This dude’s slip is showing…
An appearance…on Alan Colmes’ radio show went from bad to barely better for a spokesman with the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Hassan Shibly, executive director of the Florida CAIR branch at Tampa, made an earnest attempt to separate Islamic fanatics responsible for last week’s carnage in Paris from genuine Muslims, despite a revealing gaffe right out of the gate.
Shibly was following the predictable left-wing script in calling for Americans to remain “united” in fighting jihadists when he was forced to correct himself–
COLMES (after introducing Shibly as representing the “Center for” American-Islamic Relations): It saddens me, the number of incidents we’ve seen over the last week since the Paris attacks, of bigotry toward Muslims in the United States. You’ve got to be really dumbfounded by this.
SHIBLY: It’s been horrific. I mean, my office alone has been dealing with about half a dozen hate crimes….
And it really brought out of the woodworks a lot of xenophobia, a lot of Islamophobia, that’s really serving to undermine our nation. What hurts me as an American Muslim is we really just cannot allow our enemies abroad to divide us here at home ’cause if we do we let the terrorists win. We have to stand united against Americans, uh, uh, sorry, we have to stand united as Americans against our common enemy which is terrorist, violence, fear and hate.
