CAIR Offers Guide To America’s Civil Rights For Muslims Visiting Repressive Foreign Hellhole

From The Daily Caller:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is encouraging American Muslims to learn all about America’s many civil rights and to download its official civil rights app if they plan to travel to the autocratic hellhole of Saudi Arabia to take part in Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. 
American Muslims can use the app to report problems they may encounter during trips to Saudi Arabia and back to the United States, according to a CAIR press release sent to The Daily Caller. 
CAIR is also offering an instructive pocket guide entitled “Your Rights and Responsibilities as an American Muslim.” 
“As an airline passenger, you are entitled to courteous, respectful and non-stigmatizing treatment by airline and security personnel,” the guide states. “It is illegal for law enforcement officials to perform any stops, searches, detentions, or removals based solely on your race, religion, national origin, sex, or ethnicity.” 
Upon arriving in Saudi Arabia for Hajj, American Muslims will enjoy virtually none of the vast multitude of civil rights from which they benefit in the United States. 
Freedom House, a nonpartisan organization which examines the political freedom and human rights around the world, gives the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a miserable score of 7 out of 60 for civil liberties and describes the desert nation as “not free.” 
“Saudi Arabia restricts almost all political rights and civil liberties through a combination of oppressive laws and the use of force,” Freedom House explains. 
“Ruling elites rely on extensive surveillance, the criminalization of dissent, appeals to sectarianism and public spending supported by oil revenues to maintain power.”
