The founder of a group that has voiced concern about the growing influence of radical Islam within the U.S. asked Oklahoma's governor on Friday to sign a bill that would prohibit foreign laws from being enforced in state courtrooms.CAIR is predictably opposed to this, and Gaffney reminds that:
“It is not to say that all Muslims are a threat,” said Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy. “It is the case, however, that those who embrace and submit to Sharia and insist on, according to its doctrine, making the rest of us submit to it, are a danger.”
Gaffney said the Council on American-Islamic Relations is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known for engaging in political violence and was responsible for creating Hamas, which the U.S. has designated a terrorist organization. He said the council was founded as a political fundraiser and to do political warfare for Hamas in 1993. Gaffney also said the council has roots in the Islamic Association of Palestine. Gaffney said his information came from a memorandum dealing with the council, which was an unindicted co-conspirator in a 2004 Hamas funding case filed in federal court in Dallas.I hope the OK governor will understand these concerns and finally sign into law a bill that America is seriously in need of.
“Anyone who considers the Council on Islamic Relations what it professes to be — just a civil rights organization speaking for the Muslims of the United States and not as a Muslim Brotherhood front engaged in influence operations and, frankly, subversion in our country — is grossly mistaken, and is, I'm afraid, unwittingly perhaps, but nonetheless aiding and abetting those engaged in what the Muslim Brotherhood itself calls civilization jihad against the United States,” Gaffney said.
