Democrats are more concerned about preserving the reputation of Islam than they are about protecting Americans. They care so much about political correctness that they don’t bother to look at the danger from radical Islamists around us, instead, they embrace them. While Democrats blame the weather for jihadis, jihadis are infiltrating our government and influencing our policies.
CAIR was out immediately to protect clock boy when he didn’t need protecting. The narrative they promote is when you see something, do nothing.
CAIR is opposed to the no-fly list but not because of guns, they want us disarmed, but because so many Islamists make the list. They are opposed to surveillance.
CAIR has been at the forefront of terrorism in this country. When the San Bernardino jihadis committed their heinous act, it was CAIR that represented the family, condemned the act but immediately proclaimed their fear of a rise in Islamophobia. They singlehandedly promote the overhyped, pretty much non-existent phobia.
On December 18th, the White House ignored moderate Muslims who are trying to reform more radical elements in favor of inviting the UAE-designated terrorist group and the FBI unindexed co-conspirator CAIR.
Hassan Shibly, the CEO for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) went to the White House as a representative of the American Muslim community. The meeting was on combatting religious discrimination.
Shibly accused the FBI of killing two men in cold blood in separate incidents.
Since 2008, FBI policy has barred outreach communication with CAIR officials due to documents seized by law enforcement which place CAIR and its founders at the heart of a Hamas-support network at the time of CAIR’s creation. Eyewitness interviews recently obtained by the International Project on Terrorism further detail CAIR’s ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Until it determines “whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner,” a senior official wrote in 2009.
Why would the White House include CAIR when FBI policy is to avoid the group? A White House spokesperson wouldn’t say, telling the Investigative Project of Terrorism in an email Tuesday afternoon that “CAIR state chapter representatives have been included in broad meetings” with the White House and other cabinet-level agencies.
Terrorists organizations advise our governments, sue over any invented slight against Muslims, promote US policies that endanger the safety of its citizens in favor of political correctness, and no on calls them out. Well, actually some do, but we have to go the the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia for that.
The UAE labeled a number of Muslim groups in the west as lobbyists for the Muslim Brotherhood and the Brotherhood and these groups were listed as terrorists. In the US, President Obama hires staff from these groups, invites them to the White House, and follows their counsel.
The Council on American Islamic Relations or CAIR and the Muslim American Society or MAS top the UAE list.
CAIR is a wing of Hamas and MAS is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the umbrella organization and father of most radical Islamic groups worldwide.
CAIR, an Islamic civil liberties advocacy group, was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 trial of the Holy Land Foundation in Texas. Officials from the Holy Land Foundation were later found guilty of diverting funds to Hamas, which has led some American lawmakers to refer to CAIR as a terrorist organization.
Some think it’s unfair for CAIR to be listed because they were not convicted. The reason for that is Eric Holder chose to sweep the case under the rug after the FBI said there was cause to bring them to trial.
The 2014 announcement signaled that the U.A.E. was going after groups it perceives to be providing ideological and financial backing to militants “as well as groups that carry out direct acts of terrorism,” said Ghanem Nuseibeh, founder of Cornerstone Global Associates, which advises clients on risk in the Middle East.
“The U.A.E. is saying: ‘Enough is enough. We have to deal with the whole ecosystem of terrorism’,” he said by phone from Dubai. Sheikh Mohammed, the U.A.E. premier and the ruler of Dubai, wrote in an editorial in September that military action alone wasn’t enough to destroy extremist groups.
“[The list is] a clear message to the world about the UAE’s stance against terrorism, extremism and fanaticism, focusing on and putting a cordon around all subversive entities that seek to undermine the security and stability of the state and seeks to protect the community from extremist ideology,” a top UAE official said.
The objective is “to cut off access to all forms of material and moral support for terrorism, to drain its resources, to prevent the incitement of terrorist crimes, to prevent the praising of terrorism and to work to stop the spreading of such crimes or any encouragement of the committing of them.”
The Brotherhood is the poisonous well from which almost all terror groups spring. Their job is to distract, infiltrate, brainwash, and dilute all criticism. They exist to keep people focused on faux Islamophobia while the rest of the groups terrorize and overwhelm. Hamas’ goal according to their charter is to destroy Israel.
The UAE foreign minister at the time said they have a lower threshold than the west in stamping out terrorist violence.
President Obama put tremendous pressure on the UAE to remove the groups from the list.
CAIR and MAS issued a joint statement last December in which they said in part:
“The two American Muslim organizations and the U.S. government pledged to work together to achieve a positive solution to the UAE designations.”
The Obama administration’s State Department recently “affirmed that department officials meet regularly with representatives of CAIR and MAS,” according to the groups.
This is what our US spokesperson said:
