CAIR’s Honest Ibe Hooper admits “Don’t talk to the FBI” poster “crossed a line,” but those who noticed that are part of “Islamophobic hate machine”

--

“Islamophobic Hate Machine.” Sounds like the makings of a brightly painted, ’60s-era van for a gang of sleuths and a lovable, cowardly (and unclean) dog. And they found a clue that confirmed what they suspected all along: that all criticism of Islamic teachings and groups is automatically branded as “hate” in an attempt to silence the discussion.

Momentarily sidelined by a missing pair of glasses (“Jinkies!”), they cornered the purveyor of this tactic and pulled off the mask: (Gasp!) Old man Hooper! And Ibe would’ve gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids!

Roll the credits, and stay tuned for Captain Caveman, starring Adam Gadahn. An update on this story. “CAIR Says Poster Warning Against Helping FBI is Misinterpreted,” by Todd Starnes for Fox News, January 13:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said it will remove a poster from the group’s website promoting an upcoming conference that encourages people not to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The poster, which appeared on the website of CAIR’s California chapter, features a sinister-looking FBI agent with the headlines “Build a Wall of Resistance” and “Don’t Talk to the FBI.” The poster was designed in the late 1970s or early 1980s and has been reproduced by various groups and activists since then in response to alleged harassment by the FBI and to protest grand jury subpoenas.

“I think it’s subject to misinterpretation,” spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told Fox News Radio when speaking about the poster. “We decided out of extreme caution to take it down.”

The poster was promoting a conference called “FBI Raids and Grand Jury Subpoenas: Know Your Rights and Defend Our Communities.” The keynote speaker is Hatem Abudayyeh, identified by CAIR as an activist and Palestinian community leader whose home was allegedly raided by federal agents in September.

The conference is scheduled for Feb. 9 at the East Side Cultural Center in Oakland.

Hooper conceded the poster “crosses the line,” but refused to renounce the artwork and blamed critics for fomenting what he called a manufactured controversy.

“The entire American-Muslim community is under the microscope right now with a cottage industry of Muslim bashers,” he said. “We’re used to this kind of attack by the Islamophobic hate machine and in this case there is some justification in terms of the possibility of misinterpretation of this poster.”

Hooper said CAIR is just one of many co-sponsors of the event and he had no idea who was responsible for the artwork. Hooper said he was unable to provide a list of the other co-sponsors.

An FBI spokesperson told Fox News Radio they were aware of the poster but would not comment.

However, former FBI assistant director Bill Gavin told Fox News Radio the poster is sending the wrong message to the Muslim community.

“It sends out a real negative attitude to the Islamic community of what the FBI is really all about,” Gavin said. “This is just a propaganda tool to try and thwart an active investigation into criminal acts by a would-be terrorist group.”

Unsettling:

“Why wouldn’t you talk to the FBI,” Gavin wondered. “If, in fact, there is something being done to destroy the image of Islam in the United States, then it should be stopped. We should put a positive face on Islam — not Islamic extremists.”…

Who’s “we?” In which bizarre parallel universe would that be “our” job? The people responsible for negative perceptions of Islam are the ones committing murder and justifying it with chapter and verse.

    One doesn’t need a microscope to define the image of Islam. One just needs to open ones eyes and the petri dish yields abundant proof of disease. The positive face of Islam is a mask and its Hooper’s job to maintain the mask at all costs sometimes exposing himself and his CAIR as the enablers of this disease as is the case with theses posters.

  2. says

    I agree with F.B.I.’s Mr.Gavin, we should put a “POSITIVE” face on Islam! Islam is POSTIVEly trying to destroy our western democratic way of life!

  3. says

    Oh Good Grief FBI Gavin is such a tool.

    And Hooper? Something is very, very wrong with him. The irony is, of course, that he’s the hater. He reminds me of a rabid dog, foaming at the mouth about how wonderful his Religion of Hate is.

    He should ask himself, “Why are people bashing Islam and Muslims? Buddhists and Hindus don’t get bashed. Hmmm…there must be a reason.” You can figure it out, Doug!

  4. says

    The Muslims in America should not be surprised nor play the victims if they are up to no good and consequently they get investigated by the FBI. You do good, you have no problems. Muslims want to improve their image: all they have to do is go on the streets and demonstrate that they are against the acts of terror their brothers and sisters Muslims perpetrate against the Indians, the Copts in Egypt, the Christians in Iraq, etc.

  5. says

    I’m part of the machine?

    LOL

    I don’t seek recognition or renumeration for a reason… Anonymous credibility is priceless..

    Besides CAIR… It’s my pleasure to make your job an actual job…

    Kudos to all fellow Volunteers!

    Ibe Hoops could start saying the same about hate verses in Mein Qurampf and be allowed to get away with it, right? He could say that 9:5, 33:59, 9:29, 5:33 and the “crack-cocaine hadith”* about talking stones and trees screaming about Jews hiding behind them all cross the line, but that only “islamophobes” would see a problem with them…

    * I wonder how many converts to mahoundianism make their decision to join the cult of the black cube due to their hopes of getting THAT high without snorting, injecting or smoking anything…

  7. says

    “The entire American-Muslim community is under the microscope right now with a cottage industry of Muslim bashers,” he said. “We’re used to this kind of attack by the Islamophobic hate machine…Sob, whine, cry…

    Always the victims of a vast right wing well oiled Islamophobic hate machine…They are used to it, but they cannot explain it…Why would these nasty Islamophobes want to attack peace loving, kind and gentle Mahoundians, who just want to assimilate and become American? That’s got nothing to do with Islam…Sure there are attack verses in the Quran, and yes Mahound did engage himself in attacks, but no one believes in, or practices those verses any more…Allah’s words and directives only have half the value they had in Mahounds days…Verses like 8:39/2/193 no longer apply…Allah’s prime directives that he be the only god worshipped in the whole world, is now canceled…
    Mahounds can also now take Christians as friends and they can talk to the FBI…Of course this runs afoul of sharia law, but Mahoundians will work that out somehow…

  8. says

    Zoinks, Scoob…I wonder if they’re busy scrubbing the panel titles and giving noms de plumeguerre to the panel and guest speaker participants?

    Who can find the conference agenda first? On your mark, get set…

    (Have to go watch Thundarr the Barbarian now, who all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that barbaric.)

    O/T, which I hardly ever do, but while researching Oakland, I found this gem, as a curriculum requirement for a minor in Islamic Studies:

    A four-credit internship also is a curriculum requirement, which can be satisfied by service at such institutions as an Islamic bank, social service organization, think tank, school, mosque or civil rights organization.

    Ironic that “Oakland University” is located in Rochester, MI. I’ve found four typos and grammatical errors, and have only visited two pages, the second one of which refers to the “Jewish-Christian-Islamic” tradition as part of our “unified heritage.” Hrmmph.

  10. says

    Can’t wait for a really young hot Islamic band called the Islamopubes.

    Should do wonders for the POSITIVE image of Islam, especially if they’ve all survived the ingrained pedophilic proclivities of the old Islamic ‘men’!

  11. says

    I never talk to the FBI even before I convert to Islam. THEY try to entrap me into one of the FBI phony mterror plot saw like thought it. Drop than letter off at the federal court house the next day some FBI agent where stop by Federal Marchel for viloate my cival right and causeingt than car accident by bad driving. Now every bus driver laught at the FRBI for being supid. THAN THE fbi CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AS THEY ARE SUPID.

  12. says

    REALLY? !

    Can people who are so afraid of anything pork really have any credibility at labeling me relative to any kind of phobia I may have? !

    REALLY? !

    Could them calling me Islamophobic not constitute “hate speech” on their part?!

    REALLY? !

    Should we not all carry aerosol cans of bacon grease now rather than mace? !

    REALLY? !

    When did the FBI become the bad guys in this scenario? !

    REALLY? !

    Yeah, I can see how a poster saying “Build a wall of resistance” and “Don’t talk to the FBI” might be “misinterpreted.”

  14. says

    Of course they will blame us Kafirs because this is the duality/duplicity of Sharia!!!

    Wow DOI, America is such a terrible place that persecutes Muslims, isn’t it. I have an excellent win-win solution for everyone. Why don’t all muslims in the West start an exodus back to Dar ul Islam, where you all become first class citizens, live under Shariah law, get to persecute women and kuffars, and enjoy all the other trappings of islam? Surely all the wonders and goodness of Islam are beckoning you back to the lands where Islam rules supreme… I can’t for the life of me understand why you would want to live in the West.

    After all, Kuffars born in Muslim countries are leaving to go to the West – that is consistent with their position that islam persecutes them.

    “Why wouldn’t you talk to the FBI,” Gavin wondered. “If, in fact, there is something being done to destroy the image of Islam in the United States, then it should be stopped. We should put a positive face on Islam — not Islamic extremists.”…

    It seems to me that what he menas on this statement is born out of his own ignorance of islam. If he’s supposed to believe the common rhetoric that “islam is peace”, then it wouldn’t make sense to him that Muslims would purposely try to keep the FBI from they’re investigations. When he says “we”, he’s talking about the FBI and Muslims concerned with ridding their ranks of jihadists. But I think it’s probably beginning to dawn on this guy that Muslims aren’t too concerned with getting rid of the jihadists in their midsts. And the sooner all of us realize that in this country and the world, the sooner we can have a real dialogue with the adherents of this “religion”.

  18. says

    “The Council on American-Islamic Relations said it will remove a poster from the group’s website promoting an upcoming conference that encourages people not to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” — from the article

    OK, so Muslims might be unwilling to cooperate with law enforcement officials. It’s not unlike the mafia oath of silence.

    To the lawyers here: Aren’t there laws making it illegal to withhold evidence, and being accessory to a crime? Maybe even one that takes it a step farther back before the actual commission, to where it is illegal to publicly foment the commission of these crimes, which would be the case here.

    One would think that the FBI would be reminding Muslims of these laws, and illustrating how they are applied in practice by prosecuting a few well chosen, high profile example law breakers – like Dougie Hooper.

  19. says

    Isn’t telling people to be unco-operative with a a government law enforcement agency tantamount to encouraging ‘obstruction of the course of Justice’?
    And if so, why hasn’t CAIR been charged with the crime?

    DOI’s “version” :

    I never talk to the FBI even before I convert to Islam. THEY try to entrap me into one of the FBI phony mterror plot saw like thought it. Drop than letter off at the federal court house the next day some FBI agent where stop by Federal Marchel for viloate my cival right and causeingt than car accident by bad driving. Now every bus driver laught at the FRBI for being supid. THAN THE fbi CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AS THEY ARE SUPID.

    My “version” :

    “I talked to the FBI even BEFORE I converted to Islam.
    THEY (the Jews) tried to entrap me in one of their ongoing terror investigations, of which I was a part. With the help of my new-found butt-buddies, however, we saw right through it all, at least for now…

    Trouble is, they caught me dropping off a letter bomb at the FEDERAL COURTHOUSE the next day, and I was busted. I crashed my car trying to escape from them, because Middle Eastern men are such horrendous drivers.

    Now, all of my head-banging, child-molesting brother bus-drivers and I laugh at all the stupid FBI guys that we know are watching us…

  21. says

    “Don’t talk to the FBI” poster “crossed a line,”…

    … into criminality. There are laws proscribing promotion of obstruction of justice. Ring the bastards up on RICO felony charges.

    Or, is this yet another example where our hairy Moslem friends are above the laws that apply to the rest of us?

  22. says

    Dishonest Ibe is still used to the Good Old Days, when he used to speak Arabic out of one side of his mouth, which was only heard by the Arab World, and English out of the other side, only to be heard by the Western World. Nowadays, with Modern Media and the Internet, that is no longer possible. Both sides of his mouth are heard by all.

    A hearty welcome to the 21st Century, to those stuck in the 7th Century!

    When CAIR-Canada and Dr.Sheema Khan teamed-up with Dr.Elamsry and a pro-Hamas group in canada to launch their Lawfare for $400’000’000.00 against Canadian Taxpayers for the Allegation by Maher Arar (Syrian Draft-Dodger fled to canada for protection but got a gun permit once here and then a 2nd Home near the 9/11 Boston Airport) that he was “Tortured” in his Homeland, I knew it was an extortion scam and it was conformed when Maher Arar jumped at the chance to settle Out Of Court for $10 Million .
    CAIR’s Dr.Sheema Khan is on record in an Inquiry trying to pawn-off CAIR’s bogus “Islamophobia” survey done for the 800’000 muslims in Canada.
    BUT…..StatsCan evidence from our Census showed only about 400’000 Muslims in canada, then the Crown’s Lawyer ripped apart Ms.Khan’s Com-job survey to expose how it was only about 600 PEOPLE that included Tourists, Foreign Students, and those that knew someone that FELT they were a victim of Racial-Profiling.

    CAIR’s Dr.Khan also was forced to tell the truth about CAIR’s “Know Your Rights” booklet they gave out in Canada to coach Muslims and Arabs in Canada to not help the Government find Terror Cells plotting to murder us godless infidels.

    Sheema khan has left CAIR-canada and now denied her links to Nehad Awad and the funelling of Donation in Canada to her Saudi Masters at CAIR USA, Khan (aka Con-Job Khan) now pretend to like Hockey and spew her tripe that the Hijab is a free-will choice.

    Hard to believe the Dr.Sheema Khan sat on a Human-Rights panel in canada and now has a job as a Patent Agent in Ottawa near CAIR’s Ottawa Head Office and the other Pro-Shariah Law Org.’s.

    * But lets not overlook the bebefits to CAIR’s KYR booklet because it tells me that I should KMR too.
    So lets join Fib-brahim Hooper and Daisy Con and exercise our Rights to keep quit to the FBI when WE hear of a plot to bomb a Mosque or Muslim Businesses, how ironic that Hooper will one day be on CNN ranting about how Islamophobes are not coming forward to aid the FBI in exposing attacks on Muslims temples and Businesses.

    Don’t fight it folks, put CAIR’s policies under the microscope and see how we can exploit them and then hold up a mirror to Awad and Hooper to ask if they believe that our Policy aid in cultural harmony or is divisive.
    Let CAIR tell the Ameican public if he condones Terrorism or abhors it by wanting us Infidels to stop exercising our Rights to not talk to the FBI or Police if we know of potential Terrorism toward Mosques and Islamic Structures.

    We’re not looking at this in the right way to shove it back in CAIR’s face , let them define a bigot and pro-Terrorism thug.

  27. says

    I’m surprised that the press release from CAIR didn’t say something like this:
    “The poster has been removed from the website, as we believe it was communicating to the kufr an undesirable impression of the attitudes of many muslims to American institutions and society. We absolutely reject the rumors that over the last two days that the poster has been tortured with beatings, electric drills, and soldering irons to determine the extent of its betrayal of the ummah. These is no truth to the accusations that the poster was then buried in a shallow grave and its relatives warned of a similar fate should they provide information to authorities or the kufr. This is all the result of a misunderstanding and Americans should be warned of the troubles that could occur should this matter be pursued further. Muslims should not be held responsible for the actions of a tiny minority that are in accord with the views of the majority of innocent muslims, and exemplified by the behavior of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).”

    DOI – I think you are Ibe Hooper because you and him think and talk so much alike: everyone is an Islamophobic and you say we hate MoSlum. The fact is we hate Islam because it is a hate manual. It is an anti-human theme. It is an anti-life instructions set, because you guys have no respect for anything beyond Islamic phrases. The phrases written in one of the World’s most crippled language, Arabic. Why would God have chosen Arabic over several other extensively rich languages during that period? Don’t you get that, the Mo – the best con artists ever, conned your mind, money and will 1400 years after he died. I guess that is some achievement.

    You know why everyone is concerned about Iran acquiring nukes? Thats right, those mothers will use them without taking the responsibility of the genocide. You people never ever admit to all those massacres went on, in the name of Islam, over thousand years and you are continually doing it. Islam has no plan to stop their thirst for everyone’s blood. The change is not allowed in Islam. They are ‘Alla’s words.

    DOI – it would be good if you tell us there is something strange about the Cowran and you would like our opinion, instead of calling us names. Name callings will not get you and Hooper anywhere.

  30. says

    Why yes, Dougie, it’s such a beyond-the-pale possible interpretation that I can understand, that after consulting with your lawyers trained in American jurisprudence (do you know any?), you determined that, even though such a poster might only be interpreted as “don’t comply with duly appointed U.S. officials performing their responsibilities in investigation of possible threats to peace and security of our nation” by schizophrenic, fringy, potheads, you should take it down anyway.

    Thanks for using such an abundance of caution.

  31. says

    It looks to me like the poster artist stole the shadowy FBI agent from ‘Spy versus Spy’ of Mad Magazine…

    Other than that, The FBI is kufr…The FBI does not want to discuss the weather, they want information in order to make arrests of ‘brothers’…It is haram to snitch off your brothers to kufr authorities…No pious Mahoundian wants to be haram…Allah frowns on it…

    Oakland, as I have mentioned before, is a very odd place. It is right across the bay from San Francisco, and right next to Berkeley. It has a beautiful lake; lovely, rolling live oak-covered hills; a large number of artists; lovely neighborhoods full of little shops, restaurants, and arty cafes”it also has a frighteningly high murder rate, huge gang and drug problems, a large Muslim population, and a dark history featuring the Black Panthers and Your Black Muslim Bakery assassinating investigative journalists.
