Rios: 'Quite serious' to label groups 'Islamophobic'

crescent and starA conservative activist says a radical Islamic organization is declaring jihad on more than 70 organizations, effectively proclaiming a "death sentence" on those groups.

The Council on Islamic American Relations (CAIR) has published what it has called "The U.S. Islamophobia Network." Comprising that network are 74 organizations – 33 "Inner Core" groups whose focus is totally on disseminating the truth about Islam; and 41 "Outer Core" groups that have other agendas besides the threat of Islam.

Among the Inner Core groups are such recognizable groups as the Center for Security Policy, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Jihad Watch, and the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The pro-family, Tupelo, Mississippi-based American Family Association is among those on the Outer Core list. Sandy Rios, AFA's director of governmental affairs, says this is serious business.

"One thing needs to be made clear: by identifying any group or persons on the so-called 'Islamophobia' list, that is a declaration of jihad – and it carries a death sentence," she states. "It's quite dangerous, especially in the atmosphere we find ourselves in."

According to Rios, CAIR operatives are well-placed in the Obama administration – beginning with the Justice Department.

Sandy Rios"They [also] are on committees in Homeland Security at the top level," she tells OneNewsNow. "They are advising and have overseen the scrubbing of any mention of Islam or sharia, or any of the practices of Islam that need to be understood by law enforcement – the FBI, Homeland Security, the Pentagon."

Rios, who hosts a weekday call-in program on American Family Radio, says plenty of documentation exists tying CAIR to the Muslim Brotherhood – a group she says has the goal of destroying the United States from within.

Joining AFA on the Outer Core list are such groups as the American Center for Law and Justice, Concerned Women for America, Eagle Forum, and Fox News Channel.
