Holder: CAIR’s Links to Hamas Don’t Bother Me!

Filed under: General,Obama,Terrorism — Patterico @ 7:09 pm



CAIR: too radical — and too connected to terrorists — for the FBI:

The FBI claims it cut “formal contacts” with CAIR after federal prosecutors in the 2007 criminal trial of officers of a Texas-based Islamic charity, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, introduced documents the government said showed links between CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave rise to Hamas.

“Until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner,” FBI Congressional liaison Richard Powers wrote in an April letter to Senator Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.).

But not for Eric Holder:

Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to give a keynote speech next week to a Michigan group which includes the local branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations even though the FBI has formally severed contacts with the controversial Muslim civil rights organization.

I never thought Eric Holder would be pro-terrorist!

Other than the deal where he violated normal procedures to approve the pardons for the terrorists, that is . . . But come on! Who ever really saw that as a warning sign?

  1. So I guess “restoring independence to and removing politics from the Justice Department” consists of the following three action items:

    1. Ignore voter intimidation when done by allies of your Administration
    2. Make inane comments about race relations in this country
    3. Play footsie with groups that have links to terrorists.

    Good to know.

  2. Holder sees nothing wrong with associating with the freedom fighters in Gaza.

    Terrorists? What terrorists? Bad ol’ Israel is being mean to Gaza by not letting those followers of the religion of peace visit Israeli pizza shops with explosives strapped to their chest.

    Holder knows what his boss was listening to for the 20 years he went to Trinity.

  4. Look who Holder is speaking to according to the article:

    Holder is scheduled to speak in Detroit to the first annual awards banquet of Advocates and Leaders for Police and Community Trust, a coalition of several dozen law enforcement and community groups

    So we see that CAIR is now affiliated with the local police watchdog organization. Nice! The irony here is sickening!

  5. Tsk tsk…such minor details. Kinda like the Ft Hood shooter minor details, huh?

  6. These kinds of articles always make me think about features and bugs.

  7. Holder is just upholding the pledge made by his boss, to talk to anyone at anytime — regardless of ideology. Maybe it’s okay because he has “good intentions”.

    Hell, these days that’s enough! Maybe he’s angling for the next Nobel Peace Prize.

  8. If the republicans were to capture both houses of congress with a large enough of a majority not only they should immediately repeal everything this disaster of democrat-communist president and congress pass but impeach and remove Holder and the rest of the progressives a/k/a communists from the executive branch and the top democrats who pushed these blatantly unconstitutional acts. Then Obama. Let Biden be Obama’s Gerald Ford. He is a buffoon but not nearly as bad as Obama.

  9. Of course contacts between Hamas and CAIR don’t bother him! He’s actually on the other side. Doesn’t anyone else see that?

  10. I’m sure CAIR will come up with lots of cash and voters too come election time. After all with Acorn temporarily out of commission, what’s a lefty candidate to do?

  11. Patricia – Since most of CAIR’s funding comes from overseas, the cash will be just as legal as many of the buckets Obama pocketed for his last campaign.

  12. […] group includes the local branch of CAIR — yes, CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation jihadi charity […]
