CAIR Joins Occupy Wall Street

This article speaks for itself:

CAIR Joins Occupy Wall Street, Will Hold Friday Prayers In Zuccotti Park

They say one can tell a lot about people by the company they keep. If that adage is true, what does the Council for American Islamic Affair’s (CAIR) endorsement of Occupy Wall Street — and the organization’s choice to conduct Friday “Jummah” prayers in Zuccotti Park — tell us about both CAIR, and, the Occupy protesters?

That's a question worth pondering.

An official invitation issued by CAIR’s New York chapter tells members to show “solidarity” with “the 99%” by attending Friday prayers in Zuccotti Park at 1:00pm. CAIR’s stated goal in hosting the prayer service at OWS is to “expand the role of New York Muslims in the Occupy movement.”

From CAIR:

Dear friends,CAIR-NY is proud to support and invite you to Friday Prayer at Occupy Wall Street this Friday, October 21st, where we will join in solidarity with “the 99%.” Jummah, hosted by Majlis Ash-Shura (Islamic Leadership Council of New York) is scheduled for 1pm at Zuccotti Park. A sermon on social justice in Islam will be delivered by Imam Aiyub Abdul Baki.

This is yet another "interesting" development in the current protest movement. We're already seen various Nazi groups and Communist groups involved and now CAIR.

As the article states, "one can tell a lot about people by the company they keep".

Stephen, what is MCD an acronym for?

I bristle every time I see reference to the 99% as its a reference to the non-Jewish in America. That CAIR on one hand, claims to be against hate . . .but sees itself as part of the 99%, is in itself, hate.

The Muslim Brotherhood has ties with the CAIR protestors.
Meanwhile, only one Jewish congressman--Joe Lieberman-- has spoken against the anti-Semitic rhetoric among the protestors.

Christmas is near as the fruitcakes are here.
