Chicago Police Head Raises Money for CAIR
by Ryan Mauro
The Islamist pressure campaign against major law enforcement agencies is bearing fruit. They have put the NYPD on the defensive, thanks to some help from deceitful articles in the New York Times. And now, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has even agreed to speak at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group that the FBI has officially cut ties with over its links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism broke the story that McCarthy met with officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), where he promised that the Chicago Police Department would not use the surveillance tactics that CAIR has lashed out at the NYPD for using. Outrageously, McCarthy even agreed to speak at a fundraiser for CAIR's branch in Chicago. The event will honor Kifah Mustapha, an imam whose bid to become the Illinois State Police's first Muslim chaplain was torpedoed when his links to Hamas came to light.
CAIR was labeled by the federal government as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a charity found to be a Hamas front used for fundraising. In 2007, the said that, "From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists" and "the conspirators agreed to use deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists."
