Last week Nihad Awad, CAIR’s National Executive Director issued a release demanding that President-elect, Donald J. Trump drop Reverend Franklin Graham from inauguration prayers.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on President-elect Donald Trump to drop notorious Islamophobe Rev. Franklin Graham from the list of those invited to pray at the presidential inauguration.
‘If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not to create divisions between faiths,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Rev. Graham’s ill-informed and extremist views are incompatible with the Constitution and with American values of religious liberty and inclusion….’
Taqiyya. Sharia law is by no means compatible with the U. S, Constitution or American values.
NPR wrote an article attempting to take a swipe at those Trump invited to pray at the inauguration by pointing out their financial wealth. So very Progressive. Moving on.
Awad decries Reverend Graham’s invitation to pray at the inauguration but the presence of a Graham praying at a presidential inauguration has been the order of business for decades. Reverend s Graham’s father, Reverend Bill Graham has prayed at several presidential inaugurations.
… By appearing at Trump’s swearing-in, Franklin Graham will be following family tradition: His 98-year-old father, Billy, prayed at the inauguration of several presidents, from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton, and Franklin prayed at the inauguration of George W. Bush in 2001.
His inclusion as a prayer leader may also signal Trump’s comfort with Graham’s political positions. During his campaign, Trump focused a lot of attention on the threat from “radical Islam,” a theme Franklin Graham also has emphasized….
It is a family tradition and even if it weren’t, Trump and Graham are playing for the same team (no pun intended).
Instead, the president-elect will sign legislation designating the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) terrorist organizations.
While stealth jihad has been in the White House and federal agencies under Barack Obama, Americans are looking forward to passage of the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act introduced by Senator Ted Cruz.

As the name implies, the purpose of the bill is to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. As reported by Western Journalism, Trump will sign the legislation into law.
Two bills were also introduced in Congress, i.e., Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) introduced The IRGC Terrorist Designation Act and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) introduced the companion bill the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, which urges the State Department to designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organizations.
