Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) made a statement at a Senate Armed Services Committee this week that prompted Oklahoma’s Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to ask Inhofe for a meeting. My hubby found this piece in the TulsaWorld, who would not even print the word “CAIR.” See a video below.
During the Senate Armed Services Committee meeting, Inhofe said:
I for one, I know it’s not politically correct to say it, but I
belief in racial and ethnic profiling,” Sen. James Inhofe, an Oklahoma
Republican, said Thursday during a Senate Armed Service Committee
review of the Fort Hood shootings. “I think if you’re looking at people
getting on an airplane, and you have X amount of resources to get into
it, you need to get at the targets. …
“When you hear that not all Middle Easterners or Muslims between the
ages of 20 and 35 are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims or
Middle Easterners between the ages of 20 and 35, that’s by and large
CAIR, who the Tulsa World shamefully refrained from mentioning by name – in their article, CAIR was a Muslim civil libertities organization – is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation. The FBI has broken all relations with CAIR and has said they are affiliated with the the Palestinian terrorist political party, HAMAS. CAIR rushes to the defense of every Muslim disrupting our air travel. They file the fastest lawsuits this country has ever seen. They hang-out on Capitol Hill and Democrats embrace them, and when evidence was found that they paid “someone” to get two Muslim interns positions on sensitive offices inside Congress, CAIR came out swinging. Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has called for an IRS investigation into CAIR’s non-profit status. Yet the Tulsa World cannot call them by name?
CAIR’s response to Inhofe’s comments
It is disturbing to hear a member of the United States Senate suggest
that entire religious and ethnic groups should automatically be
considered terror suspects,” said Razi Hashmi, executive director of
CAIR-OK. “Our nation’s leaders have a duty not to exacerbate the
growing anti-Muslim sentiment in American society.
By painting all Muslims and Middle Easterners as suspects, Senator
Inhofe does a disservice to our nation and to its tradition of racial
and religious diversity.
To Mr. Hashmi, what Inhofe is telling you is that he has a responsibility to keep Americans, first free, and second safe. After he profiles you, and you pass the test, he will keep you free and he will keep you safe. That’s the goal. We don’t want the inconvenience, but we get it anyway, and we get searched, anyway. If you travel by air, and a jihadist takes the plane down, it won’t matter to him that one of his brothers is on the flight. The goal is not to let him on the flight. What is it you don’t get about that? Man-up and drop the arrogant posturing. You are getting on America’s last nerve.
I found the first video below at the BaltimoreSun. Strange that it was labeled “CAIR Video.” Well, it a CAIR video, on Youtube.com on the CAIRtv channel. There’s another video I hope you see: The Islamic Infiltration, Part 1: Inside Our Government, Armed with Our Secrets. Stick with the video until the former FBI agents is interviewed – and he speaks about CAIR. You can also access Part 2 after viewing Part 1. TulsaWorld – someone needs to sit down and watch The Islamic Infiltration. It will serve you well to do so.
