Inviting CAIR to Church

By Ryan Mauro

islam-hates-christianityWhen a Unitarian church in Florida decided to teach its congregation about Islam around the time of this year’s anniversary of 9/11, it brought in an extremist official from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) who has promoted 9/11 conspiracy theories. The group may no longer be embraced by the FBI, but CAIR’s list of published endorsements shows there are plenty of Christian and Jewish leaders happy to work with it.

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in the country’s largest terrorism financing trial and is listed by federal prosecutors as an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s secret Palestine Committee. A federal judge ruled in 2009 that there is “ample” evidence tying CAIR to Hamas. The organization was recently accused of using money laundering to hide its foreign financiers.

Perhaps the most damning official statement about CAIR comes from a 2007 court filing. Federal prosecutors said: “From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists…the conspirators agreed to use deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists.”…

 

….Unitarians have been particularly receptive to CAIR and its allies. The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles teamed up with CAIR to sue the National Security Agency.

The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations is an officialinterfaith partner of the Islamic Society of North America, CAIR’s fellow unindicted co-conspirator and U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. It is also amember of the ISNA-allied Shoulder-to-Shoulder interfaith coalition.

CAIR has a list of treasured interfaith friends and is sure toflatter them with honors at fundraising events. A number of these friends have provided quotes for CAIR’s website.

Rev. Dr. Bernice Powell Jackson, pastor of the First United Church of Tampa and President of the North American region of the World Council of Churches, gave CAIR an award in 2011.

The Faith Action Network, created by the Lutheran Public Policy Office and Washington Association of Churches, awarded CAIR’s Washington state chapter with its “Connecting Communities” award in 2011.

The Central United Methodist Church’s 7th Annual Peace and Justice Banquet honored the executive-director of CAIR’s Michigan chapter, Dawud Walid with the “Pastor’s Award” in 2011….
