The Council on American–Islamic Relations Forces Its Way Into a Tulsa Veterans Day Parade

The Council on American–Islamic Relations is a group of bad guys. CAIR is tied to terrorism in general and HAMAS in particular, the FBI cut ties with CAIR because of its terrorist ties and the group flacks relentlessly for radical Islamists. Their typical tactic is to claim that they’re moderates, but then to attack anybody who slams radical Islamists as Islamophobic.

CAIR’s latest sleazy tactic is to pick on Veterans holding a parade. Either it gets to buff up its sleazy reputation marching in the Tulsa, Oklahoma Veteran’s Day Parade where few people want it or it sues the people putting on the parade. It’s a  no-win situation for the vets running the parade.

The Veterans Day parade in Tulsa is one of the largest in the country each year, but this year one float in particular is getting a lot of attention.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, applied for and was granted a spot in the 2015 parade.

That doesn’t sit well with some people, including Tulsan Larry Williamson.

“The organization is anti-American,” Williamson tells KRMG. “It’s part of the Muslim Brotherhood, at least it’s a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee. This is not according to me, it’s according to the FBI.”

He said he doesn’t object to individual Muslims marching in the parade, or even other organizations like the Peace Academy, an Islamic private school based in Tulsa.

“But this particular group, they are anti-American, they are enemies of America in a current war. Americans are fighting and dying to defend against the Jihad. These people are here raising money for Hamas,” Williamson said.

…The national CAIR organization was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a 2001-11 investigation into a group called the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.

Several members of that group were eventually convicted; one of them was also a founding member of CAIR.

…Williamson tells KRMG he’s convinced the group does support Hamas, and said he will not participate in this year’s Veterans Day parade.

It’s disgraceful that you have people who want to support vets put in a position where they don’t even want to participate in a Veteran’s Day Parade because they’re stuck marching beside a group the FBI won’t work with because of its terrorist ties.
