About Those "Peace Doves" Muslims Plan to Release

By John Lillpop

In a heartwarming and touching human interest story, we have been advised that American Muslim groups will hold a symbolic release of "peace doves" at a Mosque in Washington, D.C., to welcome the inauguration of Barack Obama.

From the Student Operated Press, this report, in part (Reference 1):

"American Muslim groups will welcome next week`s inauguration of President Barack Obama with a symbolic release of "peace doves" on Monday at a mosque in the nation`s capital followed by an open house at the Capitol Hill headquarters of the Council on Islamic American Relations (CAIR) onInauguration Day.

"As part of our nation`s rich religious heritage, American Muslims are looking forward to celebrating the inauguration of President Obama and are hopeful that his presidency will bring peace, prosperity and reconciliation in America and worldwide," said CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad.

"On Monday, January 19, the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections (AMT), a coalition of 12 major Islamic organizations, will release 44 doves, one for eachAmerican president. The dove release is intended to symbolize the American Muslim community`s desire for amore peaceful world and to highlight the key role a president plays in achieving peace based on justice and freedom."

While this announcement from CAIR projects a "feel good" quality and inspires hope, Americans, especially Jews, near Jews, and people who look like Jews and near Jews, are cautioned to remain extremely skeptical about Muslims and their apparent genetic predisposition for terrorism and bloodshed.

For example, according to unconfirmed trash talk emanating from alleys near my favorite tavern, that "Miracle in the Hudson River" involving a US Airways Airbus and several geese was not an accident.

In fact, we have learned that the entire incident involving Flight 1549 was a test run staged by CAIR to fine tune their kamikaze geese for the " big doings" at the Inaugural on January 20.

No further details concerning "big doings" were immediately available, but sources indicate that prudent attendees should stay as far away as possible from Senators Diane Feinstein,Chuck Schumer, and Supreme Court Associate Ginsburg, for obvious reasons.
