Unindicted Co-Conspirators Whining Again
The Council on American Islamic Relations, one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the case against Hamas-linked “charity” The Holy Land Foundation, is once again pushing a bogus, inflated report on “anti-Muslim bias” in America: CAIR reports bias rise.
According to antisemitic executive director Nihad Awad, we’re not letting people from Islamic nations into the United States quickly enough.
Anti-Muslim bias is higher than ever, an Islamic civil rights group said yesterday, based on figures showing a 25 percent increase in complaints during 2006.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations cited 2,467 complaints in 2006, up from 1,972 complaints in 2005, primarily about delays in citizenship and naturalization requests. Many Muslims who have taken citizenship exams, CAIR said, have to wait far longer than the 120 days mandated by federal law for their naturalization background checks.
“Instead of 120 days, it’s taking five years,” said Nihad Awad, CAIR’s executive director. “If the government has to take five years for security measures, that’s a major blow for our people.”
Muslims aren’t the only immigrants affected, said CAIR legal director Arsalan Iftikhar, but “there is a disparate impact on people from Muslim and Arab nations who are affected by this.”
