In the wake of revelations that the Boston Marathon Bombers were engaged in Jihad, or holy war, CAIR held a press conference in Chicago today to remind Americans that this has nothing to do with Islam.
The Council on American Islamic Relations again offered sympathy to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing on Friday, but added a plea for Americans not to generalize and conclude that Muslim teachings influenced the suspect in any way.
Too bad for CAIR, the Boston Bombers disagree.
CAIR is only vocal about condemning the alleged “backlash” to Jihad terrorism, but never the Jihad terrorism itself.
Citing acts of violence in Boston and New York, Rehab blamed Islamophobic forces for inciting hate crimes. He said that phenomenon poses a bigger threat than “innocently ignorant individuals.”
Pointing to the Jewish leader and pastor by his side at the news conference, he said Muslims have discovered a powerful source of support since the September 11 terrorist attacks.
“Friends of Muslims are emerging as a great force in America,” he said. “American people are fed up with the dumbing down of America.”
You got that America? CAIR just called you dumb.
