New ‘Islamophobia’ Report Authors Linked to Hamas Terrorists

Islamofauxbia. The “report” is a hitlist and incitement to murder.

Excerpts from: New Islamophobia Report: Authors Linked to Hamas

A new report on the so-called “Islamophobia Network” has been released, authored by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the leader of American Muslims for Palestine — two groups with ties to Hamas financiers and a vivid history of extremism, slander and deception.

Here are three facts about the authors:

Both are linked to Hamas financiers based on prosecutions by the U.S. government.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), as explained in our factsheet, has a history of Islamist extremism including links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, the Justice Department labeled CAIR an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a Hamas-financing trial and listed CAIR as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.

The other official author is the University of California-Berkeley Center for Race and Gender. If you look more closely, you’ll see that the responsible section of the center is the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project. So, who was the real author from the University’s staff?

The aforementioned project is led by Dr. Hatem Bazian, chairman of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), co-founder of Zaytuna College and co-founder of Students for Justice in Palestine. Click either of those two links to learn about the history of Bazian and his organization.

Bazian’s AMP has extensive links to the same Brotherhood/Hamas circle that CAIR does.

It is their financing that is suspect.

It is CAIR and AMP, not the “Islamophobia Network,” that is closely associated with extremist and even terrorist financing.

They believe in lying and media manipulation.

Islamist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas lie all the time. Islamist texts regularly justify or even mandate deception, particularly when dealing with perceived adversaries of the Muslim world (as they surely view the “Islamophobia Network”).

Two of CAIR’s founders, including its current executive director, were at a secret Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood meeting in Philadelphia in 1993. The transcripts show the participants, including one of CAIR’s co-founders, emphasizing using deception to influence American public opinion and how to play tricks with semantics. There was no room for interpretation.

MIM: The City Council of Philadelphia and the Council on American Islamic Relations are co sponsoring an Islamist event at City Hall entitled “Thomas Jefferson’s Quran-Islam And The Founders”. Muslim Councilman Curtis Jones is hosting the event and has exploited his position as City Councilman to further Islamist causes under the auspices of the CCP and on the premises of the City Hall.

“Professor Denise Spellberg, noted scholar of Islam, will discuss her book Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an at this luncheon. She offers a meticulously researched and incredibly detailed account not only of how Jefferson came to acquire a copy of the Qur’an in English but also of the broader historical circumstances of his political career and the role of religion in the period of the founding fathers.

“Imam W. Deen Mohammed’s vision was to see a community of people working together using the wisdom Allah blessed him to share with us to organize, motivate, and empower Muslims, Christians, Jews, African Americans, Hispanics, indeed all of humanity to rise up and establish the earth as a paradise for all and defeat the schemes of the wicked devils who rob, enslave, and manipulate the people to keep the earth’s treasures for themselves.

This vision includes the evolution and elevation of the African American; the Bilalian, from a people crushed into dust and then remade into a new people on the planet (there has never been any people like the “Negro” in the history of mankind) that have been fashioned and prepared by Allah to rise up to the plane of the prophets to inspire and be a force for the struggle for freedom, justice, equality, and fulfillment for all…”

“…To accomplish his mission, Imam Mohammed had to figure out how to impregnate the new soul of the African American with the enlightened wisdom of the Qur’an and the prophets in order to complete the evolution of this people. The enlightened wisdom will produce and intellect that when married to the “Dynamic African American” soul, as Imam Mohammed referred to it, would generate the kind of human that can be a factor for bringing about the vision of the prophets, which is the vision of Imam Mohammed.

So, Imam Mohammed had to start his mission where he found himself, as the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI). He had to transform the teachings of the Nation of Islam; change the teachings of his father, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in order to put the new knowledge into the people…”

Excerpt:

“…There had been much excitement over Congressman Ellison using Jefferson’s Koran for his ceremonial swearing-in. Jefferson’s Koran had been declared an official Koran by Ellison and President Obama. Yet this translation of the Koran had been done by a non-Muslim who not only considered Islam to be a manmade religion “that it owed its progress and establishment almost entirely to the sword,” but who also considered Muhammad to be a charlatan, and the Koran itself to be false and a forgery…”.

And the author mentioned above, Denise Spellberg forced Random House to cancel a book about Islam – ‘Jewel of Medina’, after all but acting as caliph and essentially calling on Muslims to wage jihad on the book publisher (whom she was contracted with to write the Jefferson’s Koran) for violating the sharia:

“She thinks there is a very real possibility of major danger for the building and staff and widespread violence,” Ms. Garrett wrote. “Denise [Spellberg] says it is ‘a declaration of war . . . explosive stuff . . . a national security issue.’

Terror-linked Muslim Group CAIR Met with Congress 325 Times in 2016

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group identified by the Justice Department as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and designated as terrorists by the United Arab Emirates, boasts of having 325 meetings with members of Congress or their staff over the last year.

The group says it also enjoyed $3 million worth free advertising through media appearances this year alone, resulting in 50 million views of its work.

CAIR’s fundraising video boasts that there were 14,000 mentions of CAIR on radio or television this year alone, and that it has a database of 1.6 million media contacts to use. The organization said it has 65 trained spokespeople, 29 offices and 35 full-time lawyers.

Fed Govt Sued for Authorizing Facebook, Twitter, YouTube to Censor “Anti-Islam” Speech

In other words, enforcing sharia. Source: Federal Government Authorizes Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to Censor “Anti-Islam” Speech; Lawsuit Filed | American Freedom Law Center

Today, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) under the First Amendment.

Section 230 provides immunity from lawsuits to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, thereby permitting these social media giants to engage in government-sanctioned censorship and discriminatory business practices free from legal challenge.

The lawsuit was brought on behalf of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and Jihad Watch.

As alleged in the lawsuit, Geller and Spencer, along with the organizations they run, are often subject to censorship and discrimination by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube because of Geller’s and Spencer’s beliefs and views, which Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube consider expression that is offensive to Muslims.

Such discrimination, which is largely religion-based in that these California businesses are favoring adherents of Islam over those who are not, is prohibited in many states, but particularly in California by the state’s anti-discrimination law, which is broadly construed to prohibit all forms of discrimination.  However, because of the immunity granted by the federal government, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are free to engage in their otherwise unlawful, discriminatory practices.

As set forth in the lawsuit, Section 230 of the CDA immunizes businesses such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube from civil liability for any action taken to “restrict access to or availability of material that” that they “consider[] to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected.”

Robert Muise, AFLC co-founder and senior counsel, issued the following statement:

“Section 230 of the CDA confers broad powers of censorship upon Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube officials, who can silence constitutionally protected speech and engage in discriminatory business practices with impunity by virtue of this power conferred by the federal government in violation of the First Amendment.”

Muise went on to explain:

“Section 230 is a federal statute that alters the legal relations between our clients and Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, resulting in the withdrawal from our clients of legal protections against private acts.  Consequently, per U.S. Supreme Court precedent, state action lies in our clients’ challenge under the First Amendment.”

David Yerushalmi, AFLC co-founder and senior counsel, added:

“Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have notoriously censored speech that they deem critical of Islam, thereby effectively enforcing blasphemy laws here in the United States with the assistance of the federal government.”

Yerushalmi concluded:

“It has been the top agenda item of Islamic supremacists to impose such standards on the West.  Its leading proponents are the Muslim Brotherhood’s network of Islamist activist groups in the West and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which co-sponsored, with support from Obama and then-Secretary of State Clinton, a U.N. resolution which called on all nations to ban speech that could promote mere hostility to Islam.  Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are falling in line, and we seek to stop this assault on our First Amendment freedoms.”

Florida: Palm Beach County replaces terror-linked Boca Raton mosque as presidential polling site (updated)

Source: Palm Beach elections supervisor replaces Islamic Center of Boca Raton polling site | Naked Politics

The Islamic Center of Boca Raton is no longer a polling site following a news report by Gossip Extra which stated that it had drawn complaints.

“The site has been replaced with a library,” Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher told the Miami Herald in a one-sentence email.

Bucher, who is a Democrat, didn’t respond to other questions by the Herald including if her decision was driven by complaints. The site is still listed on the elections office’s list of polling locations.

Jose Lambiet’s Gossip Extra reported earlier today that dozens of voters had called Bucher to complain about the new site. Lambiet wrote that the center was co-founded by Ibrahim Dremali, an Imam who was known to openly raise money for the terror anti-Israel group Hamas. Dremali has since moved to Texas. Lambiet reported that Bucher was reconsidering whether to use the site for the Nov. 8 presidential election.

Representatives at the Islamic Center could not be immediately reached for comment Thursday.


As posted by Gossip Extra:

The center was co-founded by Ibrahim Dremali, an Imam who was known to openly raise money for the terror anti-Israel group Hamas.

Dremali, who has since moved to Austin, Texas, told a crowd at a Miami rally where Israeli flags were burned: “With jihad we’ll claim our land, Zionist blood will wet the sand.” He told folks “not to be sad for those who were martyred, and to not be afraid to die for what [they] believe in.”

Wait, there’s more.

Another co-founder was Florida Atlantic University professor Bassem Al Halabi, who’s now the mosque’s president.


More on Dremali:   Imam and wife arrested on immigration fraud charges

An imam with ties to mosques in Florida and Iowa has been arrested on immigration fraud charges.

A Muslim religious leader and his wife have been charged with engaging in fraudulent marriages to others to gain U.S. citizenship.Investigators say Ibrahim Abdelrahman Dremali and Safaa Rashad Eissa of Arlington, Texas, were married in Egypt before either came to the United States. He arrived in 1989 and she in 1991.

Both married U.S. citizens in Florida and divorced within a few years, the report said. They were married again to each other in Florida shortly after Eissa’s 1997 divorce, officials said.

Dremali testified on behalf of Adham Amin Hassoun during a 2002 bond hearing, attesting to Hassoun’s “peaceful and generous” character. Hassoun would later be indicted for “actively recruiting mujahideen fighters and raising funds for violent jihad” and conspiracy to murder, kidnap, and maim persons in a foreign country,” in order to “advance violent jihad,” including “murder, kidnapping, and maiming,” to establish “Islamic states under Sharia.”

Hassoun was convicted in 2007.

More on Halabi: Florida Atlantic Univ ‘Islamophobia Forum’ Features Terror-linked Muslim Panel

Bassem Alhalabi has been an Associate Professor at FAU’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering, since August 2002. Prior to arriving at FAU, Alhalabi was located in Tampa at the University of South Florida (USF), working as an assistant to USF Professor Sami al-Arian, while al-Arian was a leader in Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Alhalabi co-authored publications with al-Arian and, when applying to FAU, he used al-Arian as a reference. In May 2006, al-Arian was sentenced to 57 months in prison, after pleading guilty to providing services to PIJ.

Alhalabi has been in trouble with the law, himself. In March 2010, Alhalabi was arrested for physically assaulting two individuals during a Muslim Capitol Day function in Tallahassee, Florida. The assaults took place an hour apart from one another. And in June 2003, the US Department of Commerce charged Alhalabi with illegally shipping a $13,000 military-grade thermal imaging device to Syria, a state sponsor of terrorism.

Alhalabi is a Director and co-founder of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR). During his leadership, for three years, the ICBR website had an essay prominently posted on it, stating, “Jews are people of treachery and betrayal… As the Muslims and Jews are enemies residing in opposing religious and doctrinal camps, it is not possible for them to be brought together unless one is made to submit to the other by force… [Muhammad] said, ‘You will fight the Jews and will prevail over them, so that a rock will say, O Muslim! There is Jew behind me, kill him!’”

CAIR Marking Americans for Murder with ‘Islamophobia’ List, Say Critics

‘…the release was delayed six days because a Muslim murdered 49 Americans in Orlando, Florida.’

WhosFundingCAIR

One of those critics is a Muslim, another is an ex-Muslim. Source: CAIR’s ‘Islamophobia’ List Is a ‘Hit List,’ Say Critics – Breitbart

by Neil Munro

Americans are being marked for murder whenever their names appear on the annual list of so-called “Islamophobes” posted by the jihad-linked Council on American Islamic Relations, say two Americans on CAIR’s 2016 enemies list. 

“This is a hit list,” said Nonie Darwish, a former Egyptian Muslim, now living in America. CAIR “should be held legally responsible for inciting violence against us,” she said, after citing several Muslims and non-Muslims who have been personally targeted by Muslims sharing CAIR’s Islamic ideology.

“They want to shut us up by putting us in a position of fear,” said Zuhdi Jasser, founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, which is pushing for modernization of Islam in the United States. “Not only does their list put our lives at risk, but it is full of false information [and] they’ve never called us.”

At least two of the people cited in the report have been targeted for murder by jihadis. Pam Geller, who is described by the new report as “Islamophobe Pamela Geller,” has survived two plots attempts because the Muslim attackers were successfully killed by police. Similarly, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an ex-Muslim and a former legislator in Holland, has a security detail to protect her from attacks. 

CAIR’s report “is certainly intended to be [incitement],” said David Yerushalmi, a lawyer at the American Freedom Law Center. “But it is not [punishable] incitement under First Amendment principles,” partly because judges requires an “imminent” threat to justify a charge of incitement, he said.

CAIR’s new report is titled “Confronting Fear“, and it was slated for publication June 14. But on June 12, the release was delayed six days because a Muslim murdered 49 Americans in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

The report lists a series of domestic enemies of Islam, its portrays them as mentally ill phobics, and also conflates occasional attacks and vandalism against Muslim people and buildings with various forms of democratic criticism of Islam. For example, comedian Bill Maher is on the list.

The group defines “Islamophobia” as “a contrived fear or prejudice fomented by the existing Eurocentric and Orientalist global power structure.”

The problem, say Jasser and Darwish, is that CAIR’s message will reach people who believe that opponents of Islam deserve death. In fact, Pam Geller, a favorite hate-figure at the CAIR, has been the subject of at least two jihad plots. Two gunmen were killed by the first attack in May 2015. A second man, who carrying a knife, was killed by FBI officers in Boston in June 2015.

Other critics, such as Robert Spencer, who runs JihadWatch.com, has received myriad death threats from believers in Islam.

Islam’s politicized ‘sharia law’ endorses the murder of Islam’s critics and of ex-Muslims — repeatedly, endlessly, forcefully — and its recommendations are deemed divine commandments by numerous killers and would-be killers.

For example, the Koran — which observant Muslims say is a list of verbatim commands from their deity, Allah — tells Muslims to “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah [penalty tax] willingly while they are humbled.”

Islamic scriptures say that Islam’s reputed founder, Muhammad, personally ordered or supported the death of many enemies, including at 10 critics and poets, who were the pre-modern equivalent of modern journalist and writers — such as the machine-gunned cartoonists at the Paris-based Charlie Hebdo magazine. Traditionalist or orthodox Muslims says Muhammad is a perfect model of behavior and should be emulated by Muslims.

Because of this theological hostility to criticism, “I cannot go to any Islamic majority country — I would be killed on the street, and the killer would be called a hero,” said Darwish.

CAIR is extending those threats into the United States, she said. “The culture of Al Capone is the culture of Islam — when you put up a list of Islamic foes, this is a hit list,” she said. Continue reading

Court: Media’s Fav Muslim Group CAIR Must Stand Trial for Massive Fraud

Source: D.C. Circuit: CAIR Must Stand Trial for Massive Fraud | American Freedom Law Center

The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today unanimously reversed a trial court’s ruling dismissing a fraud case brought against the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  The result of the appellate court’s ruling is that CAIR National, operating out of the District of Columbia, must stand trial and allow a jury to hear all of the evidence of the massive fraud and attempted cover up carried out by CAIR and perpetrated against hundreds of CAIR fraud victims.

In January of last year, Judge Paul Friedman, the federal judge presiding over a five-year old lawsuit alleging that CAIR defrauded hundreds of Muslim and non-Muslim clients, issued a shocking ruling when he summarily dismissed the lawsuit, which was brought in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Immediately, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) and the Law Offices of David Yerushalmi appealed, asking the D.C. Circuit to reverse Judge Friedman and reinstate the plaintiffs’ claims against CAIR.

The appellate court heard oral arguments in February of this year.  Judge Sri Srinivasan, often mentioned as one of the judge’s on the President’s short list to fill a slot on the U.S. Supreme Court, sat as Chief Judge for the 3-judge panel that also included Judge Robert Wilkins, who authored the unanimous decision, and Judge Douglas Ginsburg.

David Yerushalmi, lead counsel for the five plaintiffs in the two consolidated cases alleging that CAIR hired a fake lawyer who defrauded the CAIR clients, explained the decisiveness of the appellate court’s ruling:

“The Court of Appeals not only reversed the trial court, sending the case back for a jury trial, but it carefully went through each fact we argued Judge Friedman either dismissed out-of-hand or ignored completely to justify his clearly erroneous ruling, explaining further why each fact supports our claims against CAIR.”

CAIR, a self-described Muslim public interest law firm, was previously named as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the federal criminal trial and conviction of a terrorist funding cell organized around one of the largest Muslim charities, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF).  HLF raised funds for violent jihad on behalf of Hamas, and top CAIR officials were part of the conspiracy.  In addition, several of CAIR’s top executives have been convicted of terror-related crimes.  As a result, the FBI publicly announced that it has terminated any outreach activities with the national organization, which bills itself as “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization.”

The two lawsuits dismissed by Judge Friedman, which were consolidated by the court because they arose out of the same facts, follow an earlier lawsuit that had also alleged that CAIR’s fraudulent conduct amounted to racketeering, a federal RICO crime.  In that case, the court dismissed the RICO counts, concluding that CAIR’s conduct as alleged was fraudulent but not a technical violation of RICO.

The pending lawsuits allege that Morris Days, the “Resident Attorney” and “Manager for Civil Rights” at the now defunct CAIR-MD/VA chapter in Herndon, Virginia, was in fact not an attorney and that he failed to provide legal services for clients who came to CAIR for legal representation.  As alleged, CAIR knew of this fraud and purposefully conspired with Days to keep the CAIR clients from discovering that their legal matters were being mishandled or not handled at all.  Furthermore, the complaints allege that according to CAIR internal documents, there were hundreds of victims of the CAIR fraud scheme.

According to court documents, CAIR knew or should have known that Days was not a lawyer when it hired him.  But, like many criminal organizations, things got worse when CAIR officials were confronted with clear evidence of Days’ fraudulent conduct.  Rather than come clean and attempt to rectify past wrongs, CAIR conspired with its Virginia Chapter to conceal and further the fraud.

To this end, CAIR officials purposefully concealed the truth about Days from their clients, law enforcement, the Virginia and D.C. state bar associations, and the media.  When CAIR did get irate calls from clients about Days’ failure to provide competent legal services, CAIR fraudulently deceived their clients about Days’ relationship to CAIR, suggesting he was never actually employed by CAIR, and even concealing the fact that CAIR had fired him once some of the victims began threatening to sue.

While Judge Friedman agreed that Days and CAIR’s Virginia chapter were liable for fraud, he concluded, after improperly weighing the evidence, that CAIR National in D.C., the named defendant in the lawsuit, was not responsible for Days’ fraudulent conduct.  The appeals court, however, found that Judge Friedman was wrong on each and every fact raised by the plaintiffs, concluding, contrary to Judge Friedman, that each fact supports finding a direct relationship between CAIR National and Days.

David Yerushalmi, who is also AFLC’s co-founder and senior counsel, remarked:

“CAIR engaged in a massive criminal fraud in which literally hundreds of CAIR clients have been victimized.  In his ruling, Judge Friedman inexplicably ignored material facts that establish CAIR National’s liability and then engaged in a transparently disingenuous ‘weighing’ of the factual evidence he did address, which is patently improper when evaluating cross-motions for summary judgment.  We are thankful that the appeals court has rectified the trial court’s errors.  Now, at long last, our clients will go before a jury and get their day in court.”

Robert Muise, co-founder and senior counsel of AFLC, added,

“This ruling is a significant victory.  Not only does it reinstate our claims against CAIR, but it makes plain that we have an incredibly strong case to present to a jury.  In short, CAIR has no way out.  It is a fraudulent organization, and we will get a chance to prove that to a jury.”


Terror-linked CAIR has also chosen to represent the Orlando jihadi’s family and mosque suspects as well as the Muslim refugees who sexually assaulted a 5-year old girl in Twin Falls, Idaho.
