CAIR: Islamists Fooling the Establishment
http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=21528 ^ | Daniel Pipes and Sharon Chadha

But there is another side to CAIR that has alarmed many people in positions to know. The Department of Homeland Security refuses to deal with it. Senator Charles Schumer (Democrat, New York) describes it as an organization “which we know has ties to terrorism.”[2] Senator Dick Durbin (Democrat, Illinois) observes that CAIR is “unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with groups that are suspect.” Steven Pomerantz, the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, notes that “CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.” The family of John P. O’Neill, Sr., the former FBI counterterrorism chief who perished at the World Trade Center, named CAIR in a lawsuit as having “been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism” responsible for the September 11 atrocities. Counterterrorism expert Steven Emerson calls it “a radical fundamentalist front group for Hamas.”[

CAIR isn't fooling anyone except for the people who wish to be fooled.

CAIR isn't fooling anyone except for the people who wish to be fooled.

Unfortunately, that's most of our politicians including the President.

This article makes a good point that political correctness is often used to shield those who wish us ill. That is as true of Communist Feminism and the NAACP as it is of CAIR. There are many organizations like CAIR who are the opposite of what they pretend to be. They use our abundant freedoms, even to the stretching point, and class action law suits to intimidate law enforcement and shield themselves from scrutiny.

Communism and Islam are the same evil traveling under different names.

All engaged in pushing the envelope, stretching the legallity of their existence, driving their agenda to the absoloute maximum, testing just at what point do their activities become quite obviously against the law or treasonous...and laughing up their sleeves because we look away and pretend it's not happening.

Why? Is it because to effectively counter-act their destructive, undermining, anti-West activities, we must clarify who we are at war against - and are hampered by the fact that most of them are American/Australian/European citizens?

Protected and joined by the Left in their endeavours to destroy Western culture and capitalism, to declare war on islamofascism sounds like civil war to me.

-- Points to Ponder --
CAIR Employees And Officials Support Terror

Senior CAIR employee Randall Todd Royer, a/k/a “Ismail” Royer, pled guilty and was sentenced to twenty years in prison for participating in a network of militant jihadists centered in Northern Virginia. He admitted to aiding and abetting three persons who sought training in a terrorist camp in Pakistan for the purpose of waging jihad against American troops in Afghanistan. Royer’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed with CAIR.

CAIR's Director of Community Relations, Bassem Khafagi , was arrested by the United States due to his ties with a terror-financing front group. Khafagi pled guilty to charges of visa and bank fraud, and agreed to be deported to Egypt. Khafagi’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed by CAIR.

On December 18, 2002, Ghassan Elashi, founding board member of CAIR-Texas, a founder of the Holy Land Foundation, and a brother-in-law of Musa Abu Marzook , was arrested by the United States and charged with, among other things, making false statements on export declarations, dealing in the property of a designated terrorist organization, conspiracy and money laundering. Ghassan Elashi committed his crimes while working at CAIR, and was found Guilty.

CAIR Board Member Imam Siraj Wahaj, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing, has called for replacing the American government with an Islamic caliphate, and warned that America will crumble unless it accepts Islam.

Rabih Hadid served as a CAIR Fundraiser. Haddad was co-founder of the Global Relief Foundation (“GRF”). GRF was designated by the US Treasury Department for financing the Al Qaida and other terrorist organizations and its assets were frozen by the US Government on December 14, 2001.

I believe they are called "moderate" or "mainstream" muslims by some.

I'm not sure how they'll ever make their ideology compatible with civilized society, and doubt they ever intend to.
