Demo victories cheered by mullahs and CAIR
The Democrats weren’t alone in their election night revelry. The rejoicing extended as far geographically as Tehran and ideologically as the Hamas-loving Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei lauded the results as a victory for Iran. “Since Washington’s hostile and hawkish policies have always been against the Iranian nation,” Khamenei stated, “this defeat is actually an obvious victory for the Iranian nation.”
Closer to home, U.S.-based CAIR, whose organizational ancestry includes the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), founded by Hamas senior member Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, celebrated the election of its beloved son and first-ever Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison (D-MN).
Amid echoes of “Allahu Akbar!” at Ellison’s victory celebration, one could almost hear the words of CAIR’s founding board chairman (and former IAP president) Omar Ahmed: “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.” Now, Ellison, along with fellow Democrat House members Elijah Cummings, Albert Wynn and Sheila Jackson Lee, will be hobnobbing with anti-America’s best as they address CAIR’s annual banquet this weekend.
