CAIR claims they are helping the Muslim community improve relationships with non-Muslims in the United States. However, CAIR has been connected to terrorist organizations, and they make relationships worse.
Now, the leader of CAIR’s Los Angeles, California chapter – Hussam Ayloush, who once blamed America for the attacks in San Bernardino, made a shocking statement on Twitter after Donald Trump’s historic victory. WHOA!
Ok, repeat after me:
Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam.
(Arab Spring chant)
— Hussam Ayloush (@HussamA) November 9, 2016
As The Federalist Papers reports, this is a direct call to Muslims to take over America’s government:
It was a slogan first used during the Tunisian revolution, which kicked off the Arab Spring, where dozens of totalitarian Islamic nations were either toppled or faced serious street demonstrations. It was also the slogan during the overthrow of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.
Ayloush is not just a nominal figure in Leftist circles. In 2012, he was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention and has attended at least two White House meetings, Daniel Pipes is reporting.
The [White House] logs show Ayloush met with Paul Monteiro, associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement on July 8, 2011 and Amanda Brown, assistant to the White House director of political affairs Patrick Gaspard, on June 6, 2009. According to reliable sources, Monteiro was White House liaison for secret contacts with CAIR, especially with Ayloush.
For the record, advocating the overthrow of the U.S. Government is an extremely serious crime. In 18 U.S. Code § 2385, it reads:
“Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States… Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”
Ayloush has since said the tweet was some sort of an inside joke that only Muslims could get.
This is a serious crime, and with his influence in the Islamic Community, that Tweet shouldn’t be considered a joke. He’s playing into the anti-Trump narrative that the liberal media has created, and is fanning the flames of racial hatred.
