Armstrong Williams, an advisor to Ben Carson’s campaign, blasted the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) insisting, “We are no longer interested in the rhetoric of CAIR and what they say.” (RELATED: ‘Trashing The Constitution’ — Muslim CNN Guest Calls On Carson To Withdraw)
Williams, appearing on CNN’s “At This Hour” Monday, told Kate Bolduan that Muslims around to world have to “change their action” and stop “treating women like animals, disregarding life, beheading and killing homosexuals because of their choice” to become “worthy of your [Carson and Williams’s] trust.” (RELATED: Carson: Islam Is Not Consistent With The Constitution)
Kate Bolduan: Do you think there’s anything that Dr. Carson or you could hear from CAIR or could learn or study in the Koran that would change your views?
Armstrong Williams: We are no longer interested in the rhetoric of CAIR and what they say. When they change their actions and their behavior, what has going on in this world, in ISIS, beheading people, treating women like animals, disregarding life, beheading and killing homosexuals because of their choice. I mean, are you kidding me? Change your action, show us that we’re worthy of your trust. Show us this by your action and what you teach your children and how you respect life and how you respect individual freedom. There is not one Christian church or Jewish synagogue, that could be not in the Middle East but yet they come to our country and build them. Saudi Arabia who has not allowed one refugee wants to build 200 mosques in Europe. Are you can kidding me?
CAIR was listed by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme that provided funding to the terror group Hamas.
