In what can only be described as a shocking revelation, a new piece of information has been revealed that shows a direct connection to an American Muslim support group and radical Islamic terrorists.
CAIR – the Council on American-Islamic Relations – portrays itself as an advocacy group protecting the civil rights of American Muslims.
But, according to Breitbart, that might not be all of the story:
An FBI chart has surfaced depicting connections between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the chart shows CAIR falling under the umbrella of the jihadi outfit.
This FBI chart details the Hamas-related groups, which included CAIR, that were created to ultimately support the Palestinian terrorist organization. It also established Nabil Sadoun’s (former CAIR national board of directors member and vice chairman) connections to Hamas.
The IPT also obtained groundbreaking new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents that trail CAIR back to its roots as a subversive Hamas-related group.
This is shocking, but not totally surprising. Just about every time there is a domestic terrorism incident in America, CAIR shows up and publicly calls for protection of Muslims.
After the San Bernardino radical Islamic terror attack, CAIR quickly held a press conference with a relative of the murderers attempting to downplay the heinous assault.
Later, CAIR would brazenly claim that all Americans were partly responsible for what had happened in San Bernardino.
Brietbart has more background about this shady organization:
In 2007, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, a Hamas financing case that would result in the FBI ceasing its working relationship with CAIR. The HLF trial was the largest terror-financing case in American history. In 2008, during a retrial of the HLF case, an FBI Special Agent labeled CAIR as “a front group for Hamas” during her trial testimony. In 2010, a federal judge reiterated that his court had “ample evidence” that CAIR was involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.” CAIR, which relies upon millions of dollars in Saudi cash, was recently listed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a terrorist organization.
The group, which fashions itself as a civil rights voice for American Muslims, was founded by members of the Palestine Committee (PALCOM), an organization “established to support Hamas,” according to the chart. Nihad Awad, currently CAIR’s executive director, was previously an official at PALCOM.
The FBI declaration submitted in connection with removal proceedings for Nabil Sadoun (a former top CAIR official) said PALCOM members used coded language to discuss the “true nature” of their clandestine operations in support of Hamas. During a Philadelphia conference, which was being wiretapped by the FBI, they “referred to Hamas as ‘Samah’–Hamas spelled backwards–or simply as ‘the Movement,’” the FBI declaration said.
“It is clear that the true nature of the PALCOM meeting was to discuss the means to support Hamas’ goal to undermine the peace process (between Israel and the Palestinians) and to thwart law enforcement in the United States,” the FBI declaration read.
Hmmm . . . it sounds like CAIR should be thoroughly investigated for their terrorism connections. And, if any are found, CAIR’s leadership should be arrested and tried for helping radical Islamic terrorists kill innocent people.
But, of course, none of this will happen on Barack Obama’s watch. He has already sent AG Loretta Lynch out to threaten all American not to criticize Muslims or face federal prosecution.
Nope. As long as Barack Hussein Obama is in the White House, radical Islamic terrorists know they have “friends in high places.”
