    I would be happy to provide statements from American officials that CAIR is indeed an "unindicted co-conspirator" with Hamas and others:

    Prosecutors applied the label of "unindicted co-conspirator" to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, and the North American Islamic Trust in connection with a trial planned in Texas next month for five officials of a defunct charity, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.

    http://www.nysun.com/national/islami...ng-case/55778/
    The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which brands itself as a mainstream promoter of civil rights, has been named with two other prominent U.S. Islamic groups as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in a plot to fund the terrorist group Hamas.

    Federal prosecutors also cited the Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust as participants in a plot with five officials of the defunct Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, who go on trial July 16 in Dallas, the New York Sun reported.

    CAIR is a spinoff of the defunct Islamic Association for Palestine, launched by Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook and former university professor Sami al-Arian, who pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to provide services to Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Several CAIR staffers have been convicted on terrorism-related charges, and CAIR founder Omar Ahmad allegedly told a group of Muslims they are in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam's rule over the country.

    So. The US has not denied CAIR's connection to terrorism. When one's organization is founded by the Brotherhood, how can such a connection be denied, really? Your continued support for CAIR is telling.

    Yes, a apt discription of the spread of Islam.

    The Holy Land Foundation was charged on terrorism charges and its assets frozen because it gave aid to the Palestinians through the legally elected government of Gaza, Hamas. The US and US corporations are not allowed to engage in business with a US termed "state sponsor of terror."

    Its as simple as that. Other notable "state sponsors of terror" include among others the governments of Iran, Syria, north Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba.

    Whatever the US government decides as a "state sponsor of terror" is not always factual or correct. Many people in the worldwide community still have relations with Hamas, it is only because of Israeli pressure that the Holy Land Foundation was shut down. It is a black mark on US legal history.

    You may call the FBI or any government organization to ask your questions about CAIR. I think you will be surprised by their answers.

    last I heard Hamas was elected and the US supported an occupation of their country by the people who had kidnapped and imprisoned the elected parliament. I don't recall any law in the world that does not recognise the right to fight the occupation and oppression of your land. So who is the terrorist here? And who is the unindicted co-conspirator?

    ??? I think we just illustrated that, didn't we?

    The Department of Treasury also reported that HLF funds were used by Hamas to support schools that served Hamas ends by encouraging children to become suicide bombers and to recruit suicide bombers by offering support to their families.

    When one considers the associations al-Arian and the rest have, it's little surprise, really.

    And? How does this change the fact that they are an elected government, with no army and under occupation? That they were kidnapped by an occupying military regime that has them imprisoned? So they are crappy leaders. Since when has that been the criteria for kidnapping an elected leader? Plenty of crappier leaders who are also invading others and killing millions. Compared to them, Hamas are rank amateurs. Their civilian toll is almost statistically insignificant, for both their own countrymen and the occupiers. Perhaps they could also receive a few warplanes with the capability of pounding civilians with a thousand pounds of ammo?

    That is assuming you know anything about law. Of course, you're free to find such a law that will support your usual brand of intellectual dishonesty and lies.

    So who is the terrorist here? And who is the unindicted co-conspirator?
    Who is the fabrication artist? Who is the propagandist?

    These laws all apply to the occupation force [all of which have been broken by Israel btw]
    I don't see any law that says the occupied cannot fight back. Can you?

    It is forbidden to compel the inhabitants of occupied territory to swear allegiance to the hostile Power.

    So back when CAIR was founded, they were an elected government? But weren't they founded by the Muslim Brotherhood, based in Egypt?

    That they were kidnapped by an occupying military regime that has them imprisoned? So they are crappy leaders. Since when has that been the criteria for kidnapping an elected leader?
    So it's all about Palestine? Why then are so many of CAIR's staff and ex-staff behind bars for independent convictions for supporting terrorism? You'd think that sort of HLF thing would be a one-shot deal, but it isn't. The same issue just keeps coming up. And then there's all those supremacist statements by CAIR officials - what's up with that? Surely they don't believe all those things? They're a moderate organization!

    You know, like their founders, the Muslim Brotherhood. Or Islamic Jihad. Or, say...MPACUK. Soundvision. Et cetera.

    What about Islam? either become Moslem, or at best live the life of a Dhimmi, or die, at the whim of the Islamic Master.

    Object to that fact and die under Islamic Law.

    Even though he isn't, if Obama was Muslim, what would be wrong with that?



    Reality? What the heck are you talking about?

    I think you are getting different groups mixed up in your comment.

    Also, we are not talking about Iraq, we are talking about Muslims in America.

    Israelis and Republicans, STOP TRYING TO DERAIL THIS THREAD.

    MODERATORS, WHERE ARE YOU?
    Umm, dude. I was responding to a moderator's post when you interjected your bigotry into our conversation.

    Get real.

    This is not the thread to discuss Iraq, go somewhere else.

    Also, I hardly think that defending Muslims from discrimination and denial of human rights is bigotry.

    Only in an upside-down Republican world, would a victim ever appear to be a criminal.

    You derailed this thread from post #2. Go somewhere else, preferably start your own thread.

    Your only purpose here is to demonize innocent Muslim Americans. Your comments are hate. They are not welcome in an intellectual debate.
