I always find it amusing when “civil rights” (read:jihadi apologist) group CAIR swoops in to defend a muslim who has been caught red-handed with explosives, jihadist materials, video footage of important landmarks/nuclear facilities/military installations, etc…, and calls them innocent people who are being profiled. It’s nice to see them shut the f*** up for once and not defend a terrorist. Maybe they are getting scared, due to all their members indicted and in jail, or perhaps it is people like me who don’t buy one single word of their taqiyya.
CAIR’s Mum on Al-Qaeda Guilty Plea
Earlier this month Christopher Paul stood before a federal judge in Columbus, Ohio and pled guilty to receiving training in Al-Qaeda terror camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan, fighting with Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Bosnia, and passing that training on to other Muslims in the US and Europe with the intent to kill Americans at home and abroad as part of a plea deal with federal prosecutors to avoid conviction on even more charges.
Since then, however, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been curiously silent on Paul’s guilty plea, with no press releases, media interviews or angry editorials on the matter for nearly three weeks. And any mention of Christopher Paul and his Columbus Al-Qaeda co-conpirators has been tellingly scrubbed from CAIR’s website.
This is especially curious considering the media full-court press that some CAIR officials engaged in when he was arrested in April 2007. At that time CAIR had no reservations about speaking publicly on the matter, as evidenced by the public protestations of Paul’s innocence by CAIR national vice-chairman, go-to friend of terrorists, and sometime pugilist Ahmad Al-Akhras, who defended his Al-Qaeda associate to the Associated Press:
Ahmad Al-Akhras, vice chair of the Columbus chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, knows Paul and said the charges are out of character.
“From the things I know, he is a loving husband and he has a wife and parents in town,” Al-Akhras said Thursday. “They are a good family together.”
Al-Akhras said he and others in the Muslim community are guarding against a public backlash.
“People start wondering and questioning, what is happening and why now?” he said. “When something like this pops up, it creates some anxiety among the members of the Muslim community. … We hope nothing bad will happen and everything will be clear.”
Two of Christopher Paul’s Ohio Al-Qaeda associates, Iyman Faris and Nuradin Abdi, are already serving prison sentences for their role in the Columbus Al-Qaeda cell (from court documents at least 10 others are known to have been involved, but have not yet been charged). As noted by Andrew Cochran at Counterterrorism Blog, Paul’s admission to his extensive collaboration with international terrorist plots going back to the early 1990s and the statement of facts in the case indicates that he is the earliest known American Al-Qaeda operative.
I like that line about creating anxiety among the muslim community. I know it will get me labeled a racist for saying it, but if they are panicking because they can no longer carry out their jihad unchecked, then GOOD RIDDANCE.
