On Tuesday, the Geller Report broke the story that the San Diego City Council was planning to honor the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations. Here is our initial report.
Fight back now. Make your voice heard. Here are the people you should contact and let them know you are unhappy with San Diego honoring a Hamas front.

Imagine the uproar if the San Diego City Council honored AFDI and brought me in to talk about the jihad threat. There would be petitions, protests, boycotts, riots. But honoring a Muslim Brotherhood Hamas group? No problem. What is most disturbing about this is not just the strategy of Muslim Brotherhood groups (not just CAIR, but also ISNA, MSA, et al) for stealth infiltration and overthrow of the US government, but the success they have achieved — the level of access, infiltration and influence in the highest level of government and media. The San Diego City Council proves that.
The San Diego City Council members no doubt have no idea that during the course of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, the trial of what was once the largest Islamic charity in the U.S., that was since shut down for funneling money to Hamas, many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. The most significant of these was “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” employing US Muslim Brotherhood ….
groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … Allah’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
These groups (CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, et al) were identified in the US government’s case against Islamic terror funding “charities” as “participants in a network of U.S.-based organizations affiliated with the designated foreign terrorist organization.”
According to the GOVERNMENT’S MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION TO PETITIONERS ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICAN ISLAMIC TRUST’S MOTION FOR EQUITABLE RELIEF Page 12
At the end of the document, the memorandum lists those Muslim Brotherhood organizations that – if they all worked together – could help accomplish this grand objective. These organizations include ISNA, NAIT, the Occupied Land Fund (OLF ) (the former name of the Holy Land Foundation), the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), and others. Id.
ISNA and NAIT, in fact, shared more with HLF than just a parent organization. They were intimately connected with the HLF and its assigned task of providing financial support to HAMAS. Shortly after HAMAS was founded in 1987, as an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood, Govt. Exh. 21-61, the International Muslim Brotherhood ordered the Muslim Brotherhood chapters throughout the world to create Palestine Committees, whose job it was to support HAMAS with “media, money and men.” Govt. Exh. 3-15.
The U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations. Govt. Exh. 3-78 (listing IAP, HLF, UASR and CAIR as part of the Palestine Committee, and stating that there is “[n]o doubt America is the ideal location to train the necessary resources to support the Movement worldwide . . .”). The mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support HAMAS, and the HLF’s particular role was to raise money to support HAMAS’ organizations inside the Palestinian territories. Govt. Exh. 3- 17 (objective of the Palestine Committee is to support HAMAS).
No sane city council would think Hamas-CAIR is a group that should be honored. If anything, San Diego should be condemning Hamas-CAIR for opposing counterterror efforts, and honoring AFDI for standing up for freedom and individual rights. The fact that such an event is inconceivable is a measure of how far we have fallen, and how the Left works to corrode and destroy everything that is good. Now subversive organizations are honored, and patriotic ones are hounded and vilified.’
Now Jeff Schwilk, the founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders, has sent me the latest details of what is happening, with some valuable links:
This will be coming to other American cities soon. CAIR is on a political Jihad.
Link for the petition to the San Diego City Council to repeal their CAIR Day proclamation.
The petition was started yesterday by a citizen who was very involved in getting the San Diego School Board to back off their very close relationship with CAIR a few months ago when they wanted to teach Sharia Law in all San Diego schools.
The video of the vote and council meeting has just now posted on the city’s website. The vote was unanimous: 7-0, with two Republicans, Sherman and Cate, joining the five Marxist Dems on the council to approve CAIR Day in San Diego. Two Republicans, Zapf and Cate, were absent and didn’t vote.
Fast forward the video. The meeting starts at the 10:25 point on the video. The vote is soon after at 11:58. A “Mr. Brooks” speaks in great detail about CAIR and their Islamic terrorist connections (after the item was approved) at 21:35. Apparently the “rules” in San Diego don’t allow the public to weigh in on a resolution before they vote on it. Kim Jong Un would be jealous of San Diego “politics”….
Here is the proclamation making Nov. 4th CAIR – San Diego Day.
I didn’t realize that Muslims in San Diego needed “criminal rights.” What the heck are those? Are there that many criminal and terrorist Muslims in San Diego??
The answer to that is probably yes.
