The CAIR and Reverend Falwell
(reminiscent of "The Devil and Daniel Webster")

LISTEN to Pete Fisher LIVE on the only World Wide Jewish-Israel radio show, KolHalev, today around 4:00 or 4:30 pm PST, 7:00 pm EST, the Joe Kaufman show

by Pete Fisher

Last night on FOX during the O’Reilly Factor we saw Reverend Falwell debate with Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of the Center on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) concerning the passing out of religious tracts to the Indonesians as aid was given out to them. I have offered some excerpts from the interview.

For some reason, CAIR seems to think it is a questionable deed that Falwell has committed by putting out the Christian message while giving people medical supplies and comfort. His statement is as such:

Awad: "Our objection rises from the fact that Jerry Falwell and others are trying to prey on the victims, the victims who are suffering and hurting. Those people who are suffering, they have no choice but to accept what you offer them."

Awad: "…Muslims revere, respect and hold Jesus in the highest regard…"

Awad: "Well, I think knowing his background, especially now, today, [he or we] try to win the hearts and minds of the Muslim world and even not the Muslim world, everybody outside the United States, his efforts has been divisive, his statements have been offensive and inaccurate, so if..."

I will stop here and add my own opinion on the matter. First of all, as Mr. Awad stated about Muslims not knowing about Jesus is false, in one respect he is correct. Muslims do believe a Prophet named Jesus walked the Earth. However, as stated in a previous article of mine, the Jesus of Islam is not the Jesus of Christianity. There are too many completely opposite statements between the Koran and the Bible to allow any amalgamation of the two tenets. Reverend Falwell was making that point when he got cut off.

OK, Mr. Awad. Perhaps Reverend Falwell does have an agenda to share his faith. But I have seen the many lawsuits CAIR has pursued all over the nation because they believe Islam has been misrepresented, and if I am correct in my understanding of your web site and full page ads around the nation, you have tried to remove Islam from the deeds of terrorists, am I correct? You desire to have people view Islam and Muslims differently than terrorists, no? If I am wrong in my assumption, please correct me.

However, do you NOT see the hypocrisy in stating that you view the sharing of the Christian faith by Reverend Falwell as erroneous due to what you said was his background? Or can we all assume that what you said is correct and we can ALL judge according to ones background?

I can appreciate that. In fact, I think it entirely ironic that a representative of CAIR would make that statement seeing as some former officers and members of CAIR have been convicted for having ties to terrorist groups.

I also find it ironic that CAIR has roots in the IAF, Islamic Association for Palestine, does it not? That is a background worth considering.

I also find it ironic that Reverend Falwell’s’ statement about Islamic proselyte activities within our prison systems has become a massive activity, even surpassing Christian efforts. Teaching Islam to the oppressed and needy I see.

Or do you not think that people in prison, who have come from harsh backgrounds and many who will never see the light of day due to their criminal activity, are as oppressed and in dire need as the Muslims of Indonesia? Because if it is a bad thing that Reverend Falwell did in Indonesia, as you insinuated was an act of preying on the needy and those who suffer and are hurt, then it is my belief that Islam has no place in prisons where people are without hope for freedom, physically hurt and spiritually needy. Tell me, Mr. Awad, what is the difference between Christians preying on needy people in Indonesia, and Muslims preying on needy people in America and elsewhere?

And if I am to take someone’s background to judge their actions Mr. Awad then the harshest judgment would go to CAIR and its background, which means I should be able to fully assess the actions and intentions of CAIR due to its background and affiliations. Which is to say has suspected terror ties in many Americans’ understanding?

Perhaps the same measure that you judge others by Mr. Awad has been meted back to you. And if you dislike other people making assumptions about Islam and Muslims due to their assumed or factual backgrounds, my suggestion would be to not make those assumptions and accusations against non-Islamic groups and individuals.

Because when the balances are weighed Mr. Awad, CAIR bears the heavier burden of questionable backgrounds according to the means by which you judge. And I believe we all agree with you on that aspect and I feel Islam and the actions of CAIR will continue to be judged in the manner of which you spoke. Judgment shall be meted by your background and previous actions.

So please do not complain when it your turn in the court of public opinion. After all, a background is a background.
