CAIR Founded by “Islamic Terrorists”?--CAIR cuts back on crucial libel claims
Frontpage Magazine ^ | 7-28-05 | Daniel Pipes and Sharon Chadha

Posted on 07/28/2005 5:12:46 AM PDT by SJackson

CAIR cuts back on crucial libel claims in its infamous lawsuit against anti-CAIR.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, Inc., filed a defamation lawsuit against Andrew Whitehead, of Anti-CAIR (or ACAIR), a grass-roots project whose name explains its mission: to expose the largest, most vocal, and dangerous Islamist organization in North America.

CAIR’s March 2004 lawsuit is part of what seems to be a policy of . In this case, CAIR claimed it had been harmed by six statements on ACAIR’s website, including CAIR’s being founded by Hamas supporters, being partially funded by terrorists, and intending to impose Islamic law on the United States.

Then, on June 20, 2005, CAIR filed an amended motion that substantially cut back on its libel claims, retaining just portions of two of the original six statements. With original misspellings retained, the offending passages are:

·        Let their be no doubt that CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization….

·        [CAIR] seeks to overthrow constitutional government in the United States….

Why did CAIR drastically reduce its claims versus Whitehead?

It might have to do with Whitehead, admirably represented by Reed Rubinstein of Greenberg Traurig LLP, having responded to CAIR’s lawsuit with an extensive and well informed set of discovery requests and documents. These filings perhaps established for CAIR the depth of Whitehead’s knowledge and the soundness of his opinions. If so, then CAIR’s leadership concluded that the bulk of its case against Whitehead would collapse in court.

CAIR’s filing an amended motion has two apparent implications: that CAIR has tacitly acknowledges the truth of Whitehead’s deleted assertions; and those assertions can now be repeated with legal impunity.

 

We list here the key statements that CAIR no longer deems legally improper, followed by some speculations as to why it might have decided not to contest them in court.

 

·        [CAIR is an] organization founded by Hamas supporters….

 

·        CAIR was started by Hamas members….

 

·        CAIR … was founded by Islamic terrorists. 

CAIR’s leadership must have stretched its collective memory back to 1994 and recalled (along with counterterrorism expert Matthew Epstein) that Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad, former officials of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), founded the organization, while IAP’s president, Rafeeq Jabar, was (according to Steve Emerson) one of CAIR’s founding directors.

Former FBI counterterrorism chief Oliver “Buck” Revell) has described the IAP as “a front organization for Hamas.” This linkage between the IAP and Hamas was decisively established in 2004, when a federal judge in Chicago found it partially liable for $156 million in damages for its role in aiding and abetting Hamas in the murder of David Boim, a 17-year-old American citizen.  

And, CAIR no doubt remembered that it had been caught by Joe Kaufman exploiting the 9/11 attacks to raise funds for two Hamas-linked fundraising organizations, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) and the Global Relief Foundation  

 

·        [CAIR]  is partially funded by terrorists…

Terrorists themselves don’t literally give out money, but organizations that fund terrorism also fund CAIR.

The Saudi-based Islamic Development Bank, gave CAIR $250,000 in August 1999. The IDB also manages funds (Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa) which finance suicide bombings against Israeli civilians by providing funds to the families of Palestinian “martyrs.”

The International Institute of Islamic Thought, an organization linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, gave CAIR’s Washington office $14,000 in 2003, according to IIIT tax filings. David Kane, who investigated IIIT as part of Operation Green Quest’s probe into some one hundred companies and organizations, described in a sworn affidavit the various ways in which it may have funded suspected terrorist-front organizations. 

The International Relief Organization (also called the International Islamic Relief Organization, or IIRO), a Saudi-financed organization being investigated by the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance for terrorism financing donated at least $12,000 to CAIR.

·        CAIR receives direct funding from Islamic terrorist supporting countries.

CAIR has received funds from Saudi Arabia, such as the $250,000 from the Islamic Development Bank noted above. In addition; the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a Saudi-sponsored charity (and another one suspected of financing terror), announced in December 1999 that it “was extending both moral and financial support to CAIR” to help it construct its $3.5 million headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Saudi Arabia, the homeland Osama bin Laden and fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers, is reasonably described as “terrorist supporting.” The 9/11 Commission staff describes Saudi Arabia as having an environment where “fund-raisers and facilitators throughout Saudi Arabia and the Gulf” raised money for al Qaeda. In July 2005, U.S. Treasury Undersecretary Stuart Levey stated that “even today, we believe that Saudi donors may still be a significant source of terrorist financing, including for the insurgency in Iraq.”

·        CAIR has proven links to… Islamic terrorists. 

It’s easy to understand why CAIR chose to leave this one alone, what with five current or former CAIR affiliates arrested, convicted, or deported on terrorism-related charges:

Randall Royer, CAIR’s communications specialist and civil rights coordinator, was indicted on charges of  conspiring to help Al-Qaeda and the Taliban to battle American troops in Afghanistan. He later pled guilty to lesser firearms-related charges and was sentenced to twenty years in prison.

Ghassan Elashi, the founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, was convicted in July 2004 along with his four brothers of having illegally shipped computers from their Dallas-area business, InfoCom Corporation, to Libya and Syria, two designated state sponsors of terrorism. In April of 2005, Elashi and two brothers were also convicted of knowingly doing business with Mousa Abu Marzook, a senior Hamas leader and Specially Designated Terrorist. He continues to face charges that he provided more than $12.4 million to Hamas while he was running the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), America’s largest Islamic charity.

Bassem Khafagi, CAIR’s community relations director, pleaded guilty in September 2003 to lying on his visa application and for passing bad checks for substantial amounts in early 2001, for which he was deported. Khafagi was also a founding member and president of the Islamic Assembly of North America (IANA), an organization under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice for terrorism-related activities.

Rabih Haddad, a CAIR fundraiser, was arrested on terrorism-related charges and deported from the United States due to his subsequent work as executive director of the Global Relief Foundation, a charity he co-founded; in October 2002, GRF was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. According to a CAIR complaint, Homam Albaroudi, a member of CAIR’s Michigan chapter and also a founding member and executive director of the IANA also founded the Free Rabih Haddad Committee.

Siraj Wahhaj, a CAIR advisory board member, was named in 1995 by U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White as a possible unindicted co-conspirator in connection with the plot to blow up New York City landmarks led by the blind sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman. 

·        CAIR is a fundamentalist organization dedicated to the overthrow of the United States Constitution and the installation of an Islamic theocracy in America

·        CAIR wishes nothing more than the implementation of a SHARIA law in American.

·        [CAIR seeks to replace the government of the United States] with an Islamist theocracy using our own Constitution as protection....

·        CAIR is here to make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States and to convert our country into an Islamic theocracy along the lines of Iran.

CAIR’s goals are clear, as indicated by its leaders’ sometimes revealing comments:  

Ihsan Bagby, a future CAIR board member, stated in the late 1980s that Muslims “can never be full citizens of this country,” referring to the United States, “because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.”

Ibrahim Hooper, the future CAIR spokesman, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune on April 4, 1993: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.”

Omar Ahmad, CAIR’s chairman, announced in July 1998 that “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” 

These facts suggest why CAIR felt it had to drop most of its libel claims against Andrew Whitehead. Should this case go to court, we will watch with interest how Whitehead’s two remaining opinions (that CAIR is a terrorist-supporting front organization and that it seeks to overthrow the constitutional government of the United States) will fare.

I'd be surprised if it went to court. Too much dirty laundry & bad publicity for CAIR.

CAIR's threats of lawsuits against others shouldn't be viewed as a deterrent, but as a means of bringing about their undoing and demise in this country.

Mr. Whitehead should be applauded for calling CAIR's bluff.

CAIR, like most other anti-American organizations, ACLU, NOW, etc... try to use the THREAT of a lawsuit to force their opponents into silence. In many situations, the group pressing the case has not interest in the publicity the case would generate. Or, as in the case of CAIR, having the courts show that the person they are suing was right.

They have, but people should realize that CAIR could never stand the scrutiny of a real court case. They are all bark and no bite, because they don't want the revelations from a court case publicized. After all the bad connections were publicized, they'd never get their spokespeople on another TV show and their organization would be rendered powerless.

Discovery is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I'm surprised CAIR-Hamas let it go this far. As the principal apologists for the Mohammedans the MSM has accorded them too much legitimacy. At the very least their nonprofit 501(c)(4) status should be revoked.

I often wonder why I bother to be affected at all by what CAIR says or does.

In a perfect world, all members of CAIR would be in prison and/orexpelled, and all their offices permanently shut.
In a less perfect world, everything that CAIR says or does, including legal actions, would be dismissed with a contemptuous "Don't be silly!".

I keep reminding myself that the permanent solution to this continuing societal venereal disease is a Constitutional Amendment limiting Constitutional rights and protections to American citizens and permanent residents.

Having proven this, is this not sufficient evidence for the Justice Department to shut them down? I mean they closed IAP offices for exactly the same thing. Done deal.
