On August 16th the Hartford Courant ran a story about the owner of the Connecticut Tigers, E. Miles Prentice, refusing to meet with a group with federally recognized connections to the US government designated terrorist group Hamas. That group is the Connecticut chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Most people would cheer someone for refusing to meet with a group that has been recognized in federal courts as being directly tied to a terrorist group responsible for many deaths. But not the Hartford Courant.
This shows a disconnect between the media and the average American citizen. After all, most Americans that live on the East Coast can’t get 9/11 out of their head. Granted that was an attack by terrorists called Al Qaeda. BUT both Al Qaeda and Hamas have the same parent! The Muslim Brotherhood. Osama Bin Laden was a recognized and celebrated member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas IS a chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is in their Charter.
Just yesterday (August 21st ) the Washington Post ran a story by the parents of Israeli Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, who was kidnapped by Hamas and killed five years ago. The parents are pleading for his body to be returned. Why was this story running in the USA unless they believed it possible if the US connection, aka CAIR or American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) had some influence? It could have been an attempt to get the US State Department to exert pressure, but remember now, Hamas refused our money so they could continue to pay their terrorists who attack and kill Jews. So the government influence was not the reason.
This incredibly foolish and irresponsible article by the Hartford Courant no where stated that Mr. Prentice was refusing to meet with a group that DOES HAVE terrorist ties. But they did state Mr. Prentice’s connections to the Center for Security Policy, labeling it as “an organization identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim hate group.” The timing for this article could not have been worse. USA Today published “The Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate-based scam that nearly caused me to be murdered,” on August 17th. That is just one day later!
The Muslim Brotherhood groups in the USA are into a long range plan of Islamization of the United States of America. If you think me wrong I suggest you read their own material which the federal courts have introduced as evidence in the largest terrorism finance trials in our history.
So, what was the purpose in this news release? If it was part of a plan, what would be the reason? It seems to have activated
- Mayor of Norwich, Peter Nystrom, who readily accepts SPLC as an authority on who is a hate group. Does this excuse his ignorance of is connected to terrorists?
- The Norwich Area Clergy Association has decided to take a vocal and active “mediator” role. As if avoiding connections with affiliates of terrorists need a religious motivation?
Tark Aouadi is quick to scream Islamophobia before all the facts come in. When the Diyanet Mosque of New Haven was burned on the first floor from an act of arson, he called the media and made the charge that this was due to a hate crime. In fact the New Haven register went so far that day to accuse everyone who voted for Trump of being haters. But the Police said there was no evidence that this was a hate crime.
If the meeting with the clergy includes any representatives of CAIR, Mr. Prentice should hold to his original statement of refusal to meet with a group that has connections to terrorists. There has never been evidence of bias by the minor league baseball club. This ruse by CAIR to get a meeting with Mr. Prentice needs to stopped.
If Mr. Prentice holds to his refusal to meet with Tark Aouadi, executive director of CAIR CT, he will be in the company of a Connecticut Marion McGarry (D-12), who also refused to meet with him [ADDED: and/or his organization]. Perhaps this whole thing is a ruse to get Tarik some media time. Maybe he hopes this will earn him his 5 –minutes of fame?
Hold fast Mr. Prentice! You stand with our governments allies in Muslim countries when you refuse to meet with Hamas affiliate CAIR. The United Arab Emirates declared CAIR a designated terrorist group in 2014.
Oh and for those of you out there still foolish enough to believe that CAIR is a civil rights group for Muslims, ask yourselves why they defrauded Muslims by their promotion of a fake lawyer, and settled a case after 11 years thanks in large part to the Middle East Form’s help on June 4, 2019.
This article was cross posted on to Dr. Rich Sweir's site. There CAIR official Tark Aouadi wrote the following comment:
Thank you for your article. I would love to have a coffee with you and talk in depth on this and any other topic.
Point of fact, I never asked to meet Marion McGarry as you article states "If Mr. Prentice holds to his refusal to meet with Tark Aouadi, executive director of CAIR CT, he will be in the company of a Connecticut Marion McGarry (D-12), who also refused to meet with him. "
We also did nothing to precipitate this story. Had this story been about a team owner belonging to a group that spread conspiracy theories and lies against members of the judaic tradition or African Americans or Irish Catholics the need for a meeting and even greater remedies would not be questioned. Now that its about Muslims that some how makes it better?
I understand that this comment may do nothing, but would welcome a chance to talk to you on this topic.
Thank you again for your article.Perhaps Mr. Aouadi has never read the source of the article on Mr. McGarry. IT IS CAIR! https://www.cair.com/cair_ct_calls_for_resignation_of_conn_official_over_xenophobic_islamophobic_posts . Perhaps he does not recognize his own interview by the Associated Press which ran in the Hartford Courant, which is also cited above https://www.courant.com/sports/baseball/hc-sp-connecticut-tigers-muslim-rights-20190815-20190815-qtzrbdln2nhyxbuyd2hplknhli-story.html. I call this an excellent example of being caught spreading misinformation to save his own skin. So Mr. Aouadi is calling CAIR, his employer a liar now??
