CAIR Welcomes ‘Elimination’ of Osama Bin Laden

An Islamic civil rights group has called a press conference in Washington on Monday to discuss the death of al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, someone who “never represented Muslims or Islam,” the group said.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued the following statement early Monday morning:
“We join our fellow citizens in welcoming the announcement that Osama bin Laden has been eliminated as a threat to our nation and the world through the actions of American military personnel. As we have stated repeatedly since the 9/11 terror attacks, bin Laden never represented Muslims or Islam. In fact, in addition to the killing of thousands of Americans, he and Al Qaeda caused the deaths of countless Muslims worldwide. We also reiterate President Obama’s clear statement tonight that the United States is not at war with Islam.”
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan pretend they’re “moderate Muslims.” Yet another crack has appeared in their crumbling facade, however.
Remember Rauf’s statements during the ground zero mosque controversy?
