Graham to Trump: Brand CAIR as terrorist group

Franklin Graham headshot micRev. Franklin Graham is urging President Donald Trump to do recognize the Council on American-Islam Relations (CAIR) as an Islamic terrorist organization.

CAIR – a spin-off of the Muslim Brotherhood which has been internationally recognized as a terrorist group (the same one former President Barack Obama helped usurp power over Egypt from longstanding Israeli and American ally Hosni Mubarak in the Arab Spring) – has been commissioned by the public school system to produce materials, as well as prepare and present lessons indoctrinating students in Islam … in the name of countering so-called “Islamophobia.”

Know thy enemy

Graham is asking the president to put CAIR on the same list as the Muslim Brotherhood, as it is known to be a subversive militant group that is merely a front for the Muslim Brotherhood – which has waged jihad against Western society.

“The president is right about the Muslim Brotherhood – they should definitely be designated a terrorist group,” Graham posted on Facebook Tuesday. “The Muslim Brotherhood has been behind the killing of Christians around the world for decades.”

The president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelist Association (BGEA) and Samaritan’s Purse reminded his followers of the ruthless nature of the Islamic terrorist group.

“The destruction this group has brought to the churches and Christian population in Egypt is incredible,” Graham pointed out. “They are also responsible for killing other non-Muslims and even turning their violence on peaceful Muslims who disagree with them.”

Numerous countries – including numerous Islamic governments in the Middle East – have recognized the dangerous nature of the militant group and have put their citizens and neighbors on alert about the group’s violent ways.

“They are already considered a terrorist organization by the governments of several countries, including Bahrain, Egypt, Russia, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates,” Graham noted.

The world-renowned evangelist from North Carolina went on to encourage Trump to take his war on terror a step further by designating CAIR as a terrorist group, as well – which can be even more dangerous than the Muslim Brotherhood to Americans considering it has worked within the government in the national’s capital, as well as with public school districts, to implement its agenda and indoctrinate Americans in the ways of Islam.

“I’m thankful we have a president who is not afraid to take on extremist groups like this,” Graham concluded. “While he’s at it, the label should also be applied to CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), which is the mouthpiece in Washington for radical Islam.”

The Trump administration is slated assign the Muslim Brotherhood the designation as a “foreign terrorist organization,” according to CNN.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it is just a matter of time before this happens – identifying the Brotherhood as a co-conspirator in global jihad

 “[The administration is] working its way through the internal process,” Sanders insisted, according to CNN, which noted that the designation would penalize all persons, groups, companies or nations assisting or doing business with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Not very ‘CAIRing’

The mainstream media and the Obama administration were reportedly very diligent in keeping the true roots of CAIR unbeknownst to the American public for years.

“CAIR – which was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing case – already has been given that designation by the United Arab Emirates,” WND reported. “Calling itself a Muslim civil-rights organization, it aggressively tries to stamp out criticism of Islam with its ’lawfare’ campaign.”

Taking sides against Israel in its ongoing conflict with the Palestinians, the Obama administration touted CAIR as a peace-loving group working to counter religious and racial profiling rooted in Islamophobia – even though its terrorist ties have been plain to see for years.

“CAIR was created by operatives of Hamas – the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood,” WND pointed out.

Exposing the ‘unCAIRing’ truth

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin stressed the militant nature of CAIR – which had done its best to present itself as a peace-loving Muslim group fighting discrimination.

“Following the horrible massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, CAIR flacks were out in full force decrying ‘Islamophobia’ and calling for crackdowns on ‘hate speech’ – by which they mean any and all negative thoughts or words about CAIR or Islam,” Malkin informed. “CAIR executive director Nihad Awad was first out of the gate to blame President Donald Trump; target Fox News hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson, whom the left wants to silence; and renew opposition to White House efforts to tighten our immigration and entrance policies – including the travel ban affecting terror-sponsoring countries upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

CAIR’s ties to recent anti-American and anti-Semitic attacks waged by government officials were also addressed.

“While they drape themselves in the mantle of ‘civility,’ the CAIR brigade speaks viciously and cavalierly about their enemies. [Rep. Ihlan] Omar says Trump is not ‘human,” Malkin continued. “On an Arab-American talk show, she mocked a college professor who treated terrorist organizations al-Qaida and Hezbollah with gravity. She cackled at how he named them with a sternness in his voice and questioned why the words ‘Army’ and ‘America’ are not uttered with equal contempt. I can hear the ululations of agreement at the CAIR banquet now.”

Adherence to the violent and oppressive Islamic Shariah law was also brought up by Malkin.

“They thrive on violence – whether Muslims are the victims or the perpetrators,” she stressed. “CAIR operatives are first to claim systematic oppression and fear of a ‘backlash’ if bloodthirsty Islamic jihadists slay innocent Americans. It’s always our fault and it’s always our responsibility – to curtail our speech, give up our gun rights, undergo sensitivity training, accept inflated statistics about ‘hate crimes’ and apologize for everything. CAIR wants to shut up its critics in the name of ‘stopping the hate’ because it doesn’t want us talking about its dirty, dangerous deeds.”

For more than a decade, CAIR’s true jihadist colors have been exposed, but only to be covered up or ignored by the mainstream media.

“]Malkin] warned readers not to forget CAIR’s designation as an unindicted terror co-conspirator in 2007 in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation and others for providing support to violent Hamas jihadists, [a]nd federal law enforcement investigators banned interactions with CAIR to ‘prevent CAIR from publicly exploiting such contacts with the FBI.” WND recounted. “Its officials also have been defendants in a number of terrorist cases.”

Ploys orchestrated to characterize Muslims as victims of racial profiling were also brought to the light.

“[CAIR] helped manufacture the ‘Clock Boy’ fake hate claim in Texas – after which, Clock Boy jetted off to Qatar to cash in on a Muslim Brotherhood-linked educational scholarship,” Malkin revealed. “Never forget: CAIR works every day to silence Muslim reformers, apostates, Christians, Jews, infidel scholars, border security advocates, anti-Shariah activists and investigative independent journalists, on college campuses, TV airwaves and the internet, to prevent us from exposing the truth about Islamic supremacism.”

CAIR’s attempt to silence Graham

Just two years ago, CAIR tied to silence Graham by calling Trump to keep him from delivering a prayer during his presidential inauguration.

"If [then] President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together – not to create divisions between faiths," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a January 2017 press release, according to CBN News

CAIR was concerned about Graham’s hard stance on Islam, which he voiced in a previous Facebook post, when he urged the U.S. government under the Obama administration in 2015 to put and end to Muslims immigrating into America because of national security concerns.

"[Islam is a] very evil and wicked religion [and Muslims are] enslaved by Islam," Graham warned in his 2015 Facebook post, according to CBN. "Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized – and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad."
