Terror front-group CAIR seeks to bully Romney into renouncing critics of Islam

by Doug Book,  staff writer

The Hamas-linked, terror supporting Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is hoping to coerce Mitt Romney into public “submission” by demanding he explain the reason for his one-on-one meeting with retired Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin last week.

That all might be familiar with the players, CAIR is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the biggest terror-financing case in American history. According to a CAIR document entered into evidence at the trial, the peace-loving organization proudly admits that “…their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”  (1)

Of course, an unindicted co-conspirator is a potential defendant against whom ample evidence of guilt has been assembled, yet which, for tactical reasons of the prosecution, will not be formally charged at trial.

Jerry Boykin was a Delta Force Operations Officer and recipient of the Bronze Star, 2 Purple Hearts, 2 Legions of Merit and the Air Medal. (2) He has never been shy about making clear his sentiments concerning Islam. “Why do they [radical Muslims] hate us? Why do they hate us so much? Ladies and gentlemen, the answer to that is because we’re a Christian nation,” said the General during a speech at an Oregon church. (3)

Boykin believes in “…not extending First Amendment protection to Islam as a political system that is authoritarian, supremacist, and at variance…with the rights and freedoms acknowledged by the U.S. Constitution.” For years, Muslims have argued that Sharia—Islamic law as put forth in the Quran—should take precedence over constitutionally guaranteed rights or state and federal statute. That of course could make quite legal the Sharia-approved norms of honor killing, amputating the hand of a thief and beheading for the egregious crime of apostasy! (4)

As might be expected, CAIR claims Boykin to be an Islamophobic extremist, a near lunatic who “…regularly traffics in wild-eyed conspiracy theories,” and “…[fights] the perceived threat of Sharia law full-time.” (5)

The question is whether Mitt Romney will renounce Jerry Boykin and the general’s persistent efforts to expose Islam for what it truly is– a despicable, 1400 year old pursuit of power masquerading as a religion.

As Jihad Watch creator Robert Spencer writes, “This will be a test for Romney: will he kowtow to the Islamic supremacists and allow them to dictate with whom he can speak and consult?” “Or will he tell them that he is not going to take orders from a Hamas-linked, Muslim Brotherhood front group?”  (4)

Conservatives stand to learn a great deal about the Republican candidate by his response to the demands of those who would make Sharia the law of the land and dictate with whom United States president may associate.
