I am sure I don’t have to tell you that the reporter Jobim Panicker interviewed me for a half hour and used 30 seconds of it. No surprise there. But even now, even still, the media gives terror-tied group CAIR a bigger platform, without identifying them as indicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nations history. Nor do they mention the good number of CAIR leadership serving time behind bars for jihad-terror related crimes, or that CAIR is a US front for Hamas.
Alia Salem, the Hamas-CAIR rep, says no good came from Garland. Allow me to enlighten her. The Garland jihadis had been planning an attack for well over a year, way before we announced our Muhammad art exhibit. Had we not staged our free speech event, the Garland jihadis would have attacked somewhere else, a softer target, and we would have had a Chattanooga or San Bernardino on our hands. Garland saved lives. But they were kuffar lives, which is probably why the Hamas-CAIR rep sees no value in it. Alia Salem said, “there are no winners. There is no one who is benefiting from what happened on May 3rd last year.” The people whose lives were saved are “benefiting.” But this is what Hamas-CAIR does — deceive, deny, dissemble, distract.
She goes on to decry “hate speech,” the marketing term for blasphemy under the sharia, the brutal Islamic laws against free speech which we saw Muslims try to impose in Garland, one year ago.
