This is a revolting development! I (and others) had predicted that eventually Islamic Radicals would join the Occupy protests. It is revolting especially in light of the fact that these protests originated in Egypt and other middle eastern countries, and we saw what happened in Egypt. It is now under control of the Muslim Brotherhood, is adopting Sharia law, and is part of a 'unification' (deceptively named 'Arab Spring' by it's organizers) in the Middle East. The rebellion in Libya was also part of the unification, and was aided by groups like Code Pink. Libyan rebel leadership has already stated that they will seek to place Libya under Sharia law. Now groups like Code Pink, International Socialist Organization, Uncut, and scores of others have moved operations and focus on the Occupy movement. They've all been keeping a low profile for the purpose of masking the true intentions of the movement, as discussed in a previous post: Emails Reveal Trojan Horse Strategy to Hide Socialist, Anarchist Goals of #OWS Mob

Two women representing the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), spoke to MRCTV Friday morning at the Occupy Wall Street rally in Zuccotti Park, stating they were there to stand in solidarity with the protesters and because “Islam stands for social justice, first and foremost.” Last week The Blaze reported that CAIR hosted a traditional Muslim “Jummah” prayer service at Occupy Wall Street on Friday.
When asked if CAIR condemned the repeated displays of anti-Semitism occurring across the Occupy movements, the woman, who identified herself as a non-Muslim CAIR staff member, said “absolutely,“ stating that Islam embraces ”all” religions. She then compared the plight of Muslims and Jews, claiming the two groups share similar struggles.
The CAIR employee also singled out the NYPD for condemnation over claims the department is investigating certain Muslim populations in the New York area:
