America remains engaged in a war with radical Islam. Though President Obama and the rest of the unicorn brigade continue to pretend that Islam poses no risk to the United States, the majority of Americans understand that while the Obama administration may not be waging war on radical Islam, radical Islam is certainly waging war on us.
Making this battle more difficult, however, are guilty liberals who attempt to derail our national conversation about Islam in order to promote an absurd breed of tolerance that is not extended to any other religious or ethnic group.
Among these relentless defenders of Islam and its adherents is the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that has long been rumored to hold ties to Palestinian terrorist networks.
According to a flowchart begrudgingly released by the FBI via a Freedom of Information Act request, CAIR is connected to the terrorist group Hamas.
Laughably, Hamas recently came-out strong against Donald Trump’s proposed suspension of Muslim immigration to the U.S. Presumably, their terrorist operations would run a lot smoother if people just kept a “whatever” attitude about Muslim immigration.
The FBI chart shows CAIR operating under the umbrella of the terrorist organization. It details organizations that exist to provide support for the Palestinian terrorist group, which includes CAIR.
The released document also shows Nabil Sadoun’s connection to Hamas. Sadoun is a former CAIR national board of directors member and vice chairman.
Breitbart reveals what else has been learned from the FOIA request:
In 2007, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, a Hamas financing case that would result in the FBI ceasing its working relationship with CAIR. The HLF trial was the largest terror-financing case in American history. In 2008, during a retrial of the HLF case, an FBI Special Agent labeled CAIR as “a front group for Hamas” during her trial testimony. In 2010, a federal judge reiterated that his court had “ample evidence” that CAIR was involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.” CAIR, which relies upon millions of dollars in Saudi cash, was recently listed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a terrorist organization.
The group, which fashions itself as a civil rights voice for American Muslims, was founded by members of the Palestine Committee (PALCOM), an organization “established to support Hamas,” according to the chart. Nihad Awad, currently CAIR’s executive director, was previously an official at PALCOM.
The FBI declaration submitted in connection with removal proceedings for Nabil Sadoun (a former top CAIR official) said PALCOM members used coded language to discuss the “true nature” of their clandestine operations in support of Hamas. During a Philadelphia conference, which was being wiretapped by the FBI, they “referred to Hamas as ‘Samah’–Hamas spelled backwards–or simply as ‘the Movement,’” the FBI declaration said.
“It is clear that the true nature of the PALCOM meeting was to discuss the means to support Hamas’ goal to undermine the peace process (between Israel and the Palestinians) and to thwart law enforcement in the United States,” the FBI declaration read.
According to the FBI declaration, attendees of the Philly meeting “discussed how ‘Samah’ would one day be labeled as a terrorist organization by the US government,” the document said, adding they “discussed the need to create a new, uncompromised front group in the United States under the veil of some cover palatable to the American public.”
To offer an analogy, in the 1950’s, “upstanding citizens” who could not “get their hands dirty” with the vile activities of the Ku Klux Klan created a series of organizations called “Citizens’ Councils.” These were front groups for KKK and other white supremacist efforts to offer a more-palatable front for the repugnant activities of the organization for whom they provided cover.
Similarly, according to the FBI document, CAIR operates as a front group for Hamas while masquerading as an advocacy organization for civil rights.
Remember this the next time CAIR speaks-up about alleged civil rights issues…
