brief, Whitehead won a sweet
victory, while CAIR suffered a humiliating defeat ...In anticipation of
a court hearing
regarding discovery, Rubinstein filed papers in the Virginia Circuit
Court in October 2005 and December 2005 alleging extensive links
between CAIR’s organizers and control group with Hamas and other
foreign and domestic Islamists. Among other things, these papers
alleged: CAIR’s lineage goes back to a key Hamas leader (Musa Abu
Marzook), and that CAIR has long been connected with, and “exploited”
the 9/11 attacks to raise
money for the Holy Land Foundation, a Hamas front group. CAIR is
heavily supported, financially and otherwise, by suspect Saudi and
UAE-based individuals and groups. CAIR states that the U.S. judicial
system has been “kidnapped by Israeli
interests,”... In March 2006, shortly before a scheduled court hearing
to decide on several of Whitehead’s requests (compelling CAIR to
disclose its financial data, to answer questions about its
relationship with Hamas and other Islamists, and to provide information
regarding its leaders’ activities and intentions), the case was settled
and then dismissed with prejudice by
stipulation (meaning, the
plaintiff has agreed to forever drop all of the claims
that were in, or could have been in, the complaint) ...
CAIR’s own analysis of Whitehead’s initial statements, they “impute the
commission of a criminal offense” by CAIR,
in that these suggest CAIR
“actively supports” terrorists, and advocates the “overthrow” of the
U.S. Constitution in favor of Islamic law. It bears noting that none of
words were found to be false, they were not retracted, and they remain

office confirmed to
NEWSWEEK that she has withdrawn a “certificate of accomplishment” to
Sacramento activist Basim Elkarra after learning that he serves as an
official with the Council on American -Islamic Relations (CAIR). After
directing her staff to look into CAIR, Boxer “expressed concern” about
some past statements and actions by the group, as well as assertions by
some law enforcement officials that it “gives aid to international
terrorist groups,” ... Boxer tells NEWSWEEK she never saw the letter to
CAIR signed in her name or was even aware of the award to Elkarra
before it was sent out. "I feel terrible about this," she says. "We
just made a mistake. I was not in the loop. That was an automatic
signature [on the letter]." But Boxer stands by her decision to
withdraw the award and to distance herself from CAIR, saying she was
influenced by previous critical statements about CAIR made by her
Democratic colleagues Sens. Richard Durbin of Illinois and Charles
Schumer of New York.
"To praise an organization because they haven't been indicted is like
somebody saying, 'I'm not a crook,'” Boxer says. “I'm going to take a
lot of hits for this. But I'm just doing what I think is right." ...
CAIR has formally asked for a meeting with Boxer and demanded that she
withdraw the action - which one top CAIR official said smacks of
“Islamophobia.” ... Boxer was unaware of the certificate to Elkarra
that had been given in her name by staff members in her California
office and only learned of it “when she came across a story on
Horowitz’s blog,” ... After review by her staff, Boxer was
concerned by claims that CAIR had refused to condemn Hamas and
Hizbullah and recognize those groups as terrorist organizations,” ... [Joe]
Kaufman, for his part, couldn’t be more pleased. “We are proud of Sen.
Boxer,” he says. “By taking back this award, the senator has shown that
she is conscious of the extreme problems that Basim Elkarra and his
group, CAIR, pose to the public.” ...
"CAIR consistently deceives the American
public, law enforcement and politicians, portraying itself as a
moderate and independent organization,"..."But its own records,
statements and other documents tell a different story which the public
deserves to know." ...There is one non-profit, Anti-CAIR, founded by
Andrew Whitehead, which devotes all of its energies to exposing what it
considers CAIR's shady practices. It was Anti-CAIR that publicized the
fact that a link on CAIR's website soliciting donations for New York

Committee." Then, when the group petitioned to remove its name from
that list, prosecutors said such relief "will not prevent its
conspiratorial involvement with HLF, and others affiliated with Hamas,
from becoming a matter of public record." Now, in a federal court filing
from December, federal prosecutors have described CAIR as "having
conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support
terrorists." The government also stated that "proof that the
conspirators used deception to conceal from the American public their
connections to terrorists was introduced" in the Dallas Holy
Land Foundation trial last year and the Chicago trial of the Hamas men
in 2006 ... Federal prosecutors used their response to the brief to
court of the both organizations' questionable stand on the issue of
terrorism itself ...

Support of CAIR Garners New Scrutiny
When it was
formed, CAIR was helped out by $5,000 from HLF ... "This is an outright
lie," Awad said. "Our organization did not
receive any seed money from HLFRD. CAIR raises its own funds and we
challenge Mr. Emerson to provide even a shred of evidence to support
his ridiculous claim." Emerson did better than that. Through Epstein,
he provided the
Senate committee with HLF's original seed money to CAIR, drawn on a
Saudi Arabian bank account ... Awad's testimony wasn't the first
time CAIR denied the HLF support.
Earlier in 2003, during a deposition for a civil case, CAIR co-founder
and then-chairman Omar Ahmad was asked, "Did they [HLF] give you any
money to help start CAIR?" He responded unequivocally, "No." ...
Awad then attempted to minimize the significance of the CAIR/HLF
money trail: "HLF was not indicted for any criminal activity at the
time of its donation in 1994 and its assets were frozen by the Justice
Department seven years later in December 2001." He added that HLF's
"relatively small donation" came "seven years before any wrongdoing was
attributed to Holy Land Foundation." Transcripts from government
surveillance tapes make clear, however,
that CAIR's founders were fully aware of the support HLF
for Hamas well before accepting the money...
Jihad: Islamist 'Lawfare'
Stifling Western Free Speech On Radical Islam
of the major proponents of Islamist lawfare in the US is the
Washington-based Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an
unindicted co-conspirator in a terror financing case and self-described
representative of the American Muslim population...
in the West met with enthusiastic approval from anti-extremist,
moderate Muslims, but with predictable condemnation from the
"Wahhabi lobby" represented by the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) and its allies ... The radical Muslim response to the
NYPD report predictably employed the
pretexts of alleged "profiling" and "inappropriate" criteria. But the
report did not embody "profiling;" rather, it was an
work based on open source documents and serious expertise, and utilized
a case study approach drawing on terrorism incidents
abroad ... But for Islamists in America,
charges of "profiling" and
"inappropriate" methods are the preferred reply to critical
of almost all significant matters.... According to the radicals, they
themselves represent the Muslim
mainstream, their practices and beliefs are harmless,
questioning of them amounts to persecution. Unfortunately for the
extremists, many Muslims disagree with them,
considering them a deviant
phenomenon, their habits and views distorted, and their worldwide quest
for domination worthy of decided opposition ... Her
involvement in CAIR's counter-attack on the
otherwise ... Debbie Almontaser appears to be a classic "stealth
Islamist," and KGIA
looks like just the kind of radicalizing effort it was said to be by
its critics ... Shia Muslim community leaders in New York
have expressed their
opposition to the campaign and their support for the police, and have
refused to sign the letter ...

boycott lying down, Savage is
fighting back, in court. Represented by his lawyer, Daniel A. Horowitz,
is suing CAIR primarily for copyright infringement. According to the
text of the
lawsuit, which is posted at Savage's Web site, CAIR "misappropriated"
his work by posting the four-minute segment in question at its Web site
it in outreach and fundraising efforts. Taking it a step further, the
accuses CAIR of misrepresenting itself as a "civil rights
organization" and of "advocating a specific political agenda that is
directly opposed to the existence of a free society." While the
infringement charges against CAIR may or may not pan
out, the broader implications could end up holding the most weight ...
Revere Warns Nation About Islamofascist Threat
118 members — both Democrats and Republicans. The threat we face from
radical Islamofascists is not a partisan issue ... The radical
Islamofascists have told us
how they intend to infiltrate all areas of our society and use the
freedoms that are guaranteed under our Constitution to eventually
Islamize our country, eliminate our Constitution and enact Shariah law
... I know of some Muslim nongovernmental
organizations that are doing good things, such as the Islamic Supreme
Council of America, the American Islamic Congress and the American
Islamic Forum for Democracy. However, groups such as Council on
(CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and others have a
proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned
or deported from the U.S. Just to name a few: Ghassan Elashi, a
founding board member of CAIR, is serving 80 months in prison; Randall
"Ismail" Royer, the communications director for CAIR, is serving 20
years in prison; and Bassam Khafagi, the director of CAIR's community
relations, has been arrested and deported. There was a lot of evidence
presented at the recent Holy Land
Foundation trial, which exposed CAIR, ISNA and others as front groups
for the Muslim Brotherhood ...We need to shed the veil of political
correctness that shields government officials from speaking out against
Daniel Pipes? Enough, Already!
What is it about Mr. Pipes that makes Mr. Ibrahim Hooper (CAIR
Spokesperson) swoon at the
very mention of his name? What is so frightening about Mr. Pipes?
Has he advocated violence and supported terrorist murders like Mr.
Ahmad and Mr. Hooper? Does Mr. Pipes advocate blowing up
buses, like Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Hooper have? Has Mr. Pipes fought
the FBI to stop them from investigating Islamist terrorists, like Mr.
Ahmad and Mr. Hooper have? Has Mr. Pipes blamed every single
offense against Jews (no matter how big or small) on “Anti-Jewish”
bigotry by Americans as Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Hooper have for
Muslims?...Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Hooper are self-serving prostitutes to the
Anti-American, Anti-Freedom cult that is Wahabbi Islam. For
either of these “men” to self-appoint themselves as leaders of the
Islamic faith is a grave insult to peaceful followers of Islam....
Director Placed at HAMAS Meeting
On the telephone, three men discussed
who should be invited to join
them in a meeting to discuss what to do next. The call included Omar
Ahmad (CAIR’s chairman emeritus), who at the time served at President
of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), Shukri Abu Baker,
President of the Holy Land Foundation and one of the defendants now on
trial, and Abdelhaleem al-Ashqar, the Executive Director of a
HAMAS-linked charity known as the Al Aqsa Educational Fund. They
discussed inviting people from the “Union,” a code reference to the
IAP. They mentioned “Akram,” “Abdul Rahman” and “Nihad.” In 1993, Nihad
Awad was the spokesman and public relations director for the IAP. During that same telephone
the men on the telephone call referred to Nihad's work in "media."
Shukri Abu Bakr mentioned "a full article in Dallas Morning News...and
every few lines: Mr. Nihad said this and that...." The Dallas
News did publish an article that day. It ran under the headline
"Dallas' Mideast Observers Warn of Conflict Ahead." It extensively
quoted "Nihad Awad, spokesman for the Dallas-based Islamic Association
of Palestine." ...
