CAIR as new thought Police

by PIBB Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012 at 4:16 PM

Is the Council on American Islamic relations attempting to censor libraries?

What do you do when you find a book in the library that you don't like? Well, CAIR- the Council on American-Islamic Relations (also known as the unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy land Foundation terrorism trial) issues an action alert, urging parents to have their children .report sightings of the book. How positively ....Soviet. of them


Anti-Islam Book Found in Broward County Public School Library

Asalamu Allaikum,

CAIR has received a report that an anti-Islam book has been found in a Broward County Public School Library. The title of this book is "Islam and Terrorism" authored by Mark A. Gabriel a well know anti-Islam pundit that self proclaims scholarly knowledge of the Quran.

This book contains dozens of xenophobic statements and inaccurate information regarding the Quran and teachings of the Prophet Mohammed. We have submitted a formal complaint to the Broward County Public School System and requested information through the Freedom of Information Act.

While the School Board is investigating we need the Muslim communities help in identifying if this was an isolated incident or if there was mass distribution of this book into the Broward County School system. We also do not know which School Districts this book was distributed to. It may have been distributed State Wide.

Action Needed.

Please show your children a copy of the Action Alert and have them look in their schools library for a copy of this book. "Islam and Terrorism". If your child finds this or similar books in the library please contact CAIR Florida immediately.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this extremely important matter ! Please forward this ACTION ALERT to your email list.


I haven't read this book, but I certainly don't want CAIR acting as thought police regarding what books can and can't be read. Its highly rated on, with 73 reviewers giving it 5 stars.

The author's biography states that Mr. Gabriel has a doctorate in Islamic studies. (And this makes him an "anti-Islamic pundit" why?)

Dr. Mark Gabriel was born and raised in Egypt as a Muslim. More than just a practicing Muslim, he was a scholar from his youth. His first milestone was to complete memorization of the Quran at age twelve. He went on to attend Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, the oldest, most prestigious Islamic University in the world, where he earned bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees in Islamic History and culture. He also holds a master’s degree in world religion and a doctorate in Christian education. He travels and lectures for a variety of groups all over the world.

So do something for freedom today. Pick up a copy of Mark Gabriel's book.- its only $10.40. Read it. Like what it says? Find it credible? Pass it on to a friend, or better yet, donate it to your local library.
