The Council on Islamic Relations, better known as CAIR, has announced the terrorism linked group will host a town hall meeting Friday night with Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring. The town hall will center around opposing President Trump's executive order temporarily barring refugees and visitors from Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Iran and Sudan to the United States.
"Join representatives of CAIR, Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center and MAS-PACE at a town hall meeting in Falls Church, Va., on the Trump administrations Muslim Ban 2.0. Learn how the ban impacts your civil rights. The event will also include a free 'Citizenship Application Clinic,'" the event invite states.
Trump's travel order doesn't single out Muslims, despite what extremists groups like CAIR continue to claim. In fact, Christians and other religious minority groups under genocide by the Islamic State in Syria and Libya are also barred from entering the country under the ban.
CAIR has been tied to the terrorist organization Hamas, which sends suicide bombers into Israel and encourages knife attacks. CAIR was also an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.
One of the most significant terrorism prosecutions brought by the government since 9/11 commenced trial last month in federal district court in Dallas. The governments 42-count indictment charges seven individuals and the Holy Land Foundation the biggest Islamic charity in the United States with offenses including conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, namely, Hamas.
The charges are dramatic. According to the indictment, U.S. based members of the Muslim Brotherhood established a Palestine Committee that was ultimately charged with the task of raising funds supporting Hamass efforts to eliminate the state of Israel. After the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, the Palestine Committee swung into high gear. At a secret three-day meeting in Philadelphia in October, 1993 (monitored by the FBI), those in attendance discussed how best to continue to support Hamas without being viewed as terrorists.
In 2014, the United Arab Emirates put CAIR on their official terrorist organization list and the group has long standing ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
So, we have a mozlum ban that doesn’t include the LARGEST mozlum country huh?

What a POS Mark Herring is...
I think a lot of people would agree that CAIR is either a hate group and/or a terrorist support group.
I guess we can now include the Virginia AG as being part of this cabal. Great. Just what the country does NOT need.
CAIR is a terrorist front group.
Exactly! If what Mark Herring is doing isn't treason it's dang close to it.
Of course.......because CAIR=Obama=Saudi Arabia.
Obama needs to be arrested and CAIR needs to be placed on terrorist list and outlawed in this country with it’s members expelled to Saudi Arabia.
I think it’s time to name the Democrat Party a terrorist organization.
And all of their hack judges too.
He looks like a ‘you know what’...
When Trump is able to get his entire cabinet in place and people get settled, CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, along with any group promoting Sharia Law need to be put on the Terrorist Banned from the USA list. And any attorneys that have linked up with them, like the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center. Kick them all out, to Syria or Yemen.
You’ld think Dem VA AG Herring could find a group to support him other than terrorist linked CAIR.
He is SUCH a piece of crap, I’m not surprised.
Amen...It’s way past time to start acting on terrorist supporters in the nation instead of blowing hot air.
Bin laden from hell smiles
What the heck has happened to Virginia?
Elect John Adams, VA, Attorney General! Clerked for David Sentelle and Clarence Thomas.
What the hell is taking Trump to designate CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist organizations?
so long to designate
