    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been tied to HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. CAIR has also been named a terrorist organization itself by US ally the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to the fact that it is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the granddaddy of all modern Sunni Jihadist organizations. Now, CAIR is conducting “outreach” to conservative groups and a major Tea Party organization in the state of Georgia. In view of this development, we thought it important to detail CAIR’s disturbing history, members, officers and ties ahead of more of its “outreach” efforts in...

    Concerns relating to litigation about religious discrimination have some American employers taking steps to make the workplace more Muslim-friendly, Bloomberg News reports. Anything from establishing prayer rooms to having office parties sans alcohol are just some of the things U.S. companies are doing out of deference for their Muslim employees. “The atmosphere is so toxic now that even having constitutionally protected religious accommodation in the workplace can somehow be controversial,” Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), told Bloomberg. CAIR filed complaints on behalf of Muslims whose jobs were terminated last January at a meat-packing plant...

In letters sent to local and state agencies, CAIR questioned Mauro’s scheduled appearance at the California Association of Tactical Officers’ “Symposium on Islamic Terrorism” to be held August 24-25 in San Diego.

Groups like CAIR aid and abet terrorism and should be prosecuted. The Department of Justice is sitting on a “mountain of evidence” against CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood groups. Obama scuttled those prosecutions. Trump will right that wrong.

    How did this woman ever get a security clearance given her very clear ties to a radical off-shoot of Islam?” That’s what Roger Stone wants to know about Hillary Clinton‘s right-hand woman, Huma Abedin. Abedin happens to be a Muslim and she also happens to be married to disgraced politician Anthony Weiner. Yesterday, on Breitbart News Daily, he explained that his theory goes further. When asked about how Abedin and Weiner don’t appear to have a “traditional marriage,” he responded that while she was publicly humiliated by Weiner’s sexting scandals, she stayed for “the power and the money.” He continued:...

    Colorado’s labor department has ruled that more than 100 Muslim workers fired from a Cargill meatpacking plant are eligible for unemployment benefits because a company cannot force workers to choose between their religion and their jobs. The workers filed for unemployment payments after they were fired in December by Cargill Meat Solutions, amid a dispute over whether the Muslim employees could take prayer breaks during their shifts. Cargill challenged the claims, but the company withdrew its appeals this summer after losing 20 cases, officials with the state Department of Labor said. ... the payments could cost Colorado’s unemployment fund nearly...

    Islamists pose a particular security risk to our U.S. government. They want to slowly introduce Sharia law into our system of government and take away our most cherished freedoms. Islamists such as Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) not only strive to take away our fundamental freedoms, but they oftentimes also lobby against our government’s ability to crackdown on Islamic terrorism. Islamists operate so effectively in U.S. politics because of politicians that enable them. Bill and Hillary Clinton are those type of politicians – having a political past mired with Islamist ties. One of those...

    ‪This is being done at the behest of Hamas-linked CAIR. Is Assemblymember Bill Quirk aware that Hamas-linked CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department?

CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) A California chapter distributed a poster...

CAIR put out a press release Sunday urging Muslim women activists to take to Twitter between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. EDT Monday to tweet "about who they are and how they speak out," using the hashtag #CanYouHearUsNow.

According to a federal complaint, 25-year-old Sami Osmakac recorded an eight-minute video shortly before his arrest explaining why he wanted to bring terror to his “victims’ hearts” in the Tampa Bay area. Osmakac is a naturalized American citizen born in Kosovo, then part of the former Yugoslavia in eastern Europe.

CAIR said Tuesday that could be a possible indicator of increased political involvement due to anti-Muslim rhetoric by “public figures.” It did not name names, but presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has come under fire for some campaign statements relating to Islam – especially his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. because of terrorism concerns.

The Orlando shooter's wife allegedly knew of his plan and accompanied him to buy ammunition, yet did nothing to stop him. Then there was Tashfeen Malik, the obedient jihadist Bonnie Parker, who helped her husband Syed Farook gun down fourteen in San Bernardino. Days before the killing in Orlando, the Husseini Islamic Center in Sanford, Florida, hosted Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar. The Islamic scholar had previously preached to a crowd...

    Central Florida Muslims gave their blood. They gave their money. And they resolved to stand united in mourning with members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community shaken by Sunday's mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando. "There is never, ever any justification for such unacceptable crimes against humanity, crimes against God, crimes against our country," said Hassan Shibly, executive director of the Florida branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations...

    We know Orlando jihad terrorist Omar Mateen worked for a DHS contractor – the people supposed to guard our airports, federal buildings, and nuclear facilities. We know that in 2013 and 2014, his co-workers reported to his employer that he was acting weird, and he was reported to the FBI and watched for a while. Why wasn't he fired? Probably because the employer had a diversity requirement imposed by the DHS and because CAIR, et al. were sure to finance a lawsuit against them even if DHS didn't hold them to strict account for such a firing. Of course the...

    The Louisiana House of Representatives just passed and adopted a resolution (HR170) calling on law enforcement and government agencies in Louisiana to avoid and suspend contacts and outreach activities with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). The vote was 63-18. Congratulations to Rep. Barry Ivey, the resolution's author and to Rep. Mike Johnson Rep. Valarie Hodges and Rep. Cameron Henry for their work in support of the resolution, the first of its kind in America...but certainly not the last.
  • Hamas-linked CAIR says US troops should not be honored on Memorial Day

    No surprise. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce 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. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) A California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and a Florida chapter distributed pamphlets with...

FBI wiretaps in 1993 reveal that CAIR...

    In 2008, the trial and conviction of five leaders of an Islamic charity for funding the terrorist group Hamas exposed the vast Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S. and its stated aim, according to FBI evidence, to “destroy Western Civilization from within.” Along with the convictions, the Department of Justice named 300 unindicted co-conspirators in the plot, which included many of the nation’s most prominent Muslim Brotherhood-related organizations. Among them were the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust. Nevertheless, just one year later, Department of Homeland Security officer Philip B....

    A mob ransacked and torched seven Christian homes in a province south of the Egyptian capital, Cairo, after rumors spread that a Christian man had an affair with a Muslim woman, according to a statement by the local Orthodox Coptic church. Released late Wednesday, it said that during the May 20 attack, the mother of the Christian man, who had fled the village, was publicly stripped of her clothes by the mob to humiliate her.

    Whether Islam will eventually be reformed is an open question. The topic is much discussed by Muslims, a few of whom favor reformation and more of whom oppose it. The issue is important for America, and indeed the free world in general. There is little that non-Muslims can do to assist a reformation beyond recognizing the substantial differences between moderate and radical (mainstream) Muslims, supporting the former and purging the latter. Please don't conflate the cops with the killers.

    An important resolution in the Louisiana House of Representatives has been authored by Rep. Barry Ivey. Actually, there are two identical resolutions, one a House resolution and one a House Concurrent Resolution, which would also go over to the Senate. These resolutions call on law enforcement agencies and government entities in the state of Louisiana to to avoid and suspend contacts and outreach activities with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). As the resolution language notes, CAIR has been identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group and an un-indicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history...

    The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with "fairness and respect."
