The U.S. Census Bureau announced its plan to join forces with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization internationally recognized as an Islamic terrorist organization, to ensure Muslim participation in the 2020 Census.
CAIR’s partnership with the bureau will consist of coordination with Islamic centers nationwide to inform American Muslims about the 2020 Census in order to accurately assess the ethnicity, ancestry and racial diversity of the Muslim community, the group explained in a press release.
“CAIR is proud to partner with the U.S. Census Bureau to ensure American Muslims are fairly and accurately counted in the 2020 Census,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Full participation in the census ensures that American Muslims will be better represented in Congress, and that their communities receive an equal share in state and federal programs.”
The bureau’s partnership with CAIR will also work to serve as a means to protect Muslim communities “from becoming targets of fraud or scams,” CAIR states.
The U.S. census, conducted once every ten years, is used to determine congressional apportionment — the number of representatives each state has in the 435-member U.S. House of Representatives and federal funding is allocated to state, local and federal agencies.
Along with being classified as a terrorist organization in the United Arab Emirates in 2014, CAIR has been labeled as a Muslim Brotherhood entity by the United States Justice Department and was found by a federal judge, the U.S. Attorney Generals office, and the Fifth Circuit Court of appeals as having direct ties to Hamas. On July 1, 2009, U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis upheld CAIR’s designation as a co-conspirator, saying there was “ample evidence” linking CAIR to Hamas.
Hamas has also been classified as a designated terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department and is listed as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding trial in 2008, which is the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history. In the Covenant of Hamas, which outlines the goals and motive of Hamas and its members, it states that one of its main goals in the destruction of Israel.
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
