Columbus, Ohio’s city council is sponsoring a defense fund for illegal aliens facing deportation, and Judicial Watch is now reporting that most of the money will go to the local chapter of a terrorist front group that promotes itself as a Muslim civil rights organization.
The pot of cash is known as Columbus Families Together Fund, and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, will be among the recipients, according to the report.
“CAIR was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad, and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine. In 2008 CAIR was a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group Holy Land Foundation,” according to Judicial Watch, which wrote a special report that focuses on Muslim charities.
Judicial Watch goes on to note, “Top FBI counter terrorism chiefs have described CAIR as an entity that not only promotes terrorism, but also finances it. One group has dedicated itself to documenting CAIR’s extensive terrorist ties which include a top official sentenced to 20 years in prison for participating in a network of militant jihadists, another convicted of bank fraud for financing a major terrorist group, a board member who was a co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a fundraiser identified by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing Al Qaeda.”
