Hamas Front Group, CAIR, Challenges FBI
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), regularly cited by the media as an authority on American Muslim issues, is challenging the FBI’s response in the death of a Chechen immigrant—Ibragim Todashev, 27, who was being questioned by the FBI in relation to the Boston Marathon bombing. According to the FBI, the suspect attacked an agent during the interrogation on May 22 and was shot and killed based on the “imminent threat posed by the individual.” (Ref. http://www.newsmax.com/
Counter-terrorism expert and former FBI agent, John Guandolo, the host ofwww.understandingthethreat.com
, is not surprised stating, "Of course the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) would step up to help a jihadi - CAIR is a Hamas entity. It was founded by two Hamas leaders in the United States, Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad, whom the FBI identified as leaders of the Palestine Committee (Hamas in the U.S.) back in 1993.”
The federal prosecutors in the US vs Holy Land Foundation trial (Dallas 2008) stated: “The U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations.”
The Federal Judge in that case – the largest Hamas case ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history - refused to remove CAIR from the unindicted co-conspirator list stating, “The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), and with Hamas.”
History indicates that many in liberal circles appeased both Hitler and Stalin. Perhaps this same strange and inexplicable policy, one that contradicts American values, is manifested in the actions of Attorney General Eric Holder. According to Guandolo, “The real question should be ‘Why did Attorney General Holder direct the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Dallas and the FBI to cease all efforts to indict CAIR and its leaders after the HLF trial?’”
Schedule an interview with John Guandolo and allow him to give your audience an understanding of the nature of the Global Islamic threat the West faces—and what must be done to counter it.
