President Donald J. Trump
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear President Trump,
I respectfully request that you conduct an investigation to determine if the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) should be designated as a terrorist organization.
The United Arab Emirates’ ministerial cabinet listed the Council on American-Islamic Relations as one of 83 banned terrorist organizations on November 15, 2014.
Many Council on American Islamic Relations officials have been sentenced to prison and/or deported for supporting terrorism. These CAIR officials include: Ghassan Elashi - founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, Mousa Abu Marzook, Randall Royer - CAIR’s former civil rights coordinator, Bassem Khafagi - CAIR’s former community relations director, Rabih Haddad - a former CAIR fundraiser, Siraj Wahhaj - CAIR’s advisory board member, Muthanna Al-Hanooti - former head of CAIR's Michigan branch and Nabil Sadoun - a former CAIR board member.
Numerous CAIR officials have defended terrorists. Hussam Ayloush, CAIR L.A. director, blamed America for the San Bernardino terrorist attack. Ahmed Bedier, then CAIR Tampa director, defended Sami Al Arian who was indicted and plead to federal charges of raising support for Palestine Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a terrorist organization.
In 2007, the United States Department of Justice named CAIR as “unindicted co-conspirators” in a criminal conspiracy to financially support Hamas in United States vs Holy Land Foundation. Then Attorney General Eric Holder refused to deliver documents in the United States vs Holy Land Foundation case regarding CAIR to Congress. On January 1, 2017, CAIR leader Imraan Siddique called on President Obama to pardon Muslims convicted in the largest Islamic terrorism financing trial in American history, United States vs. Holy Land Foundation.
Many CAIR leaders proclaim support for Hamas and Islamic imperialism over the United States.
Omar Ahmad, Chairman and founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, told a Muslim crowd "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." At the Islamic Association of Palestine’s third annual convention in Chicago in November 1999, Omar Ahmad gave a speech at a youth session praising suicide bombers who kill themselves for Islam. "Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam — that is not suicide. They kill themselves for Islam," he said.
CAIR is working hard to make Sharia law legal in the United States. Sharia law is antithetical to the rights afforded all Americans under the United States Constitution. Among many other pro-Sharia legislative actions, CAIR issued a press release on March 1, 2012 titled “CAIR Releases Community Toolkit to Challenge 'Anti-Sharia' Bills.” CAIR started a nationwide campaign in 2012 to fight for Sharia to be legal in America.
Please determine if CAIR should be designated as a terrorist organization.
