CAIR Celebrates Pentagon's Disinvite of Franklin Graham

A Muslim-rights group designated by the Justice Department as a terrorist co-conspirator celebrated its role in the cancelation of evangelist Franklin Graham's appearance at a National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon.

Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, said his invitation to be honorary chairman at the May 6 Pentagon service was revoked after Muslim members of the military complained about his description of Islam after the 2001 terrorist attacks as "a very evil and wicked religion."

Graham explained his 2001 remarks in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, saying he didn't believe Muslims were evil because of their faith but, as a minister, he thought it was his "responsibility to speak out against the terrible deeds that are committed as a result of Islamic teaching."

Army Col. Tom Collins said the invitation to Graham was from the Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force, not the Pentagon. The Pentagon chaplain's office, he said, coordinates the event with the private group. The Army said the event will go forward without the participation of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.

CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said his organization "“ an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history "“ hailed the decision "as a victory for common sense and good judgment."

"Promoting one's own religious beliefs is something to be defended and encouraged, but other faiths should not be attacked or misrepresented in the process," Awad said.

CAIR had called on its supporters to petition the Pentagon to rescind the invitation to Graham.

CAIR "“ newly confirmed by the Justice Department as a terrorist co-conspirator "“ is trying to keep its lawsuit alive against two investigators behind the expose "Muslim Mafia", which documents the D.C.-based group's founding and current activity as a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood and its spinoff Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization.
