In yet another blow to the contrived "moderate" image of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the leader of its Michigan chapter expressed his unhappiness with Independence Day and marked the holiday with anti-American statements. This follows CAIR officials' questioning of whether to honor fallen U.S. soldiers on Memorial Day. The remarks were swiftly condemned by Muslims appreciative of the U.S. military.
The comments about Independence Day were made by Dawud Walid, executive director of CAIR-Michigan. He has a history of anti-Americanism, vilifying the U.S. government and support for the Muslim Brotherhood.
