My Jihad Is. . .

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has an ongoing advertising campaign focused on the definition of jihad. On example: My jihad is to stay fit despite my busy schedule. What’s yours? Good question. My jihad is not to be complacent and fooled by platitudes and slick marketing. But to look at the facts and watch the actions of those who espouse a particular ideology. Of course, this blogpost may have been highjacked. I’ve heard that is a terrible problem plaguing bloggers these days. . .

CAIR, Council on American Islamic Relations, helps Ali Ahmed

Certain names pose problems to fliers. Like Ali Ahmed. A Somali who recently tried to fly into the US, but found himself on the no-no list:

A U.S. citizen of Somali descent who has been stranded in Bahrain for two weeks after being told his name appears on the U.S. government’s no-fly list said Tuesday that he does not understand why he has been tagged as a suspected terrorist and is talking to U.S. lawyers.

The San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, held a press conference Tuesday to draw attention to the case of 20-year-old Ali Ahmed, who was denied entry into Kenya two weeks ago and then flown to Bahrain.

Thanks be to all that is good. CAIR is involved. Those noted patriots will help out.
