and the Muslim Brotherhood
Organizations that deserve more scrutiny
than they usually get

The organizations discussed on this page apparently have two common goals: the manipulation of the American news media and the suppression of any criticism of Islam.  They portray Muslims as the victims of 9/11/2001 rather than the perpetrators.

It is amazing to see that even after the September 11th attacks, which were apparently carried out by Muslims, any criticism of Islam is still considered "islamophobia".  After all, phobia = fear = terror.  Isn't terror what terrorists want?  If islamophobia exists, the Islamic terrorists are to blame.

As Muslim Is Arrested for NY Subway Plot, CAIR Demands Bloomberg Apologize for Counterterror Program.  [Scroll down]  The judge in one of those lawsuits said that the plaintiffs had not proven that "they were targeted solely because of their religion."  He said that the "more likely explanation for the surveillance was to locate budding terrorist conspiracies."  Who could object to that?  CAIR, of course.  CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department.  CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.  Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror.  CAIR's cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S.  (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.)  CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement.  CAIR has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates.  CAIR's Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.  CAIR's national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.

Vote Every Muslim Out of Office.  Anyone who believes Islam is some sort of peaceful religion is woefully and dangerously ignorant of history and proven facts — as was I until the early 2000's.  You see, most Americans really are a very compassionate people who want to be fair and tolerant.  To see other Americans — especially naturalized Americans enjoy our God-given rights — like worshipping the religion of their choice.  One may not agree with someone's religion but Catholics, Methodists, Presbyterians, Jews and other denominations do not threaten to cut your head off if you don't worship some invented 'god' named, Allah.  Islam does and its violence and fear that keeps those poor souls from knowing true freedom of expression, the right to leave Islam with their head still on their shoulders. [...] "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any faith, but to become dominant.  The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." — Omar Ahmed, director of Council on American Islamic Relations.

CAIR Expelled from Maryland's Hate Crimes Commission.  Maryland Governor Wes Moore (D) signed a bill on May 16 to oust the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) from a state board that monitors hate crimes.  That decision, following unanimous approval by the Maryland General Assembly, followed months of meetings, drafting, and advocacy by the Middle East Forum's campaign arm (MEF Action).  CAIR's Maryland director, Zainab Chaudry, posted multiple antisemitic comments to social media in the aftermath of the Oct. 7 atrocity, when Hamas slaughtered 1,200 people in Israel, including 32 Americans, and abducted relatives of Maryland residents.  She compared Israel to Nazi Germany and repeated Hamas media claims that Israeli Jews were harvesting the organs of dead Palestinians.

Could This Finally Be the Downfall of Hamas-Linked CAIR?  For years, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been the nation's most effective Islamic group, and its list of accomplishments is long: it has normalized the term "Islamophobia" and the stigmatization and silencing of honest discussion of the motivating ideology behind jihad violence.  It has helped solidify an alliance between the left and Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. and has been instrumental in turning the left against Israel to the extent that leftists will demonstrate for a bloodthirsty jihad terror group.  Recently, however, CAIR has hit an unprecedented bad patch that could even mean its downfall.  What a shame.  First, CAIR top dog Nihad Awad, apparently feeling (with good reason) untouchable, declared that Hamas' Oct. 7 jihad massacres in Israel made him "happy."  That was too much even for the Biden regime, which summarily dropped CAIR from the groups that were helping it craft "a national antisemitism strategy."

Leftist Foundations Have Forked Over Millions to Hamas-Linked CAIR.  In Old Joe Biden's America, those who hate the country and want to see it radically "transformed" into a state without borders, the freedom of speech, the right to bear arms and other annoying obstacles to socialist internationalism, are in the driver's seat.  And they're raking in millions.  This includes the left's pro-Hamas allies, most notably the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  Nihad Awad, CAIR's cofounder and longtime executive director, recently came under fire for saying of the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre of 1,200 Israeli civilians:  "And yes, I was happy to see people breaking the siege and throwing down the shackles of their own land, and walk free into their land, which they were not allowed to walk in."  This was too much even for the Biden regime, which removed CAIR from its campaign to combat antisemitism.  CAIR, loaded as it is with jihad supporters and Jew-haters, never should have been part of that initiative in the first place, but was likely included because it enjoys so much favor among those who make up the Biden regime's hard-left base.  And that favor has translated into millions of dollars in donations for this sinister, unsavory group.

Feds to CAIR: 'We Just Can't Quit You'.  Last week, the Biden administration discontinued working with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), on a national strategy to combat anti-Semitism.  Reports surfaced that CAIR executive director, Nihad Awad, told a pro-Palestine gathering this November "he was 'happy' to witness Hamas' terror attack against Israel on Oct 7."  He also said, "Israel as an occupying power does not have [the] right to self-defense."  To anyone familiar with CAIR's true mission — not its disguise as a "Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization" — Awad's remarks are no surprise.  As far back as 1994 Awad publicly announced his support for "the Hamas movement."  But some of you might be asking, What is CAIR, anyhow?  The better question is, What is the Muslim Brotherhood?  Because CAIR is the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.

WH Quickly Distances Itself From CAIR After Exec Director Admits He Was 'Happy' Hamas Attacked Israel.  The White House is frantically trying to distance itself from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) after its executive director Nihad Awad claimed he was "happy" to watch the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack unfold.  Speaking at the 16th Annual Convention for Palestine in the U.S. on Nov. 24, he said that the people of Gaza were merely "breaking the siege": [...] Now if that's not openly endorsing the savage terror attacks, the rape and torture of women, the beheading of babies, and the wanton killing of civilians, then I don't know what is.  The Biden administration launched an anti-Islamophobia initiative several weeks after the Hamas assaults — even though antisemitism is a far worse problem in the country right now — and listed CAIR as "one of several independent organizations" involved in the effort.  The White House is now "removing their commitment" from the initiative after Awad's comments went viral.

Hamas Ally CAIR Has Been Operating With Impunity Inside America for 30 Years.  After Hamas massacred 1,400 men, women and children in Israel last month, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the terror group "and its allies" could inspire attacks on Americans "here on our own soil." He also told the Senate that the FBI is conducting "multiple, ongoing investigations" into people affiliated with the U.S.-designated terrorist group.  What Wray didn't say is that the FBI has been investigating Hamas' biggest ally in America for the past 30 years — without filing any charges.  Launched in 1994 as a secret front organization to support Hamas, according to declassified FBI wiretap transcripts and FBI testimony, the Council on American-Islamic Relations has, in the decades since, become an accepted member of Washington's lobbying community.  The New York Times and other influential newspapers routinely describe CAIR as a "Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization."  Although it has not repudiated its support for Hamas — which is committed to the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people — CAIR was enlisted by the Biden administration in May to take part in a White House initiative to fight antisemitism.

Far-Left Islamic Group Presses Joe Biden to Open 'Temporary' Amnesty for Palestinians in U.S..  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressing President Joe Biden to offer Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Palestinians living in the United States, ensuring they cannot be deported under most circumstances.  CAIR officials, along with the Americans for Justice in Palestine Action, wrote to Biden on Tuesday evening, asking the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to give TPS — a quasi-amnesty program — to Palestinians in the U.S., as well as offering them Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) to ensure they will not be deported.

What does this tell you about CAIR?
Hamas Wants to Trade CAIR Leader in Federal Prison for U.S. Hostages.  While Israel has refused to trade hostages for terrorists, Biden may be more willing to do so.  Senior Hamas leader Ali Baraka told Russia's RT propaganda network, "There are also prisoners in the U.S. We want them.  Of course.  There are Hamas members sentenced for life in the U.S. We want them too.  Of course.  We demand that the U.S. free our sons from prisons.  The U.S. conducts prisoner swaps.  Only recently, it did one with Iran.  Why wouldn't it conduct a prisoner swap with us?"  Barakeh went into more specifics about which Hamas members he meant in another interview.  "There are Palestinians held in America.  We will ask for their release.  There are Palestinians who are detained by the United States on charges of supporting the resistance in Palestine.  They were detained in America because they were accused of running charity organizations that support the people besieged in the Gaza."  This almost certainly refers to the Holy Land Foundation case in which key figures in the largest Islamic charity in America were convicted of helping to send millions to Hamas.

Muslim Org That Advised White House Gives Students, K-12 Parents Script To Denounce 'One-Sided' Support Of Israel.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has advised the White House on combating antisemitism, gave K-12 parents and college students a template to denounce their school's support of Israel in the wake of the Hamas terror attack.  Israel declared war over the weekend after being attacked by Hamas, a U.S.-designated Palestinian terrorist organization, resulting in the deaths of over 1,300 Israelis and 3,000 more injured, with over 100 taken hostage, according to The Wall Street Journal.  CAIR's California chapter released template letters for students and their parents to use to call out their school or university if it puts out a statement in support of Israel, according to the press release.

The Truth About Hamas.  Hamas — the Gaza branch of the Muslim Brotherhood — murdered approximately a thousand people on the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur 1973 War.  While Israeli armed forces deal with the attack, the ideological brothers-in-arms of the perpetrators in the West celebrate.  Countless demonstrations have been organized worldwide — from Berlin to Amsterdam to London — to anti-Israeli protests in New York, Washington, D.C. (a pro-Hamas parade in front of the White House), Florida, and many Canadian provinces.  When the Sydney Opera House was illuminated in the Israeli flag colors at night in Australia, hundreds of Hamas supporters gathered to attack the Opera House while chanting, "Gas the Jews!" Hamas celebration rally in New York City arrogantly flashed the Nazi swastika.  Why are there so many Hamas supporters outside the Gaza Strip?  Why did the anti-American group Code Pink endorse Hamas' butchery of Israelis?

CAIR, SJP, American Muslim Groups Back Palestinians After Terror Attack in Israel.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and a variety of other Muslim and pro-Palestinian groups in the United States failed to condemn the Hamas terror attack on Israel on Saturday, and instead offered their support.  The Palestinian terror attack happened on the Jewish holiday of Shemini Atzeret, the final day of the annual High Holy Day cycle.  In a statement, CAIR expressed solidarity with the Palestinian people, and did not condemn violence against Israel.  Over 300 Israelis were murdered, and over 1,500 wounded, in an unprecedented terror attack on civilian targets.

CAIR Wants Schools to Consult Mosques Before Teaching Sex Ed.  Prayers in schools and any kind of religious content, from the Ten Commandments to Christmas songs, remain widely opposed by litigious leftist organizations like the ACLU. And even the most modest efforts to keep kids from being exposed to graphic pornographic content have been assailed by the Biden administration which has sued school districts for trying to keep kids safe.  That's why CAIR's guide telling schools how to treat Muslim students is so extraordinary.  The Islamist organization lays out rules for Islamic school prayers and tells schools to consult with mosques about sex ed.  It warns schools against allowing Muslim girls to interact with boys in co-ed environments like swimming and dancing.  And, in a time when leftist governors and school boards force girls to shower with transgender boys who claim to be members of their sex, it even insists that Muslim girls should shower in their burkinis even in single sex settings.  But what is truly extraordinary about the CAIR guide is that there will not be a word of protest against it from the same political establishment and media that smeared Florida laws empowering parents to protect students from sexual content as "Don't Say Gay".

What are the odds that this alleged mosque attacker, like so many others before him, is also a Muslim himself?  Check out the heavy Muslim-looking beard on the alleged attacker.  He certainly seems to know his way around mosques, inside and out.  Of course, designated terrorist group CAIR spokesjihadi, Jaylani Hussein, is quick to blame it on so-called "Islamophobia" in order get all the sympathetic media coverage he can muster (as evident in all the reports below). [...] Just don't expect the Islam-sympathetic Minneapolis police to investigate any Muslim suspects.  Or CAIR to report on it, if it turns out to be one of their own.  [Numerouss video clips]

Designated terrorist group CAIR is demanding that a 'private Baptist university' reopen a campus mosque.  Shaw University in North Carolina shut down its Saudi-funded mosque in 2020 during the COVID epidemic.  As a private Baptist university, the school is NOT legally required to accommodate other faiths.  Nevertheless, a Hamas-linked Muslim special rights group, CAIR, insists that it is.

Hamas-Linked CAIR Virtue Signals Over Racist Flyers in Rhode Island.  Corey Saylor, the Director of Research and Advocacy at the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has given us his reaction to the distribution of racist flyers in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.  So this is a group that has become more active in the last few years.  They recently had a march in Maine where they held up anti-Somali flyers.  It is unusual for CAIR ever to provide any information in its appearances on the news, but based on this clue about a demonstration in Maine, we see that Saylor is talking about the Nationalist Social Club 131.  The NSC 131 is not acting against Muslims.  Whatever objections these Nazis have to Somalis are due to the fact that the Somalis are black.

CAIR Files Discrimination Lawsuit Against Missouri Gun Range.  "Islamophobia" is reaching epidemic proportions in Old Joe Biden's America: the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Independence, Mo. law firm of Baldwin & Vernon filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday, claiming that Frontier Justice, a gun store and firing range in the Kansas City suburb of Lee's Summit, discriminated against a Muslim woman, Rania Barakat, when it wouldn't allow her to use the range while she was wearing her hijab.

The Editor says...
[#1] The owner of a private business retains the right to associate — or not — with anyone he chooses.  [#2] In the long run, Muslims are bent on the violent domination of the world.  There is no reason to assist them with this effort.

Muslim wives expose dirty secrets of CAIR leaders.  Housewife Imane Sadrati's claims of spousal abuse at the hands of a prominent Muslim set in motion a "Me Too"-style campaign rarely seen in the insulated Islamic community.  Sadrati is not an ordinary Muslim housewife.  She is married to Hassan Shibly, who had championed himself as a "human rights" advocate in his former top executive position at CAIR-Florida (Council on American-Islamic Relations). Their estranged relationship had enjoyed a measure of privacy in the insular Islamic organization.  That was before Sadrati decided to revolt against the Muslim taboo of not discussing personal scandals, and turned her divorce into a high-profile media event.  Her accusations of 12 years of abuse were shocking enough, but Sadrati's decision to publicly denounce her husband, a nationally recognized Muslim leader, qualified as a public relations nightmare for CAIR's management team.

Community college to pay six figure settlement to prof whose test question offended a Muslim student.  Scottsdale Community College will pay $150,000 to settle a lawsuit from a professor accused of anti-Muslim bias.  The college was of accused of prematurely criticizing political science professor Professor Nicholas Damask for including three quiz questions about Islamic extremism on a quiz.  One asked, "Where is terrorism encouraged in Islamic doctrine and law?"  The correct answer was "the Medina verses" in the Qur'an.  Student Mohamed Sabra, who is Muslim, complained, alleging that Damask's exam forced him to "either disavow his religion or be punished by getting the answers wrong on the quiz," according to a lawsuit filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations against Scottsdale Community College and Damask last June, according to AZ Central.

Jihadi Kills 10 in Boulder — Jihadi Network Left Untouched.  On Monday March 22nd, ten Americans were killed by a Syrian-born jihadi named Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa.  Like almost all of the jihadis who have killed Americans on our soil, this jihadi was known to the FBI.  Like all of the other jihadis, Alissa has a massive support network that trains and support jihadi operations which continues to be untouched by the FBI, DHS, and states like Colorado.  Jihadi organizations like Hamas/CAIR, ICNA, ISNA and its affiliates, MAS, MSA, and so many others operate with impunity in Colorado.  Mosques all over Colorado — and the United States — teach muslims the purpose of Islam is to wage war against the non-muslim community until "allah's divine law"/sharia is imposed on every human on earth and all un-Islamic governments are destroyed, being replaced by an Islamic State.  Just read the textbooks used for 7th graders in U.S. Islamic schools and you will see it teaches muslim children that sharia must be imposed on all human beings, and that they are obliged to be exclusively loyal to "the Islamic State."

The Charities Review Council Stumbles Regarding CAIR.  The Charities Review Council (CRC) is a nationwide organization that matches donors with not-for profit organizations that meet its "accountability standards."  Established in 1946, CRC claims to strengthen nonprofits internal policies and accountability and prides itself that "every precious dollar goes to strong, ethical, and trustworthy nonprofits."  They claim to educate nonprofits about transparency and how being transparent is crucial in meeting its rigorous accountability standards.  Its strategic priorities include culturally responsible giving and being a model for integrity.  In November the executive director of CRC, Kris Kewitsch, admitted in a telephone discussion that she was unaware of CAIR's origins or its ongoing support of terrorist organizations and anti-Semitism.  She welcomed the opportunity to be informed.  She was provided information about the FBI's wiretapped evidence from a 1993 meeting of Hamas leaders discussing the formation of CAIR.  She was sent links about U.S. prosecutors identifying CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the federal case against the Holy Land Foundation raising money for Hamas in the United States.  She was shown that United Arab Emirates, a pious Muslim country, designated CAIR a terrorist organization.  She was informed that the State of Arkansas passed a House Resolution suspending outreach and contact with CAIR because CAIR officials were sentenced to prison on terrorism charges.  She was advised that the Commerce Department's Census Bureau severed its partnership with CAIR because of its ties to the terrorist group Hamas.

Company agrees not to place guards at Minnesota voting sites as part of lawsuit settlement.  A Tennessee company that had been advertising for security guards to monitor the 2020 election in Minnesota and then backed away from the idea must follow certain provisions in the future as part of a settlement agreement in federal court.  The Minnesota chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the League of Women Voters filed a lawsuit against Atlas Aegis LLC alleging illegal voter intimidation.

CAIR's "Exposed" Series Exposes CAIR's Terrorist Sympathies.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Florida chapter concluded a jaw-dropping, eyebrow raising series of online discussions last weekend, all of which whitewash radical Islamists with direct ties to terrorists or violence as victims of law enforcement set-ups.  The series, "EXPOSED: A History of Civil Rights Abuses, From Political Prisoners to Police Brutality," is all the more astounding since CAIR has its own documented links to a Hamas-support network which it has spent more than a decade trying to sweep under the rug.  Two of the four sessions in the series focus on prosecutions for supporting Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).  Each program was inherently dishonest, casting people who knowingly helped underwrite an infrastructure of death for Palestinian terrorist groups as humanitarian and civil rights activists targeted because of their ideas and supposed influence.

CAIR Is Aligned With BLM And Antifa.  Seemab Hussaini, spokesperson for the Oregon chapter of CAIR, an Islamic group linked to violent extremism, expresses support for the violent riots in the city as a means to force through a political agenda.

CAIR-MN Calls For Worker To Be Fired For Writing 'ISIS' On Muslim Woman's Starbucks Cup.  A Twin Cities woman says she was harassed last week on her coffee run at a Target store in St.  Paul.  Nineteen-year-old Aishah says she and a friend went to get a coffee inside the Midway Target's Starbucks booth, which is managed by the Minnesota-based company.  She said before she could finish telling the employee behind the counter her name, she saw the employee write something on the side of the cup and hide it from view.  She got the beverage, which read "ISIS."

CAIR Enraged, Files Lawsuit Over the Truth About Islam Told at a College.  You may recall Nicholas Damask.  He is the Scottsdale Community College (SCC) professor about whom I wrote here at FrontPage several weeks ago, when Muslim students threatened his life for observing that Islam teaches violence.  Damask was repudiated by the college, which tried to force him to apologize until reminded that punishing a professor for telling unwelcome truths is still a bad look for an academic institution in the United States.  Damask, however, is not out of the woods yet:  the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has now filed suit against the college for daring to step away from the fictions and fantasies it has foisted on most colleges and universities in their teaching about Islam and terrorism.  The Arizona Republic reported that the Arizona chapter of CAIR "filed a lawsuit Tuesday [6/2/2020] in U.S. District Court against Scottsdale Community College and one of its professors for teaching material that it says condemns Islam."  You probably didn't realize that it was illegal to condemn Islam in the United States.  It clearly isn't illegal to condemn Christianity or Judaism; it happens all the time, and those who do this are celebrated by all the elite classes and glitterati.  But condemning Islam, well!  That's another matter altogether.

CAIR-DFW's Immigration Double Standards.  As the coronavirus has spread from China to more than 110 countries around the world, and as it has gone from epidemic to pandemic status, nations around the world have adapted their travel ban list to include countries with high outbreaks.  On February 28th, the annual pilgrimage destination for most of the Muslim world, Saudi Arabia, joined other countries banning travel and imposed a travel ban to Mecca and Medina over public health concerns regarding the coronavirus.  Twelve Muslim-majority countries were put on Saudi Arabia's travel ban list:  Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Somalia, Syria, Uzbekistan, Yemen.  Ten Asian countries were also placed on the list:  China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam.  The response from local Dallas Islamists to this news was muted and starkly in contrast to the fighting words used to describe Trump's travel bans, border walls, or other immigration policies.

Balkanization of America Accelerating Faster Than Expected.  The Council on American Islamic Relations works 24/7 to bring Sharia Law to America.  The Muslim Brotherhood works to incorporate black minorities into that religion with the intent of overthrowing the U.S. Constitution.  The greater their numbers the greater their power.

Terror-Linked Islamic Activists Renew Protests against Free Speech at U.S. Army War College.  True to form, the Council on American-Islamic Relations ("CAIR") — also known as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the largest terrorist funding case in U.S. history, and a designated "terrorist organization" for nations allied to America — is again protesting my forthcoming appearance to the U.S. Army War College, urging the latter to "reconsider its decision and disinvite Ibrahim," since my presentation will no doubt be "hypocritical, ahistorical and hateful."  This, of course, is all déjà vu — a repeat of events from eight months ago.

Terror-Tied CAIR Attacking Minnesota Church Clergy.  Terror-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is at it again in Minnesota.  They are attempting to browbeat into submission anyone who dares call them out for the crimes.  Remember that they have the spear, not the shield.  The word "Islamaphobia" is oftentimes heard throughout the mainstream media, attempting to put them into the position of the victim while doing their best to hide their crimes.  These people are not the victims, America, they are the perpetrators (Isaiah 5:20).  It is an attempt to cover for those that are now invading and attacking our system of Church-government by browbeating those who dare speak out into submission.  It is important for you to understand this.

Terror-Tied CAIR Candidate Event With Muslim Extremist Cenk Uygur Shut Down.  This is so good, I watched it twice.  For far too long Islamic supremacists and their leftist lapdogs have shut down, shouted down, or canceled our events.  This is pushback and it is good.  Cenk Uygur is a long time radical who has used his platform for years to make offensive statements about women, Jews, and blacks.  He is so toxic Bernie Sanders retracted his endorsement of Uygur's candidacy.

Radical Muslims Who Raise Funds for Ilhan Omar Demand the Overturning of Texas Refugee Ban.  Ten pro-refugee groups, led by the infamous Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), are calling for the year-long ban on refugee resettlement in Texas to be overturned.  "Today, we have a large multifaith, multicultural group of people coming together ... to stand united to let the world know that Texas welcomes refugees of all backgrounds," said Faizan Syed, executive director of the Texas DFW chapter of CAIR, during last week's joint press conference.  "And that we unequivocally condemn and stand against the governor's decision to not allow refugees to come to our great state," he added.

Democrats and Radical Islamists Start False Rumor Trump Is Detaining Iranian-Americans.  CAIR, the Islamic good with dubious ties to bad people, started a rumor in Washington, DC that Customs and Border Patrol agents were detaining Iranian-Americans at the border.  Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee then tweeted out "People of Iranian descent — including American citizens & green card holders — are reportedly being detained by CPB officials.  We can't let this stand."  Naturally, thousands of people recirculated the accusation forcing Customs and Border Patrol to step in with its own tweet to deny it.  But by then, it had taken on a life of its own.  And it remains false.

Hey, CAIR, don't hold your breath.  Designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) from which the FBI cut all ties several years ago, is demanding an FBI investigation of an online death threat targeting CAIR Executive Director, Nihad Awad.

Here Are the 'Courageous' Leaders Honored by CAIR.  "Courage Under Fire" was the theme of this year's banquet held by the Los Angeles branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  Those "courageous leaders" under fire included featured speakers:
  •   Pennsylvania State Representative Movita Johnson-Harrell, accused of stealing $500,000 from a charity fund
  •   Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, an anti-Semite who supports the eradication (violent, if necessary) of the state of Israel
  •   CAIR-LA executive director Hussam Ayloush, a Muslim Brotherhood and avid Hamas supporter
  •   Law professor and comedian Amer Zahr, who proudly serenaded Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh and compares Israel to ISIS and describes the Jews of Israel as white supremacists[.]

Designated terrorist group CAIR's "Greatest Hit Pieces".  Keep pressuring President Trump to designate CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and its parent company — the Muslim Brotherhood — a terrorist organization, as several Arab Muslim nations have done.  [Video clip]

CAIR Pennsylvania Poster Girl Resigns in Shame.  Movita Johnson-Harrell seemed to take pride in her position as the first Muslim woman elected to the Pennsylvania State Legislature.  Now that record will forever have an asterisk next to it as Johnson-Harrell has turned herself in to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro's Office, pleading guilty on charges of perjury, record tampering, and embezzling over $500,000 in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds, as well as donations to Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she established to allegedly serve the mentally ill and drug addicted poor in her predominately African-American neighborhood.  In a press conference, Attorney General Shapiro described Johnson-Harrell's actions as "brazen corruption... her theft knew no bounds."

Is it Time to Designate CAIR as a Terrorist Organization?  CAIR's mission is "to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding."  Yet, as detailed at length by the Center for Security Policy, since its founding in 1993, CAIR has presented itself publicly as a benign Muslim American "civil rights organization."  But from that time to this, the United States government has known that CAIR actually is an entity founded by the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestinian franchise:  Hamas, a group officially designated since 1994 as a terrorist organization.  Evidence of CAIR's true character as a U.S.-based instrument for political warfare and fundraising for Hamas — and the federal government's certain knowledge of the truth — did not come to light until the largest terrorism financing trial in the nation's history:  the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation prosecution.  In the course of that trial, FBI Agent Laura Burns testified about the wiretap and surveillance transcripts of two planning sessions held in Philadelphia in October 1993 and leading up to the organizational meeting of CAIR.

Omar Celebrates Islamist Electoral Wins with U.S. MB Supporters.  For many members of Congress, weekends are spent returning to their home districts to keep in touch with constituents.  For U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the weekend of Nov. 8 was devoted to embracing some of the country's most prominent and problematic Islamists.  She helped the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) raise money by speaking at its annual fundraising banquet Nov. 9.  The next day, she attended a brunch in the home of Esam Omeish, one of the country's most influential Islamist activists.  Campaign finance data posted by shows that nearly 87 percent of Omar's 2020 campaign contributions have come from donors outside of her district.  American Islamists were well represented in her 2018 campaign war chest.

Here's a List of 100 Members of Congress Supporting CAIR.  Ahead of the Council of American-Islamic Relations' 25th Anniversary Gala event last Saturday, the Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization boasted that "120+" members of Congress had sent them letters of support.  We never saw those letters, however, thanks to Clarion reader Viola Rose, we were directed to a list of 100 members of Congress who voiced their support of CAIR in 2018.  The list was published by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, along with the letters of support.  The list includes Democrat presidential candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar.  Ninety-seven out of the 100 names on the list were Democrats; three were Republican.

The Democrats and CAIR.  In 2018, Democratic lawmakers and a few Republicans openly supported the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), congratulating the organization on its 24th year of operation.  Furthermore, sixteen likely Democrat presidential candidates are endorsing CAIR.  For instance, "Elizabeth Warren sent in a video message threatening to cut off aid to Israel unless it surrenders to Islamic terrorists.  Then she promised to divide Jerusalem, turning half the ancient holy city into a killing ground for the murderous terrorists already occupying Gaza and portions of the West Bank."  Thus, the majority of the 2020 Democrat presidential field have aligned with CAIR, an anti-American and anti-Israel organization.  Moreover, it is now patently clear that the "Democratic party's celebration of Linda Sarsour... exposes the poison" that has enveloped the party.

Religious foundation secretly recruiting spies for Iran, funding terrorism, report says.  A supposed Iranian religious foundation is in fact secretly funding terrorism and spies, such as the recruitment of former Air Force intelligence specialist Monica Witt, who defected to Iran in 2013 with valuable security secrets, a dissident group is claiming in a new report.  The Astan-e Quds Razavi (AQR) foundation promotes its work as maintaining Shiite Muslim shrines and promoting the spread of Islam.  Iranian state media regularly send out stories on AQR's benign deeds abroad.  But a new report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran contends the foundation actually funds groups such as Lebanese Hezbollah movement, which the U.S. government calls a terrorist organization.  The AQR Foundation also sets up international conferences and invites foreign visitors who are targeted for recruitment as possible spies "without attracting any attention or being held accountable," the 15-page NCRI report states.  This, the report says, is how Iran found Ms. Witt.

France: Muslims enter church during Mass, scream "Allahu akbar".  The faithful were "taken aback."  How "Islamophobic" of them!  Apparently the English-language establishment media's full-court press a few years ago to convince Americans that "Allahu akbar" was a benign phrase didn't get echoed in the French establishment media.  In the New York Daily News[,] Zainab Chaudry of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued that non-Muslims shouldn't "believe the worst" about "Allahu akbar" because Muslims don't just scream it while murdering non-Muslims, but use it in a variety of contexts.  She even offered this chilling advice, certain to get people killed were it ever heeded:  "So the next time you hear Allahu Akbar — whether it's in a media report, on an airplane, or in a shopping mall, remember that the phrase used by millions of Muslims and Christians daily to praise God regardless of their circumstances, can never be justified for use when harming His creation."  So stay put, evidently; fleeing would be "Islamophobic."

How Bernie Sanders became a favorite among Muslim Americans.  "Sanders has taken an active role in elevating Muslim communities and Muslim spokespersons in the national presidential debate," said Robert McCaw, director of the government affairs department at the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  "He's not shy in going into Muslim spaces publicly and endorsing our issues and making them a part of the campaign."

Trump's Mar-a-Lago banned event because CAIR, SPLC, leftist media called it 'extreme'.  ACT for America, a nationwide grassroots group that educates the public about radical Islam, was founded in 2007 by my vigilant activist friend and Lebanese Christian immigrant journalist Brigitte Gabriel.  I was honored to accept Gabriel's invitation to speak at her organization's annual banquet at Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, on Nov. 7.  Gabriel has worked tirelessly to expose the Islamic imperialist agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic state; barbaric practices of female genital mutilation and honor killings by adherents of sharia; and the whitewashing of violent jihad in American middle school textbooks. [...] I planned to talk to ACT for America's gala attendees about the ongoing national security threat that jihad-coddling Muslim grievance groups and other identity politics agitators in the "Open Borders, Inc." infrastructure pose to our country's very existence.  But thanks to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Council on American Islamic Relations, Miami Herald, copycat journalists and the Trump Organization, the event was banned from Mar-a-Lago.

CAIR and the Rabbis.  As anti-Semitism grows in America, synagogue safety has become an urgent concern for most American Jewish leaders.  Not so, it would seem, for the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis (MBR).  Recently, MBR joined forces with the Hamas front group CAIR (the Council on American Islamic Relations) to picket the Ahavath Torah Congregation in the South Shore town of Stoughton for hosting speakers whom CAIR calls "anti-Muslim hate group leaders."  The scare campaign ended up working.  The synagogue had to permanently shut down its speaker series after CAIR and MBR publicized the synagogue's address on social media.  The synagogue's rabbi, Jonathan Hausman, got death threats and was forced to hire security guards for his family.

The Goal is 5,000 American Muslims Running for Office in 2020.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is a designated terror group and unindicted conspirator in the largest terror fund raising crime in US history, was the goal setter.  Imraan Siddiqi, who is the Executive Director of CAIR, started CAIR-AZ's HateHurts project, which has become a means of propaganda to allegedly track and document the non-existent "Islamophobia" and its fallout on many communities but fails to report on fake hate crimes Muslims commit against themselves, took to Twitter earlier this year to state CAIR's goals.  "We need like 5,000 Muslims to run for office this next cycle to short-circuit the bigots' power-grid," Saddiqi tweeted.

Women's March Votes In New Leader, Ousts Her Days Later After Extreme Comments Emerge.  Just days after appointing her, the Women's March, which has come under fire for the anti-Semitism of its past leaders, was forced to remove its newest board member, Zahra Billoo, for extreme statements she made on social media.  Billoo responded by posting a lengthy thread on Twitter denouncing the group and blaming her removal on an "Islamophobic smear campaign."

Anti-Israel Activist Voted Off Women's March Board After Two Days.  Zahra Billoo, who has been outspoken about her hatred of Israel and Memorial Day, was voted off the board of the Women's March Wednesday night after serving only two days.  Billoo, the executive director of the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, took to Twitter early Thursday [9/19/2019] to announce the Women's March severed ties with her.  In her 25-tweet thread, she blames an "Islamophobic smear campaign" and "right-wingers" for the scrutiny she and her colleagues have received.

Irony: CAIR Successfully Pressures Church to Cancel 'Is Michigan Surrendering to Islam?' Event.  Eighteen years after the September 11 jihad attacks that murdered nearly three thousand people, this is where we are:  the Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church in Michigan has canceled an event called "9/11 forgotten?  Is Michigan surrendering to Islam" under pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.  And so the answers are clear:  yes, 9/11 has been forgotten, and Michigan is indeed surrendering to Islam.  The event was to feature an ex-Muslim, Shahram Hadian, speaking on "How the Interfaith Movement is Sabotaging America and the Church" and economist and investigative reporter Jim Simpson discussing "How Islam is Destroying America from Within."  The event will go on tonight [9/11/2019] as a webinar, but it will not take place at the church, [...]

Bernie Sanders Attends ISNA Convention With Islamists Who Backed Killing Gay People.  When ISNA, an Islamic group accused of supporting terrorists, announced a presidential forum for ISNACON 2019, the expectations were low.  The Islamic Society of North America had been created by Muslim Brotherhood members and was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas Holy Land Foundation trial.  And even if the 2020 Democrats were willing to overlook the minor matter of murdering Jews, which they usually are, Muzammil Siddiqi, ISNA's former president who chairs its Fiqh Council, which dispenses Islamic sharia law, has assented to the death penalty for homosexuality.

This Court Ruling On Terrorism Watch List Should Spell Doom For Red Flag Laws.  A federal judge ruled on Wednesday [9/4/2019] that the so-called "terror watch list," a list of persons both citizen and non-citizen that now encompasses some 1.9 million names, is unconstitutional.  The case involved 23 Muslims who happened to be American citizens.  They had been placed on the watch list and their presence their greatly curtailed their ability to travel or to even open a banking account. [...] Now, in fairness to the government, the very fact that CAIR filed the lawsuit indicates that one or more of the 23 might very well be a terrorist sympathizer as CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in two US terrorism trials, it has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and has been declared a terrorist organization by at least one nation.

CAIR Declares 'Complete Victory' After Judge Rules Terror Watch List Violates Constitutional Rights.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has hailed as a "complete victory" a federal judge's ruling that the U.S. government's watchlist of "known or suspected terrorists" violates the constitutional rights of Americans named on it.  Judge Anthony Trenga of the Eastern District of Virginia ruled Wednesday [9/4/2019] that the FBI-administered watchlist, formally known as the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), "fails to provide constitutionally sufficient procedural due process."  He has yet to order any remedies, but called for additional legal briefs from the parties within 30 days on "the outstanding issues to be resolved in this matter."

The Editor says...
The terror watch list is a lot like the Red Flag laws now being proposed by many on the Left, with the main difference being the amount of tangible evidence available to support one's suspicions of persons added to the list.  Even so, the terror watch list has its flaws.

Are American Voters Helpless?  Just ask yourself, why is the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliate like the Council on Islamic American Relations (CAIR) have not been placed on the list of terrorist organizations?  Most of us know that Islamic law is practiced in some parts of the U.S. and we know that Sharia law is incompatible with our laws and the U.S. Constitution.  Again, nothing has been done to stop it in its tracks!  Islam, like Communism, Nazism, and other isms, is ideological to its core.  It still retains its poisonous ideological connection with Nazism and the Arabic version of Hitler's Mein Kampf and its fictitious propaganda. [...] We are about to lose America's identity and freedom without even noticing it and our own elected officials are either ignorant or play the political correctness game.  We aren't even allowed to name the enemy that is Islam.

Angry Muslim voters clamor for Democrats' attention at annual conference.  Angry Muslim American voters are tired of being ignored by the Democratic Party's presidential candidates — even though they make up a fast-growing source of Democrat votes.  Only two of the party's White House contenders, Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro, agreed to speak at Saturday's ]8/31/2019] presidential forum at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) which has drawn 30,000 attendees to Houston, Tex. this weekend.  But a dozen Dems, along with President Donald Trump, were invited, organizers said.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Mother of Islamist Terror Groups.  When the average American hears the term "radical Islamists" or thinks "terrorism," the first notion that comes to mind is groups like Al Qaeda, ISIS, Taliban, or Hamas.  In reality, the world's wholesale terror producer is none of the above, is headquartered in Jordan, works hand-in-hand with the monarchy there, and has evil tentacles that stretch across the globe wherever democracy and free choice thrive.  Named the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), they are the quintessential terrorist organization, and are evil by sheer definition — they, strike fear into the hearts of man.

Bernie Sanders And Julian Castro Speaking At Terrorist-Linked Islamist Org's Conference.  Per the Clarion Project, a pair of Democrats running for their party's presidential nomination has agreed to speak at the convention of an Islamist group tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.  The pair Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro will be participating in a "presidential forum" held by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) during its convention in Houston on August 31, 2019.  Sanders and Castro, are apparently unaware of or don't care that ISNA has been linked to terrorism by the U.S. Government and that some US-based terrorists have emerged from ISNA.

Beware Islamists Bearing Gifts.  he federal government shutdown at the beginning of the year created some pressing problems for tens of thousands of Americans, many of whom were forced to go without work, transportation, or paychecks.  In response, many nonprofit organizations in the D.C. area and across the country stepped in, providing charitable resources for federal employees and those dependent on them.  But such programs sometimes had more than one purpose: not only to do good, but also to publicize the goodness of the programs' architects.  Islamist groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) were quick to promote their charitable efforts during the shutdown, which included an initiative by half a dozen CAIR branches to distribute lunches to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents.

CAIR Islamophobia Report:  A First-Class Fraud.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has jumped in on the effort to paint its opponents as "Islamophobes," the latest twist in the Left's never-ending effort to smear opponents with names like "racist," "xenophobe," etc.  And while this repulsive strategy makes a mockery of the First Amendment and has reduced American political dialogue to infantile, elementary school name-calling, its true goal is to marginalize, deplatform and defund its opponents, especially those that pose a threat to its subversive agenda.  This paper exposes for all to see, just how transparently dishonest and hypocritical CAIR and its allies in the Red-Green Axis truly are in this their latest "Islamophbia" report, and links them to the worldwide effort of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to impose blasphemy laws against anyone who would speak ill of any aspect of Islam.

Ecumenical Islamism.  On May 29, 2019, the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Association for Spiritual Renewal (ASR) co-hosted a "Know Your Rights" seminar on "civil rights at the border, at home, and when stopped by the police."  Despite the ostensibly progressive causes championed by the seminar, one of the main speakers was Usama Abdulghani, head of the ASR.  A closer look at Abdulghani's past lectures raises questions, once again, about CAIR's ties to fundamentalists and its commitment to women and minorities' rights.

Dallas Muslim Brotherhood supporters openly mourn Morsi's death.  Valley Ranch Islamic Center, where both [Yaser] Birjas and Omar Suleiman are affiliated, has a long history of Islamist ties, including financial ties to the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), a group identified by a federal judge as having "ample evidence" of ties to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and the terror group Hamas.  These Dallas Muslim leaders were joined by other Islamist leaders across the country in revealing their support for the Muslim Brotherhood on the occasion of [Mohamed] Morsi's death.  Yet despite the public willingness of these Islamists to openly declare their affinity for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the media too often treats those who merely notice their affinities as somehow motivated by hate or bias.

Mohammed Morsi dead after passing out in Egypt court.  Morsi has spent over five years in prison after the current president of Egypt, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, ousted him in a coup and then arrested him.  El-Sisi was Morsi's military chief at the time and rescued the country from his authoritarian rule.  Morsi would have been put to death a long time ago, but I think that proved too difficult since Morsi had so many supporters, including Erdogan, the president of Turkey, who is also Muslim Brotherhood.

Report: Former Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Leader Mohamed Morsi Dies in Court.  Mohamed Morsi was Egypt's leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, supported by President Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, and installed as Egyptian president by extremists during the Islamist Spring.  According to Reuters Morsi collapsed in court today [6/17/2019] and died.

US Army War College Surrenders to CAIR.  The U.S. Army War College (USAWC) has just surrendered to the demands of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — an "unindicted co-conspirator," to quote the U.S. Dept. of Justice, in the largest terror funding case in American history.  The June 19, 2019 planned lecture on my book, Sword and Scimitar:  Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle Barracks was canceled due to a CAIR-induced hysteria that focused on presenting me — a native Arabic speaker of Egyptian/Middle Eastern descent — as a "racist" and "white nationalist" who is out to incite American soldiers to murder Muslims.

CAIR is Hamas.  Among the massive amount of evidence entered into the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history — US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Northern District of Texas (Dallas) 2008 — is a volume of evidence which definitively identifies CAIR as an organization established in 1994 by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's "Palestine Committee" which is Hamas in America.  CAIR receives/received funds from other Hamas entities and organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda.  In fact, a document retrieved from CAIR headquarters reveals internal discussions at CAIR to support Osama bin Laden.  While CAIR bills itself as a "Muslim civil rights" organization, the evidence does not support this and, in fact, demonstrates it operates as a Hamas entity.  Hamas is a terrorist organization.

Radical Islamic Group Celebrates 25 Years Of Washington Infiltration.  Watchdog groups continue to sound the alarm on Islamic terror fronts operating in the U.S.  [Video clip]

Islamism and Immigration:  A New Front for Troublemaking.  Recently, Islamist groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have opened up a new field of activity.  Going beyond lobbying against the Trump administration's "Muslim ban" and caps on refugee admittance, CAIR and its allies have enthusiastically jumped into the larger fight for open immigration in general, becoming involved in many protests focused on the U.S.-Mexican border.  For example, CAIR-San Diego held a "Prayer Beyond Borders" event "to pray for peace and justice in the borderlands," and CAIR National was one of the sponsors for a series of Mother's Day rallies "to call for [an] end to immigrant family separation [and] child detention."

The Domestic Insurgency of the Islamic Movement.  As the 2020 election cycle gets underway with candidates announcing presidential campaigns and respective platforms, the Muslim Brotherhood agenda for the United States demonstrably seeks through subversive infiltration of American institutions the triumph of shariah.  The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a political umbrella group for the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, represents a leading edge of the jihadist movement in this country.  While the USCMO seeks to cloak itself in red, white, and blue, it is only for the purpose of accomplishing what can aptly be described as "Star Spangled Shariah".  The 'Civilization-Jihadist Process' set in motion by the Muslim Brotherhood decades ago now has been operationalized to specifically political objectives through the establishment of the USCMO.  The formation of the USCMO in 2014 marked the first U.S. Muslim Brotherhood political party, and indeed the first religious identity political party, in the history of this country.

Deception Dominates ICNA Co-Sponsored "Inventing Terrorists" Report.  As IPT Senior Fellow Patrick Dunleavy noted Friday, the Islamic Circle of North America has helped update a report on terrorist prosecutions in the United States which claims more than 9 in 10 cases involving Muslim suspects are bogus.  "Many convicted Muslims were sentenced to long years in prison for doing essentially nothing," says the report, which is entitled "Inventing Terrorists."  "The study shows that the war on terror has been largely a charade designed to make the American public believe that a terrorist army is loose in the U.S., when the truth is that most of the people convicted of terrorism-related crimes posed no danger to the U.S. and were entrapped by a preventive strategy known as preemptive prosecution."  The report, which covers prosecutions through 2015, is so shoddy and superficial that it cannot be taken seriously.  Even when it acknowledges a threat from radicalized Muslims, it minimizes that threat and, in two cases, simply pretends attacks didn't happen.

CAIR-Pittsburgh Staffer Wonders if ISIS is a Zionist Plot.  So numerous are the instances of anti-Semitism from the employees of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that it can be tough to keep up at times.  But, we're glad we found this one, because rarely do they provide such amusement.  We've covered the outrageous anti-Semitism of Zohra Lasania, lone staff member of CAIR's Pittsburgh branch, before. [...] This time, having seen the shocking news in an online Azerbaijani paper, Lasania wonders if ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi is, in fact, a "Jewish Mossad Agent."  The article she posted claims (without a shred of proof, naturally) that al Baghdadi is actually a Jewish man called Elliot Simon, who "was recruited by the Israeli Mossad and was trained in espionage and psychological warfare against Arab and Islamic societies."

NYT: Trump 'Siding with Autocrats' by Weighing Terror Label for Muslim Brotherhood.  U.S. President Donald Trump's administration would be "siding with autocrats and roiling [the] Middle East" if it joins several Islamic countries in designating the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) a terrorist organization, the New York Times (NYT) argued this week. NYT has itself in the past sided with several leftist leaders including Russia's Joseph Stalin in lying about the Soviet genocide; with Cuba's Fidel Castro in inflating the size of his guerrilla prior to the Cuban Revolution; and taking money for ads from socialist Nicolás Maduro's regime.

It's Getting Difficult To Tell The Difference Between The New York Times And Al Jazeera.  Whether the Muslim Brotherhood's many disparate groups and organizations meet the criteria of a single terror organization under U.S. law is debatable, but what isn't debatable is that a large faction of the Muslim Brotherhood leads a Sunni movement that aims to implement sharia law under a global caliphate.  Its deep network of "charitable" institutions and political parties form an infrastructure for extremist causes.  One could, if not a New York Times writer, describe its philosophy as dogmatic, illiberal, theocratic, and violent; and its "storied" history a long-term threat to secularism, Muslim reformers, liberalism, Christians, and Jews in the Middle East.  These days, members of the Muslim Brotherhood advocate for child suicide bombings, political assassinations, mass murder of minorities, violent mobs — basically the entire deadly menu of jihadist activities.  This is context that Times readers would not learn.

White House to designate Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organisation.  The Trump administration is working to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organisation, the White House said on Tuesday [4/30/2019].  The designation will bring economic and travel sanctions against Egypt's oldest Islamist movement, with more than a million members across the Middle East.

Pearls Are Clutched As Trump Seeks To Designate Muslim Brotherhood A Terrorist Group.  Remember, it was the Muslim Brotherhood who formed the basis of the disastrous "Arab Spring," which the Obama administration helped foment. [...] The Muslim Brotherhood are violent Islamists that try to hide behind a moderate facade.  The very basis of their political ideology requires inhumane force from the top down.  To suggest they aren't violent is some hilarious gaslighting.  CNN should also probably mention that Morsi was overthrown in Egypt because he was trying to make himself a dictator and had begun to violently attack protestors.  That's typically what happens when you elected Muslim Brotherhood members who want to live under sharia law.

Making Rep. Ilhan Omar a Victim.  Rep. Omar provoked a reaction when she gave a talk to the Council of American-Islamic Relations last week.  That CAIR is a Hamas front, that it is a leading force in the drive to blame Jews for the failures of Arabs, does not register.  Nor do the many absurdist idiots that want us to believe that the trouble with the reputation of Islam lies in the minds of the Islamophobes.  If only they could exercise complete mind control over the way other people see them, then all would be well in the Muslim world.  Serious Muslims know that this is idiocy, but it has not reached the pea brain of Ilhan Omar.

How and Why Hamas Founded CAIR.  Ilhan Omar's Los Angeles CAIR speech — the one that has attracted the current attention — gives the received CAIR origin fable that is recited as fact by the mainstream media outlets.  I mean the one that serves up CAIR as a civil rights organization. [...] NR published an adapted excerpt from McCarthy's The Grand Jihad in 2014 as "The roots of CAIR's intimidation campaign."  Everyone should know this story.  Those who recite the received version of the origin story are either willfully blind or, like Omar, complicit with CAIR.

The Roots of CAIR's Intimidation Campaign.  In 1994, less than a year after the Philadelphia Hamas meeting, the Islamists unleashed their new organization:  the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  Just as the Palestine Committee by-laws had foretold, CAIR sprang from the womb of IAP and set up its headquarters in the nation's capital.  Actually, CAIR was already in existence and firmly in the Brotherhood fold even before its incorporation was announced.  We know that because, in preparing for a meeting held on July 30, 1994, the Palestine Committee prepared a written agenda that was later seized by the FBI.  It stated that a top discussion topic would be "suggestions to develop work" for several named "organizations."  Included among these was "CAIR," in addition to the IAP and HLF, among others.  The agenda elucidated that "complete coordination" was sought among the various groups.  Critically, it stressed that the effort was under Brotherhood direction:  "This is not a separate movement from the mother Group." [...] Ghassan Elashi — Marzook's aforementioned brother-in-law who was eventually convicted of funding Hamas in the Holy Land Foundation case — came aboard as the founding director of CAIR's Texas chapter.  As Steve Emerson has shown, $5,000 in seed money for CAIR came from the HLF — whose assets were finally frozen in 2001 based on the U.S. Treasury Department's conclusion that it provided "millions of dollars annually that is used by HAMAS."

Hey Ilhan Omar, 9/11 was about Muslims waging Jihad on America.  Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is facing outrage from Americans after she described the Muslim terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 as "some people did something."  Omar delivered the callous remarks at a Council on American-Islamic Relations calling upon other Muslim Americans to "make people uncomfortable" with their activism and presence in the society and criticized the Jewish state, Fox News reported.  Conservatives were quick to denounce the congresswoman's whitewashing of that terrible day.

Truly Awful People.  Ilhan Omar, the well-known anti-Semite and freshman Democratic Congresswoman, makes the list this week, in part for her declaration that "Stephen Miller is a white nationalist." Miller is Jewish, which might have something to do with Omar's hatred of him, so proclaiming him a "white nationalist" is particularly hilarious.  Not that she'd let something like reality bother her.  But it's not just her Tourette's-like radar for hating Jews, but the casual way in which she referred to the September 11th terror attacks.  "Some people did something," she told a group at a Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.  It's hard to say what they did, or why, but know that these random people woke up one morning and decided to do whatever it was they did and, as a result, "all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties," she told the group. [...] She doesn't mention which civil liberties she and her audience lost, mostly because there aren't any, but she thinks she's the real victim in all this "something" that happened.

CAIR Stumped by Activist Gary Fouse.  Last weekend, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar attended a series of fundraisers and spoke at a CAIR banquet in Southern California.  She was met by a crowd outside that venue who were vocal about Omar's anti-Semitism.  Among the protesters was Gary Fouse, a former adjunct teacher at the University of California, Irvine (UCI).  Fouse is also a veteran blogger who has tracked anti-Semitism at UCI. After stumping the CAIR representative about what classifies as Jew-hatred, Fouse shared about his personal experience with CAIR-Los Angeles and why he, as a non-Jew, was out protesting with other Jews.

Heavy Protests Against Ilhan Omar Speech at Los Angeles CAIR Event.  A large protest was held outside the Hilton hotel in Los Angeles where Ilhan Omar will be speaking Saturday night at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles's fourth annual Valley Banquet.  The protesters lined the sidewalks waving Israeli and American flags and held up signs saying "Omar equals hate" and various other slogans, supporting Israel and denouncing Omar.  Protesters staying at the Hilton hotel waved large banners saying "CAIR hates Jews" and "Ilhan hates Israel" from their balconies. [...] CAIR has a long history of affiliation with the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah.  CAIR members have often defended the actions of Hamas in Gaza.

Rep. Ilhan Omar faces hundreds of protesters outside CAIR fundraiser in California.  U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar faced hundreds of protesters Saturday outside a Southern California fundraising event for the local chapter of a major advocacy group representing Muslim-Americans.  "Burn the Quran!," "Ilhan Omar, go to hell!" and "Shame on you, terrorists!" were among some of the messages shouted outside a Woodland Hills hotel where the Minnesota Democrat spoke at a fundraiser for the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles, according to a report.  The town is about 25 miles northwest of downtown L.A.

CAIR's dirty deeds.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations is having a banner month.  The militant Muslim group never lets a crisis go to waste.  That means Americans should beware.  When unappeasable CAIR is ascendant, our free speech rights, religious liberty and national security are at risk.  Following the horrible massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, CAIR flacks were out in full force decrying "Islamophobia" and calling for crackdowns on "hate speech" (by which they mean any and all negative thoughts or words about CAIR or Islam).  CAIR executive director Nihad Awad was first out of the gate to blame President Donald Trump; target Fox News hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson, whom the left wants to silence; and renew opposition to White House efforts to tighten our immigration and entrance policies, including the travel ban affecting terror-sponsoring countries upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Levin: 'Why don't the media honestly tell us about CAIR?'.  ["]The FBI seized a Muslim Brotherhood document in 2004 that laid out its plan to overtake the West.  The plan consisted of five phases.  One:  the secret establishment of leadership.  Two: the gradual appearance on the public scene.  Phase two calls for infiltrating various sectors of government, gaining religious institutions, gaining public support and sympathy, and establishing a shadow government.  These are quotes.  Three:  escalation phase.  Focusing on utilizing mass media.  The document says that this stage is currently in progress.["]

American Muslim Group Calls for Advertisers to Drop Fox News Unless Jeanine Pirro, Tucker Carlson Are Fired.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling on all advertisers to drop Fox News until the network fires hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson due to comments by both hosts that the civil rights group called "Islamophobic."  "Fox News must clearly state that Jeanine Pirro will not be allowed back on the air after her long history of Islamophobic hate rhetoric and the network must also take similar action against other Islamophobic hosts like Tucker Carlson," CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement.  "All existing advertisers should drop their ads on Fox News to ensure that they are not associated with the promotion of hate."

16 Likely Democratic Presidential Candidates Endorse CAIR.  Sixteen likely candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 have endorsed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization identified by the Justice Department as an "entity" of the Muslim Brotherhood linked to pro-Hamas operations in the U.S.  The information can be found in CAIR's own lists of supporters and a list of 100 pro-CAIR members of Congress released by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.  CAIR and other Islamist groups use quotes from supporters, many of which presumably are unaware of the group's background, to present itself as an authoritative leader of the Muslim-American community.  The statements are essential for building influence in politics, government, law enforcement, media and culture.  They are also important for fundraising and convincing Muslim-Americans to follow CAIR's lead.

Ammar Campa-Najjar:  Black September grandson and CAIR's candidate in California.  Ammar Campa-Najjar is flooding the airwaves in Southern California and getting lots of warm, friendly press coverage.  The left-wing Democratic candidate, who claims to be a moderate, is seeking to topple now indicted Republican Duncan Hunter, who most certainly has made a hash of his own prospects.  Any mention of Campa-Najjar's rather spectacular terrorist heritage (Grandpa was a top leader of the extremely gruesome Black September terrorist massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics) is brushed off as not his circus, not his monkeys, something he's repudiated, and in any case, something he's far from, given that he's 29, never met the guy (who was rubbed out by Israeli commandos), and claims to have been raised Catholic.  For this, he's always given an easy pass by the press as his TV ads roll on and on and on, obviously the effect of a large campaign war chest.

Ammar Campa-Najjar's Questionable Campaign.  Running for Congress in California's 50th district against Duncan Hunter Jr., Ammar Campa-Najjar has been described as a working-class progressive, a "Latino Arab-American," and a "Palestinian-Mexican."  Though he has been described and describes himself many things, "transparent" is not one of them.  So it came as a shock when it was revealed that Campa-Najjar's grandfather was Abu Yousef al-Najjar — the "leader and operational head" of Black September, a notorious Palestinian terrorist cell.

CAIR official exposed as avowed Hamas supporter.  A senior official of the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) who spoke last week at an event celebrating the election of three Muslim members of Congress is an avowed supporter of the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas.  Jinan Shbat (who goes by "Jinan Deena" on Twitter), CAIR's national outreach manager, tweeted her support for the Palestinian terrorist group in June, expressing her preference for Hamas over the Palestinian Authority, which governs the Palestinian areas of the disputed West Bank.

Amazon removes 'offensive' products containing Islamic text.  Doormats featuring verses from the Quran were promptly removed from Amazon last week.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations complained to Amazon on Jan. 3 about more than a dozen bathroom and outdoor mats, which carried verses and the word Allah in Islamic calligraphy.  "CAIR received complaints about the items, which are offensive to Muslims because the Quranic verses would be stepped on or otherwise disrespected by customers," the advocacy group said in a statement.

Complaints prompt Amazon to remove products that are offensive to Muslims.  Amazon has pulled more than a dozen products off its website after receiving complaints that the items are offensive to Muslims.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, asked the online retailer last week to remove the products, which included doormats, bath mats and other items imprinted with Islamic calligraphy, references to the Prophet Muhammad and scripture.

The Inside Story of How John Kerry Secretly Lobbied to Get CAIR Removed From UAE's Terrorist Organization List.  On Nov. 16, 2014, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) took the unusual step of designating the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the Muslim American Society (MAS) — as terrorist organizations.  They were among 83 groups named for their connections to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.  This outraged CAIR officials, who immediately began efforts to get their organization removed from the list.  They found a powerful ally in Secretary of State John Kerry, who authorized State Department officials to meet regularly with UAE officials to lobby on behalf of CAIR and MAS.  CAIR already had a sympathetic ear in the Obama administration, including the State Department, that had openly embraced and legitimized the entire spectrum of radical Islamist groups falsely posing as religious or civil rights groups, which both CAIR and MAS had done.

CAIR Is Suing Texas — You'll Never Believe Why.  CAIR is suing Texas because it believes that Texas should be anti-Semitic — and the Lone Star state passed legislation that it's not.  That's quite an admission of its true colors on CAIR's part.  Yet today [12/17/2018], the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is announcing a lawsuit against the state of Texas for passing anti-BDS legislation last year.  BDS stands for the boycott, divest and sanction movement against Israel which aims to strangle the Jewish state economically while at the same time calls for the flooding of Palestinians into Israel to destroy the Jewish character of the state.  According to the definition of anti-Semitism by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance and officially adopted by the U.S. (and 31 other nations), the BDS movement has been deemed at its core an anti-Semitic movement.

Houston Mayor Creates Holiday To Honor CAIR.  In a stunning act of ignorance and stupidity, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner proclaimed an annual day to celebrate the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) by making December 9, 2018, "CAIR-TEXAS, Houston Day".

Texas Media Desperate to Defend Jihadis.  As if on cue, media across the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas launched an Information Operation to defend a muslim and attack citizens concerned about the Islamic threat to Texas and the nation.  Citizens and GOP leaders have raised questions about the Vice Chair of the Tarrant County (Texas) GOP, who is a muslim man named Dr. Shahid Shafi.  The media — as per their SOP — alleges bigotry and "Islamophobia," while simultaneously promoting the terrorist group Hamas doing business as CAIR.  Nashwa Bawab at the Dallas Observer attacked UTT President John Guandolo and Understanding the Threat, while applauding Hamas (dba CAIR) for calling on Tarrant County officials to cancel scheduled UTT training.  Similar stories ran in the Dallas Morning News (Sarah Sarder), the Fort Worth Star Telegram (Anna Tinsley), the Texas Observer (Gus Bova) and others, despite the fact UTT President John Guandolo directly contacted Tinsley and Bova with facts and evidence.  The media attacks citizens concerned about the Islamic Movements unthwarted assault on liberty while promoting Hamas terrorists from CAIR.

16 Likely Democratic Presidential Candidates Endorse CAIR.  Sixteen likely candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 have endorsed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization identified by the Justice Department as an "entity" of the Muslim Brotherhood linked to pro-Hamas operations in the U.S.  The information can be found in CAIR's own lists of supporters and a list of 100 pro-CAIR members of Congress released by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.  CAIR and other Islamist groups use quotes from supporters, many of which presumably are unaware of the group's background, to present itself as an authoritative leader of the Muslim-American community.

CAIR Official Mocks Muslims in U.S. Military After Praising Terrorists.  Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) official Zahra Billoo continues to judge Muslims who do not fall in line with her radical agenda.  Last week, reported that the U.S. Air Force formally granted Staff Sgt. Abdul Rahman Gaitan a religious waiver to don a beard in service.  Gaitan is the first Muslim airman to receive such an accommodation.  In response, Billoo mocked Muslims serving in the U.S. military, sarcastically tweeting:  "Great news, MashaAllah [according to God's will]. You can now rock your Sunnah beard while bombing your Muslim brothers and sisters."  Billoo, an attorney, leads CAIR's San Francisco-Bay area chapter.

Egyptian Paper Names 30 Brotherhood Operatives in U.S..  One of Egypt's most widely-read newspapers El-Watan has published a list of 30 alleged Muslim Brotherhood fronts and operatives in the U.S. that were tasked with winning public support for the Islamist group.  Citing unnamed "informed sources," journalist Ahmed al-Tahiri says the Muslim Brotherhood has a "lobby inside America."

Warning — The Jihad Assault in America — It's Hiding, Waiting:  Part 2.  We know that the war with radical Islam is ever waging against us.  Our overseas commitments are varied, seemingly long term, strong — and costly.  But the enemy is also ever present right here in the homeland.  Their operatives having already struck in Boston, Ft. Hood Texas, San Bernardino, CA and elsewhere.  Dr. Carl Goldberg is an expert on radical Islam, having made it his patriotic duty to educate Americans of the negative impact of the jihad against the Western world, and all non-Muslims.  In 2014 Dr. Goldberg was honored as one of America's leading "Islamophobes by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  He wears this title as a badge of honor when he's ask to give the countless speeches on Muslims in America.

Terror-linked CAIR reports at least 57 Muslims elected to local, state, and national positions.  In this historic election year, 49% of eligible voters voted in the first midterm election ever to have more than 100 million voters.  We haven't had a turnout percent this high since 1966, and you'd have to look all the way back to 1914 to find an election with more than 50% participation.  With some votes in GA, TX, and FL still being counted there's a chance this election will break that record.

Ammar Campa-Najjar:  Black September grandson and CAIR's candidate in California.  Ammar Campa-Najjar is flooding the airwaves in Southern California and getting lots of warm, friendly press coverage.  The left-wing Democratic candidate, who claims to be a moderate, is seeking to topple now indicted Republican Duncan Hunter, who most certainly has made a hash of his own prospects.  Any mention of Campa-Najjar's rather spectacular terrorist heritage (Grandpa was a top leader of the extremely gruesome Black September terrorist massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics) is brushed off as not his circus, not his monkeys, something he's repudiated, and in any case, something he's far from, given that he's 29, never met the guy (who was rubbed out by Israeli commandos), and claims to have been raised Catholic.  For this, he's always given an easy pass by the press as his TV ads roll on and on and on, obviously the effect of a large campaign war chest.

D.C. Federal Court:  CAIR Must Stand Trial for Consumer Fraud.  The United States District Court for the District of Columbia has denied a motion filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in a failed effort to eliminate the consumer fraud allegations in a massive fraud case set to go to trial early next year.

Who Is Linda Sarsour's Mentor?  Last year, Linda Sarsour addressed the 54th ISNA Convention.  Sarsour, who is one of the most prominent Muslim activists in America, was widely criticized for calling on Muslims to wage "jihad" against President Trump.  However, the most controversial remarks in her 22-minute speech came within the first two minutes when she gave a shout-out to her "favorite person in this room," radical imam Siraj Wahhaj, who Sarsour called her "mentor, motivator and encourager."  Recently, police raided an extremist Islamist compound in New Mexico where compound leaders were training children to become school shooters.  One of the leaders of this terrorist camp was none other than Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, son of Siraj Wahhaj.  Siraj Ibn Wahhaj also kidnapped his own physically disabled child — the child was later found dead due to being deprived of his medicine and an exorcism ritual.  Siraj Ibn Wahhaj attributed his son's condition to demonic possession.  Ibn Wahhaj's compound was not a complete aberration; there are other cultish Islamist encampments in the U.S.

The Gray Lady Once Again Sanitizes Radical Islam.  For many years now, the New York Times has sanitized radical Islamic groups, militant Islamic leaders and even Islamic terrorist attacks.  The paper has does this by deliberately omitting critical details that would discredit Islamist groups.  For example, the Times routinely describes the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) as either being a civil rights or a Muslim advocacy group.  In reality, CAIR was started as a front for Hamas and continues to serve as one.  But over the course of more than two decades, the Times has never reported on any of the many government documents and official transcripts that prove CAIR's role as a front group for Hamas.

Media Enables CAIR's Empty Entrapment Spin.  If you ask the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its media allies, terrorists ensnared by FBI sting operation are victims of entrapment; they're mentally ill; or both.  Media coverage, such as a recent Cleveland Plain Dealer article about a sting operation, reinforces this simplistic and inaccurate narrative.  A man charged with plotting an attack on an Independence Day parade is cast as a hopeless dupe, someone who only seemed threatening due to law enforcement's goading.  That's because evidence has shown that the defendants had already established an interest in doing harm before the FBI intervened.  CAIR concedes this point, but it attributes this to the "the climate of fear that permeates our post-9/11 world."  Sting operations "waste precious taxpayer dollars and take the agency away from the mission of protecting our nation by tracking and foiling actual terrorism and crime," CAIR's Los Angeles chapter argued in a 2009 press release.

Al-Qaeda Group Funded by Obama Admin Supported Bin Laden, Hamas, Afghan Terrorists.  The bombshell revelation on Wednesday that the Obama administration funded an al-Qaeda group in Sudan ten years after it was designated a foreign terrorist organization merely scratched the surface of what the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) stands accused of.  For a full account of the group that received $325,000 in U.S. taxpayer money in 2014 and 2015, we must turn to the U.S. Treasury Department documents Team Obama apparently did not bother to read.

Obama's Payout To Terror Financiers.  Islamic terrorists, whether affiliated with al Qaeda or the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, are enemies of the United States.  They have American blood on their hands.  The Obama administration aided and abetted these enemies by knowingly funding the terrorists and allowing them to evade the enforcement of U.S. law against them.  As Andrew McCarthy once wrote, Obama was an "anti-anti-terrorist."  For example, as the National Review has just reported, based on a discovery by the Middle East Forum, the Obama administration decided that an al Qaeda affiliate in Sudan was a worthy recipient of U.S. taxpayer funds to the tune of $200,000.  The beneficiary of the Obama administration's largesse, the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), also known as the Islamic African Relief Agency (IARA), had been designated by the U.S. Treasury as a terrorist-financing organization a decade earlier.  The Treasury Department's designation was based on ISRA's links to Osama bin Laden and his terrorist organization, financial support for the Taliban, and fundraising in Western Europe to help finance Hamas suicide bombings.

The Cancer That is the Islamic Society of North America.  The objective of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and their nearly 300 affiliates in the United States is to wage civilization jihad until an Islamic State under sharia (Islamic law) is established in America.  Established in the early 1980's as the next generation of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) — the first organization created by the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. — ISNA is, according to MB documents discovered by the FBI, the "nucleus" for the Islamic Movement in North America.  ISNA's By-Laws state its "Aims and Purposes" are:  "The aims and purposes of ISNA shall be to advance the cause of Islam and serve Muslims in North America so as to enable them to adopt Islam as a complete way of life."  Evidence in the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history — US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Northern District of Texas (Dallas) 2008 — reveal ISNA is not only a Muslim Brotherhood organization, it directly provides funding to the terrorist group Hamas and to Hamas leaders.

Muslim Leader:  America Must Understand Sharia Law is Greater Than the Constitution, Therefore Muslims are Above the Law.  The Director of the Dallas Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Mustafa Carroll, made a surprising and shocking statement during a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas.  He firmly believes that the message of the Qur'an is supreme over the United States constitution.  The statement would be shocking to most citizens of the United States, unless they had some perspective on who CAIR really is.  He said, "If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land."  CAIR is the nation's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization.  Their headquarters is located in Washington D.C.  They use lobbyists, the media, and action alerts to promote a positive image of Islam in America during a time when Radical Muslims (ISIS) in other parts of the world are crucifying children in the name of Allah, and quoting the Koran.

CAIR tries to shut down Bill Federer event in Iowa.  The Iowa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Iowa Chapter (CAIR-IA) is advising their members to shut down an event held by the Cedar Valley Patriots for Christ, referring to it as "hateful toward Islam and Muslims."  The event, according to the Facebook invitation, features "Author and Historian Bill Federer" who has intensely studied the Qur'an and Islam.  Cedar Valley Patriots for Christ founder Judd Saul, also the director of Trevor Loudon's films, told the author that his organization exists to "bring truth to the lies presented by the left."  He further stated that his group "will not be intimidated."

Michigan Candidate Warning : Muslim Brotherhood Exists!  They ARE a REAL Threat!  A Michigan Republican candidate, running for Governor stood up and told his constituents the Muslim Brotherhood is here, that they are a threat, how they are a threat, and why the state of Michigan is in trouble.  There is a Democrat candidate running against him in the primaries that according to many news sources, will be the likely Democrat candidate in the November race, with very questionable and dangerous ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

NBC's CAIR-Less Coverage.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) portrays itself as a U.S. civil rights organization.  However, as numerous terrorist analysts and the U.S. government itself has noted, CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2009 Holy Land Foundation (HLF) retrial — the largest terrorism financing case in the nation's history.  NBC, however, has treated the organization as a credible source on the subject of Islamic extremism.  In an April 23, 2018 article, "John Bolton presided over anti-Muslim think tank," NBC reporter Heidi Przybla used CAIR to attack Bolton, who is currently the National Security Adviser to President Donald Trump, and Gatestone Institute.

90 Years In, The Muslim Brotherhood Faces An Uncharted Future.  The Muslim Brotherhood has managed to weather many storms during nine decades in Egypt.  Presidents Gamal Abdel Nasser, Anwar Sadat and Hosni Mubarak all tried to contain and suppress the Islamist movement, which ultimately seeks a global Muslim Caliphate

If You Don't Know Abrogation You Don't Know Sharia.  One of the facets of sharia (Islamic Law) that turns the light bulb on in people's minds more than anything else seems to be the moment they grasp the Koranic concept of abrogation and progressive revelation. [...] Bringing greater sharia adherence to the world via jihad is the Muslim Brotherhood's entire focus of all they do, and the stated objective of all of the jihadi organizations on the planet.

ICNA-MAS in Baltimore:  A Meeting of Islamist Minds.  This weekend (March 30-April 1), for the fourth year running, the Baltimore Convention Center will host the joint convention of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS).  Alongside a cohort of prominent clerics will also be former Maryland governor and Baltimore mayor, Martin O'Malley, who just recently appeared on the confirmed speakers list.  Last April, the Baltimore Sun published a laudatory piece about the annual event.  The Sun's article glowingly describes how conference attendees handed out "blessing bags" of household necessities to needy families and fed hundreds of homeless on the streets of Baltimore.  But the Sun missed a crucial detail about ICNA-MAS in its report:  both ICNA and MAS are outgrowths of international Islamist movements.  Both groups use benevolent community involvement to provide cover for their continued practice of sponsoring extreme hate preachers and bigots.

Faith and Freedom Redefined at CAIR Banquet.  The slogan for last weekend's Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Philadelphia banquet, "Defending our freedom, living our faith," sounds like an innocuous promotion of all-American values.  Conference graphics were flanked by the Statue of Liberty and a minaret, while the event claimed to promote the peaceful intersection of the American and Islamic identities, featuring a former Obama adviser and a comedian for the adults and Mad Science and story time for the kids.  However, behind the event's playful, unassuming façade lay a sinister truth:  that CAIR and its banquet represent Islamist apologists.  The keynote speaker, Dalia Mogahed, is a former member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and is now the director of research at the Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU).  ISPU claims that it conducts "objective, solution-seeking research that empowers American Muslims to develop their community and fully contribute to democracy and pluralism in the United States."

San Diego Schools Ordered To Reveal Correspondence With Muslim Advocacy Group.  A federal judge ordered the San Diego Unified School District on Tuesday to hand over evidence detailing its correspondence with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) about the implementation of a controversial anti-Islamophobia bullying initiative at San Diego public schools.  The development is the latest in a long-running saga concerning school officials in San Diego coordinating with CAIR, an American-Muslim civil rights and religious organization with known links to a number of anti-Israel groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.  The controversy began in April when the San Diego school district announced it was launching an anti-Islamophobia initiative to combat what it described as a vast and underreported epidemic of anti-Muslim bullying in the district's schools.

Keith Ellison keynotes CAIR gala in NYC.  Over the weekend, Congressman Keith Ellison (who also serves as deputy chairman of the DNC) was the keynote speaker for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) New York chapter's annual gala.  CAIR was founded in the early '90s with the explicit goal of raising both financial and legislative support for the Hamas terrorist organization that now rules the Gaza Strip.  The group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing case in U.S. history.  It is now designated as a terrorist organization in the UAE.  The New York chapter of CAIR is one of the most extremist-connected entities of a national organization that positions itself as a civil rights group.  Quite a few CAIR-NY staffers and officials have in the past expressed support for Hamas and other fringe groups.

Florida Governor orders investigation of terror-tied CAIR Sheriff Scott Israel.  Back in 2015, I reported on the terror-tied CAIR Leader Nezar Hamze being appointed deputy sheriff by Sheriff Scott Israel.  The same Sheriff Israel whose department stood down and hid while children were being shot up in school by a psychopath.  Instead, Israel sanctioned CAIR sheriff Hamze teaching radical mosque how to use guns.

Muslim Brotherhood Non-Violent?  Think Again.  For those with any delusions that the Muslim Brotherhood is a non-violent group, the latest tweet by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood — the foundation of the international Islamist organization — will dispel those notions.  Shortly after an Israeli Arab stabbed to death a 29-year-old rabbi and father of four waiting at a bus stop in the West Bank, the official Twitter account of the Egyptian Brotherhood tweeted, "The killing of a Zionist settler as the result of a heroic stabbing operation in the West Bank," reported the Investigative Project on Terrorism.  The tweet came from the account titled Kafr Sheik Brotherhood.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation:  Serving Canada or Serving Islamists?  In practice, the CBC only respects sensibilities when it comes to Islamists such as ISIS or to those who attacked Charlie Hebdo.  When it comes to attacking Christians and Jews, the CBC exercises no such restraint.  The CBC also quotes organizations such as the National Council for Canadian Muslims, formerly known as CAIR CAN, which the CBC has referred to as a civil rights group.  But they failed to note that CAIR CAN was formed to support its parent organization, CAIR USA, which is a listed terrorist group in the United Arab Emirates.  It also does not mention that CAIR USA was formed in part by supporters of Hamas and that it has had multiple run-ins with terrorism financing.  Similarly, when supporting a variety of Islamist issues, the CBC quotes as a source the Canadian Council of Imams.  The CBC does not reveal, however, that the Vice President of the Council of Imams, Hakim Quick, believes that the position of Islam on homosexuality is death.  It also does not state that the "Emir" of the council is also the head of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).  The ICNA believes that Islam is not compatible with democracy, women are inferior and wife beating is permissible.

Christian university submits to terror-linked CAIR, cancels speakers critical of Islam.  A Tennessee university has canceled a Republican candidate for governor's summit amid criticisms that its speakers were anti-Muslim.

Atlanta Jail Lets Muslim Inmates Wear Hijabs, CAIR to Supply Them in Bulk for Free.  Caving into the demands of a terrorist front group, the City of Atlanta Detention Center in Georgia is allowing female Muslim inmates to wear a head scarf (hijab) used as a symbol of modesty in the Islamic dress code.  Hats and other head covers are banned in American state and federal prisons for security and safety reasons.  Making an exception to this rule to appease followers of one religion sets a dangerous precedent.  Besides, the Quran doesn't require Muslim women to wear a hijab.  The cover is optional and those who wear it do so willfully as an act of worship.

Radio station's panel on 'preventing' terrorism features terror-linked Muslim group.  Wilfredo Amr Ruiz is an attorney, Muslim Chaplain, columnist for the Huffington Post, and communications director for CAIR Florida. [...] What Ruiz won't tell you is that the Islam requires Muslims to wage jihad.  That Muhammad was a terrorist — among other things.  That CAIR is listed as a terrorist group in the United Arab Emirates.  That the FBI banned its agents from working with CAIR due to CAIR's Hamas links.  That CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator to the largest terror conviction in U.S. history.  That numerous CAIR leaders have been found guilty of terror offenses.

Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Declares U.S. 'An Enemy of the Arab World'.  The so-called 'Moderate' Muslim Brotherhood just declared the U.S. 'An Enemy of the Arab World' after the Trump Embassy Announcement[.]  Does this mean that we can now designate the organization connected to them as a terrorist organization?  CAIR has been actively involved in pushing the not-so-moderate Muslim Brotherhood's agenda.  Remember that Obama hosted the group at the White House even though the pressure was on to designate them as a terrorist organization.  The Muslim Brotherhood has declared war on the United States after President Trump announced earlier today the official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his intent to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Terrorism-affiliated Muslim group gets taxpayer cash.  Columbus, Ohio, inaugurated a defense fund in taxpayer money for illegal immigrants facing deportation.  Among the groups benefiting from the Columbus Families Together program is the local chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Founded in 1994 by three Muslims from the Middle East who propagandized for the terrorist organization that eventually became known as Hamas, CAIR became in 2008 a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group known as the Holy Land Foundation.

CAIR shutting down free speech.  We are at a tipping point in our society.  Either we fight to survive or surrender to the forces of anarchy and despotism.  In collusion with Islamic supremacists, the Left has gone to the mats to bring down our nation in an unholy alliance we call the Red-Green Axis.  If they win, it spells the end for our republic.  And while we have gotten something of a break from their destructive designs with the election of Donald Trump as president, they are doing everything possible to keep America in the dark and intimidate us into silence.  I have seen this up close and personal over the past few days.  Last week I traveled to locations in the Midwest to speak on that issue.  I was accompanied by Phil Haney, a Department of Homeland Security founding employee who was investigated by the Obama administration because he identified a large number of Islamic terrorists hiding in plain sight inside the U.S.  Yes, he was investigated by the very agency that tasked him to do this job.  That is the level of insanity we confront today.

FBI Counter-Terror Expert Sees Historic Islam Pivot.  The Muslim Brotherhood and its various offshoots have chosen 2016 as the year they will turn their focus away from the Middle East and toward the Western democracies seen as ripe for revolutionary activity, says a former FBI counter-terrorism specialist and Islam expert.  The revolutionary jihad movement that swept through the Middle East and North Africa as part of the "Arab Spring" is starting to take root in Europe with attacks already carried out on Paris and Brussels, said John Guandolo.  This movement will eventually spread to the United States, said Guandolo, a former Marine and instructor at the U.S. Army War College who now provides training to law enforcement agencies that want to learn more about the jihadist network in the U.S.  That network is operated, he said, by the International Muslim Brotherhood through its many front organizations.  Among them are the Muslim-American Society, or MAS; Muslim Student Association, or MSA; Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR; Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA; and North American Islamic Trust, or NAIT.

Muslim from terror-linked CAIR running for U.S. Congress.  A two-term Cambridge, Massachusetts, city councilor and founder of an activist group that trains Muslim-Americans to run for office launched a campaign for U.S. Congress on Sunday [10/1/2017] that could make him the third Muslim in the chamber.  Nadeem Mazen, 34, was set to declare his run as a Democrat for a district northwest of Boston, a seat that comes open next year as 71-year-old Representative Niki Tsongas opts not to seek a sixth term in office.

Terror-Linked Muslim Groups Providing Hurricane Relief.  This year, America's hearts and prayers have been focused on Texas, Florida and now Puerto Rico, all of which have been battered by hurricanes, suffering much damage and loss of life.  Different groups have offered their services in the relief effort.  Two of them, ICNA Relief and the Islamic Center of Boca Raton, have a disturbing history rooted in terrorism and bigotry.  It is this history that has cast doubt upon the groups' recent 'charitable' actions.  Indeed, it is their ulterior motive to establish legitimacy to deflect from their radical ties and Islamist ambitions.  ICNA Relief is a function of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the American affiliate of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), South Asia's largest Islamist group.

ProPublica (recipient of Soros $) works with CAIR and SPLC to silence speech.  Last week Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily wrote an article about ProPublica coordinating with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  Although frightening information in these dark days when free speech is under attack, I didn't relate it to my decade-long research about the US Refugee Admissions Program.  Silly me!

Terror-listed Muslim group CAIR wants all Confederate memorials in U.S. removed.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America's largest Muslim  civil rights  group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.  CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a "Unite the Right" white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend.  At the Charlottesville, Va. rally, James Alex Fields, a rally attendee, allegedly plowed his grey Dodge Challenger through a large group of people on a pedestrian mall.  One woman, Heather Heyer, died in the incident.  About 20 other people suffered injuries.  Nihad Awad, CAIR's national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

Council on American-Islamic Relations:  Tear Down Every Confederate Memorial.  he Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America's largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.  CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a "Unite the Right" white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend.

Civilization Jihad, Propaganda, and Ignorance.  The first prominent "moderate" muslim in America shoved down our throats was Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was the Islamic advisor President Clinton who created the muslim chaplain program for the Department of Defense.  Alamoudi turned out to be an Al Qaeda financier involved in a plot with Al Qaeda operatives to kill Saudi Prince Abdullah.  He is in jail now. [...] Now we have "moderate" muslims all around us being used to "educate" our leaders about Islam.  We have suit-wearing jihadis like Mohamed Magid, Sayyid Syeed, and Salam al Marayati, who are all Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas leaders, warmly welcomed into churches, government offices, and public functions.  Then we have Raheel Raza, Qanta Ahmed, Zuhdi Jasser and others who propagate the message that "their version of Islam" does not condone what the "terrorists" says it does.  They tell us they are "devout Muslims" who are "anti-sharia."  This is irreconcilable nonsense.  The difference is that leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, no matter how nice they dress or talk, are enemies of the United States and should be treated as such.

Jihad Means More than "A Peaceful Self-Struggle"!  What Sarsour said is technically correct, but simply not accurate.  It is just half of the truth.  What she did not, and probably will not, say is that the concept of jihad in Islam, as it is widely taught and understood in Islamic jurisprudence, is not only self-struggle or peaceful opposition, but also using force and violence to defend Islam, as well as to spread and impose it on non-Muslims.

Jihad Means More than "A Peaceful Self-Struggle"!  What Linda Sarsour said is technically correct, but simply not accurate.  It is just half of the truth.  What Sarsour did not, and probably will not, say is that the concept of jihad in Islam, as it is widely taught and understood in Islamic jurisprudence, is not only self-struggle or peaceful opposition, but also using force and violence to defend Islam, as well as to spread and impose it on non-Muslims.  In one of the Al-Azhar high school's books — Persuasion:  On Decoding Abu Shuga's Terms/Expressions — it teaches that fighting infidels, even if they have not attacked Muslims, is a religious obligation for every able and free Muslim man.  Failure to convert to Islam is therefore often viewed as an attack — against which Islam must be defended.

Meet 'Mainstream' Islamic Society of America.  The Islamic Society of America bills itself as an organization that believes "that Muslim Americans are a positive force in society through their work for spiritual and civic engagement in the U.S. and beyond."  Sounds nice.  Here's the rest of the story with a peek at what went on in the group's annual national convention last week — way under the media's radar.  There were thousands in attendance in Chicago to listen to speeches claiming President Trump wants to put Muslims in concentration camps and that convicted Muslim terrorists are actually victims of frame-ups.  "And we know from our experience that unless we have laws in place ... and we [know they have done this] with other communities, that they're going to send us to concentration camps," charged Zahra Billoo, the San Francisco director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Linda Sarsour Defends Her Use Of Jihad, Blames Conservative Media.  Women's March organizer Linda Sarsour defended her call for jihad against the White House Sunday [7/9/2017], blaming the outrage over her use of the word on conservative media in a Washington Post op-ed.  Muslim activist Sarsour called for a jihad against the White House during a speech she made at the Community Service Recognition Luncheon July 1.  After drawing outrage for using the term "jihad," Sarsour defended herself by saying she used the term to mean "struggle" or "to strive for."

Linda Sarsour calls American Muslims not to assimilate and for jihad.  When you hear the words "jihad" and "our top priority is not to assimilate" and this call is made to "please Allah" at a public event by an award-winning Champion of Change in a Western country you know that country is in deep trouble.  That is precisely what happened last week in America, in Chicago, on July 6.  Linda Sarsour has been hiding her agenda behind the cloak of liberal progressivism but, occasionally, her real identity emerges.  At the annual meeting of the Islamic Society of North America she made a speech which should trouble people who truly believe in diversity and, well, liberal politics.

Linda Sarsour Calls For 'Jihad' Against American Government.  In a largely self-congratulatory speech to the Annual Islamic Society of North American (ISNA) this past weekend, Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour called for the "best form" of jihad against the current American administration.  "A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad," Sarsour declared.  "And I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad.  That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America, where you have fascists, and white supremacists, and Islamophobes reigning in the White House."

CAIR Launches App So People Can Report 'Hate Crimes'.  Fake News outlet CNN is touting a new app launched by The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) designed for people to reported alleged "hate crimes" — aka perceived Islamophobia.  "If you are the victim of a hate crime, what would you do?" asks CNN.

Why CAIR Leader Hassan Shibly Fears a Terror Designation for Muslim Brotherhood.  On February 23rd, CAIR-Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibly posted onto Facebook a New York Times puff piece written by former Muslim Brotherhood media spokesman Gehad el-Haddad, who is currently serving a life prison sentence in Egypt for inciting murder.  The piece is titled 'I Am a Member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Not a Terrorist.'  In it, El-Haddad states that he wrote the piece due to "an inquiry... underway in the United States regarding charges that the Muslim Brotherhood... is a terrorist group."  El-Haddad's concern about labeling the Brotherhood a terror group is shared by Shibly, as Shibly's own group becomes part of the conversation.  In November 2015, Ted Cruz and Mario Diaz-Balart introduced the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015, respectively in the US Senate (S.2230) and the US House of Representatives (H.R.3892).  It has been a matter of speculation as to whether President Donald Trump will get behind this effort.  Further speculation has revolved around including certain Islamist groups and entities who have their roots in the Muslim Brotherhood.

Once Again, CAIR Shows That Islamism and Civil Rights Don't Mix.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been claiming for years to be not merely the nation's preeminent Muslim civil rights group, but a defender of the civil rights of all Americans.  In addition to denouncing alleged acts of "Islamophobia," representatives of the organization have been quick to condemn acts of antisemitism, police shootings of African Americans, anti-LGBTQ violence, and so forth, while expressing solidarity with every "progressive" cause under the sun.  But peer beneath CAIR's carefully-crafted press releases and publicity stunts and it's clear that the group's reactionary Islamist roots are as strong as ever.

Terror-linked CAIR's Islamization of San Diego Public Schools.  The (SDUSD) [San Diego School District] has been working with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on "anti-Islamophobia" plans, including adding lessons on Islam in social studies classes and adding Muslim "safe spaces" to campuses.  The plan is to be implemented in the fall with the start of the new school year.

Designate the Muslim Brotherhood a Foreign Terrorist Organization.  Founded in Egypt in 1928 and with branches or affiliates in over 70 nations, the Muslim Brotherhood today masquerades as a legitimate Islamic institution and a benign democratic actor.  It is neither.  Aside from the group's well-documented links to the financing of terrorism, it was the Brotherhood that birthed modern-day Islamism, a supremacist totalitarian ideology that seeks to undermine pluralist societies and impose hardline theocratic regimes.

Mattis' Pentagon pick seen as supporter of Muslim Brotherhood, group Trump may outlaw.  President Trump's defense secretary wants the Pentagon's top civilian job to go to a onetime prominent supporter of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, a group Trump may designate as a terrorist organization.  Not surprisingly, the White House is resisting the choice by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general, of Anne Patterson to be undersecretary of defense for policy — the Pentagon's fourth most powerful position.  While Patterson's bona fides are not in question — she has served as an ambassador to Egypt, Pakistan, Colombia, El Salvador and the United Nations, along with being President Obama's assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs — there is widespread concern, both at home and abroad, about her close ties to ousted Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood is making it impossible to criticise Islam, government report admits.  The Muslim Brotherhood is creating a 'parallel social structure' in Sweden with the help of 'political elites' who foster a culture of silence, a damning government report has found.  The document claims that the Brotherhood is building a 'parallel society' within the Scandinavian country, which can help the Islamist group to achieve its ends.  Founded in 1826, the Muslim Brotherhood aims to organise Muslims politically in order to create a global, Sunni Islamic Caliphate.

The Islamic Society Of North America's Destructive Agenda.  A number of major Democrats have cultivated highly significant ties to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  For example:  Congressman Keith Ellison (Minnesota), who narrowly lost in his bid to become DNC chairman a few days ago, has spoken at ISNA's massive national conferences on a number of occasions.  Congressman Andre Carson (Indiana) has received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from ISNA-affiliated donors, as have Keith Ellison, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.  And ISNA president Mohamed Magid was a key figure in Barack Obama's Department of Homeland Security, where he was authorized to train and advise personnel affiliated with the FBI and other federal agencies.  Yet most Americans are entirely unaware of just how subversive and anti-American the Islamic Society of North America is.

Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel accuses CAIR of being a front for terrorism.  Finally!  After 8 years of exposing CAIR by BNI and fellow anti-Islam bloggers, the truth about this designated terrorist front group CAIR is hitting the mainstream media.

New York Times in Full Panic Mode Over Reports Trump May Designate Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization.  The New York Times this week continued its month-long campaign against designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization amid reports the Trump administration is debating the possibility of issuing an executive order making such a designation.  Declaring the Brotherhood a terrorist organization would add the U.S. to the growing list of nations to do so, including Muslim countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

CAIR Leader:  Overthrow the U.S. Government.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) successfully presents itself to the media as a benign civil rights organization, comparable to the NAACP or the ADL, a description that conservatives ineffectively rail against.  In this light, perhaps a tweet sent out just after midnight EST on Nov. 9 by Hussam Ayloush, long-time head of CAIR's Los Angeles office, will help awaken the press to CAIR's true Islamist identity.

Five Reasons The Muslim Brotherhood Is a Terror Group.  [#4] Muslim-Brotherhood-Linked Groups Like CAIR Were Implicated in Terror Funding.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) which is named in the Muslim Brotherhood bill, was founded by members of the Islamic Association of Palestine, a group described by the Anti-Defamation League as "a Hamas affiliated anti-Semitic propaganda organization."  CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.  On July 1, 2009, U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis upheld CAIR's designation as an unindicted co-conspirator because of "ample evidence" linking it to Hamas.  As a result of this evidence, the FBI deemed CAIR was not "an appropriate liaison partner" and severed all ties.

Report: President Trump Considering Identifying Muslim Brotherhood as Official Terrorist Entity.  According to a Fox News initial report, President Trump is considering labeling The Muslim Brotherhood as an official terror group.  Having tracked The Brotherhood activity for several years there is a solid and reasonable case to make that such a designation is warranted.  However, there are voices within the Deep State who are opposed to such a designation.  Additionally, NATO member Turkey is currently a safe harbor for leadership of The Brotherhood.

CAIR's New Disinformation Campaign on "Jihad".  The internet has literally been littered with news reports about a new propaganda campaign being waged by the head of the Council on American Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Chicago director.  The man's name is Ahmed Rehab and his methodology has been to run advertising on buses to change the public perception of the word "Jihad."  Rehab has chosen two of the most liberal cities in America in which to conduct his campaign so far:  Chicago and San Francisco.  The name of the campaign is "MyJihad" and it aims to convince Americans that Jihad only means "to struggle" or, more specifically, an internal, personal struggle.  Rehab claims that this is the "true" meaning of Jihad.

Muslim Brotherhood Front Organizations, U.S. and Canada.  The 2008 Holy Land Relief terrorism funding criminal trial resulted in multiple convictions and was touted as the one of the largest terrorism financing trials in American history.  Expectations were high that the 2008 trial would be followed by further trials involving the listed unindicted co-conspirators such as CAIR USA and the Islamic Society of North America.  However, with the appointment of Eric Holder as the U.S. Attorney General in 2009, all further actions on this file appear to have been frozen.  Holder would later speak at a conference supporting one of the unindicted co-conspirators.

Muslim Brotherhood Front Organizations, U.S. and Canada.  Muslim Brotherhood front organizations and their members have an ongoing problem with criminal activity, terrorism-funding activities and overall negative relations with legal authorities.  These problems range from being listed as terrorist groups, being charged for weapons possession and an even an arrest for alleged sexual charges involving a 12-year-old girl.  Several of the charges are consistent with the extremist nature of the Muslim Brotherhood itself, given its commitment to violent political change.  Both criminal investigations and terrorism listings in North America, for instance, have been directly related to terrorism funding for Hamas, itself a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Islamists Join Environmentalists At Standing Rock To Delegitimize America.  In ironic ways, Standing Rock united America.  Positioned as a moral issue that merged land rights with environmental activism, Standing Rock captured the collective imagination of America's varied activist groups.  Since they are far better organized and more comfortable with "direct action" than conservatives are, Islamists seized the opportunity Standing Rock presented to elevate their platform.  Once Standing Rock gained national attention, various chapters and supporters of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations joined the battle.

Hamas-linked CAIR smears Ted Cruz in frantic efforts to block Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Bill.  Hamas-linked CAIR is accustomed to lying, smearing, and playing the victim on behalf of Muslims living in America, faking anti-Muslim hate-crimes and promoting the bogus "Islamophobia" narrative.  CAIR's desperation is showing, and will likely increase in its fight against the "Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act".

The Muslim Brotherhood lost a good friend when Obama left office and gained a formidable opponent with Trump.  Yesterday [1/23/2017] saw a stunning contrast as it was revealed that the outgoing Barack Obama funded Palestinians as almost his last act in office, while Donald Trump's first full workday saw him call Egypt's President El-Sisi to offer support in his battle against the Muslim Brotherhood, the Ikhwan, which seeks his overthrow.  It's all about the Muslim Brotherhood, that octopus of Islamic supremacist jihad that seeks to use all methods — legal, violent, or deceptive — to advance the goal of a world ruled by Islam.  Former president Obama's last few hours in office saw him override a congressional "hold" placed on $221 million in funding for the Palestinians, whose goal remains the destruction of Israel in line with the Muslim Brotherhood's strategy.

Women's March Organizer Recently Met Ex-Hamas Operative has Family Ties To Terror Group.  Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday's Women's March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.  Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House "Champion of Change," was speaking at last month's 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.  While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his alleged work for the terrorist group.

Michigan: CAIR shakes down Dept of Corrections over sharia meals.  A Muslim civil liberties organization has settled its lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections on behalf of inmates allegedly denied adequate nutrition during the annual month-long Ramadan fast.  The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) filed the suit in 2013 after four Muslim inmates said they received as little as one-third of the recommended daily calories in Ramadan 2011 and 2012.  The inmates were serving sentences at four correctional facilities:  Saginaw, Newberry, Parnall in Jackson, and Alger, located in Wetmore.  The plaintiffs said they often received meals containing inedible food or less than what was set forth on the Ramadan menu.  The morning meal also frequently was served after sunrise, precluding them from consuming the meal in accordance with the strictures of Ramadan observance.

DNC chair choice:  Muslim Brotherhood Congressman vs. enemy of free speech.  Keith Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities "who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood."  In 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca.  The Muslim American Society is a Muslim Brotherhood organization:  "In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews.  One of the nation's major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members."  That's from the Chicago Tribune in 2004, in an article that is now carried on the Muslim Brotherhood's English-language website, Ikhwanweb.  Also, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) raised large amounts of for Ellison's first campaign, and he has spoken at numerous CAIR events.

Designated terrorist group CAIR-Arizona leader calls on Obama to pardon Muslims.  A petition calling for President Barack Obama to use his powers of clemency to secure an early release for terror financiers is circulating online.  It gained the support of Imran Siddique, the executive-director of the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

CAIR's Hooper:  US Muslims' 'Mental Health Issues' Cause Them to Fake Hate Crimes.  Here's a new twist: the establishment propaganda media's narrative that Muslims are always victims is breaking down with the continuing revelations that Muslims have faked "anti-Muslim hate crimes," and so now ABC News has doubled down:  Muslims are victims, you see, because they fake anti-Muslim hate crimes.  They're driven crazy by "Islamophobia," doncha know.  "These false reports unfortunately give ammunition to the industry of Islamophobes who promote the demonization and dehumanization of Islamic Muslims," says Hamas-linked CAIR's Ibrahim "Honest Ibe" Hooper.  "Islamic Muslims," Ibe?  Are there non-Islamic Muslims now?

MB/Hamas Orgs in Chicago Using Interfaith Outreach to Surveil Churches.  Law enforcement officials are aware CIOGC is tied directly to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, and is heavily influenced by Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  It is UTT's professional opinion the Executive Director of CAIR, Nihad Awad, is the Muslim Brotherhood's General Masul — the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.  The CIOGC is considered by some in the Chicago community as a "moderate" organization working to "bring the community together."  In fact, they are using and manipulating non-Muslim religious leaders to intentionally weaken their positions so Muslims will have an easier time controlling public opinion and the opinion of the Christian/Jewish congregations so when violence strikes the Christians and Jews will rely on — not break from — the jihadis posing as friends.

Broward Deputy Sheriff Leads Banquets Featuring Terror Associates.  We expect members of law enforcement to protect us from harm, not have involvement with those who look to do us harm.  We cannot expect that from Nezar Hamze, because, while he is a Deputy at the Broward County Sheriff's Office, he is also the head of the Florida chapter of CAIR, a group with extensive ties to terrorism.  This past month, Hamze led two banquets where groups in the hallway and people on the stage and in the audience also had well documented associations with terror.

Trump or Hamas.  The Islamic Society of North America was named by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding Hamas.  It was linked to two Hamas funding fronts, the Holy Land Foundation and KindHearts.  ISNA's checks were made payable to the "Palestinian Mujahadeen" or "Holy Warriors" which was a name used by Hamas.  ISNA's co-founder Sami Al-Arian was the local head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Mousa Abu Marzook, a top Hamas official listed by the Treasury Department as a Specially Designated Terrorist, received tens of thousands of dollars from ISNA.  This should have come as no surprise as both ISNA and Hamas are arms of the Muslim Brotherhood.  But the American Jewish Committee has decided to team up with the financiers of the murder of Jews to oppose Trump.

CAIR Heads Exploding!  Everywhere they look, Muslims see Donald Trump nominating candidates to his cabinet who actually understand Islam and the existential threat it poses to America[.]  President-elect Donald Trump has nominated a man for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Ben Carson, who thinks Islam isn't a religion and has argued that there's a covert Muslim plot to destroy the U.S. from within.  (Actually, not so "covert" at all, if you've read the quran)[.]

Mosque With Ties To Palestinian Jihad Gets Gun Training.  CAIR-Florida Regional Operations Director Nezar Hamze's mosque gun training tour has taken him to numerous Islamic centers throughout Florida.  One of the centers is the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton, a radical mosque with a sinister past of embrace for those associated with Palestinian terror, including support for suicide attackers and their families.  The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR-Florida has, in the recent past, been involved in supporting Palestinian terrorism.  In July 2014, CAIR-Florida co-sponsored a pro-Hamas rally in Downtown Miami, where rally goers shouted, "We are Hamas" and "Let's go Hamas."  After the rally, the event organizer, Sofian Zakkout, wrote, "Thank God, every day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel!"

Keith Ellison's Saudi Arabia Trip Included Meetings With Radical Cleric, Bank That Funds Suicide Bombings.  Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) during a 2008 trip to Saudi Arabia met with a radical Muslim cleric who endorsed killing U.S. soldiers and the president of a bank used to pay the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.  Ellison, now a leading candidate to head the Democratic National Committee, was brought to Saudi Arabia for a two-week trip by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood to act as its "overt arm" in the United States.  Details of Ellison's religious pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia are scarce, but photographs discovered by the Washington Free Beacon show that Ellison met with controversial figures during the trip.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Fact Sheet.  CAIR has two separate non-profit entities (CAIR and the Washington Trust Foundation), which is legal if they act separately.  However, they act as one.  Foreign donors write checks to "CAIR" and they are deposited into the dual account, which effectively hides the original source.  This money is sent to the CAIR Foundation.  The donors must be reported, but the original sources remain hidden by routing the funds in this manner.  The transfer of $1.8 million from the CAIR-Action Network to the CAIR Foundation occurred over a five-year period.  In September 2013, it was reported that CAIR was violating the Internal Revenue Service laws and Foreign Agent Registration Act by hiding foreign donors.  The report claimed that CAIR has "engaged in more than 100 political influence operations on behalf of foreign principals in the United States."

Keith Ellison took a trip to Mecca funded by the Muslim Brotherhood!  The man currently running to be the head of the DNC took a trip to Mecca back in 2008 on the dime of a group founded by the Muslim Brotherhood.  And then he failed to disclose the trip altogether until the House Ethics committee made him do it.

Muslim Brotherhood-Tied Group Paid for Keith Ellison to Visit Mecca in 2008.  The House Ethics Committee opened an investigation into Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) after he failed to disclose that a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood paid for him to make a pilgrimage to the Islamic holy site of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.  Top Democrats have considered shifting to the left by electing Ellison party chairman, but critics say his previous association with radical groups should disqualify him from the leadership role.  Ellison has associated with the Muslim American Society, a Virginia-based group founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in 1993 to act as the "overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States," according to federal prosecutors in 2007.  The United Arab Emirates recently added the group to a list of terrorist organizations.

Democrats Must Scrutinize Keith Ellison's Anti-Semitic Past And Ties To Radical Islam.  Despite the furor over Trump aide Steve Bannon's alleged anti-Semitism, there's been virtually no media attention paid to the man likely to become the next chair of the Democratic National Committee, Cong.  Keith Ellison (D-MN).  The man poised to head the Democratic Party was a spokesman for the Nation of Islam well into his 30's who publicly spewed anti-Semitism and later in life as a Congressional candidate knowingly accepted $50,000 in campaign contributions given and raised by Islamic radicals who openly supported Islamic terrorism and were leaders of front groups for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Why Is a Sitting US Congressman Speaking at a Jihadist-Associated Convention?  Per the program and screenshot [...] from the ISNA website, United States Representative Keith Ellison (Democrat, 5th District, MN) is slated to speak at this key gathering of Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, front groups, and leadership on Saturday, 5 September 2015.  His topic, "Exploring the Parallels of Islam and the America's Labor Movement," offers a glimpse of the U.S. Brotherhood strategy to co-opt oppression and victimization narratives of the civil rights movement and working class in America.  Of note, Mr. Ellison has received at least $136,092 in financing from Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations since April 2006 and recently participated in June 2014 as a keynote speaker at the secretive inaugural banquet for the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the first political activist group in this country to be openly associated with the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood.

Star Spangled Shariah:  The Rise of America's First Muslim Brotherhood Party.  The Muslim Brotherhood has long operated as a formidable political force in Egypt, the place of its founding in 1928, and to varying degrees in other Middle East countries.  And as we know, the Muslim Brotherhood has been actively infiltrating American government and society since shortly after the Second World War.  But March 2014 marked a significant step forward for the Brotherhood in America:  Some of its key leadership figures joined together to establish the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the first political activist group in this country to be openly associated with the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood.

Trump to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terror Organization.  Donald Trump will work to pass legislation designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, said Walid Phares, a foreign policy advisor for the president-elect.  Speaking to the Egyptian news outlet Youm7, Phares said the legislation, which was already approved by the House Judiciary Committee earlier this year and referred to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was held up due to the Obama administration's support of the group.  Clarion Project spearheaded a campaign to educate legislators and move the bill forward over the past year.  The bill currently has bipartisan support.

CAIR Leader:  Overthrow the U.S. Government.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) successfully presents itself to the media as a benign civil rights organization, comparable to the NAACP or the ADL, a description that conservatives ineffectively rail against.  In this light, perhaps a tweet sent out just after midnight EST on Nov. 9 by Hussam Ayloush, long-time head of CAIR's Los Angeles office, will help awaken the press to CAIR's true Islamist identity.

Virginia: Hamas-linked CAIR enraged that sheriff's office hosting seminar on jihad threat.  This vicious little hit piece is a textbook example of how the bought-and-paid-for establishment propaganda media defames freedom fighters and mainstreams allies and enablers of jihad terrorists.

Obama's '1st Muslim judge' has ties to Saudi regime.  President Obama has appointed the first Muslim federal judge, a Pakistani immigrant who has practiced law in the United States for 10 years and was educated at American universities, but it's his ties to Islamists, including those in the Saudi Arabian government, that could prove troubling for senators being asked to approve his nomination.  While Abid Qureshi has never been a judge and thus has no clear record to inspect, his private practice defending Muslim civil rights and the celebration of his appointment by Islamist organizations give reason for concern, say experts in Islam.  Qureshi has defended two Muslim filmmakers in their quest to get pro-Islamic "anti-Islamophobia" advertisements placed in the New York subway system, and he also represented the Saudi Arabian government in a dispute involving a Shariah-compliant Islamic school in the U.S.  His appointment to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, which requires Senate approval, was hailed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America.

Obama cabinet member speaks at Islamist conference.  U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson spoke over this past weekend at the annual Islamic Society of America (ISNA) event, greeting the participants warmly and telling them, "Your story is the quintessential American story."  The Department of Homeland Security, the third largest Cabinet department in the U.S. government, is charged with protecting the U.S. from, and dealing with, terrorism as well as natural disasters.  The Washington Post called Johnson's appearance an "impassioned speech" to empower ISNA's participants.  The Clarion Project reports that ISNA is a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial.

CAIR Wants You To Stop Saying "Jihadist".  The executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has called on Americans to cease calling terrorists "jihadists."  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has a history of Islamist extremism including links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.  The U.S. Justice Department labeled CAIR an "unindicted co-conspirator" in a Hamas-financing trial and listed CAIR as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.  In addition, CAIR was officially designated a terrorist organization on by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on November 15, 2014.

Al Qaeda Financier Frequented the Clinton White House.  Islamists pose a particular security risk to our U.S. government.  They want to slowly introduce Sharia law into our system of government and take away our most cherished freedoms.  Islamists such as Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) not only strive to take away our fundamental freedoms, but they oftentimes also lobby against our government's ability to crack down on Islamic terrorism.  For example, Farhana Khera of Muslim Advocates wrote a letter in 2011 to the U.S. Department of Justice telling it the FBI needs to purge "highly offensive counterterrorism training materials about Muslims and Islam used to train its agents and law enforcement."

Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month.  Remember the false report that Obama was going to name November to be National Muslim Appreciation Month?  The terrorist facilitators at CAIR apparently do — except for them, the fake story isn't satire; it's an excellent suggestion.  California is run by the sort of people who might agree. [...] Readers may recall that just last year 14 people were killed and 22 seriously injured in a Muslim terror attack right there in California.  But no month will be set aside to honor victims of Islam, because that would be Islamophobic.

Clinton VP Pick Tim Kaine's Islamist Ties.  In 2007, Kaine was the Governor of Virginia and, of all people, chose Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish to the state's Immigration Commission.  A Muslim organization against Islamism criticized the appointment and reckless lack of vetting.  Federal prosecutors said in a 2008 court filing that MAS was "founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America."  A Chicago Tribune investigation in 2004 confirmed it, as well as MAS' crafty use of deceptive semantics to appear moderate.  Convicted terrorist and admitted U.S. Muslim Brotherhood member Abdurrahman Alamoudi testified in 2012, "Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood."

Today President Erdogan Presents The "Rabba Salute" — Affirming Ideological Alignment With Muslim Brotherhood.  When Mohammed Morsi rose to power in Egypt his rise was on the back of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The "Islamist Spring" brought forth a more radical version of Islamic sentiment — The Muslim Brotherhood, or just "Brotherhood", is the political branch of various hardline Islamic ideologies.  The foundational ideological block under ISIS, al-Qaeda and Al Nusra, is the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Brotherhood has its own signature; and when you know what to look for you can identify its appearance.

CAIR Objects to Billboards by Muslims to Report Suspicions.  Billboards placed in suburban Chicago by an American Pakistani organization urging Muslims to report suspicious activity are being attacked by CAIR and other Islamic Organizations.  The billboards read:  "Muslims to Muslims:  See Something.  Say Something.  Save Innocent Lives."  They were paid for by the Association of Pakistani Americans of Bolingbrook.  Talat Rashid, founder of the association, said the message to Muslims is to report any activity that might be indicative of a planned terror attack.  To Americans, the message is meant to be that most American Muslims are also against terror attacks.

Meet Democratic Convention Delegate Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn Girl with Hateful, Islamist Views.  When it comes the political left's favorite Islamists, they have chosen a champion in Linda Sarsour.  You may have seen her on a CBS panel of ordinary Muslim Americans.  Perhaps you've seen her discussing the struggles of fasting on Ramadan in a new Huffington Post video; or, maybe you read the glowing profile of her last year in The New York Times.  Sarsour is the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY).  She is an activist with political aspirations and she makes it a point to be seen at the events of any and every social justice cause known to man.  Recently, she was featured on the cover of the ACLU's magazine Stand.

Witness at Cruz hearing correctly accuses Muslim congressmen of Muslim Brotherhood ties, media in uproar.  [Scroll down]  But this really shouldn't be so hard, even for a blinkered Leftist propagandist like Sam Stein of the HuffPo.  He quotes Faryal Khatri of ISNA saying:  "I can definitely tell you we are not Muslim Brotherhood.  We are not affiliated with them at all and never were.  That much I can reassure you."  But he doesn't tell his hapless readers that ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Nor does he bother to note that it wasn't "fringe websites" or Frank Gaffney or Ted Cruz who identified ISNA as a Muslim Brotherhood front group; this designation comes from the United States Department of Justice, which classified ISNA among entities "who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood."

Hillary's coterie of anti-Semites.  [Scroll down]  Keith Ellison is the American face of stealth Jihad and another "first" phenomenon on two counts.  He is the first black and the first Muslim congressman from Minnesota.  Keith is also a converso, a former Catholic, like Lew Alcindor, converted to Islam when black rage and Islam was hip.  Congressman Ellison is most famous for taking his oath of office from Nancy Pelosi in Washington on a Koran.  Ellison has been cagey about his conversion, but his ties to the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan are matters of record.  He has written in support of Farrakhan on more than one occasion under a pseudonym.  Ellison also has extensive personal, political, and financial ties to the American Muslim jihad net through such organizations as Council on American Islamic Relations, Muslim American Society, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim public Affairs Council, North American Imams Federation, and the notorious Saudi funded American Open University in Virginia, a kind of seminary for Muslim clerics.  Former AOU chairman Ja'far Sheikh Idris considers American democracy to be "the antithesis of Islam."  He also claims that no one "can be a Muslim who makes or freely accepts or believes that anyone has the right to make or accept legislation that is contrary to divine (Islamic) law."

Witness Tells Senate Committee CAIR Engaged In Corrupt Activities With Hamas.  A national security consultant testified Tuesday [6/28/2016] he conducted undercover research as an intern for Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and accused the Islamic organization at a Senate Oversight Judiciary Committee hearing of corruption and other crimes.  Chris Gaubatz, the undercover consultant, told the committee, "During my time conducting undercover research as an intern for Hamas, both at CAIR MD/VA in Herndon, VA, and CAIR National in Washington DC, I preserved documents that revealed Hamas doing business as CAIR:  conspired to cover-up fraud committed by one of their immigration attorneys; discussed coordinating with Bin Laden and his associates; placed staffers and interns inside congressional offices; conspired to influence congress, specifically judiciary, intelligence, and homeland security committees; impacted congressional districts, tasking each Hamas Chapter office with influencing at least two legislators."

CAIR: Supporters of Gun Control Bill Are Anti-Muslim.  If left-wing politicians thought they were immune from ridiculous accusations of anti-Muslim bigotry by treating the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) with kid gloves, they are in for a surprise.  In declaring its opposition to the latest bi-partisan bill to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns, the sordid group has accused the Democrats and Republicans of trying to suppress Muslims' civil liberties.  CAIR is, according to the Justice Department, a front for the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and has links to Hamas.  The Muslim country of the United Arab Emirates, which previously funded CAIR, designated CAIR as a terrorist organization when it cracked down on Islamist extremism.

Three Tricks Islamists Use to Conceal the Truth about Orlando.  Hours after 49 innocent people were brutally killed during the Pulse massacre in Orlando, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamist groups were already deploying time-tested tactics to divert attention from the obvious cause of this massacre, a radical form of Islam much like their own.  Three bear highlighting: diversion, claiming the terrorist attack had nothing to do with Islam, and publicly smearing Muslim reformers.  In Dallas, the diversion tactic was set into action on social media when Alia Salem, head of CAIR's Dallas-Fort Worth chapter, attacked the lieutenant governor of Texas, Dan Patrick, for a bible verse he tweeted at 6:00 AM on Sunday, only minutes after the end of the Pulse showdown.  Patrick's tweet featured Galatians 6:7, which states "Do not be deceived; God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows."

CAIR Hilarity:  We Welcome 'Significant, Healthy Debates' Among Muslims.  He might have been trying to be ironic.  But Corey Saylor seemed to be playing it straight Monday [6/20/2016] when he claimed that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants "more empowered voices" in the future to "let the public at large see more of us talking about the full spectrum of views that exist within the Muslim community."  We could hear the spit-take all the way from Arizona.  That's the home of Zuhdi Jasser, who founded the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) and the Muslim Reform Movement.  Both groups embrace a "separation of mosque and state" and stand against the Islamist victimization agenda pushed by CAIR.

CAIR Sees 64 Percent Jump in Muslims Registered to Vote Since 2012.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) estimates that the number of American Muslims registered to vote has jumped from around 500,000 in 2012 to at least 824,000 ahead of November's election — a 64 percent increase.  CAIR said Tuesday [6/21/2016] that could be a possible indicator of increased political involvement due to anti-Muslim rhetoric by "public figures."  It did not name names, but presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has come under fire for some campaign statements relating to Islam — especially his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. because of terrorism concerns.  The figures are not scientific:  CAIR obtained them from first, middle or last names of registered voters that match a list of more than 43,000 "traditionally Muslim names developed by CAIR."

Judge Orders Terrorist-Affiliated CAIR To Stand Trial For Fraud.  The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today [6/21/2016] unanimously reversed a trial court's ruling dismissing a fraud case brought against the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The result of the appellate court's ruling is that CAIR National, operating out of the District of Columbia, must stand trial and allow a jury to hear all of the evidence of the massive fraud and attempted cover up carried out by CAIR and perpetrated against hundreds of CAIR fraud victims.  In January of last year, Judge Paul Friedman, the federal judge presiding over a five-year old lawsuit alleging that CAIR defrauded hundreds of Muslim and non-Muslim clients, issued a shocking ruling when he summarily dismissed the lawsuit, which was brought in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Post-Orlando, CAIR Issues New 'Islamophobia' Report.  Instead of announcing a program to teach young Muslims why they should reject the understanding of Islam held by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other jihad groups, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference Monday to unveil its latest cynical and deceptive report on "Islamophobia" in the U.S. [...] For those willing to consider the facts, however, here are some of the problems with the new report: [...] [#3] "Attacks on mosques have increased, with 78 recorded incidents in 2015." Have I or any of the others mentioned in this report ever called for attacks on mosques?  No.  Have any of the people who attacked mosques ever invoked any of us to explain why they attacked the mosques?  No.  Have Muslims faked "hate" attacks on mosques?  Yes.  Which is more likely: that any actual attack on a mosque by a non-Muslim vigilante idiot was provoked by our reporting about jihad terror, or by jihad terror itself, against which the mosques in the U.S. have not acted in any strong fashion?  Hamas-linked CAIR would have you believe that this alleged cabal of "Islamophobic" individuals and groups is responsible for Americans' suspicion and distrust of Muslims, when in reality the people who are responsible for any actual such suspicion and distrust are Omar Mateen, Syed Rizwan Farook, Tashfeen Malik, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Nidal Malik Hasan, etc.

No, the Council on American-Islamic Relations Doesn't Like Homosexuals.  CAIR was founded by members of the Sunni Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, whose hatred of homosexuals is quite explicit.  Shibly himself decried homosexuality as "evil" and a "quick way to earn God's wrath" in a 2009 Facebook essay on gay marriage.  In order not to jeopardize their pursuit of U.S. governmental access and partnerships with left wing anti-Israel activists, most CAIR officials have avoided expressing such opinions publicly.  More often they have ignored the issue of homosexuality or denied that it is prevalent in the Muslim community.

CAIR's Violent Assault on Free Speech.  What does CAIR have in common with ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban?  It is a terrorist organization which hates and violently opposes Free Speech.  Like ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban, CAIR is a jihadi organization.  It is Hamas in the United States.  Don't let the suits fool you.  CAIR was identified by the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI as a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee, which is Hamas in the United States.

Obama Taps Yet Another Muslim Brotherhood-Linked Official to Prominent WH Role.  For nearly eight years, President Obama has appointed a range of Muslim officials with terror-links to influential positions within the administration.  The latest in a long line is Zaki Barzinji, whom Obama just tapped as the new associate director of public engagement for the White House.  The Clarion Project notes that Barzinji worked for the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA), an organization targeted by the U.S. Justice Department as a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate and was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a major Hamas-funding trial.  Oh, and Barzinji's grandfather was also a Muslim Brotherhood terror suspect.

CAIR Denounces US Military on Memorial Day.  The Clarion Project broke the story last year that two Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) officials were criticizing Memorial Day, resulting in FOX News coverage and expressions of outrage from Muslims who appreciate the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers.  CAIR officials again criticized the holiday this year.  CAIR is a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was designated as a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates in November.  FBI wiretaps in 1993 reveal that CAIR was established to deceptively push the Islamist agenda.

CAIR Official Posts Offensive Holocaust Jokes Onto Social Media.  CAIR was established in June 1994 as part of a terrorist umbrella group headed by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook.  In 2007 and 2008, CAIR was named by the US Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas.  Since its founding, a number of CAIR representatives have served jail time and/or have been deported from the United States for terrorist-related crimes.  In November 2014, CAIR, itself, was designated a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.

Muslims Don't Assimilate, They Infiltrate.  The term "Islamophobia" was invented and promoted in the early 1990s by the International Institute for Islamic Thought, a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood.  It was designed as a weapon to advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them, similar to the tactics used by the political left, when they hurl the accusations of "racist," "sexist," "homophobe" and "hate-speech."  It became the role of Islamist lobby organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to depict themselves as civil-rights groups speaking out on behalf of a Muslim American population that was allegedly besieged by outsiders who harbored an illogical, unfounded fear of them and regularly accusing the American people, American institutions, law-enforcement authorities, and the U.S. government of harboring a deep and potentially violent prejudice against Muslims.  Of course, FBI data on hate crimes show that such allegations are nonsense.

Hamas-linked CAIR files suit claiming terror watch list discriminates against Muslims.  Hamas-linked CAIR's Michigan top dog Dawud Walid said:  "I think the question is, are we going to be selective about this?  Are we following people and placing people on this list who go to KKK meetings, people who go to Donald Trump rallies?"  So in Dawud Walid's world, he would have you believe that people who go to Donald Trump rallies are just as likely to commit acts of terror as people who believe in a religion that exhorts believers to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers, and whose adherents have been responsible for over 28,000 terror attacks worldwide since 9/11.

What Islamophobia?  [A recent] USA Today article politely calls CAIR a "Washington-based civil-liberties group."  Many governments and public agencies consider it to be in league with terrorist groups.  At the least it is a non-profit Muslim propaganda machine.  Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., with 33 affiliates nationwide, CAIR lobbies compliant politicians, corporations, and media.  It does so purposefully, relying on credulous Americans fearful of contributing to "backlash" or being anything less than nice and tolerant people — much less right-wing kooks or racists.  It uses toleration, pluralism, fairness, religious freedom, diversity, and other high-minded American ideals to disarm suspicion or resistance.  Some CAIR claims are sheer inventions.

Incubators of Islamic Supremacism.  With no hope of winning an argument on the facts, demagogues resort to the argument ad hominem.  Too often, it works.  And in the modern "progressive" West, no demagogic tactic works better than branding one's political adversaries as racists.  That is why the Muslim Brotherhood, the world's most influential Islamic-supremacist organization, dreamed up the term "Islamophobia."  It is why Western progressives, stalwart allies of the Brotherhood, have lustily embraced the Islamophobia smear tactic — even sought to engrave it in our law, in brazen violation of the First Amendment.

Committee Presses Obama Admin. to Designate Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group.  The House Judiciary Committee approved legislation Wednesday [2/24/2016] calling on the State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.  "The Muslim Brotherhood's embrace of terrorism and the very real threat it poses to American lives and the national security of the United States make it long overdue for designation," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said in a statement.  "The bill passed by the House Judiciary Committee today calls the State Department to do the right thing and designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization." he added, noting that the designation will help to keep members of the group out of the United States.

Shariah: A unique form of religious law.  One of the most misunderstood aspects of studying Jihad and Islam is the role of Shariah law.  This is largely because so much misinformation about Shariah has been disseminated by Muslim Brotherhood front groups, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Students Association and, especially, the Islamic Circle of North America here in the U.S.  Many Westerners, even pastors, priests and rabbis, assume that Shariah is similar to Christian canon law or Jewish rabbinical law.  That just isn't true at all.

CAIR Negotiating on Behalf of Muslim Workers Fired from Meat Plant Over Prayer Dispute Walkout.  About 190 workers, most of them Muslim immigrants from Somalia, were fired from their jobs at a meat packing and distribution plant in Colorado this week for walking off the job to protest a workplace prayer dispute.  Approximately 200 workers reportedly walked off of their jobs at Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan earlier this month to protest what they allege were changes made in times allowed for them to take breaks in order to participate in Islamic prayer.

It's Time for Candidates to Discuss the Enemy Within.  Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have already drawn attention to the first half of the homeland security threat — the endless migration from the Middle East as manifest through our suicidal immigration policies.  Unfortunately, Republicans didn't listen, and despite the universally-accepted threat of the Syrian and Somali refugees, they gave Obama the full $1.67 billion for refugee resettlement in the Omnibus bill.  However, it is the second half of the equation — the most foundational threat to our homeland and society — that has garnered almost no attention from anyone in politics.  That is the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood organizations in America that have so much influence both on the Obama administration and the Muslim communities in our country.

10 Reasons to Be Suspicious of CAIR.  One reason to be suspicious of Washington's ability to deal with the threat of Islamist terrorism is that the same dodgy characters keep showing up as self-appointed spokespersons for the American Muslim community.  The Beltway-media complex is too politically correct and/or afraid of being labeled "anti-Muslim" to ask tough questions about their background.  They become unchallenged, unquestioned sources for a great deal of news coverage.

Mosque Linked To Muslim Brotherhood Has Received Millions In Federal Grants.  A Kansas City mosque owned by an Islamic umbrella organization with deep ties to the U.S. arm of the Muslim Brotherhood has received millions of dollars in federal grants over the past several years, according to a federal spending database.  The Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City has received $2,739,891 from the Department of Agriculture since 2010, a Daily Caller analysis has found.  The money largely went to the mosque's Crescent Clinic to provide services through the Women, Infant and Children nutrition program, known as WIC.

Obama White House Turns to Islamists Who Demonize Terror Investigations.  [Scroll down]  The White House guests, or the organizations they represent, have long histories of criticizing counter-terror investigations.  CAIR leads the pack.  Its Philadelphia chapter is advertising a workshop, "The FBI and Entrapment in the Muslim Community," which features a spider with an FBI badge on its back, spinning a web of entrapment around an image of a mosque.  The workshop "provides the tools needed to prevent entrapment of community members to become terrorists in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania."  Since 9/11, CAIR has repeatedly taken the side of defendants accused of financing or plotting attacks, calling their prosecutions a "witch hunt" against the Muslim community.  For example, CAIR denounced the prosecution of Sami Al-Arian, who turned out to be the secretary of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad's governing board, as "politically motivated" and a result of the "Israelization of American policy and procedures."

UK condemns Muslim Brotherhood in break from Obama administration.  A powerful report by the U.K. government accuses the Muslim Brotherhood of being sympathetic to terrorists and a risk to British national security, striking a contrast with the Obama administration's more conciliatory approach — and fueling criticism that the U.S. government should wake up to the threat.  "I think the report is a damning indictment of the Muslim Brotherhood, and it's a very realistic assessment of the nature of the Brotherhood itself," Nile Gardiner, director of the Heritage Foundation's Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, told  "The British government has taken a far more serious approach compared to the Obama administration's."

CAIR's 'Deputy Hamas' Teaches Radical Mosque to Use Guns.  Nezar Hamze is a leader in the Hamas-related Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  He is also a Deputy Sheriff in the Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO), in Broward County, Florida.  This background has given him the opportunity to exploit his position in law enforcement to assist his Islamist friends in their desire for weapons training.  This month, he did so at a Tampa Bay, Florida mosque that partners with designated terrorist organizations.  CAIR was established in June 1994 as part of the American Palestine Committee, a terrorist umbrella group headed by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook.  Marzook is currently residing in Egypt as second in command of Hamas.  In 2007 and 2008, CAIR was named by the US Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas.  Since its founding, a number of CAIR representatives have served jail time and/or have been deported from the US for terrorist-related crimes.

White House Opens Door to CAIR Rep, Ignores Muslim Reformers.  He accused the FBI of killing two men in cold blood in separate incidents.  But Obama administration officials saw Hassan Shibly as a suitable representative of the American Muslim community to include at Monday's [12/14/2015] White House meeting on combating religious discrimination, the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has learned.  Shibly is the chief executive director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Florida.  Since 2008, FBI policy has barred outreach communication with CAIR officials due to documents seized by law enforcement which place CAIR and its founders at the heart of a Hamas-support network at the time of CAIR's creation.

Pelosi names Muslim lawmaker who wants to model US schools after madrassas to House intel committee.  CAIR-funded Andre Carson sponsored a fundraiser with terror-listed CAIR, and Nancy Pelosi was his keynote speaker.  Now she's paying it forward and CAIR has another Muslim mole in a sensitive position.

FOIA Request Finds FBI Chart Showing CAIR's Ties To Hamas.  Nothing we didn't already know.

FBI Chart and Documents Portray CAIR as Hamas-Related Organization.  An FBI chart has surfaced depicting connections between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.  Obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the chart shows CAIR falling under the umbrella of the jihadi outfit.

CAIR Helping Terrorist's Family Get Custody of Baby.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations — Greater Los Angeles Area office (CAIR-LA) is helping Saira Khan obtain custody of her six-old month niece, the child left orphaned by the jihadist couple who massacred 14 people and wounded 21 others in a terrorist attack in San Bernardino last week.  Mrs. Khan is the sister of Syed Farook who carried out the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California with his wife Tashfeen Malik.

How Did A Terror-Tied Group End Up Running Interference In California Terror Probe?  The Muslim group representing the Farook family, whose patriarch and matriarch now have both been put on terror watch lists, is a terror-tied group the FBI views as so suspicious it's banned from agency outreach.  Yet this same group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has been appointed by the family to defend it in the wake of Syed Farook's and wife Tashfeen Malik's heinous slaughter of 14 in an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in San Bernardino.

'They don't speak for me': New Muslim groups reject CAIR representation.  Within hours of a terror attack that left 14 dead in Southern California, the nation's best-known Islamic advocacy group held a press conference with the killers' family — and Muslims around the country cringed.  In the days following the Dec. 2 attack in San Bernardino, Council for American-Islamic Relations representatives partially blamed U.S. policy for terrorist attacks, accused gunman Syed Rizwan Farook's co-workers of making fun of his beard and sought to downplay comments by Farook's father linking him to ISIS.  Like Muslims throughout the U.S., CAIR officials condemned the attack, but too often with what sounded to critics like subtle caveats.

After Jihadist Mass Murder, the CAIR's Sharia Agenda Rolls On.  In San Bernardino, heartbroken families are preparing to bury the 14 innocent people murdered last week by Islamic jihadists Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.  They are tending to another 21 wounded by the married terrorists.  Meanwhile the Los Angeles chapter of CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) is pressing child custody authorities in California to comply with Islamic law — sharia — in the placement of the six-month-old infant the terrorist couple left behind.  They may not be saying that that is what they are doing, but that is what they are doing.  In the long term, CAIR-LA is pushing to have the child placed with Farook's sister, Saira Khan.  This is going on, mind you, even as FBI Director James Comey told a Senate committee today that the Islamic supremacist couple had been discussing jihad and martyrdom for the last two years (i.e., beginning before Malik immigrated to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia in 2014).  Farook may even have plotted a terrorist attack in 2012.

Cruz Proposes Bill to Label Brotherhood, CAIR as Terror Orgs.  In what may be a seminal moment in the fight against radical Islam, presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has introduced legislation to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.  The impressively-detailed bill identifies three Brotherhood entities in the U.S. including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  The Muslim Brotherhood is not currently banned in the U.S. because it is not listed as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.  Remarkably, its Palestinian wing — Hamas — is designated, but the group a whole is allowed to operate in the U.S.

Hamas on the Charles: Cambridge, MA Reelects CAIR Leader to City Council.  On the face of it, Cambridge politician Nadeem Mazen is a model citizen.  He is an elected councilor, a graduate of MIT, an advocate for better education, and the founder of two successful companies.  Yet it also turns out that Mazen is a founding director of the Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, a Hamas front group blacklisted by the FBI because of its terrorist connections.

Senator Ted Cruz Seeks to Remove Muslim Brotherhood's Veil.  Imagine the existence of a group involved in covertly formulating a plan on how to subvert the U.S. Constitution, distributing that plan among its leadership and agents within the U.S., quietly supporting terrorism to further this agenda, declaring war against America, and brazenly recognizing U.S. indifference by boasting about its terrorist activities.  A rational mind would conclude this group be identified as a domestic threat with every effort made to minimize its influence.  Yet President Obama has not only embraced the group, but welcomed its leaders to the White House.

Tulsa Approves CAIR Float for Veteran's Day Parade, Confederate Group Denied.  "For the first time, Oklahoma Muslims will have a float in the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Tulsa on Nov. 11," reports Tulsa World.  The float is being sponsored by CAIR-Oklahoma and the chapter's executive director said it will be used to represent the Muslim community in the state, as well as immigrants and indigenous people.  But when a Confederate veterans group applied for their own float for the parade, they were denied.

Cruz Files Bill Naming Muslim Brotherhood a Terror Group.  Senator Ted Cruz has filed a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).  We congratulate Senator Cruz for this long overdue move.  Way back in 2007 the Bush administration was petitioned to designate the Muslim Brotherhood but they failed to do so.  Not only is the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, it is the forerunner of all modern-day Sunni Jihadist terrorist organizations.

Ted Cruz Is Right: The Muslim Brotherhood Is a Terrorist Organization.  The Muslim Brotherhood youth in Egypt reject any form of violence."  So said Rachid Ghannouchi, who — you'll no doubt be stunned to hear — heads up the Muslim Brotherhood's Tunisian branch, Ennahda. [...] It is nonsense, but Ghannouchi knows it is precisely the nonsense our government wants to hear. We don't want to know about the Brotherhood, but man oh man do the Brothers ever go to school on us.  Ghannouchi understands that if he chants "democracy" and "non-violence" enough times, there will be no inconvenient mention of his support of Hamas — the terrorist organization that is the Brotherhood's Palestinian branch.  No one will bring up his 2009 call for the opening of a "third jihadist front" against Israel.

Palestinian Terror Group Rips Senator Ted Cruz for Calling it Palestinian Terror Group.  The Palestine Liberation Organization on Thursday criticized Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz over a Senate hearing he oversaw on Palestinian and Iranian terrorism that it called "biased and inflammatory."  In an unusually harsh statement issued Thursday, the PLO said the Judiciary subcommittee hearing provided no Palestinian viewpoint and conflated all Palestinians with terrorists.  The PLO expressed alarm at what it said was a growing trend in the United States to "dehumanize" Palestinians.  In response, Cruz said, "It is not surprising a terrorist organization like the PLO is upset with the truths that were told at our hearing yesterday."

Congress Moves to Label Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group.  Lawmakers in both houses of Congress filed legislation on Tuesday [11/3/2015] that would formally designate the Muslim Brotherhood a sanctioned terrorist organization, according to an advance copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.  The legislation outlines the Brotherhood's long history of sponsoring terrorism and outlines congressional support for it to be designated a global terrorist outfit.  The bill also would force Secretary of State John Kerry to explain why the Obama administration has been hesitant to label the Brotherhood a terrorist group.

How Much Does the U.S. Government Still Deal with CAIR?  On October 6, 2015, according to Department of Homeland Security spokesman S.Y. Lee, DHS convened a conference call with "senior officials from the FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ) Civil Rights Division, DOJ Community Relations Service, DHS Office of Infrastructure Protection and Federal Emergency Management Agency."  Also on the call were what Lee characterized insipidly as "faith-based, community-based, and civil rights and civil liberties advocacy stakeholders," and what the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) characterized as "American Muslim community leaders."  CAIR's press release on the subject coyly does not say whether CAIR was one of the "American Muslim community leaders" participating in the meeting.  Its possible involvement is significant because, after several CAIR founders and/or officials were convicted in the Holy Land Foundation case — America's largest terrorism financing case — the FBI severed its liaison relationship with the group, banning it from cooperation for the foreseeable future.  CAIR was not indicted as a defendant, but was deemed an unindicted co-conspirator.

When a phobia is rational.  [Scroll down]  This powerful PR group is C.A.I.R. (Council of America-Islamic Relations) and in 2007, was named, along with 245 others, by U.S. Federal prosecutors in a list of unindicted co-conspirators and or/joint venturers in a Hamas funding case involving the Holy Land Foundation.  It allegedly has also been listed as a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates.  Its spokespersons appear frequently in the mainstream media charging any criticism as Islamaphobic and spreading the canard that Islam is a peaceful religion despite the overwhelming evidence that it is not.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Strategic Plan For America - Court Document.  The following is the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood's strategic goals for North America.  The document was entered as evidence in the 2008 Holyland Terror Funding Trial.  Federal investigators found the document in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search.  Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.

GOP candidate Ben Carson goes after Muslim advocacy group's tax status.  The retired neurosurgeon accused the Council on American-Islamic Relations on Thursday [10/1/2015] of violating its nonprofit tax status in a Facebook message.

Progressivism: Easing the Way to Mass Murder.  [Scroll down]  Virtually from its inception, the Obama administration has demonstrated support for the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Brotherhood, founded in 1928 and closely linked to the Nazis during World War II, has consistently promoted an anti-American, anti-Western and anti-Semitic agenda.  Its offshoot, Hamas, openly declares its dedication not only to the murder of all Israel's Jews but of all Jews worldwide.  Yet the Obama administration has appointed American Muslims associated with the Muslim Brotherhood to government posts and even as liaisons with federal law enforcement and security agencies and the military, and Brotherhood associates have been frequent guests at the White House.  Obama intervened to provide Brotherhood leaders prominent audience placement for his 2009 Cairo speech in which he apologized for America's past role in the Middle East and sought more generally to propitiate the Arab and broader Muslim world.

Obama's Iranian Lobby Tied Directly to Islamist Terror Regime.  A prominent Iranian dissident has exposed the extensive commercial and political links between National Iranian American Council (NIAC) and a number of key figures in the Iranian regime, including current President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.  Writing in the Daily Beast under the pseudonym "Alex Shirazi," the dissident — who concealed his identity out of fear of reprisals against his family in Iran — chronicled NIAC's evolution within the broader ambitions of the Namazis, a little-known but influential Iranian family that first rose to prominence under the Shah and returned to Iranian public life following the death of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989.

Ex-Imam Exposes Mosques of Terror.  This special edition of The Glazov Gang was hosted by Ari David, the host of the Ari David Show Podcast, and joined by Dr. Mark Christian, a former Islamic Imam who converted to Christianity, an act for which he now lives under the perpetual threat of death.  He came on the show to discuss Mosques of Terror, unveiling the disturbing link between ISNA mosques and jihad in America.

CAIR Joins Black Lives Matter Movement.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has joined the Black Lives Matter movement.  As Michelle Moons reported, CAIR leaders and members joined Black Lives Matter in a march on the California State Capitol on Wednesday, targeting Gov. Jerry Brown's office over a new bill that, in part, would expand bans on racial profiling to include perceived ethnicity.  As police officers are being targeted across the nation, CAIR has sided with their enemies.

Muslim Stewardess Refuses to Serve Alcohol, Then Plays the Victim.  A Muslim flight attendant, Charee Stanley, claims that she was suspended from her job with ExpressJet Airlines because she refused to serve alcohol.  She has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) — and now the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has jumped onto the case.  So now we have yet another Muslim workplace lawsuit from CAIR — once again designed to impose Islam on the workplace.  This is what they do.  Why would a devout Muslim want to be a flight attendant in the first place, when half your job is serving alcohol?

Islamist Deputy Sheriff Received Go-Ahead to Keep Job at CAIR.  Nezar Hamze has two paying jobs.  In one, he is a Deputy Sheriff at the Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO), under oath to watch over, protect and promote the best interests of the community.  In the other, he is the Regional Operations Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the Florida chapter of CAIR, an Islamist group with numerous ties to international terrorism.  It is disturbing and dangerous that someone from CAIR is involved with law enforcement.  It is more disturbing that Hamze has his job at CAIR with the blessings of the Sheriff's office.

CAIR Leader Nezar Hamze Is Now Deputy Sheriff.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has its foundation in the terrorist organization Hamas.  It has been named as a co-conspirator by the U.S. government for two federal trials dealing with the financing of Hamas, and it is recognized as an international terrorist group by the government of United Arab Emirates (UAE).  Given this information, how is it possible that one of this group's leaders, Nezar Hamze, could be considered for a position at one of the most prominent Sheriff's offices in the United States?  However, that is exactly what has happened.

CAIR Members to Meet with Gun Shop Owner Who Declared Store a 'Muslim-Free Zone'.  A Florida gun shop owner declared his store a "Muslim-free zone" in a video posted to Facebook this weekend.  "I will not arm and train those who wish to harm," Florida Gun Supply owner Andy Hallinan said in the video.  Hallinan told FOX 13 that he understands that the majority of Muslims are not radical extremists, but that he believes Islam's core foundation is evil.

Does CAIR Represent Boston's Muslim Community?  On previous occasions, CAIR proudly proclaimed that it had at least 32 chapters.  Back in July 2007, CAIR claimed to have grown to 33 chapters.  In another publication from the same month, it claimed to have a total of 32 chapters across the United States.  Five years later, it was claiming the same number of 32, "nationwide and in Canada."  Somehow it lost at least four United States chapters in the interim.

Former CAIR Community Organizer Arrested on Child Sex Charges.  Ahmed Saleem, a Muslim youth coordinator and former CAIR community organizer, was arrested along with 100 others in a sting operation on a child sex ring in Florida, police said in a conference on Tuesday [6/2/2015].  Saleem [...] was among 22 men accused by police of travelling to the home of a minor they met online to have sex.  In reality, police officers posed in a chatroom as a 12-year-old girl, and then arrested Saleem when he arrived at the house.

Phoenix protests Islamism.  Not missing an opportunity to agitate for sharia (speech criticizing Muhammad is condemned in sharia, or Islamic law), the Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations) took advantage of the controversy surrounding the rally and called a press conference to launch their own jihad against the characters of the cartoon-drawing coalition (bikers, veterans, street preachers, grandmothers, Middle Eastern Christians, retirees, etc. — basically proud Americans who love America).  "There are no good values in this [protest].  These [people] are certainly not anything that America is proud of," said Phoenix CAIR representative Yasir Shareef.  He did not comment on how he became the spokesman for America or its veterans on this issue, but he did go on to promise that the Muslim community "will not stand for bigotry, hate or racism of any type."

CAIR Coordinated w/ACLU to Smear Mohammed Cartoonists After Shooting.  The ACLU is not a free speech organization.  It does engage in stunts that make it look that way.  The ACLU is Islamist infiltrated and it backed Obama and Hillary's crackdown on Innocence of Muslims after the Benghazi attack. [...] You don't normally denounce someone after they were nearly killed in an attack by your people, but that's exactly what was going on here.

Muslim Congressmen Exhibit Outrageous Hypocrisy in Trying to Ban Dutch Politician Geert Wilders from U.S..  last week, two Muslim members of Congress, Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Andre Carson (D-IN), sent a letter to the State Department requesting that they deny a visa to Dutch politician Geert Wilders.  Wilders was coming to Washington, D.C. for a Capitol Hill event sponsored by Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Steve King (R-IA).  Unsuccessful in their attempts to have Wilders banned, Ellison, Carson and their associates from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) tried to disrupt a press conference on free speech with Wilders, Gohmert, and King in front of the U.S. Capitol yesterday [4/30/2015].

Islamo-Fascism and the War Against the Jews.  [David] Horowitz and [Robert] Spencer perform an important service in drawing attention to this document and to the political campaign that it has inspired.  The memo called for the creation of front organizations including the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Students Association, and the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Association for Palestine and the parent group of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR.  Another front group identified in the Holy Land memo was the International Institute for Islamic Thought, said to have invented the term "Islamophobia."

Senator Presses for Info on Huma's Special Gov't Status — and Her Emails.  Senator Chuck Grassley has sent two letters to the State Department to ask about Huma Abedin's special government status when she was a government employee — and for information on Abedin's email use while working for the government.  Abedin is a close aide to Hillary Clinton, and worked for the consulting firm Teneo (under a special government employee status) while working for Clinton.

Colonized by the Muslim Brotherhood.  We witness the Muslim Brotherhood's planned destruction of America in many areas of contemporary life.  A purposefully weak economy fails to produce the capitalist dynamism that has defined America for generations, and many millions remain unemployed.  Abroad, the Muslim Brotherhood's domination of American foreign policy instigated and backed the failed "Arab Spring," which may ultimately result in Iranian domination of the Middle East.  We feel their suffocating effects on our democracy every day, as our freedoms, traditions, opportunities, and rule of law slip away.  The people suffer as prices continue to rise and the public sinks into a bottomless pit of debt.  The hostile, conquered government in Washington strangles our liberty each time Obama, like a self-crowned emperor, passes new regulatory laws without Congress.

Who Are the Muslim Brotherhood-Linked Leaders Obama Met?  The White House has released the names of senior American Muslim leaders that President Obama met with personally last week.  The list of names was included on the transcript of the White House daily press briefing on Thursday [3/19/2015], despite journalists having requested the information much sooner.  Prior to that, the White House had refused to name the leaders.  Of course, there is nothing wrong with the President meeting with representatives from any faith community and with the Muslim community in particular.  Yet some of the individuals who met with the President have alarming links to the Muslim Brotherhood and organizations that have funded terrorism.

Huma Abedin's private emails, Muslim Brotherhood.  Hillary Clinton's Emailgate scandal is becoming more problematic by the day.  Turns out she exclusively used a private email account while personally prohibiting other State Department employees from doing the same.  One other State Department official evidently violated this policy:  Mrs. Clinton's deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin.  Her emails are of particular interest insofar as Ms. Abedin has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  That's the Islamist organization whose self-declared mission is "destroying Western civilization from within."

Egyptian Government Outraged That White House Hosted Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists.  The peerless Middle East Media Research Institute, better known as MEMRI, serves up another major story certain to be ignored by our betters in legacy media.  To wit:  the government of one-time ally Egypt is outraged that the Obama administration is fomenting civil unrest — again — in that country by propping up the Nazi-aligned terror group known as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypt: U.S. State Department Hosting Of MB Delegation — A Slap In The Face Of The War On Terrorism.  Several members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) recently reported on their social media accounts that a delegation of MB members had visited the U.S. State Department on January 27, 2015 and met with officials from the State Department and White House, as well as with members of Congress and representatives from American research institutes.  According to the MB reports, the purpose of the meeting was to recruit support for their opposition to the 'Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi regime in Egypt."  On its part, the American administration was embarrassed by the publication of the visit, but openly acknowledged it a few days later.

Islamic Groups: We Want Exemption From Anti-Jihad Prosecutions.  U.S.-based Islamist groups are pushing for rules that would shield Muslim political leaders and clerics from being charged with supporting jihad terrorism.  The demands are being pushed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, just before Obama is slated to headline three days of White House meetings this week on federal efforts to mitigate the jihadi violence that is emerging from the growing population of Muslim immigrants.

Blind Hate Drives Islamists to Absurdity.  One is a jihadist movement that seeks global dominance, beheading journalists, throwing gay people off of rooftops and massacring any perceived foe which crosses its path on the way to restoring a grand Islamic state.  The other is a sovereign state, a refuge for a people repeatedly targeted for annihilation throughout history.  It also provides medical treatment for Syrians who have been victims of attacks from Islamic State terrorists and the Assad regime.  Fighting for each apparently poses an equal threat.  So says Hussam Ayloush, the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Los Angeles director.

Muslim Brotherhood: White House Official Met Us at State Department.  A Muslim Brotherhood member who recently was hosted at the State Department along with several of the Islamist group's key allies now claims that a White House official also was present in that meeting, according to recent remarks.  Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member and former Egyptian parliamentarian, was in the United States late last month along with a delegation of fellow Brotherhood leaders and allies.

The Muslim Brotherhood Comes To The White House.  The Obama White House has finally released the names of the fourteen Muslim "leaders" who met with the President this past week.  Among the group — which included a comedian, along with a hijab-wearing basketball player and a handful of left wing activists — were a select few individuals with disturbingly close ties to the global Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR Official Whines The Term "Islamist" Is Offensive.  You know what most sane people (non-libs) find offensive?  Muslims indiscriminately killing thousands of people every month.

CAIR asks Fox News to drop 'Islamophobe' commentators.  How do you say "chutzpah" in Arabic?  For that's the most appropriate word to describe a Hamas-linked organization designated by the United Arab Emirates as a terror organization telling an American news operation to stop talking about jihad.  Recently, Sean Hannity's outstanding frankness was joined by Bill O'Reilly telling the truth on jihad.  And throughout the day, FNC has featured knowledgeable commenters, in addition to CAIR apologists, in a "fair and balanced" presentation — something CAIR does not want.

U.N. Calls for CIA 'Torture' Trials, CAIR Demands 'Accountability'.  A United Nations human rights official is calling for individuals who carried out, planned or authorized abusive practices against al-Qaeda detainees in the aftermath of 9/11 to be put on trial, saying the U.S. was obliged under international law "to bring those responsible to justice." [...] Meanwhile the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said the Senate Intelligence Committee's release of a declassified portion of a report on CIA interrogation and detention programs was insufficient, calling for the full 6,000 page report to be released, and for "accountability" for those who overstepped the mark.

Man arrested for threatening Ferguson police may have ties to radical group lauded by CAIR.  A Washington State man arrested for issuing interstate threats targeting Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson may have ties to the radical Islamist group known as "Al-Ummah" led by Jamil Abdullah Amin and Luqman Abdullah, two radical imams recently lauded by a Council on American Islamic Relations representative on a phone conference for the Muslims for Ferguson group as reported by Fox News.  Jaleel Tariq Abdul-Jabber, a Kirkland, Washington man and former convicted felon, was arrested for allegedly threatening to murder police in connection to ongoing protests in Ferguson, Missouri.  Abdul-Jabber, whose social media profile indicates that he self-identifies as a Muslim, reportedly wrote numerous threats targeting Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson, as well as other law enforcement officers.

White House Shoots Down Petition to Declare Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization.  The White House has officially rejected a 'We the People' petition calling for the U.S. Government to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization after more than a year and 200,000 signatures.  The petition, which was first posted on July 7, 2013, reached the necessary threshold for a response — 100,000 signatures — within 30 days.  However, the White House failed to respond until Monday [12/1/2014], when it issued an unequivocal 'no'.

UAE Lists American Muslim Groups As Terrorist Organizations.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling on the United Arab Emirates to delist it as a terrorist group.  The Muslim American Society also said it was "shocked" by the move and would seek U.S. government assistance.

Two US Islamic Groups, Including CAIR, Shocked to Find Themselves Designated As Terrorists.  Two Islamic groups in the U.S. that portray themselves as moderate and mainstream expressed shock to learn at the weekend that the United Arab Emirates had included them in a list of terrorist organizations.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which describes itself as "America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization," and the Muslim American Society (MAS), which calls itself "a religious community service organization," were among more than 80 groups whose designation was approved by the UAE cabinet and announced on Saturday [11/15/2014].

CAIR & a Flying Imam.  I would have thought I was reading the New York Times.  But no, it was the Washington Times, whose Andrea Noble gave a platform to notorious Islamists yesterday [10/15/2014], enabling them to masquerade as moderates who condemn Islamic State jihadists for purportedly running afoul of sharia law in their rampage through Iraq and Syria.  Ms. Noble helped the Council on American-Islamic Relations and Omar Shahin along by airbrushing their backgrounds:  CAIR is presented to the reader as a mainstream "Muslim organization" opposed to terrorism, with no mention of the fact that it is a Muslim Brotherhood creation conceived to promote Hamas [...]

CAIR Calls For Investigation Into Woman Who Banned Muslims From Her Shooting Range.  The woman who last month banned Muslims from entering her gun range could possibly be investigated by Eric Holder for violating federal laws prohibiting racial and religious discrimination.  Jennifer Wicks, a lawyer for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sent a letter to AG Eric Holder, asking him to investigate Jan Morgan.

The 3 greatest internal Islamic threats to U.S. National Security: CAIR, ISNA, MSA.  For those who stay informed on the threat posed by Islamists, this interview will reinforce what many have been talking about for years.  Dr. Mark Christian, an Egyptian-born Christian convert from Islam and who is related to high-ranking leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, is now engaged in a battle to root out the Brotherhood influence in what is called the Global Faith Institute, a project in Omaha, Nebraska.

Hamas-linked CAIR in Houston holds rally against ISIS and about 6 Muslims showed up.  [Video clip]

Breitbart Investigation Forces Transparency from CAIR-Connected Oklahoma City Mosque.  Shortly after Breitbart News revealed that the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) had deleted its past two Friday sermons from its website, the mosque responded by making the sermons again available to the public.

'How Can You Say It's Not Islamic?' Megyn Takes on Muslim Speaker Over Violence By Radical Islamists.  Megyn Kelly tonight [9/26/2014] took on Muslim speaker Mike Ghouse over radical Islam in the wake of the Oklahoma beheading.  "Islam stands for peace," CAIR said in a statement, stressing that the Oklahoma beheading "is not a representation of what our faith teaches."  "Islam does not stand for peace.  The word Islam in Arabic means submission," Brigitte Gabriel, president of Act! for America, said on "The Kelly File," charging CAIR with trying to deceive the public.

Has the New York Times Just Provided Proof of Muslim Brotherhood Influence Operations in the United States?  On June 13, 2012, five members of Congress called for an investigation into Muslim Brotherhood influence operations in the Obama administration.  The five members — Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Rooney (R-FL), and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) — were widely criticized for doing so, even by their own Republican leadership, including John McCain (R-AZ), John Boehner (R-OH), and Mike Rogers (R-MI).  At the time, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said, "It's not right to question the loyalty of fellow Americans without any evidence."  Well, now we have the evidence.

Behind Closed Doors, Cheney Tells Republicans That Obama Supported Muslim Brotherhood.  Dick Cheney spoke to House Republicans on Tuesday [9/9/2014] about the need for military action in Iraq.  With President Obama poised to give a major speech on Wednesday about military action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Cheney spoke to the assembled Republican congressmen about the situation in the Middle East at their weekly caucus meeting.  And while the GOP has been fiercely divided over foreign policy in recent years, Cheney didn't wade into that debate, instead opting to pillory Obama in front of an audience giving him "rapt attention."

Muslim Brotherhood front group, CAIR, attacks Oklahoma lawmaker for telling the truth about Islam.  Representative John Bennett from Sallisaw says he's tired of being politically correct when it comes to terrorist actions being linked to Muslims extremists.  CAIR Oklahoma chapter is now demanding he issue an apology for what they call "derogatory statements."  The leader of the Hamas-linked Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Wednesday [9/3/2014] called on Republican leaders to repudiate remarks made by state Rep. John Bennett on his private Facebook account.

Jimmy Carter Tells Islamic Society: The Principles of Allah 'Will Bring Peace and Justice to All'.  Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit.  He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world.  Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its "rigid" views.  Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more "rigid."  For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn't allow Christians to build any churches.  Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians.  If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death.  One can be an apostate just by having a Muslim father.

The Editor says...
A Muslim father?  Such as Barack H. Obama, Senior?

President Jimmy Carter to be keynote speaker at Muslim convention in Detroit.  The Islamic Society of North America or ISNA, the nation's largest Muslim group, will hold its 51st annual convention in Detroit's Cobo Center Friday [8/29/2014] through Sept. 1, and will feature former President Jimmy Carter as the keynote speaker. [...] The convention's opening session Friday will include words from Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, the national leader of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim member of Congress, will also be speaking Saturday.

Congress Seeks to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terror Group.  Congress is moving to officially designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and impose sanctions on any person who provides the group and its affiliates with "material support," according to a copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.  The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014 — sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) — seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization's political center in Egypt as well as scores of affiliates operating across America and Europe, according to the bill.

Muslim Brotherhood leader sentenced to life in prison.  An Egyptian court has sentenced the Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohamed Badie, and 36 other Islamists to life in prison, and confirmed death sentences for 10 others, most of them on the run.  Badie — convicted of involvement in deadly protests — had already received death sentences in two other cases in a crackdown on Islamist opposition after last year's military overthrow of Mohamed Morsi.

CAIR Calls On Critics To Highlight Muslim Stereotypes In FX's 'Tyrant'.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations wants television reviewers to address what the group sees as inflammatory stereotypes in the new FX drama Tyrant.

Council On American-Islamic Relations Seeks To Undermine The Land Of The Free.  The fact pattern and references to anti-Islamic "hate speech" sound depressingly similar to so many other cases abroad.  Yet this incident occurred courtesy of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Chicago chapter, showing how precious and precarious American free speech rights are.

Another Sheriff Buckles To CAIR.  There's an old saying that people will only change when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing.  When applied to cowardice in the face of Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S., far too many institutions choose fear over courage.  The latest example comes courtesy of a KAKE news report out of Wichita, KS.  If this keeps up, the pain of staying the same will only exceed the pain of changing when there's blood in the streets.  Sheriffs with badges are required — REQUIRED — to eschew cowardice.  Yet, far too few do.

The Roots of CAIR's Intimidation Campaign.  Though the United States had been a cash cow for Hamas, it was thus a perilous time for the organization when 25 of its members and supporters gathered at a Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia on October 27, 1993.  They were unaware that the FBI was monitoring their deliberations.  The confab was a brainstorming exercise:  How best to back Hamas and derail Oslo while concealing these activities from the American government?

David Cameron Orders Urgent Probe into Muslim Brotherhood; Fears Planned Attack.  David Cameron has ordered an urgent review of the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood, because of fears the group might be planning an attack on the UK. The assessment will involve The Secret Intelligence Service (nicknamed MI6), who deal with external threats and Britain's internal intelligence service:  MI5.  The review will look at the "philosophy and activities" of the Muslim Brotherhood, to establish how many leaders of the group have been allowed in the country.  It will also investigate whether the Brotherhood held a top level meeting in London last year.

Muslim Brotherhood-Tied Activist to Host Fundraiser for Democrat Gerry Connolly.  A Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated activist whose organization recently came under fire for holding an anti-Semitic rally in support of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will head a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly (Va.).  U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood allies Akram Elzend and Sameh Elhennawy will co-host a fundraiser for Connolly later this month at the Fairfax residence of Mohamed Mohamed, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Is CAIR a RICO case?  CAIR was founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmed, who had ties with the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was established by the terrorist organization Hamas.  Therefore, it is an outgrowth of the IAP. It opened its first office in Washington, D.C. with a donation from the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the largest Islamic charity in the U.S.  CAIR should be, but is not, registered as a foreign agent.  Only 1% of its total revenue comes from membership dues; the balance of its sponsorship is from such foreign sources as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.  One of CAIR's unspoken objectives is the Islamification of America.

CAIR Trying to Have Anti-Islamist Muslim Kicked Off Religious Freedom Panel.  Having failed in an earlier attempt to scupper the appointment of a prominent anti-Islamist Muslim to a statutory international religious freedom watchdog, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is actively trying to have him removed from the post.

Exposed: The Muslim Brotherhood / Al-Qaeda Connection.  As former Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi's trials continue, it's enlightening to consider what is likely to be one of the centerpieces of the trial:  longstanding accusations that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood party worked with foreign terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda, against the national security of Egypt.

Mulsim Brotherhood in the Oval Office.  The MB ultimately would like to eliminate all the Christians, all the Jews, and all the Buddhists, all the Hindus; every single infidel on the planet, while establishing a Global Caliphate run by, of course, the Muslim Brotherhood.

Muslim Brotherhood Leader Meets Obama in White House.  A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood was recently hosted at the White House for a meeting with President Barack Obama, prompting an outcry from critics of the global Islamist organization.  Anas Altikriti, a top British lobbyist for the Muslim Brotherhood whose father heads Iraq's Muslim Brotherhood party, recently met with the president and Vice President Joe Biden as part of a delegation discussing problems in Iraq.

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood declared 'terrorist group'.  The military-backed interim Egyptian government has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group after blaming it for a deadly attack on a police HQ earlier this week.  The group, whose candidate Mohammed Morsi won the presidential poll last year before being deposed by the military, had already been outlawed.  Thousands of its supporters have been arrested in a crackdown.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Man in the White House.  When the State Department announced early in October that it was cutting hundreds of millions in military and other aid to Egypt, it was yet another manifestation of Barack Obama's unstinting support for the Muslim Brotherhood, a support that has already thrown Egypt back into the Russian orbit.  The aid cut was essentially giving the Egyptian people a choice between Muslim Brotherhood rule and economic collapse.  Nothing else could have been expected from Obama, who has been a Brotherhood man from the beginning.  Obama's support for the Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his presidency.

Morsi Trial destined to lay bare Obama's Muslim Brotherhood connections.  After Obama's defeat at the hands of Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the Egyptians — which he still refuses to admit — Obama continues to punish Egypt and its army.  In Obama's failure to avoid an economic crisis in America, how is it he has time for War Games in Egypt?  Obama should be truly worried about how the trail of ousted President Mohammad Morsi will lead to the truth coming out on his relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and their common goals.

Bachmann blasts Islam, CAIR fights back.  [Rep. Michele] Bachmann's recent comments during a Minnesota talk radio interview went unnoticed by the American public, but not by the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) which immediately denounced her claims.  Responding to Christian radio host Jan Markel, Bachmann said, "We're seeing this all across America.  It's like groups want to top each other and be the new latest, largest mosque in North America.  What we're told is that many of them are funded by the Saudi Arabians or the Qataris.  And so many of these mosques' funding actually comes from foreign countries that have interests in advancing the goals and beliefs of the violent Muslim Brotherhood."  To some that might seem to be a conspiracy theory or Islamophobia.  The problem is that Bachmann is closer to fact than fiction.

Extortion — The Brotherhood's M-O.  When not pretending to distance themselves from flat-out terrorist outfits like al Qaeda (the better to have Kool-Aid gulpers at the White House regard them as "moderates"), the Brothers leverage the atmosphere of intimidation created by violent jihad to advance the stealth jihad.  Where necessary, the Brothers — while piously disavowing violence — will stoke the violence themselves. Remember, the Hamas terrorist organization is the Muslim Brotherhood — the global organization's self-proclaimed Palestinian branch whose support has been a top priority of the Brotherhood's international franchises (very much including in the United States) since Hamas's inception.

Dangerous Times: The Crisis-Monger.  The Center for Policy Studies has now exposed secret money streams from the Muslim Brotherhood to the Democrats.  That hidden flow of cash explains everything that made no sense before, going back to 9/11/01.  The MBs run layers of shell corporations to hide money for the Democrats from the IRS — which isn't looking very hard.  The Clinton Center is one major conduit.  The Obama campaign is another.

Burning CAIR's Islamophobia Report.  Does CAIR seek to suppress the free speech of any group with which it disagrees?  Why does CAIR label speech it disagrees with as "Islamophobic"?  One could literally write a book critiquing the intellectual shortcomings of the 148-page report.  Certainly not written at the reading level of "The 9/11 Commission Report," it reads more along the lines of a 7th Grade English paper derived from the Cliff Notes version of a Dr. Seuss book.  To frame their thesis, CAIR lumps a number of individuals and organizations into an "American Islamophobia network." Sounds ominous, doesn't it?

Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrates Clinton Camp, FBI Offices.  As Cairo bans the radical Muslim Brotherhood and jails thousands of its leaders, the terror-supporting group is making deeper inroads into our own government.  The extent of the Brotherhood's influence on operations — within the State Department and even the FBI — is stunning and demands further investigation.

CAIR collects millions from foreign donors thanks to non-profit shell game.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conceals donations from overseas through a series of shell organizations, according to documents from court actions involving the Muslim advocacy group.  Since its founding in 1994, CAIR has presented itself to American Muslims and the media as a single organization centered on American concerns.  But it shows a different face to the IRS, with multiple corporate entities that conceal the large financial donations that come to CAIR from Middle East sources.

FBI Instructed to Break Rules Banning Interactions With Terrorist Co-Conspirator CAIR.  CAIR was determined to be related to the web of terrorist financing during the Holy Land Foundation trials in Dallas, a trial which resulted in guilty verdicts.  Afterwards, the FBI issued a blanket policy:  no cooperation in the field with CAIR.  But the FBI's Office of Public Affairs issued instructions to ignore the policy.  Why are DOJ press flunkies in Washington, D.C. issuing directives to FBI field offices about how to deal with CAIR?  The answer to this question lies at the heart of the scandal, demonstrating that the politicized lawlessness of the Eric Holder Justice Department now is affecting the FBI.

CAIR Denounces Wide Range of Critics as 'Islamophobes' in New Report.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a report titled "Legislating Fear — Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States" on Thursday [9/19/2013].  The report profiles and accuses several individuals, websites, organizations of being anti-Islamic and spreading so called "Islamophobia" throughout the United States.  The controversial organization, that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the U.S. government's 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial and reportedly built ties with the current administration is hitting back at its critics in this report.

Muslim Brotherhood Official, Former Clinton Foundation Employee Arrested.  A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday [9/17/2013] and charged with inciting violence.  Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood's top communications officials until Egyptian security forces seized him as part of a wider crackdown on officials loyal to ousted former President Mohamed Morsi.

Clinton Muslim Brotherhood Operative Arrested in Egypt.  The arrest of Gehad el-Haddad for inciting violence is a sobering reminder not just of how close Hillary Clinton's network is to the brutal Muslim Brotherhood, the Left's favorite Islamofascist cell, but also of the extent to which Islamist enemies of the United States have infiltrated the American political establishment.

The Clintons Employ Muslim Brotherhood Officials? You Can't Be Serious.  I don't know who is more shocked about this, me or Huma Abedin, but it turns out that a former top Clinton Foundation official is also ... a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who has just been arrested for — you'll never guess — inciting violence in Egypt.  Not to worry, I'm sure it was only moderate violence.

Does the Qur'an Teach Hate?  On September 11, 2013, a public information officer for Palm Beach County, Florida named John Jamason posted a message on his personal Facebook page:  "Never forget.  There is no such thing as radical Islam.  All Islam is radical.  There may be Muslims who don't practice their religion, much like others.  The Quran is a book that preaches hate."  The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately complained, and demanded that the county turn over to them everything that Jamason had written from a county computer over the previous month. [...] Left unexamined in the controversy was whether or not what Jamason said was true.

Muslim Brotherhood's World Domination Blueprint.  From its inception in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood has been the subject of persecution due to its commitment to a single goal — transitioning the world into an Islamic empire.

Egyptian Pol: 'Very Strong Perception' Obama Backs Muslim Brotherhood.  Speaking on August 22, the head of Egypt's Social Democratic Party Mohamed Abou El-Ghar said:  "America is losing Egypt... There is a very strong perception that they are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and they are against other parties."  El-Ghar said this perception began growing when Senator John McCain (R-AZ) met with representatives from the Muslim Brotherhood in February 2012 but would not meet with with representatives from other parties.

Moderate Islamists? Really?  [Scroll down]  Anyone notice one of the key problematic words?  It's "moderate" — especially when connected with Islamists.  (One of the others is "democratic" — especially when democracy leads straight to the Muslim Brotherhood.)  There is nothing moderate about the Muslim Brotherhood.  Now, to be clear, they may not be as immediately or as indiscriminately violent as al-Qaeda, but Andrew McCarthy refers to the Brothers as "Muslim supremacists" for a reason.

What Is the Difference Between 'Extremist' and 'Moderate' Muslim Brothers?  It is iron dogma for the politically correct establishment in the U.S. that "moderate Muslims," which for that establishment includes every last Muslim in the U.S., abhor and despise "extremists," whom they don't even consider Muslims, and whose violence and supremacism they reject.  That's the story, anyway.

Not a Legitimate Party.  I find it absolutely bizarre how little attention is paid to the fundamental nature of the Muslim Brotherhood.  It is not a legitimate political party.  Its objects are not consistent with democracy or democratic goals.  It is, as Steve Hayward concisely commented, "a fascist political faction with murderous intent.  Full stop."  Its goal is the (re)establishment of an Islamic caliphate.

Obama's Strange Love Affair with the Muslim Brotherhood.  It's hard to fathom how or why our administration ever thought the Muslim Brotherhood saw democracy as other than a means to an end — and a particularly repellent one at that — in the first place.  It's not as if the MB is subtle.  They have proclaimed who they are since their founding by Hasan al Banna in 1928 and have not wavered in any significant way since in their global jihadist goals.

Islamic group says UCF professor promotes anti-Muslim hate.  The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is accusing a UCF professor of teaching anti-Muslim bigotry.  Officials with the group sent a complaint to the University of Central Florida asking it to review the content of professor Jonathan Matusitz's courses.  Matusitz, 36, has taught several communication classes at UCF, including one called Terrorism and Communication and another on intercultural communication.

Islamizing the Public Schools.  The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressuring public schools in this country to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to deny comparable accommodations for students of other faiths.  For example, CAIR's instructional material for teachers entitled "An Educator's Guide to Islamic Religious Practices" advises schools to permit Muslim students who wish to attend Friday congregational worship (known as Jum'ah) to "request a temporary release from school."

CAIR pushes 'hijab friendly' policy in American prisons.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is working to make American prisons more "hijab-friendly," according to a report from Al Arabiya.  "I'm working on several pending cases in different states... and I'm in touch with an attorney for the Department of Justice's Office of Civil Rights," Nadhira al-Khalili, legal counsel for CAIR, told the Saudi-owned news outlet.  The goal for CAIR is to make the hijab a permissible, official staple of Muslim women's attire, including for photos, in prisons nationwide.

CAIR Lectures US: Boston Jihadis Weren't Influenced By Islam!  In the wake of revelations that the Boston Marathon Bombers were engaged in Jihad, or holy war, CAIR held a press conference in Chicago today [4/19/2013] to remind Americans that this has nothing to do with Islam.

Largest U.S. Muslim Group Features Terror in Flagship Publication.  The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest Muslim organization in the United States and Canada.  It encompasses youth movements — including the largest Islamic collegiate group, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) — as well as hundreds of mosques throughout North America.  ISNA issues a bi-monthly publication titled Islamic Horizons.  At face value, the magazine seems innocuous.  However, it is filled with features and advertisements linked to radical Islamic thought and activity.

White House Partners with Muslim Brotherhood Front.  The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial, recently toured the White House and met with multiple officials.  According to the group, Paul Monteiro, Associate Director of the Office of Public Engagement, "cited ISNA as his primary means of outreach to the American Muslim community."

The spook who couldn't see the perils of jihad.  On Feb. 13, 2010, [John] Brennan gave a speech at the New York University School of Law that was organized by ISNA, using it as a platform to again argue that we should not identify our enemy using the religious term "jihad."  The tragic irony is that Mr. Brennan decided to make his case for not conflating jihad and violence at an event organized by the very same ISNA that has explicitly used the religious term "jihad" to support violence.  In December 1986, ISNA's official magazine "Islamic Horizons" ran an article proclaiming that "jihad of the sword is the actual taking up of arms against the evil situation with the intention of changing it," that "anyone killed in jihad is rewarded with Paradise," and that "a believer who participates in jihad is superior to a believer who does not."

Mohamed Morsi Is a Scandal Bigger than Benghazi.  It's no news that Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood is an extremist, anti-Semitic monstrosity. [...] Obama's top intelligence people have been assuring us that the Brotherhood is a moderate, secular, heterogeneous organization and a prospective American partner, for example, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper last year.  Republican congressmen like Michele Bachmann who objected to administration coddling of the Brotherhood have been vilified as extremists by the mainstream of their own party.  On the strength of a 2010 video tape long known to specialists, the establishment has suddenly discovered that this moderate, secular organization is a nest of Jew-hating vipers.

Fraud and Racketeering at CAIR.  The Islamist tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood are every bit as unethical and as abusive as their parent organization.  In Australia the country's leading Islamic group is under investigation for not only defrauding the Australian government, but for also defrauding its own associated Muslim schools.

Jihad is 'getting to a better place,' says CAIR campaign.  An Islamic-advocacy group linked to terrorism is launching a public-relations campaign to argue that jihad doesn't mean Islamic holy war, but instead a "concerted effort ... with the purpose of getting to a better place."  However, the campaign, which is being launched Dec. 14 by an affiliate of the Council on American Islamic Relations, isn't a formal religious declaration by United States or Arab Islamic authorities, and it does clash with orthodox judgments dating back 1,400 years to the beginning of Islam.

Benghazi explained, Part III.  The so-called "Arab Spring" is an initiative by Obama and his foreign policy advisers, Clinton, in her capacity of Secretary of State, and others including some of the most powerful people in the world.  International bankers, the power brokers and string pullers.  It is a plan to reshape the Middle East and North Africa, and change the geopolitical balance of power.  It's not about some feel-good mission to free the oppressed.  Never was.  It's about the U.S., through the CIA, using groups ideologically aligned to al Qaeda aligned to overthrow various Middle East nations to install regimes controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Pelosi holds secret fundraiser with Islamists, Hamas-linked groups.  Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement.  The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Nancy Pelosi's Secret CAIR Fundraiser.  For Pelosi to appear at a fundraiser with Nihad Awad is as revolting, and should be as newsworthy, as if she had appeared at a fundraiser with David Duke or Bull Connor.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department.  CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

Report: Islamist radicals find warm welcome in Obama White House.  White House visitor records show that administration officials have hosted numerous White House meetings with a series of U.S.-based Muslim political groups that have close ties to jihadi groups and push to reduce anti-terrorism investigations.  The visits were discovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which compared the Obama White House's visitor records with its database of Islamist advocacy groups.  For example, the records show that officials from the Council on American Islamic Relations have visited the White House 20 times, according to the organization's report.

Radical Extremists Visiting The White House?  Steve Emerson and John Rossomondo have studied White House visitor logs, and compared them to lists of known radical extremists.

A Red Carpet for Radicals at the White House.  A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.  Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.  The IPT made the discovery combing through millions of White House visitor log entries.

Behind the Veil of Islam: The Grand Jihad.  A foreign enemy is undermining America.  An organization founded in Egypt in 1928, sworn to eradicate democracy, is working to raise their black flag over America and every other nation in the world.  With plans to destroy our Constitution, it has infiltrated the highest levels of government, defense, and law enforcement.  Bearded and robed, it walks the streets of our cities and lurks in hostile ghettos.  It is the Muslim Brotherhood.  Why does the Obama administration refuse to even name it?

Huma Abedin's Muslim Minority Affairs — It's Not Just a Journal.  "Assimilation is a crime against humanity."  So said Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Islamic supremacist who is both prime minister of Turkey and a close chum of President Obama.  The assertion ought to be infamous.  But this is, after all, Islam we are talking about — meaning, we are not talking about it.  You won't read it in the American media, nor will you hear it from our bipartisan Beltway profiles in courage.  Both the Obama Left and the Republican establishment are deeply invested in the fantasy that Erdogan, like Islam itself, is our moderate ally — ironic, given that Erdogan himself is profoundly offended at the very suggestion that there is such a thing as "moderate Islam."

Security clearance compromise for Islam.  A magician typically succeeds when the attention of the audience is diverted from his main activity onto some distraction.  President Obama has raised this sort of deflection into a political art form.  Take, for example, the matter of revelations by five members of Congress and the Center for Security Policy that there appear to be a number [of] individuals working for or with the Obama administration with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  The possibility that their influence may be helping to shape U.S. policy in ways that increasingly align it with the demands, ambitions and goals of the Brotherhood and other Islamists is a national security problem of the first order.

Huma Abedin's Ties to Muslim Brotherhood Deeper Than Rep. Bachmann Suspected.  Rep. Michele Bachmann's concerns about Sec. of State Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin have been openly criticized by many, yet disproved by none.  Far from it in fact, as the alleged ties between Huma's family and the Muslim Brotherhood have been broadly substantiated.

Romney Urged to Address Muslim Brotherhood Infiltration.  It is a subject that Mitt Romney and Barack Obama don't want to talk about.  But former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on Wednesday [8/8/2012] offered a virtual indictment of top State Department official Huma Abedin as a security risk and said that Obama's embrace of the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood constitutes a national security crisis and should be a major campaign issue.

To Vet or Not to Vet Huma Abedin.  In light of Rabbi David Saperstein's recent condemnation of Michele Bachmann's concerns about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's closest aide, Huma Abedin, it is important to offer proof that Bachmann's concerns both are appropriate and are not emblematic of a witch hunt.  This proof is offered in the very detailed-oriented work of Andrew Bostom.  His recent 9,000-word article offers a comprehensive overview of the interlocking ties among Muslim Brotherhood operatives and proves that the Abedin family has very close and personal ties to the Brotherhood.  Thus, an investigation that would include "subpoena power and access to classified materials" is very much in order.

Obama Administration Paves the Way for Sharia Law.  Last October, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including [Thomas] Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech.  Representatives from the Islamist side included Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  The ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding trial in 2008, as well as functioning as a Muslim Brotherhood Front.

"Islamic Democracy" Does Not Make Statesmen Out of Terrorists — Or Politics Out of Jihad.  The Obama administration will not explain how it came to issue a visa to Hani Nour Eldin, a known member of the Egyptian terrorist organization Ga'amat al-Islamia, the Islamic Group (IG).  The explanation is not forthcoming because what it portends is even more sinister than this one infuriating incident.  To call the IG a "terrorist organization" is not just purple prose.  The IG is a terrorist organization that has carried out actual mass-murder attacks.  There is a formal legal process under which such groups are "designated" as terrorist organizations.  The IG has long been formally designated under that process.

Where is Huma Abedin's Security Clearance Form?  The head of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress (CAP) is defending controversial State Department official Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is suspected of playing a role in Obama Administration "engagement" with the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood.  Neera Tanden, president and CEO of CAP and Counselor for CAP's Action Fund, has sent out an email defending Abedin and asking that Rep. Michele Bachmann be thrown off the House Intelligence Committee for asking questions about the vetting process that Abedin was supposed to go through.

Why Is the Pentagon Listening to Hamas-Linked CAIR?  Recently the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked the Defense Department to drop yet another counter-terror trainer:  the Iranian ex-Muslim Reza Kahlili.  Surprisingly enough in this hyper-politically correct age, when it seems as if the Obama administration cannot accommodate Islamic supremacist demands fast enough, the Pentagon refused to budge.  This was widely hailed as a rare defeat for CAIR; unfortunately, it is nothing of the kind, and manifests the deeper problem that currently besets the Defense Department and the entire Washington establishment.

Why Michele Bachmann Is Right About Keith Ellison.  Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has accused Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) of having a "long record of being associated" with the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Brotherhood.  Evoking the days of McCarthyism, a common charge being leveled at Bachmann these days, Ellison responded:  "I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood."  He accused Bachmann of religious bigotry.

Proof that Huma Abedin Has Muslim Brotherhood Connections.  Michele Bachmann and four other Republican congressional representatives requested "that no Muslim Brotherhood-associated entity or individual [be] placed into a position of honor or trust within the programs and operations of the Department of State unless he or she has publicly condemned and disclaimed the previously stated goals of the Muslim Brotherhood."  At no time did these congressional representatives imply that Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff for the State Department, was "part of a nefarious conspiracy."

Is Huma Abedin the New Alger Hiss?  Is Huma Abedin to the Muslim Brotherhood what Alger Hiss was to the Soviet Union?  Why are Republican Senator John McCain, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rodgers (R-MI) acting in the growing Abedin controversy as Washington Establishment Democrats of the 1940s did in the Hiss episode?  Which is to say, writing off the dangers of a foreign enemy whose goal is to infiltrate the U.S. government — because, well, the people in question are part of the Washington Establishment?

Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood: Closely Connected.  Senator John McCain ought to be embarrassed.  So should House Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Mike Rogers, the former FBI agent who chairs the Select Committee on Intelligence.  These pillars of the Republican establishment have been championing the cause of Huma Abedin, the deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Ms. Abedin's name arose, along with several others, in connection with questions pressed by five conservative House Republicans regarding Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the United States government.

Rep. Gohmert pleads for media investigation into Muslim Brotherhood influence.  Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert doubled down on warnings of Muslim Brotherhood influence in America Thursday while taking a shot at the media for not investigating his claims further.  The Republican suggested reporters were more interested in attacking him than assessing the merits of five letters Gohmert and four GOP colleagues — including Rep. Michele Bachmann — wrote in June.  The letters ask federal inspectors general to look at U.S. officials with alleged ties to the Muslim organization — most notably State Department Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.

Huma Abedin's Brotherhood Ties Are Not Just a Family Affair.  Senator John McCain's claim that concerns about Huma Abedin are a smear based on "a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations" proves more embarrassing by the day.  In fact, to the extent it addressed Ms. Abedin, the letter sent to the State Department's inspector general by five House conservatives actually understated the case.  The letter averred that Abedin "has three family members — her late father, her mother and her brother — connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations."  It turns out, however, that Abedin herself is directly connected to Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure involved in the financing of al-Qaeda.

FBI, DOJ Sued for Info on Mueller's Secret Meeting with Radical Islamic Organizations.  I've written previously about the FBI's Muslim sensitivity training programs.  WorldNetDaily has done some outstanding reporting on workshops run by the FBI that "educate" agents about Muslim customs and beliefs in an attempt to help them to "break down barriers" and foster "mutual understanding."  Well, now it appears the FBI has taken another giant step down a very dangerous path with FBI Director Robert Mueller's secret meeting with radical Islamic organizations and allowing them effectively to "edit" the FBI's training manuals.

CAIR Strikes Out.  It's always a happy day when would-be censors fail to silence voices they don't agree with, and it's particularly satisfying when the losers are a well-known crowd of politically correct anti-1st Amendment vigilantes.  The losers in this case are the hyperactive folks over at CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and their intended victim is "Reza Kahlili," the former member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps who for some years worked inside that murderous organization on behalf of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The Unholy Trinity.  The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has announced former CAIR Director Dr. Bassem Khafagi will be running for President of Egypt.  Let's explore why this mainstream news non-event is such an important element of U.S. policy, both foreign and domestic.

Partners in Crime.  The Islamic Society of North American (ISNA) is an organization linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.  ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror financing trial ever held.  If you go to the ISNA website, you will find a very interesting list called the Partners of ISNA.

Under Oath, Alamoudi Ties MAS To Brotherhood.  The Muslim American Society (MAS) was created as a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in America, and continues to serve that function today, a man who once was one of the most influential Muslim political leaders testified in a Virginia courtroom Wednesday [3/14/2012].  "Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood," Abdurrahman Alamoudi told federal investigators in a January interview from a federal correctional facility.  On the witness stand, Alamoudi claimed not to remember everything he said, but accepted that he had made the statement after government lawyers showed him records of the interview.  Alamoudi promised "to testify truthfully and completely at any grand juries, trials or other proceedings in the United States" as part of a 2004 guilty plea.  He admitted engaging in illegal transactions with Libya and facilitating a Libyan plot to assassinate then-Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah.

If You See Something, Shut Up.  [M. Zudi] Jasser has long argued — and he's hardly alone in this — that the leaders of some of the wealthiest and most powerful organizations that claim to represent American Muslims are not as moderate as they'd have you believe.  Prominent among such organizations is CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which appears to have been the driving force behind the coverage in the Times and in the Village Voice before that.

Radical Muslims, Environmentalists, and the Green Jihad.  If the entire earth is a mosque, as [Ibrahim Abdul] Matin maintains, then Allah's boundaries are boundless, and this means that simultaneously Americans must live under the theocratic dictates of Allah, and environmentalism can easily be used alongside Sharia law to help bring America to its knees under Islamic jihadist control.  While many on the left would naively consider such a possibility beyond the pale, something along these lines is exactly what the Muslim Brotherhood has in mind for the future of America.

The convert-or-die religion expects tolerance.
CAIR pressures retired general, critic of Islam, to back out of West Point event.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations announced Monday night [1/30/2012] that it had successfully prevented retired Lieutenant General William G. "Jerry" Boykin from speaking at an upcoming prayer breakfast at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.  "We welcome Mr. Boykin's withdrawal from this event and hope that the speaker who replaces him will offer cadets a spiritual message that promotes tolerance and mutual understanding," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a statement.

Free speech — for some.  According to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), there is a grave threat to America that must be suppressed at all costs.  The threat is that Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin might be allowed to exercise his constitutionally guaranteed right to free speech.  This proposition is bizarre on multiple levels.  For one, Gen. Boykin, who is a friend and greatly admired colleague of mine, is one of the United States' most accomplished and decorated military heroes. ... For another, Gen. Boykin is also an ordained minister.

Delta Force Hero Can't Speak at West Point Because of his Christian Beliefs.  A three-star Army general and war hero cannot speak at West Point because he's an outspoken Christian.  So the Obama administration's hostility toward religion — and especially Christians — continues even to the detriment of our men and women in uniform. ... Evidently it's not politically correct to suggest that blowing up children is the devil's work.  After heavy pressure, General Boykin chose to withdraw.  This soldier fears no foe, but the situation evolved in a direction where his message of faith and courage would be overshadowed by controversy to the possible detriment of the West Point cadets.

Blacklist.  It often is said that our soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and Marines serve to "protect our freedoms" and "defend our liberties."  All true.  Now consider what took place this week at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

FBI Learning to Disconnect the Dots.  A new campaign has been opened by Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the United States against federal agencies charged with conducting counterterrorism investigations.  The strategic goal is to eradicate completely all references to Islam, Muslims, or the Qu'ran from training materials on violent extremism and terrorism.  Spokesmen for the Ikhwan are threatening the Department of Justice to get rid of the "anti-Muslim" training materials, or else the feds can kiss all the invaluable cooperation they're getting from the "community" goodbye.

The Jihad Lawyer.  The Muslim Brotherhood, according to a 2004 Chicago Tribune exposé, operates in the U.S. "under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews.  One of the nation's major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members."  The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated, in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house."

Roll back the Muslim Brotherhood.  In recent weeks, we have been put on notice repeatedly:  Absent a fundamental course correction, America will go the way of Europe and others before it, succumbing to an insidious totalitarian doctrine known as Shariah whose purpose, in the words of its prime practitioners — the Muslim Brotherhood — is to "destroy Western civilization from within."

Does Anyone CAIR Anymore?  In the '90s, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) successfully marketed itself as the largest advocacy group for Muslim-Americans, shrewdly linking its mission to that of the civil rights movement.  "We are similar to a Muslim NAACP," winked spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.  But the group's aims seemed less about civil rights and more about intimidating people into silence.

The CIA Should Be A Bit More CAIRless.  This week, a three-day conference hosted by the CIA on "homegrown radicalization" was supposed to have taken place at CIA headquarters.  It did not.  The conference was abruptly canceled — or, softening the blow, "postponed."  Question:  Did pressure from what we might (and should) call a certain "homegrown radical" group — the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — make this happen?

CAIR is the Great Enemy of the Truth.  In its latest fundraising effort, the Council on American-Islamic Relations ("CAIR") accuses those who oppose its agenda of engaging in "fear-mongering" and spreading "misinformation" about Islam and American Muslims.  The reality, however, is that it is CAIR who spreads misinformation and who engages in the tactics and politics of fear.  CAIR is lying about so-called anti-Sharia initiatives — using misinformation and the politics of fear — to raise money.

The West Courts the Muslim Brotherhood — and Its Own Destruction.  The suicidal side of the Western elites' pervasive tendency toward fantasy-based policy making was on full display last week when the U.S. and the European Union both announced that they were opening formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group dedicated, in its own words, to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house."

Congressman calls for IRS investigation of CAIR.  Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf has called on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to investigate whether the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) illegally received or solicited funds from foreign governments or agents.  Wolf's request comes on the heels of recent information released by the IRS that the Muslim advocacy group — and un-indicted co-conspirator in a 2007 terrorist funding trial — lost its tax-exempt status due to a repeated failure to file the necessary tax forms.

Engaging the Muslim Brotherhood?  Politico reports that the Obama administration has decided to sit down with the Muslim Brotherhood.  "The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing ... It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency," an official said who spoke to Reuters on the condition of anonymity.  The reasoning wears thin, however, for several reasons.

CAIR Loses Tax-Exempt Status.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has lost its tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service for failing to file legally required annual reports for three consecutive years, the federal agency said.  CAIR is one of 275,000 groups targeted by the IRS for being out of compliance with filing requirements.  "The IRS believes the vast majority of these organizations are defunct, but it also announced special steps to help any existing organizations to apply for reinstatement of their tax-exempt status," the agency said in announcing the action.

CAIR Taps Hizballah Apologist For Tampa Office.  For a group which claims to stand against terrorism, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) made an odd choice for the new chief of its Tampa chapter.  Hassan Shibly has a track record of defending terrorist groups and acting as an apologist for radical Islam.  Following the 2006 Israel-Lebanon War, Shibly granted legitimacy to Hizballah by characterizing it as a "resistance movement" that provides valued social services to the Lebanese people.  "They're absolutely not a terrorist organization," Shibly said, and "any war against them is illegitimate."

Islamic Group Asks Napolitano To Investigate 'Islamophobic' Trainers.  An Islamic civil rights group is asking the Secretary of Homeland Security to investigate whether the people in charge of training national security personnel are "Islamophobic."  In a letter to Janet Napolitano, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, called for an agency-wide probe to determine if the trainers "offer hostile, stereotypical and grossly inaccurate information about Muslims and Islam" as part of their training procedures.

Enabling the Muslim Brotherhood in America.  The Muslim Brotherhood's mask is slipping in Egypt.  Small "d" democrats there and elsewhere are alarmed by top Brotherhood officials who now aver openly what has been utterly predictable:  Once in power they will impose shariah — the totalitarian, supremacist politico-military-legal program practiced in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Somalia, Sudan and increasingly elsewhere.  The prospect that the most populous Arab nation — one that sits astride the strategic Suez Canal and has a vast American-supplied arsenal — is heading in such an ominous direction is made all the more remarkable since evidence continues to accumulate that the Obama administration has been enabling the rise of the Ikhwan (as the Muslim Brotherhood, or MB, is known in Arabic).

Did Obama and Holder Scuttle Terror Finance Prosecutions?  A number of leaders of Islamic organizations (all of whom publicly opposed the King hearings on Muslim radicalization) were about to be indicted on terror finance support charges by the U.S. attorney's office in Dallas, which had been investigating the case for most of the past decade.  But those indictments were scuttled last year at the direction of top-level political appointees within the Department of Justice (DOJ) — and possibly even the White House.

Obama Empire Strikes Back on My PJM 'Holdergate' Reporting.  [Scroll down]  But now we're starting to get wind of the Obama administration's response.  Fearful that this could easily turn into "Holdergate," the administration is trying to spin its way out of this potential morass by returning to an old standard:  WE BLAME BUSH!!  That's right.  The excuse they are currently floating to their friends in the establishment media to explain the decision not to prosecute CAIR officials and the other Islamic leaders implicated in the Holy Land Foundation case (all of whom had been named unindicted co-conspirators) is that the Bush administration chose not to prosecute them in 2004 and they were just reaffirming what John Ashcroft had decided way back when.

DOJ Source: Gov't Muslim 'Outreach' Jeopardized Active Terror Investigations.  On the heels of last week's article by Patrick Poole, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has sent a letter to Eric Holder this morning [4/15/2011] demanding answers as to why the Department of Justice decided not to prosecute CAIR, its co-founder Omar Ahmad, and others regarding the Holy Land Foundation case.

Why Did DOJ Drop Muslim Brotherhood Prosecutions?  Muslim Brotherhood front groups  — like CAIR, ISNA, NAIT and others — will now have a new reason to hate Peter King.  Today, the House Homeland Security Committee chairman is demanding to know why Eric Holder's Justice Department decided not to go after the numerous unindicted coconspirators named in the largest terrorist financing trial in American history, US v Holy Land Foundation.

U.S. government has no strategy to deal with Muslim Brotherhood.  The federal government has no strategy to counter the Muslim Brotherhood at home or abroad, according to the chairwoman of the House panel that oversees counterintelligence and terrorism.  "The federal government does not have a comprehensive or consistent strategy for dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated groups in America," Rep. Sue Wilkins Myrick said during a hearing Wednesday [4/13/2011].  "Nor does it have a strategy for dealing with the Brotherhood in Egypt or the greater Middle East."

The Muslim Brotherhood is by no means moderate.  Coverage of the recent parliamentary elections in Egypt has largely centered on the fact that the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) rigged the election.  Many have assumed, amid the descriptions of ballot stuffing, exaggerated voter turnout records, and bullying, that the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated candidates who lost are the real force behind democracy in Egypt.  The assumption is not only incorrect, but also dangerous, as the Brotherhood's actual goals are directly opposed to democracy.

The Muslim Brotherhood's History & Their Arrival in America.  [Scroll down]  The Brotherhood used violence against the British troops and their families.  They also fought against the system in Egypt which was not adhering to Islamic Law, targeting judges and others in the government.  The Egyptian government sought to identify, capture, and/or kill members of the Brotherhood.  In 1948, the Muslim Brotherhood killed the Prime Minister of Egypt, and in 1949, the Egyptian security service gunned down MB founder Hassan al Banna on the streets of Cairo.  This is not surprising, since violence is inherent to the MB's structure.  The "Special Section" is an integral part of the Muslim Brotherhood and conducts "special work" — "military work" or violence and warfare.

Hamas-associated CAIR applauded by White House.  White House officials have applauded advocacy efforts by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, even though top FBI managers refuse to meet its leaders, the council has been judged by courts to have been associated with the Islamic terror group Hamas, and several of its employees and members have been jailed or expelled for jihadi-related terrorist offenses since 2001.  CAIR was publicly applauded at a Mar. 10 White House event by Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor and assistant to the president...

The Muslim Brotherhood in America: Understanding the Threat.  The declaration of a global jihad from Iran in 1979 is over 30 years in our rear view mirror.  The national security apparatus of the United States has spent hundreds of billions of dollars to "make America safer," yet we still have not defined our enemy — or even tried.  There is no place in the national security structure which has objectively evaluated the threat doctrine of our enemy, and then created a strategic plan for victory for the United States — per U.S. warfighting doctrine.  This lack of strategic understanding of the nature of the threat we face is not only costing us lives on the battlefield in wars with no realistically stated objectives, but so long as we drift aimlessly, we cannot win and we allow the enemy to move our boat as he sees fit.  That is the enemy's strategy.  And he is executing with great success.

King Hearings Shine Light on Muslim Evasion of Responsibility.  Despite an all-out propaganda offensive by the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its useful idiots in the mainstream media, Rep. Peter King (R.-N.Y.) went ahead last week with his hearings on the radicalization of Muslims in the U.S.  King had allowed himself to be cowed by his opponents, striking several useful witnesses he had originally announced he was going to call after complaints from CAIR and other Islamic supremacist pressure groups, but his hearings went wonderfully well anyway — if only in exposing the mendacity and absolute unwillingness of Muslims in America to confront Islamic jihad activity in their midst.

Peter King Hearings Highlight the Problem of CAIR in the Muslim Community.  It's now painfully clear why the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was so forcefully opposed to the House Homeland Security Committee's hearings on homegrown radicalization in the Muslim-American community.  According to many speakers at the hearing, one of the major obstacles to solving the problem of homegrown Islamic radicalization appears to be Muslim-American advocacy groups like CAIR.

The OIC and the Caliphate.  The Organization of the Islamic Conference is the closest thing in the modern world to a caliphate.  It is composed of 57 members (56 sovereign states and the Palestinian Authority), joining voices and political heft to pursue the unitary interests of the ummah, the world's 1.4 billion Muslims.  Not surprisingly, the OIC works cooperatively with the Muslim Brotherhood, the world's most extensive and important Islamist organization, and one that sees itself as the vanguard of a vast, grass-roots movement — what the Brotherhood itself calls a "civilizational" movement.

The Global Caliphate and the Universal Delusion.  What is noteworthy about the beef against [Glenn] Beck is the rock-hard certitude with which his critics, Right and Left, dismiss the caliphate concept as though it were a mythological beast, not a historical system of Islamic governance still revered and yearned for by most Muslims.  Speaking of Tahrir Square, a 2007 University of Maryland/WorldOpinon poll indicated that 74 percent of Egyptians favor "strict Shariah," while 67 percent favor a "caliphate" uniting all of Islam.  But woe to anyone who takes notice.

Mainstreaming Radical Islam.  Hard-line Islamists seek to destroy us outright and supplant our government with a global Islamic State.  Exhibit A, of course, is the "Muslim Brotherhood" — a worldwide Islamofascist organization heartily embraced in recent weeks by the mainstream media and the larger "progressive" movement.  The Brotherhood, in its own words, seeks to "destroy" our "Western civilization from within... so that it is eliminated and God's religion (Islam) is made victorious over all other religions."

Krauthammer Tells Inconvenient Truth About Egypt and Muslim Brotherhood Media are Ignoring.  Most of the media were predictably jubilant and giddy on Friday when it was announced that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was stepping down.  Acting as the voice of reason was syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer who on PBS's "Inside Washington" spoke some inconvenient truths about the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt's similarities to pre-Islamic Revolution Iran that America's press have been dishonestly downplaying for weeks.

The Jimmy Carter Chronicles.  For those of you not entirely certain about where to stand on a complex, dynamic situation in Egypt, fear no more:  Jimmy Carter has waded in to add both clarity and certainty.  "I think that the Muslim Brotherhood is not anything to be afraid of," Carter told a wide-eyed, admiring university audience in Austin, Texas.  The man who presided over the replacement of the Shah with the world's worst theocratic-terror state confidently predicted that the Muslim Brotherhood "will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for freedom and democracy."

Professional Islamists.  The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, or al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun, is more than a radical network, comparable to al Qaeda; more than an ideological phenomenon, like the followers of Khomeini in the 1979 Iranian Revolution; and more than a political insurgency, similar to Pakistani jihadism.  It is an Egyptian Islamist subculture of great depth and influence.

Fear the Muslim Brotherhood.  One might wonder how an organization can be thought to have renounced violence when it has inspired more jihadists than any other, and when its Palestinian branch, the Islamic Resistance Movement, is probably more familiar to you by the name Hamas — a terrorist organization committed by charter to the violent destruction of Israel.  Indeed, in recent years, the Brotherhood (a.k.a., the Ikhwan) has enthusiastically praised jihad and even applauded — albeit in more muted tones — Osama bin Laden.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Penetration of the Obama Administration.  The first thing we need to realize is that the Muslim Brotherhood operates in the United States under a variety of names and organizational umbrellas.  Technically, there is no "Muslim Brotherhood" in the United States.  But the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others are — according to a document captured in a raid and released by law enforcement in 2007 during the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding trial) — Brotherhood-linked organizations.

Obama welcomes the Muslim Brotherhood.  [Scroll down]  The New York Times adds that White House staff members have "made clear that they did not rule out engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood as part of an orderly process" of transition to a new government after the departure of Mubarak.  The Times helpfully explains that the Muslim Brotherhood "renounced violence years ago."  Funny that the Brotherood's Hamas branch (i.e., "one of the the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine") hasn't gotten the word.

Obama's Brotherhood Moment.  Barack Obama has endorsed a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new, post-Mubarak government for Egypt.  This should come as no surprise.  Obama has behaved consistently all along, from his refusal to back the protesters in Iran, who were demonstrating against an Islamic Republic, to his backing of these protesters in Egypt, to whom he has just given a green light to establish a government that, given numerous historical precedents, will likely be the precursor to an Islamic Republic.

Obama Stands by Muslim Brotherhood Endorsement.  For the first time, a U.S. government supports granting a government role to an extremist Islamic organization:  the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  On Monday [1/31/2011], White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Egypt's new government will have to include a "whole host of important non-secular actors."  Most prominent among these is clearly the Muslim Brotherhood — which has made Islamic world domination one of its ultimate goals.

Hamas Is the Muslim Brotherhood.  Hamas's overt intervention in Egypt is an alarming development, although a predictable one.  It is worth pointing out that Hamas is not merely colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is the Muslim Brotherhood.

Who Says Islam Is Totalitarian Doctrine?  Well, Geert Wilders does, of course.  As the editors point out in Monday's superb National Review Online editorial, the Dutch parliamentarian has even had the temerity to compare Islam with Nazism.  Strong stuff indeed, and for speaking it, Wilders has earned the disdain not just of the usual Muslim Brotherhood satellite organizations but even of many on the political right.

Unindicted Co-conspirators.  Much has been made of an appeals-court decision to expunge references to several U.S. Muslim groups from a list of unindicted co-conspirators in a terrorism-financing case.  Too much, in fact.  It was never about the list.  It was about what evidence unmistakably tells us:  The Muslim Brotherhood and its American satellites are working to undermine the United States from within and to destroy Israel by any possible means, including terrorism.

The Muslim Brotherhood:  Islam's Global Challenge to the West.  With branches in seventy countries and linked to major Islamic organizations, the MB has an extensive and well-financed network of educational, social, and cultural institutions which promote a strategic MB plan for Islamic dominance — not through violence, but integration, becoming part of the national social and political life, and the application of Shariah law.  These connections give it access to political power and explain why it and the organizations it supports are courted by governments and NGOs.

Islamist Infiltration.  The Muslim Brotherhood is leading the way for radical Muslims to infiltrate American society and government. Their goal is simple:  control the United States and impose Shariah law. ... [This is] the Brotherhood's five-phase plan for dominating America:
 ·  Phase I:  Establish an elite Muslim Leadership and raise Islamicist consciousness in the community;
 ·  Phase II:  Create Islamic institutions that the leadership can control and form autonomous Muslim enclaves;
 ·  Phase III:  Infiltrate America's political and social institutions forming a shadow state; escalate conversions; manipulate mass media to remove language offensive to Islam;
 ·  Phase IV:  Open hostile public confrontation over U.S. policies, riot, make militant demands for special rights and accommodations;
 ·  Phase V:  Wage final conflict and overthrow (jihad).
According to Sperry and Gaubatz, the consensus among counterterrorism officials is that the North American Brotherhood is already in Phase III.

CAIR:  We Have a Problem.  CAIR uses intimidation, blackmail, extortion, and any method a person can imagine to target individuals who oppose or attempt to bring forth their acts of criminal and/or unethical behavior.  People should think of the Muslim Brotherhood not simply as a mob of thugs, but as a mob of thugs who provide support to Islamic based terrorist groups who have murdered and continue to murder our troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, and committed the acts against our country on 11 Sept. 2001.

Muslim Brotherly Hate:  All of the problems that the world has experienced with regard to Islamic terrorists can be traced to what one man, Hassan Al-Banna, started in 1928, when he founded the secret society of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).  The goal of the Brotherhood was to expel the West from the Middle East, and by doing so, reunite the Islamic world under one ruler.

The Muslim Brotherhood Inside the Conservative Movement.  Our country finds itself at a troubling crossroads.  We confront challenges from forces that are opposed to its very existence as the nation our founders created.  These forces are secular and religious and are poised to attack the foundations of our nation both at home and abroad.  In facing them conservatives have a special responsibility as a patriotic vanguard dedicated to the principles that have made America what it is, and who are willing to confront the enemies that seek to destroy her.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Penetration of the Obama Administration.  The first thing we need to realize is that the Muslim Brotherhood operates in the United States under a variety of names and organizational umbrellas.  Technically, there is no "Muslim Brotherhood" in the United States.  But the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others are — according to a document captured in a raid and released by law enforcement in 2007 during the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding trial) — Brotherhood-linked organizations.

Obama Stands by Muslim Brotherhood Endorsement.  For the first time, a U.S. government supports granting a government role to an extremist Islamic organization:  the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  On Monday [1/31/2011], White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Egypt's new government will have to include a "whole host of important non-secular actors."  Most prominent among these is clearly the Muslim Brotherhood — which has made Islamic world domination one of its ultimate goals.

CAIR Says Poster Warning Against Helping FBI is Misinterpreted.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations said it will remove a poster from the group's website promoting an upcoming conference that encourages people not to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Don't Talk To The FBI.  Fox News reports the Council on American-Islamic Relations is in hot water for a poster that spokesman Ibrahim Hooper says is "subject to misinterpretation," so they took it down out of "extreme caution."  The poster in question says "Don't Talk to the FBI," and encourages the viewer to "Build a Wall of Resistance."  The FBI is represented by a sinister black silhouette that looks like a cross between The Shadow and one of the characters from the "Spy vs. Spy" cartoon.  That doesn't sound difficult to interpret correctly.

CAIR Urges Muslims to 'Resist' FBI Terror Probes.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is still treated as a mainstream civil-liberties group by much of the media.  Indeed, last summer, as the controversy over the Ground Zero mosque heated up, representatives of the group were regularly trotted out as the moderate and reasonable representatives of a supposedly aggrieved community.  But recent activities by some of its chapters around the country are making clear that its main agenda remains rooted in its origins as a political front for an illegal group whose purpose was to raise funds for the Hamas terrorist organization.

CAIR goes after conservative blogger.  The Council on American Islamic Relations is once again using the American legal system to go after one of its critics.  The Muslim advocacy group is suing conservative blogger and outspoken CAIR opponent Debbie Schlussel in federal court, alleging trademark infringement for incorporating groups with similar names.  U.S. District Court Judge Avern Cohn will hear arguments in Detroit, Michigan Monday to determine whether CAIR will be granted a temporary restraining order against Schlussel that will prevent her from using the names she incorporated.

Are Muslims Being Victimized In America Today?  "Attacks on the American Muslim community and on Islam rose to an unprecedented level in 2010."  So claimed Nihad Awad, national executive director of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in an end-of-the-year fund-raising appeal. ... But is it true?  One might get the impression from all this that Muslims were huddled in their homes, cowering in the darkness as roving bands of Islamophobes marauded outside, throttling any hapless Believers who dared to stray outside.

Muslim family claims bias at pool owned by county.  The Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed two complaints Wednesday [12/29/2010] in Cook County Circuit Court claiming employees at a public pool discriminated against a Muslim family from Lyons based on their attire.

Radical Islam to Be Investigated: CAIR Cries Foul.  Given the string of terrorist plots in the past few years that can be directly linked to radical Islam, it's reasonable for the U.S. Congress to devote some time to studying what's been going on.  But, predictably, the group the mainstream media treat as the mouthpiece of American Muslims is screaming bloody murder about the prospect of such hearings.  In fact, Ibrahim Hooper, the spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said such hearings will be an "anti-Muslim witch hunt."

More states enter debate on sharia law.  Muneer Awad's opponents label him "a foreigner" trying to change Oklahoma's laws.  Awad, 27, a recent University of Georgia law school graduate born in Michigan, says he's standing up for the U.S. Constitution.  "I'm trying to defend the First Amendment," says Awad, director of Oklahoma's chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Multiculturalism Hits The Wall.  Multiculturalism has effectively controlled American security policy as regards terrorism from the very beginning.  Islam, we were assured by no less a figure than George W. Bush, was "a religion of peace."  Critical resources were invested in curtailing any "backlash" against American Muslims by the evil-minded white, Christian majority. Organizations of dubious provenance, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) were appointed official representatives of American Muslims.  What did these attempts to bend over backward under the prompting of an abstract academic intellectual construct accomplish?

Cut Ties To Terror.  U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis has ruled there is "ample evidence" to support the Justice Department's decision to blacklist the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror trial.  He refused requests to strike their names from the list.  At the trial, which ended in guilty verdicts on all 108 counts, FBI agents testified that ISNA, NAIT and CAIR are fronts for the federally designated terrorist group Hamas, which has murdered countless Israelis and at least 17 Americans.

Oklahoma:  When Sharia comes sweeping down the plains.  During the recent mid-term election, voters across the country voiced their will on more than just which politicians or political party they wanted to see in power for the next term.  Voters in Oklahoma voted on whether or not Sharia, Islamic law, should or should not be used or considered within the state's court system.  Seventy percent — that's right, seven out of ten Oklahoma voters — said no to Sharia and international law, and within days Oklahoma's chapter of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, filed a lawsuit against the Oklahoma State Election Board.

CAIR vs. the FBI.  On October 28, 2009, the FBI tried to arrest Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah in Dearborn.  A shoot-out ensued killing a police dog and Abdullah, and immediately the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups denounced the FBI and called for an independent investigation.  Three reviews have now cleared the four FBI agents involved, but CAIR is still trying to portray the incident as the murder of an innocent man.

How the West is Being Lost.  Formed in Egypt during the 1920s, the Muslim Brotherhood is an extremist Islamic group.  Among its most revered thinkers is the martyr Sayyid Qutb who called for worldwide rejection of Western values before his 1966 execution.  Ever since, his writings have radicalized Islamic thought, including that of al-Qaeda's Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri.  A 2007 criminal investigation into organizers of a charitable Islamic organization's terrorist funding links yielded evidence of the Brotherhood's strategy for implementing Sharia law in the US through gradual erosion of the Constitution.

Federal Court Ruling: CAIR Must Answer to Fraud Charges.  A federal judge in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia has denied a motion to dismiss complaints by five former clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  CAIR is a Muslim organization previously named as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group by the FBI and U.S. Attorney's Office in the federal criminal trial and conviction of a terrorist funding cell organized around one of the largest Muslim charities, the Holy Land Foundation, which raised funds for violent jihad on behalf of Hamas.

Director Mueller, Say No to CAIR.  At this point, the question about CAIR should be:  Why does anyone care?  Care about anything CAIR officials say, that is.

Another protected minority that can't be fired?
State police sued over Muslim chaplain's dismissal.  The Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a discrimination lawsuit Monday [8/30/2010] against the Illinois State Police on behalf of Kifah Mustapha.  State police hired Imam Kifah as its first and only Muslim chaplain.

Divine Divestment.  Chicago-area United Methodists last month voted to divest from companies doing business with Israel, including Caterpillar and General Electric.  A few weeks later, in July, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), whose annual convention was outside Chicago, appreciatively gave the Northern Illinois Conference of United Methodism its Interfaith Unity Award.

CAIR's Pro-Terror Red Flags.  Since the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR was founded in June 1994, while a handful of representatives from the group have been forthright in vocalizing their support for global terrorist organizations, the majority of the group's hierarchy has worked hard to mask this support.  One such CAIR operative, Affad Shaikh, has made and continues to make this duplicitous façade a large part of his life, blurring the lines of terror support by spouting anti-Western rhetoric and propagating terror-related fanatics.

No Free Speech about Leaving Islam?  Advertising on taxpayer-funded transit has become the latest free speech battleground — and the cause of freedom has just won a significant victory.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations tried to defeat free speech in Miami, with the lapdog media on its side, and was just handed a major defeat.

Connect the Dots on CAIR's Foreign Funding and Lobbying.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), claims to be "America's largest Islamic civil liberties group."  But that's a myth.  As [reported] on last fall, only 1% of CAIR's latest reported revenues actually came from Muslim American members.  Meanwhile foreign donors have given CAIR over $6,000,000 million [sic] in cash and loans, and over $50,000,000 in pledges.

CAIR Attacks the Foreign Policy Research Institute.  This episode raises unsettling questions:  What is CAIR doing with an "informant" inside Mason Crest Publishers?  How many other publishing houses has it penetrated?  And which other cultural institutions have staff more loyal to CAIR than to their employers?

Dallas Islamic leader, former CAIR board member deported.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is likely to find itself the target of more criticism after a Dallas immigration judge ordered one of their former board members deported due to terror connections.

CAIR's Hamas Co-Conspirator Associates.  Omar Ahmad's picture and bio have been removed from CAIR's national website, but his likeness has turned up on another CAIR site, a local chapter's one in California.  Given CAIR's publicly known history linking the group to Hamas and given the fallout from the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trials, one would think that CAIR would wish to shed its troubling past.  With regards to Ahmad and some others, though, it seems the group has embraced it, proving that CAIR is willing to either sink or swim with its radicals.

Modesty in Islam Just a Cover-up for CAIR agenda.  A Muslim woman applied for a job at Hollister, a division of Abercrombie and Fitch, in San Mateo, California back in October.  She wore hijab until a division manager came in, and decided she didn't fit the A&F image, so he fired her after she refused to take off the head scarf while on the job. ... Murder, deceit, and sexual exploitation of women are allowable under Islam.  Not exactly a modest and peaceful system of belief for some.  CAIR really doesn't CARE about the woman in the lawsuit.  It cares about spreading Islam.

Clueless About CAIR and ISNA.  The issue of terrorism is broadcast every day over the airwaves.  Yet, so many of our government officials are clueless about it.  How else would a leader from the Islamic Society of North America and the Council on American-Islamic Relations — two groups singled out by the Justice Department for their involvement in the financing of Hamas — be invited to a sitting Governor's State of the State Address?

CAIR:  Fort Hood Co-Conspirator.  Suddenly CAIR, an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, is acting like a good citizen.  Suddenly it's concerned about young Muslim-American men going on jihad.  Suddenly it's concerned about "certain" passages of the Quran inspiring jihadists.  It's all too little, too late.  Thanks to CAIR, 42 brave American soldiers were gunned down by an Islamic nut in Texas.  That's right, thanks to CAIR.

CAIR's Fort Hood Idol:  Following the November massacre that took place at Fort Hood, Texas and the failed terrorist plane attack by the so-called 'underpants' bomber, all eyes have been focused on Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born al-Qaeda leader who had been in contact with the perpetrators of both acts.

Muslim Mafia:  Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America.  Through painstaking and nuanced research of internal memos and documents, the authors establish that CAIR is the ideological cousin of the notorious Muslim Brotherhood and their leadership is inextricably tied to the promulgation of an explosively violent "jihadist" agenda.  Utilizing double-speak and a wide variety of cleverly devised subterfuges, CAIR manages to present itself as a law abiding, pro-American organization; however, the authors expose their unbridled mendacity in its most egregious form.

Friend of the Brotherhood?  [Scroll down]  More Americans are taking note of the accumulating series of statements and actions by the president that display favoritism, or worse, toward Muslims.  That would be troubling enough; after all, no chief executive is supposed to support one subset of us over others.  Growing numbers of our countrymen may be on to something else about the Obama presidency, however, that is even more alarming:  In instance after instance, Mr. Obama seemingly has bent over backward to accommodate not just Muslim-Americans, but a deeply problematic organization — the Muslim Brotherhood (or Ikhwan) — that purports to represent their interests here.

CAIR Finally Under Investigation.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a longtime partner of the FBI in its efforts to reach out to American Muslims, now appears to be under criminal investigation by that same FBI.  It's a refreshing breakthrough of sanity in the FBI's dealing with the domestic terror threat — and it came to light just as CAIR was poised to win yet another victory in its ongoing campaign of harassment and intimidation against anyone who dares draw attention to jihadist activity in the United States.

ISNA:  Attitude, Not Apologies for Ft. Hood Murders.  It seems strange that in today's New York Times article on the Ft. Hood shooter, Army Major Nidal Hasan, Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) president Ingrid Mattson stated, "I don't understand why the Muslim-American community has to take responsibility for him.  The Army has had at least as much time and opportunity to form and shape this person as the Muslim community."

Did someone mention Fort Hood?

Somebody at Fort Hood Should be Walking the Plank.  ISNA is the Muslim Brotherhood's umbrella entity for Islamist organizations in the United States.  It was established in 1981 to enable Muslims in North America "to adopt Islam as a complete way of life" — i.e., to further the Brotherhood's strategy of establishing enclaves in the West that are governed by sharia.

Jihad returns to Fort Hood.  Andy McCarthy, in a disturbing report, tells us that, according to his sources, the Defense Department has brought a top official of the Islamic Society of America (ISNA) to Fort Hood to lecture our troops about Islam before they deploy to Afghanistan.  The ISNA official, Louay Safi, has also served as research director at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).

Rep. Sue Myrick Takes a Stand on Obama, Fort Hood and CAIR.  The FBI has publicly stated CAIR has ties to HAMAS, a designated terrorist organization.  This was clearly stated in a letter the FBI sent to Sen. Jon Kyl on April 28, 2009.

CAIR Exposed.  Naturally and fully expected, CAIR is on the defensive.  Instead of addressing the numerous factual pieces of intelligence showing their support of the Islamic terrorist ideology, they do exactly as their "internal documents" indicate.  They begin intimidation, extortion, blackmail, and other related threats to silence their critics.

GOP lawmakers submit request to probe CAIR.  In [a] letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, the House members ask the Justice Department to reveal to Congress members why CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror finance case in U.S. history.

Republicans Call for CAIR Investigations.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. non-profit Muslim activist group associated with Islamist terrorist groups such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, is reeling under new allegations of highly suspect activity.

State Department's love affair with Islamists.  With the United States battling Islamist extremists, making America's case to Muslims around the world has never been more of a priority for policymakers.  Unfortunately, the State Department continues to take a counterproductive approach:  serving as a veritable infomercial promoting Islamist organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) while giving the back of the hand to the very anti-jihadist Muslims that Washington should be cultivating.

CAIR's Threat to National Security:  CAIR leader Hussam Ayloush is on a crusade against the FBI; he's upset by how the government agency fights terrorism.  What he's not upset by are the terrorists who threaten America and America's allies.  It's a pattern by Mr. Ayloush that could easily lead one to believe he is a threat himself.

The ISNA Conference.  Last year I attended the ISNA Conference in Ohio. There were an estimated 30,000 plus Muslims who attended the conference ... There were hundreds of vendors, and since the conference was being held only a couple of months before the 2008 Presidential Election, there was an enormous outpouring of support for Barack Obama.  Non profit organizations are not supposed to favor any certain political candidate, of course.  In 2008 ISNA had several booths with anti-American slogans on shirts, along with pro-Hamas, pro-Palestinian, and anti-Israel garments.  In addition Barack Hussein Obama material was in abundance.

A Close Look at Obama's New Islamic Partners.  In response to [Jennifer] Rubin's report, Thomas Jocelyn of the Weekly Standard observed that ISNA's name has come up in a current German terror finance investigation.  It is believed that the Islamic group had donated $100,000 to the Third World Relief Agency at the very same time that TWRA was funding the terror network behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

CAIR's Congressional Stooges.  Seven House Democrats have written Attorney General Eric Holder invoking a list of grievances from radical Islamist groups and asking that Holder meet with representatives from those groups to hear their concerns.  The grievances include the use of convicted felons as informants in mosques, alleged religious profiling of Somali Muslims in Minnesota and elsewhere and allegations that the FBI is working with foreign governments to question American citizens who are terror suspects.

Some influential Muslim groups question FBI's actions.  As they sipped tea and nibbled on dates, more than 100 men and women listened to a litany of speakers sounding the same message:  The FBI is not your friend.  "We're here today to say our mosques are off limits," Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations for Greater Los Angeles, told the crowd last month at an Anaheim mosque.

FBI and American Muslims at odds.  Law enforcement efforts to root out home-grown terrorists are jeopardized by deteriorating relations between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Muslim and Arab-American communities.  The situation began last fall when the FBI quietly withdrew formal relations with all local chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), one of the largest Muslim American civil rights organizations.  The FBI cited "a number of distinct narrow issues" that it has refused to make public.

Ex-CAIR Chairman:  FBI Should Shut Down the Organization.  In January, Fox News reported that the FBI had "severed its ties" with all CAIR chapters.  Now, Parvez Ahmed, the former national chairman of CAIR's board of directors, has come out with his own thoughts on punishment for the group.  Ahmed served as CAIR's national chairman from May 2005 until his resignation in June 2008.  His departure was not without controversy and his parting words were not complimentary.

House Leaders Wary of CAIR After FBI Shuns Islamic Advocacy Group.  A leading member of the House of Representatives is asking the FBI to explain why it did not notify Congress that it had cut ties with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, as revealed by last week.  And several lawmakers are calling on their colleagues to "think twice" before meeting with the Islamic advocacy group, which the FBI considers a front for Islamic radicals.

Former Hamas Fundraiser to Speak at CAIR Banquet.  Before the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) was closed by the U.S. government as a designated global terrorist fundraising entity just weeks after the 9/11 attacks, Monzer Taleb (aka Munzir Taleb, Monzer Talib, et al.) was part of the infamous Al-Sakhra band, which toured the U.S. raising money for the HLF and the terrorist group Hamas.  Taleb was so active in his fundraising pursuits that he was personally named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF terrorism finance trial, which concluded this past November with guilty verdicts on all 108 counts for the defendants.

CAIR's Credibility Takes a Hit from Holy Land Terror Trial.  The public image of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), image has taken a huge blow as a result of new revelations that the FBI has severed ties with the group.  The Investigative Project on Terrorism, a research organization headed by Steven Emerson, has published on its web site a letter sent in October from James E. Finch, special agent in charge of the bureau's Oklahoma operations, to local Muslims stating that the FBI would not take part in a local outreach conference because of CAIR's participation.  An FBI official in Washington told Fox News last month that the agency has directed FBI field offices across the country to cut ties with local affiliates of CAIR.

E-mails from an Enemy.  Given my line of work, from time to time, I get angry e-mails from people affiliated with hate and/or terror-related groups — groups that I have worked hard to expose and hopefully, one day, help to shut down.  Recently, I was sent a handful of e-mails from the President of the campus chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS on Campus) at John Jay College in New York City.  The specifics contained within them were a valuable confirmation of things previously suspected to be true.

ACLU Sticks Up for Group That Funds Terrorism.  Recently the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) produced a video complaining about how Muslim charitable groups have been negatively affected by the Bush administration's crackdown on terrorist charities.  The ACLU chose leaders and patrons of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) to make its point.  It was a poor choice, as ICNA itself has been tied to terrorist financing.

'Why Islam':  Reaching Out and Preaching Hate.  Since its creation, Why Islam (WI), a Muslim proselytizing project of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), has advocated a radical strain of Islam that stresses both hatred and violence.  Today is no different.  The group continues to verbally attack non-Muslims.  And now the group is featuring a poll on its website asking if al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is innocent.  The results of the poll are very disturbing.

CAIR Sex, Drugs and Profanity.  CAIR-California's Affad Shaikh is a rebel Islamist.  While he performs the normal extremist activities, like obsess over Israel, rail against American troops, and defend militant Islamic groups overseas, he also does many things that could be considered unbecoming of a CAIR leader, at least by CAIR's disjointed standards of conduct.  Yet the group still keeps him on board.

The Hate Bus.  CAIR and ICNA, two groups with documented ties to extremist groups overseas, have happened upon a new ploy to bring "non-believers" to Islam.  The groups are using public transportation — subways and buses — to advertise their message.  However, that message is one that is highly offensive and demeaning to those of other faiths, as it promotes Islam as a religion of superiority and spreads false information about revered Christian and Jewish figures.

The Last Days of CAIR.  Four of [David Yerushalmi's] clients, who were all once clients of CAIR, have filed a federal civil complaint alleging criminal fraud and racketeering against CAIR.  The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, arises out of what we can call the Morris Days affair.

CAIR Files FEC Complaint over Obsession.  Despite the fact that the film Obsession contains no political content and was made well before the 2008 election cycle began, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, those paragons of Islamic moderation and honesty, would now have you believe that the national distribution of the DVD was an Israeli plot to elect John McCain.  And they've filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission alleging just that.

CAIRing for Guantanamo.  The Guantanamo Bay detention camp holds many of the world's most dangerous terrorists — individuals whose goal is to destroy America.  Yet, there are some that claim the facility represents a symbol of repression against the innocent.  One group in particular, CAIR or the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has been vocal in its opposition to Guantanamo.

CAIR Assassination Plot?  Last month, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents stationed at the U.S./Mexico border held the Civil Rights Coordinator of CAIR-California, Affad Shaikh, and others whom he was with for questioning.  The agents suspected that the group had the intention of coming to the United States to assassinate President Bush.  The following will provide a detailed context for why the CBP would believe such a thing and will make the case as to why the U.S. government should not drop the issue.

CAIR vs. Human Rights:  Suspicions persist about [The Council on American Islamic Relations], due not only to the terror convictions of several of its former officials and the questionable statements of some of its spokesmen, but because it always seems to be on the opposing side of anti-terror efforts, as well as of any honest attempt to examine and reform the elements of Islam that jihadists are using to justify violence today.

CAIR blames Justice for its troubles.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) says it is suffering from a decline in membership and fundraising and blames the Justice Department for listing it as an unindicted co-conspirator in a case involving a charity accused of terrorist ties.

CAIR Revealed:  For the first time, evidence in a major federal terror case puts CAIR's current executive director — Nihad Awad — at a Philadelphia meeting of alleged Hamas leaders that was secretly recorded by the FBI.  After the Associated Press last week reported the bombshell, CAIR denied claims of ties to Hamas.  "That's one of those urban legends about CAIR," said Parvez Ahmed, CAIR's chairman.  "It's fed by the right-wing, pro-Israeli blogosphere."  In fact, the evidence was revealed by an FBI agent who testified at the terror-financing trial under way in Dallas.

What idiots!
Controversial Muslim group gets VIP airport security tour.  The Department of Homeland Security took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.

Chicago's Hamas Youth:  During the 1990s, the Hamas infrastructure within the United States was complete.  It consisted of a propagation outlet, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP); a financing wing, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF); a command center, the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR); and a defense mechanism, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  Today, only the latter exists, along with a remnant of the IAP, the Mosque Foundation.  Both have a presence in the Chicago area, where group and mosque are working hard to indoctrinate young Muslims into radical Islam.

CAIR Extremist to Speak on Extremism.  On Tuesday, April 8, 2008, the head of the Michigan office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Dawud Walid, will be giving a speech about extremism and terrorism, at Grand Valley State University, in Allendale, Michigan, hosted by the Muslim Students Association.  But how can such topics be discussed, when the speaker is a known extremist, and the organization he represents has been involved in terrorism?

No 'Islamophobia,' please.  As delegates to the Republican National Convention gear up for speeches by Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin, an Islamic civil liberties group is urging the GOP candidates to stay away from Muslim-bashing and extend an olive branch to members of the faith.  "We urge Senator McCain and Governor Palin to offer inclusive speeches at this week's Republican convention and ask that they both avoid divisive Islamophobic rhetoric," said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.

CAIR Pushes Phony Charges of Anti-Muslim Hysteria, Hate Crimes.  In a series of thorough and carefully documented articles, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has detailed the sinister side of the self-proclaimed Muslim civil rights group CAIR.  The tenth and final installment takes a look at CAIR's persistent — and often contrived — charges of "hate crimes" perpetrated against Muslims and supposed "anti-Muslim hysteria" rampant in this country.

A Trying Time for CAIR.  It has been a bad week for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  The group that has so successfully presented itself to law enforcement and media organizations as a Muslim civil rights group is seeing a radically different portrayal of its motives and goals coming to light in the Holy Land Foundation terror charity trial in Dallas.

Prosecutors say Texas charity hid its terrorist ties.  The Holy Land Foundation presented two faces to the world, federal prosecutors said Monday [9/17/2007] as final arguments began in what is widely seen as the most important terrorist financing case ever to go to trial in the United States.

Homeland Security Implications of the Holy Land Foundation Trial.  Although evidence brought forward in documents and testimony has explosive implications for US Homeland Security, the intelligence community, and every American citizen, relatively little media attention has been paid to it.

Motion For Retrial.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations is cheering a mistrial in a major terror case as a "stunning defeat" for the U.S. government.  But the celebration may be premature.

Coming up empty.  Years of federal investigation, months of sworn testimony, weeks of jury deliberation, and four days awaiting the release of a sealed verdict culminated in confusion and debacle Oct. 22.  The 12-member citizen panel charged with adjudicating the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history appeared to crumble under stacks of convoluted evidence.

CAIR Terror Ties Exposed, Again.  From the Hamas ties of its founders in 1994 to its solicitous stance toward accused terrorists today, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has demonstrated that its actual mission is far removed from the civil rights advocacy it claims to pursue.  Still standing as perhaps the clearest evidence of CAIR's insidious role, two key leaders of the group attended a 1993 meeting in Philadelphia called by Hamas members and supporters to devise a strategy for torpedoing the Oslo Accords aimed at Middle East peace.

Has CAIR Violated Its Non-Profit Tax Status?  United States Representative and co-founder of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus, Sue Myrick, is one of a growing number of lawmakers to speak out against CAIR.  As reported in World Net Daily, in December 2007, she stated, "Groups like CAIR have a proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned or deported from the United States."

CAIR officials getting taxpayer dollars for schools.  Patrick Poole has been looking at the taxpayer-funded charter schools run by CAIR officials in Columbus, Ohio and published his report today at Front Page Magazine.  There are many serious problems uncovered, including use of the schools for CAIR events, the political extremism, and possibly self-dealing.

CAIR Goes Back to School.  As children all over the country prepare for the annual American rite of the beginning of school, hundreds of school children and their parents from the Columbus, Ohio Somali refugee community may be getting far less than they bargained for, as well as Ohio taxpayers.

Telephoning the Enemy:  CAIR board members unapologetically have said that they intend to "educate" Americans to accept Sharia as our law!

CAIR's Congress.  With the Democratic victory in the midterm elections, one big winner was the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  The American Islamic pressure group now has a chance to advance its agenda in numerous ways, with energetic water-carrying by, among others, the Speaker of the House, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and the first Muslim member of Congress.

Muslims Silence Critics.  Violent reprisal has long been an occupational hazard of those who dare to question or investigate Islamic groups or criticize Islamic practices. … Much more common has been the practice of trying to intimidate critics into silence through legal threats.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has had great success with this over the years, although lately the tactic appears to be faltering.

Don't like it?  Clear off, mate.  Clearly, Aussies don't have a CAIR.  Federal Education Minister Brendan Nelson actually said that Muslims in Australia who don't want to accept local values should leave the country.

CAIR Backs Down from Anti-CAIR.  In a stunning setback, the Council on American-Islamic Relations' defamation suit against Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR has been dismissed with prejudice.

Why CAIR Dropped Its Lawsuit Against Andrew Whitehead.  Andrew Whitehead, a former serviceman with the U.S. Navy has a website named Anti-CAIR on which Whitehead accused CAIR of partially funding terrorist organizations.  CAIR routinely tries to intimidate the likes of Whitehead in the hope of stifling any criticisms and/or allegations made against it.

CAIR's Fuzzy Math:  We've been told for years that Islam is the fastest-growing religion in America, and that the size of the Muslim population here has swelled to 6 million to 7 million.  A new study pops that myth.

CAIR by the Numbers:  Since representatives from CAIR have identified their organization as "the Islamic NAACP", a comparison between CAIR and the NAACP might be helpful. … Even after adjusting for the population size differences between the two, CAIR's membership footprint amongst their constituency is still is only one-tenth that of the NAACP.

CAIR membership falls 90% since 9/11.  Membership in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has declined more than 90 percent since the 2001 terrorist attacks, according to tax documents obtained by The Washington Times.  The number of reported members spiraled down from more than 29,000 in 2000 to fewer than 1,700 in 2006.

Telephoning the Enemy:  By its own court filings, the Council on American-Islamic Relations conclusively established its multiple communications with persons suspected of connections with terrorists.

CAIR:  Islamists Fooling the Establishment.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), headquartered in Washington, is perhaps the best-known and most controversial Muslim organization in North America.  CAIR presents itself as an advocate for Muslims' civil rights and the spokesman for American Muslims.  "We are similar to a Muslim NAACP," says its communications director, Ibrahim Hooper.

CAIR's Hate Crimes Nonsense:  CAIR cites the July 9, 2004 case of apparent arson at a Muslim-owned grocery store in Everett, Washington.  But investigators quickly determined that Mirza Akram, the store's operator, staged the arson to avoid meeting his scheduled payments and to collect on an insurance policy.  Although Akram's antics were long ago exposed as a fraud, CAIR continues to list this case as an anti-Muslim hate crime.

Did someone mention Hate Crimes?

Cowed by CAIR:  DC talk station fires host.  Washington, D.C. talk radio station WMAL, 630 AM, has caved to pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group that has savaged journalists, critics of radical Islam, even the Fox TV show "24" but which just as steadfastly has refused to specifically condemn various Islamic terrorist organizations.

CAIR Fifth Columnists and Multiculturalists:  In the realm of terrorism, the threat to America is not just concerning dirty bombs and terror cells.  It's not just about planes flying into buildings or suicide vests.  No, the threat is a lot greater than that — a solid infrastructure finely cultivated into our society, paid for, at least in part, by Saudi royalty.  It was created not to promote the values of our nation, but, instead, to impose Islamic law.  A large part of that infrastructure is the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR.

CAIR's Medical School Grievance Theater:  When Iram Qureshi of Dublin, Ohio was dismissed from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine last month after having to repeat her first year and then failing two 'systems' in her second year after she stopped attending classes, she did what any normal American Muslim woman would seem to do these days — she called the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and sued.

ISNA, NAIT and other organizations
(Some disguised as charities)

Co-Conspirators of Hate.  The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and its sister org, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), are attempting to have their names taken off the U.S. government's list of "unindicted co-conspirators" for a Dallas Hamas fundraising trial that began almost one year ago.  They are claiming that, because of the designation, the government has done harm to their relationship with law enforcement and interfaith groups.

Front-gate:  It is now well-established in Washington that any scandal, no matter how seemingly innocuous, soon is given the suffix "-gate," establishing a lineal connection to the mother of all scandals, Watergate.  Well, let me be the first to suggest that a recent scandal in the Pentagon be known hereafter as "Front-gate" in recognition of the central role played in the drama by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization designated by the Justice Department as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan).

The Muslim Students Association and the Jihad Network:  As early as the 1980s, operatives from the Muslim Brotherhood, parent group for al Qaeda and Hamas, formulated a blueprint for a "jihadist process" that would ultimately sabotage the "miserable house" of the United States.  These Muslim Brotherhood operatives saw that the work of undermining the U.S. could be best accomplished by the use of front groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Students Association.  But while CAIR was designed to work in the legal-cultural realm, posturing as another of the minority rights groups functioning in the public square, the MSA's role was to be restricted to college campuses, where it would advance the cause of radical Islam and lead the effort to stigmatize Israel.

Bad CAIR Day.  The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) had a rough 24 hours earlier this week.  Given the organization's ties to the seditious Muslim Brotherhood and specifically its role in advancing the stealth jihad used to insinuate into this country the totalitarian program authoritative Islam calls "sharia," though, any bad CAIR day is a good day for America.

The Muslim Brotherhood in America.  The only people who can get away with openly lying, causing harm to our troops/country, and turn our country from a democracy/free market into a Socialist nation under many Sharia compliant aspects are elected politicians.  Islamic scholars realize even under Obama, they can't (to date) verbalize treason and sedition against America.  They do realize it is still accepted to call for sedition/treason, and murder of innocent people in written and video formats.  These formats of communicating hatred toward America are somehow believed to be covered under our U.S. Constitutions First Amendment.  Islamic leaders are taking advantage of our naiveness and regardless of what our law enforcement and politicians believe, America is under attack and inside the U.S. we are losing our country inch by inch.

Obama's Islamist Problem:  The question is why would Barak Obama's campaign — which has prevented Muslim women wearing headcoverings from being in the background of photographs with the candidate and which recently fired a Muslim-outreach coordinator who had ties to another unindicted HLF co-conspirator — allow itself to be put in such company?  Presumably, the response will be one heard from the Bush administration:  ISNA is a large, "mainstream" Muslim-American organization that is an appropriate vehicle for outreach to that community.

The Dems' 'soft' jihadist.  The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has been identified by the Department of Justice not only as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood — a global Islamist movement with the stated mission in America of "destroying Western civilization from within."  Worse yet, it has also been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the United States' largest alleged terrorism financing conspiracy.

The Muslim Students Association and the Jihad Network:  As revealed in documents seized by the FBI and entered as evidence in a Texas court, the Muslim Students Association is a legacy project of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Brotherhood is an organization formed by a Hitler-admiring Muslim named Hasan al-Bannain Egypt in 1928.  It was designed to function as the spearpoint of the Islamo-fascist movement and its crusade against the West.

My Encounter With the Enemy in Milwaukee.  [Scroll down] The Muslim Students Union at Irvine is an affiliate of the Muslim Students' Association and an open supporter of terrorist religious party Hamas, who wear Hamas armbands at campus events.  The MSU has hosted the radical cleric Imam Muhammad al-Asi, who told his UCI audience:  "We have a psychosis in the Jewish community that is unable to co-exist equally and brotherly with other human beings.  You can take a Jew out of the ghetto, but you cannot take the ghetto out of the Jew."

Don't go there, Mrs. Hughes.  As with the Bush Administration's outreach to Alamoudi and the AMC and its endorsement of al-Arian's campaign against secret evidence, Mrs. Hughes would make be making a first-order strategic error were she to embrace the Islamic Society of North America.  This is because the ISNA is a front for the promotion of Saudi Arabia's Wahhabi political, doctrinal and theological infrastructure in the United States and Canada.

Karen Hughes' big mistake.  Not only did Hughes publicly endorse the Islamic Society of North America with her mere presence, but this was the first major public address in her new role spearheading outreach to the Muslim world.  In the process, she undoubtedly sent a signal as to whom the administration does — and does not — support in the U.S. Muslim community.

Muslim "Charity" Charged With Terrorism:  The charges accuse Enaam M. Arnaout and the "charity" of lying under oath in a federal civil lawsuit pending against U.S. government officials.  At issue are the foundation's denials of providing "aid and support to people or organizations known to be engaged in violence, terrorist activities or military operations."

The Money Trail:  A U.S.-based Islamic charity received millions of dollars in State Department funds for charitable work in Africa — at the same time that its overseas affiliates were allegedly funneling large sums of money directly to Osama bin Laden, according to newly released government documents.  The new information about the Islamic American Relief Agency, and its parent organization in the Sudan, appears to represent the strongest evidence yet that, at least for several years in the late 1990s, U.S. taxpayer money may have been inadvertently used to finance the terrorist operations of Al Qaeda.

UK charity transferred cash to Hamas.  A major Islamic charity raising millions of dollars in Britain "to provide humanitarian aid to peoples of the Middle East" transferred money to Hamas and provided funds to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers, according to documents found in the Palestinian territories.

Red-Faced Saudis Crack Down on Pro-terrorist "Charities":  The Saudi government announced legal and regulatory measures to control "charity" funds, some of which is alleged to have found its way to terrorist outfits.

Federal agents raid Muslim charity in Southfield.  Agents with the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force executed search warrants at the headquarters for Life for Relief and Development, a Southfield-based charity that works in Arab and Muslim countries around the world.  The warrants were based on a criminal predicate, said William Kowalski, assistant special agent in charge for the Detroit office of the FBI.

Oprah's Islamist Nightmare:  Oprah Winfrey, the popular television talk show hostess, probably doesn't realize it, but she is being used by a radical Muslim organization.  Last month, she aired a tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., where she featured the daughter of a well known Islamist leader.  Now, the leader and his operation are spreading the word that Oprah has helped their group to hit the big time.

The Islamic Truth Group:  Established in 1999 "to increase Islamic knowledge so that Muslims become Allah's viceroys on earth," the Great Britain-based Islamic Truth Group (ITG) describes itself as "part of the Muslim Unification Council," a worldwide organization dedicated to re-unifying the Muslim ummah [people or nation] into one super state [Al-Khilafah, "the Caliphate"] that "will dominate world politics for all mankind, forever."  Such a Caliphate would be governed by strict Islamic law, or Sharia.  "English Law is not divine law like Shariah Law," says ITG.  "Don't follow it!"

ICNA's Islamist Southern Strategy.  One of the main Muslim Brotherhood organs in the United States is the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).  Like all Brotherhood groups, its goal is to spread Islam whilst destroying its place of dwelling from within.  One of the areas of the U.S. that ICNA is focused on is the South, particularly the Southeast.

Foundation President Indicted in Iran Probe.  The president of a non-profit organization that the U.S. government has long suspected of being a front for Iranian espionage and anti-American activities has been indicted on charges that he allegedly destroyed documents just one day after receiving a grand jury subpoena instructing him not to do so.  Farshid Jahedi, president of the Alavi Foundation, which is headquartered in Manhattan, will be arraigned on Friday [5/8/2009] on charges of obstruction of justice.
