Racist Radio In Tampa, FloridaTopics: Understanding Islam
Joe Kaufman reminds us at FrontPage magazine that Islamists around the United States are still playing games with the American public. While supporting extremist causes and the hate-filled ideologies of the Muslim Brotherhood - the violent group that spawned Hamas and Al-Qaeda - they have gotten involved, as well, in interfaith activities.
As an example, Kaufman points to Ahmed Bedier, a leader in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that has its roots in Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Bedier's role in the organization is as its Florida Communications Director and as its local Tampa Executive Director. Apart from this, Bedier co-hosts a radio show, True Talk, on Tampa's WMNF. Within both venues, he is able to spread his dual message, one of peace and love and one of vile hate. While he underhandedly exploited the occasion of the death of Dr. King to work in CAIR's pseudo claim of anti-Muslim bigotry, most of what Bedier said was inoffensive and harmless. But no matter the kind words, on this same radio show, another message was being sent -- that of undeniable hatred.
