CAIR TO TRUMP: DROP FRANKLIN GRAHAM FROM INAUGURAL PRAYERS

Charges 'ill-informed and extremist views are incompatible with the Constitution'

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim-rights group designated by the Justice Department as a terrorist co-conspirator, is calling on Donald Trump to drop Rev. Franklin Graham as one of six clergy who will offer prayers at the Jan. 20 inauguration ceremony.

In a press release issued this week, CAIR referred to the son of evangelist Billy Graham as a “notorious Islamophobe”

“If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not to create divisions between faiths,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Rev. Graham’s ill-informed and extremist views are incompatible with the Constitution and with American values of religious liberty and inclusion.”

Awad was linked to the Holy Land Foundation terror-funding case by wiretaps showing him present at a 1993 Philadelphia meeting of Hamas leaders and activists where participants hatched a plot to disguise payments to Hamas terrorists as $12 million in charitable giving. Five of the plotters were given substantial prison sentences and, as WND reported, a new Internet campaign is urging President Obama to provide clemency to the jailed leaders of the foundation before he leaves office.

This is not the first time CAIR has attempted to have Graham banned from official Washington functions. In 2010 the group celebrated its success at having Graham dropped from The National Day of Prayer at the Pentagon.

CAIR’s Awad said his organization hailed the decision “as a victory for common sense and good judgment.”

“Promoting one’s own religious beliefs is something to be defended and encouraged, but other faiths should not be attacked or misrepresented in the process,” Awad said.

Graham has been outspoken in his criticism of Islam, saying Muslims are “enslaved by Islam” and characterizing it as a “very evil and wicked religion.” Following the attack by two Muslims that left more than a 14 dead and 22 seriously injured in San Bernardino, Graham warned, “Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized – and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad.”

CAIR’s demand is unlikely to carry any weight with the Trump transition team. The president-elect, during his thank-you event last month in Mobile, Alabama, praised Graham and credited him for contributing to his victory.

“I want to thank so many great people, but having Franklin Graham, who was so instrumental, we won so big, with evangelical Christians, we won so big,” Trump told the crowd of 20,000.

Graham has previously prayed at the 2001 inauguration of George W. Bush and his father has prayed at the same event for other presidents, from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton. That both Grahams have always concluded their prayers in the name of Jesus Christ — and Franklin Graham certainly will again — can only add to CAIR’s displeasure.

Ironically, CAIR’s broadside against Graham came at the same time his charitable organization, Samaritan’s Purse, was dedicating a 50-bed field hospital the group built in Mosul, Iraq.

The trauma unit constructed on the Plains of Ninevah is meant to treat the injured in the fighting being conducted by government and coalition forces against ISIS, reported the Washington Times.

“It’s a privilege to be here,” Graham said during the dedication ceremony. “As a Christian, I want all people to know about God’s love for them.”

Samaritan’s Purse was praised by Lise Grande, U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, who noted the difficulty in finding NGOs willing to provide frontline trauma care.

“We’ve reached out to a number of organizations, asking, begging them to step forward,” she said. “Dr. Graham, Samaritan’s Purse answered that call. We can’t thank you enough.

“You built this hospital in record time. Most of all we want to thank you for saving people. Because Samaritan’s Purse is here, thousands — tens of thousands — of people will survive…”

CAIR is unlikely to be moved by Graham’s clearly un-Islamophobic charitable work in Iraq. Graham’s 2003 announcement of his group’s planned relief efforts in Iraq drew similar scorn from the U.S. Muslim group.

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for CAIR, charged that evangelical groups use humanitarian concerns as a cover for their true motive – to convert Muslims to Christianity.

“They go after them when they’re most vulnerable and hope they can get them to leave their faith,” he told Beliefnet at the time. “It’s a very despicable practice.”

Hooper said Graham’s effort could undermine President Bush’s attempt to convince the Muslim world that the war was not against Islam.

“If it becomes generally known, it’s going to be a public relations disaster for the Bush administration,” he Hooper, who has said he wants the U.S. eventually to become a Muslim nation.

“Franklin Graham obviously thinks it is a war against Islam.”

Rev. Graham's views are in compliance with OUR Constitution and with OUR views of American Values of Religious Liberty. . . muslim and islamic  views about OUR Constitution and OUR Religious Liberties are OUR Views . . . You CAIR are the infidel here in OUR country NOT by OUR invention by YOUR muslim brother B H Obama  

Message to CAIR: Wake up!! Your muslim b%^ch boy is out of the White House, Ok? Get used to it. Your moronic Democrats are out of power nearly everywhere and their bureaucratic deep state is about to be defunded and trampled, OK? S%^t happens!

Actually this guy is the head of nothing because when you get right down to facts Islam is not a Relegion but a way of life.  He is right to be concerned about Franklin Graham because he prays to the Creator the one who actually answers prayers.  He's probably upset also because in my and many others believe there was divine intervention in Trump winning the election.  When people were asked to pray latter in the afternoon and people were getting home from work and started praying the results begin to change.  This guy does not represent an organization that has fought and was a part of establishing this country or our constatution.  That is only a Fake News that Obama started.  

Islime is a disease that will destroy the world if it is not destroyed first. No exceptions.

Franklin Graham is a good man...as was his father. He gets exactly what the Muslims are all about. Sure CAIR doesn't like him....it's people like Franklin Graham who has had the courage to stand up and tell the world what Islam intends. Thank God for Franklin Graham and Donald Trump.

Every Imam and Cleric has looked right into our cameras and said their mandate was to "subjugate the entire World". Why...why...why can't our politicians get this? Until Trump arrived on the scene Walid Phares, Walid Shoebat and Brigette Gabriell were the only Middle Eastern converts to Christianity that tried to sound the alarm. So far their efforts have fell on deaf ears. Their efforts now have been joined by Trump and Graham.

CAIR has no voice in this nation and why are we letting them have one... or is it the DEPLORABLE MEDIA doing it?

It is the deplorable MSM that is giving voice to CAIR and as such... aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States... quite possibly TREASON.  I would advise the MSM to pay particular attention to who they are supporting as once Trump is in office... Treason will not be tolerated.

Eliminate cair and anyone that supports this evil group.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Rep. Mark Walker   RepMarkWalker

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592 

Noah Feldman @NoahRFeldman

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
