ClarionProject.org has created a petition which calls on people to boycott "Best Buy" for financially supporting CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations). In less than 24 hours, 5,000 people had signed the petition.
CAIR was labeled by the federal government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a “charity” shut down for serving as a fundraising arm for the Hamas terrorist group.

Here some background:
Best Buy announced on its January 23 Facebook page that it was a “Platinum Sponsor” for a fundraising banquet for the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). After Best Buy defended its donation, the Clarion Fund’s ClarionProject.org started a petition for a boycott of the company until it rescinds its support for CAIR.
CAIR grew out of the Islamic Association of Palestine, another group that was shut down for being a Hamas front. The Muslim Brotherhood’s secret Palestine Committee in the U.S., set up to support Hamas, listed CAIR as a “working organization” in one of its documents in 1994.
A 2007 federal court filing stated, “From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists” and “the conspirators agreed to use deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists.” District Judge Jorge Solis agreed that CAIR was tied to Hamas and justified its designation as an “unindicted co-conspirator.”
Best Buy wasn’t simply negligent. Best Buy could have change course. Instead, the company boasted that the donation proves its good will and tolerance.
In a statement on Facebook, Best Buy said, “Best Buy’s customers and employees around the world represent a variety of faiths and denominations. We respect that diversity, and choose to engage with our customers, employees and communities in ways that reflect their traditions and maintain good relationships for Best Buy.”
