LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- "It's outrageous that CAIR would attempt to silence the freedom of speech of someone who dares to connect the teachings of Islam to terrorism," said Dr. Gary Cass of DefendChristians.Org. "Councilman Jon Dumitru, one of our brave first responders, has every right to say what he wants. CAIR is an organization with known links to the vicious Muslim Brotherhood. They seem angry that Islamic propaganda and intimidation doesn't work on all Americans."
The Los Angeles chapter of the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), has taken aim at Coucilman Jon Dumitru, a politician in Orange, California because Dumitru published his strong feelings about Islam on 9/11 on his own computer.
According to CAIR, "On the anniversary of 9/11, the Councilman posted a picture of the burning Twin Towers on his official Facebook page, and wrote underneath: 'It was 10 years ago today that most Americans learned first-hand of the teachings of Islam and the Koran being filled with messages of peace....as they killed thousands of our fellow Americans! Today I remember those lost, left behind, and those across the world searching for these pure evil terrorists and dispatching them from this world! WE WILL NEVER FORGET, WE WILL NEVER FORGIVE!'"
"Can anyone blame Dumitru for his feeling after seeing hundreds of his fellow first responders killed in the name of Allah?" said Dr. Cass. "CAIR wants us to think Muslims were the victims. This is just another ploy to keep Americans off balance when confronting the threat of encroaching Islam."
CAIR responded. "Your hateful statement in which you falsely insinuate that the teachings of Islam and the Quran would allow the terrorist attacks of 9/11 is deeply troubling to all Muslims, including many who live in your city. Muslims across the world, especially those here in the United States have unequivocally condemned the 9/11 attacks and all forms of terrorism. Using the tragedy of 9/11 as an opportunity to spread misinformed views about Islam and the Quran is a failure of leadership. At a time when our entire nation was mourning that tragic day and emphasizing unity among all Americans, you unfortunately decided to falsely blame an entire faith community. We have learned from history that such smears and stereotypes have only led to scapegoating of entire communities."
"Poppycock and tommyrot," said Dr. Cass. "We know what Islam is all about and some Americans will not be silenced or intimidated."
