U.S. ARMY LTC ALAN WEST TO HEADLINE SATURDAY NIGHT AAH RALLY AGAINST CAIR
RALLY WILL CRITICIZE BROWARD OFFICIALS FOR THEIR EMBRACE OF CAIR
(Coral Springs, FL) On Saturday, March 1st, Americans Against Hate (AAH), in coordination with the Terror Free America Coalition, will be holding a demonstration against the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the group's usage of a government owned facility, the Broward County Convention Center, where CAIR will be holding its annual banquet/fundraiser.
CAIR was recently named an "unindicted co-conspirator" for a Dallas terrorism trial that dealt with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. As well, the group was labeled by the Justice Department a front for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The featured speaker at CAIR's event will be Siraj Wahhaj, an "unindicted co-conspirator" of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, an act that left six innocent people dead.
AAH Chairman and founder of CAIR Watch, Joe Kaufman, questioned, "How could the local government of Broward County allow a group with numerous ties to terrorists usage of a government owned facility, especially to do fundraising in?"
Broward County has a history of support for CAIR. In 2003, the Broward County School Board produced a video that stared the Executive Director of CAIR-Florida, Altaf Ali. And in 2005, the Broward County Commission allowed CAIR use of its Main Library in Fort Lauderdale to run a six part "Islamic Culture" program.
Headlining the rally against CAIR will be United States Army Ret. Lieutenant Colonel Alan West, a modern day American hero who, while serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan, saved fellow troops' lives.
Also speaking will be the President of the Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC), Sam Kharoba. Kharoba is a software developer that trains law enforcement and intelligence personnel on issues concerning terrorism.
