The Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR says “Islamophobia is close-minded prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims” and “[a]n Islamophobe is an individual who holds a closed-minded view of Islam and promotes prejudice against or hatred of Muslims.”
CAIR has declared Tennessee to be one of the most Islamophobic states in the U.S.
Founder and former director of the Tennessee American Center for Outreach (ACO), Remziya Suleyman, for years, repeatedly singled out Tennessee and blamed specific Tennessee organizations and specific individuals for bringing Islamophobia to the state.
Paul “Iesa” Galloway who was a Texas CAIR Director from 2002 to 2006, now runs the ACO and has taken over Suleyman’s job of identifying Islamophobia in Tennessee.
Nihad Awad who publicly voices his support for HAMAS, is also the head of Galloway’s former organization, CAIR. Awad has been a regular visitor to Tennessee and CAIR has regularly inserted itself into Tennessee’s political activities. CAIR liberally uses accusations of Islamophobia to single out targets.
Galloway now lives in Nashville, runs the ACO Muslim advocacy organization and is a registered lobbyist talking directly to Tennessee’s state legislators. Until recently the ACO was a named local partner organization to Daoud Abudiab’s Faith and Culture Center. The listing has been changed to ““Local Muslim organizations and centers.”
Islamist activist Daoud Abudiab’s Faith and Culture Center had planned to hold an Islamophobia conference on September 26, 2015 but renamed it after the jihadi murder in Chattannooga. Pushing the idea that the Chattaooga jihadist’s actions had nothing to do with Muslims or Islam they renamed the event to “Our Muslim Neighbor: Creating a Community of Inclusion in Middle Tennessee.”
Daoud Abudiab, former co-chair of Tennessee’s American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC), now serves as board president of the far left TIRRC (TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition), a pro-amnesty and open borders organization which supports the lawlessness of illegal immigration calling it “family reunification.” TIRRC received $310,000 of Soros money in 2012 and $469,000 in 2013. Can there be any question about what their REAL agenda is.
Abudiab is a supporter of the open borders group Clergy for Tolerance. He also spearheads “Our Muslim Neighbor” (OMN) initiative which is the sole focus of his Faith and Culture Center. Read “The Dark Side of the Interfaith Syndicate: ‘Our Muslim Neighbor,’ CAIR.”
CAIR and the Tennessee Islamist bullies use name-calling like “Islamophobe” to silence and threaten or provoke action against any criticism of Islam or political sharia. CAIR has been prolific in assembling reports and a website labelling individuals, organizations and actions they call the “Islamophobia Network.”
SoundVision, a department of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), instructs that Islamophobia includes acts like, “…depicting the Prophet as a terrorist, disrespecting the Quran, torturing prisoners, bombing civilians or occupying Muslim lands, these are all signs of Islamophobia” and it includes “any kind of hate crime or speech against Islam and Muslims.”
The Islamic State just released its 9th issue of its English magazine called “Dabiq” with an introduction promoting the shooting in Garland Texas as “inspiration” for Muslims living in the “lands of the crusaders.”
CAIR and Tennessee’s Islamist bullies like Abudiab, Galloway and Suleyman are now on notice that Islamic State (IS) sympathizers are encouraged and will be incited to respond to accusations of Islamophobia, with deadly violence. So why are Islamist agitators like CAIR, Suleyman, Galloway and Abudiab knowingly, willfully and recklessly continuing to mark the targets?
Are Islamophobia accusers willing to intimidate people into silence by whatever means? Can they justify the violence used by IS to silence critics of political Islam in Tennessee, once and forever?
After the jihad terrorist murders in Chattanooga, why would Tennessee’s Department of Homeland Security enable the deliberate inciting to violence?
