CAIR Trots
On CSpan

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is known to many as a radical Islamic front group. From what I know, the characterization seems fair. The website anti-CAIR was sued by CAIR for calling tagging them with such monikers, but when the case went to court, it got settled, and anti-CAIR still exists, and they still say the same things about CAIR.

That pretty much tells you what you need to know, huh?

Anyway, check this out:

Nihad Awad, Executive Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations, appeared on C-SPAN today hosting Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer. In his speech, Awad highly recommended a book by antisemitic ex-Congressman Paul Findley, praising Findley as “a pioneer in promoting America’s interests in the Middle East.”

The book that Nihad Awad described as “an eye-opener,” They Dare to Speak Out, is oddly not for sale at Amazon. (Correction: it is at Amazon.)

So, being the curious type, I searched Google—and discovered that Findley’s book is highly regarded not just by CAIR.

The Google search reveals a squirming nest of neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers, radical Marxist/leftists, and radical Islamists: ‘paul findley’ ‘they dare to speak out’.

They’re all here: Stormfront, Counterpunch,, Ernst Zundel, Vanguard News Network, Soundvision, and MPACUK, just to name a few. They all seem to think Findley’s book is a work of genius.

Just like CAIR’s Nihad Awad.
