After punishing the Brotherhood, is CAIR next?

CAIR press conferenceA pro-Israel activist is seconding the suggestion that the Council on American-Islamic Relations should be designated a foreign terrorist organization.

“Send them all back to where they came from and they can continue to practice their Sharia law, and their anti-West value system, where they come from,” Laurie Cardoza-Moore, who leads Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, says of CAIR.

OneNewsNow has reported the Trump administration is expected to slap the terrorist designation on the Muslim Brotherhood, and now there are calls for CAIR to receive the same treatment.

That push includes evangelist Franklin Graham, who has been vocally critical of Islam and Sharia law, and Cardoza-Moore says she is grateful to see Graham take such a stand.

“I was very impressed to see that he came out supporting that,” she says, “because that's exactly what needs to be done.”

CAIR describes itself as a civil-rights organization but columnist Michelle Malkin is among those who have noticed that CAIR leaders routinely warn of “backlash” to Muslims when an Islamist commits mass murder.

The group's real effort is to stifle criticism while also advancing radical Islam, she wrote in a March op-ed.

“These people need to be looked at,” Cardoza-Moore says of CAIR, “and we need to see where their loyalities lie and what they're doing.”
