Pompeo’s co-sponsorship of a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization when he was a congressman no doubt was on the mind of Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, when he slammed the current CIA director as having “a long record of anti-Muslim bigotry.”
“Edward Ahmed Mitchell, Director of CAIR, said his team and colleagues gathered videos, audio and course plans from Bores’ classes offered to community groups over the years, and printed a report, containing quotes they attributed to Bores. Mitchell said he presented the report to POST and to the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office.”
A player with CAIR has reached out to the media with comment about this week’s terror bombing of the New York City subway system — to criticize police for their too-quick investigation that named a radicalized Muslim as the suspect.
“The Muslim Brotherhood recognizes the American president’s move to put America and all its interests in all countries of the world under the same political control of the interests of the Zionist entity, and it will become an enemy state of the Arab world and Islamic components international and institutional, political and popular.”
Philadelphia news outlets are heralded the appointment of Salima Suswell, “first Muslim woman to serve on the Pennsylvania Commission for Women.” All well and good. But Salima Suswell also serves as an executive committee member for terror-tied Council of American Islamic Relations, unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history.
In a call that’s become familiar in the last 10 years, a group of organizations including the ACLU of Oregon, Portland Copwatch, the National Lawyers’ Guild, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Oregon, launched a campaign today to convince the city to cease participation in the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force.
An online petition with over 500 signatures outlines the concerns some have with Awad, including the fact that he and the organization he created were named as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terror-financing case. Five Holy Land Foundation executives were found guilty of funneling millions of dollars to the terror group Hamas.
