CAIR Comes Out Against Ball's 9/11 Hearing

6a00d8345159b169e201157135bdb8970c 200wi CAIR Comes Out Against Ball's 9/11 HearingThe Council on American-Islamic Relations has announced that they are planning a protest tomorrow in advance of State Senator Greg Ball’s hearing on  “New York’s Public Protection Ten Years After September 11.”

The hearing has attracted some controversy due to the presence of Nonie Darwish, a human rights activist and writer who has said that Islam is “cruel, anti-women, anti-religious freedom and anti-personal freedom in general” and for including as a topic  “The Culture of Jihad and Shariah Law.”

The planned rally will be on the steps of City Hall.

CAIR came out strongly against Rep. Peter King’s congressional hearings on Muslim radicalization, but King brushed aside their attacks by frequently calling them an “unindicted co-conspirators” in a terrorist attack.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
