Hamas-linked CAIR lies about anti-Sharia initiatives to raise funds

I just received this fundraising appeal from Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of Hamas-linked CAIR:

Dear Friend,

As-salaamu alaykum. (Peace be to you.) I hope you have a blessed Friday.

We need your help to raise $50,000 before August 1 to ensure that an additional attorney is available to help defend your right to freely practice your religion.

They will probably get it, too. They have access to numerous moneyed Islamic supremacist interests, while we have to struggle for every penny to fight against Islamic supremacist encroachment in the U.S. — then, in a classic example of projection, they claim we are rolling in dough and only in it for the money.

Promoters of Islamophobia like David Yerushalmi, ACT! for America and others tried to pass anti-Muslim laws in more than 20 states recently. They are perfectly willing to sacrifice your constitutional protections to sell their fear-mongering and misinformation about Islam and American Muslims.

Can you imagine living in a state that has an anti-Islam law in its legal code? This could prevent you from exercising your choice in marriage contracts, wills or even home finance….

Awad is lying. Non-Muslims want to outlaw the elements of Sharia that interfere with Constitutionally protected freedoms, not Islam as an individual religious practice. These anti-Sharia measures are aimed at political Islam, an authoritarian ideology at variance with the Constitution in numerous particulars: Sharia denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people before the law. That is what people want to restrict, and the elements of Sharia that contradict Constitutional freedoms are all they want to restrict.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
