Part of SIOA's humanitarian activism (look for a monumental announcement to be made at our SIOA/SIOE First Transatlantic Counter Jihad Conference on July 2nd) takes many forms. Billboards, bus ads, rallies, protests and legislation -- and now something we have been working on for months: SIOA undercover.
As part of our defense of freedom activities, we have SIOA operatives going undercover to expose the work of Muslim Brotherhood groups in the US. Here is our first in a series of undercover reports:
SIOA Exclusive Insider Report: CAIR's Anti-Cop Conference
Last week I was made aware of an upcoming meeting of the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) taking place this week in Brooklyn, NY. The meeting was "jointly" held this past Thursday by the Muslim Brotherhood group CAIR, Community Board 5, and Officer Marcus Johnson of the 75th Precinct. CAIR operative and Jew-hating lawyer Lamis Deek led the way.
CAIR-NY Presents: A "Know Your Rights" workshop with Lamis Deek, Esq.
Thursday, June 23 · 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Arnold and Marie Schwartz Community Center
127 Pennsylvania Avenue Brooklyn, NY
CAIR- NY wants you to KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
We at the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) are proud to announce our new "Know Your Rights" initiative, bringing the legal expertise of CAIR-NY to organizations and communities all across New York!
CAIR-NY has long offered these workshops to schools, mosques and communities that requested them, but we find it more and more important to reach broader audiences with this crucial information that can protect us, our families and our communities. CAIR and Muslims across America strongly support law enforcement and the protection of our national security, as well as the protection of the civil rights of individuals. Our "Know Your Rights" workshop is geared towards people of all ages, races, religions and backgrounds, helping us better know our rights when dealing with law enforcement agencies, including special sections on air travel and immigration. If time allows, there may also be a special discussion of the new report by NYU School of Law's Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, "Targeted and Entrapped: Manufacturing the 'Homegrown Threat' in the United States," which exposes the mechanisms by which some members of our communities have been drawn into the sights of terrorism investigations.
Lamis J. Deek, is an attorney and human rights advocate specializing in defending Arab & Muslim community members, activists and organizers against governmental attack. Lamis is a long time member of Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, the Arab Muslim American Federation, and the National Lawyers Guild. She is co-founder of the US Palestine Community Network.Knowing that Deek and her cronies at Hamas-tied CAIR are working to eliminate and destroy Western civilization from within, I felt it was my duty as a member of Stop Islamization of America to attend the meeting.
This event is a service of CAIR-NY and is provided FREE OF CHARGE
When I arrived at the conference site, I immediately noticed a table covered with literature from Hamas-tied CAIR, the New York Civil Liberties Union, and the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, NYU School of Law. Two booklets authored by the school were titled "Targeted and Entrapped, Manufacturing the ‘Homegrown Threat’ in the United States," and "Under the Radar, Muslims Deported, Detained, and Denied on Unsubstantiated Terrorism Allegations."
Setting up the event and working the table were several young women who wore "CAIR volunteer" badges. CAIR’s dhimmis made sure everyone signed in, and even asked for our addresses. From there I took a seat and waited for the meeting to begin. Several minutes later, I heard some commotion coming from behind me. When I turned around, I saw a bunch of Muslim men setting up a prayer rug, while figuring out which direction Mecca was. Before they dropped to the floor, they asked everyone if we would like to join them. It was men in the front with the women behind them. The non-Muslim CAIR volunteers did not pray, but one of them did say she tried it in the past.
After they prayed, there was a delay of at least fifteen minutes before the actual meeting started. The reason for that was that Lamis Deek was late. Finally the countess arrived, and the meeting was kicked off by Officer Johnson of the 75th Precinct. Johnson seemed like a genuinely nice guy, and was there to offer safety tips to the local community. Some of these were not to walk down dark streets by yourself, or over stuff your wallet, as potential thieves will see the bulge and think it is money. After he spoke, there was a Q & A. When that was done, the Hamas-tied CAIR anti-cop fest began!
Deek didn't waste anytime in disrespecting Officer Johnson, who was just a few seats away from her. She went right into a tirade against the police and the FBI, complaining that Muslims were being targeted and entrapped. She was clearly trying to make the authority figures who risk their lives to prevent Islamic terrorism into the bad guys. She kept pointing out to the audience how scary it was to have the police knock at your door, as if it were a 9-point earthquake taking place! Office Johnson just said quietly, while listening intently. Deek's tone got so bad that it prompted a Community Board 5 representative, Manuel Burgos, to raise his hand in the middle of her speech. She tried to put him off until the Q & A, but he would not have it! He explained to her who he was and strongly said he "didn't like the tone" that was taking place. Burgos said that the Community Board and the local precinct work hand in hand together. Deek was silenced; she looked at her cronies next to her, who didn't know what to say either! In the end Burgos’s statement backfired, however, because Deek quickly softened her message by continually saying "with all due respect" to Officer Johnson when she spoke about the police. Meanwhile, during the speech, the Hamas-tied CAIR "police" went around taking pictures of the audience. A CAIR member went from corner to corner of the room taking pictures of the audience. I know he was a CAIR member because he had a badge on. Maybe they hoped we wouldn't notice.
The three main points the Deek-led conference made in regards to the police were the following:
1. If the police stop you, say nothing except "am I free to leave"?
2. If the police ask for your ID, say nothing except for "am I free to leave"?
3. Muslims are the victims. (How they love to play the victim card.)
After the conference, the second Q & A was held. One of the questioners was a young hijab-wearing woman. The woman focused in on Deek as she speaking. She said that her friend was recently arrested for assault, but she claimed there was no proof of it. Her biggest complaint, however, was that the police supposedly would not let her put on a hijab before they led her out of the house. Her claim immediately caught the attention of Deek, Officer Johnson and Manuel Burgos. Deek started taking notes, and Johnson rose up and told the woman to see him after the meeting. He said that he would look into this, and said this might not be an officer we want around. All the while Burgos was shaking his head, as if this incident were the end of the world!
The meeting was finally winding down, but Deek had to throw one more punch. She stated that "the anti-Muslim movement is tremendous and powerful," and encouraged those in the audience organize against it. Because "the ones most suppressed are the ones who do nothing."
At the closing point, Manuel Burgos had completely forgotten about the tone she had taken when she began, and fell into the trap of Hamas-tied CAIR, playing nice. He invited them to hold another conference on the South Side. Hamas-tied CAIR, the enemy within, was once again preying on the naive and uniformed.
