This is what happens when the American Muslim community a.k.a. CAIR a.k.a the "Muslim Mafia" dares to chime in on matters of U.S. policy by proposing (privately and internally) that it could, hopefully, maybe, lobby Congress like AIPAC does so as to take its rightful place alongside the all-powerful Israel Lobby, which of course owns and occupies the U.S. Congress.
GOP Lawmakers Accuse Muslim Advocacy Group CAIR of Planting Spies on Capitol Hill
Four House Republicans on Wednesday accused the nation's largest Muslim advocacy group of trying to "infiltrate" Capitol Hill by placing interns in the offices of lawmakers who handle national security issues.
The four lawmakers, members of the anti-terror caucus, asked for an investigation into the Council on American Islamic Relations after discovering an internal memo noting the group's strategy. They also highlighted a new book by Paul Sperry titled "Muslim Mafia," scheduled for release on Thursday, which claims the group has been actively infiltrating Congress.
Reps. Sue Myrick of North Carolina, Trent Franks of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and John Shadegg of Arizona asked the Internal Revenue Service to determine whether CAIR deserves its nonprofit status. They also are asking their colleagues to review a summary of findings that led the Justice Department to name CAIR as a co-conspirator in a terrorism case.
The internal memo, provided to FOXNews.com, stated that CAIR would "focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community."
The memo cited three House committees -- Homeland Security, Intelligence and the Judiciary -- as panels on which lawmakers preside over policy affecting American Muslims.
"We will develop national initiatives such as a lobby day and placing Muslim interns in Congressional offices," the memo read.
Earlier this year the FBI severed its once-close ties with CAIR as evidence mounted of the group's links to a support network for Hamas, which the U.S. has designated a terrorist organization.
"It's frightening to think that an organization with clear-cut ties to terrorism could have a hand in influencing policy -- especially national security policy -- within our government," Myrick said. "The investigations that we're asking for are simple, and I'm hopeful that they will bring to light any and all information regarding the goals of CAIR."
Franks called on CAIR to renounce its ties to terrorist groups and state publicly that it does not support Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood.
"I take the charges levied against CAIR and laid out in this book very seriously because they affect our national security," Franks said in a statement. "This Congress must be deliberate in taking a strong stance against those groups and organizations that align themselves with terrorists."
"We live in a post-9/11 world where the coincidence of nuclear proliferation and Islamic terrorism pose a very dangerous combination and real threat to America's national security," he said. "That is why it is critical, in light of the well supported documents and information, that the U.S. Congress take this issue seriously."
CAIR decried the call as a "racist" and "insidious" attack on Muslims and mocked the allegations.
"If it wasn't so insidious, it would be laughable," CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told FOXNews.com. "What are their charges? CAIR seeks political participation of Muslims. I'm shocked."
Hooper said the evidence proves only that the group is trying, like every other minority group, to engage Muslims in the political process.
"Why is it evil when Muslims seek political participation?" he asked.
In the book "Muslim Mafia," a six-month sting appears to link CAIR to an organized crime network made up of more than 100 other Muslim front groups that make up the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The book claims the group is bent on destroying Western civilization.
Hooper said Sperry's efforts only proved the group's good intentions.
"The guy spied on us for months, stole documents -- and the most they came up with is CAIR seeks to work with policymakers on Capitol Hill?" Hooper said.
"I see it as a stamp of approval."
The uppity Muslims have forgotten that no pissing is allowed on Israeli-occupied territory. So just as a reminder, these paranoid, Islamophobic Republican lawmakers are claiming that CAIR is trying to "infiltrate" the U.S. government as 'spies' for the "Muslim Mafia". The last time I checked it wasn't Muslims that have a habit of spying and passing on classified information to foreign interests, it was the Jewish Mafia - the Rosenbergs and Bill Weisband in the '50s, Richard Smyth, Jonathan Pollard and Ben-Ami Kadish in the '80s, and more recently Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman of AIPAC and the Jane Harman / Haim Saban affair.
It doesn't stop there though, of course: There's Larry Franklin, Stephen Bryen, Douglas Feith, William Luti, Harold Rhode, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, the ADL, and of course the 200 or so Israelis that were arrested and subsequently released for spying on the United States before and after the 9/11 attacks, not to mention the other five Israelis of the Mossad's World Trade Center dancing team. Not one individual listed in this paragraph was ever punished for compromising U.S. national security for Israel, but that is par for the course.
Since the Pollard case, U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement sources have revealed to the Prospect that at least six sealed indictments have been issued against individuals for espionage on Israel's behalf. It's a testament to the unique relationship between the United States and Israel that those cases were never prosecuted; according to the same sources, both governments ultimately addressed them through diplomatic and intelligence channels rather than air the dirty laundry. A number of career Justice Department and intelligence officials who have worked on Israeli counterespionage told the Prospect of long-standing frustration among investigators and prosecutors who feel that cases that could have been made successfully against Israeli spies were never brought to trial, or that the investigations were shut down prematurely.

If any Muslim Arabs have been busted for spying on the U.S. for an Islamic government or on behalf of the intelligence services of an Arab state I've yet to learn about them. Have a look for yourself. The ATC - the Turkish Lobby - is powerful in Washington, but Turkey has long been tamed by the Zionists and the ATC is allied with AIPAC, so any intelligence gathered by the Turks is probably kosher and shared with Israel. Have there been charges laid or even allegations of Saudi spying in the U.S.? Doesn't look like it. Iranian, Syrian? Nope. And groups like Hezbollah and HAMAS don't have embassies or consulates in the U.S. because they are "terrorists", so they don't even have a foot in the door.
"It's frightening to think that an organization with clear-cut ties to terrorism [harmless, non-profit CAIR] could have a hand in influencing policy", says Rep. Sue Myrick, but the Jewish Mafia not only "influences" U.S. policy, it dictates it and even writes its own legislation for Congress. The ignorance and/or chutzpah of these Zionist stooges is mind-blowing. Is it ignorance or chutzpah? I don't even know. What is for sure is that as members of Congress they work closely with AIPAC, are familiar with its tactics, are hassled by regular letters and petitions and support requests from AIPAC, attend lavish AIPAC conventions and gala dinners, and in most cases accept their free hasbara holidays to Israel.
Fear the Muslim Mafia, lest you wake up one morning to find yourself living under Sharia law imposed on you by a Muslim Occupied Government (MOG). They already control the media. Oy Vey!!!!!
