The Council on American-Islamic Relations, an organization which calls itself a civil liberties group, has a history of trying to silence those who dare to be critical of Islam or Muslims.
Robert Spencer, of Jihad Watch, spoke at the Temple of the Arts in Los Angeles on Yom Kippur.
From CAIR's press release:
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.Robert Spencer responds:
Am I anti-Muslim? I answered that here. I challenge CAIR and Ayloush: if I have said anything actually false about Islam, produce it. From my own words, not those of others. And prove that it is false.CAIR is as likely to meet Robert Spencer's challenge as he is to be intimidated by CAIR's usual tactics.
This CAIR press release is yet another example of that organization's attempt to stifle free speech about Islam and terrorism in the United States, and to intimidate into silence those who dare to step out of line.
