The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has written to Attorney General Eric (we are a nation of cowards) Holder to ask that he go after Muslim-bashers and presumably shut them up. I was interested to see that two cases of so-called bashing listed in their letter to Holder are ones we have written about here recently.
A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today called on Attorney General Eric Holder to protect the right of American Muslims to participate fully in the political process and to practice their faith without fear of government intrusion.
The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued that appeal following a number of recent government-related incidents targeting Islam, American Muslim lobbying efforts, American mosques, and Muslim religious practices.
Two of the cases they cite of “bashing” include the story we reported on two weeks ago when a retired FBI agent visited Shelbyville, TN and briefed local law enforcement about radical Islamic activities in the US.
And, of course the missing Somali youth case in Minnesota, as we reported last week, has brought the crybabies out to complain about FBI profiling. But, what the heck, since Somalis are missing, who better to ask for help in finding them than their fellow Somalis.
I don’t have enough time today to do this justice, so go read the rest of their letter and learn about all the interesting cases of supposed ‘Islamophobia’ cited by CAIR.
