“Resistance” is just more of what Hamas-linked CAIR is best at: victimhood posturing. The idea that Muslims are facing large-scale persecution and harassment in Trump’s America is hysterical posturing designed to gain special accommodation. It pays to be a victim in America today, and CAIR plays the part to the hilt.
The banquet was Saturday evening. Quigley spoke and Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs was there. Here are Quigley and Frerichs at the Banquet with Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ahmed Rehab (center):
That photo is one of several that Frerichs tweeted out. He was actually proud of having been there.
Here are two more of Frerichs’ photos:
Yes, that bottom photo features Frerichs (right) with Ahmed Rehab again. Rehab has in the past refused to condemn Hamas and claimed that the U.S. government was fabricating incidences of jihad terrorism. Rehab has also become considerably less flamboyant since posing for the photo below, which he had posted on his personal website in 2001 and I present here unretouched, exactly as it was presented there:
Anyway, why are Quigley and Frerichs so happy about appearing at a CAIR function? Would they be this happy to be photographed at a neo-Nazi function? What’s the big difference? CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials 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 about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. A CAIR operative recently called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
Quigley and Frerichs are both Democrats, but there are plenty of Republican Useful Idiots as well. That any American politician of any political camp would appear at any function of this unsavory group speaks to the confusion of our age, and of how casual U.S. officials have become in their acceptance of hatred for the country they are supposed to be serving.
