Here’s today’s Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
In Congress, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is making room for radical Islam. Literally. Last week, despite protests from other members of Congress, Pelosi gave CAIRthe Council on American-Islamic Relationsa meeting room in the U.S. Capitol to host a panel on Islam. The groups already been tied with terror groups and questionable donors. In the last few years, five of their members have either been convicted or deported. Its ironic. Earlier this year, Pelosi wouldnt give congressmen a room to hold Bible studiesbut shell give one to radical Muslims, despite their animosity toward the very government that she serves. And she did so knowing that CAIR has refused to condemn terror groups like Hezbollah and Hamas. Any organization that condones violence has no place in Americas greatest symbol of freedom and democracy. As one critic said, You cant fight a war on terrorism when [youre] acting with a terror front. In the future, Pelosi would be wise to handle CAIR with care.
