CAIR

Radical Islamist

Now that Robert Mueller has been appointed special counsel to investigate if Russia influenced the 2016 presidential election it’s worth reiterating his misguided handiwork and collaboration with radical Islamist organizations as FBI director. Judicial Watch exclusively obtained droves of records back in 2013 documenting how, under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI purged all anti-terrorism training material deemed “offensive” to Muslims after secret meetings between Islamic organizations and the FBI chief. Judicial Watch had to sue to get the records and published an in-depth report on the scandal in 2013 and a lengthier, updated follow-up in 2015.

As FBI director, Mueller bent over backwards to please radical Islamist groups and caved into their demands. The agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and curricula after Mueller met with various Islamist organizations, including those with documented ties too terrorism. Among them were two organizations— Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—named by the U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case.

CAIR is a terrorist front group with extensive links to foreign and domestic Islamists. It was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine.

The records obtained as part of Judicial Watch’s lawsuit show that Mueller, who served 12 years as FBI chief, met with the Islamist organizations on February 8, 2012 to hear their demands. Shortly later the director assured the Muslim groups that he had ordered the removal of presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices nationwide.

The purge was part of a broader Islamist operation designed to influence the opinions and actions of persons, institutions, governments and the public at-large. The records obtained by Judicial Watch also show similar incidents of Islamic influence operations at the Departments of Justice and State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Obama White House.

Here are some of the reasons provided by Mueller’s FBI for getting rid of “offensive” training documents: “Article is highly inflammatory and inaccurately argues the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization.” It’s crucial to note that Mueller himself had previously described the Muslim Brotherhood as a group that supports terrorism in the U.S. and overseas when his agency provided this ludicrous explanation. Here’s more training material that offended the terrorist groups, according to the FBI files provided to Judicial Watch: An article claiming Al Qaeda is “clearly linked” to the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing; The Qur’an is not the teachings of the Prophet, but the revealed word of God; Sweeping generality of ‘Those who fit the terrorist profile best (for the present at least) are young male immigrants of Middle Eastern appearance;’ conflating Islamic Militancy with terrorism. The list goes on and on.

Mueller’s actions have had a widespread effect because many local law enforcement agencies followed the FBI’s lead in allowing Islamic groups like CAIR to dictate what anti-terrorism material could be used to train officers. Among them are police departments in three Illinois cities— Lombard, Elmhurst and Highland Park—as well as the New York Police Department (NYPD).

In the case of the Lombard Police Department, CAIR asserted that the instructor of a training course called “Islamic Awareness as a Counter-Terrorist Strategy” was anti-Muslim though there was no evidence to support it. Like the FBI, Lombard officials got rid of the “offensive” course. The NYPD purged a highly-acclaimed report that’s proven to be a critical tool in terrorism investigations after three New York Muslims, two mosques and an Islamic nonprofit filed a lawsuit.

Considering Mueller’s role in much of this, it makes him a bizarre choice to lead the heated Russia investigation. The goal, apparently, is to determine of Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and if President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian officials. In the Justice Department announcement, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein describes Mueller as person who qualifies to lead the probe because he exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command. “Special Counsel Mueller will have all appropriate resources to conduct a thorough and complete investigation, and I am confident that he will follow the facts, apply the law and reach a just result,” according to Rosenstein.

mosque

A group that held an armed protest at a mosque in Irving, Texas last November is planning a second protest on December 12. The mosque, which is located in Richardson, Texas, was chosen because protest organizers say the mosque is tied to the U.S. based Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) – a group accused by many of being a “terrorist front group” for radical Islam and Jihad.

The Bureau of Islamic-American Relations (BIAR), which organized last month’s protest, was criticized for revealing the names and addresses of Muslims and others who opposed the city of Irving’s support of a Texas legislature bill to ban Sharia law from Texas courts.

BAIR founder David Wright III hosted the group of armed protesters who stood outside of the Irving mosque on November 21. Some protesters openly carried rifles with at least one person openly carrying a pistol, which is illegal in Texas until a new law allowing the practice goes into effect January 1.

Wright claimed that he was within his rights to publish the names and addresses of Muslims and supporters who spoke against the legislation at a March 19 city council meeting in Irving because they spoke on the record at a public government meeting.

Wright also shared his criteria for selecting which mosques to protest. In announcing the next protest at a Richardson, Texas mosque, Write said:

“We do not pick mosques at random.” The group claims the Richardson mosque has a “documented history” of taking in Syrian refugees and working with “terrorist front groups like CAIR.”

“They are Sunni Muslims that have taken over the entire neighborhood and even renamed streets after the Islamic culture.” “Do I need to say anymore?”

Wright drew attention to his actions – especially for releasing list of names and addresses of Muslim opponents to the legislation last week by writing that he was being attacked for exercising his civil rights in defense of his efforts.

And although Wright removed his comments over his decision to disclose the name and address information of his opponents from his Facebook page, The Washington Times posted his comments on their website and quoted below:

“I am being attacked and smeared by the liberal media for legally exercising my 1st and 2nd Amendment rights and for using public data to defend my credibility when they make accusations against me.”

“I guess they don’t like it when you prove them wrong publicly. If we had a hit list and wanted to run down that list, you would have already seen it on the news. We don’t operate that way!! We are self-defense only, none of our members have killed any Muslims in America!”

“The list I posted was proof that the Muslims in Irving want their own Islamic legal system, (Sharia) just as I told the reporters at the Mosque protest. This is what happens when you play favoritism as a journalist, you cause problems and stir up controversy by twisting a story, lying, and omitting facts to fit your narrative as a team player for one side or another.”

“I would have had no reason to produce this list in my own defense if you would have told the story honestly without bias or blatant favoritism. So to those on the list who feel betrayed or targeted don’t blame me or the Mayor of Irving, blame the media for playing games of favoritism instead of reporting the news!”

The Irving city council posts the names and addresses of all who speak at city council meetings on the city’s website because they are public records – which is where Wright found them.
