CAIR Denounces Santorum’s Call for Profiling
CAIR Denouces Santorum’s Call For Profiling
One of my Google Alerts was triggered by an article about a CAIR press
release demanding that the GOP denounce Rick Santorum’s debate answer
on profiling. Video of the debate segment is linked below, and embedded
where possible. Play it twice, once to listen and once to watch
the facial expressions and gestures, particularly those of Rep. Paul
and Herman Cain.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
— The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on
Republican Party to
repudiate GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum‘s
call for profiling of American Muslims.
a debate aired on CNN last night, Santorum was asked if he would
support ethnic and religious profiling. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer,
the debate’s moderator, asked Santorum: “So just to be precise, is it
ethnic profiling, religious profiling, who would be profiled?”

Rick Santorum Calls for Profiling of Muslims
a statement released today, CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor said:
tossed aside every American’s constitutional right to
under the law in favor of discriminatory profiling of Muslims. Mr.
Santorum’s obvious lack of appreciation for the
Constitution and for
the rejection of
profiling by top law enforcement experts raises
about his ability to lead our multi-faith nation.

specialists reject racial profiling. President Bush called it
In 2009, President Obama
pledged to end the counterproductive practice.
remind Mr. Santorum that the Prophet Jesus (peace be
upon him), a man of Middle Eastern heritage, would fit his ‘profile.’
is time for all Republican presidential candidates to reject
Islamophobic rhetoric. Just as past candidates have learned the folly
of targeting other religious or ethnic minorities, serious presidential
hopefuls must reject the use anti-Muslim smears
and the exploitation of
Islamophobia for cheap political gain.”
also thanked another GOP presidential candidate, Representative Ron Paul of Texas, for
rejecting profiling and refusing to sacrifice the rule of law.
CAIR Legislative Fact Sheet states that profiling is
hinders anti-terrorism efforts and “diverts precious law
resources away from investigations of individuals who have been
to terrorist activity by specific and credible evidence.”
CAIR Legislative Fact Sheet on Profiling
this year, Santorum called “Sharia,” or Islamic
principles, “evil.” He told a group in New Hampshire:
“We need to define it and say what it is. And it is evil.” In a past
“lecture on Islam,” Santorum falsely claimed the Quran, Islam’s
revealed text, was written in “Islamic.”
Santorum, GOP Continue Anti-Sharia Campaign
week, CAIR called on state and national GOP leaders to demand the
resignation of a Tennessee lawmaker
after he suggested in a radio interview that U.S. Muslims should “go
back to where they came from” if they objected to his recent call for
the removal of all Muslims serving in the military.

Council on American-Islamic Relations
called on GOP to repudiate
The days of the smoke filled room backstage at the
national convention are long gone. The real nominating process
belongs to the party membership, not to the hierarchy. Condemning
stands taken by candidates is not the role of the RNC or the state
CAIR is engaging in intimidation tactics, trying to
cast terror into the hearts of nervous Nellie political consultants who
conceive of political correctness as holy writ. The RNC, Santorum
and the rational candidates should denounce CAIR’s political terror
tactics and tell CAIR to sit down, shut up and mind their own business.
I swear that, if the Republican Party surrenders to
CAIR’s outrageous demand, lifting Allah’s tail and inserting their
tongues, I will not vote for any Republican candidate who does not
explicitly condemn Islam.
profiling of American Muslims
That is a prime example of misdirection.
Attention of security personnel should be focused on Muslims, regardless of
While 9/11 was perpetrated by foreigners, many of the recent plots
involved American citizens. When you hear hoof beats, do you look
for unicorns or horses?
just to be precise
Precise questioning is a good thing, particularly in
court rooms, but in this case, what appears
on the surface, to be precision
is entrapment. A genuine precision question would not include
“precise” in its rhetoric. I have no doubt that Blitzer was
setting Santorum up for this.
ethnic || religious: who would be profiled
That question misdirects attention away from the
real issue. Terrorism is an intrinsic function of Islam, not
primarily linked to nationality or race. Most recent mass
casualty terror attacks have been perpetrated by Muslims.
Islam is neither a race nor a religion; it is a way
of life which dictates every facet of human life, spiritual &
temporal. Islam has inseverable & interdependent religious,
economic and military components. All of those components involve jihad. Jihad is the preferred alternative to trade &
Little old Catholic ladies and Baptist babies do not
commit terror attacks, young Muslim men do. That should be a clue for
you. Rep. Paul cites Timothy McVeigh, the exception which proves
the rule. How many nitrate bombs have been planned or planted by
lapsed Catholics? Compare that to the number of improvised
explosive devices planned or planted by Muslims.
Muslims come in all colors. Eliminate
Islam and Islamic terrorism will be eliminated. If you want
travel to be safe, exclude Muslims from mass transit facilities and
vehicles. That would impede but not stop the Times Square
Bomber. To stop the multitude of alternative attack methods and
venues, it is necessary to remove and exclude those persons most likely
to engage in terrorism: Muslims.
most likely to be committing: Muslims
Why would Santorum say that? Baptists,
Buddhists & Hindus are not turning up in the news for
bombings every month, Muslims are. Why is that? Who besides Moe
preached and exemplified terrorism to his disciples? “Its Islam,
stupid!” Why did Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his excellent
companions attack us? Get a clue.
It is obvious to Santorum why is it not obvious to
others? Is it not common knowledge that Islamic terrorism is
perpetrated by Muslims? Is it not common knowledge that terror
attacks are an act of worship? Is it not common knowledge that
Allah commanded casting terror into the hearts of enemies? Is it
not common knowledge that disbelievers are the enemies of
Muslims? Those facts are objectively true, why are they not
common knowledge? The answers are political correctness and
constitutional right to equal protection
Equal protection of the laws means no class
distinctions; nobody is punished or immunized based on his social or
economic status. Equal protection means that Baptists,
Catholics & atheists are all protected from Islamic terror attacks
by excluding terrorists from places where innocent people
Applying extra scrutiny to those persons most likely
to engage in terror attacks does not deny equal protection of the laws.
It does not impair anyone’s constitutional rights. One bright Tuesday
in September, ’01, several thousand people had their right to life
denied by Muslims who hijacked aircraft. Keeping those Muslims
off of those flights would not have impaired any rights. Keeping
them out of this nation would not have impaired anyone’s rights.
appreciation for the Constitution
The Constitution provides protection for the right
to life and the right to free speech. It is CAIR, not Santorum who
lacks appreciation for those rights. CAIR demands censorship of all
criticism of Islam. CAIR applies intimidation tactics to close
private venues to those who speak out against it. CAIR seeks to
deny effective protection from terror attacks. This is a prime
example of hypocrisy & projection.
law enforcement experts
Appeal to authority is a logical fallacy.
Terrorism is a military issue, not a law enforcement issue. Had
all Muslims been excluded from all domestic flights as they should be,
the Accursed Abomination would have been impossible; 3000 people would
be alive and healthy. Why has Israel not lost any aircraft
recently? How did they stop hijackings and prevent flying
bombs? If you want to stop air based terrorism, consult Israel’s
lead our multi-faith nation
How do the leadership requirements vary between
monocultural and multicultural nations? What difference does it
make to the Presidency whether we have no, 1, 2 or any number of
The President can not lead Muslims. Muslims are
commanded not to place themselves in positions subordinate to kuffar.
Take a close look at Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:51 Surah At-Taubah 9:33. Shari’ah declares
non-Arabs to be unsuitable marriage partners for Muslimas “because “Allah has chosen the Arabs above others“.
Get a clue.
security specialists reject racial profiling
Is Islam a race? Allah has enslaved people of all
races, so what race is Islam? Did race play a role in the acts of
the “shoe bomber” & “underwear bomber”? They are different racially
but both are Muslim. Get a clue.
What Shrub said is not relevant; he is out of office
and ineligible to run again. Being a fool who said “Islam is a great religion of peace“,
he has no probative authority. Exactly what is wrong with
scrutinizing Muslims in the airport lines? Exactly what is wrong
with determining the religious affiliation of persons with Arab &
Asiatic appearance in airport lines?
Four of our aircraft were hijacked and deliberately
crashed in ’01; how many Israeli aircraft were hijacked in that
year? Exactly what is counter productive about profiling?
If a white man robs a bank do you draw black men into a dragnet?
Get a clue.
Prophet Jesus … would fit his ‘profile
of that blasphemy is outrageous! Jesus Christ is not a prophet of
Islam. Which of his teachings do Muslims teach in the mosques and
practice? Jesus Christ did not reveal the obligation of offensive
conquest. Jesus Christ did not reveal the need to exterminate Jews. Jesus Christ
neither sanctified nor exemplified terrorism. Jesus Christ is not a genocidal warlord.
Jesus was born to a descendant of King David; His
heritage is Jewish, not Arab. Jesus Christ taught Judaism in the Jewish
Temple, not Islam in a mosque. The place of his birth is Israel, not
reject Islamophobic rhetoric
There is nothing phobic about loathing of Islam
which is well founded in objective factual reality. Islam is perpetual war. Muslims, motivated
by Allah’s threat & promise,
perpetrated the Hindu, Armenian & Assyrian genocides. Those who
perpetrated recent atrocities in New York, London & Beslan
shouted “Allahu Akbar”, not “Jesus is Lord”. Get a clue.
I swear that I will not vote for any candidate who
lifts Allah’s tail and inserts his tongue by accepting CAIR’s
profiling is unconstitutional
Prove it. Show us the constitutional provision which
explicitly forbids it.
diverts precious law enforcement resources
Resources are wasted by searching, scanning and
harassing kuffar children and their grandmothers. Resources are wasted
by random searches. Resources are wasted by not excluding Muslims from
mass transit so that the whole TSA program could be scrapped.
linked to terrorist activity
cast terror.”. “Allah
cast terror…“. “…That is because they suffer neither thirst nor
fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise
the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but
is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness….”. “I have been made victorious with terror“.
“…Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest?
Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except
disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they
shall be consigned to the most grievous torment….” Islam is terrorist
activity; Muslims are linked to it by Allah’s yoke of slavery.
Santorum called “Sharia,” or Islamic principles, “evil”
Santorum spoke the truth. Examine the evidence;
see for yourself. Shari’ah imposes cruel & unusual
punishment. Shari’ah mandates annual military attacks against
disbelievers. Shari’ah declares that the caliph makes war upon Jews,
Christians and Zoroastrians. Shari’ah denies religious freedom,
equality and dignity.
