The FBI has severed relations with CAIR, the dishonest and slippery Council for American Islamic Relations. For this we give thanks. But it’s one down, and several dozens of “moderate” Islamic front groups to go. For background, here's an IBD editorial. Now let's all write our representatives to encourage them NOT to talk to CAIR! Emphasize they are NOT a “civil rights group” that represents a religious minority persecuted by “Islamophobes”. Point out that CAIR is a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood who has vowed to destroy our civilization and our freedoms.
The reason this is important: CAIR will try to “end-run” FBI officials and apply pressure to members of the FBI’s Congressional oversight committee. This is where we can help. I implore you to join me in doing so. Only large numbers of cards, letters, e-mails and faxes can counteract the large sums of Islamic petro-dollar lobby money.
I would also recommend you retain the contact information for your Senators and Congress persons, because we will be needing them often in the Obama era that's now underway.
UPDATE: Since the above was written, it appears the CAIR end run is already starting. Virginia Congressman Frank Wolf is pushing the FBI not to cave in under the new administration. Steve Emerson and the Investigative Project on Terrorism have the story.
