"I think it would be good if he stepped into the fray," said Ibrahim ("CAIR does not support these groups [Hamas] publicly") Hooper, the national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), "and told other Republicans to cool it."Despite the happy face the Lapdog Media gives CAIR as a "moderate" group, they've ignored links for Islamic extremism. Hooper stated in 1993 “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.” Likewise, at a Northern California gathering in 1998, CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad stated: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."
CAIR has been a primary leader in supporting the planned development of Cordoba House, an Islamic community center near Ground Zero that would include a mosque. Hooper told Fox Wednesday that he believes the former president would support the mosque plans, based on Bush's continual effort, during his administration, to separate the acts of the September 11 terrorists from the Islam religion as a whole.
"It's interesting to have people openly longing for the Bush administration," Hooper said, "but if he did anything right, it was that - to studiously avoid the perception that we're at war with Islam."
If Hooper's remarks about the former president seem surprising, it's with good reason. CAIR hasn't always bestowed Bush with praise, previously referring to some of his foreign policy decisions as "unjust" and "disturbing." The group also accused Bush of contributing to "a rising level of hostility to Islam and the American-Muslim community" after the former president declared in 2006 that America was "at war with Islamic fascists."
While the Islamists and their useful liberal idiots breathlessly wait for the guy they hated for eight years to help out "That One," another member of the Party of Treason--anti-War on Terror Senator Russ Feingold--has sided against 9/11 families and Americans outraged at the idea of this Victory Mosque.
When asked about the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis. said he supports religious freedom and if you want to put up a house of worship you should be able to.Attention Sen. Feingold, why then is a Christian church destroyed by rubble from the World Trade Center being forbidden to rebuild?
"I do not decide for Muslims where they want to buy property and have a religious facility any more than I do for Christians or anybody else. That clearly is not my role," he said when asked his opinion at a Journal Times Editorial Board meeting Tuesday.
He continued: "If the zoning laws and everything else are OK, and you have a piece
of private property and you want to put up a house of worship in my country, this country, you should be able to do it."
Feingold has gone out of his way to oppose the War on Terror every opportunity he can. He was the only senator to oppose the Patriot Act. When the NSA surveillance program was illegally leaked, Feingold attacked then-President Bush and claimed he broke the law.
Now, Sen. Feingold is in a tough re-election campaign. His slap in the face to 9/11 families should be enough for voters to send his treasonous ass into an early retirement.
