CAIR Float in Veterans Day Parade Starts Firestorm

Tulsa, Oklahoma – CAIR is linked to a terrorist organization.  And yet, they have a float in the Veterans Day parade in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Veterans. Terrorists. Those two do not go together. Yet Tulsa’s Veterans Day Parade Association approved the application for the Muslim Brotherhood-backed organization’s float. And now some of the other parade participants are refusing to march next to them.

Conservatives are furious

The Conservative organization Tulsa 912 is set to be in line beside the CAIR float in the parade. Some of them are extremely upset. Some are worried that the parade association was trying to keep the information from getting out.

“I believe all American entrants who the parade is intended to honor should be made aware as soon as possible that they are being asked to share their honor with the Muslim Brotherhood, sworn enemy of the United States and our ally Israel and an enemy in our current war on the Islamic jihad in which American soldiers are fighting and dying.” Larry Williamson, Tulsa 912 member.

For its part, the local Oklahoma CAIR claims it just wants to honor the military of the United States for keeping America safe. Local head of the group, Adam Soltani, says that it’s something “they’ve wanted to do for a long time.” No doubt.

The right to participate, but not the wise choice

Yes, this organization has a right under the Constitution to be in the Veteran’s Day Parade. Yes, there are many Muslim veterans in our Armed Forces. Yes, CAIR was started by American Muslims…but CAIR specifically was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a case of finances going to Hamas, which is a terrorist organization. And though CAIR vehemently denies that, it is public record and open for all to see. What unindicted co-conspirator really means is that they are part of the finance network for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Terrorist Connections

The investigative project wrote:

“Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, and trial exhibits show the Brotherhood created the Palestine Committee. CAIR officials adamantly deny any involvement with either Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood. The Weich letter, however, shows that the Department of Justice has not wavered in its conclusion that the internal records it possesses prove a connection.”

In 2009, the FBI was directed to cut all ties to CAIR due to their connection to Hamas. The Oklahoma chapter of CAIR had been scheduled to participate in a meeting with the FBI and local Muslims…but the FBI suddenly cancelled that meeting because of CAIR’s participation. Read the letter here.

The Veterans Day Parade

Any organization that is connected in any way to our enemies should not be participants in a Veterans Day Parade meant to honor our Military.

The veterans have no problems with Muslim veterans in the parade, but they do have a problem with CAIR.

“Several veterans wrote or called unhappy about CAIR in the parade – one of them who served in special ops in Iraq said he is working with other veterans to plan some kind of legal and peaceful protest.

He said he is fine with Muslims in the parade, but not CAIR, which he says, once again, has ties to terrorist organizations. Bill Sherman, TulsaWorld

[Ed. note: Joe Wurzelbacher, better known to many as “Joe the Plumber,” says he questions CAIR’s intentions, but not their right to participate.  In an article posted here, he indicated that he may appear at the parade and suggested: “When the CAIR float comes by and throws out candy as is tradition – I’m going to throw pork rinds back.”]
