Quoth Honest Ibe, “I think it’s subject to misinterpretation,” true to the perennial pattern of claims that the source of any controversy involving Islam or Muslims has been “taken out of context.”
Really, if one looks at CAIR’s track record on things like expecting bizarre accommodations from the TSA and its unindicted co-conspirator status in a terrorism financing case, one might instead be tempted to read things like “a wall of resistance” as a rare bit of forthrightness.
“American Muslims Told to Resist the Feds,” from Fox News, January 13 (thanks to Twostellas):
The Council on American Islamic Relations said they will remove a poster from their 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.”
“I think it’s subject to misinterpretation,” spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told Fox News Radio. “We decided out of extreme caution to take it down.”
