ZOA: CAIR wants Quran to be highest authority in America
Why does a Jewish publication give space to an organization that supports and raises funds for those who wish to destroy Israel and the Jewish people? It was shocking to see the letter in the April 26 issue of the Heritage Florida Jewish News from CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations). The letter was in reply to a letter written by Sandi Solomon published in your April 12 issue.
Anyone can research the activities of CAIR on the Internet.
Quoted from ZOA (Zionist Organization of America): “CAIR is a Saudi-funded Islamist group whose officials have voiced support for terrorist movements like Hamas. CAIR’s founder is on record praising suicide bombers and saying he would like the Quran to be the highest authority in America. CAIR officials have been indicted for funneling money to foreign terrorists and been found urging the replacement of the Constitution with the Quran. The FBI demonstrated during the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator. It also emerged in that trial that CAIR is a local front organization for Hamas, a U.S.-designated terror organization that has murdered over 500 Israelis in scores of suicide bombings, sniper and rocket assaults and whose Charter calls for the destruction of Israel (Article 15) and the murder of Jews (Article 7). …”
ZOA national president Morton A. Klein said, “It is vitally important that the long neglect of Islamist organizations operating in the U.S., like CAIR, be replaced by proactive investigation and exposure. For too long, CAIR and other Islamist lobbies have been courted by government, law enforcement agencies, civil liberties groups and religious bodies.”
We must all be vigilant to safeguard Israel, the Jewish people and our freedoms here at home.
