CAIR Mistress Praises Radical Islam- Bashes Secular Islam Summit!
UPDATE: This article by Washington Post writer Genieve Abdo is factually incorrect!
–Ayaan Hirsi Ali did not attend the Secular Islam Summit as was reported by Abdo.
The Washington Post‘s CAIR Mistress, Genieve Abdo, praises radical Islam and bashes the Secular Islam Summit that promoted dialogue and reform in the Muslim community.
CAIR mistress, Geneive Abdo.
Obviously, this Washington Post writer would rather see more terrorist attacks and less dialogue in the Muslim community!
A More Islamic Islam
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A small group of self-proclaimed secular Muslims from North America and elsewhere gathered in St. Petersburg recently for what they billed as a new global movement to correct the assumed wrongs of Islam and call for an Islamic Reformation.
Across the state in Fort Lauderdale, Muslim leaders from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Washington-based advocacy group whose members the “secular” Muslims claim are radicals, denounced any notion of a Reformation as another attempt by the West to impose its history and philosophy on the Islamic world.
No honey… It’s just that some of us are tired of reading reports about radical Islamists blowing up chlorine trucks and murdering hundreds of innocent Muslims and a few non-Muslims in their quest for world domination!
The self-proclaimed secularists represent only a small minority of Muslims. The views among religious Muslims from CAIR more closely reflect the views of the majority, not only in the United States but worldwide. Yet Western media, governments and neoconservative pundits pay more attention to the secular minority.
The St. Petersburg convention is but one example: It was carried live on Glenn Beck’s conservative CNN show. Some of the organizers and speakers at the convention are well known thanks to the media spotlight: Irshad Manji, author of “The Trouble With Islam,” and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the former Dutch parliamentarian and author of “Infidel,” were but a few there claiming to have suffered personally at the hands of “radical” Islam. One participant, Wafa Sultan, declared on Glenn Beck’s show that she doesn’t “see any difference between radical Islam and regular Islam.”
The secular Muslim agenda is promoted because these ideas reflect a Western vision for the future of Islam.
How sad. The summit was carried by Glenn Beck and not a mention on any of the major networks- Although, Aljazeera did a report on the conference, and yet this upset the CAIR mistress.
I wonder how this type of article would have played out in WW II?
