If you’re a regular WND reader, you already know the sordid history and the deserved notoriety of the Council on American-Islamic Relations – CAIR.
And if you already know, you’d think the mayor of the fourth-largest American city would be aware enough of the group’s links to virulent anti-Semites and refusal to cooperate with anti-terror measures to avoid any connection.
Alas, after the mayor’s glowing proclamation declaring Sunday “CAIR-TEXAS, Houston Day,” the organization is one step closer to its leaders’ stated aim of establishing Islamic rule in the United States.
Big-city mayor honors terrorist co-conspirator
Hailed as ‘leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding’
The FBI cut off relations with the Council on American-Islamic Relations after it was named by the Justice Department a co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-funding case in U.S. history. In the trial of that case, FBI evidence showed CAIR’s parent organization was founded as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. And, along the conviction of numerous CAIR leaders on terrorism charges, an Arab Gulf state designated the organization a terrorist group.
Nevertheless, the mayor of America’s fourth largest city issued a proclamation declaring Sunday “CAIR-TEXAS, Houston Day” in honor of the group’s Houston chapter.
The proclamation signed by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner hails CAIR’s “vision to be a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding.”
But Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, points out CAIR has “opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented.”
CAIR chapters, he noted, frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement, including the FBI.

And CAIR officials repeatedly have refused to denounce the Palestinian group Hamas and the Iranian proxy Hezbollah as terrorist organizations.
The proclamation coincides with the Houston chapter’s annual fundraising banquet, which features as speakers Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour and Hassan Shibley, the executive director of CAIR’s Florida chapter.
Sarsour is a big fan of Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader known for his frequent anti-Semitic statements. Farrakhan once said “Hitler was a very great man” and warned Jews: “And don’t you forget, when it’s God who puts you in the ovens, it’s forever!”
In 2012, Sarsour tweeted: “When we write the history of Islam in America, the Nation of #Islam is an integral part of that history.”
An author and an investigator are being sued by CAIR for publishing the results of an undercover probe in a WND Books bestseller that exposed the group’s radical origins.
CAIR leaders have made statements affirming the aim of establishing Islamic rule in the United States.
The Islamic organization long had accused WND and others of “smearing” the Muslim group by citing a newspaper account of CAIR founder Omar Ahmad telling Muslims in Northern California in 1998 that they were in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam’s rule over the country.
But WND caught CAIR falsely claiming that it had contacted the paper and had “sought a retraction,” insisting Ahmad never made the statement. Three years later, the issue arose again, and WND found CAIR still had not contacted the paper.
CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper also has expressed a desire to replace the U.S. system of government with an Islamic state.
“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper said in a 1993 interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
Why is it CAIR can’t be successful in the Middle East? It seems they can’t be compatible within their own religion since they have been fighting each other for 500 years.
Now look at the Middle East which is in shambles and they want to come to America and create the same problems here.
Remember during Obama’s time in the government and all of the problems he created trying to push Islam down our throat – especially, the number of terrorists who killed people in the U.S. during that time.
Hooper has to understand – Islam is not compatible with the Constitution of the U.S.
The Democrats are now pushing socialism/Islam and that is why Prez Trump was elected – plus, Obama and the Democrats tried to over throw the government after Hillary Clinton wasn’t elected and these people have to be brought to justice.
This only tells me the mayor of Houston is pushing Islam and following Farrakham.
Do the citizens of Houston approve of this proclamation?
How did Turner get elected – by harvesting votes? If so, let’s be more diligent and call out the pest control during the elections and spray “ROUND UP” to take care of those illegal “votes” like they did in Florida during the 2018 midterms. It seems like the Democrats are using harvesting in every state to win.
