According to the Council On American Islamic Relations: “We Are Above The Law Of The Land” – A Call To Action
Personally, I am concerned CAIR’s hateful supremacist rhetoric could lead to possible bias incidents inciting “practicing Muslims” to act in a lawless manner against non-Muslims, as is the situation elswhere.
Above The Law Of The Land
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth branch of the Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Mustafa Carroll’s incendiary quote was meant to incite lawless action from his target audience of “practicing Muslims.”
We urge Americans to speak out against this latest form of irrational anti-Americanism, hate mongering, incitement, and for CAIR to publicly reaffirm respect for the law of the land and tolerance for all.
This article will show how CAIR Dallas-Fort Worth executive director Mustafa Carroll’s quote is subversive and in violation of their coveted 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax exempt status and is illegal under United States Code. CAIR has shown a pattern of similar statements from Omar Ahmad and Ibrahim Hooper advocating for Rebellion or Insurrection under United States Code.
Mustafa Carroll is 100% Right
Mr. Carroll made his subversive “…we are above the law of the land” call to action at the Texas Muslim Capitol Day on January 31, 2013. According to Islamic doctrine and theology Mustafa Carroll is 100 percent in accordance with Islamic Law. Islamic Law teaches the Qur’an is the exact word of Allah down to the last letter and supersedes all man made laws including our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Mr. Carroll should be applauded for his honesty and then harshly punished for his subversive speech against the United States of America.
Mustafa Carroll is the Executive Director of a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) Civil Rights Organization so his words spoken in public carry considerable weight, especially when spoken on the steps of Texas State Capitol where man made laws are written and enacted.
Accurate Image of Islam in America
CAIR-TX, DFW Chapter website says it, “is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-deductible grassroots advocacy and civil right organization. CAIR was established to promote a accurate image of Islam and Muslims in America. We believe that misrepresentations of Islam today are most often the result of ignorance on the part of non-Muslims and reluctance on the part of Muslims to clearly articulate our beliefs…we strive to maintain the highest ethical standards in all of our endeavors. In our work towards portraying an accurate image of Islam in America…”
John Griffing wrote a good article documenting the serial lawlessness and arrests of CAIR principles over the years plus a live uncut video of Mustafa Carroll and others on the steps of Texas State Capitol.
I believe Mustafa Carroll chose his words carefully and articulated his view of an “accurate image of Islam in America”, when he stated, “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.” Mr. Carroll believes he is above the law and better than everyone else.
Omar Ahmad & Ibrahim Hooper Are Above The Law Too
Mustafa Carroll’s subversive quote mirrors CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad when he was quoted by Lisa Gardiner saying, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant, he said. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Mustafa Carroll’s subversive quote also mirrors CAIR National spokesman Ibrahim Hooper, who indicated in a 1993 interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune he wants to see the U.S. become a Muslim country. Ibrahim Hooper said, “ I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper told the paper. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
The public admissions above from CAIR’s leadership confirms Mustafa Carroll, Omar Ahmad, and Ibrahim Hooper are “portraying an accurate image of Islam in America” as per the CAIR mission statement. Why else then would all three men have made such eerily similar supremacist political statements at different times and places.
In law enforcement circles they call three similar statements from three different individuals in the same organization, a clue, they are telling the truth about their intentions of being above or replacing our Rule of Law.
Red Flags – CAIR’s Long Train Of Abuses
When any group or individual states or implies publicly they are above the law red flags immediately pop up because we are a nation of man made laws.
CAIR has a long train of abuses not following our man made laws and it is ponderous how they are still allowed to operate. CAIR temporarily lost their 501c3 status, have been charged with violating the civil rights of their Muslim clients, have been labeled as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation and Development terrorist Funding trial, have had several leaders arrested on terrorism charges, and the FBI severed ties with CAIR in 2008 for their ties to supporting terrorists.
When CAIR displays such a pattern of lawlessness from Mustafa Carroll, Ibrahim Hooper, and Omar Ahmad, this above the law mentality would appear to be systemic throughout the organization and our man made laws have a word for that.
Rebellion or Insurrection
United States Code, Title 18, Part 1 Chapter 115, section 2383 states, “Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
Call To Action
We demand the FBI open an investigation into Mustafa Carroll’s violation of United States Code and press charges immediately against Mr. Carroll for attempting to incite all practicing Muslims to rebel against the laws of these United States of America.
The United West calls for the removal of Mustafa Carroll, Executive Director of CAIR Dallas-Ft. Worth chapter for publicly inciting all “practicing Muslims” to believe “they are above the law of the land” and not subject to the same laws everyone else must follow. Mr. Carroll and CAIR are clearly out of touch with mainstream American values, the rule of law, United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
CAIR and Mustafa Carroll’s activities on the steps of the Texas State Capital are also incompatible with charity and social welfare. Rev. Rul. 75-384 [Revenue Rulings], putting their 501(c)(3) status in jeopardy.
Adding insult to injury is Mustafa Carroll’s CAIR Annual Banquet Dinner on April 20, 2013, titled “Upholding our Constitution” CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad will be speaking at the dinner, when he should be removing Mustafa Carroll from his Executive Director post and apologizing to the American people.
Mustafa Carroll, Ibrahim Hooper, Omar Ahmad, and Nihad Awad are individuals who hold a closed-minded view of America by promoting prejudice against or hatred of non-Muslims who believe our man made laws are the supreme law of the land (Article 6 U.S. Constitution).
America is a nation of laws, not of men or women. In America, no one is above the law and no one is below it.
President Barack Hussein Obama said, “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstone of this presidency.” President Obama can prove he was telling the truth by instructing the DOJ and FBI to open an investigation into this matter, showing the American people that CAIR and Mustafa Carroll are not above the law of the land. |On March 29, 2013
