C.A.I.R.: COUNCIL ON AMERICAN-ISLAMIC RELATIONS has been named as an "UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR" in a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE MOSLEM TERRORIST GROUP HAMAS...One of three prominenet moslem organizations in the United States that have spread their tentacles far & wide...
The same HAMAS that is being supported by IRAN:
1) Iran Pledges Financial Support for Hamas-Run Palestinian Authority
2) Iran's Khamenei calls on Islamic govts to support Hamas
3) Egypt threatened by Iranian support for Hamas
HAMAS = "Harakat Al-Muqawama Al-Islamia" = Islamic Resistance Movement &and a word meaning zeal
And now for M.P.A.C. [Muslim Plublic Affairs Council]:
In a November 1997 speech at the University of Pennsylvania, MPAC Co-Founder and Executive Director Salam Al-Marayati steadfastly refused to call Hezbollah a terrorist organization; he justified the existence of Hamas as a political entity and a provider of social programs and "educational operations"; and he equated jihad with the sentiments of the American statesman Patrick Henry, whose "Give me liberty or give me death" declaration was, in Al-Marayati's view, "a way of looking at the term jihad from an American perspective." In a 1999 position paper, MPAC justified Hezbollah's deadly 1983 bombing of the American Marine barracks in Lebanon as a "military operation" rather than a terrorist attack. As Maher Hathout puts it: "Hezbollah is fighting for freedom, an organized army, limiting its operations against military people, this is a legitimate target against occupation. … this is legitimate, this is an American value -- freedom and liberty."
MPAC's worldview is further revealed by its many additional public statements on a wide array of issues and events:
After a series of arrests made in connection with an August 2006 airline terror scare in London, President Bush called the uncovered plot "a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation." MPAC spokeswoman Edina Lekovic reacted, "When the people we need most in the fight against terrorism, American Muslims, feel alienated by the President's characterization of these supposed terrorists, that does more damage than good."
According to MPAC: "Israel was established by terrorism"; its founding "involved the unjust and illegal usurpation of Muslim and Christian land and rights"; and "to recognize the legitimacy of that crime is a crime in itself."
MPAC characterizes Israel as a "racist, chauvinistic and militaristic" state that is prosecuting "a war to steal land from Palestinians, to decimate their leadership, to humiliate the Palestinian people."
Condemning Israel's "apartheid-like ideology," MPAC warns: "History
shows that Muslim and Christian religious rights are not safe under Israeli occupation."
Israelis are "the worst terrorists in the world," says MPAC, "… Yet Israel is not found on the list of state sponsors of terrorism in the [U.S.] State Department Report on Terrorism."
MPAC co-sponsored pro-Palestinian rallies in the fall of 2000, where MPAC speakers chanted "Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jews, the Army of Muhammed is coming for you!" The rally featured literature and many placards calling for the annihilation of the Jews and Israel.
A few hours after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, MPAC Co-Founder Salam
Al-Marayati told a Los Angeles talk radio audience: "If we're going to look
at suspects, we should look at the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies."
On November 30, 2002, MPAC Vice Chairman Aslam Abdullah said:
"Those who are part of the political Zionist movement in America … know it very well that without the support of the United States … their country, namely Israel, would not be able to pursue its apartheid and racist policies in the Middle East. They will use every means possible to ensure that American administration stays on their side. They will create false enemies, they will distort facts, they will manipulate events; and they will concoct and fabricate lies. They have taken America hostage."
MPAC was a signatory to a MAY 20, 2004 Joint Muslims/Arab-American Statement on Israeli Violence in Gaza, which "strongly condemn[ed]" Israel's "indiscriminate killings of innocent Palestinians, including many children," and its "demolition of Palestinian homes" -- but made no mention of Arab terrorism.
On March 23, 2005, MPAC National Director Ahmed Younis spoke at a Muslim
Students' Association-sponsored event, where he explained that because Adolf Eichmann was himself a Jew, it could accurately be said that Jews had killed themselves in the Holocaust.
MPAC endorsed a November 1, 2001 document characterizing the 9/11 attacks as a legal matter to be addressed by criminal-justice procedures rather than military means. Ascribing the hijackers' motives to alleged social injustices against which they were protesting, this document called on the United States "to promote fundamental rights around the world."
MPAC speakers regularly complain that the U.S. is "dominated" by Zionists and favors Jews over Muslims.
Opposed to efforts to shut down Islamic charities that fund terrorism -- alleging that such efforts interfere with freedom of religion and the exercise of the Muslim obligation to give to charity -- MPAC states that the U.S. government should instead investigate what it terms Jewish "terrorists" like the Jewish Defense League. The Council signed and sponsored a petition to reinstate the assets of Hamas' charitable front, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, after it was designated as a front for terrorist financing.
According to MPAC, "A major threat to the safety of the Muslim community is the Islam-bashing that has been very evident since 9/11. There has been a steady stream of attacks on the Quran … These attacks are vicious, mean-spirited, and politically motivated. … [T]he most sustained and vitriolic [attacks] are from right-wing Christian groups led by Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson."
The MPAC 2002 Annual Banquet featured Ali Al-Mazrui, a SUNY-Binghamton professor who said: "There is also suspicion that some members of the Bush administration in collusion with Israel are more than ready to plunge the Middle East into turmoil in the hope that the final outcome would be to the territorial advantage of Israel and the strategic advantage of the United States. All this is part of the emerging external sadism of the United States, a readiness to hurt others abroad."
In a May 7, 2004 statement, MPAC said: "The scandal of Abu Ghraib was
not an isolated incident but a manifestation of hate rooted in a distortion of American culture. The soldiers charged for torturing and sexually humiliating Iraqi prisoners were reflecting, among other things, an irrational hatred against Arabs and Muslims. Hatred in Abu Ghraib is inextricably linked with hatred increasingly fostered by some elements of our government, our media, and other major national institutions."
After having read the DISCLOSURES above, you are now ready to read the following articles concerning statements made by two 'moderate' moslem organizations in the United States:
Muslim Groups Urge US to End 'Uncritical Support for Israel's Brutal Actions'
(CNSNews.com) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) issued a joint statement Thursday condemning Israel's attacks on the Gaza Strip. The attacks stem from continuing Palestinian provocation. In the past two days, in an attempt to wipe out Palestinian rocket-launching cells, Israeli has conducted air strikes that have killed more than two dozen Palestinians, some of them civilians and children. In a statement, CAIR and MPAC said, "The killing of civilians on either side of this tragic conflict only serves to deepen mutual hostility and mistrust. We condemn all attacks on Palestinian or Israeli civilians and urge President Bush to address the humanitarian crisis, and end our nation's uncritical support for Israel's brutal and counterproductive actions." CAIR has positioned itself as a Muslim counterweight to the U.S. Israeli lobby. Meanwhile, Israel is believed to be planning a full-scale invasion of the Gaza Strip, following days of continuing rocket attacks on its territory. One Israeli died in a rocket attack on Sderot on Wednesday; several other people have been injured, including a woman whose home was hit on Friday. Pressure is growing inside Israel for the government to do something that will stop the incessant rocket attacks -- on civilians.

May I remind the people of C.A.I.R. & M.P.A.C. that the United States is not their nation but ISLAM & THE UMMAH ARE THEIR NATION...
Their first ALLEGIANCE IS NOT TO THE FLAG IT IS TO ALLAH...
There is no such principle within Islam that says you have to obey any laws other than what Allah (SWT) has revealed. It is outrageous to claim that the “law-of-the-land” supersedes the Sharia laws, if so then what value and authority does the Sharia laws have?
As Muslims, our allegiance is only to Allah (SWT) and His messenger and the Muslim Ummah (community). This is something expected from any community, Jews, Christians, atheists, agnostics, etc each would observe allegiance to their own community. So expecting the MCB to show its allegiance towards the Muslims is
not only natural but demanded by the Sharia very clearly.
The obvious implication is that we are prohibited from fighting against Muslims in alliance with the non-Muslims. For those who fought under the American flag in the first Gulf war committed a clear act of Kufr and apostasy. May Allah (SWT) give them their just reward in this life and the hereafter. Similarly those Muslims joining up to fight fellow Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq have committed similar acts of highest treachery, Kufr and apostasy.
"As Muslims, our allegiance is only to Allah (SWT) and His messenger and the Muslim Ummah (community)"
