“On behalf of all Ohioans, [my wife and I] appreciate your vision to promote
justice and mutual understanding. We gather under CAIR-Ohio’s theme this year,
‘American Muslims: Connecting and Sharing,’ to do just that, to connect and
share and get to know each other better.”
No, Mr Strickland, you don't speak for me. Your unmitigated gall in attending this event, much less claiming to speak for all Ohioans is very disturbing. Unfortunately, a great many of the people of this state will be unaware of your support for CAIR (did I mention they are an unindicted co-conspirator in a case regarding funding for the terrorist organization HAMAS?) do to the fact that no major newspaper in this state has bothered to report on your little love-fest with these people.
For those of you who haven't been paying attention, CAIR (don't forget, they support HAMAS) claims to be a Muslim civil rights organization. In reality, their goal is to Islamize the United States of America.
From FrontPage Magazine:
" “Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith but to become
dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest
authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
This was the sentiment
of Omar M. Ahmad, the Chairman of the Board of the Council on
American-Islamic Relations or CAIR, as told at an Islamic conference held in
Freemont, California, in July of 1998. "
I suppose in their eyes that qualifies as Muslim civil rights. After all, they think that Muslim civil rights should always trump the rights of infidels.
Ohioans, if you believe in the constitution of the United States, if you believe in government of the people, by the people and for the people, write to Governor Strickland and express your displeasure with the company he keeps.
