The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Wahhabi-funded organizationÂ that promotes a radical Islamic vision, is upset about several things:Â (a) what it perceives to beÂ an increasing amount of government surveillanceÂ of U.S. mosques; (b)Â newÂ Justice Department guidelinesÂ that it claims encourage profiling; and (c)Â the FBI’s recent suspension of its ties with CAIR.
The FBI’s action stems from aÂ trial in Dallas last year in which CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development â€” a group that bankrolled schools and social-welfare programsÂ controlled by Hamas.
Although CAIR’s strategy has been to project an image of moderationÂ to the general public,Â not everyone has been fooled; even a number of Muslims have been able toÂ see through CAIR’s charade.Â For example, Kamal Nawash of the Free Muslim Coalition Against TerrorismÂ saysÂ that CAIR and similar groups are composed of “theocratic Muslims” who “reject secularism,”Â ”want to establish Islamic states,” and “condemn terrorism on the surface while endorsing an ideology that helps foster extremism.”
According toÂ U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R – North Carolina), co-founder of the House Anti-Terrorism/Jihad Caucus,Â ”Groups like CAIR have a proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned or deported from the United States.”
Terrorism expert Steven Emerson, citing federal law-enforcement sources and internal documents, characterizes CAIR as “a radical fundamentalist front group for Hamas.” (Hamas, of course, is a genocidal organization dedicated to the mass murder of Jews.)
When the left and the right both agree on something,Â we all should take note.
