The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is making a point on showing how much it treasures its interfaith defenders. Recent CAIR fundraisers and events have highlighted their partnership, flattering them enough to overlooking its well-documented ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in the terrorism-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The federal government specifically identified CAIR as an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a secret body set up to advance the Hamas agenda. In 2009, a federal judge ruled in favor of preserving the label, citing the “ample” evidence linking CAIR to Hamas.

The annual banquet for the Oklahoma chapter of CAIR is honoring Reverend William Tabbernee of the Oklahoma Council of Churches with a Building Bridges Award. His group also sponsored the event. The keynote speaker of the event is Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, who

The rally in front of the White House was extended until busloads of participants from all over the United States arrived, and then the march began down Pennsylvania Avenue to the U.S. Capitol. Members of other people groups that have been marginalized and persecuted under Islamist supremacism joined the Copts to show solidarity.

Kermit Gosnell’s Abortion Trial and United Methodists

Juicy Ecumenism - The Institute on Religion & Democracy's Blog


Although most media so far are ignoring it, the trial of a Philadelphia abortionist has opened a nasty window into the abortion industry. Dr. Kermit Gosnell is specifically charged with delivering seven late term babies alive and then killing them with scissors. He’s also charged with killing at least one mother.

According to a prosecutor, Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” which he called “snipping.”

Gosnell ran his abortion mill for over 30 years, so God knows how often he performed this “snipping.” He reputedly destroyed hundreds of unborn babies by cutting their spinal cords, but the records are incomplete. Current Pennsylvania law restricts abortion after six months. So the thousands of babies he destroyed under six months…
