CAIR Leaders Shill for Hamas in American Media, Reporters Cooperate

As Israel continues to respond with force to the heinous October 7th attack perpetrated by Hamas terrorists who raped young women, kidnapped children, and burned families alive, television journalists try to demonstrate their objectivity by soliciting responses from Muslim leaders in the United States. In their effort to be evenhanded, they speak with leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization with deep and enduring ties to Hamas, the designated terrorist organization that perpetrated the October 7 massacre.

CAIR is an offshoot of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was founded by Hamas operatives using seed money from a Hamas charity called the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), whose leaders were convicted in 2008 of providing material support for Hamas. As documented by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, CAIR was listed as a unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial as part of a campaign to "advance the Hamas agenda within the United States."

Moreover, two CAIR founders, including its current national director, Nihad Awad, took part in a 1993 meeting with Hamas members in Philadelphia. The following year, Awad, publicly stated, "I am in support of the Hamas movement." In 2014, when the local CAIR chapter co-sponsored a rally in downtown Miami, protesters repeatedly chanted "We are Hamas" and "Let's go Hamas." Nevertheless, CAIR's well-known links to Hamas do not disqualify its leaders from being trusted journalistic sources.

The problem is particularly evident in the CAIR stronghold of South Florida where Islamists have made inroads in local schools and where politicians appear at Islamist events. For example, a number of Tampa TV stations featured Abdullah Jaber, Executive Director of CAIR-Florida, in numerous interviews. He suggested in an interview broadcast on 10 Tampa Bay (WTSP) that Israel is ultimately responsible for the violence against its citizens because it is the "occupier." To Tampa's Fox News affiliate, Fox 13, he legitimized Hamas's massacre of Israeli civilians by casting Israel as a "colonizer."

Here’s a top candidate for ‘most misleading MSM headline of the year’ - American Thinker

:snip:

In the latest example that the mainstream media are the enemy of the people (and truth, sanity, and decency), NBC News ran the following online headline about the attack: “Man dies after hitting head during Israel and Palestinian rallies in California, officials say.”

Officials said that, you say?  Hmm, did the poor fellow perhaps slip and fall, hitting his head on the sidewalk?  Did he smack himself in the head too hard?  That headline makes it difficult to discern what happened.  Oh, he was murdered?!  That’s horrible!  Why didn’t you say so?!

CAIR ain't the only HAMAS shills out there.

Hamas Ally CAIR Has Been Operating With Impunity Inside America For 30 Years

What Wray didn’t say is that the FBI has been investigating Hamas’ biggest ally in America for the past 30 years – without filing any charges.

Although it has not repudiated its support for Hamas – which is committed to the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people – CAIR was enlisted by the Biden administration in May to take part in a White House \\\\fight antisemitism.
