Handel will apologize IF the Council on American-Islamic Relations:There is a non-sequitur quality to this reply. Handel would seeming just explain that the sketch does not warrant an apology for reasons x, y, and z. Actually, however, this is very clever. If this show-down is going to focus attention on CAIR, Handel seems to be using it to call attention to the usual equivocation that these kinds of questions usully elicit from them. I wonder what would be involved in the demanded denunciation of terror? A list of specific attacks? By the way, I remember that the local representative of CAIR got a very respectful treatment on the John and Ken show, also on KFI. That probably won't happen again. (Hat tip: LGF)
1) Decries all acts of terror (described specifically, not generally)
2) Agrees that Israel is a sovereign nation with the right to defensible borders
3) CAIR has no ties of any sort, financially or otherwise, to any terror orgs or individiuals.
