No matter how much accommodation, self-censorship, and appeasement to Muslim sensitivites, it is never enough.
President Obama has, for the whole of his presidency, implemented sharia-adherent restrictions on the “man-made disasters.” No “war on terror,” no Islam, no jihadic doctrine: all counter-terror materials were stripped of Islamic references and ideology.
Not good enough.
In light of the unimaginable toll of the global jihad and the now daily body count in Islamic wars — Obama declared a 3-day summit ridiculously named Countering Violent Extremism. That’s like calling America’s involvement in WWII countering U-boats or kamikaze pilots.
Absurd. And still not good enough. Even before the summit, UAE-designated terrorist groups like cair attacked the initiative: “CAIR’s national office issued a statement ahead of the summit questioning the effectiveness of programs closely tied to a government that many Muslims don’t trust.” Imagine how the victims feel, you savages.
Treason, sedition and working to overthrow the American government is not “freedom of speech.”
The Los Angeles program has drawn criticism from civil rights groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Haroon Manjlai, a spokesman for CAIR’s Los Angeles chapter, said the group is worried that the program will infringe on Muslims’ freedom of speech and religion and might hurt their public image.
CAIR’s national office issued a statement ahead of the summit questioning the effectiveness of programs closely tied to a government that many Muslims don’t trust. “Credible community voices who are not viewed as ‘being in the government’s pocket’ are necessary,” cair said.
But even though the effort may be well-intentioned, it’s not Luger’s place to expand social services, said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.Many Somali-Americans remain concerned about law enforcement blurring the lines between community outreach and intelligence gathering, Hussein said.
“We believe the federal prosecutor should not be the one giving money to do afterschool programs,” he said. “It should be coming from foundations and institutions.”

CAIR: Obama’s CVE Strategy Criticized as Wrongly Singling Out Muslims“We recognize there are people of ill intent trying to recruit American Muslims into their cause. But I think the community needs to be the one that leads on that front,” said Corey Saylor, director of the Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia at CAIR.
