hat could possibly go wrong? CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refusedtodenounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.
“Trump Administration Approves HAMAS-linked CAIR to Train U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Officers,” Center for Security Policy, November 8, 2019:
Three weeks after Oussama Jamaal, the Secretary General of the USCMO (US Council of Muslim Organizations, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s political umbrella group), penetrated the White House on 25 September 2019 to attend a symposium led by Vice President Mike Pence, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) allowed Sufyan Sohel, the Deputy Director of CAIR-Chicago, to facilitate a discussion and training session for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers at their offices near O’Hare International Airport on 15 October 2019.
According to the CAIR-Chicago website, Sohel “…gave an overview of Islamic faith traditions, illustrated the rich diversity of the Muslim community, and delved into the rise of Islamophobia and how bigoted policies, including the Muslim Travel Bans, affect Muslims and other marginalized communities.”
CAIR is the U.S. branch of HAMAS (a designated group on the Foreign Terrorist Organizations list), itself the Palestinian branch of the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR was named by the Department of Justice (DOJ) as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation (HLF) HAMAS terror funding trial. In 2009, following the 108-count unanimous guilty verdict in the HLF trial, the FBI announced that it was cutting all ties with CAIR. Unfortunately, neither the DOJ at the supervisory level nor the FBI’s field office in St. Cloud, MN would seem to have gotten the memo. A “hate crimes” event there, originally scheduled for 18 September 2019, eventually was
cancelled following protests by local activists, but not before the announcement went out that the FBI would be teaming up with CAIR-MN for the forum…ten years after it was supposed to have cut all ties.
While CAIR presents itself as a civil rights organization, individuals closely associated with it sport a long and well-documented history of engaging in subversive and seditious lines of effort against the USG as reported by the Center for Security Policy (CSP) in its 2015 publication Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party. Another red flag for the Trump administration should be the close relationship between Nihad Awad’s CAIR and the pro-HAMAS and openly jihadist Turkish government and Justice and Development Party (AKP) of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which are successfully running foreign hostile influence operations against the USG—on U.S. soil. (See the Diyanet Center of America at https://diyanetamerica.org/ as well as Chapter 2 of CSP’s 2018 monograph, “Ally No More: Erdogan’s New Turkish Caliphate and the Rising Jihadist Threat to the West” for details.)
If the Federal Bureau of Investigation supposedly suspended all formal contacts with CAIR in 2009 due to substantial evidence demonstrating a nexus between CAIR and HAMAS, a U.S. Department of State designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, then why is the Trump administration selecting CAIR to train U.S. CBP officers in October 2019?…
