CAIR Watch

[Logo from this source]

Regular readers know that one of the focuses of this blog has been CAIR. An index to those articles is HERE. I've been watching CAIR for quite some time.

Recently, Joe Kaufman, an investigative journalist who sometimes publishes articles at Front Page Magazine, has put out a call asking for volunteers to report stories about CAIR.

From this source:
Since the early 80's, the terrorist organization Hamas has had a presence within the United States. Many groups connected to Hamas have come and gone. They include: the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), the Global Relief Foundation (GRF) and KindHearts.

Another organization, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) was shut down in 2005, after it was found liable for the murder of an American boy who was killed during a Hamas terror operation in Israel. Eleven years prior to its closure, three leaders from the IAP created the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR.

CAIR Watch, a project of Americans Against Hate, was founded with the mission to expose the extremist nature and terrorist ties of CAIR, in hopes that it will be shut down, just as the others were before it. You can help in this endeavor. We need you to be our eyes and ears in your area. Events, publications, statements, and all else concerning the aforementioned are of grave importance to us.

Is there an article, blog entry or CAIR quote that we need to place on our site? Do you know of someone connected to the group that we should create a new profile for? We are open to your suggestions.

If you would like to assist us and become a CAIR Watcher, feel free to send an e-mail to us at:
cairwatchers@americansagainsthate.org
Mr. Kaufman, chairman of Americans Against Hate, is scheduled to speak at the America's Truth Forum Symposium Understanding the Threat of Radical Islam Terrorism, to be held on November 10-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Details are HERE.

Cair is known to abuse the court system.They did lose a while back to some anti Cair writer, but bear that in mind.

Details about the dismissed law suit are HERE, HERE, and HERE.

"The Hijab That Wasn't" is an example of what watchers can uncover. Excerpt:

...[M]uch of what CAIR produces is not all it appears to be — as was graphically illustrated this week by a misadventure in photo retouching at CAIR’s website. A photograph posted at CAIR’s website depicted “leaders of the interfaith community gathered for an interfaith candlelight vigil…to mark the fourth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.” One of these leaders — who appeared to be Samina Faheem Sundas, editor of the American Muslim Voice — was standing prominently between the male speaker at the podium and two other Muslim women. Those women were standing submissively with hands clasped in front and eyes cast downward, hijabs showing prominently in the picture. But there was something suspicious about the hijab worn by the woman resembling Sundas: she wasn’t actually wearing one. The one she had on in the picture was crudely drawn on her head by a retoucher. What’s more, two women in the crowd also sported drawn-on hijabs. Someone at CAIR evidently thought that posting a photo of bareheaded women would cast doubts upon the organization’s Islamic correctness.

When I posted the photos illustrating this at my website, Jihad Watch (www.jihadwatch.org), CAIR within hours replaced the retouched photo with the unretouched original. But the damage was done: soon Michelle Malkin, Little Green Footballs, Instapundit, Roger L. Simon, Protein Wisdom, and many others had spread the story all over the blogosphere.

If this were the only example of CAIR airbrushing the truth, it would be innocuous enough. But it isn’t...


Additional examples, more serious in nature, follow.

How terrible, to be forced into one of those unholy hijabs, in one way or another!

CAIR is nothing more than a social terror group waging legal jihad on a daily basis.

Ronbo,
Thank you for posting the link.

Brooke,
CAIR is nothing more than a social terror group waging legal jihad on a daily basis.

That's an excellent term--"legal jihad."

I think our "Islamic scholar" Brooke is confusing hijab with burqa.

Tunisia is trying to outlaw the headscarf in public places and is meeting quite a bit of resistance. I don't understand why women would insist on the freedom to make their own choice.

CAIR and ACLU are just four-letter words in my book.

While occupational committments, including upcoming lengthy periods offshore restrict my time for a lot of involvements I would otherwise like to commit myself to, I will want to post the CAIR Watch symbol on one of my blog's sideboards as a link to it, and perhaps post occasional blogbursts or contribute material where I can.

This looks to be a positive new front in our defense against Islam's thus far all too successful propaganda war.

Ducky, are you insane?

I did not confuse a hijab for a burqua.

The title of the article in question is "The Hijab That Wasn't."

Had I said burqa, then I would've been confusing them, like you seem to be.

And since we're doing sarcastic linking, Ducky...

Brooke,
LOL!
