PSA on FOX = Propaganda from Saudi Arabia - from Nihil A. Wad director of The Council of Anti American Islamic Radicals

MIM calls upon FOX to give 'equal time' to picture of CAIR director Awad with 'Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade" scarf speaking at pro Hizbollah rally in DC.
February 9, 2005

Calls for Destruction of Israel, Washington DC, April 20. 2002
Washington D.C
April 20, 2002

Nihad Awad, Executive Director of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the speaker. Hezbollah flag is on the left.

"...Many of the speakers at anti-Israel rallies also called for the destruction of Israel. In D.C., in April, a speaker representing a national Muslim organization declared, "The Zionists live by the sword, they would die by the sword!" He also urged the crowd to chant repeatedly, "We need to bring Palestine back to 1947!" Another activist at the same rally declared, "Israel must go!" and "globalize the Intifada!" The stage that produced this rhetoric was adorned with a large flag of the Hezbollah, a group on the State Department's list of designated foreign terrorist organizations..."

MIM Note: Sami Al Arian who was a speaker at the DC rally was jailed in 2003 on terrorism charges. Amer Jubran, a Muslim 'peace activist' who was forced to 'leave' the US in 2004, is now carrying on his radical Islamist activities in Jordan .

For a list of participants please see below.

CAIR :Public Service Announcements aka Propaganda from Saudi Arabia

Message from CAIR to FOX viewers of 24

" Hi. My name is Nihil A. Wad . I play the CAIR Wahabist agent trying to ban Fox's '24 who pretends to be a Muslim civil rights campaigner. I would like to take a moment to talk to you about something that I think is very important.Now,while terrorism is obviously one of the most critical challenges facing our nation and the world, it is important to recognize that CAIR and the American Muslim community are trying to fool their fellow Americans into thinking that we denounce and resist all forms of terrorism. If we really did that , we would have no time to intimidate tv stations like FOX into airing spots like this. So while watching 24 please bear that in mind."

MIM: As one can see from the picture above, CAIR director Nihad Awad has publicly shown support for the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and Hizbollah. All the more reason to demand that FOX give equal time to a real 'Public Service Announcement' showing that the Muslim 'civil rights' groups such as CAIR, which demanded that FOX air spots paying lip service to the myth that "the Muslim community stands firmly besides their fellow Americans in denouncing and resisting all forms of terrorism", are exposed for the Saudi funded radical Islamist front groups that they really are.

In the interests of public service CAIR could also air spots showing all of the former CAIR staff members, such as Ismail Randall Royer , Bassem Khafagi, and Ghassan Elashi, who were convicted on fraud and terrorism charges with the disclaimer that :

" Not all CAIR employees have been convicted on fraud and terrorism charges like Randall Royer, Bassem Khafagi, and Ghassan Elashi ... Please bear that in mind that in mind as you look at the picture of CAIR director Nihad Awad wearing an Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade scarf while speaking at a pro Hizbollah rally. "


MIM: For more on the charges against Khafagi, Royer, and Elashi see:

MIM: Recently CAIR was named as a defendant in a 9/11 terror lawsuit filed by the family of murdered FBI Agent John P. O'Neill,Sr. Details of charges were documented by Dr.Daniel Pipes :

"...86. Council on American Islamic Relations and CAIR Canada (collectively, CAIR), have aided, abetted, and materially sponsored and al Qaeda and international terrorism. CAIR is an outgrowth of the Hamas front group the Islamic Association of Palestine..."

"...87. CAIR and CAIR-Canada have, since their inception, been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism. These organizations play a unique role in the terrorist network. .."

"...88. The role of CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to wage PSYOPS (psychological warfare) and disinformation activities on behalf of Whabbi-based [Wahhabi-based, DP] Islamic terrorists throughout North America. They are the intellectual "shock troops" of Islamic terrorism. In the years and months leading up to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 these organizations were very effective in helping to ensure that North American law enforcement and intelligence officials were sufficiently deaf, dumb, and blind to help pave the way for the attacks on the United States. The role played by these entities is an absolutely essential part of the mix of forces arrayed against the United States as they help soften-up targeted countries so as to facilitate and enhance the likelihood for a successful attack..."

Comment: (1) This filing explicitly ties CAIR to "the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism" that carried out 9/11, a first to the best of my knowledge.

(2) If the suit is successful, CAIR (1) will have been legally tied to Al-Qaeda and (2) will be partially responsible for damages amounting to US$100 billion.

(3) This filing, when added to Anti-CAIR's counter suit, suggest that despite CAIR's growing litigiousness, it will find itself legally more on the defensive than the offensive in coming months. (December 30, 2004)


MIM: Dr. Daniel Pipes comments on what he calls Fox's "3/4 cave" to CAIR for broadcasting this PSA

Feb. 7, 2005 update: Fox Broadcasting aired a disclaimer during 24 this evening. The star of the show suddenly appeared after the first block of ads and made the following inarticulate, ungrammatical statement, one that CAIR claims it was consulted about:

I'm Kiefer Sutherland. I play counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer on Fox's 24. I would like to take a moment to talk to you about something that I think is very important. Now, while terrorism is obviously one of the most critical challenges facing our nation and the world, it is important to recognize that the American Muslim community stands firmly beside their fellow Americans in denouncing and resisting all forms of terrorism. So, in watching 24, please bear that in mind.

Comment: That semi-cave has now become a 3/4s cave.

The Muslim Public Affairs Council is not satisfied with this, however, and dismisses tonight's disclaimer as "feeble" because its message is "far less powerful" than the story line. But there is one piece of good news in the MPAC press release, namely its confirmation that at the January 13 meeting, Fox executives "rejected the suggestion that they alter the substance of the show." Permalink

3) MPAC has a point; indeed, there is something pathetic and ineffective about this disclaimer. Imagine if, in the middle of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, an actor comes on stage to announce, "Jews stand firmly with their fellow Venetians to denounce greed." It would be more weird than convincing.

4) Sutherland's stilted reading of the disclaimer gave the impression he was compelled to do so. In fact, one correspondent compares his performance with that of a hostage in an Iraqi jihad video who grimly makes a public statement while his captor's gun invisibly sticks into his ribs. Permalink


MIM: William Mayer of Pipeline News has this take on the ad :

Out Foxed II - Hi, My Name Is…

"Hi. My name is Kiefer Sutherland. And I play counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer on Fox's 24. I would like to take a moment to talk to you about a PSA that preceded ‘24' on Sunday evening, the subject matter of which I know absolutely nothing about, being a Hollywood airhead and all.

Just for the record, I was forced by Fox News to record this piece if I wanted to continue making the big bucks from the cretins that apparently now run this network of fools and poseurs.

Sorry…ok…let me level with you, terrorism is obviously one of the most critical challenges facing our nation and the world, it is important not to recognize that the American Muslim community has made it abundantly clear that many of them not only tolerate terrorism but regularly attend Friday Mosque services where anti-American Imams, under the employ of Wahabbist Saudis, lecture them about the merits of killing Israeli women and children, chopping off the heads of Americans or American sympathizers in Iraq and in general bringing Jihad to the United States.

In addition many American Muslims have not knowingly given great sums of money to phony charities which support terrorism overseas, funding suicide bombings and the like in the name of Allah. They have not attempted to purchase rocket launchers in FBI stings, or murdered innocent families in New Jersey simply because they are Christian.

In general they have acted in a manner consistent with the religion of peace.

In defense of such practices, a holy army of Islamist lobbyists, such as CAIR, have sprung up all over the place and have succeeded in persuading Fox into making these announcements so that Al-Jazeera might have additional content to broadcast throughout the Mideast.

Fox calls this fair and balanced and I agree.

Everyone knows that terrorists come in all shapes, sizes and ethnic backgrounds.

Caucasian nuns, grandfathers in wheelchairs, 9 month old infants; all fit the profile of the international terrorist to a "T."

Muslims have never been guilty or even charged with terrorism, but of course you already know that if you have watched Fox for any length of time.

In conclusion let me once again state that terrorism and Islam are mutually contradictory terms, like oil and water or the Captain and Tenille, they simply never mix.

So join with me now in watching ‘24' secure in the knowledge that the next time you hear of an innocent Christian being beheaded that a Muslim did not do it and that the forty-something secretary next to you right now might very well be planning an airline bombing in her spare time, better call the Feds on her right now.

I am Kiefer Sutherland, thank you again and good night America."
