Ohio Treasurer and Senate Candidate Josh Mandel: CAIR Is a Front Group for Terrorist Organizations

The Trump Effect: people finally feel free to speak their minds about subjects long obscured by dozens of layers of Political Correctness fog.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Mandel posted a link to an article that makes the accusation.


The article states:

Since its founding in 1993, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has presented itself publicly as a benign Muslim American "civil rights organization." From that time to this, however, the United States government has known that CAIR actually is an entity founded by the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestinian franchise: Hamas, a group officially designated since 1994 as a terrorist organization.

Mandel is sticking by the claim, despite criticism that the report he cites is from an organization that has questionable origins itself.

The report is from the ‘Center for Security Policy.’ It has been called an anti-Muslim conspiracy group. The Southern Poverty Law Center claims the group is known for accusations that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated all levels of government.

But Mandel doesn't only have Gaffney's group as a source on this. There's also the small matter of the US Government's naming of CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation conspiracy to provide material aid to the terrorist group Hamas.

CAIR is, in fact, among the more than 300 unindicted co-conspirators of the Holy Land Foundation named by the government in the Holy Land Foundation prosecution. The trial has already produced evidentiary bombshells detonating along a path leading to CAIR. It has introduced evidence placing CAIR executive director Nihad Awad at the 1993 Philadelphia meeting of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. FBI agent Lara Burns has testified that CAIR was listed as a member of the Palestine Committee.

The evidence introduced at trial is conspicuously missing from the New York Times; the Times isn't covering the trial. I found reports of the evidence introduced at trial posted on the invaluable Counterterrorism Blog by Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism. Although the Times has not stirred itself to cover the trial, it did cover last week’s filing of a motion by CAIR to strike the government's pretrial list of unindicted co-conspirators. Neil MacFarquhar’s story dutifully recited CAIR's charge that the government's naming of unindicted co-conspirators constituted "the demonization of all things Muslim." Such stuff is the grist for CAIR's daily mill.

Meanwhile, highly-trained Hamas commandos and bombmakers are traveling to Egypt to join up with ISIS.
