During an appearance on CNN with Chris Cuomo, The Council of American Islamic Affairs (CAIR) Los Angeles Director Hussam Ayloush said America was partially to blame for the terrorist attack in San Bernardino:
Let’s not forget that some of our own foreign policy, as Americans, as the West, have fueled that extremism.
When we support coup leaders in Egypt or other places, when we supports dictatorship, oppressive regimes around the world that push people over on the edge, then they become extremists, then they become terrorists. We are partly responsible.
Terrorism is a global problem, not a Muslim problem. And the solution has to be global. Everyone has a role in it.
Excuses, excuses. I expect nothing less from CAIR. It’s no different than when after the 9/11 attacks Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said that America “should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stand toward the Palestinian cause.” Prince Alwaleed said this after giving New York City a $10 million check. To his everlasting credit, then NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani refused to accept the check. Nearly 15 years after 9/11 the party line remains the same.
So if it wasn’t for America, Muslims wouldn’t feel the need to buy guns and build IED factories in their home and leave their children in the care of grandma so they could go to an office Christmas party and kill their co-workers.
The next time CAIR “condemns” a Islamic terrorist attack in this country give it 48 hours because America will be “partly” to blame. Then give it another week and CAIR will say America is entirely to blame.
