    The J Street political action committee has received tens of thousands of dollars in donations from dozens of Arab and Muslim Americans, as well as from several individuals connected to organizations doing Palestinian and Iranian issues advocacy, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Additionally, at least two State Department officials connected to Middle East issues have donated to the PAC, which gives money to candidates for US Congress supported by J Street. The organization describes itself as a "pro-Israel, pro-peace" lobby pushing for more American involvement and diplomacy in resolving the Middle East conflict. Arab and Muslim donors are extremely...

    Exclusive: Islamism and the So-called ‘Muslim Voting Bloc’: Shades of Theocracy M. Zuhdi Jasser July 4, 2008 The modus operandi for the political empowerment of Islamists in America is in full public display during every election cycle. The sad part is few realize how central "Islamic politics" is to the driving force of transnational Islamism and its threat to American security. The incessant attempts by American Islamist groups (like the MAS, CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA to name a few) to collectivize Muslims in the body politic - from voter registrations to their ideological grievance mill - point to their goals....
  • Front-gate--most strategically ominous case of official misconduct since China-gate.

    , It is now well-established in Washington that any scandal, no matter how seemingly innocuous, soon is given the suffix "-gate," establishing a lineal connection to the mother of all scandals, Watergate. Well, let me be the first to suggest that a recent scandal in the Pentagon be known hereafter as "Front-gate" in recognition of the central role played in the drama by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization designated by the Justice Department as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan). With the House and Senate both back in business this week, Front-gate should be subjected...

    Counterterrorism efforts got a major boost last week when a U.S. district court found three Muslim organizations and one individual, mostly based in the Chicago area, guilty of funding Hamas and fined them an astonishing $156 million. The four were found liable for their roles in the murder of an American teenager, David Boim, on May 13, 1996, when he was shot by Hamas operatives as he waited for a bus near Jerusalem. This case is important in itself, providing some measure of justice and relief for the Boim family. Beyond that, it helps fight terrorism in four ways. First,...

    The Wahhabi lobby's "profiling" targets anyone opposed to Islamist terrorism. The "Islamophobes" That Aren't By Stephen SchwartzTech Central Station | April 28, 2005A continuous propaganda of grievance emanates from the Wahhabi lobby in America - the range of organizations that make up the country's "Islamic" establishment. Backed by Saudi Arabia and its state cult, which is the most extreme form of the religion of Muhammad, as well as by the Muslim Brotherhood (based in Egypt), and the jihadist Jama'ati movement in Pakistan, these groups have benign names: the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR),...

    The documents seized in the FBI raid on the offices of Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) remain unread by Justice Department investigators, pending a federal Appeals Court ruling scheduled for August 27. Jefferson is anxious to overturn the ruling of federal Judge Hogan of the Washington, DC federal District Court, who allowed the raid. One can only surmise that the seized documents contain material even more embarrassing than the discovery of $90,000 in cash in Jefferson’s freezer. But we already know a bit about the charges and some of the alleged partners of Congressman Jefferson. Two people have pleaded guilty to...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), headquartered in Washington, is perhaps the best-known and most controversial Muslim organization in North America. CAIR presents itself as an advocate for Muslims' civil rights and the spokesman for American Muslims. "We are similar to a Muslim NAACP," says its communications director, Ibrahim Hooper.[1] Its official mission—"to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding"[2]—suggests nothing problematic. Starting with a single office in 1994, CAIR now claims thirty-one affiliates, including a branch in Canada, with more steadily being added. In addition...

    Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee was supposed to focus long-overdue attention on the single most important factor in the future course of the War for the Free World: Which side is Saudi Arabia on? Unfortunately, the press of other business has caused this most timely of hearings to be postponed. The reason this question deserves urgent attention should be obvious: Since November 2001, there has been a roughly three-fold increase in the price of a barrel of oil, from $18 to as much as $70. As a result, Saudi Arabia — which currently exports about 10 million barrels per day...

Oh, how they're compromised.

    As atrocities make news around the world, CAIR and its ilk are finding it difficult to defend Islamic extremism. Although few American journalists know how to report on it, a change is slowly developing in the American Muslim community. Terrorist atrocities, exemplified by the recent series of horrific, videotaped beheadings, have increased in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and other countries, even as the U.S.-led campaign against Islamist extremism, both political and military, continues. The federal authorities, in the Report of the 9/11 Commission, finally summoned up the will to identify the enemy: not merely "terrorism," but radical Islamist ideology. Given...

    In 2002, the spokesman for FBI director Robert Mueller memorably described the American Muslim Council (AMC) as the "the most mainstream Muslim group in the United States." A year later, the Catholic bishops called the AMC "the premier, mainstream Muslim group in Washington." Its founder and long-time chief, Abdurahman Alamoudi, was a Washington fixture. He had many meetings with both Clintons in the White House and once joined George W. Bush at a prayer service dedicated to victims of the 9/11 attacks.

Said the otherwise perceptive Rove, in direct response to the Center for Security Policy's private and public warnings, "There's no there there." Actually, the evidence of undesirable influence is unmistakable to anyone willing to look for it, as the Center has documented for the past two years. The problem is...

    ActivismMy (almost) conversation with Colin PowellAli Abunimah, The Electronic Intifada, 16 June 2003 As soon as US Secretary of State Colin Powell sat down I decided to seize the moment to go and speak with him. He had just delivered the keynote address at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee's (ADC) annual convention on 14 June, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. I had been stewing in my seat, listening to Powell give an address to the packed banquet hall in which he offered Arab-Americans and Arab people no positive message, except for pro forma declarations of how valued Arab-Americans...

    Immediately following this introductory paragraph is the relevant portion of an email received (5/22/03) from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

This one had many news stories on other topics, but carried the subject line, "CAIR-NET: Cal Thomas Echoes Nazi Propaganda": IMPORTANT NOTE: Syndicated columnist Cal Thomas recently published a commentary portraying Muslims as "enemies" within America's border and smearing any Islamic group that promotes political activism and participation. If you see this editorial in your local newspaper (his column is published in hundreds of papers), please...

    Muslims groom candidates for 2004 Islamic group on nationwide tour to urge political participation Posted: May 20, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com A leading Islamic lobby group is on a nationwide tour to introduce Muslims to American politics. Building an influential voting bloc for the 2004 elections and eventually seeing Muslim candidates on ballots for everything from city council to congressional seats are two aims of the Virginia-based Muslim American Society, the St. Paul Pioneer press reported. The MAS also wants to increase campaign donations for politicians who have represented Muslim interests, including civil-rights protections and immigrant issues....

    Among the WahhabisHatred’s KingdomHow Saudi Arabia Supports the New Global Terrorism by Dore Gold Regnery. 309 pp. $27.95Reviewed by Alex Alexiev AFTER A year and a half in which the war on terrorism consisted essentially of large tactical operations—liquidating the Taliban regime, destroying al Qaeda’s base in Afghanistan, rounding up Islamist agents around the world—the U.S. finally took its first step of truly strategic significance. Operation Iraqi Freedom was intended to deny to the Baghdad regime and its Islamist fellow-travelers the ability to develop and use weapons of mass destruction, thus removing one of the most urgent long-term threats to...

    Islamic Radicals On CampusBy Erick StakelbeckFrontPageMagazine.com | April 23, 2003 The Constitution of the Muslim Student's Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA) states that the organization’s major purpose is "to serve the best interest of Islam and Muslims in the United States and Canada so as to enable them to practice Islam as a complete way of life." The truth, however, is something far less benign. Although it presents itself as a benevolent, faith-based campus organization, the MSA in reality serves as a North American base for Saudi-funded Islamic extremism. Created in 1963 (the University of Illinois hosted the...

    FBI directors don't make a habit of breaking bread with organizations their agents may soon be investigating, perhaps even closing. Robert S. Mueller III, however, is about to make precisely this blunder: On June 28, he is scheduled to deliver a lunch talk to the American Muslim Council. Mueller accepted this invitation, his spokesman Bill Carter explains, because the FBI regards the AMC as "the most mainstream Muslim group in the United States." The AMC does indeed seek to convey a message of moderation. Its event this month, for example, is reassuringly titled "American Muslims: Part of America." AMC also...

    GROVER NORQUIST'S STRANGE ALLIANCE WITH RADICAL ISLAM. Fevered Pitch by Franklin Foer Post date 11.01.01 | Issue date 11.12.01 On the afternoon of September 26, George W. Bush gathered 15 prominent Muslim- and Arab-Americans at the White House. With cameras rolling, the president proclaimed that "the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good." It was a critically important moment, a statement to the world that America's Muslim leaders unambiguously reject the terror committed in Islam's name. Unfortunately, many of the leaders present hadn't unambiguously rejected it. To the president's left sat Dr. Yahya Basha, president of the ...

    (UPI) -- A prominent U.S. civil rights and advocacy group urged the Department of Justice Tuesday to rescind a new policy directive to the FBI to count local mosques for inclusion in performance goals in counter terrorism investigations. The Council on American-Islamic Relations made that demand following the publication of an article in Newsweek magazine detailing the policy instituted by FBI Director Robert Mueller earlier this month. According to Newsweek, FBI field offices nationwide are to develop demographic profiles of their regions, including the number of local mosques. The profiles will then be used to set specific numerical goals for...

    The Wahhabis of CAIR, the Islamophobes of Pravda, and the neofascists of Antiwar.com form a genuine axis of evil. ===================================================== I derived a kind of grim amusement from the news that the so-called Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its chief censor of American comments on Islam, Ibrahim Hooper, have protested the republication of a comment by Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center on frontpagemag.com. CAIR objects to Rabbi Hier’s statements appearing on frontpagemag.com, because the latter has published the noted Islamophobe, Srdjan Trifkovic. This is interesting because CAIR has repeatedly distributed libelous and Islamophobic attacks on me...

    Islam has an image problem, and American Muslim organizations know it. If you ask them, this problem comes from people lying about Islam. Irresponsible, hate-filled Christian preachers and others decry Islam as a violent religion, Muslim spokesmen claim, and this bigotry gives rise to acts of violence against Muslims. The Council on American Islamic Relations and other Muslim groups have dedicated themselves to heading off such attacks by setting the record straight. On its website CAIR says that it was established in order to "promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America," and declares that "we believe misrepresentations...

    The latest public relations missive from Riyadh complains bitterly that alarmist Americans "have gotten out of control" with accusations that Saudi Arabia supports terrorism. But there is good reason to state the opposite: That we ignore to our peril the degree to which the Saudis spread extremist anti-Americanism. It is particularly unsettling that the Saudis stoke such sentiments here, in our own country. They do this by funding American outposts of the intolerant, militant Wahhabi form of Islam. The Saudis have poured an astonishing sum of money into this effort. Reza F. Safa, author of Inside Islam, estimated that since...
