CAIR at YouTube
Yesterday I featured a video from YouTube of a CNN report echoing CAIR talking points. I didn’t notice at the time that the video was uploaded to YouTube by a CAIR official, Ahmed Bedier.
After the LGF entry about the video, comments were posted at YouTube pointing out the Saudi influence in US mosques, and criticizing the deceptive statements made in the video by CAIR director Nihad Awad. In response, Ahmed Bedier, the owner of the video, turned off comments for the video clip and according to a reader who emailed, deleted (or had deleted) at least one comment with facts about Saudi funding of mosques.
This is how the Council on American Islamic Relations handles free speech—by shutting it down when it gets close to the truth—and it’s highly revealing to see their inability to handle criticism in a wide open forum like YouTube.
Here’s Bedier’s profile page at YouTube with links to all the taqqiya videos he’s posted: Bedier Channel. It’s a library of CAIR dissembling and victimhood, and I hope Bedier continues to post this stuff. The more people who see it the better.
