The Real Agenda of the Council on Islamic Relations ("CAIR")
by J. Grant Swank, Jr., Pastor
9 May 2004

CAIR's slogan "Building a Better America" is a code phrase for instituting an Islamic theocracy in America with the Koran governing as holy writ. CAIR doesn't want Islam to become equal to other religions, but "to become dominant."

One of the most aggressive forces in the United States at present is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Its web site in particular gives its agenda. It’s unnerving to read it. CAIR is not indirect about broadcasting its program.

Naturally, it uses the "gloss over" public relations technique now implemented to the Islamic leadership’s shining. So the site begins with a very attractive map of the United States. Overlaying the map are the words: BUILDING A BETTER AMERICA. . .ONE MEMBER AT A TIME. Of course, the "one member at a time" is joining the CAIR roster.

From that juncture onward, "building a better America" is by destroying present-tense America in order to institute an Islamic theocracy with the Koran governing as holy writ. Mosque clerics will rule in religion and politics.

"The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has given money to Islamic terrorists and Islamic terrorist organizations, including Hamas, Al-Qaeda, and several others. Its leaders have constantly stated their support for Islamic terrorists. ‘Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, 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." — Oma Ahmad, Co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Other CAIR members and leaders have made similar statements."

Those acquainted with the Koran know it to be a garble of mix-and-match. There are endearing sentences regarding Jews and Christians. Then there are the killing passages in which Allah calls for Muslims to murder the infidels — non-Muslims. If infidels are not wiped out, they are to be enslaved. Plain and simple.

This is exactly what Muslims are attempting in other countries. America is not exempt from their field of dreams. Theirs is not a complex agenda, hence Muslim murderers global get the message quickly, all the way down to first grade level in murder mentoring schools.

Here’s a sampling of killing chapters and verses from the unholy writ, the Koran:

9:28, O ye who believe! Truly the Pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the Sacred Mosque.

9:29, Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

9:39, Unless ye go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place; but Him ye would not harm in the least.

9:73, O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell - an evil refuge indeed.

When a Muslim is confronted with those killing passages, he glosses them over by saying they’re outdated, taken out of context, or, referring to Turkey, says that, for example, that country is a contemporary profile of a secular state not adhering to every chapter and verse in the Koran. All the while, Muslims continue around the world to murder in the name of the Koran and "God is great! God great!" allegiance to Allah.

So whose Koran is outdated and whose holy writ is taken out of context and in what Muslim country has secularization squashed Islamic killers international who seek daily to wipe out non-Muslims? Back to the "gloss over" public relations: One of the links within CAIR site invites with this headline: "View a partial list of CAIR's work with local state and federal law enforcement authorities." Now come on now: for what benign Islamic purposes do you surmise community-caring Muslims are going to link up to local police stations and federal law enforcers?

Another lures with: "Let's help the state of North Carolina. 121 libraries sponsored and 276 libraries left to go!" Therefore, for what high-minded Islamic purposes do you imagine academician Muslims siding up to local librarians? Is it to follow through with the "gloss over" Islamic publications now circulating presenting Islam as a "peace religion?" These publications are already in our middle and high schools, thanks to local educators inviting Islamic instructors to speak to their teachers and administrators.

In a CAIR section entitled, "Promoting Islam," the first paragraph begins: "An advertising campaign designed to foster greater understanding of Islam and to counter a rising tide of anti-Muslim rhetoric in the United States. The weekly ads, each explaining one aspect of Islam, are distributed to Muslim communities around America for placement in local newspapers."

Are American citizens as aggressive with local media to educate communities as to the murdering purposes of worldwide Islam? Our city newspaper has already given voluminous coverage to Muslim holy days, customs, family life, and community involvement, so much so that one would think the holy family had come to town for pinnacle habitation.

CAIR’s Civil Rights Report on behalf of Muslims in America starts with: "The Status of Muslim Civil Rights in the United States 2003." There you have it! If non-Muslims don’t bow down to the infiltrating Muslims, then haul the infidels off to court. Americans are going to impinge upon Islamic rights. For sure. Watch as one American after another appears in court for one "anti-Islamic crime" or another. If it can happen with the homosexuals’ pressure, it can happen with the Muslim public relations propaganda. Anything unreasonable today works.

To enable Muslims to communicate more suavely with the US Congress, the following publication is made available to readers: "U.S. Congress Handbook: This complete guide to the executive, judicial and legistlative (sic) branches of the United States Government." Can the national leadership be as ignorant regarding Islam as the city council in Hamtramck, Michigan? You bet!

To school Muslims in how better to communicate with US President George W. Bush and US Senator John F. Kerry, a link is described as: "Issues of importance to the American Muslim community and candidate positions."

"How to Challenge Anti-Muslim Rhetoric on Television" is a site guide in how to see through just what the headline reads. Therefore, freedom of speech in the US is under attack as I type. It will mushroom for Muslims do not give up until they have conquered all airwaves.

"TAKE ACTION NOW" is at the top of CAIR’s site. In order for Muslims to see through their program, the site managers are highly recommending the following action be taken immediately: "Contact WTKK-FM General Manager, to ask that he fire Jay Severin for his anti-Muslim remarks."

Muslims rule. Muslims want Severin off the air. Fired. Gone. Zap. Muslims are out to win out on every issue. They work. They phone. They write letters. They go to city councils. They put ads in papers. They show up at executives’ front doors. They don’t give up. "God is great! God is great!" And Allah is his name.

There is even a "MUSLIM COMMUNITY SAFETY KIT" available to site readers. This is "Turnspeak." It’s using the technique of attacking your enemy but making your enemy to appear as if he’s attacking you. Mosque cleric went to Hamtramck Michigan city council asking for mosque loudspeakers to blare five times each day the "call to prayer." Then when citizens balked, they were made to appear as villains, attackers, the public enemy.

So in this back-and-forth, CAIR says it will provide Muslims with "MUSLIM COMMUNITY SAFETY KIT" just in case things get out of hand in the enemy’s court against the Muslims. Islamics are now ready for a confrontation, having provided enough fodder for a confrontation. But in the end, they will make it appear as if they have been plotted against. "Turnspeak" it is.

Finally, Muslims are to communicate directly and regularly with the site. Read: "Submit a report detailing a positive or negative experience or incident." CAIR is keeping records. They are tallying. They are archiving. They are going to reveal the evidence.

While America dawdles, Muslims dare to take over the nation — now.

Remember: those who worship Allah, regarding Koran as holy, take literally its dictates. When they do, they assure their souls eternal bliss. Those so-called "moderate Muslims" who will not join the slaying of non-Muslims, will themselves be slain by the Muslim orthodox.

The Koran reads:

25:52, So obey not the disbelievers, but strive against them herewith with a great endeavour.

25:68, Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred except for just cause, nor commit fornication; - and any that does this (not only) meets punishment. (But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy.

37:22-23, "Bring ye up," it shall be said, "The wrong-doers and their wives, and the things they worshipped- Besides Allah, and lead them to the Way to the (Fierce) Fire!

47:4, Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens.
