Calling Out the CAIRorists

Don’t miss Joel Mowbray’s article in today’s Washington Times, CAIR’s duplicitous ways. CAIR is a pro-Hamas, anti-Israel organization masquerading as a civil rights group; however, as Scott at powerline puts it, “CAIR is an offshoot of a Hamas front group that appears not to have outgrown its roots.” Mowbray’s article explains it well.

CAIR has mastered the art of appearing to oppose terrorism, while at the same time leading the charge against those who seek to thwart it. …

During Israel’s war last summer with Hezbollah terrorists, CAIR was firmly on the side of the fundamentalist Islamic propagandists. The organization issued at least eight condemnations of America and the Jewish state — but not one against Hezbollah.

Never in its history has CAIR specifically condemned Hamas or Hezbollah by name. …

Refusing to recognize the right of the Jewish state to exist is in keeping with the group’s roots. Founded in 1994, CAIR was spun off from the Islamic Association of Palestine. Whereas IAP was widely seen as a Hamas front, CAIR was designed to be a kinder and gentler “civil rights” organization. It was a smart move. A federal civil-court judge in 2005 found CAIR’s founding organization liable for providing material support to Hamas on the basis of “strong evidence that IAP was supporting Hamas.”
