Executive Director for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Los Angeles, Hussam Ayloush appeared on a KTLA morning newscast to talk about the fighting between Israel and Hamas. Guess whose side he’s on.
Conspicuously absent from Ayloush as he defended Hamas and portrayed himself as a champion of all human life, was the fact that Hamas seeks to exterminate all Jewish human life; it’s in their charter. He also says Israel “continues to mistreat the Palestinians”. He then completely unmasks himself by saying Israel “escalated” the conflict by assassinating the Hamas military commander. Apparently, Ayloush doesn’t think the daily barrage of rockets into Israeli civilian neighborhoods constitutes “escalation”.
As further evidence of Ayloush’s bias, consider that in 2007, he referred to Salam Al-Marayati – the Executive Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), who on the day of the 9/11/01 attacks implied that Israel may have been responsible – as:
“…one of the major mainstream American Muslim leaders.”
Now, watch Ayloush on KTLA shortly after it was learned that there would be a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Note how pleased Ayloush is here. His apparent relief should be rightfully interpreted as Hamas getting their butts kicked and a cease-fire is in their best interest:
