The State Department has been investigating why the United Arab Emirates would designate the Hamas tied CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations a terror group. We also know that Barack Hussein Obama is openly working with Hamas. Now, it’s come out that the Obama State Department is working with Hamas-CAIR to attempt a reversal of the UAE’s designation of the group as a terrorist organization.
Several of Hamas-CAIR’s leadership have been convicted of terror-related, Islamic jihad crimes, including Ghassan Elashi, Mousa Abu Marzook, Randall Royer, Bassem Khafagi, and Rabih Haddad.
Even Democrat Senator Charles Schumer has said, “CAIR has ties to terrorism and intimate links with Hamas.“
According to a press release by CAIR:
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/22/14) –- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said today that its representatives met with U.S. government officials about a recent move by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to add CAIR and the Muslim American Society (MAS) to its list of “terrorist” groups.
In a joint statement, CAIR and MAS said:
“The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) met with senior U.S. government officials regarding the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) recent inclusion of the two legally-operating organizations on a list of groups it considers to be terrorist entities. The two American Muslim organizations and the U.S. government pledged to work together to achieve a positive solution to the UAE designations. (emphasis mine)
“A State Department spokesman rejected the designations two days after the list was issued and affirmed that department officials meet regularly with representatives of CAIR and MAS.”
Robert Spencer writes, “ABC News confirms this, noting in the very last paragraph of its story that the UAE (United Arab Emirates) has designated Hamas-linked CAIR a terrorist group. Probably they buried it out of embarrassment over the fact that the mainstream media has been going to Hamas-linked CAIR for years as if they were really what they claim to be, a civil rights organization. The fact that a government, any government, has branded it terrorist must be as embarrassing to the mainstream media as it is to Hamas-linked CAIR — that is, if either of them were capable of embarrassment.”
Will the Obama administration’s Justice Department now denounce the UAE (United Arab Emirates) for “Islamophobia”?
We already know that they are seeking to give cover for Hamas-CAIR as is evident in this video: U.S. Rejects UAE Labeling of Two American Muslim Groups.
