Does Glenn Greenwald Hate America?
by Robert Spencer
The Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has announced that Glenn Greenwald, the far-Left journalist who publicized Edward Snowden's information about the astonishingly broad extent of NSA electronic surveillance programs, will be its keynote speaker at its Orwellian-named "Faith in Freedom" dinner on November 16.
This will be the first time that Greenwald, who now lives in Brazil, will return to the United States since the NSA scandal broke. It is not surprising that a CAIR event would be the occasion for his return, since he has said that "there really is no organization with which I'd rather be spending my time, or with which I feel more at home than CAIR."
Yet CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR's cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.
