CAIR Cashes in on Ft. Hood Massacre

From the Jawa Report, we publish this, in full, and urge you all to follow that blog, since it was, and has been a great inspiration for the JIDF:  

From the Daily Standard comes this email from Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) executive director Nihad Awad using the 14 dead Americans killed at Ft Hood last week to raise funds for the terrorist front group.
Urgent Action: Help CAIR Defend Your Community in Times of Crisis

Dear XXX,

As-salaamu alaykum(Peace be with you),

When a crisis such as the Fort Hood attack and now the government’s move to seize four American mosques occurs, CAIR is there to defend you and the Muslim community.

Within hours of the Fort Hood attack, CAIR, along with other organizations, held a news conference at its Washington, D.C. headquarters and issued a statement of condemnation to thousands of local, national and international media outlets.

Perhaps you saw CAIR spokespeople interviewed on MSNBC's Hardball or on PBS's NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, CNN, MSNBC, or the BBC. Or maybe you read CAIR quotes in the Washington Post, New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, or USA Today.

CAIR's professional staff has been working non-stop in dealing with these crises.

CAIR provided advice and support for Islamic centers nationwide on how to handle the crisis, including ensuring your safety in case of an anti-Muslim backlash. CAIR soon became the most watched non-profit on You Tube.

Our tone and immediate response is paying off. Major media acknowledged the strong statement that American Muslims issued condemning the Fort Hood attack. On CNN, Anderson Cooper reported that CAIR “reacted to the shooting spree, condemning the attack in the strongest terms possible.” ON MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews noted that CAIR was “quick to condemn the massacre.”

But our efforts are not without associated expenses. Sending just one statement about the Muslim community's stance against violence and extremism can cost thousands of dollars in staff time and distribution costs.
There’s no way for me to soften this: We need financial help to meet these crises and push back against those who seek to score political points off the Muslim community in the wake of the Fort Hood tragedy.

Please consider giving $5,000, $2,500, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50 or whatever you can.

If you donated in the past, please consider doubling that donation.
All contributions are zakat-eligible and tax-deductible.

Thank you for your support and may Allah bless you. We will continue to monitor the situation to prevent backlash against our community.

Nihad Awad
CAIR National Executive Director

P.S. Responding effectively to this crisis is pushing CAIR’s resources to the limit. Please donate right now. Then send this appeal to your friends and family, and post to Facebook, Twitter, and other Internet sites.
From the Jawa Archives: "War against Islam? Where would he get that idea? CAIR!":

Update by Barbarossa: A war on Islam? Where, oh, where might he have ever got that idea? Oh wait! That's right -- Parvez Ahmed, the Chairman of the Board for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR):
War on terror is war on Islam, says advocate
By Nisa Islam Muhammad Staff Writer Updated May 28, 2008 - 11:30:00 AM

WASHINGTON ( - The global war on terror has become a thinly veiled excuse to wage a global war on Islam with increased arrests of Muslims, calls for regime change in Muslim countries and racial profiling, according to a leader with a national Islamic organization.

“The tactic of terrorism—and yes it is a tactic, not an ideology—has been deployed by a multitude of groups of different religions, ethnicities and ideologies and yet the Islamic faith, unlike any other, is erroneously and incessantly associated with terrorism,” said Dr. Parvez Ahmed, a national board member of the Council on American Islamic Relations. “The association of a faith practiced by 1.2 billion people worldwide to terrorism creates the perception that the GWOT is a war against Islam.”
