CAIR (HAMAS) seeks applicants for “Rosa Parks” civil liberties scholarship?

The Tampa based Florida Family Association reports:

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) plans to present a scholarship at their national banquet on September 28, 2013 named after civil rights matriarch Rosa Parks.

  • Rosa Parks was an African-American civil rights activist, whom the U.S. Congress called “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement“.
  • CAIR’s choice of a Christian woman to name their civil liberties award after appears hypocritical.
  • One of CAIR’s top agenda items is to defend Sharia law in the United States.
  • Sharia law contains Islamic doctrine that oppresses women.
  • CAIR did not select one of the many Muslim female civil rights heroes, such as Dr. Hawa Abdi or Gelareh Bagherzadeh, after which to name their scholarship.
  • Nowhere in Rosa Parks biography is there any mention of the words Islam or Muslim.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold their annual banquet on Saturday, September 28, 2013, 5:30 PM to 10 PM, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.


Omar Ahmad, Chairman and founder of Council on American Islamic Relations.

“Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam … Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”  Omar Ahmad told a crowded audience of Muslims in 1998 according to a San Ramon Valley Heraldnews report by Lisa Gardiner.At the Islamic Association of Palestine’s third annual convention in Chicago in November 1999, Omar Ahmad gave a speech at a youth session praising suicide bombers who “kill themselves for Islam.” “Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam — that is not suicide. They kill themselves for Islam,” he said as reported by the Washington Times.

Nihad Awad, CAIR Executive Director

The Investigative Project on Terrorism reports in part:Before helping to launch CAIR, Nihad Awad worked as public relations director for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) in 1993 and 1994. A 2001 Immigration and Naturalization Service memo documented IAP’s support for Hamas and found that the “facts strongly suggest” that IAP was “part of Hamas’ propaganda apparatus.”Awad publicly declared “I am in support of the Hamas movement,” during a March 1994 symposium at Barry University.

CAIR, whose former name was “The Islamic Association of Palestine” issued this March 1, 2012 PRNewswire-USNewswire report: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today released a community toolkit designed to assist those seeking to preserve America’s ideal of religious pluralism in the face of unconstitutional “anti-Sharia” bills that have been introduced in more than 20 states nationwide.”

Some provisions of Sharia law are antithetical to the rights and liberties afforded under the United States Constitution.

Muslims living in America should not be bound by U.S. law, according to an official of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who delivered the controversial message to a Muslim crowd in Austin, Texas.  “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.  World Net Daily March 2013.

FBI’s Most-Wanted Ads Blocked by Muslim Brotherhood Group (CAIR) ‘Most Wanted’ ads help the FBI gain information about the whereabouts of dangerous terrorists. CAIR and its allies got the ads taken down.  The Clarion Project, June 27, 2013.

The list of CAIR officials who have made apologetic comments in the public regarding terrorists is well documented and  extensive.
