Honoring CAIR in Tampa

For the fourth consecutive year, Pam Iorio, Mayor of Tampa Bay, Florida, will issue a proclamation honoring the radical Muslim organization Council on American Islamic Reltions,CAIR, proclaiming a day in its honor. This city has had a problem with Radical Islamism for many years, and it was the home base of Sami Al-Arian and his Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Two Muslim students, residents of the Tampa area, have been arrested for possession of explosives and creating a video explaining how to detonate explosives. The website of the Muslim American Society-MASTampa, has had postings promoting hatred and jihad. All these associations are interconnected with CAIR.

CAIR is not Islam, and honoring this organization is not honoring Islam or the Islamic community, unless this community agrees with the philosophy espoused by CAIR. Either way, the sooner the proclamation is rescinded, the better.
