AFDI’s Truth About CAIR Ad Defaced: Anti-Semitic Vandelism

Our new Truth About CAIR ad campaign is running on Washington DC buses, train dioramas and New York subway platforms.

AFDI’s Truth about CAIR advertisements have been defaced with anti-Semitic vandalism, including hammers and sickles and the phrases “No to Zionism” and “Long live Palestine.” Supporters of the Hamas-CAIR terror-aligned organization are flagrant anti-semites. The vandalism demonstrates yet again the desperate insecurity and authoritarian tendencies of the foes of the U.S., Israel and freedom.

We are rolling out this campaign in as many cities as we can. PleaseCONTRIBUTE HERE.


It is very telling that their vandalism is anti-Semitic. The supporters of Hamas-tied CAIR and the Palestinian jihad cannot answer our arguments or refute our assertions. They cannot debate, so they destroy. All that is left to them is to try to silence us forcibly by vandalizing our printed messages and smearing and defaming the messenger. It is the tactic of thugs and fascists, and should be opposed by all free people.


We printed up a stack of these posters, knowing how the destroyers operate. The defaced ads have been replaced, as will any others that are defaced, and we have made an even bigger CAIR-truth buy in other US cities, including San Francisco and Philadelphia.


The leading Muslim Brotherhood-tied organization in America has deceived the media, cultural and political elites in America for years, to the great peril of the American people. Despite the overwhelming evidence presented in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, the Holy Land foundation trial, the sharia-compliant media has continued to advance Hamas-CAIR’s supremacist agenda, with willing help from all too many law enforcement and government officials.


CAIR’s influence is vast, and growing all the time. Just recently they got ABC Family to drop its projected show Alice In Arabia, solely because it contained some dramatization of the all-too-common phenomenon of child kidnapping by Muslim relatives. For years now, they have prevailed upon Hollywood to downplay or even change the identity of celluloid villains, so that Muslims are never portrayed negatively in films (thus the Muslim terrorists in the novel The Sum of All Fears became neo-Nazis in the movie).




CAIR pressured Brandeis University to rescind an honorary degree it had planned to award to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It regularly pressures (and usually succeeds) in getting any and every counter-jihad speaker canceled from events. Recently it even tried to bribe the sheriff of Culpepper County, Virginia with $15,000 to get him to cancel a counter-terror training seminar.


Because of this kind of activity, Hamas-CAIR should be shunned by all decent people. But instead, this unsavory gang of thugs is stronger than ever. JP Morgan and ABC are sponsoring their annual banquet this year. And the general silence about their terror-linked background has enabled them to infiltrate the highest levels of the political and cultural spheres.


That is why my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), has rolled out this ad campaign that tells the truth about this Islamic supremacist hate group.

CAIR ad DCThese huge dioramas (lit up at night) will be going up all around Washington DC for the next six monthsNow more than ever, as CAIR’s influence grows in the media and government, this ad campaign is necessary to raise awareness among the public, to protect people from being taken in by this unsavory and unscrupulous group. 

The ad depicts several CAIR officials who have been arrested and convicted of terror-related crimes. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case so named by the Justice Department during the trial of the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation.


CAIR has a long record of duplicity and deception. Although it has received millions of dollars in donations from foreign Islamic entities, it has not registered as a foreign agent as required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), despite spreading Islamic supremacist propaganda within the United States.


Although it presents itself as a civil rights group, CAIR actually has numerous links to Islamic supremacist and jihad groups. CAIR founders Omar Ahmad and Niwad Awad (who still serves as CAIR’s executive director), were present at a Hamas planning meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 where they and other Hamas operatives conspired to raise funds for Hamas and to promote jihad in the Middle East. CAIR has steadfastly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.


Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror:


Ghassan Elashi, founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, in 2009 received a 65-year prison sentence for funneling over $12 million from the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation to the jihad terrorist group Hamas, which is responsible for murdering hundreds of Israeli civilians
Mousa Abu Marzook, a former CAIR official, was in 1995 designated by the U.S. government in 1995 as a”terrorist and Hamas leader.”He now is a Hamas leader in Syria.
Randall Royer, CAIR’s former civil rights coordinator, in 2004 began serving a 20-year prison sentence for aiding al-Qaida and the Taliban against American troops in Afghanistan and recruiting for Lashkar e-Taiba, the jihadist group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai jihad massacres.
Bassem Khafagi, CAIR’s former community relations director, was arrested for involvement with the Islamic Assembly of North America, which was linked to al-Qaida. After pleading guilty to visa and bank fraud charges, Khafagi was deported.
Rabih Haddad, a former CAIR fundraiser, was deported for his work with the Global Relief Foundation (which he co-founded), a terror-financing organization.


In 1998 Omar Ahmad, CAIR’s co-founder and longtime Board Chairman, said:  “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”


After he received unwelcome publicity as a result of this statement, Ahmad denied saying it, several years after the fact. However, the original reporter, Lisa Gardiner of the Fremont Argus, stands by her story.


CAIR’s spokesman Ibrahim Hooper once said: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.”
