Four Stages of Islamic Conquest

Kasey Jachim:

1. Infiltration (Yep, we have that)
2. Consolidation of Power (Yep, that too)
3. Open War with Leadership & Culture (That’s alive and well in Dearbornistan and coming to a city near you soon…..)
4. Totalitarian Islamic Theocracy (That is their ultimate goal and we are complicit in helping them….)
We need to elect a strong, non-Muslim leader and pray we are not too late!

4 Stages of Islamic Conquest:

STAGE 1: INFILTRATION

Muslims begin moving to non-Muslim countries in increasing numbers and the beginning of cultural conflicts are visible, though often subtle.

  • First migration wave to non-Muslim “host” country.
  • Appeal for humanitarian tolerance from the host society.
  • Attempts to portray Islam as a peaceful & Muslims as victims of misunderstanding and racism (even though Islam is not a ‘race’).
  • High Muslim birth rate in host country increase Muslim population.
  • Mosques used to spread Islam and dislike of host country & culture.
  • Calls to criminalize “Islamophobia” as a hate crime.
  • Threatened legal action for perceived discrimination.
  • Offers of “interfaith dialogue” to indoctrinate non-Muslims.

How many nations are suffering from Islamic infiltration? One? A handful? Nearly every nation? The Islamic ‘leadership” of the Muslim Brotherhood and…

Rep. Keith Ellison Rewrites History on his Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR Ties

Via PJMedia

The most recent salvo in the kerfuffle between Minnesota congressmen Michele Bachmann and Keith Ellison finds Ellison attacking Bachmann for her statements made on Glenn Beck’s radio program on Thursday, where she said:

GLENN:  Okay.  So when you wrote this letter, then Keith Ellison comes out.  And Keith Ellison is ‑‑ he has a record of being the Mafia hitman.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Well, he has a long record of being associated with CAIR and with the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR is an unindicted co‑conspirator, as stated in the large terrorist financing case that we’ve had in the United States of America and so he came out and essentially wanted to shut down the inspectors general from even looking into any of the questions that we were asking. So he wanted to shut it down.  In response I wrote another letter back to Keith Ellison, a 16‑page letter which I would encourage all of your listeners to go and read this letter. It’s what I call a bulletproof letter. I have 59 footnotes with one example after another of the penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the federal government…

In response, Ellison told the Huffington Post:

“I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said with a laugh.

In fact, it is his denial that is laughable.

But this weekend Ellison doubled-down on his denial, telling Politico:

I support American institutions. I don’t know enough about [the Muslim Brotherhood]. What I know about them is that in Egypt, one of their candidates has ascended to the presidency. I’ve never met that person. But I do think the United States should have a foreign policy where we talk to foreign leaders of all kinds. But no, I don’t have any, I don’t have any Muslim Brotherhood connections that she’s talking about.

According to Ellison’s impeccable logic, since he hasn’t met Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader and new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, therefore he has no knowledge of the Muslim Brotherhood.

But a mountain of evidence of his contacts with and support of Muslim Brotherhood front groups – identified as such by the U.S. government – shows that the Muslim Brotherhood definitely knows who he is.

Rewind to 2008, when Keith Ellison went on a 16-day hajj trip to Saudi Arabia paid for by the Muslim American Society (MAS) to the tune of $13,500.

As Scott Johnson at Powerline noted at the time that Ellison had conflicting stories about who paid for the trip:

The Star Tribune first reported on Ellison’s hajj in two puff pieces by Mitch Anderson this past December. Anderson first reported the statement of Ellison spokesman Rick Jauert that Ellison had paid for the trip himself. When Anderson returned to the story, he got such deep stuff from Ellison as this: “This is just me trying to be the best person I can be.” In the second story Anderson also reported that the MAS Minnesota paid for Ellison’s trip to Mecca, though Anderson didn’t pause to note the discrepancy between his two stories on this point.

As Fox News reported on the MAS sponsorship of Ellison’s trip, Ellison returned the favor to his benefactors by speaking at the 2007 and 2008 MAS-Minnesota conventions.

But who is MAS?

Fortunately, federal prosecutors cleared up the matter back in December 2007 when they said in a court filing in the federal appeal of convicted terror operative Sabri Benkahla (page 58, footnote 13):

MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.

As support for that statement, the federal prosecutors cited a September 2004 investigative report by the Chicago Tribune, which chronicles the efforts by the international Muslim Brotherhood to create Islamic states worldwide including the U.S.

The group identified by the Chicago Tribune as the main organization operating today on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood was MAS:

In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.

So in 2004 – four years before Ellison’s MAS-financed trip to Saudi Arabia – MAS had been identified in the establishment media as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood.

And in case there was any confusion on Ellison’s part, federal prosecutors addressed the issue again in December 2007 – one year before Ellison’s MAS hajj trip – saying that MAS was “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

That alone should prompt an apology by Ellison to Bachmann.

As the late Billy Mays would say, but wait, there’s more.

Another group that Ellison has a longtime association with is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), going back at least as far as his 2006 campaign when he was first elected to Congress.

As Joel Mowbray reported in the Washington Times during that campaign, CAIR raised tens of thousands of dollars in bundled donations for Ellison’s election war chest and held CAIR fundraisers specifically for Ellison’s campaign.

Since that time, Ellison has reciprocated CAIR’s support by appearing at a number of fundraisers on the group’s behalf.

For example, immediately after his election Ellison gave this videotaped address to the CAIR national fundraiser on November 18, 2006:

The following year Ellison spoke on behalf of the CAIR-Los Angeles chapter:

And lest Ellison and his backers claim this is old news, here’s an advertisement for a CAIR-Los Angeles fundraiser where Ellison was the keynote speaker in May 2011:

Please note that this CAIR fundraiser was co-sponsored by none other than MAS.

So who is CAIR?

Again, federal prosecutors and the federal courts have sufficiently cleared up the matter.

In the same December 2007 federal appeals court filing by federal prosecutors in the Benkahla case that identified MAS as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America,” they also stated with respect to CAIR (page 58, footnote 13):

Moreover, from its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.

So according to the federal government, CAIR was not only founded by the Muslim Brotherhood, but it was founded to help support terrorists. (Bet you won’t read that in the Huffington Post.)

Earlier than that, in June 2007, federal prosecutors named CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial — the largest terrorism financing trial in American history. In naming CAIR in the case, it identified the group as among “the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” (page 5, no. 11)

The Justice Department gave some context to CAIR’s creation and role in the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee when it responded to motions filed by Islamic groups seeking to have their names removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list.

Federal prosecutors said in their response (page 13):

The U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised of three organizations: The OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR was later added to these organizations… The mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support HAMAS…

During that trial in September 2008, FBI Special Agent Lara Burns testified in federal court that CAIR was a front for the terrorist group Hamas.

As a result of the convictions in that case, and the trial evidence submitted by federal prosecutors in the case, the FBI announced in January 2009 that it was severing all ties to CAIR.

In response to that announcement, New York Sen. Charles Schumer joined Arizona Sen. John Kyl and Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn in a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller asserting the ban on contact with CAIR “should be government-wide policy”:

And in a federal court decision unsealed in November 2010 by Judge Jorge Solis, who presided over the Holy Land Foundation trial, he dedicated six pages to outlining the “ample evidence” connecting CAIR and other Islamic organizations to the Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee’s conspiracy to support Hamas (pp. 14-15):

What’s remarkable about all the trial evidence and court decisions regarding MAS and CAIR is that Keith Ellison would be aware of it since Bachmann included this information along with links to all of the relevant documents in her 16-page July 13th letter to the congressman, which he derided last week as “16 pages of nothing.” (The Huffington Post and the rest of the establishment media could have informed themselves as well if they had also read her letter.)

But before leaving the issue of Ellison’s relationship to CAIR, it should be observed that the first Muslim congressman has run into conflicts with his own congressional colleagues over CAIR.

In addition to Sen. Schumer’s aforementioned plea to make the FBI’s ban on contact with CAIR “government-wide policy,” other Democrats have made public statements critical of the organization. In a September 2003 hearing, Sen. Dick Durbin described CAIR as “unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its association with groups that are suspect.” (page 21):

However, I have noted previously Durbin’s apparent change of heart.

In 2006, California Sen. Barbara Boxer rescinded an award to a local CAIR chapter, which she called a mistake, expressing her concerns after she heard from law enforcement officials that CAIR “gives aid to international terrorist groups.”

Will Ellison be consistent and attack his fellow Democratic colleagues as “malicious and bigoted” as he has Bachmann for making the same assessment of CAIR?

And when Ellison appeared at a September 2009 CAIR-Arizona fundraiser, three members of the Arizona congressional delegation, supported by the Arizona-based American Islamic Forum for Democracy, sent a letter calling on the Minnesota congressman to reconsider his appearance in light of CAIR’s extensive documented ties to extremism and terrorism (somebody better tell John McCain to get his delegation in line). Ellison appeared anyway.

Without the slightest tinge of irony, Ellison said at that CAIR-AZ fundraiser that “I would never associate myself with anyone even soft on terrorism.”

But go back to the August 2006 fundraiser sponsored by CAIR. According to the Washington Post, Ellison’s CAIR campaign fundraiser was headed by none other than CAIR co-founder and executive director Nihad Awad. Awad also bundled contributions on behalf of Ellison’s campaign.

So who is Nihad Awad?

According to Justice Department, Awad is a longtime Hamas operative. Multiple statements made by federal prosecutors identify Awad as one of the attendees at a 1993 meeting of US Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee leaders in Philadelphia that was wiretapped by the FBI under a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant. The topic of discussion during that 1993 meeting was how to help Hamas by working in the U.S. to help sabotage the Oslo peace accords.

In April 2011, I broke the story here at PJ Media that the Holder Justice Department had scuttled the pending indictment of Omar Ahmad as part of the second round of Holy Land Foundation prosecutions. AG Holder admitted later that week that Ahmad’s prosecution had been dropped.

A government exhibit in the Holy Land Foundation case identifies both Nihad Awad and CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad at the 1993 Philadelphia Hamas meeting:

And during the Holy Land Foundation case, one of the trial exhibits submitted to the court by federal prosecutors was a list of Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee members, which includes Nihad Awad (page 4, no. 32):

So in contradiction to Ellison, he not only associates with individuals soft on terrorism, he’ll freely associate with those who are hard on terrorism.

Speaking of which, as the Weekly Standard has reported, in February 2000 Ellison delivered a speech at a fundraiser for former Symbionese Liberation Army member Kathleen Soliah (aka Sarah Jane Olson), who was arrested in June 1999 for the attempted pipe bomb murder of LAPD officers in 1975. During that same speech Ellison spoke favorably of cop killers Mumia Abu-Jamal and Assata Shakur.

In October 2001, Ellison’s pal Soliah pled guilty to two counts of possessing explosives with intent to murder.

So in the case of both Nihad Awad and his friend Kathleen Soliah, Keith Ellison had no problem associating with individuals soft and hard on terrorism.

Finally, Keith Ellison has some serious chutzpah to attack anyone as “malicious and bigoted” considering his history as the former local Minneapolis spokesman for the rabidly anti-Semitic Nation of Islam.

Among the many lowlights of Ellison’s pre-congressional career was a statement he gave during a meeting of the Minnesota Initiative Against Racism, where he defended “the truth” of the claim that “Jews are the most racist white people.” Lovely.

So before the media parrots his heated accusations of Michele Bachmann’s supposed “bigotry,” perhaps Keith Ellison needs to be measured by his own standards.

And color me skeptical of his claim that because he hasn’t met Egyptian president and Muslim Brotherhood party leader Mohammed Morsi, he has no knowledge of the Muslim Brotherhood.

That, however, brings up the the following question: if he really doesn’t know who the Muslim Brotherhood is, how can he attack Michele Bachmann for trying to bring him up to speed?

Michele Bachmann Fires Off 16-Page Bombshell to Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison

Via Walid Shoebat. . . Former Muslim Brotherhood Member Now Peace Activist

Yes, there is a Huma Abedin angle to this story but a certain Muslim Congressman seems to be in the middle of digging himself a bit of a hole.

On July 12th, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Muslim-MN) sent a two-page letter to the five congressmen who sent five separate letters to five separate Inspectors General on June 13th. The June 13th letters raised serious concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration inside the U.S. Government. Among the concerns raised with the OIG at the State Department are the familial connections of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide – Huma Abedin – to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ellison attempted to pit Bachmann against Republicans like Herman Cain and Chris Christie by pointing out that her source in the June 13th letters seemed to be one person – Frank Gaffney. Gaffney has rightfully been very critical of said Republicans in the past for their comments and actions relative to Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

Moreover, Ellison seemed to allege in his July 12th letter that Gaffney was Bachmann’s only source.

Here is how Ellison ended that letter:

Despite Mr. Gaffney’s record of unsubstantiated allegations, you appear to have based your letters to the Inspectors General on his views.

I request that you provide my office a full accounting of the sources you used to make the serious allegations against the individuals and organizations in your letters. If there is not credible, substantial evidence for your allegations, I sincerely hope that you will publically (sic) clear their names.

Ask and ye shall receive, Congressman…

Bachmann responded to Ellison by sending him a 16-page bombshell (via SC Times) that is strewn with 59 separate footnotes, proving unequivocally that Gaffney is hardly her only source. Says Bachmann:

I do note that the facts we presented in the Inspector General request letters are based on information presented by U.S. Government officials in court documents, court evidence, correspondence and briefings with Congress and public statements, in addition to known media reporting. These letters were far from sole-sourced as you maintain in your letter.

While I can’t speak on behalf of the other signatories of these letters, nor am I able to get into the private discussions and documentation received by the various House committees represented by the signatories on these matters that motivated these letters to the various Inspectors General, out of respect to you I am happy to respond to some of your concerns, provide the sources you ask for, as well as clarify a few points that may have been misunderstood or misrepresented.

Furthermore, Ellison’s defense of groups that should be identified as enemies of the United States puts him in dangerous territory and Bachmann exploited it. In citing the Holy Land Foundation Trial – along with attempts by CAIR and ISNA to be removed from unindicted co-conspirator list – Bachmann quotes from the Judge’s declination of that request:

Finally, CAIR, NAIT, and ISNA ask the Court to strike their names from any public document filed or issued by the government (Mot. at 6.) While it is clear from the Briggs line of cases that the Government should have originally filed the unindicted co-conspirators’ names under seal, the Court declines to strike CAIR, ISNA and NAIT’s names from those documents. The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas. (Bachmann’s letter cites the Judge’s Memorandum Opinion Order)

Ellison is dangerously close to outwardly defending groups tied to Hamas – a designated terrorist organization – and he’s doing so on the Congressional record. Bachmann basically check-mates Ellison in the very next sentence:

It should be noted that Article 2 of the Hamas Covenant identifies Hamas as a Muslim Brotherhood entity while Article 7 calls for the global killing of all Jews (Bachmann cites – of all things – Yale Law School).

Ellison is attempting to smear Bachmann while defending Huma Abedin from much needed scrutiny. Bachmann merely wants to investigate Abedin’s familial connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s already known that Huma’s mother – Saleha Abedin – is one of the Muslim Sisterhood’s 63 leaders. Is Ellison willing to overlook or deny this? That also puts him on very dangerous ground.

Ellison might want to re-think his position or he will be openly choosing the wrong side as more evidence is produced.

On second thought, Congressman, just keep telling us how you really feel. In a bizarre way, it’s kind of refreshing.

Another Holder Cover-up? Eric Holder Covers Up for Radical Islamists

By Ryan Mauro via Radical Islam

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is in the spotlight after the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to hold him in contempt because he is refusing to provide documents related to the Fast and the Furious scandal. But there’s another scandal you should know about. For over one year, he has refused to hand over documents about the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, confronted Holder about the matter on Thursday, June 21. Rep. Gohmert wants Congress to have access to documents from the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history. Five Foundation officials were found guilty of funding Hamas and evidence introduced by the federal government shows it was set up by the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret “Palestine Committee” in the U.S.

Three prominent Muslim-American organizations were labeled by the federal government as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial-the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). The documents requested by Rep. Gohmert for the past year were provided to the Holy Land Foundation’s defense team, yet are being denied to Congress.

“They are terrorists, and we wanted the documents you gave to the terrorists. We are a year later, and we still don’t have them,” complained Rep. Gohmert. Holder replied that he’d only provide what is already available publicly.

Watch Rep. Gohmert grill holder at a Congressional hearing on the subject:

Rep. Gohmert is one of five members of Congress requesting investigations into the influence of Muslim Brotherhood-tied organizations and individuals in the U.S. government. As I reviewed here, this influence is far-reaching. It is very possible that the documents from the Holy Land trial would be embarrassing to many government officials, not to mention businesses and interfaith groups that have embraced Brotherhood entities. At the very least, they could provide further justification for the labeling of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT as “unindicted co-conspirators.”

The documents were originally requested on April 27, 2011 after reporter Patrick Poole broke the blockbuster story at Pajamas Media that Justice Department political appointees blocked the prosecution of one CAIR co-founder and, according to his high-level Justice Department source, other groups and individuals listed as “unindicted co-conspirators.”

Poole learned that Assistant Attorney General David Kris wrote a memo dated March 31, 2010 titled, “Declination of Prosecution of Omar Ahmad,” an individual who was present at a Muslim Brotherhood meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 to discuss how to support Hamas. The idea to create a new group was put forward at this meeting and Ahmad co-founded CAIR the next year. Ahmad was also personally listed as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land trial. The given reason to drop the prosecution was potential jury nullification but the source is certain that it was a political decision.

According to Poole’s source, “It was always the plan to initially go after the [HLF] leaders first and then go after the rest of the accomplices in a second round of prosecutions.” The original trial resulted in a mistrial, pushing back the planned prosecutions. The Obama Administration then came into office and they were stopped.

After the report broke, the Administration claimed that its predecessor had decided not to indict CAIR in 2004. Poole explains that this is true but it was because “They decided to get the bigger fish after they convicted the smaller fish.” Rep. Peter King confirmed that FBI officials and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Texas, which prosecuted the Holy Land Foundation, were ready to begin the second round of prosecutions and were outraged at how the political appointees stopped them.

Congressional sources later told Poole that Assistant Attorney General David Kris also dropped the prosecution of several officials involved with the International Institute of Islamic Thought, a Muslim Brotherhood front, and the SAAR Foundation/SAFA Group, which has disbanded since the federal government raided their offices. They were to be prosecuted on charges related to tax evasion and money laundering because Sami al-Arian, a Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in the U.S., refused to testify and reveal their terrorist connections.

Poole reported that one of these protected officials is Jamal Barzinji. In October 2011, former Virginia Governor and current Democratic Senate candidate Tim Kaine spoke at an event honoring Barzinji. His ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas are very well-documented. FBI documents all the way back from 1987-1988 identify him as a Brotherhood operative. He is also a founder of the radical Dar al-Hijrah mosque, which Treasury Department records say “is a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in the U.S.”

Rep. Gohmert slammed Holder for not prosecuting these groups and individuals when there is a “mountain of evidence” against them. He further revealed that “at least one of which now says it is working inside your [Holder’s] agency to help advise on the purge of counter-terrorism training materials.”

The role of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has already been discovered. MPAC was founded by Brotherhood ideologues and works in tandem with the aforementioned groups, but was not labeled as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land trial. Rep. Gohmert was apparently referring to  CAIR, ISNA or NAIT.

On February 8, ISNA was part of an interfaith group that met with the FBI Director about the training materials. A FBI spokesperson said the agency would consider a proposal from the group to create a committee to review the materials. More recently, the White House’s new Director for Community Partnerships, George Selim, said that “There is [sic] hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues.”

Fast and the Furious isn’t the only controversy Holder is refusing to show documents about, but it’s probably the only one you’re hearing about.

Congressional Leaders Call for Investigations of Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the Obama Administration

Reblogged from The Counter Jihad Report

Center for Security Policy | Jun 15, 2012

Washington, DC, June 14, 2012: Five influential Members of Congress called yesterday for the inspectors general (IGs) of government departments with national security responsibilities to investigate whether their agencies are being subjected to influence operations mounted as part of what the Muslim Brotherhood calls its “civilization jihad.” This initiative holds out hope that a grave, and largely unremarked, threat may thus be recognized and thwarted in time.

 

The authors of letters sent to the IGs for the Departments of State, Justice, Defense and Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are:

  • Rep. Michele Bachman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee and Chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus
  • Rep. Trent Franks, Chairman of the House Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution a member of the House Armed Services Committee
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert, Vice Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security
  • Rep. Tom Rooney, Deputy Majority Whip and member of the House Armed Services Committee
  • Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee’s Oversight Subcommittee

Justice Dept. Inspector General investigates FBI, CAIR ties

Reblogged from The Counter Jihad Report

By Neil Munro at Daily Caller

The Justice Department’s inspector general is investigating the FBI’s contacts with the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

The investigation comes amid increased pressure from Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf to end formal and informal contacts between FBI officials and CAIR.

The White House, however, is prodding federal agencies to meet with CAIR, which has close ties to Islamist groups, such as HAMAS. “There is hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” George Selim, the White House’s new director for community partnerships, told The Daily Caller June 7.

“I was was shocked, but not surprised” at the news about the White House’s outreach to CAIR, Wolf told TheDC on Monday.

“For the administration to be meeting with these people is disappointing and shocking, but … the administration is disappointing,” Wolf said.

CAIR is especially controversial because of its many links to the theocratic Muslim Brotherhood, whose political wing is set to dominate Egyptian politics since the 2011 departure of Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak.

In 2009 a judge confirmed the Justice Department’s decision to name CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation conspiracy to smuggle funds to HAMAS, which is a jihadi affiliate of the Egypt-based brotherhood. Five men in the smuggling ring were sentenced to jail in 2009, including two who were given 65-year sentences. Five current or former CAIR employees have been jailed or deported for terror-related offenses.

Wolf has sponsored language in a pending House measure that pressures the FBI to sever relations with CAIR.

“The [appropriations] committee understands that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has an existing policy prohibiting its employees from engaging in any formal non-investigative cooperation with CAIR [and] the committee encourages the attorney general to adopt a similar policy for all department officials,” said the committee report accompanying the 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill, passed in mid-May by the House.

The Justice Department’s IG began investigating the FBI’s contacts with CAIR in March. Spokesman Jay Lerner declined to provide any details about the investigation, but pointed to a short passage in the IG’s semiannual report to Congress, released April 30.

“The OIG is reviewing interactions between FBI field offices and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The review will determine if these interactions were in compliance with FBI policy and guidance that restricts certain interactions with CAIR,” said IG Michael Horowitz.

The FBI has contacts with many groups, said FBI spokesman Chris Allen. “But CAIR is not a group that we work with,” he said.

The funds in the Holy Land operation were intended for HAMAS, which controls the Gaza Strip between Egypt and Israel. HAMAS has launched thousands of missile attacks against Jewish residents in Israel, because it believes Israel’s territory should be ruled by Muslims.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper declined to comment.

The outreach to CAIR is controversial because of CAIR’s ties to HAMAS, but also because it is part of a controversial effort by the White House to cooperate with various Muslim groups in the United States.
