The Council of Anti American Islamist Radicals
"In the name of the Compassionate and Most Merciful"
Floridistan /PR.News Ire 9/11/1924:CAIR Demands special protection for Muslims in wake of terror plot aimed at "killing all the devils we can"
Perverse Ahmad , The National Board Chairman of CAIR, demanded that law enforcement devote funding and resources to protect mosques after the arrest of Muslims in Miami who were plotting to kill " all the devils we can" in an attack which was to be "bigger then 9/11".
"Muslims are very concerned that they will become victims of this thwarted plot, because infidels could react negatively to being targetted for Jihad by Muslims, and yell things which hurt our feelings", "We demand police step up patrols around mosques and Islamic institutions to protect them against graffittists". Ahmad insisted.
The head of CAIR FL communications Ahmed Bidet, declared that; "It is completely unacceptable that the media write about the suspects using words like 'Islam and terrorist'. Just because the arrested Muslims 'gave their lives to Allah', 'took an oath of allegiance to Al Qaeda', intended to set up an 'Islamic Army to wage Jihad', and were planning 'an attack bigger then 9/11' is no reason to jump to conclusions regarding their motives".
The Council of Anti American Islamist Radicals is calling upon the American public to prevent a backlash against Muslims and show solidarity by going to their nearest mosque and converting to Islam immediately.
CAIR- America's largest uncivilised Islamist libertines group has 32 bases of operation in the U.S. and Canada. Its mission is to enforce an understanding of Islam among infidels, encourage dialouge and conversion,empower American Muslims to wage Jihad, and build coalitions that promote dhimmitude and mutual understanding of the need to implement shar'ia.

MIM: Al 'Jihad' zeera decided to help their Saudi funded colleagues at CAIR by reprinting their press release decrying the use of the term Muslim . Note the unintended irony of the caveat regarding the 'conflict terminology' guidelines.

Media Asked Not to Call Miami Terror Suspects Muslims, They Trained Through the Bible, Worshipped in Temple, Not Mosque
Al-Jazeerah, June 24, 2006
An FBI Informant Poses as Al-Qaeda Operative in a Sting Operation Resulting in Arrest of Seven People in Miami
Al-Jazeerah Editorial Note:
The following news article is unedited. It does not mention the role of the FBI informant in the operation. Was he, for example, only recording what they were saying or he was suggesting to them what to do?
It's noteworthy also that family members said on CNN and other TV networks that the suspects were not Muslims. However, anti-Islamic commentators like Steve Emerson were invited to provide more accusations about Muslims. Even federal prosecutors made the same mistake by telling the media about "the Islamic army" as the AP report claims below.
MEDIA ASKED NOT TO CALL MIAMI TERROR SUSPECTS 'MUSLIMS'
Sect trains 'through the bible,' worships in 'temple,' not mosque
(WASHINGTON, DC, 6/23/06) -
A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today called on media professionals not to refer to seven terror suspects arrested in Miami as "Muslims."
The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said media reports indicate that the suspects are part of a sect called "Seas of
When asked by CNN why group members refer to themselves as "soldiers," "Brother Corey" said: "Because we study and we train through the bible, not only physical -- not only physical, but mentally." Group members also worship in a "temple," not in an Islamic mosque.

(The relevant interview is toward the bottom of the page.)
The group bears some resemblance to the cult of Yahweh ben Yahweh, which operated in the same part of Miami, Liberty City, in the 1980's.
"Given that the reported beliefs of this bizarre group have nothing to do with Islam, we ask members of the media to refrain from calling them 'Muslims,'" said CAIR spokesperson Ahmed Bedier. He thanked U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta for noting that "today's indictment. . .is not against a particular group or a particular faith."
Bedier urged the government to avoid confusing the public by using Arabic terminology in referring to the case. In a briefing today in Miami, government officials did not call the suspects "Muslims," but did refer to allegations of plans for "violent jihad."
At a news conference earlier today in Miami, CAIR called on police departments nationwide to protect mosques and other Islamic institutions from any possible backlash prompted by the mistaken linkage of this case to the American Muslim community.
CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 32 offices, chapters and affiliates nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

MIM: Ahmed Bedier who speaks for an organisation which has had several of their members jailed on terrorism charges (see "CAIR Moderate Friends of Terror ) is certainly convincing when he speaks of the suspects should not be linked to Muslims - even though people connected to the Moorish Science Temple of America, such as Rodney Clement Hampton El have turned to Jihad. Note that the article echoes the Council on Anti American Islamic Radicals on June 23rd above which stated that:
"We demand that police step up patrols around mosques and institutions to protect them from graffitists"
In the June 24thSun Sentinel article below we read :
"...Concerned the case might lead some to paint defaming graffiti, damage mosques or homes, CAIR's legal director in Florida, Areeb Naseer, asked police to be vigilant.."
Don't link terror suspects to us, Muslim leaders say
June 24, 2006\\
Miami ∑ Minutes after U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta announced indictments on Friday against an alleged terror cell, a Muslim leader took to the steps of the city's federal courthouse and said the suspects "were not known" at either of two mosques near the warehouse in the Liberty City neighborhood where authorities arrested them. Ahmed Bedier, of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he and other Muslims feared some would try to connect Islam and the men's alleged plot to blow up a slew of federal buildings and the Sears Tower in Chicago.
"This seems like some kind of cult group that shares nothing with our community," Bedier told reporters of the suspects.
He asked the pressnews media not to refer to the suspects as Muslims. "Muslims don't worship at warehouses," Bedier said. "They don't sleep in warehouses."
Concerned the case might lead some to paint defaming graffiti, damage mosques or homes, CAIR's legal director in Florida, Areeb Naseer, asked police to be vigilant. "We are concerned about a backlash against the Muslim community as a result of these arrests," Naseer said.
Incidents of vandalism against Muslim shops, mosques and community centers increased after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., which also prompted authorities to search Arab-Americans at airport security checkpoints, community leaders said.
Law enforcement officials sought to preempt any negative, generalized reactions.
"Today's indictment is against individuals. It's not against a particular group or a particular faith," U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta said.
The grand jury's indictment said the group's alleged ringleader, Narseal÷ Batiste, told a confidential informant he meant to build an "Islamic Army" to wage a holy war. But in Liberty City, where camera crews set up shop outside the suspects' warehouse headquarters, residents questioned that connection.
Families of two suspects said the men were involved in Bible studies.
The mother of one, Stanley Grant Phanor, said he went to church every Sunday.
"He loves to read the Bible," said Phanor's mother, Elizene Phanor.
Minister Rasul Muhammad,÷ of the Muhammad Mosque No. 29, criticized journalists for initially reporting the suspects were "black Muslim radicals." He said such portrayals unfairly linked a faith and an ethnicity to crime.
"We didn't ask what church Timothy McVeigh came from," he said, of the Oklahoma City bomber.
