CAIR Condemns Texas Attack But Lashes Out At Intended Victims
by Chuck Ross
Under the auspices of condemning an attack carried out Sunday in Garland, Texas by two men suspected of having ties to radical Islam, the Muslim civil rights group the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) strongly implied that the intended victims had it coming.
Two men from Phoenix armed with assault rifles began shooting outside of an event hosted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), a group founded by Pamela Geller, an outspoken critic of radical Islam.
Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who has had bounties placed on his head by numerous terrorist groups, was on hand to present an award for AFDI's "Draw the Prophet" contest. After the two gunmen opened fire on a security guard outside of the event, a Garland police officer armed with his service weapon reportedly took out both assailants.
