CAIR: We Condemn The Terror Attack In Texas, But Pamela Geller Totally Had It Coming

The Council on American Islamic Relations, better known as CAIR, has issued a statement about the terror attack last night in Texas during a Muhammed Cartoon Exhibit. They're also partially blaming the organizers of the event for the violence and are equating them with the terrorists who carried out the attack. (bolding is mine)

"We condemn yesterday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, without reservation.

"We also reiterate our view that violence in response to anti-Islam programs like the one in Garland is more insulting to our faith than any cartoon, however defamatory. Bigoted speech can never be an excuse for violence.

"Muslims in North Texas and across the nation are shocked and saddened by this inexcusable attack and pray for the speedy recovery of the officer injured by the attackers.

"We thank the Garland Police Department for its swift actions to ensure public safety.

"Unfortunately, human history shows us that hatred breeds more hatred and extremism leads to more extremism.

"Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Geert Wilders and the perpetrators of yesterday's attack all seek to provoke a downward spiral of mutual hostility and mistrust in America and around the world.

"People of good will must work together to ensure that extremists of all faiths and backgrounds do not accomplish that malevolent goal.

"We reiterate the American Muslim community's support for freedom of speech - even bigoted speech – and its repudiation of terrorism in any form."
