[quote=Ambarsaria;143546]spnadmin ji I profess not to understand USA. The following is very disturbing, http://www.anti-cair-net.org/
Whenever you read anything on the Internet three things need to happen. 1) Awareness of your own personal biases - to which you are entitled - but which may thrust you into a situation where you choose to read material that you prefer to agree with. 2) Awareness of the biases of the web site. Now who is this LA Sherriff Leroy Baca who has such intense concerns about CAIR. He doesn't like CAIR. Does he like Sikhs? 3) Awareness of other resources on the Internet that challenge your biases and perhaps add to awareness.
CAIR has collaborated in court and in advocacy with Sikh Civil Rights Organizations in the US, including SALDEF and Sikh Coalition over the years. CAIR and SALDEF together have been successful in overturning state laws in federal court. So if we don't like CAIR, maybe we should not like Sikhs who like CAIR either.
To understand the US diaspora a little better: Sikhs in the US tend to work behind the scenes more than in the media, forming coalitions with other groups, and plying intelligent use of legal resources and expertise to make progress. Media appearances and press releases are always used strategically to advance toward a goal. The current progress made by SFJ against Kamal Nath in the US federal court took all by surprise when it broke last year, and no one thought SFJ would stay in the game. They did.
My father used to say something like this too, but in Italian
You dip your arm in Mustard Oil (Saron da Tael) and then dip it in a sack of sesame seed. Count the number of sesame seed that stick to your arm. If a Muslim swears to something as many times, don't believe him.
Really it is necessary to be discerning, or we have not a a chance in hell of overcoming racial and religious hatred. Dr. Martin Luther King:" If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem. "
