Most Americans are in the dark on CAIR. Robert Spencer in Arab Winter Comes to America rips off the shroud of CAIR, exposing this Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood group for what it is. In Arab Winter, Spencer explains, “Ghassan Elashi, the founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, is now in prison for jihad activity. In 2009, he was sentenced to sixty-five years in prison for funneling over $12 million in charitable contributions to Hamas while serving as head of Holy Land Foundation.”
CAIR is an acronym for Council on American-Islamic Relations. Spencer writes, “CAIR remains widely respected. Nearly everyone, particularly in Washington, assumes that CAIR is exactly what it says it is: a Muslim civil rights organization, working for the rights of Muslims in the United States and deeply loyal to Constitutional principles and freedoms.” This is despite, as Spencer writes, “its connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, the terror convictions of several former officials, and its virtually unanimous opposition to counterterror laws investigations, and other initiatives.”
Spencer continues, “Just as influential as CAIR in Washington is the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which was founded in 1981 by operatives from the Muslim Students Association, still another Brotherhood group in the United States.”
The Muslim Brotherhood? In his chapter titled “Not Just in Egypt Anymore (the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States),” Robert Spencer explains their stated goal: “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” Their methods: “insinuating themselves into centers of power in the United States and Europe as ‘moderate’ Muslims, who can exert quiet influence in the direction of eventually replacing Western culture and the U.S. Constitution with an Islamic caliphate and sharia law.”
Robert Spencer plays hardball. Among the measures Mr. Spencer would implement: “Tell the truth about Islamic jihad and supremacism. Enforce existing laws (Section 2385 of the federal criminal code). Reclassify Muslim organizations. End Muslim immigration into the United States. Reconfigure our international alliances so that no state that oppresses women or non-Muslims in accord with sharia provisions gets a penny of American aid or is considered a U.S. ally.”
