U.S. to take us over.

    You just don’t ever hear or see muslims speaking out against extremism. All the american muslims mafia
    does is hold activities to take over. You’ll never see a seminar or training program at a mosque teaching people a new Islam. The original Arabic version is the true one. And being able to memorize it and recite it
    is more honoring to allah.

    The muslims are not just trying to covert Americans to Islam, they are teaching them the Arabic language.
    Because, all the Koran translations that Americans can get access to are all watered down, missing chunks of scriptures. They lure with a less violent version, then they teach Arabic .

    loose interpretations for a scripture: adultery, lewd behavior, unacceptable behavior, offensive,

    loose interpretations for punishment for the above woman: stone her to death. 100 beatings & lock her in her home until she dies? and 100 lashes, or 100 lashes, or beat lightly, and the most generous word I found is I quote “spank” the wife.

    I’m guessing this new growing scripture fad of keeping her locked in house til she died, is used here inn Amercia. The really kill the wife, but tell people she was lewd, and must never leave her home as long as she lives. What? You want to see her. Of course allah says she can’t be seen by anyone. You would be impure if your eyes glazed upon the unclean woman we are punishing.

    Crazy Arabs In the Republic

    And now Obama is also directing the USPS to print and circulate a stamp to remember and HONOR the EID muslim holiday. The arabic writing and symbols are only slightly decreased to include hearts and a butterfly. You KNOW that he will never support one that celebrates any Christian holiday….what a crock!!

  9. hushpuppy says:

    Obama can deny he’s a muslim all he wants, but his actions speak louder than words. That big dinner he threw for his fellow jihadists muslims at the WH recently vs the sour looks on his puss and the I-smell-shit look on Mooch-elle wishing Jewish people a Happy Sukkot.

    Where was the extravagant Jewish New Year dinner party for them? Oh yeah, almost forgot: muslims hate Jews and aren’t supposed to dine with them, they’re supposed to kill them. Silly moi.

    When he was in Cairo, he declared himself a muslim to his muslim brotherhood brothers and told them to keep it to themselves.

    He sure is good a shoveling taqqiya!

    Wonder why he didn’t commission a postal stamp like Canada did to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Israel (even though the country has been called Israel for over 4 millenia!).

    A nice intertwined flag of Israel and US would have been nice, or even a Menorah to commemorate the miracle of one day’s oil burning for 8 days… or how about …

    ..never mind….wishful thinking again…. *sigh*
