Islam and the USA/Muslim Mafia

Islam     Session Thirty-One

Item #7, Bullet 4 of outline:  Islam and the USA/Muslim Mafia  

The Muslim Mafia is a term derived from “Ikhwan mafia” which is another name for the Muslim Brotherhood.  Of course, when speaking of the Muslim Brotherhood the more than forty offshoot organizations created by the Brotherhood must be included. According to an article published on the WND website (; 10/14/2009) and authored by Joseph Farah:  “CAIR, reveals ‘Muslim Mafia,’ is one part of the network of front groups, cut-outs and shell companies that shield the Brotherhood’s criminal activities from authorities.

Probably the most influential organization created by the Muslim Brotherhood is CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations).  Previously (sessions 29&30) the Muslim Brotherhood was covered in some detail.  CAIR was briefly mentioned in session #29 and will be discussed in detail at this point.

CAIR was formed in 1994 as a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), also known as the Islamic Association for Palestine in North America.  The IAP, in turn, had been founded by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1981 as a front for Hamas (also formed by the Muslim Brotherhood).  Hamas is an Islamic terrorist organization which now governs the Gaza Strip and has shelled Israel with more than two thousand rockets, just since 2012.

According to P. David Gaubatz in his book, “Muslim Mafia”, CAIR was needed by those who formed it, because:

“Missing (in America) was a media office savvy enough to seduce both the American media and the government  into looking the other way as they advanced their radical agenda of supporting violent jihad abroad while slowly institutionalizing a Shariah theocracy at home.  They needed a new front group that, in Abu Baker’s words, could give their subversive agenda ‘a media twinkle.’”   (#4, P. 44)

In 2008 Chris Gaubatz, son of P. David Gaubatz, infiltrated the national office of CAIR  in Washington, D.C.  He then gained access to CAIR documents which disclosed the most secret workings of CAIR.  Following are some of the major revelations which have been excerpted from “Muslim Mafia”. (#4, PP. 11-14)

  • CAIR is trying to spring from prison a former headquarters official who trained for jihad with the same Pakistani terrorist group that last year massacred more than 150 people in Mumbai, India.
  • CAIR officials are secretly coaching terrorism suspects and witnesses to withhold information from FBI investigators, and have successfully obstructed at least one investigation in Maryland.
  • CAIR is donating thousands of dollars to the legal defense fund of a Muslim cop killer.
  • CAIR’s visitor logs show the father of an al-Qaida terrorist visited CAIR director Awad several months before he was convicted of plotting to assassinate President Bush.
  • Curiously, the logs do not register any guests around September 11, 2001 – in fact, the entire month of September if blank.
  • CAIR has cultivated Muslim moles inside a Washington-area law enforcement agency, including one who illegally accessed classified FBI records to tip off a terrorist under investigation and another with ties to Pakistani intelligence.
  • A longtime CAIR advisory board member and top fund raiser has preached violent insurrection, including calling on street gangs to lead an “Uzi” jihad in America’s cities.
  • Another man whom CAIR frequently books to speak at its events has exhorted Muslims to hijack U.S. military aircraft, including C-130s transporting the elite 82nd Airborne paratroopers out of Fort Bragg – which happens to be part of the district represented by North Carolina state senator Larry Shaw, who this year took over the reins of CAIR as its new chairman.
  • CAIR is putting books into neighborhood libraries across the country advising men to beat their wives – but only “lightly” – when they disobey them.
  • At the same time, CAIR is lobbying the Justice Department and local law enforcement to exempt Muslim wife-beaters from laws against domestic violence or at least look the other way and let Muslim clerics intervene when Muslims are involved in spousal battery cases – not unlike the one involving a prominent Muslim TV executive who ended up beheading his wife after serial domestic abuse.
  • CAIR’s library package includes a guide to Islam edited by a radical Muslim cleric who cheered the tragic space shuttle Columbia disaster as a “good omen” for Islam and is now behind bars for inciting anti-U.S. warfare.
  • CAIR is running an influence operation against members of key homeland security committees on Capitol Hill and planting Islamist spies inn congressional offices.
  • During the 2004 presidential campaign, CAIR organized a “task force” of other radical Muslim Brotherhood fronts to hammer out a “Muslim platform” that initially included a draft proposal “supporting Islamic groups including Mr. Bin Laden and his associates.”
  • CAIR’s leadership is coordinating political activities during monthly breakfasts with Congressman Ellison, who boasted during a Juma prayer in the Capitol building that they’ll have fifteen Muslims like him in Congress by the next election and then far more after that.
  • CAIR is doing an inordinate amount of political lobbying and campaigning possibly in violation of its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, which restricts such activities.
  • CAIR lists in a “strategy” document marked “Company Proprietary” a long-term goal of “influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community,” including “congressmen on the judiciary, intelligence, and homeland security committees.”
  • CAIR last year (2008) teamed up with a terror-tied Islamic investment bank to attack publicly traded firms who refuse to comply with Shariah law by using shareholder resolutions, divestitures, and boycotts against them.
  • Stung by recent terrorism charges, CAIR is losing members and dues and operating in the red; in fact, it is struggling financially to the point where it has to rent out one of the three floors it operates at its Capitol Hill headquarters.
  • CAIR is suffering from a whopping 50 percent employee turnover rate in the Washington area and a difficult time recruiting new talent.
  • Interns have refused to be formally photographed with CAIR officials for fear of being associated with terrorists and profiled at airports, and some have even removed their CAIR experience from their resume’s.
  • CAIR executives travel regularly to the Middle East to raise cash, and bank wire transfers show Saudi princes have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to CAIR – even as it claims to receive no foreign support.
  • While cash-poor, CAIR is asset-rich, and in recent years has partnered with Arab investors – including a UAE
    defense minister who once equipped Osama bin Laden’s camps in Afghanistan – to finance its headquarters and buy up an alarming number of parcels of property in downtown D.C. while shielding them under a holding company.
  • CAIR tried to muscle out other groups to represent the so-called Flying Imams against US Airways, promising them “large compensation,” and in another revelation, CAIR had a previous history with the lead imam in the case, working with him on a similar stunt that occurred on board an America West flight.
  • CAIR went to extraordinary lengths to shake down Bank of America in a frivolous claim of discrimination involving a Muslim employee, internal strategy documents reveal.
  • In spite of claims it represents all Muslims, CAIR routinely discriminates against Shiites and other Muslims – its own employees – in favor of Sunni Muslims.
  • CAIR is actively training Homeland Security Agents to respect Muslims and Islam, while brainwashing them to think jihad means “internal struggle against sin,” and not holy war, as part of a dangerous disinformation campaign.
  • CAIR quietly removed from its Web site an “Urban Legends” rebuttal it posted in response to growing criticism and terror charges after its falsehoods became transparently and embarrassingly obvious.
  • Desperate for revenue, CAIR tasks its interns with researching and writing grant proposals while providing blatantly false information in grant applications.
  • CAIR privately worries that “major roadblocks” to mainstreaming Islam in America include the religion’s “treatment of women and violence,” but instead of acknowledging misogyny and jihad as problems and disavowing them, CAIR coaches staff to use more effective methods to whitewash over them.
  • CAIR and the ACLU have formed a strategic partnership to target the FBI with “ethnicity related” civil rights complaints.
  • During the recent Lebanon crisis, which saw Israel defend itself from Hezbollah rockets, CAIR actually had the temerity to seriously consider suing the U.S. and Israel under RICO racketeering statutes for “conspiring to commit murder, kidnapping, and property damage, and acts of terrorism.”

The above, taken from CAIR documents, is certainly not descriptive of an organization formed to “further Islamic-American relations” representing the “Religion of Peace.”  In fact, it is descriptive of an organization that blatantly lies about its activities and goals, supports Muslim terrorist organizations and actively seeks to silence any of its critics.

Some specifics that authenticate the revelations listed above:

  • Ibrahim Hooper, who runs CAIR’s propaganda machine has a six-figure annual budget for conducting research against CAIR’s enemies. (#4, PP. 119-121)
  • “The Council on American-Islamic Relations spent $160,000 in an unsuccessful effort to run top-rated nationally syndicated radio host Michael Savage off the air, according to ‘Muslim Mafia.’” (Whistleblower 18 12 December, 2009: 39)
  • Ghassan Elashi, the founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, was charged with giving Hamas more than $12,000,000 while he was running the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) charity. This was the reason CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator by the Justice Department after the HLF’s trial in Dallas.
  • One of many “big” lies: “’Allah is the same God worshiped by Christians and Jews.”  The facts: 
    • Islam proclaims that Jesus is not divine and part of the Trinity (Sura 4:171-172),
    • According to the Koran, Jesus was just a mortal messenger (Sura 4:171-172),
    • The Koran clearly states that Jesus did NOT die on the cross (Sura 4:157-159)
    • Muslims believe that Jesus will return in the end times as the Muslim Jesus and kill the Christian Jesus (The Hadith:  Bukhari 3,34,425)
  • CAIR has conducted “sensitivity training” to teach government officials and law enforcement officers how to interact with Muslims. (#16, P. 104)


Despite its anti-American words and deeds, CAIR is still held in high esteem by some of America’s leaders who have given it ringing endorsements, to wit:

  • “I applaud CAIR’s mission to enhance understanding and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.” –  Senator Paul Sarbanes (D-MD)
  • “Throughout it decade of existence, “CAIR-LA has been instrumental in promoting cultural and religious understanding to the Muslim community . . . I commend CAIR-LA for playing a vital role in the integration of the Muslim community into American society in an effort to promote patriotism and pride in their home country.” – Rep. Gary Miller (R-CA)
  • “In a difficult environment, CAR has much to be proud of. On the key civil rights issues of our time, CAIR has been out front.  Energetic, quick to enter the debate, vigilant, CAIR has earned a reputation as a force to be reckoned with.  Good thing, as the stakes could not be higher.” – Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH)
  • “Since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the Los Angeles FBI has worked closely with CAIR, and a multitude of other community based organizations, to develop and foster relationships that encourage an open exchange of ideas and concerns relative to the FBI’s mission.” – J. Stephen Tidwell, assistant director in charge, Los Angeles, California Field Office of the FBI.
  • “The efforts of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in improving cross cultural communications is commendable.” – Brigadier General Mark Wheeler, Chairman Senior National Representatives Coordination Group, United States Central Command.

There it is: a Muslim organization that is dedicated to bringing America under Sharia Law, that has directly or indirectly funded Muslim terrorist groups, that has successfully thwarted any criticism – and, even though its goals are known, still continues its anti-American activities while being endorsed by leaders of the very nation it works to destroy!

Is it ignorance or complicity at work here that allows CAIR to exist and function, or has the absurdity of political correctness destroyed the common sense of a nation?

Next session we will continue of discussion of Islam and the USA.
