Hamas-linked CAIR applauds Rep. Dingell’s letter to Facebook demanding removal of ‘anti-Muslim content’
Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper writes proudly that “CAIR was one of several organizations named by Rep. Dingell in her press release announcing the letter.”
Dingell apparently doesn’t care that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman, Omar Ahmad, as well as its chief spokesman, Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper, have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.)
Even worse, CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.
CAIR is also linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, which has the stated goal (according to a captured internal document) in America of “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house.” In light of that, this Georgia event is extremely interesting.
Yet despite all this, the political climate is so rancid today that Dingell will pay no political price either for her association with Hamas-linked CAIR or for her open opposition to the freedom of speech. Her demands that Facebook remove calls for “anti-Muslim violence, genocide and internment,” but if she doesn’t know that Hamas-linked CAIR and its allies have for years been demonizing and stigmatizing honest discussion of the motivating ideology behind jihad terrorism as “anti-Muslim,” and that her demands will also likely result in the silencing of such discussion, she should know it. Dingell is here actively aiding an endeavor to silence all criticism of Islam, which is all smeared in the same way, and enable the tacit acceptance of Sharia blasphemy law, which forbids such criticism.
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/16/20) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today thanked Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) – and the 29 congressional colleagues that joined her – in urging Facebook to take immediate action to eliminate anti-Muslim bigotry from that social media platform. CAIR was one of several organizations named by Rep. Dingell in her press release announcing the letter….
In the letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Rep. Dingell asked for Facebook to “immediately implement the following measures” –
Form a working group comprised of senior staff focused on anti-Muslim bigotry issues and responsible for coordinating work within the company to address hate groups, tropes, bigoted content, and anti-discrimination training.
Enforce your hate content and hate group policies in a way that ensures militias and white supremacists cannot use your event and group pages to terrorize targeted communities.
Committing to an independent third-party review of the company’s role in enabling anti-Muslim violence, genocide and internment.
Strive towards and commit to a 100 percent proactive detection and removal of anti-Muslim content and all other forms of hate before it is even seen.
Commit to regular anti-discrimination training for your entire staff world-wide
Training key staff on civil rights issues and common words, phrases, tropes or visuals used by hate actors to dehumanize and demonize Muslims.
