CAIR-California’s Deceptive Video Smears ACT! for America
A video put out by CAIR’s (Council on American-Islamic Relations) California affiliate circulating the internet is grossly deceptive and demands a response.
The video is actually an edited stringing together of at least three different videos, shot at different times and in two different places.
FACT: There was a peaceful rally of approximately 800 people in Yorba Linda, California, which was addressed by numerous public officials. You can see a few shots of the speakers on the CAIR-CA video.
FACT: There was a small group of protestors who were disrespectfully heckling Muslims entering a building. This group of protestors was separate from the larger rally. Indeed, you will note on the video that most of the video of the protestors occurred when it was dark—well after the larger rally had ended.
The video falsely claims ACT! for America “sponsored” this protest where the heckling occurred.
FACT: ACT! for America did not sponsor either the protest or the peaceful rally. ACT! for America did not organize either event. ACT! for America sent out emails informing people that there was a peaceful rally scheduled to take place at the Yorba Linda Community Center.
FACT: ACT! for America does not encourage, support or condone the kind of tactics employed by some of the protestors. Anyone who reads our emails would know that we always encourage peaceful, respectful grassroots action. We are confident the truth about radical Islam speaks for itself, and the kind of tactics employed by some of the protestors we consider abhorrent, disrespectful and counterproductive.
FACT: The purpose of the event we informed people about was to let the Yorba Linda Community Center know that it had booked two radical Islamists, Siraj Wahhaj and Anur-Abel Malik-Ali. Malik-Ali has, among other things, denounced the “white man” as “the enemy.” Wahhaj has called for “war” and “jihad” against America, including jihad with “uzis.” Our email stated: Politely ask them to cancel the event.
ACT! for America believes men like Wahhaj and Malik-Ali should be exposed for their radicalism. This is why we informed people about the event intended for that purpose.
What’s more, emails put out in advance of the rally by the ACT! for America Corona (CA) chapter stated “Unite in Peaceful Protest…” and “This is a peaceful, lawful gathering…”
What Siraj Wahhaz and Anur-Abel Malik-Ali have said is repugnant.
What the heckling protestors did was repugnant.
And what CAIR-California did, smearing ACT! for America by falsely claiming ACT! for America sponsored the heckling protest and implying that ACT! for America encourages such behavior, was also repugnant.
***********************************************************Who is ICNA?
The Muslim Brotherhood document, "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” refers to ICNA as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded organizations who teach "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions. “The Brotherhood’s creed is: ‘God is our objective; the Koran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.’”
Who is Siraj Wahhaj?
* The Muslim Brotherhood calls Wahhaj the “American Imam.”
* In 1993 he was named as an Unindicted Co Conspirator in World Trade Center Bombings Investigation.
* Believes in converting gang members to Islam for
“day America will crumble.” Wahhaj says for the faithful to go into the hood and prisons and convert disenfranchised minorities, and then arm and train them to carry out an Uzi jihad in the inner cities. * Wahhaj says “You know what this country (USA) is? It’s a garbage can.” He snarls. “It’s filthy.” He prays it (USA) “crumbles” and is replaced by Islam.
Who is Anur-Abel Malik-Ali?
* At the Universal Heritage Foundation’s December 2003 Islamic Conference in Florida, he warned moderate American Muslims that their desire to be “liked” was turning them into “‘house slaves.’” * He said, “Sooner or later, today’s Muslim students will be the parents of Muslim children. And they should be militants.” * At the Sixth Annual Muslim Student Association Conference held at UC Berkeley in February 2004, Malik-Ali denounced “the white man, who is the enemy.”
