In a field crowded with contenders for the prize, Hussam Ayloush of Hamas-linked CAIR may be the most arrogant, imperious, hateful, mendacious and self-righteous Islamic supremacist on the scene. A particularly revolting and unpleasant man in his unctuous presentation of evil as good, he readily retails libels against freedom fighters on Twitter, only to retreat into silence when challenged about Hamas-linked CAIR’s ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. One would think that his open, gleeful Streicher-like Jew-hatred and strutting, tinpot-dictator Mussolini-like arrogance would be too much even for California Democrats, but somehow I doubt it will be. With Obama in the White House, Hamas-linked CAIR sees its moment, and is advancing as far as it possibly can before too many lovers of freedom get wind of what is happening.
“CAIR’s Ayloush Seeks California Democratic Party Post,” from IPT News, January 11 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):
The head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Los Angeles office wants another term as a delegate to the California Democratic Party.
Hussam Ayloush was elected as a delegate to District 60 and executive
board member in 2011 and seeks a second term in voting Saturday.
If returned to the seat, California Democrats will be represented by someone who likened law enforcement action against a Hamas-supporting charity to “an attempt at genocide” against Palestinians, who incorrectly blamed Jews for an Internet video about Islam’s prophet Muhammad that sparked deadly protests internationally. In addition, he defended and lionized university students who tried to silence a speech by Israel’s ambassador to the United States and defended a radical imam who called Jews “Descendants of the apes” and wants shariah law imposed over everyone in Egypt, including its Coptic Christian minority.
Ayloush, who was a delegate
to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., casts
the United States as controlled by Israeli interests. At a 2008 CAIR
banquet in San Diego, he imagined “an America that respects and
humanizes religion. It’s an America that is free to act on its values
and not on the interests of any foreign lobby.”
He is advertising his campaign via his Twitter and Facebook
pages, stating that “for over 14 years, I have been a fundraiser and
activist for many Democratic Party campaigns. I have also helped
register thousands of new voters. I work for a national civil liberties
In addition to Ayloush’s sketchy personal statements, his organization — CAIR — is rooted
in a U.S.-based Hamas-support network and has a history of defending
accused terrorists and terror financiers. In 2009, a senior FBI official wrote that the agency could not determine whether CAIR leaders continue to be connected to Hamas.
