CAIR wins again

Pressure from that bastion of civil rights, CAIR has caused a prominent Islamic critic, retired Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin to back out of a prayer breakfast at West Point.  Evidentally the good general has been on CAIR's bad side for a while; he has been criticizing Islam by saying the war on "terror" is a war against Satan.  Maybe if he had said it was the fault of the Jinn the fallout would not have been so bad.

The general is out, thanks to the bullying tactics at CAIR.  I sympathize with the general, CAIR did the same thing to me.

CAIR pressures retired general, critic of Islam, to back out of West Point event

The Council on American-Islamic Relations announced Monday night that it had successfully prevented retired Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin from speaking at an upcoming prayer breakfast at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
“We welcome Mr. Boykin’s withdrawal from this event and hope that the speaker who replaces him will offer cadets a spiritual message that promotes tolerance and mutual understanding,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a statement.
Oh, you mean like Islam does?
West Point initially balked at the calls to remove Boykin — a former military intelligence officer — from the event.
Lt. Col. Sherri Reed of West Point told The Associated Press that cadets are “purposefully exposed to different perspectives and cultures.”
“The National Prayer Breakfast Service will be pluralistic with Christians, Jewish, and Muslim cadets participating,” Reed said. “We are comfortable and confident that what retired Lt. Gen. Boykin will share about prayer, soldier care and selfless service, will be in keeping with the broad range of ideas normally considered by our cadets.”
Boykin backed out of the event on his own volition, according to a report from Fox News.
The retired lieutenant general has been on CAIR’s radar for casting Islam in a poor light, specifically in speeches in which he analogizing the War on Terror to a war against Satan.
CAIR and the group pushed hard for a retraction of Boykin’s invitation to the event due to his “Islamophobic” views.
Boykin is not Islamophobic, he is sick of Islamic hegemony, ill at the slow but steady advancement of sharia; he is, in other words, Islamonauseous.

More likely, Boykin backed out because he was pressured by his superiors. His Islamophobia is so blatant, it undermines US efforts to control Muslim countries. Like that religious nut in Florida who burned the Koran and got denounced by the head of the army in Afghanistan, saying it was making the job more difficult. Like this blog...
