Here's my question concerning the free operation of CAIR as a civil rights organization. Even in this press conference held on December 21, 2015 CAIR spokesmen ignore extremist violent acts by persons who appear to be Muslims, killing Americans. CAIR never condemns those mass murders, and does not mention Muslim violence anywhere. They are only concerned about bias and discrimination against Muslims in America. CAIR never mentions extreme abuses in Muslim dominant countries. CAIR ignores hate speech and actions expressing a desire to kill Americans, Jews and to destroy western civilization and Israel specifically. They are adept at exploiting freedoms guaranteed by the US Constitution as they protect aggression against the United States. He's a link to UK Prime Minister's report on the Muslim Brotherhood, the press conference by CAIR, followed by an essay about the UK report on Muslim Brotherhood and violence.

Muslims in the U.S.
Representatives of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations held a year-end news conference at the National Press Club on the organization’s initiatives to combat anti-Muslim attitudes in the U.S. They announced decisions made during their summit the previous day on new educational, outreach, and civil empowerment initiatives to address growing Islamophobia in the U.S. and to enhance national security. New strategies would include a campaign to register one million Muslim-American voters by the 2016 presidential election and a “National Open Mosque Day.” In addition, the council would seek to increase emergency preparedness for Muslim institutions and citizens faciing hate crimes around the country.
A recently-published British government report concludes that “membership of, association with, or influence by the Muslim Brotherhood should be considered as a possible indicator of extremism,” according to Prime Minister David Cameron. The report also notes that the British government was mistaken in believing it shared a common agenda with the Muslim Brotherhood against al-Qaeda and militant Salafism in general. Cameron said the government would be more careful in the future not to provide legitimacy or a platform for the Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR, a widely-quoted organization which poses as a civil-rights group, is a Muslim Brotherhood entity. A federal district court found it to be so, listing it under the heading “The following individuals/entitles who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” CAIR is number 11 on the list. CAIR was started with the help of a $5,000 donation from the Holy Land Foundation, a terrorist organization prosecuted by the aforementioned court for aiding the terrorist group Hamas. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the Muslim Brotherhood is “Hamas’ parent organization.”

The problem is not limited to leaders from long ago: CAIR’s current executive director, Nihad Awad, participated in a Hamas meeting in Philadelphia and has voiced support for the group.

Given CAIR’s record of ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) severed ties with CAIR back in 2009 “until [the FBI] can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS.” After the United Arab Emirates designated CAIR a terrorist organization in November 2014, the U.S. State Department said it would investigate. What has it found? Why doesn’t the federal government release the reports?
