Owner of minor league baseball teams refuses to meet with Hamas-linked CAIR for being chairman of anti-terror group

Note the AP’s description of Hamas-linked CAIR as “a Muslim civil rights group.” It doesn’t see fit to inform its readers that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.

Note also that it cites the multiply-discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, the wealthy Leftist propaganda organization that defames and attempts to destroy groups that dissent from the Leftist agenda by classifying them as “hate groups,” but doesn’t say a word about the SPLC’s vicious bias.

And finally, note that Prentice was compelled to deny he was a “racist” for being chairman of the Center for Security Policy, which monitors and opposes jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others. What race is Sharia? What race is jihad terror? Is AP just stupid, or is it evil, or both?

The owner of two minor league baseball teams is refusing to meet with a Muslim civil rights group, accusing it of supporting terrorists.

The Connecticut chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations sought a meeting with E. Miles Prentice, owner of the Single-A Connecticut Tigers and co-owner of the Double-A Midland (Texas) RockHounds.

CAIR is concerned that Prentice is chairman of the Center for Security Policy, an organization identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim hate group.

Prentice said Thursday he is not a racist. He said he considers the SPLC “radical leftists” and has no plans to meet with CAIR.

“My colleagues and I at the Center for Security Policy are more than willing to debate the content of our research and advocacy on behalf of freedom and the practice of peace through strength with Americans of differing views, but who are also committed to freedom and our Constitution,” he said in a statement. “We see no utility, however, to meeting with, or otherwise legitimating, those who seek to silence us or are associated with terrorist organizations like Hamas.”…
