From Brigitte Gabriel's ACT for America....
Our email yesterday focused on how sharia law’s prohibition against any critique or criticism of Islam or Mohammed is negatively impacting our nation’s ability to publicly discuss and debate the issue of radical Islam.
Almost as if on cue, National Public Radio (NPR) sacked commentator Juan Williams because of remarks he made on The O’Reilly Factor Monday.
This goes beyond political correctness. This is a media company, partially financed with our tax dollars, in effect doing the bidding of sharia law. American newspapers that refused to publish the satirical Mohammed cartoons did the same thing.
With these actions they betrayed the first amendment while capitulating to the demands of sharia law.
Particularly disturbing is that there is the appearance that NPR was kowtowing to CAIR, the Council-on American Islamic Relations, which quickly organized a public relations effort demanding NPR “address” Juan Williams’ remarks. (To see the CAIR media release, click here.)
CAIR is the organization whose co-founder, Omar Ahmad, is on record declaring “the Qur’an should be the highest authority in America,” and whose chief spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper, has said he would like the government of America to be Islamic sometime in the future.
We urge you to contact NPR and express your outrage, in a firm but civil tone, at this politically correct assault on freedom of speech.

Let NPR know the American people will not sit idly by while a taxpayer-funded media company runs roughshod over the First Amendment.
