CAIR Says Revolution Muslim A 'Setup' To Smear MuslimsI couldn't help but notice that the Council on American-Islamic Relations had been strangely silent on the South Park-Revolution Muslim dustup (link, link). Of course, CAIR was pretty busy this week emailing alerts about right-wing extremism and Franklin Graham (who hasn't threatened to kill anyone recently), so perhaps they missed the saturation coverage of RevMuslim's threats on most of the major news networks.
Well, they caught up today, and the response is an instant classic:
Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, characterized Revolution Muslim as a loosely-organized group with such outrageous beliefs he believes it may be a "setup" to smear Islam.

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
