The malignant Islamic supremacists of Hamas-linked CAIR let their mask slip a bit, revealing the depth of their Islamic antisemitism. Honest Ibe Hooper here stoops lower than even I thought he could go, criticizing the Oakland Athletics for holding a promotion that is noble in light of the relentless vilification of Israel in the mainstream media and the world community today. Note also Honest Ibe’s whiny attempt yet again to claim victim status for Muslims in the U.S.
“Finding their religion: Oakland A’s plan first Jewish Heritage night,” by Michael McCarthy for USA Today, April 9 (thanks to Jack):
The issue of religious freedom vs. separation of church and state is always dicey and sports is not immune.
A growing number of MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL clubs are offering Christian, Jewish and Mormon nights.
But a national Muslim advocacy group doesn’t think it’s appropriate for teams to mix religion and sports. If sports teams are going do it, then the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants equal time for other religions.
“The ultimate test of this kind of policy would be to have a Muslim Family Day “” and gauge the public reaction to it,” says CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. “Given the heightened state of anti-Muslim sentiment in our society, I have a feeling there would be some objections to that.”
The Oakland A’s, for example, will hold their first Jewish Heritage Night against the Los [Angeles] Angels May 17. Attendees get an A’s yarmulke and a seat in the plaza infield section for $26.
Wish I could be there. Go, if you can, and show your support.
On Sunday, the NBA’s Golden State Warriors will hold their first Jewish Heritage night, including a Q&A with Israeli basketball player Omri Casspi, Jewish music and kosher barbecue. The 2010 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants are planning Fellowship (Christian), Jewish and LDS (Mormon) days among various ethnic heritage promotions this season….
