You know you must be on the right track when Hamas-linked CAIR is frantically trying to keep people from reading what you say. But in doing so, they just show people where they can find the truth. Zead Ramadan, the top dog of the New York chapter of Hamas-linked CAIR, said this to Keith Olbermann on MSNBC:
RAMADAN: No, these are pathetic excuses for the hatred and the fearmongering that’s been, you know, spewed over the area, you got to stop the Islamization of America with Robert Spencer , who’s basically our modern day Jim Jones . And he’s poisoning people over the Internet . And, unfortunately, these people who think they’re on his side, he’s throwing him under the bus. And they’re making these ridiculous comments and they’re going out there and they’re attacking Muslims . In Brooklyn , just a couple of months ago, there was a Bangladeshi man on a construction — he was a construction worker on a break from lunch and he was approached by three teens. And they asked him, are you a Muslim? And he said, yes, and they said go back to your bleeping country . Then they attacked him. And the man was in a coma.
It’s a funny thing: Islamic jihadists, avowed Islamic jihadists operating explicitly in the name of Islam and jihad, took down the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. But Hamas-linked CAIR’s line, and the line of so many others, is that Islam and Muslims had nothing to do with 9/11, and anyone who suggests otherwise is an Islamophobic racist bigot. Yet Hamas-linked CAIR ops like Zead Ramadan have no compunction about linking me to incidents that I was not involved with and are against everything I have ever advocated. Tarring me with responsibility for incidents I had nothing to do with is fine; pointing out the very real connection between Islam and Muslims and 9/11 is “hateful.”
You must be able to see through the game they’re playing. Ramadan and his unsavory ilk are trying to claim victim status for Muslims so as to divert attention away from the increasingly dodgy statements and connections of the Ground Zero mega-mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, and from the ongoing incidents of Islamic jihad violence worldwide. Ramadan is also trying to pretend that the opposition to the Ground Zero mega-mosque is all because of me (as others have done with Pamela Geller recently) — and thus if they destroy me, or Pamela, they think they will have neutralized and discredited the opposition to the mosque. He gives us too much credit, and doesn’t seem to realize that the seventy percent of Americans who oppose the mosques are tired of being smeared as racists and bigots by duplicitous thugs from groups that are linked to jihad terror up to their eyeballs and yet are still given a free pass by dhimmi pseudo-journalists like Keith Olbermann.
It’s also noteworthy that Ramadan goes after me here, even though Pamela has been quite vocal against them on numerous television shows — likely because if they keep going after a woman, it looks bad.
People are angry at Muslims and suspicious of them because of Pamela Geller and me? Has it ever occurred to Zead Ramadan that people may be angry at Muslims and suspicious of them because of…Osama bin Laden? Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood jihadist? Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square jihadist? Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Christmas underwear jihadist? Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who murdered a soldier at a Little Rock Army recruiting center? Adam Gadahn? John Walker Lindh? 9/11? The London jihad bombings? The Madrid jihad bombings? The Mumbai jihad bombings? The Beslan jihad massacres? The Bali jihad bombings? The thousands of jihad attacks that have taken place around the world since 9/11? Not to mention the arrogance and dishonesty of “peaceful” Islamic spokesmen like the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, his unctuous and glaringly insincere wife Daisy Khan, Honest Ibe Hooper, and Zead Ramadan himself? And so many others.
Anyway, who is more like Jim Jones, a mass-murdering cult leader? Me, or Zead Ramadan of Hamas-linked CAIR? CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Olbermann appears unfazed by the fact that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case. Several of its former officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. Two of its other officials have made Islamic supremacist statements. CAIR also was involved in the Flying Imams’ intimidation suit against the passengers who reported their suspicious behavior.
In contrast to all that, have I ever advocated violence against innocent Muslims, as Hamas has crowed about its attacks on Israeli civilians? No, quite the contrary. Have I ever advocated contravention of any Constitutional principles in favor of authoritarian rule, as Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper and Omar Ahmad have done when they said they’d like to see the U.S. have an Islamic government, i.e., one ruled by Sharia, which denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of women and non-Muslims? No, I have not.
Zead Ramadan can bloviate, lie, and defame and the ridiculous Olbermann will nod and thank him. But Americans can see through him. And that’s why his smears are getting wilder. It’s a sign of his desperation. He knows his evil, seditious game is almost up, and the day is fast approaching when the only one he will still be able to fool is Keith Olbermann.
