Hamas-linked CAIR thumps its chest after succeeding in restricting free speech at the ALA
by Robert Spencer
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has succeeded in silencing speech about Islam that it does not want you to hear. CAIR's press release about this incident is entitled: "Good News: Islam-Basher Will Not Speak At Library Association Conference: CAIR to work with the ALA to schedule a future event on the same topic as the canceled panel discussion."
With whom will the American Library Association be working on this? CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case. Its operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several of its former officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. Several of its other officials have made Islamic supremacist statements. CAIR also was involved in the Flying Imams' intimidation suit against the passengers who reported their suspicious behavior.
Nice working partner you got there, ALA!
