CAIR Endorses Obama's Plan for 'Violent Extremism'

Ha! Good news. An unindicted co-conspirator - the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) - in the largest terrorism financing trial in American history has endorsed Barack Obama's plan for dealing with 'violent extremism.' CAIR, which has ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood has issued a press release conveying its support for the president's plan. None other than CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad - who has also expressed support for Hamas - issued a statement.

Via PR Newswire:
"American Muslims support objective and holistic efforts to ensure that all of our nation's citizens are safe from violent extremists. Programs that build trust between law enforcement authorities and the communities they serve are crucial to this effort. American Muslims are natural enemies of violent extremists and have a vested interest in preventing any attempts by such predatory individuals to recruit members of our community.

"Our nation faces a number of threats. Al-Qaeda and its allies, white supremacists, violent anti-Muslim extremists, and violent anti-government activists must all be confronted. A successful counter-extremism strategy will avoid the type of collective guilt and community demonization promoted by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and will instead address credible threats based on objective data, not political agendas or personal vendettas.

"Any effective strategy must avoid viewing the relationship between the American Muslim community and government agencies solely through the prism of national security and should recognize Muslims as partners in projecting the best of American principles and values to the world. Our government must also engage with American Muslim institutions and individuals proven to enjoy community support."

Awad added that a key concern of American Muslims is the use of taxpayer funds to hire anti-Muslim trainers such as Walid Shoebat, Robert Spencer and others. "Use of anti-Muslim trainers poisons local partnerships."
"Officials of the local, state and federal agencies that seek interaction with American Muslims should not be taught to hate Islam. The federal government must ensure that there are standards and accountability for the funds it disburses," said Awad.
I wonder if Obama's affinity for groups like CAIR is why his approval numbers among Muslims is 80% while 40% of American voters strongly DISAPPROVE of his performance.
