Police shut down event promoting Constitution on orders from Islamic, terror support group CAIR

by Doug Book,  staff writer

A Michigan police department has made it clear that freedom of speech and the Constitutional right to peaceably assemble may only be enjoyed upon approval by the terror-promoting, Islamic group CAIR.

On January 26th, Michigan State Representative David Agema and others hosted an event entitled “Constituting Michigan—Founding Principles Act” in the Allegan High School auditorium. The purpose of the event was “…to inform the public about the importance of honoring the United States Constitution, to recognize the internal threat to America posed by radical Muslims and the dangers to our free society caused by the imposition of Sharia law.” (1)

As the Michigan House sponsor of HB 4769, “The Restriction of Application of Foreign Laws Act” it is Representative Agema’s goal to ban the use of foreign or Sharia law by Michigan courts “…when those laws conflict with fundamental rights protected by the Constitution of the United States and the State of Michigan.” (1)

But Michigan executive director of the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) Dawud Walid strongly opposes Agema’s House bill and upon being advised of the planned program at the high school, wrote a letter to school officials complaining about the event.

It is important to note that CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, the largest terror-funding proceeding in US legal history. An organization with proven ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood which regularly uses its limitless financial resources to intimidate and silence critics with frivolous court actions, CAIR is managed nationally by radical Islamic convert Ibrahim Hooper.

It was under Hooper’s direction that CAIR co-sponsored a conference at Brooklyn College during which the crowd was led in a song with lyrics proclaiming “No to the Jews, Descendants of the Apes.” Clearly a first class organization, is CAIR. (2)

Yet when school officials informed Allegan police that Michigan CAIR director Walid was upset, officers immediately descended on the high school to break up Representative Agema’s dangerous attempt to celebrate and support the nation’s founding document.

On April 30th the Thomas More Law Center filed suit on behalf of Agema and event co-sponsors. “This case seeks to protect and vindicate fundamental constitutional rights…under the 1st and 14th Amendments to the Constitution…and Michigan law…” wrote the Law Center in the filing. (3)  

But even when a violation of Constitutional rights is as obvious as that perpetrated by Allegan police the Thomas More Law Center might have its hands full. One year ago the Department of Justice DECLINED to prosecute CAIR in the Holy Land Foundation case over cries of outrage from FBI and other DOJ employees who had worked on the indictment and in spite of ample evidence of the organizations guilt. Apparently, protocols from the Imam of Pennsylvania Avenue strongly discourage any exercise which might place Muslim advocates of terrorism in a bad light.

It’s a disgrace that a radical, terror supporting, Islamic organization should have the authority to order the actions of Michigan police against law abiding American citizens. It will be imperative to follow the progress of this action through the federal court.

    1. The link you have provided here looks to me to be a twin to the link above, but this one works while the one above produces an error message! If I'm not missing a difference between the two, I don't understand why one should work properly and the other not!

  1. Obama is arrogating absolute power and authority to himself. Over the weekend, CiR will post a piece discussing the almost inevitable necessity of a 2nd American Revolution should Obama win the next election.

  2. There is no need to further convince any true natural born Citizen of the good old USA that Islam is an oppressive anti-civil cult, an insidious scourge on our Judeo-Christian way of life and an unredeemable pustulant social cancer that would destroy our fundamental God given freedoms. Down with political correctness, I say. We must loudly proclaim the truth that Mohamed was nothing more than an evil murderous pedophile and just as loudly proclaim that those 70 percent of his adherents who, by their silence, passively support the 30 percent or so of his actively terroristic spawn share just as fully in their criminal guilt. Simply put, CAIR's evil meme simply should be righteously completely stamped out of existence. Sharia law has absolutely NO place in a free society.
