The case against jihad groups aligned with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood moves forward:
Legal Challenge Exposing Massive CAIR Fraud Scheme Awaiting Judge’s Ruling;
Jury Trial Expected AFLC
Yesterday, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) and the Law Offices of David Yerushalmi, P.C. filed its reply brief in support of its motion for summary judgment in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of five former clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who had earlier filed two separate lawsuits in federal court against CAIR, alleging common law and statutory fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
CAIR, a self-described Muslim public interest law firm, was previously named as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the federal criminal trial and conviction of a terrorist funding cell organized around one of the largest Muslim charities, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF). HLF raised funds for violent jihad on behalf of Hamas, and top CAIR officials were part of the conspiracy. In addition, several of CAIR’s top executives have been convicted of terror-related crimes. As a result, the FBI publicly announced that it has terminated any outreach activities with the national organization, which bills itself as “America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization.”
