terrorist threat to the United States Constitution.
We believe that the Council on American-Islamic Relations, (CAIR),
is a clear and present danger
to our Constitution and our way of life. We

About CAIR -
Down From Anti-CAIR
brief, Whitehead won a sweet
victory, while CAIR suffered a humiliating defeat ...In anticipation of
a court hearing
regarding discovery, Rubinstein filed papers in the Virginia Circuit
Court in October 2005 and December 2005 alleging extensive links
between CAIR’s organizers and control group with Hamas and other
foreign and domestic Islamists. Among other things, these papers
alleged: CAIR’s lineage goes back to a key Hamas leader (Musa Abu
Marzook), and that CAIR has long been connected with, and “exploited”
the 9/11 attacks to raise
money for the Holy Land Foundation, a Hamas front group. CAIR is
heavily supported, financially and otherwise, by suspect Saudi and
UAE-based individuals and groups. CAIR states that the U.S. judicial
system has been “kidnapped by Israeli
interests,”... In March 2006, shortly before a scheduled court hearing
to decide on several of Whitehead’s requests (compelling CAIR to
disclose its financial data, to answer questions about its
relationship with Hamas and other Islamists, and to provide information
regarding its leaders’ activities and intentions), the case was settled
and then dismissed with prejudice by
stipulation (meaning, the
plaintiff has agreed to forever drop all of the claims
that were in, or could have been in, the complaint) ...
CAIR’s own analysis of Whitehead’s initial statements, they “impute the
commission of a criminal offense” by CAIR,
in that these suggest CAIR
“actively supports” terrorists, and advocates the “overthrow” of the
U.S. Constitution in favor of Islamic law. It bears noting that none of
words were found to be false, they were not retracted, and they remain
posted on Anti-CAIR’s

Why did CAIR drastically reduce its claims versus
Whitehead?... CAIR’s filing an amended motion has two
apparent implications: that CAIR

and those assertions can now be repeated with legal impunity... CAIR has proven links to… Islamic
terrorists. It's easy to understand why CAIR chose to leave this
one alone, what with five current or former CAIR affiliates arrested,
convicted, or deported on terrorism-related charges...

Apparently it feared exposure that would reveal its leaders connections

beneficial to have more traditional, secular American organizations to
help spread the Islamist message. He and others envisioned an

Burns whether any groups formed after the Philadelphia gathering fit

documents name the Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR as being

Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee and/or its organizations." In
a precedent setting revelation, the government's trial brief sets forth
in great detail incontestable evidence linking CAIR to Hamas and the
Muslim Brotherhood. According to documents seized from co-conspirator
Ismail Elbarrasse, there is a straight line of associations going from
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and terminating with the Islamic Association
for Palestine, CAIR's immediate antecedent ... Such excuses will no
longer pass muster, the court documents and evidentiary materials that
have been amassed for use in the Holy Land Foundation case now prove
beyond all doubt that CAIR is Hamas.

to Islamist Terrorism

Enron responsible for what Ken Lay did."
of Hamas Family Tree
What has so far
gone unnoticed, though, is one last organization on this list that the
Committee hoped to establish in the future. As stated in the bylaws,
this organization would handle “issues relating to political work and
foreign relations”: It is a
committee which operates through the Association [IAP] for now. It is
hoped that it will become an official organization for political
work and its headquarters will be in Washington, God’s willing. It
represents the political aspect to support the cause politically on the
American front. An organization headquartered in
Washington, DC, tasked with political activism, born out of the IAP?
Maybe a vague reference at first glance, but growing evidence points to
the identity of the mystery organization listed in the bylaws as the
youngest in the family of HAMAS front groups founded on American soil.
Fast forward to July 30, 1994, just weeks after the Council on American
Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded. A Palestine Committee
agenda lists several issues to be discussed, including a review of the
reports of the “working organizations.” Listed among these
organizations right beside HLF, IAP, and UASR – all members of the
Palestine Committee as listed in the bylaws – is the word “CAIR." The
same CAIR that is headquartered in Washington, and whose co-founders -
executive director Nihad Awad and chairman emeritus Omar Ahmad - served
as president and public relations director, respectively, of the IAP ...
Director Placed at HAMAS Meeting
On the telephone, three men discussed
who should be invited to join
them in a meeting to discuss what to do next. The call included Omar
Ahmad (CAIR’s chairman emeritus), who at the time served at President
of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), Shukri Abu Baker,
President of the Holy Land Foundation and one of the defendants now on
trial, and Abdelhaleem al-Ashqar, the Executive Director of a
HAMAS-linked charity known as the Al Aqsa Educational Fund. They
discussed inviting people from the “Union,” a code reference to the
IAP. They mentioned “Akram,” “Abdul Rahman” and “Nihad.” In 1993, Nihad
Awad was the spokesman and public relations director for the IAP. During that same telephone
the men on the telephone call referred to Nihad's work in "media."
Shukri Abu Bakr mentioned "a full article in Dallas Morning News...and
every few lines: Mr. Nihad said this and that...." The Dallas
News did publish an article that day. It ran under the headline
"Dallas' Mideast Observers Warn of Conflict Ahead." It extensively
quoted "Nihad Awad, spokesman for the Dallas-based Islamic Association

announced his maximalist intentions, stating, "We've always demanded
the 1948 territories," code for the destruction of Israel and its
replacement with an Islamist state, but signaled his unwillingness to
go public with his views for fear of damaging his movement's position,
stating, "No, we didn't say that to the Americans." Despite
the less than optimal
outcome of the HLF trial, and while
the defendants await a decision by the prosecutors regarding a retrial,
another opportunity has presented itself to compare the mindset of the
HLF defendants with those of Hamas. Later this month, Israeli and
Palestinian negotiators are planning
to meet in Annapolis, Maryland for a conference designed to push the
Middle East peace process forward. Not to be dissuaded, and very much
in the mold of the 1993 Philadelphia meeting, Hamas is planning a
"rejectionist" conference in Damascus, inviting all Palestinian
hard-liners and terrorist groups, to coincide with the official
Current Hamas Deputy Political Bureau
Chief Mousa Abu Marzook, himself very much a part of the HLF trial,
said the reasoning behind the conference
was, "to send a clear message to the international community and the
United States that Abu Mazen (Abbas) does not represent the Palestinian
people in these negotiations," an unsurprising position for a top Hamas
official. But Hamas' positions are hardly limited to determining who is
allowed to speak for Palestinians. The Hamas Charter states, "Israel
will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it,
just as it obliterated others before it" ...

evidence shows "definitive proof that CAIR, ISNA, ICNA and all the
Muslim Brotherhood groups in this country came here with a markedly
different purpose from what they claim, and they have gone through
decades of deceit to conceal their true identities and purposes."...
Earlier this month in Washington, a handful of prominent Muslims
gathered to explain to an American audience why the Muslim Brotherhood
was a clear and present danger both to American Muslims and the nation.
Naser Khader, a Muslim parliamentarian from Denmark living under death
threat for speaking out against Islamic radicals, even called U.S.
government officials "useful idiots" for continuing to succor
extremists ...Turkish-born Zeyno Baran, a Hudson Institute scholar who
advises the Pentagon and other federal agencies, called the Brotherhood
affiliates "a fifth column of activists working to undermine the
foundation of America." Ms.
Baran, a Muslim who defends democratic secularism, blasted the U.S.
government for working with CAIR, ISNA and the rest, saying official
recognition legitimizes these groups among the wider Muslim community.
One cost of the American mainstream's refusal to call out these front groups, she warned, is giving
carte blanche to Islamists who want to quietly radicalize all American
Muslims, starting with students. If we want to avoid the kind of
social conflict tearing up Britain, Ms. Baran said, we must wake up and
challenge these closet Islamists publicly and not fall for their
rhetoric of victimization ...
In addition to
picking apart the arguments laid out in CAIR’s brief piece by piece,
the government set an important precedent, officially and definitively
linking CAIR to Hamas, writing: "In the instant case, striking
CAIR’s name from the attachment to the Trial Brief will not prevent its
conspiratorial involvement with HLF, and others affiliated with Hamas,
from becoming a matter of public record. That has already occurred as a
consequence of the presentation of evidence at trial."... The
government also argues some legal basics, that CAIR has no standing to
petition its removal from the list of unindicted co-conspirators since
the list is not directly pertinent to the “actual, ongoing controversy”
of HLF’s criminal trial, basically that, by filing the brief, CAIR has
not acted as a “friend of the court,” but rather only out of self
interest, and that, in the brief, CAIR has failed to show any injury as
a result of its inclusion on the list of unindicted co-conspirators ...
*CAIR's Islamism Revealed
acknowledge that counter-terrorism is a greater public responsibility
to the organized American Muslim community than the obsession with the
protection of our civil rights? Is it not the primary role of
Muslim American organizations to lead the ideological war against
radical Islamists? Isn’t this the number one issue on the mind of most
Americans in 2007? Non-Muslims can do nothing to deconstruct
this poisonous ideology. Our fellow Americans living in fear for their
security are looking for us to lead this fight. The credibility of
Muslims is suffering deeply as a result of the complete denial of this
responsibility by groups like CAIR. In fact, there may be no better way
to preserve our rights than by leading an ideological movement against
political Islam and militant Islamism ... The Washington Times piece
about CAIR was not a hit-piece nor was it anti-Muslim or anti-Islamic.
It begins the long overdue debate about the agenda of organizations
like CAIR and where they stand with regard to political Islam and these
questions. Soon, mainstream media and government leaders are going to
need finally to begin to ignore the intimidation tactics of
organizations like CAIR and to engage political Islam...

Prosecutors applied the label of

America, and the North American Islamic Trust in connection with a
trial planned in Texas next month for five officials of a defunct
charity, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development ... The document gave scant
details, but prosecutors described CAIR as a present or past member of
"the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee and/or its
organizations."... However, Mr. McGonigle
reported that records showed that the foundation sometimes singled out
the families of Hamas "martyrs" for assistance. Mr. McGonigle's lawyer
said his client could be targeted by
terrorists if he forced to testify. "A journalist who is perceived to

office confirmed to
NEWSWEEK that she has withdrawn a “certificate of accomplishment” to
Sacramento activist Basim Elkarra after learning that he serves as an
official with the Council on American -Islamic Relations (CAIR). After
directing her staff to look into CAIR, Boxer “expressed concern” about
some past statements and actions by the group, as well as assertions by
some law enforcement officials that it “gives aid to international
terrorist groups,” ... Boxer tells NEWSWEEK she never saw the letter to
CAIR signed in her name or was even aware of the award to Elkarra
before it was sent out. "I feel terrible about this," she says. "We
just made a mistake. I was not in the loop. That was an automatic
signature [on the letter]." But Boxer stands by her decision to
withdraw the award and to distance herself from CAIR, saying she was
influenced by previous critical statements about CAIR made by her
Democratic colleagues Sens. Richard Durbin of Illinois and Charles
Schumer of New York.
"To praise an organization because they haven't been indicted is like
somebody saying, 'I'm not a crook,'” Boxer says. “I'm going to take a
lot of hits for this. But I'm just doing what I think is right." ...
CAIR has formally asked for a meeting with Boxer and demanded that she
withdraw the action - which one top CAIR official said smacks of
“Islamophobia.” ... Boxer was unaware of the certificate to Elkarra
that had been given in her name by staff members in her California
office and only learned of it “when she came across a story on
Horowitz’s blog,” ... After review by her staff, Boxer was
concerned by claims that CAIR had refused to condemn Hamas and
Hizbullah and recognize those groups as terrorist organizations,” ... [Joe]
Kaufman, for his part, couldn’t be more pleased. “We are proud of Sen.
Boxer,” he says. “By taking back this award, the senator has shown that
she is conscious of the extreme problems that Basim Elkarra and his
group, CAIR, pose to the public.” ...
"CAIR consistently deceives the American
public, law enforcement and politicians, portraying itself as a
moderate and independent organization,"..."But its own records,
statements and other documents tell a different story which the public
deserves to know." ...There is one non-profit, Anti-CAIR, founded by
Andrew Whitehead, which devotes all of its energies to exposing what it
considers CAIR's shady practices. It was Anti-CAIR that publicized the
fact that a link on CAIR's website soliciting donations for New York
firefighters actually took contributors to the home page for Holy
Land--the accused backer of Hamas..
CAIR-Canada's Lawsuit Against
Former CSIS Official Dismissed
It is for others to decide why CAIR-CAN
balked at the prospect of
proceeding to trial. It is unknown whether this unease stemmed from
concern about the detailed review and disclosures that would derive
from such proceedings ... People of good faith must look carefully at
the broader implications of
all of this. In their Statement of Claim, CAIR-CAN chose to construe my
question about its relationship with US CAIR, as implying that:
[CAIR-CAN is an Islamist, extremist sympathetic group in Canada
supporting terrorism; Sheema Khan is an individual supporting Islamic,
extremist causes, including the support of terrorism; CAIR-CAN is a
subsidiary of its parent organization, CAIR, which itself
is an organization supporting terrorism and run by individuals
convicted of terrorist related offences. CAIR-CAN and CAIR share a
common and inter-related goal of fostering their extremist views, and
of supporting terrorism to achieve their objectives; CAIR-CAN and
Sheema Khan falsely and fraudulently misrepresent themselves as
moderate representatives of Muslim interests; CAIR-CAN and Sheema Khan
are frightening moderate Islamists, and are driving young people into

was listed among "entities who are
and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine
Committee." Then, when the group petitioned to remove its name from
that list, prosecutors said such relief "will not prevent its
conspiratorial involvement with HLF, and others affiliated with Hamas,
from becoming a matter of public record." Now, in a federal court filing
from December, federal prosecutors have described CAIR as "having
conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support
terrorists." The government also stated that "proof that the
conspirators used deception to conceal from the American public their
connections to terrorists was introduced" in the Dallas Holy
Land Foundation trial last year and the Chicago trial of the Hamas men
in 2006 ... Federal prosecutors used their response to the brief to
court of the both organizations' questionable stand on the issue of
terrorism itself ...

Support of CAIR Garners New Scrutiny
When it was
formed, CAIR was helped out by $5,000 from HLF ... "This is an outright
lie," Awad said. "Our organization did not
receive any seed money from HLFRD. CAIR raises its own funds and we
challenge Mr. Emerson to provide even a shred of evidence to support
his ridiculous claim." Emerson did better than that. Through Epstein,
he provided the
Senate committee with HLF's original seed money to CAIR, drawn on a
Saudi Arabian bank account ... Awad's testimony wasn't the first
time CAIR denied the HLF support.
Earlier in 2003, during a deposition for a civil case, CAIR co-founder
and then-chairman Omar Ahmad was asked, "Did they [HLF] give you any
money to help start CAIR?" He responded unequivocally, "No." ...
Awad then attempted to minimize the significance of the CAIR/HLF
money trail: "HLF was not indicted for any criminal activity at the
time of its donation in 1994 and its assets were frozen by the Justice
Department seven years later in December 2001." He added that HLF's
"relatively small donation" came "seven years before any wrongdoing was
attributed to Holy Land Foundation." Transcripts from government
surveillance tapes make clear, however,
that CAIR's founders were fully aware of the support HLF
for Hamas well before accepting the money...
Jihad: Islamist 'Lawfare'
Stifling Western Free Speech On Radical Islam
of the major proponents of Islamist lawfare in the US is the
Washington-based Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an
unindicted co-conspirator in a terror financing case and self-described
representative of the American Muslim population...
in the West met with enthusiastic approval from anti-extremist,
moderate Muslims, but with predictable condemnation from the
"Wahhabi lobby" represented by the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) and its allies ... The radical Muslim response to the
NYPD report predictably employed the
pretexts of alleged "profiling" and "inappropriate" criteria. But the
report did not embody "profiling;" rather, it was an
work based on open source documents and serious expertise, and utilized
a case study approach drawing on terrorism incidents
abroad ... But for Islamists in America,
charges of "profiling" and
"inappropriate" methods are the preferred reply to critical
of almost all significant matters.... According to the radicals, they
themselves represent the Muslim
mainstream, their practices and beliefs are harmless,
questioning of them amounts to persecution. Unfortunately for the
extremists, many Muslims disagree with them,
considering them a deviant
phenomenon, their habits and views distorted, and their worldwide quest
for domination worthy of decided opposition ... Her
involvement in CAIR's counter-attack on the
otherwise ... Debbie Almontaser appears to be a classic "stealth
Islamist," and KGIA
looks like just the kind of radicalizing effort it was said to be by
its critics ... Shia Muslim community leaders in New York

opposition to the campaign and their support for the police, and have
refused to sign the letter ...

118 members — both Democrats and Republicans. The threat we face from

Islamofascists have told us
how they intend to infiltrate all areas of our society and use the
freedoms that are guaranteed under our Constitution to eventually
Islamize our country, eliminate our Constitution and enact Shariah law
... I know of some Muslim nongovernmental
organizations that are doing good things, such as the Islamic Supreme
Council of America, the American Islamic Congress and the American
Islamic Forum for Democracy. However, groups such as Council on
(CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and others have a
proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned
or deported from the U.S. Just to name a few: Ghassan Elashi, a
founding board member of CAIR, is serving 80 months in prison; Randall
"Ismail" Royer, the communications director for CAIR, is serving 20
years in prison; and Bassam Khafagi, the director of CAIR's community
relations, has been arrested and deported. There was a lot of evidence
presented at the recent Holy Land
Foundation trial, which exposed CAIR, ISNA and others as front groups
for the Muslim Brotherhood ...We need to shed the veil of political
correctness that shields government officials from speaking out against
Daniel Pipes? Enough, Already!
What is it about Mr. Pipes that makes Mr. Ibrahim Hooper (CAIR
Spokesperson) swoon at the
very mention of his name? What is so frightening about Mr. Pipes?
Has he advocated violence and supported terrorist murders like Mr.
Ahmad and Mr. Hooper? Does Mr. Pipes advocate blowing up
buses, like Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Hooper have? Has Mr. Pipes fought
the FBI to stop them from investigating Islamist terrorists, like Mr.
Ahmad and Mr. Hooper have? Has Mr. Pipes blamed every single
offense against Jews (no matter how big or small) on “Anti-Jewish”
bigotry by Americans as Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Hooper have for
Muslims?...Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Hooper are self-serving prostitutes to the
Anti-American, Anti-Freedom cult that is Wahabbi Islam. For
either of these “men” to self-appoint themselves as leaders of the
Islamic faith is a grave insult to peaceful followers of Islam....
