National CAIR vs. Local CAIR by Rayhan Al-Safawi
CAIR may be useful at the local level, but its intentions are nefarious at the national and foreign policy level.
If you think of CAIR, it’s reasonable to draw an analogy from the Clinton Foundation. One the one hand, CF acts as a charitable organization that helps poor women and children around the world. On the other, it is ideologically a political organization with a sinister agenda, namely to associate with and collect funds from dictatorial regimes and use its political influence to do the bidding of its funders. The tit for tat approach was something Hillary Clinton knew all too well when she was Secretary of State and CF was ranking up the cash from Arab Gulf terrorist-sponsoring (e.g. ISIS) states like Saudi Arabia.
CAIR functions in a similar way. At the local level, CAIR is useful in the sense that it appoints lawyers for Muslims and gives them lots of useful advice when individual members and centers are in trouble with the government or when they face islamophobia. This kind of service they offer is invaluable in such dire times. However, on the national level, CAIR is another story entirely. And that story is not a nice one.
Like the Clinton Foundation, CAIR takes its money from genocidal Arab dictatorships like Saudi Arabia. In return, CAIR musters its domestic influence to align U.S public opinion as well as U.S foreign policy with those of its Saudi terrorist pay masters. This means, for example, pushing for the overthrow of a secular government in Syria that protects Christians and Churches and in its stead, advocating for Wahhabi and Salafi extremist groups to take over the government. These groups, among others, include the FSA and all other Al-Qaida-affiliated groups. CAIR knows all too well that Saudi Arabia funded and supported ISIS and that they have a real chance at grabbing power in Syria if President Bashar al-Asad were to fall. Yet they still continue to take money from them and still advocate the downfall of the Syrian government knowing all too well what the alternative will be, namely an ISIS or at the very least, an Al-Qaeda Caliphate in Damascus.
When speaking of CAIR on the national level, it is thus obvious that it operates on a Wahhabi/Salafi extremist ideology that is intolerant of any expression of religion or Islam that diverges from what the Saudis consider kosher.
Muslims are all welcome to accept CAIR’s services at the local level for many of its lower ranking representatives are genuinely good people and want to help their brethren in faith. But when accepting such help they should be weary of CAIR’s ulterior motives when it comes to foreign policy.
