A Bad CAIR Day...

Things continue to go badly for the unindicted co-conspirators in the Hamas funding trial in Dallas, as the FBI fingered the organization as part of the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee.

Agent Lara Burns also told the jury in the Holy Land Foundation trial that CAIR was listed as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, right alongside the terorrist fron Holy Land Foundation and Hamas fronts the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), and the United Association for Studies and Research. Not only that, but Agent Burns testified that CAIR received money from the Holy Land Foundation, something CAIR chairman Nihad Awad denied when testifying in front of Congress back in September of 2003.

It also came out that CAIR co-founders Omar Ahmed and Nihad Awad were also listed as individual members the Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in America.

Awad and Ahmed are further connected to the Palestine Committee based on their positions as president and public relations director of the Hamas front the IAP,CAIR's forerunner that now been closed down because of a multi-million dollar civil judgment in a trial involving the murder of an American teenager by Hamas terrorists.

The FBI testimony is designed to help the government prove its case that the Hamas fundraising network in the US was established through the Palestine Committee..especially since the leader of the committee was a known Hamas terrorist, Musa Abu Marzook, a current Hamas official.

CAIR was essentially created in 1995 as a new front group after the terrorist affiliation of the other organizations became known.

Needless to say, the dinosaur media is ignoring this almost completely.

Hattip to the good people at the Counterterrorism Steve Emerson's Jihad Incorporated: A Guide to Militant Islam in the US sometime for a real eye opener.
