In October 2019, Clarion Project broke the story that the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claimed that “120+” members of Congress sent the Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization wrote letters supporting CAIR ahead of their 25th anniversary gala scheduled for November 9 at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Washington, D.C.
At the time, those letters supporting CAIR could not be found publicly and requests for them from CAIR went unanswered.
Now, those letters have been published.
Included in the list of letters supporting CAIR, a virulently anti-Israel, Islamist organization, are letters from Democrat presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, who were both recently endorsed by The New York Times as their candidates of choice for the president.
CAIR describes itself as “America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group,” but in 2007, the U.S. government labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing the Hamas terrorist group.
In November 2014, CAIR was designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates along with a host of other Muslim Brotherhood entities.
CAIR was listed among “individuals/entities who are/were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” The Palestine Committee is a secret body set up to advance the Brotherhood/Hamas agenda in America.
The FBI subsequently severed official contacts with the group, saying it “does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.”
Yet members of Congress – either ignorantly or intentionally — continue to endorse CAIR.
