The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has big concerns about the Emerald Coast Tea Party Patriots inviting Brigitte Gabriel, the head of the anti-Islam hate group "ACT! for America," to be their keynote speaker at its "U.S. Constitution Freedom Rally" on August 21 in Fort Walton Beach, Fla.

CAIR is asking political candidates scheduled to be at the event, such as Marco Rubio, to cancel their appearances unless Gabriel is dropped as a speaker.

In 2007, Gabriel gave a speech and said "between Israel and the Arab world is the difference between civilization and barbarism and also said of the "Arabic world," that they "have no soul."

This is virtually the exact same racial theory that that was used by England in the 17th century when it built a huge slave trade in North America, used by American racists to and through the Civil War, and led to the horrors of the Holocaust.

Suggesting any peoples have "no soul" or are in some way less than human is to set up a justification for things like the talk-radio-fueled mass murder of Tutsis by Hutus in Rwanda, or the murder of Native Americans by us for centuries.
