UNREAL. CAIR Berates Donald Trump for Promising to Close Radical Mosques

In an interview with Fox Business Channel, businessman Donald Trump said he would “absolutely” revoke passports and close radical mosques in order to fight ISIS.

CAIR condemned Trump’s remarks.

The Clarion Project reported:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that is  banned in the United Arab Emirates as a terrorist group, is condemningRepublican presidential candidate Donald Trump for supporting the closing of extremist mosques that are “loaded for bear.”

Trump’s comment came when asked about a British plan to shut down mosques that preach extremism. He initially said it’s a “great idea.” When asked about such a policy’s compatibility with religious freedom, Trump replied, “Well, I don’t know. It depends on if the mosque is, you know, loaded for bear, I don’t know. You’re going to have to certainly look at it.”

“Donald Trump’s apparent willingness to close down American mosques that he deems ‘extreme’ is totally incompatible with the Constitution and our nation’s cherished principle of religious freedom,” said CAIR’s Government Affairs Department Manager Robert McCaw. “The government should not be in the business of deciding what is acceptable free speech or religious belief. Donald Trump’s off-the-cuff remarks are both un-American, and un-presidential.”
