CAIR operative makes scurrilous accusation against Irving
"He who speaks truth declares righteousness,
But a false witness, deceit."
[Author's Note: Full Video here.]
Irving City Hall -- Recently, theBlaze reported on a Sharia court operating in Irving, TX. For obvious reasons, the Irving City Council subsequently passed a resolution in support of the American Laws for American Courts bill currently stalled in the Texas House. Last night, the Irving City Council heard a second round of public testimony on the resolution.
For the most part, the event went as smoothly as anything this controversial could. While the local CBS affiliate gave obnoxiously sycophantic coverage to one disruptive gentleman, that man's conduct was the exception rather than the rule. Kudos to Irving Mayor Beth van Duyne for keeping the meeting on-topic and professional.
The most interesting part of the meeting came when a woman named Alia Salem testified:
Something about Ms. Salem's testimony didn't seem right to us. In addition, we were fairly certain we'd previously heard of her. Thus, we ran her name through Google.
Before we even hit enter, this is what the Google search revealed:
Then, for good measure, we clicked through the first link:
Which makes it official: She's with CAIR.
Following Ms. Salem's accusation of "death threats" the Irving Police Chief and Mayor van Duyne responded:
To summarize: An operative with an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Terrorism case in American History failed to identify herself as such. She then made a false accusation in an attempt to elicit sympathy. That's a very interesting vignette into how Islamists operate (especially in places like Texas).
