CAIRing for Terrorist Groups

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has a long terror-related history. The group was created in 1994 as a part of the Hamas infrastructure inside the United States. The group has had a number of representatives deported and/or convicted for terror-related activity. Even today, the group is named by the U.S. Justice Department in a federal Hamas fundraising trial.
As well, CAIR has had many of its leaders refuse to call certain terrorist organizations “terrorist organizations.” Some CAIR reps have even outright stated that these groups were not terrorist groups. One of these individuals is Omer Subhani. He is on record as denying that Hamas and Hezbollah are terrorist organizations. He has denounced me for suggesting the obvious reality that support for Hamas means support for terror:
“[Joe] Kaufman has his latest article posted on the front page of FrontPageMag… In that article he claims to expose CAIR’s true feelings about Hamas… [T]he obvious idiocy of Kaufman’s allegation is that if you say Hamas is not a terrorist organization then you’re some sort of terrorism sympathizer or supporter.” (Omer Subhani, Islam, Muslims, and America, “Kaufman’s Idiotic Assertions,” March 12, 2008)
Now, Subhani has made a disturbing declaration regarding the PLO and one of its former spokesmen – just another bullet point in the infamous CAIR chronicles. More from FrontPageMagazine
