FBI Document Depicting Relationship Between CAIR and Terror Group Hamas Published

An FBI chart has surfaced depicting connections between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Hamas, which is designated by the State Department as a terror group. Obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the chart shows CAIR falling under the umbrella of the jihadi outfit.

The IPT also obtained groundbreaking new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents that trail CAIR back to its roots as a Hamas-related group.

In 2007, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, a Hamas financing case that would result in the FBI ceasing its working relationship with CAIR. The HLF trial was the largest terror-financing case in American history. In 2008, during a retrial of the HLF case, an FBI Special Agent labeled CAIR as “a front group for Hamas” during her trial testimony. In 2010, a federal judge reiterated that his court had “ample evidence” that CAIR was involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.” CAIR, which relies upon millions of dollars in Saudi cash, was recently listed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a terrorist organization.

The group, which fashions itself as a civil rights voice for American Muslims, was founded by members of the Palestine Committee (PALCOM), an organization “established to support Hamas,” according to the chart. Nihad Awad, currently CAIR’s executive director, was previously an official at PALCOM, reports.

Good to see the word getting out. CAIR has always been a terrorist front group. It advocates and does PR not just for the Hamas terrorist group, but for Islamists and terrorists in general. It is disgraceful that most mainstream media cite and quote CAIR as if it were a civil rights group, rather than a terrorist advocacy outfit. One interesting example of CAIR general activities happened recently, when Ahmed "the bomb boy" brought a faux bomb to school to create a bomb scare. CAIR was immediately on the scene (and may have been involved in pre-planning) claiming that the brief detention of the boy was "anti-Islam."

There are good PEOPLE still in the FBI against the NWO agenda and the Hegelian Dialectic. Obama would like to blame every bad thing that happens in the USA on Law Abiding White Conservative Christians. The funny thing is they're not calling for a Revolution against him. They rely on God and Jesus Christ. Who's more powerful than Nukes, Bombs, Guns & Ammo. So Barry Obama is just paranoid. He knows he won't leave office. So he acts like a true Commie and calls others extremists who Murder etc. When there is no proof. Thank you FBI for doing the right thing regardless of what the WH wants! CAIR is under the protection of the Hard Left because they hate the USA as much as the SOROS Anti-Liberty AstroTurf. There is good people left in the world! Fight for whats right LEOs and FBI!

Very good article and time CAIR was exposed for what it actually is. Congrads to the GOOD PEOPLE at FBI that worked on this. For the Left you are the problem in this country and have been for many years with many issues. If the Left hates this country they should leave, and seek refuge somewhere in the Middle East or North Korea, or any other leftist, socialist, dictatorship country.
