Best Buy supporting Hamas?

Best Buy Affirms Support for Hamas front group

Yesterday’s Islamist Watch article (below) documenting Best Buy’s financial support for the Hamas-linked Islamist group CAIR continues to make waves. The article has been re-posted across the internet and over 1,650 people have “liked” it on Facebook.
In response to a crush of emails and a deluge of criticism on their own Facebook page, Best Buy issued the following Facebook statement:
Best Buy’s customers and employees around the world represent a variety of faiths and denominations. We respect that diversity, and choose to engage with our customers, employees and communities in ways that reflect their traditions and maintain good relationships for Best Buy.
They “respect that diversity” by financing a group tied to Hamas and pledged to turning America into a Sharia-compliant, Islamic state? They choose to “engage” their customers in ways that reflect “their traditions?” What traditions? Subverting democracy, women’s rights and religious pluralism? Launching rockets into Israel? Honor killings of young women?
Islamist Watch has uncovered internal Best Buy email addresses for two important executives:
Susan Busch, Director of Public Relations: Lisa Hawks, Deputy Director of Public Relations:
Keep the pressure on … Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter … Stay tuned
Thanks to Creeping Sharia readers here and on Twitter – most read story last week – for getting this out there. Share with your friends and family, neighbors, and elected officials. If you don’t speak now your kids will wonder why you didn’t fight when you had the chance.
Here are the details on CAIR: (below fold)
