CAIR's Hooper Defames

Doug "Abraham" Hooper, mouthpiece for the execrable CAIR, defames and its creator, Robert Spencer, using Chicago Sun-Times as soapbox.

Mr Spencer rebuts, and today's recording excerpts part of that excellent rebuttal:

What of the posts Hooper does quote? He would do well to examine them closely before dismissing them as "Islamophobia." The first post he quotes says that if he is "angry from time to time when it comes to the subject of Islam, that is the fault of Islam and its thriving terrorist establishment....It is good to hate your enemies: We are going to have to kill them."

What about this offends Hooper? Abraham, you are welcome to comment here and explain, or to email me at, but in the meantime I will speculate a bit. I suspect that what offends you about this is the idea that any anger anyone has toward Islam or Muslims could be the "fault of Islam." So consider it from the infidel point of view for just a moment. Here you are in the Chicago Sun Times wringing your hands about "Islamophobia" and posing as a victim, when in fact several members of your organization have been arrested and convicted of various terrorism-related activities, and you no longer contest Anti-CAIR's characterization of CAIR as a "terrorist supporting front organization" that "wishes nothing more than the implementation of Sharia law in America" and is a group that was "founded by Hamas supporters which seeks to overthrow Constitutional government in the United States and replace it with an Islamist theocracy using our own Constitution as protection."

Can you see the cognitive dissonance there? I suspect you can. And don't think infidels haven't noticed it also. I believe that you, Mr. Hooper, are one of those who are responsible for the anger some non-Muslims feel toward Muslims today: these non-Muslims are not fools. They can see through posturing and disingenuousness. They see all the things that don't tally with your professed anti-terrorism, and see that you have never answered lingering questions about where your organization really stands. They can see how you trump up anti-Muslim hate crimes. But of course, I doubt any of this will cause you concern: after all, you are entirely willing to use that anger for your own purposes in the Chicago Sun Times, with Jim Ritter as your willing dupe.
