Ibrahim Hooper, National "Communications Director" for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
Do Not Be Fooled: These Characters Are Not Cartoons
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a Muslim, some say terrorist, mouthpiece in America. A non-profit, propaganda organization, it is funded in a significant part by Middle Eastern sources such as the Al Maktoum Foundation, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, and even grants from U.S. taxpayers.
CAIR's stated goals are to promote a positive image (religion of peace and harmony) of Islam in the United States, empower the American Muslim community, and promote understanding (propaganda). CAIR's national spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper, is neither an Islamic scholar nor religious leader. Therefore, his peaceable words to American infidels have no more weight with Muslims than mine or yours -zero. Ibrahim Hooper, a convert to Islam, makes an excellent propagandist, saying:
I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future...But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education. [ed. education that promotes muslim immigration, conversion and propagation (Islam allows multiple wives) -all of which are intended to create a significant bloc of Islamic voters in America. The number now is sufficient to swing a national election, perhaps a clue to why Republicans have been pussyfooting with these intolerant-dels].
Muhammad's image is conjectural. He took up the sword late in his life and was a warrior for ten years. Muhammad engaged in caravan raids and took part in battles. Critics say that his wars went well beyond self-defense.
The bust is one of his most infamous followers, the Muslim butcher, Tamerlane, also known as the Scourge of God. He invaded Baghdad in June of 1401; after the capture of the city, 20,000 of its citizens were massacred, for one example. Timur ordered that every soldier should return with at least two severed human heads to show. The devastations of Delhi (twice) were worse.
Remember, in Islam there is one god, and it must be their god, infidels. Tamerlane was, of course, a peaceful butcher (yeah, right). Islam promotes harmony thusly: when everyone left is Muslim, there will be harmony.
