James Finch of the FBI

James Finch, Special Agent for the FBI, canceled a planned meeting with members of the Muslim Community Outreach Program. "Regrettably," he wrote in a letter to the group, "due to circumstances beyond my control, the meeting will be postponed until further notice as a result of the planned participation by the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations."

"If CAIR wishes to pursue an outreach relationship with the FBI," the letter said, "certain issues must be addressed to the satisfaction of the FBI. Unfortunately, these issues cannot be addressed at the local level and must be addressed by the CAIR National Office in Washington, D.C."

Similar letters have been sent to other groups affiliated with CAIR, including CAIR chapters. The FBI is finally cutting off contact with CAIR because CAIR has clear ties to Hamas.

The FBI made this decision because of the things they discovered in the Holy Land Foundation trial. As Mary Jacoby writes, "CAIR and its chairman emeritus, Omar Ahmad, were named un-indicted co-conspirators in the HLF case. Both Ahmad and CAIR's current national executive director, Nihad Awad, were revealed on government wiretaps as having been active participants in early Hamas-related organizational meetings in the United States. During testimony, FBI agent Lara Burns described CAIR as a front organization."

For a long time, the FBI has bent over backwards to help and support CAIR's state chapters and the national organization (because CAIR is perpetually demanding special consideration for Muslims). This help and support "conferred legitimacy" onto CAIR. But no more. Jacoby says:
The HLF trial showed that CAIR was formed to covertly influence US opinions of the Palestinian conflict and Islam, but without revealing its connections to Hamas.

For example, prosecutors introduced transcripts of wiretaps from a 1993 meeting in Philadelphia of the Palestine Committee, called to order by Ahmad and attended by Awad. In that meeting, Ahmad and others discussed the need to create a new political organization seemingly unconnected to Hamas or the Brotherhood.

In one excerpt, an unidentified male said: "We must form a new organization for activism which will be neutral, because we are placed in a corner, we are place in a corner. It is known who we are, we are marked and I believe there should be a new neutral organization which works on both sides."

How does that make this guy a hero? He was following orders. Otherwise he would have met with them and for what? To appease their worries? What other religious or political groups for that matter get special white glove treatment from the FBI?

Whomever within the FBI made the decision did so not of their own volition but likely at the behest of private individuals who have done tremendous research on the issue.

The FBI should not only cut ties with CAIR but all Muslim Brotherhood related groups and furthermore should investigate and prosecute them under U.S. laws.

To date, nearly 8 years after 9/11, fifteen years after the first WTC bombing, and 20+ years since the Lebanon terror incident incidents the FBI is clearly no hero in this fight against Islamists.

The intent of this site is worthy, but your content needs serious attention and focus.

Anonymous, Finch was selected as a hero because the people who made the decision cannot be named. But it was a good decision.

I understand with you and agree with you that the FBI has made foolish PC choices in dealing with Islamic supremacism, but when someone does something right, they should be acknowledged. And cutting ties with CAIR was right.
