More CAIRing

US Muslim organization CAIR are fuming after Jewish comedian Jackie Mason called “the whole Muslim religion” a “murderous organization” that teaches “hate, terrorism and murder.”

CAIR’s denunciation of Mason’s comments appear on their website as part of the Hate Hurts America Campaign. Here is more on this campaign:

Earlier this year, CAIR announced a campaign “to counter anti-Islamic hate on talk radio,” called Hate Hurts America.”

CAIR says its campaign is “based on the premise that the increasing attacks on Islam by talk-show hosts harm the United States by creating a downward spiral of interfaith mistrust and hostility.”

Meanwhile, CAIR’s idea of promoting interfaith trust and tolerance is by sponsoring a Jewish anti-Zionist group that calls for Israel’s destruction.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, announced that “in an effort to foster better cooperation between Muslims and Jews,” its Southern California chapter, along with several California mosques and branches of the Muslim Student Association, is sponsoring a speaking tour by “the renowned Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, director of Neturei Karta.”

CAIR says its association with Weissí group will improve interfaith dialogue and “focus on ways for Muslims and Jews to cooperate, in order to challenge racism, injustice and those who attempt to divide us along religious lines.”

The Neturei Karta have spoken publicly at anti-Israel rallies and parades under the banners of Hezbollah and Hamas. During its most recent tour, the group appeared at several colleges and universities, including the University of California at Irvine campus, where it reiterated its support for suicide bombings and suggested that Palestinian terrorism is the moral equivalent of Israelís efforts to protect its citizens.

After Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the founder and spiritual leader of Hamas, was killed in an Israeli military assassination, Weiss memorialized Yassin at a New York ceremony. His group also annually protests the Israel Day Parade in New York.

Yasser Arafat has pledged numerous times to appoint to his cabinet a member of Neturei Karta to supervise Jewish affairs if the Palestinians get a state.

Regarding the recent Hague ruling that Israel’s security fence, which has been credited with keeping suicide bombers out, must be dismantled, Weiss said, “We pass no opinion on the legality or otherwise of ëthe wall.’ We do however pass an opinion of absolute illegality on the Zionist state known as ëIsrael.í”
