The craziness …..
No, this is not the Onion. The New York chapter of the Hamas-tied
Council on American-Islamic Relations is submitting testimony on “hate
crimes.” The hate group announced in a press release last week: “On
Friday, the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR-NY) submitted written testimony for a public hearing on
that state’s hate crimes law hosted by ranking member of the Senate
Committee on Investigations and Government Operations, State Sen. Brad
Hamas-CAIR is submitting testimony on hate crimes? This is Shariah in
action. Why aren’t the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) or
Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) testifying? Why aren’t Former
Muslims United (FMU) or any other victims of jihadists testifying? I
have a file three inches thick of “hate” that has been directed at me:
vile abuse and death threats. Does Sen. Brad Hoylman intend to
What could Hamas-CAIR possibly have told Hoylman about hate crimes?
CAIR-NY is especially bad about telling Muslims not to cooperate with
law enforcement, and protesting against the New York Police Department’s
counter-terror programs. Former Hamas-CAIR-NY operative Cyrus
McGoldrick has even several times written on Twitter and Facebook that
“snitches get stitches.” Referring to an “NYPD informant” whose identity
was revealed, he wrote: “Don’t worry, we’ll blast him later.”
The 2011 FBI hate crime statistics
show that among hate crimes directed against people of a particular
religion, by far the most are not against Muslims, but against Jews. And
as a classification of crime, religiously motivated hate crimes are
actually very rare in this country, and against Muslims they’re almost
non-existent. So why are we allowing a Hamas-tied group to manufacture a
victim narrative about Muslims?
And when the 9/11 bombers, Fort Hood jihadist or the Boston Marathon
jihad bombers engage in what amounts to thousands of hate crimes in an
instant by Muslims in the name of Islam against infidels, how – if at
all – are these categorized?
“Anti-Muslim hate crime” is at a record low. Anti-Jewish hate crime
is at a record high – due in large part to Islamic Jew-hatred. How is
Sen. Hoylman addressing that? Does Hoylman even know who Hamas-CAIR is?
It is dangerous for Hoylman to give this terror-tied group the
imprimatur of legitimacy without knowing who and what they are. I have
spent years studying the evidence demonstrating that CAIR operates as a
front group for Hamas and its affiliated organizations. I’ve consulted
with FBI agents, CIA agents, local law enforcement officers and
attorneys who specialize in national security law. All confirm that CAIR
was begun as a Hamas front group to carry out the Muslim Brotherhood’s
In 2008, the U.S. government filed a memorandum in opposition to the
request from two of the groups linked to the HLF, the Islamic Society of
North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), that
the “unindicted co-conspirator” designation they received during the HLF
trial be removed (it wasn’t). The memorandum is a useful and
illuminating summary of what some of the most prominent Islamic groups
in the U.S. have been involved with.
It noted that some of HLF’s top officials, including Shukri Abu
Baker, its secretary and chief executive officer, Mohammed El-Mezain,
its director of endowments, and Ghassan Elashi, its chairman of the
board, were charged with “providing material support to a foreign
terrorist organization,” as well as with “engaging in prohibited
financial transactions with a Specially Designated Global Terrorist,
money laundering, filing false tax returns, and several conspiracy
charges, including: conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign
terrorist organization … conspiracy to provide funds, goods and services
to Specially Designated Global Terrorist … and conspiracy to commit
