CAIR Official Posts Offensive Holocaust Jokes onto Social Media
Most representatives from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) offend the Jewish community by attacking Israel. However, one CAIR leader, Ruanne Zein, has chosen a different tact, offending Jews by posting revolting jokes about the Holocaust on social media. While CAIR likes to shout "Islamophobia" at every instance of real or imagined prejudice against Muslims, how will the group react to an obvious case of bigotry promoted by one of its own?
CAIR was established in June 1994 as part of a terrorist umbrella group headed by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook. In 2007 and 2008, CAIR was named by the US Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. Since its founding, a number of CAIR representatives have served jail time and/or have been deported from the United States for terrorist-related crimes. In November 2014, CAIR, itself, was designated a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.
