Ex-CAIR Official Flies to Iran to Curse U.S.
by Joe Kaufman
Cyrus McGoldrick wasn't at his home in Florida this past week. He spent the week in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Part of his time was devoted to sightseeing, and part of it was spent cursing his home country, the United States, while shilling for Iran on Iranian TV. He is currently back on U.S. soil, but his actions suggest that he instead renounce his citizenship and take up permanent residency in the terrorist state, where his mom was born. But before he leaves, he needs to be investigated.
Cyrus McGoldrick converted to Islam, while attending Columbia University at the age of 20. It did not take him long to become radicalized, as following his graduation in 2010, he became the Civil Rights Manager for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Prior to that, he had served as an intern for CAIR-NY. He has also served as CAIR-NY's Advocacy Director.
CAIR was established in June 1994 as being a part of the American Palestine Committee, an umbrella organization acting as a terrorist enterprise run by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the U.S. at the time. In 2007 and 2008, amidst two federal trials, the U.S. government named CAIR a co-conspirator in the raising of millions of dollars for Hamas. In November 2014, along with ISIS, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram, CAIR was listed as a terrorist group by United Arab Emirates (UAE).
