The Case Against CAIR

A few weeks ago I told you about the scrumptious legal dish served up at the annual CAIR banquet. As Congressman Larry Shaw (D-NC) was addressing the faithful, Dave Gaubatz walked to the stage and served CAIR’s national director Nihad Awad with a subpoena.

A tip of my hat to my blogging twin, Dinah Lord, for sending me the link with a continuation of the story.

On Wednesday Front Page Magazine published an interview, titled “The Last Days of CAIR”, with attorney David Yerushalmi.

Four of his plaintiffs were once clients of CAIR, says Yerushalmi, and have filed a federal civil complaint alleging criminal fraud and racketeering against CAIR. Once you read the interview and review the pending charges it becomes clear how this could be the end of CAIR. And if the MSM picks this up and runs with it, CAIR will be finished in the court of public opinion as well.

Yerushalmi is a litigator specializing in securities law, public policy relating to national security, and public interest law. And it’s from this perspective we learn that CAIR’s demise may be on the horizon. Here’s a few interesting snippets from the interview;

What many people don’t realize is that CAIR operates and presents itself as a public interest law firm, much like the ACLU. As a PILF, it must comply with the codes of professional responsibility applicable to lawyers in the jurisdictions in which it operates and keep sacred the fiduciary duty it owes its clients. As the complaint sets out in careful detail, CAIR trampled on its clients and disregarded its professional obligations with a callous and calculating malice.

The named defendants are: the Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network Inc. (dba CAIR); Nihad Awad aka Nihad Hammad who serves as executive director of CAIR National; Parvez Ahmed who was the chairman of the board of CAIR National during the relevant time period; Tahra Goraya who was the national director of CAIR but who has since resigned; Khadijah Athman who is the manager of the “civil rights” division of CAIR; and Nadhira al-Khalili, Esq., who is in-house legal counsel for CAIR.

Also named as defendants are Ibrahim Hooper and Amina Rubin, CAIR’s director of communications and coordinator of communications, respectively. According to the complaint, these two were directly responsible for issuing fraudulent press releases about the Days fraud scheme, thus aiding and abetting the CAIR cover-up.

When reading through the interview, one sees how the islamic spider web interconnects various terror networks and nefarious charities to this soon-to-be-defunct muslim civil rights group. It's a great dialogue and I look forward to their day in court.

I have to wonder what, if any, influence the Obama administration may have on the proceedings.

I expect a very stict and sickening adherence to political correctness from these guys.

I'd have to agree with that Chris. I think a new batch of whimpy, PC prosecutors appointed by BHO will throw this one out. But I hope not.

Oh Janice, I hope not, too but I don't get any kind of terror fighting vibe out of the Obama administration at all.


(thanks for the tip, my dear! ;^)
