CAIR Targets Dennis Prager Over Koran Oath Comments

Apparently CAIR wants Dennis Prager off of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum Board because of Parger’s opposition to the use of the Koran in government swearing-in ceremonies for US elected officials. The juicy irony of a Muslim extremist group like CAIR being concerned about who serves on the rather obscure board of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum seems lost on them.

A quick reminder: The President of the world’s most influential Muslim nation, Iran, completely denies that the Holocaust even happened and is threatening to “wipe off the map” the only Jewish country in the world, where is CAIR on that?: The Mufti of Jerusalem and father of Palestinian nationalism was a strong supporter of Nazi Germany during WWII and the holocaust. The anti-Semitic ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ is a best-selling book throughout the Muslim world, etc… CAIR’s response? That’s all less important than columnist Dennis Prager expressing his opinion.

Prager’s Position: "It has to do with the fact that it's not the Bible," he said. "If a Mormon-American decided to substitute the Book of Mormon for the Bible, I would have the same problem. If a scientologist wanted L. Ron Hubbard's 'Dyanetics' to be the book, I would have a problem," Prager said. "George Washington began this movement. He was the one to bring a Bible and swear on it. Every president except one, Teddy Roosevelt, because it was right after the assassination of James McKinley and they didn't have time for a Bible. And every president has done this."

CAIR’s Position: "No one who holds such bigoted, intolerant and divisive views should be in a policy-making position at a taxpayer-funded institution that seeks to educate Americans about the destructive impact hatred has had, and continues to have, on every society. As a presidential appointee, Prager's continued presence on the council would send a negative message to Muslims worldwide about America's commitment to religious tolerance."

Wow! Is that an invitation for Muslims "worldwide" to riot? Because we all know how closely folks in the Muslim world follow who is on the Board of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. For a Muslim Extreemist group like CAIR to lecture anyone on "tolorance" is a bit much.

  1. CAIR is to tolerance what rabies is to doggie obedience school

    and of course they don't apply such standards to their own candidates who hold explicitly bigoted views or their home country of saudi arabia
