A Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Muslim Brotherhood linked organization leader was denied membership in the Broward County Republican Executive Committee.
This is a real victory for the Republican Party and could send shock waves across American.
This vote was against a political organization that supports the implementation of shariah law in America, has defended convicted terrorist Sami Al Arian and is an un-indited co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation trial. CAIR has been linked in documents uncovered by the FBI to HAMAS. The Muslim Brotherhood is a geo-political organization and CAIR is it’s primary political arm in America.
According to Commentary Magazine, “The Broward County Republican Party blocked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida spokesperson Nezar Hamze from joining its executive board last night, a decision that some see as a sign of anti-Muslim discrimination, reports McClatchy. The McClatchy headline emphasizes the fact Hamze is Muslim, but the Broward GOP denies religion played a role. And based on the reports so far, there doesn’t seem to be much reason to doubt their argument.”
Commentary Magazine notes, “As the face of CAIR Florida, Hamze has made a name for himself in the Broward conservative community – and not always a good one. You may remember him from this public spat he had with Rep. Alan West, which went viral a few months back (incidentally, that’s not the only clash he’s gotten into with West).”
McClatchy reports, “[T]here are also questions over how long Hamze has been registered as a Republican. Party Vice Chair Collen Stolberg claims he’s only been registered since August, and had no affiliation before that, while Hamze maintains he’s been a registered Republican for the past 10 years. Whichever is accurate, it looks like Hamze’s interest in Republican Party activism started fairly recently. Earlier this month, Salon’s Justin Elliott reported Hamze had just submitted his petition to join the Broward GOP executive board in August. So there seems to be a slew of reasons the Broward GOP might be uneasy having him on the executive board, in addition to his CAIR ties.”
This is the first time any Republican Party Executive Committee has separated the Muslim mosque from the Muslim state. We shall see if the RNC follows in the Broward REC’s footsteps and does the same.
