CAIR: Fla. House GOP Leader Linked to Anti-Islam Hate Fest
Rep. Hasner asked to disassociate himself from 'Islamophobes and Muslim-bashers'
WASHINGTON, April 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the leader of that state's House Republicans to disassociate himself from an upcoming anti-Islam conference backed by a "motley collection of Islamophobes and Muslim-bashers."
CAIR said Rep. Adam Hasner is on the "host committee" for the April 27 conference in Delray Beach, Fla., featuring Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders. Wilders was recently denied entry to Britain because of his extreme anti-Muslim views, including urging that the Quran, Islam's revealed text, be banned.
Cair is not happy with Fitna, 15-minute film created by Wilders' that shows how verses from the Qur'an are being used today to incite modern Muslims to behave violently and anti-democratically based. Strangely the video is called anti-Muslim even though it all comes from the Qur'an. See the video below:

The Terrorist Group is also protesting the appearance ofJoe Kaufman, who they call a Florida anti-Muslim extremist with a long history of seeking to marginalize and disenfranchise the American Muslim community and its institutions (CAIR Speak for exposing the truth).
CAIR blasts Frank Gaffney for his efforts to expose Sharia Finance, claimed that the use of Islamic finance in America is a form of treason. "[I]t is advancing a criminal conspiracy whose purpose is the violent overthrow of the United States Constitution and government in favor of Islamic rule," wrote Gaffney. (Washington Times, 9/16/08)
Another event sponsor, Pamela Geller, operates one of the Internet's most vicious anti-Islam sites. Her blog features categories such as "Advancing Islamic Lies," "Islam 2008: Religion of Barbarism" and "Slavery: An Arab custom." Geller has even been criticized by other Islamophobes for her extremism and for supporting far-right groups in Europe....
Robert Spencer, who has also been criticized for the extremism exhibited on his anti-Muslim blog, is listed as a conference "coalition partner." Spencer was recently involved in a controversy over his joining a Facebook group advocating genocide of Muslims in Turkey.
The founder of another conference sponsoring group, Act! for America's Brigitte Gabriel, told the Australian Jewish News: "Every practicing Muslim is a radical Muslim." She also claimed that "Islamo-fascism is a politically-correct word...it's the vehicle for Islam...Islam is the problem."
When asked whether Americans should "resist Muslims who want to seek political office in this nation," Gabriel said: "Absolutely. If a Muslim who has -- who is -- a practicing Muslim who believes the word of the Koran to be the word of Allah, who abides by Islam, who goes to mosque and prays every Friday, who prays five times a day -- this practicing Muslim, who believes in the teachings of the Koran, cannot be a loyal citizen to the United States of America."
"If Representative Hasner truly wishes to represent Florida's diverse religious and ethnic population, he should immediately disassociate himself and the state legislature from this motley collection of Islamophobes and Muslim-bashers," said CAIR-South Florida Executive Director Altaf Ali.

Maybe Hasner doesn't want to represent the part of the diverse religious community that funds Hamas, like CAIR.
