Let me introduce you to the people who HATE you.
The power structure behind the “Islamic Plague.”
You know the organization. Now meet the players.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is undoubtedly the largest, most well-funded and politically adept Muslim organizations in the United States.
They are the proverbial “head of the snake” we call Islam and a majority stakeholder in the spread of this hateful philosophy. Most U.S. citizens who are concerned with the impact of Islam on the American value system have heard of CAIR. But how many of you know the mission behind the name?
Let me introduce you to the people that hate you.
CAIR’s public face, not unlike the smiling faces of its Executive Staff pictured in this article, is charming and harmless. Its mission statement reads like a utopian call for kumbaya: “to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding”.
I must be a bigotted, intolerant racist to have a problem with CAIR, right? Wrong.
The only intolerance I suffer is that which stems from coordinated campaigns of deceipt, and the unchecked benefit afforded to such orgnizations from an apathetic public that doesn’t know any better. The “uniformed public” issue ends now, with this article.
CAIR was founded in June 1994 by three officers of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP)—Omar Ahmad (IAP President; became CAIR President), Nihad Awad (IAP PR Director; became CAIR Secretary & Treasurer), and Rafeeq Jaber (IAP Chicago Chapter President; became CAIR Vice President). Ibrahim Hooper, who assisted Awad’s media efforts, became CAIR’s communications director. Two of these “civil rights advocates” can be seen in the pictures of CAIR’s Executive Staff I provided with this writing.
Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP) was an Islamist organization that raised money in the United States for Hamas. It described itself as “a not-for-profit, public-awareness, educational, political, social, and civic, national grassroots organization dedicated to advancing a just, comprehensive, and eternal solution to the cause of Palestine and suffrages of the Palestinians.”
In December 2004, a federal judge in Chicago ruled that the IAP (along with the Holy Land Foundation) was liable for a $156 million dollar lawsuit for aiding and abetting the terror group Hamas in the death of 17-year-old David Boim, an American citizen. The suit was eventually overturned, but the stain persisted, and the ties to Hamas were never broken.
Senator Charles Schumer (D-New York) describes CAIR as an organization “which we know has ties to terrorism.” Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) observes that CAIR is “unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with groups that are suspect.” Steven Pomerantz, the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, notes that “CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.” The family of John P. O’Neill, Sr., the former FBI counterterrorism chief who perished at the World Trade Center, named CAIR in a lawsuit as having “been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism” responsible for the 9/11 atrocities. Counterterrorism expert Steven Emerson calls it “a radical fundamentalist front group for Hamas.”
So where is the Department of Homeland Security, the agency sworn to protect American citizens on US soil? Where is the US Congress, who has within its power the ability to shut this terrorist front organization down any time it wishes? They’re running scared, and worried about being labeled intolerant, bigotted racists. No surprise there.
But where is the American public … those self-proclaimed patriots who stood against the likes of the KKK, the American Nazi Party and Communist Neo-Liberals? They’re running scared also. Now THAT’S a surprise. We’re better than that. History proves it.
One of the most telling issues with CAIR is the fact that at least five of its employees and board members have been arrested, convicted, deported, or otherwise linked to terrorism-related charges and activities since 2001. It could be a coincidence, of course, but it’s doubtful.
Rabih Haddad, a CAIR fundraiser, was arrested in December 2001 on terrorism-related charges and deported from the United States due to his subsequent work as executive director of the Global Relief Foundation, a charity he cofounded which was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department in October 2002 for financing Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, an American convert to Islam, served as CAIR’s communications specialist and civil rights coordinator ; today he sits in jail on terrorism-related charges stemming from an arrest in 2003.
Ghassan Elashi, the founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, was convicted in July 2004, with his four brothers, of having illegally shipped computers from their Dallas-area business, InfoCom Corporation, to two designated state-sponsors of terrorism, Libya and Syria. In April 2005 he was convicted again for knowingly doing business with Mousa Abu Marzook, a senior Hamas leader, whom the U.S. State Department had in 1995 declared a “specially designated terrorist.”
In 2008 Muthanna Al-Hanooti, the former head of CAIR’s Michigan office, was charged with conspiring to work for a foreign government and with making false statements to the FBI. He would travel to Iraq and meet with conspirators of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, and was rewarded with 2 million barrels of oil for his work.
CAIR, by the way, is the same organization orchestrating and funding the Muslim Student Associations that are infesting our college campuses, and creating the next generation of activists (terrorists) who seek to undermine and undo our American way of life. If you have children who are attending a college or university in the United States, they have undoubtedly come into contact with these radical MSA’s.
So the challenge I present to YOU, my fellow partiot, is simple.
If a convicted child molester moved into your neighborhood, you would stop at nothing to rid yourself of the menace. If a XXX video porn store wanted to open next to your church or synagogue, you’d stop at nothing to fight it. If the American Nazi Party wanted to speak at your child’s high school graduation ceremony, you’d go ballistic.
Where are you regarding CAIR – an extremist Islamic organization with proven ties to terrorist who want to kill you — and the Muslim Student Associations? What are you willing to do to stop this threat to your very existence?
Child molesters, drug labs and the Nazi party are bad; this is worse. It’s time for you to get involved, and start backing those groups that are fighting the spread of the “Islamic Plague” on YOUR behalf. Information is the first step. Action is the next.
