CAIR calls on GOP women’s group to stop promoting anti-Muslim speakers

PRESS RELEASE – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on American Muslims and all those concerned about the proliferation of Islamophobia and other forms of bigotry in our society to contact the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) to ask the group to end its support of anti-Muslim organizations and speakers. NFRW claims to be “one of the largest and most influential women’s political organizations in the country.”

CAIR’s request comes in the wake of a letter it sent to NFRW leaders asking them to institute internal reforms to end the promotion of bigotry and following an announcement that the Lake Federated Republican Women’s Club in Leesburg, Fla. — an NFRW affiliate — will host Islamophobe Jonathan Matusitz at an event on Wednesday.

In a video released recently by CAIR-FL, Matusitz says:

  • Coexistence with Islam is not possible
  • My colleagues say Islam is a religion of peace. I say it’s a religion of pieces — piece of body here, piece of body there
  • When I see those ‘coexist’ bumper stickers on cars, I laugh because I think it’s ridiculous
  • Anybody with a fraction of a brain should be afraid of Islam because it’s a dangerous doctrine

It continues here.

The “Islamophobe” sounds perfectly rational to me.
