On Saturday, February 24, 2018 — nearly 24 years after the founding of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) by activists associated with Hamas — CAIR-Georgia will host its second annual fundraising banquet. A seemingly benign American non-profit organization, CAIR-GA’s event theme is ‘Living Our Faith, Defending Your Freedom.’ It’s a catchy slogan, evoking an image of American liberty and justice. Yet, the banquet’s theme has little to do with reality. In truth, not much about CAIR has changed since it was founded; it continues to espouse radical ideologies and nurture the Islamist anti-Israel obsession.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pushing the Los Angeles mayor’s office to refuse funding from the federal government to implement a Countering Violent Extremism Program (CVE).
The program – which comes with a grant for $425,000 – was offered to Mayor Eric Garcetti from the Department of Homeland Security.
What could possibly be wrong with an anti-extremism program?
Terror ties and “hostility toward Israel” are directly relevant to a civil suit challenging the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) work with San Diego public schools, plaintiff’s attorneys argued in court papers filed Friday.
CAIR helped the San Diego Unified School District develop an anti-bullying program. But five local families and two community groups sued last spring, claiming the program elevated Muslim students above others. The school board agreed to stop working with CAIR in July, acknowledging that CAIR is a religious group and the partnership may cross the line on church-state separation.
The ligation continues, however, and the school board asked the court last month to strike references to CAIR’s anti-Israel positions and its connections to Hamas from the case, saying they were irrelevant.
On December 13 and 18, Islamist Watch contacted Afaf Nasher, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) New York branch to ask for comment on a video from the December 8 anti-Israel rally in Times Square. As multiple video clips show, protesters were caught screaming the popular Islamist chant, “Khaybar, Khaybar ya Yehud! Jaysh e Muhammad sa ya’ud!” (“Khaybar, Khaybar, O you Jews! The army of Muhammad is returning!”)
The phrase refers to a battle fought by Muhammad and his army against a tribe of Arabian Jews (in which the tribe was largely exterminated) and is now used to threaten modern Jews with a similar fate.
Islamist Watch published an article in the Daily Caller last month about a conference in Virginia organized by a group named Khatme Nubuwwat (KN), an international network dedicated to inciting violence and hatred against Ahmadiyya Muslims, a peaceful Islamic sect hated by Islamists. Conference speakers declared that Ahmadi Muslims are “infidels,” claimed America is a “land of infidels,” and glorified violent jihad.
KN does not, however, just organize conferences. It disseminates leaflets advocating that Ahmadis should be killed, organizes anti-Ahmadi riots in Pakistan, and was reportedly responsible for bringing blasphemy charges in Pakistan against Asia Bibi, a young woman who was subsequently sentenced to death.
Michael Wolfe, 37, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal mischief to a place of worship in a case considered a felony hate crime, said Todd Brown, spokesman for Florida’s 18th Judicial District, which includes Brevard and Seminole counties.
Ohio’s capital city has launched a defense fund for illegal immigrants facing deportation and thousands of taxpayer dollars will go to the local chapter of a terrorist front group that promotes itself as a Muslim civil rights organization. The pot of cash is known as Columbus Families Together Fund and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, will be among the recipients.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) “will always hold a very, very special place in my heart until the day I die,” declared Arsalan Iftikhar on April 1 at CAIR-Oklahoma’s annual awards banquet in Oklahoma City. The commentator’s affection for the Hamas-derived, Islamist CAIR has now landed him a position at Georgetown University’s fount of Islamist propaganda, the anti-“Islamophobia” Bridge Initiative.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has announced a plan to “dismantle white supremacy” which focuses very heavily on the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
CAIR released the plan, titled “9 Steps to Dismantle White Supremacy and Islamophobia,” earlier this week.
CAIR’s nine-step plan mentions CAIR no fewer than nine times.
Lawyers for parents suing the San Diego Unified School District (SCUSD) over the implementation of its Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)-backed anti-Islamophobia program have updated the complaint they filed in federal court last month. The updated filing adds focus on CAIR’s Hamas ties and its status as a religious organization, in addition to shining a greater spotlight on how the scheme violates California law.
This anti-Islamophobia program came about due to lobbying by CAIR, and was passed by the school board, according to the plaintiffs, with the aim of stopping anti-Muslim bullying. But the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) – the group filing the lawsuit – and plaintiff parents don’t buy into the rationale.
WASHINGTON – In the wake of Islamic-terror attack after Islamic-terror attack in Europe, and more recently a couple of attempts in the U.S., a former infiltrator of America’s leading Islamic organization reveals the frightening extent of the “civilizational jihad” America faces.
Chris Gaubatz, author of the book “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America,” made an appearance on Stand for Truth Radio with Susan Knowles June 20 to discuss the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which he investigated as an intern, posing as a convert to Islam.
Since he played that role, Gaubatz has valuable insider information on the conversion process, having learned all that he knows from actual Islamic sources
Few ideas induce more horror than the selling of human beings for sex against their will. But the slave markets of the Islamic State are not the only places on earth one can hear human trafficking rationalized. Numerous Islamist institutions in the West frequently provide platforms for speakers who defend this abominable practice by citing Islamic law. And for years they have worked to infiltrate the mainstream of philanthropy.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a news release last week touting an Air Force decision to review courses on prison radicalization taught by Patrick Dunleavy, an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) fellow.
“We welcome this review and hope it results in our military personnel receiving training based on balanced and accurate information, not on personal or political agendas,” said CAIR-Florida Communications Director Wilfredo A. Ruiz.
A new anti-bullying program approved by the San Diego school district is unconstitutional because it is solely about Muslim students, establishing them “as a privileged group within the school community,” a lawsuit filed in federal court Tuesday says.
The program is designed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is “intrinsically religious in nature, the lawsuit says. The program therefore violates the First Amendment’s Establishment clause.
The Pearson textbook came under fire in 2013 and again last month, drawing the attention of the local chapters of ACT for America and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. However, the school board ultimately decided Tuesday night to keep the textbook as is.
Aren’t the liberals against religion in schools?
