Athlete’s RELIGION Comments Lead To Outrage?

( – A Penn State wrestler has been criticized for referring to the founder of the Islamic faith as a “false prophet.” Aaron Brooks was speaking after his victory over Northern Iowa’s Parker Keckeisen on March 18th.

The wrestling champion has a history of attributing his success to his religious faith and said, “It’s everything. Christ’s resurrection is everything. Not just his life, his death and resurrection. You can only get that through Him. The Holy Spirit only through Him. No false prophets, no Muhammad, or no anyone else. Only Jesus Christ himself.”

Almost immediately, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) took to Twitter to call upon Brooks (whom they misnamed “Mr. Blake”) to “meet with his Muslim classmates at #PennState to build bridges.” The group also accused him of making a “disparaging remark” about Mohammed. A slew of social media criticisms followed. There was much support in the midst of the criticism, with some tweeters calling out CAIR as a supporter of terror groups. One person wrote, “Says the group that not only supports but funds terror groups like Hamas which says “death to unbelievers” every day of the week.”

CAIR is the largest Muslim advocacy group in the United States and still enjoys support from many left-wing activists and commentators. It lost some of its shine back in 2015 however when the FBI severed all ties after the group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror funding trial.

The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development was found guilty of funneling more than $12 million to Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization. Hamas was designated a terror group in 1995 and financial contributions to it became a criminal offense. 

In 2009, Paul David Gaubatz published details about the time he spent working undercover at CAIR. He wrote that the organization was fiercely anti-American and was sympathetic to jihadi ideals.

Gaubatz said there is an expressed intent within the institution to destroy the United States from within.
