CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. A California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and a Florida chapter distributed pamphlets with the same message. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented, and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates.
And now Hamas-linked CAIR’s Nezar Hamze is giving active shooter training in Florida mosques. What could possibly go wrong?
Hamze is also helping the mosques get DHS money: “Hamze also is helping the mosque with prevention techniques and also helping the leaders apply for grants given by Homeland Security to religious institutions to beef up their own security.”
All this is based on the false assumption that mosques are under some kind of violent threat. The real threat is coming from the mosques, not going toward them, but no one seems concerned about that.
For some background, see this Newsmax show from last May, featuring Hamze and me, along with a relentlessly hostile and pro-Hamas-linked CAIR Ed Berliner.
Places of worship are only holy to the faithful.
“We think about it that way, but for somebody who wants to hurt somebody, for him, it’s not a holy place,” said Noureddiae, a member of the Islamic Society of Sarasota-Bradenton.
In the back of the prayer room, Nezar Hamze showed that. He pulled out two fake blue guns, and started firing. For over a minute, members of the mosque stared in shock and were frozen.
“Unfortunately this is exactly what is happening everywhere. People are just not prepared,” Hamze said.
Hamze travels the state for CAIR Florida, giving training to Islamic Centers about active shooting scenarios and self-defense.
“We need to make sure that the communities are trained and have a plan to deal with active shooters,” Hamze said. “Everyone in this country has to wake up. I think the entire country needs to get out of the victim mentality [because] it’s happening everywhere.”
That’s rich, coming from an official of an organization whose entire purpose and mission is to cultivate the victim mentality in Muslims in the U.S.
Hamze told the members about what to do. Run first. Hide if you can. But if you must…fight.
“You need to be thinking about these things. If you choose to fight, you need to realize you are probably sacrificing your life,” Hamze said.
Hamze also is helping the mosque with prevention techniques and also helping the leaders apply for grants given by Homeland Security to religious institutions to beef up their own security.
Hamze says he offers his training to anyone, and has already been asked to go into two synagogues and a church….
