The Iranian government is pursuing nuclear weapons, helping Syria brutally suppress anti-government uprisings and is "the most active" sponsor of terrorist groups throughout the world. And, of course, it considers the United States to be the Great Satan and a bitter enemy.
Yet American Islamists seem to have no hesitancy taking to Iran's state-sponsored English-language media arm to bash America as inherently hostile toward Muslims. The latest to do so is Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) national spokesman Ibrahim Hooper, who appeared June 4 to argue anti-Muslim sentiment is raging in America.
"It's really a disturbing situation where, primarily right-wing extremists are exploiting and promoting anti-Muslim sentiment for their own political gain," Hooper said. "And I think we're going to see more and more of it leading up to the 2012 elections."
