CAIR Showboats At Manzanar
May 8, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR, the Saudi funded Hamas mouthpiece, designated as a co-conspirator in America's largest terror prosecution, US v Holy Land Foundation (HLF)] "...continues down the path of stealth jihad, following a plan devised by the Muslim Brotherhood - in this instance marching with Japanese American's to the Southern California internment camp created by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Manzanar to suggest that Islamophobia is rampant and that American Muslims face discrimination on a daily basis, we must consider how such stunts impact the groups credibility as a self-proclaimed civil rights organization.
First as an aside, considering that fewer people were killed at Pearl Harbor [the event that set the internment process into motion] than during the 9/11 attacks by Muslim fanatics, the fact that there has been nothing comparable to Roosevelt's actions stands as conclusive evidence of the lack of exactly what CAIR sought to infer from their meaningless participation in the Manzanar event.
In a larger sense, however, it might prove instructive to review a little sourced document presented into evidence at the HLF trial on September 4, 2007 by U.S.prosecutor James T. Jacks. Specifically the governments filing regarded CAIR's unsuccessful effort to remove its name from the co-conspirator list, as a means of assessing the group's agendized posturing and overall veracity.
We find of particularly noteworthiness the manner in which the Department of Justice clearly links CAIR to both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The full text of the document is available at GOVERNMENT'S MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION TO COUNCIL ON AMERICAN -ISLAMIC RELATIONS' MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE A BRIEF AMICUS CURIAE INSTANTER AND AMICUS BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF THE UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATORS' FIRST AND FIFTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS
The fact that HLF trial judge Joe Fish quickly and correctly made the decision not to remove CAIR from the governments list of unindicted co-conspirators is testament to the degree to which CAIR - "America's largest Islamic civil liberties group" - is in fact an apologist for terror and so closely linked to both the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas that its pronouncements have zero moral weight.
Consider just two items, one the fact that both Nihad Awad [CAIR's Exec. Dir.] and Omar Ahmad [Emeritus Chair of CAIR's Board of Directors] were both present at the seminal 1994 "Philadelphia conference" a Hamas strategizing event taking place in a Philadelphia hotel, wiretapped by the feds under a FISA warrant and two, that Ahmad mediated an argument between Abdelhaleem Ashqar [now serving a 135 month sentence for rackaterring in support of Hamas] and HLF over fundraising by Hamas founder Sheik Jamil Hamami, and CAIR's negligible separation from the Palestinian terror group, created by the Muslim Brotherhood, becomes apparent.
Since its inception in 1994, CAIR has barely managed to stay one step ahead of justice, that oversight might well soon be remedied. http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=cair5.8.08%2Ehtm
