     CAIR:  FBI Training a Muslim Extremist?

     Hussam Ayloush, leader of the Southern California branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is attending the “FBI Citizens' Academy”. 

     On September 7, Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) issued a “News and Analysis” titled “CAIR: Cops Training Terrorists?”

     ACAIR called into question the FBIs' practice of inviting leaders from the business, religious and civic fields to attend the “FBI Citizens' Academy” and how dangerous this could be, particularly if a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) representative were to be invited

     Ayloush brags in his blog of his invite and mentions, in the first paragraph (Sept. 30):

“Through my work at CAIR, I get to interact closely
with the local FBI office, mainly on cases involving
hate crimes against Muslims or counter-terrorism.”

     So, if Ayloush is correct, the FBI has worked with CAIR, a Muslim terrorist supporting organization, to help in the “War on Terror” in the field of counter-terrorism?  (Ayloush didn’t mention just how he helped the FBI find Muslim terrorists, but maybe allowing the FBI to take a stroll through his blackberry helped?)

     What must it be like for a newly-minted FBI agent to step into his/her first office, for their very first assignment, and look up and see Ayloush standing by to lend his “expertise” in fighting radical Islam?  What would Ayloush tell the new agent?  What possible constructive advice could a representative of a Muslim hate group offer?  What about the veteran FBI agent, who knows the truth about CAIR and is shocked at the FBI leaderships close relationship with CAIR?  What a slap in the face… 

     While we can’t speak for FBI agents, ACAIR can’t help but believe that J. Edgar Hoover must be spinning in his grave.  Can anyone imagine the FBI holding hands with NAZI’s during World War II?

     ACAIR wonders just how CAIR successfully co-opted whichever FBI agent was so clueless, so ignorant or just simply stupid enough to invite America’s leading Islamic hate group to participate in a program designed to help protect America from…Islamic hate groups.

     This begs several questions:

     1.  When the next CAIR official is arrested on Islamic terrorism related charges, how will the FBI explain its coziness with Ayloush?   
     2.  How do field FBI agents feel, knowing that their superiors are fawning over the very group that supports those they are fighting?
     3.  How many terror attacks on America, or her allies, must occur before the FBI removes its rose-colored glasses and sees the obvious for what it is, i.e., that CAIR is no friend of the FBI, never has been, never will be?

     How many Americans lives are in danger, how much will the radical Islamic movement gain by having a CAIR representative help the FBI in counter-terrorism? 

     No amount of spin will protect the FBI from the righteous indignation of the American people when this arguably treasonous act is exposed.

     The Council on American-Islamic Relations is a clear and present danger to the United States, why is this news to the senior leadership of the FBI, (but not to field agents) ...?
