To those of us who have the interest and dedication to being informed, there is not much new in this book, save perhaps documentary confirmation of what we already knew, and a single source for a lot of information which has come out in bits and pieces over the last few years.
Perhaps now that it is all in one place, in a very readable format, more of the general public will have the chance to meet the enemy within and adjust their perception accordingly.
Make no mistake; CAIR and it's Muslim Brotherhood co-conspirators have done a masterful job of creating an intricate web of deception all hidden behind the facade of "The Religion of Peace". By exploiting our freedom of religion for nefarious purposes, and inserting themselves into most of our government and law enforcement organizations as "representatives" of the Muslim people in America, they have had free rein to push their supremacist and destructive agenda.
Our PC culture has enabled them and encouraged them, as we have backed down to their demands over and over again. This book shines the harsh light of reality onto that innocuous-looking facade, and lays out it's grotesque web of deception for all to see. And this is the only way we will stop them from destroying our nation and our culture; by exposing them to the light of day.
If you've had that nagging feeling that something is not quite right with all of these Muslim organizations and the constant indictments of their leaders, their contradictory statements, and their support of terrorist organizations, but still feel it's all somehow OK, read this book. You'll see what they are really about; and it's not pretty.
There is much in this book that is hard to make you look the other way. CAIR was the same organization that was all over talk radio host Michael Savage. It is my understanding this evidence will be used by the justice dept for investigation.
While, I am not giving an in depth review of this title, I am saying give it a read and open your eyes. Don't simply bash it because you think it is anti Muslim. I do not think it was the authors intent at all, but it sheds a lot of unfavorable light on these front organizations.
I have read about half way through and it is succinct in delivering facts and an enjoyable read. I can see how some Muslims do not want this information out because it demonstrates how CAIR has used the Muslim community into not helping authorities in The War on Terror.
Open your mind and read it for what it is! If America condemned Israel, Muslims would be much happier. CAIR got played in tremendous fashion and they are VERY embarrassed about it!!
This book, detailing the operation and its findings shows the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is not the beneficent Muslim civil-rights group it claims to be. Indisputable evidence now demonstrates CAIR and other "mainstream" Islamic groups are acting as fronts for a well-funded conspiracy of the Muslim Brotherhood - the parent of al-Qaida and Hamas - to infiltrate and destroy the American system.
Until now, CAIR has remained a powerful force in the nation's capital and across the country, from demanding the Obama administration stop FBI counter-terrorism tactics to compelling a school district to apologize to Muslims.
That influence, many believe, may be coming to an end, as a result of the undercover investigation - which included the son of a veteran counter-terrorism investigator, who grew a beard and converted to Islam, as well as two veiled female interns. Multiple lawsuits were filed by CAIR, which in my opinion, is a two-face terror cell organization that has been undermining America since its foundation. But this book, which has undergone extensive operation and undercover intelligence retrieval, has been under fire by CAIR and ACLU- lovers. So basically if you are looking for analysis on the impact of "The flying imams [2006?]"(and similar radical Islamic incidents) and how it has jeopardized our rights as Americans to question suspicious behavior- a life-saving technique- on account of being sued and threatened by organizations like CAIR and the ACLU- then this is the book for you; the intellectual reader.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has, since its founding in 1994, served as the Islamist movement in North America's most high-profile, belligerent, manipulative, and aggressive agency. From its headquarters in Washington, D.C., CAIR also sets the agenda and tone for the entire Wahhabi lobby.
A substantial body of criticism about CAIR exists, some of by me, but until now, the group's smash-mouths and extremists have managed to survive all revelations about its record. The publication today [if published on October 15; or "this week" if published subsequently] of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America (WND Books) may, however, change the equation.
Written by P. David Gaubatz and Paul Sperry, the investigation is based largely on the undercover work of Gaubatz's son Chris who spent six months as an intern at CAIR's D.C. headquarters in 2008. In that capacity, he acquired 12,000 pages of documentation and took 300 hours of video.
Chris Gaubatz's information reveals much that the secretive CAIR wants hidden, including its strategy, finances, membership, and internal disputes, thereby exposing its shady and possibly illegal methods. As the book contains too much new information to summarize in small compass, I shall focus here on one dimension - the organization's inner workings, where the data shows that CAIR's claims amount to crude deceptions.
CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad and undercover intern Chris Gaubatz at CAIR's national headquarters in 2008.
Claim 1: According to Ibrahim Hooper, the organization's communications director, "CAIR has some 50,000 members." Fact: An internal memo prepared in June 2007 for a staff meeting reports that the organization had precisely 5,133 members, about one-tenth Hooper's exaggerated number.
Claim 2: CAIR is a "grass-roots organization" that depends financially on its members. Fact: According to an internal 2002 board meeting report, the organization received $33,000 in dues and $1,071,000 in donations. In other words, under 3 percent of its income derives from membership dues.
Claim 3: CAIR receives "no support from any overseas group or government." Fact: Gaubatz and Sperry report that 60 percent of CAIR's income derives from two dozen donors, most of whom live outside the United States. Specifically: $978,000 from the ruler of Dubai in 2002 in exchange for controlling interest in its headquarters property on New Jersey Avenue, a $500,000 gift from Saudi prince al-Waleed bin Talal and $112,000 in 2007 from Saudi prince Abdullah bin Mosa'ad, at least $300,000 from the Saudi-based Organization of the Islamic Conference, $250,000 from the Islamic Development Bank, and at least $17,000 from the American office of the Saudi-based International Islamic Relief Organization.
Claim 4: CAIR is an independent, domestic human rights group "similar to a Muslim NAACP." Fact: In a desperate search for funding, CAIR has offered its services to forward the commercial interests of foreign firms. This came to light in the aftermath of Dubai Ports World's failed effort to purchase six U.S. harbors in 2006 due to security fears. In response, CAIR's chairman traveled to Dubai and suggested to businessmen there: "Do not think about your contributions [to CAIR] as donations. Think about it from the perspective of rate of return. The investment of $50 million will give you billions of dollars in return for fifty years."
CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper and Chris Gaubatz work CAIR's booth at the Islamic Society of North America meeting in Columbus, Ohio, in 2008.
Combining these four facts reveals a CAIR quite unlike its public image. Almost bereft of members and dues, it sustains itself by selling its services to the Saudi and U.A.E. governments by doing their ideological and financial bidding.
This in turn raises the obvious question: should CAIR not be required to register as a foreign agent, with the regulations, scrutiny, and lack of tax-deductible status that the designation implies? Data in Muslim Mafia certainly suggests so.
Looking further ahead, I expect CAIR's days are numbered. It's a dirty institution, founded by Islamic terrorists and with many subsequent ties to terrorists. Over the years, it has established a long record of untrustworthiness that includes doctoring a photograph, fabricating anti-Muslim hate crimes, and promoting suspect polling. It has also intimidated critics via libel suits, boasted of ties to a neo-Nazi, and allegedly paid hush money. Eventually, close scrutiny of this outfit will likely lead to its demise.
That's the good news. Less happy is my expectation that CAIR's successor will be a more savvy, honest, respectable institution that continues its work of bringing Islamic law to the United States and Canada while avoiding the mistakes and apparent illegalities that render CAIR vulnerable. In that sense, the fight to preserve the Constitution has just begun.
