CAIR, MAS Join with State Department to Protest UAE Terror Designation

State Department officials met with leaders of the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to discuss the group’s inclusion on list of terror groups issued by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a CAIR news release issued Monday said.

The UAE listed CAIR and the Muslim American Society (MAS) among 80 Islamist groups worldwide it linked to terror last month. The State Department questioned the designation, saying it wanted “more information from the Emirati authorities” justifying the designation, with a spokesman adding that “the U.S. does not consider them to be terrorist organizations.”

According to CAIR’s news release, the State Department renewed its pledge to try to get the two Islamist groups removed from the UAE terror list.

    What does CAIR have to hide?

    Perhaps the State Department could take a hint, instead of a knee-jerk attempt to interfere in another country’s internal affairs.

    And those weasels in CAIR-Canada thought they could hide by getting rid of Sheema Khan and then change their name . So much for CAIR pounding their chest and going to the media to tell them they are Suing Harper for his comments about denying members of CAIR a spot on a Middle east trip because of CAIR’s links to funding Hamas.

    I want to know why the CBC has yet to call back Sheem Khan and tell them why she never told them about CAIR’s links to Terrorism since she was more than willing to get the CBC air-time to spew fabricated hate-crimes and bogus vandalism to Mosques as to back their islamophobia claims.
    Sheema Khan is on record defending the Toronto-18 as innocent and victims of the post-9/11 anti-muslim bigotry and islamophobia.

    State Dept Head John Kerry had been siding with evil since at least the early 70’s.
    No news there.
