DOJ: CAIR conspired to support terrorists

To see the extent to which CAIR will lie in order to avoid the consequences of their hate and terror, one only need look at the “Urban Legends” section of the CAIR website.

Of course, many of these “urban legends” CAIR attempts to debunk are easily verifiable facts.

For instance, the first lie in that document says:

Disinformation: Some law enforcement officials have asserted that CAIR aids terrorists.

Of the hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officials in the United States, only two former FBI members, Steven Pomerantz and Oliver “Buck” Revell, have ever made such allegations against CAIR. It is important to note that these allegations, originally made in the mid-1990s when both men no longer served as FBI officials, remain nothing more than the opinions of men who stand to gain financially by smearing Muslims.

But in fact, the Department of Justice, which is the highest level of law enforcement in the United States, said that very thing in a legal brief just this past December (for more see, “For the Record: Government Reminds Court of CAIR/MAS Ties to Terrorists”):

Moreover, since its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists. (DOJ Brief No. 07-4778, USA v. Benkahla, Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, p. 58)

Here’s the image of that section of the DOJ legal brief:

It is true that Steve Pomerantz, former FBI chief of counterterrorism, has said the following:

Any objective assessment of the material presented above leads to the conclusion that CAIR, its leaders, and its activities, effectively give aid to international terrorist groups. Unfortunately, CAIR is but one of a new generation of new groups in the United States that hide under a veneer of “civil rights” or “academic” status but in fact are tethered to a platform that support terrorism. The degree to which these groups are able to deceive the American public and intimidate writers and counter-terrorist officials will be a significant ingredient in whether this country will be rendered more vulnerable to terrorism in future years. (“Counterterrorism in a Free Society,” The Journal of Counterterrorism & Security International 5:1, Spring 1998, p. 26)

Here we see yet another example of CAIR lying to hide the ugly truth.

In summary: CAIR = LIAR

Thank you.
