Terror-Tied CAIR has 20 Year Veteran of Missouri Police Force Fired

Breaking: CAIR, the Largest Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas Front Group in America, is Running a Money Laundering Operation

7

Our law firm, the American Freedom Law Center, has been engaged in a long and drawn out lawsuit against the Hamas front group, CAIR. Hamas-CAIR has been running a global criminal money
laundering operation out of the nation’s capital. "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."

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.

What has been revealed in discovery is devastating. I address this issue in my column today at WND, but this is the money….:

CAIR — the Largest Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas Front Group in America — is Running a Money Laundering Operation AFLC,  by admin

The
largest Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group in America is the Council
on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). 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 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).

While CAIR bills itself as the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights
organization, it has been named by the U.S. Department of Justice in
federal litigation 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 engage in legal services. 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 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. That 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 a massive criminal money laundering organization run out
of CAIR’s 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 who 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 a one million dollar grant from a Saudi Arabian bank. At
one point, CAIR even sought one million 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 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.

The result is that CAIR now receives millions of dollars from foreign
Islamist sources every year, 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. These small U.S. donations are then 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 a Gulf Arab would be transferring these kinds
of sums to a holding company that has no employees or operations.

An interesting, but as yet 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? This, at a time when the IRS was
improperly holding up conservative and pro-Israel groups’ applications
for the same 501(c)(3) status causes even heightened concerns.

CAIR’s criminal financial operations raise a whole host of questions
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.
