The Importance of the FBI's CAIR Cut Off
Mary Jacoby of The Investigative Project brings the important news that the FBI, after years of legitimizing CAIR as a mainstream Muslim organization, has finally cut of their dealings with the organization.

This is the first time a part of the government has publicly linked the presence of CAIR in meetings to the government entity's refusal to attend the meeting. This stand is long overdue, and one that should be followed by other government agencies. The FBI has said it won't deal with CAIR until "certain issues" are addressed to the FBI's satisfaction, and must be addressed by the national FBI, not local field offices.

Why? Because CAIR, as has now been amply documented, was formed to support Hamas and has organic ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Holy Land Foundation documents show this clearly. (For a look at how the package ties together from what is now public evidence, see this NEFA Foundation piece I co-authored.

It is worth recalling how CAIR came into existence, is historical relationships, and what its group of organizations actually said, in their own words, about what they are doing here. These are some of the issues the FBI wisely would like explained by the CAIR leadership. The full citations can be found in the NEFA paper.

It is important to note that the authenticity of the documents and their content were not disputed during the trial, but were accepted as legitimate. This should be borne in mind as CAIR and its allies launch an intensive lobbying campaign on Capitol Hill and elsewhere to get rehabilitated.

Rather than actually address any of these issues, it is a fair bet that CAIR will focus on claims that the FBI action is a result of "islamophobia," "intolerance," and present themselves as victims of a campaign to deprive them of civil rights. They should not be allowed to get away with less than a full explanation of their own actions and words.

CAIR does not speak for all Muslims in this country, or even most. Its membership has plummeted in recent years and it thrives because of is access to the FBI and other government institutions.

First, the MB is not al Qaeda, but it is Hamas, and Hamas is the MB. Article 2 of the Hamas founding charter:

“The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement of modern times. It is characterized by its deep
understanding, accurate comprehension and its complete embrace of all Islamic concepts of all aspects of life, culture, creed, politics, economics, education, society, justice and judgment ,the spreading of Islam, education, art, information, science of the occult and
conversion to Islam.”

The parent organization of CAIR advocated internally for the use of front groups:

“[Fronts groups are] one method to communicate the Ikhwan’s point of view. A front is not formed until after a study and after an exhaustive study. I mean, the last front formed by the Group is the Islamic Association for Palestine. So, Ikhwans, this did not come out
over night, or it was not the Ikhwnans who are in charge went to sleep, dreamed about it and met the next day and decided to do it. Not at all, by God. This went through lengthy meetings and took long discussions.”

And, most damagingly, the HLF trial documents show the Muslim Brotherhood agenda in this country to be something other than simple co-existence and integration into society.

In order for Islam and its Movement to become “a part of the homeland” in which it lives, “stable” in its land, “rooted” in the spirits and minds of its people, “enabled” in the live of its
society and has firmly established “organizations” on which the Islamic structure is built and with which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out this grand mission as
a “Civilization Jihadist” responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them – the Muslim Brotherhood in this country…

Then, the heart of the matter:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up
to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.”

As for the role of the Ikhwan, it is the initiative, pioneering, leadership, raising the banner and pushing people in that direction. They are then to work to employ, direct and unify Muslims’ efforts and powers for this process. In order to do that, we must possess a
mastery of the art of “coalitions”, the art of “absorption” and the principles of “cooperation”

I hope the FBI and other parts of the government stand firm in their rejection of CAIR as a valid interlocutor for the Islamic community.
