Islamist Group CAIR Calls on Ben Carson to Withdraw from Presidential Race


The Council on American-Islamic Relations, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2004 Holy Land Foundation terror-funding case, announced on Sunday the group will be calling on Dr. Ben Carson to drop out of the race for the Republican Party presidential nomination over Carson’s statement he would not support having a Muslim as U.S. president.

Carson made his statement in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday morning, explaining he does not believe the values of Islam are consistent with the Constitution of the United States.

CAIR made the announcement in a press release (excerpted below) sent out Sunday afternoon on PR Newswire.

“On Monday, September 21 (at 11 .am.), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, will hold a news conference at its Capitol Hill headquarters to call on Republican candidate Ben Carson to withdraw from the presidential race for saying today that Islam is “inconsistent” with the Constitution and that a Muslim should not be elected president.

…””Mr. Carson clearly does not understand or care about the Constitution, which clearly states that ‘no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office,'” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “We call on our nation’s political leaders – across the political spectrum – to repudiate these unconstitutional and un-American statements and for Mr. Carson to withdraw from the presidential race.”

“He said this incident demonstrates why the Constitution is needed to protect Americans of all faiths.”

CAIR’s call for Carson to withdraw from the GOP presidential race may violate the group’s 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status which bars such entities from making statements in support of or in opposition to political candidates.

“Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office…”

The link CAIR included at the bottom of its press release targeting Dr. Carson goes to The donation page for states: “CAIR Foundation is a 501(c)(3) under federal tax guidelines. TAX ID: 77-0646756”

CAIR posted a video clip to YouTube of Carson’s remarks made on Meet the Press to host Chuck Todd on Sunday.

NBC posted a transcript of Meet The Press. Carson’s comments are below.

CHUCK TODD: Let me wrap this up by finally dealing with what’s been going on, Donald Trump, and a deal with a questioner that claimed that the president was Muslim. Let me ask you the question this way: Should a President’s faith matter? Should your faith matter to voters?

DR. BEN CARSON: Well, I guess it depends on what that faith is. If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the constitution, no problem.

CHUCK TODD: So do you believe that Islam is consistent with the constitution?

DR. BEN CARSON: No, I don’t, I do not.


DR. BEN CARSON: I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.

CHUCK TODD: And would you ever consider voting for a Muslim for Congress?

DR. BEN CARSON: Congress is a different story, but it depends on who that Muslim is and what their policies are, just as it depends on what anybody else says, you know. And, you know, if there’s somebody who’s of any faith, but they say things, and their life has been consistent with things that will elevate this nation and make it possible for everybody to succeed, and bring peace and harmony, then I’m with them.

CHUCK TODD: And I take it you believe the president was born in the United States and is a Christian?

DR. BEN CARSON: I believe that he is. I have no reason to doubt what he says.

CHUCK TODD: All right, Dr. Carson I will leave it there, I look forward to speaking with you again soon.

DR. BEN CARSON: All right, thank you very much.

UPDATE: Dr. Carson stood by his comments in an interview with The Hill published Sunday evening excerpted below.

““I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”

“Carson said that the only exception he’d make would be if the Muslim running for office “publicly rejected all the tenants of Sharia and lived a life consistent with that.”

““Then I wouldn’t have any problem,” he said.

“However, on several occasions Carson mentioned “Taqiya,” a practice in Shia Islam in which a Muslim can mislead nonbelievers about the nature of their faith to avoid persecution.

““Taqiya is a component of Shia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals,” Carson said.”

    I call on CAIR to cease political comments or lose their religious exemption.

  • dave0987

    Lol, like Hussein would let that happen.

    I agree with the sentiment though, sure.

  • dave0987

    I’ve got my issues with Carson, but he’s as right as rain on this. Islam is far more than just a mere “religion” and thankfully millions continue to recognize that.

  • iamwinstonsmith

    Considering CAIR’s support consists only of the most radical of the liberals, I consider this an endorsement for Carson.

  • Donna

    maybe if Trump is elected he can look into it.

  • Tr00th

    Carson told the truth. Islam is an evil, false religion which if followed as it dictates is a danger to every non-Muslim, as well as a danger to the soul of everyone who follows it. Oh, and Graham also called for Dr Carson to withdraw. I’ve been wondering when Graham’d get a clue and drop out.

    We can’t walk around with blinders on. Call it for what it is.

    Not all Muslims are bad people. But, the bad people that currently want to kill us are Muslims.

    We have to be proactive. If you don’t like it, you’re free to move elsewhere (I hear Somalia is beautiful this time of year).

    If Ben Carson does anything other than tell CAIR and the entire the Left to stuff it, then I’ve lost all respect for him. If he caves on this, he’ll cave on almost everything.

  • kazzer66

    Carson was absolutely correct.

  • dogwonder

    Carson is correct, the Koran forbids laws that are independent of Sharia Law our constitution is a violation of Sharia Law. No I wouldn’t vote for a Muslim president and I don’t care who I offend because Islam offends me.

  • Justme

    Carson made some disparaging remarks about Trump and his faith last week, but he did later apologize and say he shouldn’t have taken the bait. I’d be surprised if he really believes Obama’s a Christian, and I think there’s plenty of reason to doubt that, but Ben may just be leaving the bait alone. On the other comments, he’s right.

    This also made me think of Jeb’s hypocrisy. Jindal escalated ongoing personal attacks and inserted multiple attacks on Trump’s faith last week, denying he believed in God or read the Bible, despite what Trump said. When asked about Bobby’s crazy unChristian tirade, Jeb said he agreed with Jindal. In bold contrast, Jeb was all too happy to jump to defend Obama, a man who regularly blames his brother for everything and trashes conservatives and Christians, calling Obama a talented man and a Christian, things he’d never attribute to Trump.

    This election has really laid bare the truth about so many things and people. Just waiting to see if Carly will jump in with a bunch of praise for Islam and Muslims as she did in past speeches.

    CAIR is an Obama-sanctioned domestic terrorist group. They all need to be rounded up and either imprisoned or deported.

    CAIR has a religious exemption? Just for being muzzies?

  • Jim

    CAIR headquarters is in an office on Scott Blvd. in Santa Clara, CA, about 50 yards across the street from a mosque located on Sky Park Dr. That may be their “loophole”, the distance, but the founder of CAIR is deeply involved with that mosque, and to a moslem, there is no difference between church and state..

  • Patty

    Humm. So, no CAIR is asking for withdrawal of a Presidential candidate.

    Humm, Why didn’t we think of that when Obama who is a Muslim ran for Office?

    Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, the Idiots in the media who never spoke one word against “the One.” Funny, how this because of some person in the audience who asked the question about Obama. Where was all of this when Obama ran in the first place.

  • R-C

    Let’s see what he says in response to CAIR’s demand.

  • JY1

    I call on the IRS to immediately revoke CAIR’s religious exemption and after such time I don’t care if they endorse, harass, or comment to or about political candidates, because without that religious exemption they won’t last through the end of the first week anyway.

    I also call on the IRS to enforce CAIR’s tax debt retroactively from their date of founding through the date their religious exemption is revoked.

    Chilling: Top Imam Tells Muslim Refugees How to ‘Conquer’ Nations

  • Mike in Illinois

    While the judges, legislators or even president cannot ban a muslim from attaining the office of the Presidency, each and every voter has 100 control of their own votes and can choose electors based on whatever their hearts desire. A person can cast their votes for anyone but a redhead, or any woman but no man or only short people or, yes, even anyone but a muslim.
    Cair, like many Americans, simply doesn’t understand that the constitution doesn’t craft a situation where government dictates to people, indeed, the people are and have always been empowered to control government, and as our declaration presents quite perfectly, throw off and recreate entirely if we so choose.

    Cair is as backward as the supposed religion it portends to represent.

  • Think

    And of course CAIR and all their leftie supporters and media are running around spouting the false “religious test” argument. That reference means government itself cannot set up a religious test as a qualification. A voter can choose by any measure that matters to that individual, and any U.S. citizen can voice their opinion on this! I’m with Ben and go further; I would not vote for a Muslim, scientologist, or atheist president, and I have the freedom in the U.S. to hold that opinion, speak that opinion, and vote or not as I see fit. It’s as inane as the argument that since the govt must treat those charged with crimes as innocent until proven guilty, that people aren’t allowed to have or assert an opinion of someone’s guilt. Civics coursework has gone to heck in our crumbling country, and logic is rarely used.

  • Arizona Sailor

    Who the hell is CAIR?? Never heard of those morons.

    Islam is evil and it will bring nothing but death to the U.S.A. if we allow them into any position of power. Simple as that and that’s not being anti muslim that’s just telling the truth.

    –hopefully, that should add 10 POINTS to Carson’s polling numbers !!!

  • TheTriguy

    I’m not sure where the leader of CAIR got his quote but I am sure that the Constitution does say that the president must protect and defend the Constitution. My question is, which would a Muslim president support…the Constitution or Sharia law which directly opposes the Constitution on a number of vital issues such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion? I’d love to hear a practicing Muslim (who is also a U.S. Citizen) respond!

  • Linda Bond

    Sure he will look into a lot of things

  • Guest

    This infamous group of Muslims are trying to control who runs for President, proving Carson’s point. Each CAIR member, affiliate, or supporter should head to the Islamic Caliphate post haste where they can bask in the joy of sharia law.

  • Addison Jacobs

    Look at how Muslim countries are run. How do they treat women? How do they treat gays? How do they treat people of others faiths?

    It’s a fair statement to say that not that all Muslims would lead that way, but it is fair to say that the way Muslims chose to lead their own countries is not consistent with the US way of life.

    CAIR is simply a front for jizlamic terrorists. It has no more right to exist in the USA than Hams, much less enjoy tax-exempt status as a non-profit. The organization should be disbanded, outlawed and its officers at all levels investigated for any / all criminal acts, up to & including treason & terrorism. AND if found guilty of either of those, summarily executed.

    You’d better start caring about what’s going on in this Country.

  • ZZZzzzz

    Ben Carson has ZERO to apologize for and Lindsey Graham said he should too I just heard. You and CAIR need to both shut up. CAIR, the name Council on Islamic-American Relations sounds so innocent doesn’t it? No. They are a front group for Jihad and loaded with a bunch of terrorists, who infiltrate our schools, government, sue like crazy and behind that suitcase clock/bomb hoax too. Dr. Savage sued CAIR, things turned in his favor, but because of it he was banned in Britain. Is Britain going to ban Ben Carson now too? Oh wait, shouldn’t that be considered racist? Never mind.

    B. Hussein must be seething in his anger with both Carson & Trump right about now. I love it!!! The liberal progs are stupified at what to do next. Nothing they’re doing is working, but backfiring.

    YES. They DO sound INNOCENT.
    There is no ROOM in AMERICA or “our” CONSTITUTION….for ISLAM.

    Dr Carson is RIGHT….and AMERICA has got your Back Dr. Carson.

    If ANYONE disagrees the I Suggest YOU DO SOME RESEARCH. SERIOUS Research of Islam and it religious/political/laws “Blend” because it all goes AGAINST personal FREEDOMS and LIBERTY the United States Constitution affords it’s citizens.

  • acesandeights

    Yes, Carson is right. He’s not my candidate, but he is right on that point. And here’s the main thing. The Muslims believe that the 1st Amendment grants them the same right that it grants the rest of us; freedom of religion. That’s how they make inroads in America; a political movement wrapped in the cloak of ‘religion.’

    I’ve got news for them. The 1st Amendment to our Constitution doesn’t grant or give rights to anybody. The Constitution was written to SECURE the rights we Americans already had, rights given to us by our Creator God and found in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.

    And AMONG those rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – our rights are not enumerated. The Muslims don’t care about life. They kill with impunity. They want to kill the infidel (those who don’t accept their religion..And liberty? For whom? Not their women for sure or any women anywhere. And the pursuit of happiness? They pursue the caliphate; world wide domination of their brutal political, and barbaric ‘religion.’

    And don’t give me the ‘peaceful majority’ nonsense either. Watch this. Please.

    The Muslims don’t believe in our Creator God and our Bible. They believe in Allah, the Koran, and they have a culture of oppression, torture, and death; not at all compatible with our Constitution or with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. So they do not possess the rights they claim to have. Our rights have come from a source in which they do not believe, and the source in which they do believe does not even exist, because the first Amendment grants no rights at all.

    So no, America would be crazy to even entertain the idea that we would ‘accept’ a Muslim President. Having one pushed on us is altogether another can of worms. The enemies of our country are fine with the Muslim encroachment, or scared to death to oppose it, but real Conservative Americans have other ideas, and we had better stop being afraid to give them voice. Good for Ben Carson!

  • Lee Jan

    Christie tried to appoint a muslim attorney for Holy Land to our NJSC. The fact that he was an attorney for that terror organization just ‘slipped’ his mind and Christie thought he’d get away with the appointment. When it was revealed the nomination was withdrawn. Christie is not to be trusted.

    Like most invaders from failed civilizations they seek to take what they did not earn. They come to steal kill and destroy. They have not assimilated in any country they have invaded. Islam seeks to enslave and destroy and replace that which they could not create on their own. Immigration has to be shut down. No matter the cost.

    Good question. Seems that half of our country are and were then, Muslims/Muslim sympathizers; socialists, Communists, and the like. America was almost gone before I realized it was in danger. (2006) I believe in my heart that Trump is the only one who can turn it around. If he doesn’t win, I think we’re done, and it’s going to be worse that we can imagine. Tell everyone you know to VOTE in their PRIMARIES. If conservatives wait till the General, our candidate may not be there. This is SO important. Gotta watch this to understand why. RNC/GOPe try to sabotage Trump. Wonder why your candidate is NEVER chosen as nominee? Here it is.

He moved away from the first one, but he’s still committed to the second. We have time. Do your homework. What if he was Surgeon General? What else don’t we know yet?

  • Sam in Texas

    The only thing Dr. Carson got wrong in that was his comment that Muslims might be ok in Congress. The problem with that is the same as Muslims for President. Sharia law and Islam are completely incompatible with the Constitution, and, thus, a person who believes in Sharia law and Islam believes things completely incompatible with the Constitution and can only act to destroy it, no matter what their office.

  • Reagan girl

    Sirahj Wahhaj, unindicted co-conspirator of the first trade center bombing said this:
    “If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with acaliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” Wahhaj said in 1992.[5]

    “As long as you remember that if you get involved in politics, you have to be very careful that your leader is for Allah. You don’t get involved in politics because it’s the American thing to do. You get involved in politics because politics are a weapon to use in the cause of Islam,” he said in 1991.[6]

    “The trap we fall into is having a premature discussion about Sharia when we are not there yet,” he said in 2011.[7]

  • WKRP

    CAIR has just won votes for Carson.

  • Ganesha_akbar

    Incidentally, Dr. Carson didn’t assert that mullah Hussein is Muslim. Hussein is (uncontroversially) an apostate.

    Americans are convinced Obama is Muslim because he was a practicing Muslim. This matters because Obama became what Islamic law calls a murtadd (apostate), an ex-Muslim converted to another religion– who (under sharia law) is subject to the most severe penalties. Obama’s apostate status clearly had enormous implications for his relationship with the Muslim world.

    Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

    In sum: The cited evidence demonstrates that Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his step-father in a mosque. This precisely substantiates the assertion that Obama for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father.

    Therefore, what Leftists consider a media falsehood is in fact confirmed by evidence as truthful and accurate. The fact that so few understand this about Obama is a testimony to the Obamedia puppets disinformation and denial campaigns.

    Denying Obama’s Muslim heritage is in itself a falsehood.

    If there is nothing wrong with being a muslim, why does the Left so vehemently deny obama is one?

  • bicentennialguy

    CAIR is a terrorist organization. Period.

    “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

    – Omar Ahmad
    Founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)

    Enough said.

    Liberals, with Jewish Hollywood’s help, are busily trying to erase any trace of Christians and Christianity from this country. If we ever vote for anyone other than a Christian, we’ll have lost all hope. I want Trump/Carson in 2016 to make America great again.

    CAIR is a foreign entity; Islam is a POLITICAL movement disguised as a religion; the mission; Sharia Law NOT the US Constitution…

  • FranklinsGhost

    The opinions of a few dozen know-nothings at CAIR passing themselves off as a significant organization while pontificating on Presidential elections is about as meaningless as the Black Lives Matter folks who are abstaining from supporting any of the current candidates

    I call on CAIR to leave America and go back to the Islamic sh!tholes they want to create here.

    why is there even an organization like this in the white house ,,,Muslims do not integrate nor do they assimilate into our culture or laws,,they take over and convert it is called hijama –immigrate and take over ,,and we are too stupid to see it ,,they are pedophiles ,,mass murderers ,rapists ,they condone honor killings ,cousin marriages ,,and are cruel to animals ,they think their fighters are heroes and idolize suicide bombers , im tired of the ongoing islamization of our united states,, they convert the states at our expense with mosques and the weak politicians with their over correct political correctness are not putting their foot down for fear of offending someone ,, they make demands on everyone to accommodate them for we are offensive in our pork eating , praying ,,alcohol drinking,, flag loving ways and we DO!!!,,,its sickening ,, no back bone ,, i am done with my rant ,, everyone have a great day !!

    muslims are garbage.

  • whoisjohngalt58

    CAIR can pack sand. these people have one thing in mind. to bring down the US and all western country and install Sharia law .

    these knuckle dragging sandnigs won’t be happy until Dhimma exists world wide.
    what’s worse is we have one of them ALREADY in the Whitehouse.

    I know it is. If this election cycle does not turn a great many things around, which it may or may not (as the Reagan election did) then throwing off isn’t going to happen as a matter of political handing over of authority via election, it is going to be a more silent action. People will just grow more and more unwilling to comply willingly with even the simplest of code.

    People will jay walk because they just don’t care anymore. They will become lawless in the smallest of ways, growing larger each day, simply because they just don’t care. That will continue until people just dole out street justice – because they know there will be no justice dealt out in court.

    We witness in the “ghetto” communities already. Though few will admit that is what is really going on there. If all people are not held to the same set of rules, race, creed, gender ALL of it aside, then turmoil is the only path forward. If the political class remains in control after this next election cycle, the people of this country will see that elections can not solve the ills this country has this day – and they will search out other resolution hence. Throwing the injustice off by force is the path they will find, partly because it is one of the only ones left available to the masses.

    Sadly, it doesn’t have to be this way BECUASE “we really do surround them”, the political class I mean. When it comes down to it, even though the political class refuses to admit it, when the power of the democratic vote fails within an eroded constitutional republic, we gun owners will indeed still get our vote.

    And that my friend is not only how this nation was born, it was long ago admitted that it is also how it will be reborn when corruption takes hold.

    This is a tough question because one of the most important foundations of this country was freedom of religion. We’ve also gone back and forth with christian and protestant candidates in the past what makes this different is that crazies have hijacked the muslim religion and under that flag attacked us. If the muslim world had done more to reject and fight them I’d say a muslim president ok as long as he or she follows american law and conduct not sharia law, but as it stands there’s no way in hell I’d vote for a muslim for anything including dog catcher.

  • Bill Gainer

    Under Sharia law:
    * There is no freedom of religion
    * There is no freedom of speech
    * There is no freedom of the press
    * There is no equality of people (a non-muslim is never equal to a muslim
    * There are no equal rights for women
    * Women can be beaten
    * Non-muslims can not bear arms
    * There is no democracy and all governments must ruled by Sharia
    * There is no equal protection for different classes of people..Justice is dualistic… one set of laws for muslims males and a different set of laws for muslim females and non muslims.
    It is the responsibility of all Americans to learn about Sharia law and political islam… Religious Islam and Political Islam do not exist separately. Where one takes root, the other follows.. Turning a blind eye in the name of religious tolerance is part of the plan.
    Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse.
    The wolves will be herding the sheep!

    NOTE : Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic , a devout Jew, a devoted aithiest, a devoted Gaymonite or a devout Protestant…? Just wondering.

    Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions?
    Doesn’t this make you feel safer already??

    That should make the United States much safer, huh!!
    Was it not “Devout Muslim men ” that flew planes into U.S. buildings only 10 years ago?
    We must never forget this..
    Was it not a Devout Muslim man who killed 13 at Fort Hood ? (He killed “From within” -don’t forget that).

    Also: This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:

    Theologically – no . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia

    Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)

    Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.

    Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews..

    Politically – no.Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.

    Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )

    Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression.. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

    Therefore, after much study and deliberation. … Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. – – – They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish, it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.

    Can a Muslim be a good soldier???

    Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, opened fire at Ft. Hood and Killed 13. He is a good Muslim!!!
    Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within.


    That is all…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service revoked the nonprofit status of the veterans benefit organization that hosted and sold tickets to a foreign policy speech by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump aboard a retired U.S. battleship, The Associated Press has learned. The group’s endorsement of Trump at the event also could raise legal problems under campaign finance laws.

  • BeazBall

    If CAIR also has a 501(c)(4) entity that allows it to engage in “political activity” it could make such statements.
    Oop, wouldn’t you know it? It’s head office does.
    So, apparently, CAIR is acting legally.

  • innerbeauty

    How anyone who is educated can support the Muslims having ANY say in this country is just more than I can fathom! Why cant they see what the rest of us see?
