We Call on the U.S. Government to Conduct an Immediate and Thorough Investigation into the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in the Interest of National Security
We are GREATLY CONCERNED about past and ongoing activities by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and look to our U.S. Government to immediately commence a thorough investigation into the organization, including its leadership, affiliates and activities.
We REMIND our elected officials that CAIR has documented ties to the terrorist organization Hamas and that CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial (a trial that ended with guilty verdicts on 108 counts of funneling $12 million to Hamas).
We REMIND our elected officials that CAIR has individuals either under its current or former employ, or as its affiliates, who have direct ties to terrorism both in the U.S. and abroad: such as Nihad Awad, CAIR’s current national executive director, who participated in a meeting about how to disguise payments to Hamas terrorists as charity; Abdurahman Alamoudi, a CAIR director who is now serving 23 years in federal prison for plotting terrorism; and Omar M. Ahmad, CAIR’s founder and former chairman, who was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land case, to name but a few examples.
We are deeply CONCERNED at recent reports that CAIR has worked to undermine U.S. law enforcement by tipping off suspected terrorists under investigation, and by directing Muslim-Americans to not cooperate with the F.B.I.
We are DISMAYED that, despite these facts, CAIR continues to be the primary group consulted by both media and government agencies with regard to the Muslim-American community. In the name of true transparency, therefore, we REQUEST that Congress and the Administration support the following investigative actions:
We REMIND our elected officials that their primary responsibility to our nation’s citizens is to PROTECT AND DEFEND, and we therefore URGE them to take immediate action on this matter.
