Chicago ABC Station, Financial Institutions Co-Sponsor CAIR Banquet
by John Rossomando and Steven Emerson
A federal court established a link between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the terrorist group Hamas, but that did not stop Chicago's ABC 7 joining Morgan Stanley and New York Life in co-sponsoring its Chicago chapter's March 15 banquet.
An FBI agent testified that CAIR was a Hamas front group in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorist money-laundering trial. It was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the same case.
In a 2009 ruling, U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis wrote that the government's evidence delivered in the case creates "at least a prima facie (face value) case as to CAIR's involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas."
