Skip to comments.Occupy CAIR?: You wonít believe Islamic groupís ties to anti-Wall Street movement
Posted on 11/26/2011 7:22:38 AM PST by tutstar
The recent executive director of the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations South Florida chapter is a founder and spokesperson of Occupy Miami, KleinOnline has learned. Mohammad Malik currently serves as an activist with several other Islamic groups. He has led hate-filled anti-Israel protests in which participants were filmed wearing Hamas paraphernalia while chanting Nuke Israel and Go back to the oven a reference to Jews being killed in the Holocaust. Malik has been widely quoted in the Florida news media in recent weeks speaking for Occupy Miami. The Miami Herald identified Malik as one of the organizers of Occupy Miamis downtown campsite headquarters. Weve established that we can be here, Malik told the Herald, speaking as one of the first Occupy Miami organizers. People said we were stupid amateurs who dont know what were doing
But we did it. Weve survived and were growing. Last week, the Florida Independent reported Miami police had asked Occupy activists to temporarily leave their camp digs. The Independent quoted Malik, identified as protesting with the group since the beginning, as stating there were a lot of cops in the area, but protesters were trying to figure out the situation so that it doesnt escalate. The Independent previously quoted Malik as an unemployed Miami native who has worked with the ACLU and is the current spokesperson for Occupy Miami. In September 2010, Malik was appointed as the director of CAIRs South Florida chapter, covering the region of Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. In March 2010, Malik organized a CAIR dinner in Miami. The keynote speaker was Siraj Wahhaj, who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj has also defended the convicted WTC bomb plotters and has urged the Islamic takeover of America.

Aaron is Jewish and often broadcasts from TelAviv. I've heard interviews he's done with Hamas leaders and other terrorists. He is owning investigative reporting with many breaking stories and others will report on his items after he has broken the story. You don't want to miss his reports.
If you want to get the breaking scoop on OWS (Occupy Wall Street ) and other great stories there are several options available for you.
Please see also the info I placed in post 1 with links to more info from Aaron Klein.
Ping to another OWS story by AK,
I won’t ping to you any further ones if you don’t want me to.
Aaron has exposed some other incidents of antisemitism at the OWS camps. He had links to them on the exposeoccupy twitter account.
I’d really like to read his book Red Army. He went with copies of it to OWS in NY. He is a bold young man.
Thanks tutstar for the topic, and thanks bayouranger for the graphic.
Grover Norquist tells us that CAIR is a good group and Muslims are natural Republicans. For Norquist is an honourable man; so are they (CAIR, ISNA, the MSA) all, all honourable men.

Illinois State Governments Muslim Brotherhood Love Affair
Posted By Ryan Mauro On November 28, 2011 @ 12:38 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage
The Muslim Brotherhoods stated objective in the U.S. is to wage a grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house. This is done through thinly-disguised front organizations with credentials as moderates that can win the affection of the media and officials. These fronts relationship with the government of the state of Illinois is a perfect example of this strategys success.
On August 30, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced who would serve on his newly-created Muslim American Advisory Council. Among those chosen were Ahmed Rehab and Safaa Zarzour. The former is the National Strategic Communications Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Executive-Director of its Chicago chapter. The latter is the secretary-general of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and is the chairman of CAIR-Chicagos board. ISNA is listed in the Brotherhoods own documents as one of our organizations and the organizations of our friends.
Both CAIR and ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood fronts and are listed by the federal government as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, which was shut down for financing Hamas. CAIRs founders belonged to the Islamic Association for Palestine, which was also shut down as a front for Hamas. The two organizations went to court to get their designations lifted, but a judge determined that the government provided ample evidence connecting them to Hamas to justify the labels.
