Executive Director Of Islamic Group Sad More Didn’t Die In Russian Plane Crash

Hussam Ayloush, the executive director of the California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Tweeted on Christmas Day that he was upset more people didn’t die in the Russian plane that crashed into the Black Sea near Sochi.

Ayloush Tweeted: “I’m sad about the crashed Russia military jet. The TU-154 could have carried up to 180 more military personnel instead of just 92.”


He has since deleted the tweet, saying he didn’t know that among the dead were military musicians and a choir on their way to Syria to perform a concert ahead of New Year’s Eve.

The following tweets suggest that had all aboard the plane been full of members of the Russian military, he would have celebrated their deaths because of Putin’s involvement in the war in Syria.


This isn’t the first time Alyoush has grabbed the media’s attention for making controversial and offensive statements.

Last year, Alyoush told CNN that the United States was partially to blame for the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

“Let’s not forget that some of our own foreign policy, as Americans, as the West, have fueled that extremism,” Alyoush said.

Alyoush’s statements should come as no surprise considering the fact that the United Arab Emirates named CAIR as one of the 82 terrorist organizations around the world due to its previous links to the extremist group, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood, Fox News reported in 2014.

The United States Government has been highly criticized for not scrutinizing CAIR and their links to extremist organization as much as the UAE does.

“Federal prosecutors have explicitly named CAIR and MAS (Muslim American Society) as Muslim Brotherhood entities, yet the UAE is expressing more public concern about this than the U.S. does,” Ryan Mauro, a national security analyst for the Clarion Project, told FoxNews. “Whereas they appear in our media and meet with our officials, the UAE views them as extremists unworthy of being treated as representatives of Muslims.”
