Hamas-Linked CAIR’s Nihad Awad: “Israel Is The Biggest Threat To World Peace And Security”
Sound familiar? When the Muslim nations surrounding Israel gather together against Jerusalem in excited anticipation of Islam’s “prophesied” destruction of the Jewish State of Israel, they will all be saying “Peace and Security.” And they’ll be right. There will be peace and security indeed, but it’ll be God’s version of peace and security, not theirs …
Joel 3:11-12, 14, “Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations, And gather yourselves there. Bring down, O LORD, Your mighty ones. Let the nations be aroused And come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations… Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near …”
1 Thessalonians 5:2-3, “For you yourselves know very well that the Day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. When they say, ‘Peace and security,’ then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains come on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”
Hadith, Sahih Muslim, 41:6985, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Bigger than the Islamic State. Bigger than Boko Haram. Bigger than al-Qaeda. Bigger than al-Shabaab. Bigger, of course, than Hamas and Hizballah and Islamic Jihad. Bigger than the genocidal anti-Semites of the Iranian mullahcracy. As far as the Islamic supremacist Nihad Awad of Hamas-linked CAIR is concerned, none of those jihadis are as big a threat to world peace and security than a nation of Jews who refuse to submit.
‘Hey, Nihad, Look up. Look Down.,’ IPT News, August 22, 2014:
Vladimir Putin’s Russian forces remain poised for a possible takeover of neighboring Ukraine. Nuclear-armed North Korea is ruled by an unstable, nihilistic dictator who constantly makes new threatsagainst American allies and the United States itself (along with some of its filmmakers). The Islamic State terrorist group slaughters as many people who cross its path and poses a credible threat of genocide against the ancient Yazidi people in Iraq.
But according to Nihad Awad, head of the supposedly mainstream Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), those threats to global peace pale in comparison with the real threat to world peace and security: Israel.
What’s especially bizarre is that Awad’s assessment on Twitter is bracketed by tweets critical of ISIS’ brutality, which were posted after ISIS released video showing the vicious killing of journalist James Wright Foley.
Awad writes that Israel “targets civilians.” This is demonstrably false, given the warning calls and leaflets Israel’s military drops before targeting terrorists who do target civilians with the rocket fire, or the leaders of terrorist groups like Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad who sanction those attacks.
This is no mis-statement by Awad or an aberration. In July, he called for, “People of conscience: Declare Israel as a terrorist state for the war crimes it has been committing against civilians.”
The only terrorist entities are in Gaza, where Hamas diverted tens of millions of dollars that could have helped build an infrastructure and an economy to better the lives of Palestinians and instead used the money to stockpile weapons and build tunnels in hopes of committing mass slaughter of Israeli civilians.
We’ve repeatedly shown how CAIR was born out of a Hamas-support network in America; how its officials – Awad included – never utter a critical word about Hamas; and how they leap into action as “defenders of the Palestinian cause” when Hamas initiates violence.
Now Awad, who has led CAIR for its entire 20 year history, further shows how his Hamas sympathies skew his world view. No matter how much harm Hamas brings to Palestinians in Gaza, it is never enough to draw his scorn.
Why do people take this guy and his organization seriously?
