AMERICANS AGAINST HATE LAUNCHES 'CAIR WATCH'
SITE CREATED TO EXPOSE RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUP
(Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate (AAH) has launched 'CAIR Watch,' a
project dedicated to exposing the extremist nature and
terrorist ties of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
Joe Kaufman, the Chairman of Americans Against Hate,
has been tracking CAIR since October of 2001, exactly
one month after 9/11, when Kaufman appeared on a radio
show to debate the Executive Director of CAIR-Florida,
Altaf Ali. On the show, Ali derided Kaufman for being
Jewish and repeatedly refused to answer the question
of whether or not the people that perished in the
World Trade Center were innocent.
CAIR Watch will profile the extremist activities
and statements made by CAIR officials and those associated
with CAIR. The project will also expose media and
government organizations that laud CAIR or grant the
Islamist group any type of legitimacy.
CAIR Watch is asking for volunteers across the United
States to act as "CAIR Watchers" to assist
in the project.
Kaufman stated, "We are currently in a war on
terrorism, and we believe that any group associated
with terrorist organizations abroad should not be
allowed to exist within the United States. Given CAIR's
ties to Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, we believe
that CAIR is one of those groups."
Four of CAIR's representatives have been charged
by the United States government with conducting terrorist-related
activities. Two of those representatives are sitting
in American prisons; the other two have been deported.
CAIR is also the defendant in a 9/11 lawsuit put forward
by the family of FBI Agent John P. O'Neill, who was
murdered during the 9/11 attacks.
According to Steven Pomerantz, former FBI Assistant
Director and Chief of the FBI's Counter-Terrorism
Section, "CAIR, its leaders and its activities
effectively give aid to international terrorist groups."
Other government and law enforcement officials have
made similar statements.
