We’ve often pointed out that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is not the warm and fuzzy group they’d have you believe. After all, CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror funding case in our history — The Holy Land Foundation — and was listed in the Muslim Brotherhood’s own Explanatory Memorandum as one of its American arms. (And by the way, if you haven’t yet downloaded this document, the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for “civilizational jihad” here in the U.S., you really must, especially after what you’re going to read next).
Apparently in the world of CAIR, the right to practice religion freely means the right to impose it on others – as reported by US World report:
The Director of the Dallas Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR), Mustafa Carroll, made a surprising and shocking statement during a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas. He said,
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”
Such a statement captures the Trojan horse that is CAIR. While they sell themselves simply as a Muslim advocacy group (similar to the ACLU, but exclusively for Muslims), that couldn’t be further from the truth.
They cry “Islamophobia” at the drop of the pen, but there’s good reason to be CAIR-phobic:
In 2014, the United Arab Emirates placed CAIR, along with 81 other groups, on its list of terrorist organizations. Some believe the action was to done to show a stand against the Terrorist Organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, who seized power in Egypt during the Arab Spring. It should be noted that members of the Obama Administration openly endorsed the events in Egypt that led to the Muslim Brotherhood taking power, likening it to the Civil Rights Movement in America. It has been suspected that CAIR has had ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, and currently, the Obama administration is working to get CAIR removed from the list of terrorist groups.
Need more evidence that CAIR should be designated a terrorist organization? Not only have two CAIR officials been indicted on terrorism charges:
In 2011 and 2012, during an event that The Blaze covered extensively, Islamic institutes coordinated with the White House to target the counter terrorism training within the FBI. The event was called ‘The Purge,’ and the result was the removal of more than 700 documents and 300 presentations. Some of the presentations removed included information about Al Qaeda and the trainers within the FBI were allegedly not given the opportunity to appeal when their presentations were rejected. They were not even allowed to know who it was that was objecting to their work. CAIR was one of the institutes that pushed for this event.
The socialist presidential candidate Norman Thomas once stated that Americans would unknowingly adopt socialism under the name of liberalism. CAIR wants us to unknowingly adopt Sharia under the name of tolerance.
