Investigative Project on Terrorism: CAIR's Hamas Ties Prompt FBI Cut Off


To: NATIONAL EDITORS

Contact: Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, +1-202-363-8602, stopterror@aol.com

WASHINGTON, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The FBI has cut off communications with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in the wake of damning court evidence that ties the group's founders to a Hamas-support network in America, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned.

It is a stunning rebuke to the organization which promotes itself as "arguably the most visible and public American Muslim organization." The decision to end contacts with CAIR was made quietly last summer as federal prosecutors prepared for a second trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), an Islamic charity convicted in November for illegally routing money to Hamas. CAIR was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the case.

Its name appears on a roster of "Palestine Committee" members. Evidence in the case shows the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas's parent organization, created the Palestine Committee to help Hamas politically and financially. CAIR founders Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad, who remains the executive director, also appear on a telephone list of Palestine Committee members. The men also participated in a secret 1993 gathering of Hamas members and supporters called to discuss ways to "derail" U.S.-led peace efforts between Israelis and Palestinians.

The IPT obtained a letter from the FBI's Oklahoma City field office, which explained that a meeting with local Muslim groups had to be postponed due to restrictions on CAIR's access. For that to change, wrote James E. Finch, special agent in charge of the FBI's Oklahoma City field office, "certain issues must be addressed to the satisfaction of the FBI. Unfortunately, these issues cannot be addressed at the local level and must be addressed by the CAIR National Office in Washington, D.C."

FBI spokesman John Miller confirmed the letter's existence. Sources indicate similar correspondence was issued by other field offices.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism is a non-profit research group founded by Steven Emerson in 1995. It is recognized as the world's most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups. For more than a decade, the IPT has investigated the operations, funding, activities and front groups of Islamic terrorist and extremist groups in the United States and around the world.

Dude I'm totally going to delete the above soon. WHAT GARBAGE!!? Since when is STeven Emerson an expert on ANYTHING? And HE releases this press report??! What an IDIOT. I seriously have no words....

This is the guy who has self-proclaimed himself a terrorism expert on every TV channel he can get himself on since 9/11. He has also gone around saying every Muslim organization... and I mean he's gone through every single one... AND EVERY MOSQUE in the UNITED STATES is harboring terrorists ready to attack the US. I think at one time he tried to sue CAIR as welll sooooooooo what the heck... conflict of interest here huh... or REVENGE... ughhh

IPT obtained??? like since when is he a press agency, journalist OR even a man of any morality or ethics!!!
