Beware of CAIR

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Wahhabi-funded organization that promotes a radical Islamic vision, is upset about several things: (a) what it perceives to be an increasing amount of government surveillance of U.S. mosques; (b) new Justice Department guidelines that it claims encourage profiling; and (c) the FBI’s recent suspension of its ties with CAIR.

The FBI’s action stems from a 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 — a group that bankrolled schools and social-welfare programs controlled by Hamas.

Although CAIR’s strategy has been to project an image of moderation to the general public, not everyone has been fooled; even a number of Muslims have been able to see through CAIR’s charade. For example, Kamal Nawash of the Free Muslim Coalition Against Terrorism says that CAIR and similar groups are composed of “theocratic Muslims” who “reject secularism,” “want to establish Islamic states,” and “condemn terrorism on the surface while endorsing an ideology that helps foster extremism.”

According to U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R – North Carolina), co-founder of the House Anti-Terrorism/Jihad Caucus, “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.)

Such criticisms of CAIR even come from leftists like Democrat Senator Richard Durbin, who has asserted that CAIR has “intimate links with Hamas” and “clear ties to terrorism.”  

When the left and the right both agree on something, we all should take note.
