CAIR Defends Barbaric ISIS, Claims Calling Them “Islamic Savages” Is “Hate Rhetoric”

Well, they are “Islamic” and they are “savages.” So, the term seems to fit. I see nothing hateful about it. What I do see that is hateful is the way ISIS is killing people and that is definitely savage and barbaric. I commend Melendez for coming out and stating the truth regardless of the heat she is receiving from CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. American Kayla Mueller was given as a wife to an ISIS overlord and then Lord knows what he did to her. I suspect she was dead long before her parents got notice. ISIS isn’t known for telling the truth to infidels. I don’t see CAIR calling ISIS out for their savagery… quite the opposite. Their silence and misdirection on it speaks volumes.

Take note: These are not Islamic savages.

From City News Service:

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, was under fire Friday from a Los Angeles-based Muslim advocacy group that called her use of the phrase “Islamic savages” in a tweet “hate rhetoric.”

“Statements like these cause mistrust and fear of Islam and Muslims,” said Haroon Manjlai, with the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles, or CAIR-LA. “It is unbecoming of a public elected official to issue such bigoted statements.”

On Tuesday, Melendez posted a tweet saying:

“Gut wrenching news today. American Kayla Mueller murdered by Islamic savages. There MUST be consequences. MM.”

She ended the Twitter post with the hashtag #standupagainstIslam.

Mueller, of Prescott, Ariz., was captured by the terror group Islamic State while working on behalf of a Middle East-based relief organization in Syria.

The 26-year-old Mueller apparently was killed last week in a Jordanian air strike against an IS stronghold.

Manjlai criticized Melendez for seeming to associate all Muslims with terrorism.

“Hate rhetoric can and does lead to hate crimes against people,” the CAIR-LA spokesman said. “We call on Assemblymember Melendez to retract and apologize for her anti-Muslim comment and for smearing the faith of more than 1.6 billion people.”

The lawmaker released a statement Thursday insisting she never had any “intention to offend peaceful Muslims.”

“However, I’ve had enough of Islamic extremists and terrorists who oppress women and burn people alive in the modern world,” Melendez said. “This isn’t about hash tags; it’s about America standing up with our allies and putting an end to the barbaric behavior we are witnessing around the world.”

Melendez is a U.S. Navy veteran in her second term as a member of the state Assembly.

Melendez was very clear she wasn’t speaking about peaceful Muslims. She was specifically referring to the butchers who burn people alive, behead and crucify them. Obama is alienating every ally we have instead of standing with them when we are in the beginnings of World War III. You can’t fight, much less defeat, an enemy you cannot or will not name. CAIR can stuff it – they are a mouthpiece for terrorists, plain and simple. If there is any hate mongering going on, it is with CAIR, their terrorist bed mates and other Islamo-fascists.
