Secretary of Homeland Security Thanks CAIR

Clarion Project, by Ryan Mauro, July 25, 2017:

The Department of Homeland Security is continuing to use the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as an outreach partner, despite the Justice Department identifying it as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and designating it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history.

CAIR’s Florida branch has published a letter from the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties thanking it for its years of collaboration. The author says it was written at the request of the Secretary of Homeland Security, General John Kelly. It is dated May 5 and can be seen at Pamela Geller’s website.

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appreciates your years of support and partnership with the Department’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, working on issues central to the DHS mission, including identifying civil rights and civil liberties concerns in the homeland security context,” it states.

The Justice Department designated CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator during the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a Muslim Brotherhood front that was financing Hamas until it was shut down. The Justice Department identified CAIR as an “entity” of the Muslim Brotherhood’s branch in America, specifically its “Palestine Committee” tasked with aiding the Hamas terrorist group.

The DHS’ outreach with CAIR clashes with the Justice Department’s official policy banning the use of CAIR as a liaison to the Muslim-American community. In 2013, the Justice Department released a report reprimanding several FBI offices for their collaborations with CAIR in violation of policy.

FBI personnel were required in 2008 to begin “refraining from participating in any CAIR-sponsored events, avoiding being photographed with leaders of CAIR and not engaging with CAIR in events such as fundraisers.”

“[I]n order to stop CAIR senior leadership from exploiting any contact with the FBI, it is critical to control and limit any contact,” the report stated.

The Justice Department and FBI leadership pointed to evidence linking CAIR to Hamas and instituted the policy in 2008 to “ensure that the FBI is not supporting individuals who support extremist or terrorist ideologies.”

When the federal government engages CAIR like the DHS is doing, it gives CAIR legitimacy and a platform. Letters like these and pictures with government officials are used to fundraise, win support from Muslim-Americans, gain access to influential persons, have media segments booked and showcase its “moderate” credentials. All of this increases CAIR’s power and standing as the self-proclaimed representatives of the Muslim community.

Making matters worse is the fact that the letter was addressed to Hassan Shibly, an inflammatory activist whose extremism I exposed before he joined CAIR and was a guest speaker at Clarence High School in New York. You can read more about Shibly and CAIR-Florida’s extremism here.

Hopefully, the attribution to Secretary Kelly is just a standard formality and he didn’t actually request that this letter be written. Unfortunately, we do not know his position on designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, so we cannot responsibly assume this is the case.

On the positive side, DHS has withdrawn grants to several Islamic groups with unsatisfactory backgrounds and activities.

Earlier, four Muslim groups rejected counter-extremism funds they were previously granted as a means of protesting President Trump, a remarkably stupid and counterproductive approach that only hurts the communities they claim to be helping.

Another positive step is that the DHS has Katharine Gorka as an official adviser to the Office of Policy. She agrees with designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and is eager to uplift Muslims who take a staunch stand against Islamism. She is the wife of Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to the president known for making TV news anchors feel like they had an anvil fall on their headswhen they ask him confrontational questions.

Secretary Kelly was confirmed on January 20, so he’s had six months in office. By now, DHS policy should have been changed so it is consistent with the Justice Department’s when it comes to CAIR.

If this issue isn’t on his mind with everything that is going on, then it should be after the publication of this embarrassing letter thanking a deceptive Islamist group with a history of terror ties and extremism, including questioning whether fallen American servicemen should be honored on Memorial Day.

  1. People better wake up because every single Muslim/Islamic Organization, in this country, has settled into national and community organizations. The purpose for this is to create cultural jihad, in order to convert the world to Islam and subjugate nonbelievers to sharia law. They are trying to do this in France, Germany, Switzerland, England, Finland, ice land

  2. I have been a supporter of Trump from the first time he put his name for the presidency especially after I watched the interview he had with Oprah 25 years earlier. I truly hoped he would surround himself with rational and patriotic men and women. The most stunning and scariest thing about Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, although an excellent military man, he has not got an iota of clue about Islam even after years of dealing with them.

    I would like very much to have anyone in this administration refute anything I state in my following article~


    This is very informative and every American needs to read it from start to finish and send it on to others.

    Theologically – NO. . . Because Muslims submit only to Allah – originally the supreme ROCK god of Pagan Arabia- and hence most definitely not the same as the God of Jesus, Moses or Abraham.

    Religiously – NO. . . Because no other religion is accepted by Allah except Islam (Submission to Allah).

    Al Imran 3: 85 “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah) never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost”

    Scripturally – NO. . . Because Muslims’ allegiance is to Allah’s Sharia based upon Muhammad’s Quran and Sunna.

    Textually – NO … Because Muhammad’s Quran is Hatemongering, Warmongering, Misogynist, Racist, Intolerant, Disloyal, Duplicitous and hence UNGODLY.

    Geographically – NO. . . Because Muslims bow in reverence to Mecca in Arabia, to which they turn in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – NO. . . Because a Muslim’s devotion to Islam forbids him from making friends with Christians, Jews and any non Muslims~

    Al Mai’da 5: 51 “O ye who believe (Muslims)! take not the Jews [Yahood] and the Christians [Nasara] for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them…”

    Al Tauba 9: 29 “Fight [qatiloo] those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth [ISLAM] (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians & Jews] until they pay the Jizya [onerous penalty for not being a Muslim] with willing submission and feel themselves humiliated”

    Loyally – NO … Because a Muslim’s allegiance is primarily to ALL other Muslims all over the globe.
    Ishaq:231 “Muslims are one ummah (community) to the exclusion of all men. Believers are friends of one another to the exclusion of all outsiders.”

    Politically – No. . . Because Muslims must submit to their imams or mullahs (spiritual Leaders), who teach them equal opportunity HATRED for ALL those who are not followers of Muhammad (currently 80% of humanity called Ummat al Kuffar/ Nation of Infidels) as well as calls for the destruction of Western Civilization (Christianity).

    Al Fath 48: 13 “And if any believe not in Allah and His Apostle We have prepared for those who reject Allah a Blazing Fire!

    Domestically – No. . . Because Muslims are instructed to marry up to four women and to beat and scourge their wives when they disobey them

    Al Nisaa 4:34 “Men are the protectors and maintainers of women because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other and because they support them from their means. … As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct admonish them; refuse to share their beds; beat them …”

    Legally – No. . . Because Muslims cannot accept the American Constitution as binding since it is not from Allah’s Sharia as well as they believe the Bible is corrupted.

    Culturally- NO… Because Muslims belong to a culture that prefers Death more than Life.

    Ibrahim 14: 3 “Those who love the life of this world more than the Hereafter who hinder (men) from the Path of Allah and seek therein something crooked: they are astray by a long distance”

    Constitutionally – No. . . Because Sharia is the nemesis of Democracy; it does not allow for freedoms of religion, expression or belief. Democracy and Islam is an oxymoron; a state of affairs that cannot possibly co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial, autocratic or theocratic.

    Spiritually – No. . . Because the Christians’ God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent attributes.

    This is why Muslims in Europe and the USA are so quiet and not speaking out about all the world wide atrocities allegedly committed by so called ‘radical’ Muslims.

    Not once has there been a major demonstration – whether in Europe or the USA – by the so called ‘silent majority’ Muslims expressing their revulsion at acts of terror committed by these alleged ‘radicals’ shouting out loud “NOT IN OUR NAME!”

    Muhammad said: SILENCE means CONSENT!

    Therefore in a nutshell, every Muslim is a potential Mass Murderer the instant he/ she decides that he/she is NOT Sharia compliant enough thus becoming “Borne again Muslims”.
    (Although not ALL Muslims are Terrorists – in the sense they are murdering unbelievers – but it is a FACT that 100% of all Terrorists against Infidels are MUSLIMS)

    Therefore, after much study and deliberation…. Europeans and Americans should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in their country.

    In summation, Muslims cannot obviously be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Europeans or Americans. Call it what you will, these are the FACTS based entirely in chapter and verse upon their scripture.

    Humanity had better believe it. The more who understand these realities, the better it will be for humanity and their future generations.

    This is NOT a clash of Civilizations but a clash of Beliefs.
