Florida Family Association encourages you to remember Best Buy’s financial support for CAIR when shopping for Christmas and Hanukah gifts.
Best Buy was listed as a “Platinum Sponsor” at the Fifth Annual banquet for the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) according to Creepingsharia.com. The CAIR-Minnesota Fifth Annual banquet was held on February 11, 2012 from 6 to 9 pm at the Crowne Plaza in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Best Buy’s corporate headquarters is located in Minnesota.
This is not the first time that Best Buy has shown their support for the Islamist political agenda. Jihadwatch.org posted the following photo and November 24, 2009 article titled “Best Buy wishes you a Happy Eid al-Adha.”
One of CAIR’s top agenda items is to make sure that Sharia law is not banned in America. CAIR’s March 1, 2012 press release stated they are opposing legislation in twenty states which seeks to ban courts from recognizing Sharia law. Sharia law is hostile to many American policies which protect life and human rights. Sharia law advocates physical acts of submission toward women (wives, daughters, sisters), polygamy, female body mutilation, pedophilia, marital rape, honor killing and the imprisonment and/or execution of blasphemers and infidels especially Christians and Jews.
News9.com reports “Former CIA Director James Woolsey told a group in Oklahoma City that CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is an extremist Muslim group with ties to terrorists. Woolsey said CAIR, once called “The Islamic Organization of Palestine”, is named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the federal case U.S. vs. the Holy Land Foundation which “is the biggest terrorist financing case of all time.”
From the then Florida CAIR director Ahmed Bedier defending convicted terrorist fundraiser Sami Al-Arian and convicted bomb maker Ahmed Mohamed to Hassan Shibly defending Islamic cleric Khalid Yasin CAIR’s leaders routinely express their strong support for extremists who threaten our way of life.
So Best Buy is taking part of the money you the consumer spends at their stores and is giving it to CAIR whose agenda includes protecting Sharia law in America and defending terrorists throughout the world.
Best Buy has declined to publicly state that they have ruled out future support for CAIR.
“Well I for one have ruled out spending one more dime at Best Buy until they publicly state they have ruled out future support for CAIR.” Notes David Caton, Florida Family Association Executive Director.
The values we cherish cannot afford to allow Best Buy’s support for CAIR to be forgotten especially since the company is unapologetic about benefiting an organization which fights for Sharia law in America.
Florida Family Association is making Best Buy’s support for CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) a top, long term issue. The Best Buy issue will stay at the top of the home page and Florida Family Association will issue more call to action email alerts especially during Christmas and Hanukkah gift-buying season.
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to the Best Buy CEO and six other officials objecting to their company’s support for CAIR.
Call to Action has been cancelled.
