"Bedier declined to answer questions about his testimony, saying he wanted to check with the national headquarters of CAIR about what he was allowed to say."
-- from this news article
And in order to decide what to tell Bedier how much of the truth he can avoid telling, and exactly how, CAIR will no doubt wish to consult the Good Books, including that book of Hadith in which Muhammad tells Muslims, as part of his spiritual testament, that "war is deception."
Robert Spencer didn't make that up. Ayaan Hirsi Ali didn't imagine it. Wafa Sultan didn't pull that out of thin air. Ibn Warraq and Ali Sina were not weaving tales to scare us. Muhammad, uswa hasana, al-insan al-kamil, is the one who said, according to that most authoritative of all the muhaddithin, al-Bukhari, that "war is deception."
Bedier calls CAIR. And CAIR officials whisper together, and consult with their lawyers, what oh what should we have him say what oh what might the Feds already know, what oh what kind of trouble can he get into? Because we are all here engaged in a sacred mission, the mission to remove all obstacles to the spread of Islam in America, no matter what obstacles those Infidels and their ridiculous nation-state attempt to maintain. Steady, relentless pressure we will put, doing this and saying that, or saying this and doing that, and undercutting at every turn, or trying to, and never being discouraged, whatever road-blocks or obstacles their stupid Infidel legal and political institutions may present. We are on a higher mission than any Infidel nation-state or its obstinate inhabitants could possibly understand.
Now we, we those obstinate Infidels, with our stupid legal and political institutions, now have clearly on record -- the statement of Ahmad Bedier himself -- that he, Ahmad Bedier, will be calling the home office of CAIR, right smack in Washington, to find out "about what he was allowed to say."
"What he was allowed to say."
We already know what he is not merely allowed, but told to think:
"War is deception."
