Congressional Group Comes to CAIR’s Defense

Earlier this week, NewsRealblog reported that four Republican lawmakers, led by Rep. Sue Myrick of North Carolina (the others being Trent Franks of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and John Shadegg of Arizona), were asking Congressional Sergeant-at-Arms Wilson Livingood to investigate whether the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. non-profit Muslim activist group associated with Islamist terrorist organizations such as Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and al-Qaeda, has placed their operatives as “interns” on the staffs of members of targeted national security-related Congressional committees, including the Intelligence, Judiciary and Homeland Security Committees.

Myrick’s group is right to be concerned.

Since the September 11 attacks, 15 CAIR officials including its Executive Director, Nihad Awad and its founding Chairman, Omar Ahmad, have been either convicted or investigated on terror charges, or have fled the country. In 2008, CAIR was named as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism case in Dallas, Texas, which led to guilty verdicts on 108 charges based on funneling more than $12 million to Hamas.

Although they claim to be a benign group with no aim other than to protect the rights of all Muslim-Americans, CAIR’s leaders have gone on record as to what their real intentions are.

Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s Communications Director, wants to be perfectly clear:

Ibrahim Hooper: I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.

CAIR’s Executive Director goes further:

Nihad Awad: Muslims in America are in the best position to show Islam and to show action and to show vision, not only for a Muslim school how it should be run, but for the entire society — how it should be run. Who better can lead America than Muslims?

CAIR’s Founding Chairman, goes further still:

Omar Ahmad: Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America.

Where, when does it end?

GMAC, the troubled consumer finance company, is seeking billions of dollars in additional federal aid, a move that would be its third taxpayer bailout and could give the government a majority stake in the company, according to people briefed on the situation.
