Hamas supporting Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) accused Donald Trump of “inciting violence” against Muslims for telling a story about bullets dipped in pig’s blood during a South Carolina rally.
CAIR thought the story was Islamophobic and could incite violence against peaceful Muslims.

More nonsense from CAIR—-
Presidential contender Donald Trump is now the latest Republican presidential candidate to receive negative publicity from The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization in the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation’s Hamas-funding operation.
Nihad Awad, CAIR’s executive-director (and a supporter of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas), said Trump is pushing “inflammatory rhetoric” after the GOP candidate told a story during a rally about Muslims being executed with bullets “dipped in pig’s blood.”
Trump reportedly told a story at a rally in South Carolina on Friday about General John Pershing’s operations during the Philippine-American War.
He took 50 bullets and he dipped them in pig’s blood, and he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the 50th person, he said, “You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.” And for 25 years there wasn’t a problem.
Awad, the Hamas supporter, responded to Trump’s remarks:
Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric has crossed the line from spreading hatred to inciting violence… By directly stating that the only way to stop terrorism is to murder Muslims in graphic and religiously-offensive ways, he places the millions of innocent, law-abiding citizens in the American Muslim community at risk from rogue vigilantes.
