Hamas-CAIR is praising its tools at the Department of Justice for pursuing a sharia agenda to restrict free speech and criminalize criticism Islam.

Hamas-CAIR calls the close to 2,000 freedom lovers an “anti-Muslim mob.” We are anti-oppression. We are anti-statism. We are anti-totalitarianism. We are anti-sharia. Does that make us anti-Muslim? Of course not. As far as calling us a mob, that is funny. Pot, meet kettle.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”) is a terrorist organization operating as a front group for Hamas and its affiliated organizations.  CAIR was begun as a Hamas front group to carry out the Muslim Brotherhood’s anti-American agenda. Much, but not all of this evidence, was documented in United States v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development et al., 3:04-cr-00240-P (N.D. Texas) (“HLF”).

The evidence shows that CAIR is a criminal terrorist organization. This conclusion is shared by the United States government. CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive conspiracy to fundraise for, and otherwise pursue, the terrorist agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestine Committee, a public relations and fund raising arm of Hamas in the United States.[ Specifically, CAIR was named as one of the organizations formed by the defendants and co-conspirators to create the appearance of legality in the effort to raise funds and public support for Hamas and its jihad abroad.  As the evidence in the HLF trial demonstrated, these plans were part of a Philadelphia planning meeting carried out by Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas operatives, a meeting which the FBI secretly recorded pursuant to a lawful court order, the entire transcript of which was introduced into the record at the HLF trial. Two of the key participants at this Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas planning meeting were Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad. Ahmad co-founded CAIR, along with CAIR’s executive director Awad, in 1994 soon after this meeting. Ahmad served as CAIR’s chairman of the board until 2005 and Awad still serves as CAIR’s executive director.

Further, the federal prosecutors successfully resisted every effort by CAIR to have the public designation of CAIR as an “unindicted co-conspirator” removed from the court record and concluded as follows in its brief to the court:

This group is applauding the attempt to restrict free speech. Are you surprised?
