Saudi funded front group for Hamas demands Muslim speaker be hosted at LA Temple – offers Jews free Korans
Khalifornia 1924- The head of the Council of anti American Islamist radicals in Southern Khalifornia, has demanded that The Temple of the Arts in Los Angeles invite a Muslim speaker .
CAIR LA spokesman Hussam A. Louse said his group objected that to the Temple's inviting the director of the Jihad Watch website to speak. A. Louse whined, "Being named as a defendant in a 9/11 terrorism lawsuit, is no reason to say mean things about Islam like "…Islam strips its followers of all aspects of their identity and in short converts them into killer-Zombies."
A. Louse stated that ‘Islam does not strip followers of all aspects of their identity, on the contrary, it gives them them religion and then turns them into killer zombies' and added that,athough our group has several of it's members jailed on terrorism charges CAIR objects to the posting which said: * "Islam, the preferred religion of criminals." "It should be made clear to readers that Islam was only the preferred religion of Muslim criminals. proclaimed A. Louse.
CAIR also objects to a comment posted on the Jihad Watch website that which said :
"[I]t should not be hard to find ways to limit the spread or practice of Islam."
Hussam A. Louse said " This was a claim and which could harm potential Mulims and we call upon Jews to reject this anti Islam bias and immediately invite radical speakers to show solidarity with Muslims.
"We would be glad to suggest the names of credible Muslim scholars who can offer Temple Shalom's congregation a perspective on Islam that is not tainted by hatred and bigotry,and to give every member of Temple Shalom a complimentary copy of the Quran, Islam's revealed text, so they may learn more about what Muslims really believe."
Hussam A. Louse called called upon the Temple's congregants to recite the Shadada when they get their Korans and convert to Islam to prove that their choice of speaker was not meant to upset Muslim sensitivities.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CA SYNAGOGUE THAT HOSTED ISLAMOPHOBE URGED TO INVITE MUSLIM SPEAKER Hate-filled comments on speaker's website compare Muslims to animals and Nazis
(ANAHEIM, CA, 11/8/2005) - The Southern California office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) today urged a Los Angeles synagogue that recently hosted the operator of a virulently anti-Muslim website to invite a Muslim representative who can offer a balancing perspective on Islam.
CAIR-LA has learned that Robert Spencer, who operates the "Jihad Watch" Internet hate site, spoke at Temple Shalom for the Arts during a Yom Kippur event. Spencer's website is notorious for its depiction of Islam as an inherently violent faith that is a threat to world peace.
Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald recently wrote on that site:
"To be sure, plenty of Believers in exotic creeds alien or new to the West have managed to fit in perfectly well, and be friendly neighbors and loyal citizens. . .Only one group, only one belief-system, distinguishes itself by appearing incapable of fitting in. And that is Muslims, and Islam. . . if one really knew what Islam contained . . .then how could any decent person remain a Muslim?"
He went on to recommend that western nations be "Islam-proofed the way a house is child-proofed," compared Muslims to Nazis and urged that they be boycotted: "[I]t should not be hard to find ways to limit the spread or practice of Islam. And if in addition to whatever local, state and federal government officials do, private parties simply conduct their own boycott of goods and services offered by Muslims, in the same way that they would have refused to buy, in 1938, a German Voigtlander camera. . ."
Comments posted on the site are bone-chilling in the raw hatred they espouse. For example, one poster described Muslims as being like animals, writing: "If they want students to learn about Islamic culture, what's wrong with a simple field trip to the city zoo?"
Other anti-Muslim comments on the Jihad Watch website include:
* "Islam strips its followers of all aspects of their identity and in short converts them into killer-Zombies." * "Islam, the preferred religion of criminals." * "If Mohammad were alive today and spouting his 'new' message from God in today's media he would be identified and branded as the lunatic that he was and be jailed or hospitalized."
"We would be glad to suggest the names of credible Muslim scholars who can offer Temple Shalom's congregation a perspective on Islam that is not tainted by hatred and bigotry," said CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush.
Ayloush also offered to give every member of Temple Shalom a complimentary copy of the Quran, Islam's revealed text, so they may learn more about what Muslims really believe. (A free copy of the Quran may be ordered or sponsored at: www.explorethequran.org )
He also called on Jewish leaders in California, many of whom are close friends and partners with the Muslim community, to publicly repudiate those who promote anti-Muslim hatred.
