Skip to comments.CAIR director attended Hamas meeting

Despite a previous denial, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations which regards itself as the leading U.S. Muslims civil rights group participated in a three-day summit of members of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
The evidence surfaced at the trial of the Texas-based Islamic charity Holy Land Foundation and five of its former organizers, who are accused of supporting Hamas. Prosecutors named the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.
According to Steve Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism, FBI Special Agent Laura Burns testified Thursday that the "Nihad" listed in documents related to the 1993 meeting of Hamas members in Philadelphia was Nihad Awad.
CAIR is a spinoff of the defunct Islamic Association for Palestine, or IAP, launched by Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook and former university professor Sami al-Arian, who pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to provide services to Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Awad served as the IAP's public relations director.
Several CAIR staffers have been convicted on terrorism-related charges, and CAIR founder Omar Ahmad also an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case allegedly told a group of Muslims they are in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam's rule over the country.
In 2003, Awad was confronted about the Philadelphia meeting during a deposition for a civil rights lawsuit, the Investigative Project on Terrorism noted. Initially Awad said he didn't think he attended, but when pushed, he replied, "I don't remember."

Like so many other outfits, why do the M.S.M. give CAIR any credence?
A front for mooselimb trash.
I just don't understand why, despite all of CAIR members involvement and links to Islamic terrorism that the Government hasn't shut it down long ago.
CAIR has not been touched because there is a kinder-gentler President on their side. Bush is part of the Texas-Arab cabal that was formed in the nineteen seventies and included the Bentsen, Baker, Connelly, Hunt families and hundreds of lesser lights in the Houston region. They made friends with the Bin Laden, Bin Mahfouz, alAmoudi, Khashoggui, Pharaon rat pack. The CIA played footsie with Kamal Adham and then Prince Turki. The State Department kowtows to the Saudi and other Gulf “royal families.” Following 9/11, it was the Texas cabal that halted the in-depth investigation of a score of Saudi miscreants, including the Arabs noted above, and their banks. One of the biggest supporters of Islamic terrorists was the Kuwait Finance House, a Muslim Brother outfit, just as CAIR is, and it has never been touched. It is frightening just how much influence Saudi money and Saudi oil has in Washington. Don’t believe it? Just check the Saudi payoffs received by the Akin, Gump lawfirm in Washington, and Baker, Botts in Texas.
Why are they here ?
the msm keeps giving this muzzie terrorist front credibility...
this so-called non-profit...is a funding source for muzzie terrorism and should be investigated and then kicked to the curb!!!!
and not being pc...why should anyone give a fig what these muzzies say???
The FBI has since cleaned AlArian's clock.
Of course our own Senator, Keith Ellison accepted donations from Nihad. Funny, they all went to school together. There’s that Minnesota connection again. :(
Ellison attended the University of Minnesota, along with future CAIR heads Nihad Awad and Ibrahim Hooper, just prior to Awad and Hooper taking leadership positions with the Minnesota-based Bosnian Relief Committee. (Joe Kaufman, FrontPage Magazine, ‘A Night of Hamas Heroes,’ March 8, 2004) While at the university, Ellison became involved with the Nation of Islam (NOI), the organization led by notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. He kept this involvement in NOI for a period of ten years, participating in rallies, including the Million Man March hate fest; defending hate speech; and using such aliases as Keith Hakim, Keith X Ellison and Keith Ellison-Muhammad. (Scott Johnson, Power Line, ‘KEITH ELLISON FOR DUMMIES,’ September 30, 2006)
Amidst Ellison’s run for Minnesota’s 5th District Congressional seat, in 2006, he accepted tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions raised during CAIR-sponsored events, including secret CAIR fundraisers held out of state in Florida. As well, he accepted thousands of dollars in contributions from CAIR leaders themselves, including contributions from CAIR’s Executive Director Nihad Awad (Nehad Hammad) and CAIR’s Chairman Parvez Ahmed. (Federal Election Commission, ‘Individuals Who Gave To: ELLISON, KEITH MAURICE,’ November 2006 Congressional election)
Those small circles have been running in Minnesota for awhile now. Including the flying imams and even using the flight school pre 911. See my post 12.
“Like so many other outfits, why do the M.S.M. give CAIR any credence?”
Why does our government give CAIR credence?
Why does anyone or anything give cair a second thought?
