Four House Republicans on Wednesday accused the nation’s largest Muslim advocacy group of trying to “infiltrate” Capitol Hill by placing interns in the offices of lawmakers who handle national security issues.
The four lawmakers, members of the anti-terror caucus, asked for an investigation into the Council on American Islamic Relations after discovering an internal memo noting the group’s strategy. They also highlighted a new book by Paul Sperry titled “Muslim Mafia,” scheduled for release on Thursday, which claims the group has been actively infiltrating Congress.
Reps. Sue Myrick of North Carolina, Trent Franks of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and John Shadegg of Arizona asked the Internal Revenue Service to determine whether CAIR deserves its nonprofit status. They also are asking their colleagues to review a summary of findings that led the Justice Department to name CAIR as a co-conspirator in a terrorism case.
The internal memo, provided to FOXNews.com, stated that CAIR would “focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community.”
The memo cited three House committees — Homeland Security, Intelligence and the Judiciary — as panels on which lawmakers preside over policy affecting American Muslims.
“We will develop national initiatives such as a lobby day and placing Muslim interns in Congressional offices,” the memo read.
Earlier this year the FBI severed its once-close ties with CAIR as evidence mounted of the group’s links to a support network for Hamas, which the U.S. has designated a terrorist organization.
The fact that CAIR has infiltrated the legislature, is not surprising. Our government has bent over backwards accomodating muslim extremists.
Muslim extremists in the Pentagon.
Islamist infiltration into the U.S. educational system.
U.S. companies hosting terrorist websites.
Jihadists running for public office.
Radical muslims IN office.
Islamic radicals at the Army War College.
American politicians honoring terrorists.
Our State Department has ties to terrorists for “muslim outreach”.
And Homeland Security helps out jihadists at our universities.
Why not just install a Department of Sharia to oversee the final phase in the transformation to a Caliphate?
I bet Obama has a plan in effect to create let the Hadjis take an active part in dictating our foreign policy in the war on terrorism….oh wait, he already did:
Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.
……Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was “oversimplified” and the majority of women around the world associate it with “gender justice”.
The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.
The group believes in the non-violent (?) destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.
Mogahed appeared alongside Hizbut Tahrir’s national women’s officer, Nazreen Nawaz.
During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular “man-made law” and the West’s “lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism”.
They called for Sharia Law to be “the source of legislation” and said that women should not be “permitted to hold a position of leadership in government”.
In a dissertation titled : Framing the War on Terror, she tried to excuse muslim violence by drawing a perverted correlation between the riots and murders over the Danish cartoons of Mohammad, and the Black civil rights struggle in the 1960’s.
She also claimed, “The real difference between those who condone terrorist acts and all others is about politics, not piety”.
That’s bullshit on stilts, given the fact that the Islamic religion is incorporated into terrorist doctrine.
Jesustapdancingchrist. If the fucking bozos in charge of national security and the government had any brains, they’d be even more dangerous than they are now. Islam is diametrically opposed to each and every principle in our Bill of Rights and Constitution. It’s incongruous with human rights, liberty, and every principle America was founded on. It figures that the Leftwing Dhimmi tools don’t think twice about allowing this to happen.
