CAIR Writes Letter to Obama Against new Airport Security Measures

Back in mid-December the Council on America Relations (CAIR), admitted that hate crimes against Muslims were on the decline. Apparently they have forgotten that they made this statement, and have now said that the hate crimes are on the rise. They have flip flopped in their effort to shoot down our new airport security measures. Anything to destroy America.

‘Profiling’ of Muslims in US slammed

The increasing number of crimes caused by anti-Islam hatred has become alarming in the US, the Council on American Islamic Relations warned.

In a letter to US President Barack Obama, CAIR’s national executive director, Nihad Awad, complained about the situation.

Washington-based CAIR officials claim that new airport security guidelines, under which anyone traveling from or through 14 Muslim-majority nations will be required to go through enhanced screening techniques before boarding flights, will disproportionately target American Muslims who have family or spiritual ties to the Islamic world and are therefore subject to religious and ethnic profiling.

In a statement, the CAIR leadership claimed that the Transport Security Administration’s security directives would result in the profiling of Muslims.

“Under these new guidelines, almost every American Muslim who travels to see family or friends or goes on pilgrimage to Mecca will automatically be singled out for special security checks–that’s profiling,” said Awad.

While singling out travelers based on religion and national origin may make some people feel safer, it only serves to alienate and stigmatize Muslims and does nothing to improve airline security, he said.

“We all support effective security measures that will protect the traveling public from an attack such as that attempted on Christmas Day,” added Awad. “But knee-jerk policies will not address this serious challenge to public safety.”

Cuba, Sudan, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen are on the list of countries subject to the enhanced screening for travelers heading to the United States.

    Dam right we should do profiling. It's fun,adventurist and rewarding
    when an Islamist scumbag is caught.
    Even the Koran says that ….americans shall profile all muslims anywhere and everywhere they are found. If you see a muslim hiding
    benieth a rock you point him/her out and have them arrested so that
    profiling can be done swiftly and justice can be immediately obtain

    Imagine how they will whine when they are faced with being screened by that new technology that can see through the clothes…

    There was a Muslim on FOX News that said that Muslims will never allow that. Of course the reporter did not have the guts to challenge him on that statement.

      Then if they refuse, they should not be allowed to board the plane.

    Wow! What a verse!

    Maybe Muslims should just drive to their next terror attack site.

    Hey…Its not the blond blue eyed Swedes that are taking down airplanes.

    You look like a muslim terrorist…you should get searched.

    Hey, I see their point! How in the heck can martyr wannabes be successful if they get screened out???? CAIR is justifiably concerned that the poor bastards will be denied the opportunity to be instantly transported to paradise and miss out on all those virgin goats! That's probably why they're pissed. But hey, I'll write them an alternative plan…..they can blow up a mosque at home!!!! What a concept. They can help a whole bunch see allah!!!!!

    They would have a hard time driving to Mecca from here (hajj). But have we all noticed that those flights are NEVER threatened?! Either too or from – never have I heard of a Jihadist threatening those flights.

    Unfortunately our country will soon be on the rogue states list thanks to our traitors in politics and MSM. However, it is elections in september and this time the Sweden Democrates will most likely succeed inentering the parlament for the first time. If so it will signal the beginning of the end for political correctness and steer us on the same path as Denmark. As it is now it is like living in a nuthouse where the inmates is the ones ruling the asylum.

    Israel has found that profiling has done a lot for their airline security. Carry on, please, and more of it.
    Nothing to worry about, actually, if you are a non-bomb carrying passenger. Just be thankful that the bomb carrying ones will be caught, we hope. And anyway, Islam is growing all over the world. Could be the next one is a blonde blue eyed Scandinavian Moslem. It is a religion, not a race or nationality, remember?

    Fran, we need to be religion profiling as well as other aspects.

    Just clip their wings; keep them grounded. Then they will adopt another plan, and we can exclude them completely.

  14. January 6, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    What’s wrong with profiling if we know 100% sure that only Muslims are suicide bombers?

    Perhaps CAIR should be sending letters to all US muslims stating PLEASE STOP KILLING AMERICANS!

    Is that a crazy idea?
