By Javier ManjarresThe controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is again making waves with its new advertisement that offers support for citizens who have been “treated unfair.” The ad also asks citizens to contact them if “they have been contacted by the FBI or harrassed by law enforcement.”
The advertisment is vague enough to make anyone believe that the group is reaching out to people from all walks of life and religions. However, CAIR lets the cat out of the bag when they pose the question about individuals receiving a” hard time” for wearing a Hijab (Islamic headscarf).
CAIR has long been suspected of having ties to the radical Islamic group Muslim Brotherhood as well as its terrorist off-shoots Hamas and Hezbollah. CAIR’s claim to infamy came was when it named as unindicted co-conspirators by prosecutors in the Texas Federal case against the Holy Land Foundation. To this day, CAIR officials continue to deny that the group has ties to Hamas or any other terrorist group.
On July 27, 2004, a federal grand jury in Dallas, Texas, returned a 42-count indictment against the Holy Land Foundation. Charges included: conspiracy, providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, tax evasion, and money laundering. The indictment alleged that the Holy Land Foundation provided more than $12.4 million to individuals and organizations linked to Hamas from 1995 to 2001, when their asset were frozen. The indictment also named specific officers of the Holy Land Foundation: President Shukri Abu Baker; Chairman Ghassan Elashi; and Executive Director Haitham Maghawri, and four others: Mohammad el-Mezain, Akram Mishal, Mufid Abdulqader, and Abdulraham Odeh. Five of the seven were arrested. Maghawri and Mishal have not been found, and are considered fugitives. (Source-Wikipedia)
