Randall Royer Pleads Guilty
On January 16th,
Randall Royer pleaded guilty to charges of using and
a firearm during, and in relation to, a crime of violence;
and with carrying an explosive during commission of a felony.
Mr. Royer faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in
prison. (Mr. Royer also uses the first
name of “Ismail”)
the time Mr. Royer committed
crimes, he was in a leadership
position at the Council on American Islamic
Relations, (CAIR), a Washington DC based organization that
claims to protect the civil rights of Muslims in the United States and Canada. (It should be noted that years earlier, as a student,
Royer worked a short period with CAIR before he joined Bosnian
Forces fighting Serbs in 1994.)
(ACAIR), has been
following the story of Mr. Royer’s “adventures” on behalf of militant
Islam, in particular, our press release nr’s:
Since Mr. Royer has pleaded guilty, we were curious as to the

matters of importance to the Muslim community.
other CAIR officials have either proven or suspected ties to militant
Islam. Mr. Bassem K. Khafagi has pleaded guilty to charges of visa and bank
fraud in federal court in Detroit. Charges
were brought against Mr. Khafagi for his role with the
Islamic Assembly of North America. Mr. Khafagi was community affairs director for CAIR at the
time of his arrest.
February 2, 1995, Siraj Wahhaj
was named as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged
as co-conspirators” in the attempt to blow up targets in New York. Mr. Wahhaj, on CAIR’s advisory board, was
described by CAIR as “one of the most respected Muslim leaders in America.”
We believe we know why Mr. Royer
is “persona non grata” at CAIR, but we'd
