CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, has launched a new attack on Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, left, narrator of our movie, The Third Jihad. Jasser, a Muslim, has been relentless in his efforts to expose the radical Islamic agenda of CAIR and other groups who purport themselves as peace-loving Muslims. Jasser was just appointed to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Jasser, a former physician for the U.S. Navy, recently organized a demonstration and held a press conference in favor of the New York City Police Department and their chief Ray Kelly who had come under fire by CAIR for their (completely legal) counter terrorism efforts in protecting New York City.  

In addition, Jasser helped to lead the opposition to an mega Islamic cultural center slated to be built next to Ground Zero, the site of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

Playing the Islamophobia card, a tried and true tactic of taqiyya, Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, was quoted as saying, “[Jasser] has long been viewed by American Muslims and the colleagues in the civil liberties community as a mere sock puppet for Islam haters and an enabler of Islamophobia.”

Jasser has called the leadership of the majority of U.S. Muslim groups “malignant” and accused them of preaching a form of “political Islam.”

Jasser formed the American Islamic Forum for Democracy to address these problems. He testified the first in a series of hearings last year held by the House Homeland Security Committee to investigate the threat of homegrown terrorism.
