CAIR’s Use of Lawfare and Intimidation
CAIR’s Use of Lawfare and Intimidation
February 8, 2017 – This brief film exposes the origin, purpose, and operational activities of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It cites examples of almost 150 documented cases of frivolous lawsuits, extortion, intimidation and subversion undertaken by CAIR, all aimed at silencing its critics and advancing its agenda.
CAIR misrepresents itself as a Muslim civil rights organization, but is in reality a seditious and subversive group operating within the United States and Canada as a direct operational extension of the radical Muslim Brotherhood. In the film, CAIR is shown to be an instrumental facet of the radical and violent Jihadist movement, waging war against American and Canadian institutions and constitutional freedoms.
CFNS assists Congress in crucial terrorist bill
CFNS is proud to be of service to Members of Congress who are working on a crucial bill now in the House. H.R. 5194 would designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). (introduced in 2014 but never acted on)
Current bills in congress:
HR-377 – Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2017 –
Rep. Diaz-Balart, Mario [R-FL-25] (Introduced 01/09/2017)
House – 02/06/2017 Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations from House Judiciary
S 68 – (companion to HR-377) Sen. Cruz, Ted [R-TX] (Introduced 01/09/2017)
Senate – 01/09/2017 Read twice and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations.
The following are examples that have made the headlines since 2012 but it appears every state may have a chapter and at least one state has implied that there are many lawsuits filed per year across the country. Some of the ones below actually came from postings on CAIR’s website.
03/09/2018 – Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MA) is calling on an American Legion post in that state to deny the use of its facility for an event Sunday featuring an anti-Muslim speaker, Anni Cyrus, and promoted by an Islamophobic hate group.

Obama, the DoJ, and the FBI have shielded and allowed CAIR to bully, extort, file many unwarranted or useless complaints and do basically what they wanted over the past eight years. Those that went against them soon found that they were in deep trouble financially or through maligning their reputations. They used the amendments to the constitution to advance their cause and have found ways to slink around the truth in order to get their way.
It is time they and all who list their companies under 501(c) but misuse the designation to hide financial matters and escape taxes for political agendas be held to account. Those that have ties to ANY bad actors through either individuals within their organizations, sponsoring or listening to those who would push a radical narrative, and those in the legal profession, DC, or congress who are seen consorting with or working with these groups for years should be investigated.
It’s past time to call these particular groups in the US to account and to declare them exactly what they are – – radical groups who either support or are supported in part or in whole by known terrorist groups especially those already listed as co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial and those acknowledged in other countries as radical groups.
