I’ve been in the crosshairs of the Council on American – Islamic Relations (CAIR) before. They accused me of slandering their god. In my opinion, they attempt to come off as a rational, bridge-building organization, but instead CAIR is an activist PR operation for radical Islam.
Here’s the story:
A senior leader for the Council on American-Islamic Relations stated in a tweet Sunday that Israel should be “terminated.”
“Iran’s regime calling Israel a ‘cancerous tumor’ is like the pot calling the kettle black. All the people of that region will be better off once both murderous regimes are terminated,” wrote Hussam Ayloush.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reports says the tweet might lead one to assume Ayloush, the head of the Los Angeles chapter of CAIR, has an equal disdain for the Islamic Republic of Iran and Israel. But that’s not necessarily the case.
While Ayloush would like to see regime change in Iran, he has “a history of describing Israel in ways that echo Iranian rhetoric calling for its destruction,” IPT said Monday.
Ayloush is also a delegate to the California Democratic Party.
The FBI blacklisted CAIR from outreach programs after the Islamic organization was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund Hamas, a State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization.
In the 2007 trial, the FBI presented evidence CAIR was founded as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group. More than a dozen CAIR leaders have been charged or convicted of terrorism-related crimes. And the group also was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.
