CAIR Attacks ADL

Posted by Atilla89 on August 20, 2007

The Saudi-funded radical front group calling itself the Council on American Islamic Relations, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, has launched a major attack against the Anti-Defamation League. More from Newsblaze

A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today accused the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of seeking to hinder the due process rights of American Muslims by using “smears and exclusionary tactics” that exploit growing Islamophobia in American society.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said those smears appeared in a recent ADL news release targeting members of a coalition defending the legal rights of officials of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Muslim charity currently on trial in Texas. In its release, the ADL falsely claimed that members of the coalition have been “tainted by their own murky associations with radical organizations and individuals.”

A CAIR statement issued today in reaction to the ADL’s allegations said:

“It is regrettable that the Anti-Defamation League, which claims to defend American civil liberties, would seek to exploit the growing level of Islamophobia in our society by using the same smears and exclusionary tactics that have in the past been used by anti-Semites to target the Jewish community.

“Unfortunately, the ADL has a history of seeking to marginalize and disenfranchise American Muslims in an attempt to stifle an alternative viewpoint on U.S. policy in the Middle East.”

That “alternative viewpoint” is, of course, the viewpoint of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

“For too long, the ADL has allowed its blind support for Israel’s brutal policies toward the Palestinians and its zero-sum approach to public debate on the Middle East conflict to unnecessarily poison relations between the Jewish and American Muslim communities.

“We call on the ADL to end its campaign of exclusion and to join with American Muslims in seeking to make our nation one that is both safe and free of intolerance and hatred.”

So how about not supporting terrorist organisations like Hamas, CAIR?
