January 12, 2005 - San Franciso, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to a press release by CAIR [The Council on American-Islamic Relations] the radical Islamist - pro jihaddist - organization today claimed "that it is encouraged by a recent meeting in Los Angeles with representatives of the Fox television network to discuss Muslim concerns about the drama series "24."
CAIR demanded the meeting to address what they characterize as an unfair "depiction of a Muslim family that is at the heart of a terror plot in the popular program." The group's spokesman went on to claim that the "group is concerned that the portrayal of the family as a terrorist "sleeper cell" may cast a shadow of suspicion over ordinary American Muslims and could increase Islamophobic stereotyping and bias."
Our response to this is simple.
What the hell is going on over at the fair and balanced network, has that despicable clown Ibrahim Hooper crazed mouthpiece for the even more despicable CAIR - been put in charge there?
We mean really, what the hell gives?
Like its really a huge stretch to imagine a family of Muslims plotting campaigns of terror and violence?
It's no secret that Hamas apologist CAIR and the majority of other so-called Muslim civil rights groups are mere Wahabist Saudi funded fronts for the Islamists, and the fact that Fox would kow-tow to them is simply unbelievable.
If one applies the Fox Doctrine - and we must assume this will be adopted on a corporate wide basis - the next time a network affiliate runs a World War II movie such as "The Dirty Dozen," the broadcast must be preceded and followed by 60 second public interest announcements stating that - just so viewers don't get the wrong impression - only the majority of Germans were Nazis and that Hitler was - in his personal life - a mild mannered vegetarian who loved children, just as long as they weren't Jewish.
What Fox has done here - aside from completely caving in to a group of Islamist thugs - is to totally compromise whatever amount of intellectual freedom that still might exist at the so-called conservative network. If - given the backdrop of 911, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Palestinian Intifada, beheadings, torture, Chechen female suicide bombers and the 2002 Bali nightclub attack - an entertainment show can't depict a Muslim as an active terrorist, they have set themselves up to be rolled every time some crackpot group decides to challenge them.
Additionally - and this is a sin not of ommission but commission - this move further legitimizes CAIR at a time when it is moving into American schools - welcomed by multiculturalist fools - under the guise of interfaith outreach, with the intent of convincing children that Islam means them no harm and that something must have gone very terribly wrong at the White House for engaging in a war against the "non-existent" threat of Islamic terror.
Finally, at the point where the alleged "hurt feelings" of sacred cow groups become the operative standard whereby plot lines are determined then it is at that juncture where Fox simply ceases to be relevant.
For a very brief re-hash of where CAIR and their ilk stands, the following was sped our way courtesy of Beila Rabinowitz, our Director of Wahabi watch, with much thanks to Dr. Daniel Pipes, Board Member - US Institute of Peace, whose site - Daniel Pipes.org - featured this, partially quoted, abstract:
CAIR Named as a Defendant in 9/11 Terror Lawsuit A class action lawsuit in the name of John P. O'Neill, Sr., stemming from the 9/11 atrocity, has named the Council on American-Islamic Relations as a defendant. (For those confused about the multiple 9/11 court cases, there is help on the way at http://www.september11terrorlitigation.com/.) Here are the paragraphs of Estate of John P. O'Neill, Sr. et al. vs. Al Baraka Investment and Development Corporation dealing with CAIR's role in the events of September 11, 2001, from the second amended class action complaint, filed today:
86. Council on American Islamic Relations and CAIR Canada (collectively, CAIR), have aided, abetted, and materially sponsored and al Qaeda and international terrorism. CAIR is an outgrowth of the Hamas front group the Islamic Association of Palestine. The FBI's former associate director in charge of Investigative and Counter-Intelligence Operations described the Islamic Association of Palestine as an organization that has directly supported Hamas military goals and is a front organization for Hamas that engages in propaganda for Islamic militants. It has produced videotapes that are very hate-filled, full of vehement propaganda. It is an organization that has supported direct confrontation.
87. CAIR and CAIR-Canada have, since their inception, been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism. These organizations play a unique role in the terrorist network. They emanate from the notorious HAMAS terrorist organization and like so many of the terrorism facilitating charities named and indicted by the United States government they are engaged in fund raising under the guise of assisting humanitarian causes they are, in reality, a key player in international terrorism. The unique role played by CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to manipulate the legal systems of the United States and Canada in a manner that allows them to silence critics, analysts, commentators, media organizations, and government officials by leveling false charges of discrimination, libel, slander and defamation. In addition, both organizations have actively sought to hamper governmental anti-terrorism efforts by direct propaganda activities aimed at police, first-responders, and intelligence agencies through so-called sensitivity training. Their goal is to create as much self-doubt, hesitation, fear of name-calling, and litigation within police departments and intelligence agencies as possible so as to render such authorities ineffective in pursuing international and domestic terrorist entities.
88. The role of CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to wage PSYOPS (psychological warfare) and disinformation activities on behalf of Whabbi-based [Wahhabi-based, DP] Islamic terrorists throughout North America. They are the intellectual "shock troops" of Islamic terrorism. In the years and months leading up to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 these organizations were very effective in helping to ensure that North American law enforcement and intelligence officials were sufficiently deaf, dumb, and blind to help pave the way for the attacks on the United States. The role played by these entities is an absolutely essential part of the mix of forces arrayed against the United States as they help soften-up targeted countries so as to facilitate and enhance the likelihood for a successful attack.
