CAIR Report – Lies about "Legislating Fear"

Editor’s Note – CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has produced a report on its enemies; those who are exposing them as the propagandist apologists for the actions many Muslims commit under the guise of a religion that calls itself the Religion of Peace.

The report is contradiction unto itself as it calls for action against those they purport to expose as haters, as racists, as Islamophobes, yet it hides its ties to terror organizations and the growing number of Jihadist training camps and virulent anti-American rhetoric in its Mosques. CAIR is now in a suit with the American Freedom Law Center who revealed the following:

“The money laundering scheme was discovered in the course of legal discovery in unrelated federal litigation arising out of allegations by five of CAIR’s former clients that CAIR defrauded them by failing to provide the legal services they had been promised. (See here for the latest update in that case.”

These haters are calling their enemies that expose them – haters! All while they allegedly launder money in Washington D.C. meant for Hamas. In fact, they are so disingenuous, read what they did regarding their IRS status over these allegations:eric-holder-cair-holy-land-foundation-hamas-connection

To avoid reporting these millions of dollars from the dubious Islamist sources and to avoid registering as an agent for a foreign sovereign as required by federal law, CAIR created a separate company called CAIR-Foundation, Inc., to serve as an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization. CAIR itself quit filing any federal tax returns from 2008-2010 and allowed the IRS to withdraw its status as a 501(c)(4), converting itself to a regular for-profit corporation. CAIR also stopped all of its operations and became simply a holding company, transferring, at least on the books, all of its employees and equipment to CAIR Foundation.

They also fail to point out the massive infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into our institutions and governmental agencies, all the way to the White House – all at the same time that the terror attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi is still ongoing. Remember, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood are terrorist organizations. In fact, CAIR was also an unindicted co-conspirator in the now famous Holy Land Foundation trial, yet our Attorney General was invited to speak at one of their functions in 2009 and did so despite a ban and suspension of them as an appropriate liaison partner with the FBI .

Their hands are covered in deceit and blood and the global Caliphate is their goal. Taqiya is the Islamic art of condoned lying – always listen close to their words for they are never truthful to the infidel. The biggest problem they have is that the people the call out as Islamophobes are correct and factual, a tough pill to swallow.

One of the “Inner Core” they identify has offered a response posted below. As a close friend to many on their list, we are saddened they did not include SUA, MG Vallely and our staff because we too agree completely with these friends.

The problem is Islam, why, because those who follow its fundamentals closely are the most violent and they wish the end of the non-Muslim world. They try to hide this through political correctness angles but we will not be silent. They even attack Dr. Zhudi Jasser, a moderate Muslim who speaks truth to their taqiyah!

Hamas-linked CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of Washington, DC

By Robert Spencer – Jihad Watch

It has been a bad week for the Islamic supremacist thugs of Hamas-linked CAIR: no sooner do they issue their wildly inaccurate “Islamophobia” report than Islamic jihadists commit major acts of jihad mass murder in Nigeria, Iraq, and Kenya, thereby giving the lie to the claim that people have negative views of Islam because of an alleged network of allegedly well-heeled alleged “Islamophobes,” rather than because of the actions of violent and supremacist Muslims avowedly acting the name of Islam. Then in the wake of the Kenya jihad murders, it came out that Hamas-linked CAIR was accused of interfering with the investigation into the Somali jihad group Al Shabaab’s recruitment activities in the U.S. — and American jihadis thus recruited are among the jihad murderers.

And now it turns out that they’re laundering money, too. Hamas-linked CAIR top dogs Nihad Awad and Ibrahim Hooper can still enjoy those Obama Justice Department soirees, but perhaps sanity will prevail and they will not be enjoying such access much longer.unindicteddoesntmeannotguilty-vi

“Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Legitimacy Undermined by its Criminal Money Laundering Scheme,” from the American Freedom Law Center, September 24:

Washington, D.C. (September 24, 2013) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which bills itself as “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization,” released a so-called report last week entitled, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States,” which purports to identify dozens of organizations “dedicated to promoting anti-Islam prejudice in America.” CAIR’s report garnered significant media attention, including a full-length article posted in The Washington Post.In the report, CAIR highlighted the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), a national, nonprofit Judeo-Christian law firm, and its Co-Founders and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise, as being part of the “inner core” of the “Islamophobia network.”

In response to CAIR’s allegations, Yerushalmi commented: “For some time now, ‘anti-hate’ groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and CAIR have been successful in promoting the notion that they are legitimate organizations that objectively highlight individuals and groups that promote ‘hate’ in America. In reality, these organizations use their compatriots in the mainstream media to advance their agendas through misinformation and duplicity.While the Southern Poverty Law Center is basically a self-serving fundraising machine masquerading as a civil rights organization, CAIR has a proven track record of dangerously waging what the Muslim Brotherhood calls ‘civilizational jihad’ to destroy the West from within. Indeed, CAIR is the largest Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group in America.”

After three years of litigation in federal court in Washington, D.C., AFLC has uncovered facts demonstrating that CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of the nation’s capitol. The scheme was discovered in the course of legal discovery in two separate federal lawsuits arising out of allegations by five of CAIR’s former clients that CAIR defrauded them by failing to provide the legal services they had been promised.

While CAIR bills itself as the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organization, it has been named by the U.S. Department of Justice as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial, the nation’s largest terrorism finance prosecution to date, resulting in convictions in 2008 for all five leaders of the terrorist financing ring operating as the Holy Land Foundation Muslim charity. Prison sentences ranged from 20 years to 65 years.

As brought out in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial, CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad were participants in the conspiracy, although not formally charged. These two men formed CAIR in 1994 in an effort to create a front organization to further the Muslim Brotherhood goals in this country. But, like many criminal fronts, CAIR itself turns out to be a criminal organization.

Part of CAIR’s criminal operations included representing itself to be a public interest law firm created to protect the civil rights of Muslim Americans. In reality, however, CAIR has unlawfully employed non-lawyers to provide legal representation to Muslim Americans. In one case, CAIR employed a man by the name of Morris Days as its “Resident Attorney” who claimed to represent hundreds of CAIR clients in various state and federal litigation matters. In reality, CAIR and its “Resident Attorney” were not filing any actual lawsuits on behalf of these clients. Moreover, after the fraud was discovered, CAIR attempted to cover-up the whole affair with threats of litigation against the victims and finally with payoffs to other potential witnesses.

AFLC now represents five of these former CAIR “clients” who had sought out CAIR’s legal services for various matters, including workplace discrimination, immigration, and family law matters. Three of these former CAIR clients are Muslims, including two African Americans and a Pakistani.

Specifically, in 2010, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi filed suit in federal court in Washington, D.C., against CAIR on behalf of these CAIR victims, alleging fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. After several years of legal discovery, which required Yerushalmi to go to court on numerous occasions to compel CAIR to turn over documents, which in turn led the court to warn CAIR’s in-house counsel, Nadhira Al-Khalili, that her conduct was unprofessional and would result in the court filing a formal Bar complaint against her if it did not cease, this case is now awaiting the court’s ruling on the extent of CAIR’s liability.

In the midst of gathering evidence to prove the plaintiffs’ case, AFLC discovered evidence of a criminal money laundering organization run out of CAIR’s Washington D.C. offices. The scheme was created in 2005 by CAIR, which at the time was an IRS-approved 501(c)(4) lobbying organization. CAIR’s problem was that as a registered lobbying group it had to report to the IRS the source of funds received over $5,000. The specific problem was that CAIR was receiving millions of dollars from oil-rich Gulf Arabs, the same sources that were also financing the Muslim Brotherhood to prepare for the “Arab Spring” and even Al Qaeda operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. CAIR’s expensive headquarters in the nation’s capitol was financed with millions of dollars from Gulf sovereign sources. At one point, CAIR even sought millions of dollars from Libya’s now dead strong man, Moamar Ghaddafi, in an effort to distribute to Muslim Americans Qurans with an Islamist translation and commentary together with Muslim Brotherhood literature.

To avoid reporting these millions of dollars from the dubious Islamist sources and to avoid registering as an agent for foreign sovereigns as required by federal law, CAIR created a separate company called CAIR-Foundation, Inc., to serve as an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization. CAIR itself stopped filing any federal tax returns from 2008-2010 and allowed the IRS to withdraw its status as a 501(c)(4), converting itself to a regular for-profit corporation. CAIR also ceased all of its operations and became simply a holding company, transferring, at least on the books, all of its employees and equipment to CAIR Foundation.

The result is that CAIR, the for-profit, now receives millions of dollars from foreign Islamist sources every year, acting in effect as a foreign agent for these foreign governments, but only has to report the amounts of its income and not its sources. CAIR then transfers these monies to CAIR Foundation as loans or grants, and CAIR Foundation then only has to report its source as CAIR. The result is a criminal money laundering operation that allows CAIR to funnel millions of dollars from dubious foreign sources into a lobbying group fronting as a charity without the legally required disclosure of sources.

Indeed, CAIR is so brazen about its operation that it maintains only one website for CAIR, which does not even mention CAIR Foundation. In this way, CAIR receives smaller donations from presumably Muslim Americans made payable to “CAIR,” thus allowing CAIR to decide which “CAIR” will get the money. The small U.S. donations are deposited into CAIR Foundation’s bank account, which in turn reports these small innocuous donations to the IRS. The big money transfers from the Gulf, however, are conveniently deposited in the CAIR bank account, which does not require any disclosure of the source of the funds. This presents no problem to the Gulf Islamist terror financiers because they are obviously not looking for a U.S. tax deduction. What CAIR does not explain of course is why sovereign Gulf nations, like the UAE and Saudi Arabia, would be transferring these kinds of sums to a holding company that has no employees or operations.

Yerushalmi commented: “An interesting but unanswered question is why the IRS would have registered CAIR Foundation as a legitimate 501(c)(3) organization in 2005? An even more intriguing question is why, in 2012, the IRS re-registered CAIR Foundation as a legitimate 501(c)(3) charitable organization, particularly after it had lost its status because it failed to file the organization’s federal tax reports (on IRS form 990) for three consecutive years and in light of the obvious illegal use of CAIR as a money laundering front? And, all of this, at a time when the IRS was improperly holding up conservative and pro-Israel groups’ applications for the same 501(c)(3) status. At the very least this should give rise to heightened concerns.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, concluded: “CAIR’s criminal financial operations raise a whole host of questions that the IRS and the Department of Justice should be investigating. The obvious question to be asked now is whether the IRS can get past its politically motivated witch-hunt of the Tea Party and pro-Israel groups and whether the Department of Justice will finally prosecute CAIR and its founders for their direct and indirect involvement in the material support of terrorism.”

Quashed Story Revealed – CAIR member, DNC delegate, Qaradawi friend

SUA Staff – The following story was captured by SUA staff, but within a day, the link was locked on the forum at the UT San Diego web site seen here.

However, we have the content here. The story that was posted (see below) was about the investigations of Muslim activities in Orange County California and its surrounds.

In particular, it shows how adamant the FBI and others are that there is nothing to see.

Hussam Ayloush, quoted below, is a loud critic of such investigations but he is also a member of CAIR, the un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation Case.

The investigation of Craig Monteilh was a ‘very narrow’ investigation, unofficial sources say.

However, one person in particular, Hussam Ayloush, quoted below, is a loud critic of such investigations but he is also a member of CAIR, the un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation Case in Dallas in 2010 where four people were convicted of ‘terrorism financing’.

Why is Ayloush important? Well it seems that he is now a Democratic National Committee Delegate in the State of California and he spouts his hatred of Jews calling them a Nazi state (Also, see here.) and is pro-Palestinian.

We also cannot overlook the fact that one of Ayloush’s closet friends is none other than the prominent Muslim Brotherhood theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Qaradawi says he supports martyrdom operations (suicide bombings).

In summary, hear Ayloush’s own words in an interview about his quest and success in altering terminology of Islamic terrorism from our National Security lexicon.

FBI monitored members of O.C. mosques at gyms, alleged informant says

Here is the content captured:

Sal Hernandez, director of the FBI’s Los Angeles office, declined comment on the matter Monday. Another law enforcement source, however, confirmed that the surveillance occurred, but emphasized that it was a narrowly focused operation targeting people whom the informant had already implicated in alleged crimes.

The informant is Craig Monteilh, who said he posed as a Muslim convert at the request of the FBI to gather intelligence that might aid anti-terrorism investigators.

Monteilh, a muscular man with a background as a personal trainer, said he was instructed to lure mosque members to work out with him at local gyms. FBI agents, he said, later would obtain security camera footage from the gyms and ask him to identify the people on the tapes and to provide additional information about them. He said he was told that the agents then conducted background checks on the men, looking for anything that could be used to pressure them to become informants.

Disclosures of the FBI’s tactics have angered some leaders in the Muslim community in Orange County who saw it as a betrayal of their efforts to assist law enforcement after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The issue has reverberated nationwide.

Last week, a coalition of the nation’s largest Muslim organizations, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Islamic Society of North America, issued a statement demanding that the Obama administration address FBI actions, including what they described as the “infiltration of mosques,” the use of “agent provocateurs to trap unsuspecting Muslim youth” and the “deliberate vilification” of the council.

Hussam Ayloush, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Anaheim, said he viewed the most recent disclosure as a form of religious profiling that “reflects a deeply rooted mind-set that was promoted by the Bush Administration.” “I’m not surprised,” he said. “It confirms our worst fears.”

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said, “While the FBI does not comment on investigative techniques, it’s absurd to suggest that FBI agents are randomly targeting Middle Eastern men or any other ethnic group for investigation.”

Monteilh, 46, is a twice convicted felon who says he was recruited by the FBI in 2006 to go undercover in the Islamic Center of Irvine, where he said he pretended to be Farouk Al-Aziz, a Syrian-French American searching for his Islamic roots. He says he surreptitiously recorded conversations with members of several mosques and provided the recordings to the FBI.

Though FBI officials have declined to discuss Monteilh’s alleged role in any investigation, a law enforcement source confirmed that he worked as an informant.

Monteilh (whose name is pronounced Mahn-Tay) said the FBI stopped using him as an informant in 2007 when a supervisor questioned his credibility. He has since filed a legal claim against the bureau, accusing officials of reneging on promises to pay him $100,000 and place him in a witness protection program.

In several recent interviews with The Times, the 6-foot-2, 260-pound Monteilh said he was encouraged to invite members of several mosques to join him for workouts at various fitness centers in Irvine, Tustin, Laguna Niguel and Costa Mesa. Monteilh said he would routinely lead between eight and 15 men in a regimen of weightlifting and cardiovascular exercise. He said a car key operating as an electronic recording device was capturing whatever he and the men talked about.

About a month after the workouts began, Monteilh said one his “handlers” at the FBI started showing him photos that he was told were still shots taken by video surveillance cameras at the gyms. He said the agent would typically show him between 75 and 100 photos per meeting, which he said were usually at various Starbucks in Orange County.

Monteilh identified the agent by name, but his identity is being withheld by The Times at the request of an FBI official who cited his involvement in covert activities unrelated to the case that Monteilh said he was involved in.

Monteilh said the agent would ask him to write down the name of the person in each photo, the mosque they attend, their nationality and the names of their associates. He estimated that he identified several hundred men, the majority of them between the ages of 18 and 50. Many were professionals, including doctors and lawyers, he said. Most were students.

Monteilh said he broached the topic of racial profiling, but was rebuffed.

“White little old ladies aren’t blowing up buildings and planes,” Monteilh quoted one agent as saying. “We’re looking at these people based on the fact that there’s a terrorist threat in the Islamic community . . . there’s no other way.”

He said the project was working so well that his handlers were given clearance to use him to open a gym that would cater to men in the Islamic community. It was supposed to have a prayer room next to the workout area and the entire place was going to be wired for audio and video surveillance, Monteilh said. He said the project was scrapped after his cover was blown.

A spokesman for one of the fitness centers where the activities allegedly occurred said the company had no knowledge of the FBI probe. Representatives from other gyms did not respond to inquiries from The Times.

Monteilh’s role as a government informant seemed to be supported by the testimony of an FBI agent in February.

The agent, Thomas J. Ropel III, was testifying at a bail hearing in the case of Ahmadullah Sais Niazi, who is charged with perjury, naturalization fraud and making a false statement to a federal agency for, among other things, not disclosing that his brother-in-law is Osama bin Laden’s alleged security coordinator.

Ropel told the judge in the case that Niazi had been secretly recorded by an informant as he threatened to blow up abandoned buildings. The agent did not name Monteilh but testified that the informant was the same man Muslims had reported to the FBI as an extremist two years earlier.

Monteilh was reported to the FBI in June 2007 after members of the Islamic Center of Irvine alleged that he was promoting terrorist plots and trying to recruit others to join him.Monteilh denies being a terrorist and said anything he said or did at the mosque was in his capacity as an informant for the FBI. He said he was given permission by authorities to engage in terrorist rhetoric, planning and “pretty much anything short of an actual attack” as part of his assignment.
