MUSLIM GROUP Makes DEMAND That Every Confederate Statue Be BANNED And REMOVED

Muslim group wants state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

The Muslim activist group CAIR announced that they are joining with BLM and Antifa in demanding that the government erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. 

First, a little background on who CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is – and who runs it – this is important!

Nihad Awad is among the founders of CAIR and serves as its executive director. In that role, he has attained a degree of political clout, invited to stand beside President George W. Bush at the Islamic Center of Washington days after the 9/11 attacks. Before that, Vice President Al Gore appointed Awad to a civil rights advisory panel for the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security.

These are influential recognition’s for a man with past ties to Hamas, designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States in 1995.

Wait, it gets better.

Before helping launch CAIR in 1994, Awad worked as public relations director for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) in 1993 and 1994 in the United States. 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.”

In November 2004, a federal magistrate judge held IAP civilly liable for $156 million in the 1996 shooting of an American citizen by a Hamas member in the West Bank.

Evidence released in the trial reveals that IAP was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorist organizationPalestine Committee” in the United States. Awad is the 32nd person included on the Palestine Committee’s internal telephone list.

Nihad Awad was born in Amman New Camp, a Palestinian refugee camp in AmmanJordan, and attended Salaheddine High School in Achrafieh in Jordan. He moved to Italy and moved to the United States in the mid 1990s to pursue his university studies.

The timeline shows that Nihad Awad was NOT an American citizen when he founded CAIR in 1994. There is no record, that I can find, of when he did become an American citizen.

In 2014, the United Arab Emirates designated CAIR, a TERRORIST GROUP, which Barack Obama refused to accept and attempted to reverse the UAE’s designation of the group as a terrorist organization.

Why is that important? Because Nihad Awad is demanding that the government erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately stating the following: 

“Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in OUR nation’s history,” – OUR history is NOT his to erase! 

They’ve made a “template” (see below)  proposing the steps that should be taken.

The Daily Caller reported:

Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

“A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

“Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.

Requesting the Removal of All Confederate Memorials, Flags, Street Names, and Symbols from Public Spaces and Property

•Whereas the preservation of these memorials validates the subjugation experienced by African-Americans due to their size, prominent placement and public display;
•Whereas the investments and arrangement made to recognize Confederate figures communicates core beliefs that promote the endurance of white supremacy and racism;
•Whereas every Confederate memorial, flag, street name, and symbol proclaims the injustices and suffering experienced by African-Americans as insignificant and dismissible;
•Whereas every Confederate memorial, flag, street name, and symbol commemorates and honors those who fought to enslave African-Americans;
•Whereas every Confederate memorial, flag, street name, and symbol diminishes the numerous contributions and services African-Americans made, and continue to make, to the United States;
•Whereas every Confederate memorial, flag, street name, and symbol celebrates individuals who campaigned against giving African-Americans their rights and liberty;
•Whereas every public symbol that references the Confederacy in the United States glorifies individuals who sought to divide the nation and preserve white supremacy;
•Whereas the removal of all memorials, flags, street names, and symbols of Confederacy from public spaces and property reaffirms to the public, especially African-Americans and other minority groups, that we do not endorse the ideals these objects represent;
•Whereas the removal of all public references to the Confederacy would respect the entitlement of African-Americans and others to equal protection of their civil and human rights;

Resolved, that the [official body]—

  • Moves all Confederate memorials, flags, street names, and symbols from public spaces and property to museums where they are not glorified and solely used for historical, analytical and educational purposes.
  • Changes all streets and institutions named after Confederates to honor the names of African-American and other civil rights leaders.

According to Reuters, undeterred by violence over the planned removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, state and city leaders across various U.S. southern states said this week they would step up efforts to pull such monuments from public spaces.
