    An American student who discovered he was included on the government’s no-fly list and was barred from a U.S.-bound flight from Costa Rica was reunited with family and friends after he flew to Mexico and then walked across the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday evening. Kevin Iraniha, 27, was met at the San Ysidro crossing south of his home in San Diego by his father and two brothers as well as some supporters and reporters after a two-day delay that included FBI questioning and rerouting his trip through Mexico City and Tijuana.

    President Barack Obama’s deputies are holding “hundreds” of closed-door meetings with a jihad-linked lobbying group that is widely derided by critics as a U.S. arm of the theocratic Muslim Brotherhood. The admission of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations came from George Selim, the White House’s new director for community partnerships, which was formed in January to ensure cooperation by law enforcement and social service agencies with Muslim identity groups in the United States. “There is hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” he told The Daily Caller, after being...

    The new skirt length policy was instituted for safety reasons, but as far as these Muslim employees are concerned, safety be damned. It is all about forcing accommodation, in line with the principle that wherever Islamic law and practice conflict with American law and practice, American law and practice must give way. "New skirt length policy prompts Muslim walk-out at Minn. business," from KMSP TV, June 6 (thanks to all who sent this in): LE CENTER, Minn. (KMSP) - More than 30 Somali employees walked out in protest of dress code changes at a privately-owned business in Le Center, Minn....

    SAN DIEGO — A San Diego State University graduate trying to return home after a family celebration of his commencement from a master’s program in Costa Rica was told he is on a U.S. government no-fly list and could not board a plane, a local Islamic community official said Wednesday night. Kevin Iraniha, 27, a Muslim who was born and raised in San Diego, was “shocked” and said he has never been involved in criminal or suspicious activity, said Hanif Mohebi, executive director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Iraniha had just obtained his master’s...

    With Father's Day just over a week away, it is important to publicize the ongoing situation with Best Buy and CAIR. Best Buy was founded by Richard Schulze in 1966 and the first store opened in St. Paul, Minnesota. Listed in 2008 as a Fortune 500 Company, Best Buy declares this to investors and employees. Our formula is simple: we're a growth company focused on better solving the unmet needs of our customers-and we rely on our employees to solve those puzzles. Thanks for stopping. Although it seems a bit truncated as a mission statement, clearly the focus is on...

    The Council of American Islamic Relations [CAIR] may tout itself as an “organization that challenges stereotypes of Islam and Muslims,” and as group that was formed “to challenge anti-Muslim discrimination nationwide.” But in fighting the good fight against hate, at least one of its regional leaders demonizes Jews as the source of Muslims’ problems. “Who are those who incurred the wrath of Allah?” CAIR-Michigan Executive Director Dawud Walid asked in a May 25 sermon at the Islamic Organization of North America mosque in Warren, Mich. “They are the Jews, they are the Jews,” he answered himself in Arabic. Aside from...

    It is a continuing outrage that CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), an Islamic supremacist organization with deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (and particularly to Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch), is treated as if it were a “civil rights organization” — its top officials given media visibility and respectful attention by the commentariat and agencies of government. At the indispensable Investigative Project on Terrorism, Daniel E. Rogell has the latest: a May 25 “sermon” in which CAIR’s Dawud Walid rhetorically asks, “Who are those who incurred the wrath of Allah?” Then, he answered his own question: “They are the...

    Respect, a "newsletter about law and diversity," is a publication of the New Jersey State Bar Foundation. It is geared for middle- and high school students. The recent Spring 2012, Vol. 11, No. 3 article1 entitled "Fear Propels Religious Attacks" by Cheryl Baisden is of particular interest, because while it purports to have a fair-minded stance, the fact that CAIR, or the Council of American Islamic Relations, is cited as a credible source sheds serious doubt about the objectivity of the article. In fact, CAIR receives "financial support from foreign powers who have provided direct support to Osama bin Laden,...

    A rabbi’s declaration that he is an “Islamaphobe” and an accompanying speech at a Tea Party forum in San Mateo earlier this month has been called racist and hateful by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Rabbi Nachum Shifren and all the other candidates for U.S. Senate were invited to a candidate’s forum May 3 at the American Legion Hall in San Mateo, co-sponsored by the San Mateo County Republican Party and My Liberty, a local Tea Party group. Shifren told a cheering audience, “I am an Islamaphobe and everything we need to know about Islam, we...

    In April the Minnesota branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced that retail giant Best Buy had become a “Platinum Sponsor” for its fifth anniversary banquet. And former U.S. Marine James Canning decided to do something about it. In a YouTube video, the Iraq and Beirut veteran demonstrated his frustration with “one of his favorite stores” by cutting his Best Buy “Reward Zone” card in half. “Because of this support Best Buy has been giving the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, I can no longer conduct business with Best Buy.”

    A Michigan police department has made it clear that freedom of speech and the Constitutional right to peaceably assemble may only be enjoyed upon approval by the terror-promoting, Islamic group CAIR. On January 26th, Michigan State Representative David Agema and others hosted an event entitled “Constituting Michigan—Founding Principles Act” in the Allegan High School auditorium. The purpose of the event was “…to inform the public about the importance of honoring the United States Constitution, to recognize the internal threat to America posed by radical Muslims and the dangers to our free society caused by the imposition of Sharia law.” (1)...

    Amid shouts of "What about free speech?" from the audience, the Allegan Police Department ordered the event shut-down. School officials notified police that they had received a letter complaining about the event from Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI). The letter asked the school to disallow the event despite an existing contract. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U. S. history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation. As a result, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced...

School officials notified police that they had received a letter complaining about the event from Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI).

    Think again before buying your next flat-screen television or computing device from Best Buy. The struggling retail giant recently used profits from American consumers to fund the annual banquet of a group closely linked to Hamas. The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently listed Best Buy as a "Platinum Sponsor." Best Buy has refused to rule out future support for CAIR through numerous messages to its public relations department. The big box retailer is already in chaos amid the recent resignation of its CEO for personal misconduct, dwindling sales and bond downgrades.

    EL CAJON — Search warrant records obtained Wednesday in the beating death of an Iraqi-American woman show a family in turmoil and cast doubt on the likelihood that her slaying was a hate crime. Shaima Alawadi — Photo courtesy of Al Arabiya News Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother of five, was apparently planning to divorce her husband and move to Texas when she was killed, a family member told investigators, according to the court documents. The records obtained at El Cajon Superior Court also reveal Alawadi’s 17-year-old daughter, Fatima Alhimidi, who called 911 to report the attack, was distraught over...

    Muslim woman applies for job at McDonald’s wearing no headbag (hijab). She arrives at work the first day wearing a headbag which is prohibited. Soon she will have the litigation jihadists from CAIR filing a lawsuit against McDonalds on her behalf. The Muslim job applicant reported to CAIR-MI that she recently applied for employment at a McDonald’s restaurant in Rochester Hills, Mich. During the interview, she alleges that one of the restaurant managers told her that wearing an Islamic headbag, or hijab, would be a problem. The applicant contacted the manager within a week after the interview to inquire about...
