After the Ahmad Rahami bombings in New York and New Jersey over the weekend, chalk up another jihadist strike on the homeland enabled by CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The self-styled Muslim civil rights pressure group, more accurately understood as an intimidation-and-distraction front for the global Islamic supremacy movement, played a leading role in last year’s shutdown of NYPD surveillance of mosques in the area where jihad radicalization could be taking place.
Denial of the reality of jihadist aims against America, violent and nonviolent alike, such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton doggedly practice, has led directly to the mayhem in Fort Hood, Boston, San Bernardino, Orlando, and now the New York area.
So the logic is inescapable: if CAIR causes denial and denial causes terror and bloodshed across the land (not forgetting the jihadist knife attack that wounded 9 in Minnesota the other day), some of that blood is on CAIR’s hands.
CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation case, the largest terrorism funding trial in US history. It was founded as, and continues to function as, the obedient though unadmitted US face and voice of Hamas, the monstrous paramilitary group devoted to destroying Israel.
CAIR has been designated a terrorist organization by the United Emirates, and its mother ship, the Muslim Brotherhood, has been designated a terrorist organization by Egypt. Both entities deserve the same designation here.
The best way to inform yourself about these existential threats to our country’s survival is to visit UnderstandingtheThreat.com, sign up for their email bulletins, and order John Guandolo's short, powerful book, Raising a Jihadi Generation, available there.
I also recommend signing up for the email bulletins from CounterJihad.com, led by my friend Frank Gaffney, and the bulletins from the Investigative Project on Terrorism, led by the fearless Steve Emerson and the former House Intelligence Committee chairman, Pete Hoekstra.
