CAIR – The Council of American Islamic calls for removal of Confederate Memorials.

Washington DC – Nihad Awad, chairman of CAIR, a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood, is call State governments to remove all Confederate memorials.  He said, “Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history.”  Remarking on slavery.

This is highly hypocritical as Islam is responsible for much the slavery in the past and current day.  Muhammad had over 6,000 slaves, many were his sex slaves that we usually call Concubines.  It was the Muslims who first made slaves of the Africans in the interior and brought them to the coast to be sold to the Europeans and the Americans.  The Muslims of North Africa also enslaved over 1.5 million white Europeans from the 1500’s through to the 1700’s.

In the Shariah Law Book we have the following statues:

ROT o9.13 When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.

ROT o9.14 When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph considers the interests and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.  If the prisoner becomes a Muslim then he may not be killed, and one of the other three alternatives is chosen.

This was practiced by Muhammad and taught for faithful Muslims to follow.  Chapter eight of the Qur’an gives the rules for war booty.  The fighters had to pay a tax on all they gained from the booty to Muhammad; this is called the Khums, which means a fifth.  The Khums tax went to support the prophet and his household.  When the Khums were paid in slaves, Muhammad got to choose the most desirable of the women and strongest of the men for his fifth.

Council on American-Islamic Relations: Tear Down Every Confederate Memorial

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.

CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. At the Charlottesville, Va. rally, James Alex Fields, a rally attendee, allegedly plowed his grey Dodge Challenger through a large group of people on a pedestrian mall. One woman, Heather Heyer, died in the incident. About 20 other people suffered injuries.

Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

“A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

“Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.

CAIR has created a template for state governments, municipal governments and school district officials to use for introducing resolutions seeking the removal of Confederate memorials and other symbolism.

On Saturday, CAIR denounced President Donald Trump for his remarks about the white supremacist rally. Trump exhibited a “failure of moral leadership,” the Muslim advocacy group said.

A number of local governments have removed or contemplated removing Confederate monuments in recent years. Demands for removal of the statues has grown considerably louder and more forceful in response to the events which unfolded in Charlottesville on Saturday.

Leaders in Lexington, Ky., Gainesville, Fl. and Baltimore, Md. have announced plans to remove statues since Saturday.

On Monday evening, a group of protestors toppled a monument to Confederate soldiers in Durham, North Carolina. (VIDEO: Protestors Topple Confederate Statue In North Carolina)

In May, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed legislation protecting Confederate memorials from removal or modification as long as they have been in place for longer than 40 years. (RELATED: Alabama Governor Signs Bill Protecting Confederate Memorials)

In 2009, CAIR was listed by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme that provided funding to the terror group Hamas.
