San Diego school board members agreed Tuesday night to end its parnership with designated terrorist group CAIR on a campaign allegedly to fight anti-Muslim bullying generated by an exaggerated and mostly fake CAIR report. But as you will see below, the ‘anti-bullying’ program was merely a smoke screen which would then allow CAIR’s real agenda of Islamic indoctrination of children to emerge.
Investigative Project This is how it began: The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) teamed up with the designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), a radical Islamic organization, to devise and enforce an unconstitutional “anti-Islamophobia” bullying program. As part of this program, Muslim students were to get special protections and additional access to resources, while students of other faiths were excluded.
CAIR has been in bed with the San Diego school district since 2015. In fact, in November 2015, the board of education recognized CAIR for its community efforts.
In preparation for the following school years, the San Diego board of education had already outlined the CAIR plan, despite the fact that parents were rejecting its points of action:
The board initially agreed to work with CAIR in April. CAIR’s program aimed to increase education about Islam in the classroom. Parents and religious liberty advocates balked at singling out Muslim students for safe places without providing similar accommodations to other faiths. Muslim holidays would have been added to the school calendar, and campus events falling on those holidays would be rescheduled.
CAIR representative can’t contain his exhilaration when the San Diego Unified school district initally agreed to adopt the CAIR Islamic Indoctrination program for their schools.
The agenda item specifically mentioned that school board “staff is redirected from forming a formal partnership with CAIR to forming an intercultural committee which shall include representatives of from all faiths and cultures and which shall provide input to District staff on issues of cultural sensitivities and the individual needs of various subgroups within our diverse community.”
Not surprisingly for Caliphornia, leftist speaker after speaker criticized the proposal for excluding CAIR and for not specifically emphasizing anti-Muslim bigotry and “Islamophobia.” CAIR-San Diego Executive Director Hanif Mohebi managed to make that argument while still denying CAIR was singularly focused.
“We have never come out saying that it should only be one group. But I think also we should realize that it might be a mistake not to focus on groups that are targeted much more than the rest,” Mohebi said. “So that being said, we expect the district to publicly acknowledge and recognize the work that we have done for over a decade with the school district.”
It was obvious, though, that board members reluctantly decided to implement a broader policy addressing bullying across cultures and religious backgrounds.
Vice President Kevin Beiser reaffirmed his support for CAIR and thanked it for over a decade of partnership, but said supported the revised proposal “because I believe it codifies the board’s commitment and my commitment to making sure that all students are safe. We do have certain groups of students who are bullied at much higher rates than other students.
San Diego parents not only protested this CAIR-sponsored program, they filed a lawsuit against the school district to stop it.
But lawyers with the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) sued the school districtin May, claiming the program did place Muslim students above others, violating the First Amendment’s establishment clause, the Fourteenth Amendment and California law barring assistance to religion. They also claimed the anti-bullying program was a solution to an exaggerated problem.
None of the speakers advocating for CAIR’s continued involvement addressed that Constitutional concern. But the anti-bullying program was never about “promoting a religion” as some critics claimed, said Board President Richard Barerra.
A report by CAIR’s California chapters, “Growing in Faith: California Muslim Youth Experiences with Bullying, Harassment & Religious Accommodation in Schools” inspired the program, FCDF’s #page=9" rel="noopener" target="_blank">lawsuit claims.
The school district’s decision to back away from partnering with CAIR is an important victory, FCDF Executive Director Daniel Piedra told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). But he remains concerned that CAIR still may partner with the school district on other programs. Mohebi and his allies seemed upset that they will not be able to use the school district to further their agenda, Piedra said after the meeting.
“They talk about equality, but it’s really Orwellian because in their philosophy and the school board’s philosophy, they are really saying that all students are equal but that some students are more equal than others,” Piedra said.
FCDF could seek monetary damages, he said, but it may ask a judge to impose aconsent decree compelling the school district to not partner with CAIR again.
Under the now-abandoned program, students accused of bullying Muslim students were supposed to face #page=19" rel="noopener" target="_blank">“restorative justice,” requiring them to reconcile with the other student. The school district would provide monthly reports on the bullying of Muslim students and post them online.
The district’s reversal follows the FCDF’s amended complaint filed last month, which challenged CAIR’s local effort to hide behind the label of being a “civil rights organization.” It pointed to testimony by CAIR co-founder and Executive Director Nihad Awad, who told the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that it lacked jurisdiction over a fight over unionizing CAIR employees because CAIR is a religious organization.
CAIR letterhead includes the invocation, “In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful,” which opens every chapter in the Quran, Charles L. Posner, regional director of the National Labor Relations Board, #page=4" rel="noopener" target="_blank">wrote in an April 7 ruling. This religious acknowledgement goes to the heart of the Establishment Clause‘s separation of church and state.
The loss of the San Diego program is a set-back for CAIR’s desire to take an “anti-Muslim bullying” program national. It represents the biggest government rebuke to CAIR since the FBI instituted a policyin 2008 to break-off outreach programs due to CAIR’s documented history in a Muslim-Brotherhood created Hamas-support network in the United States.
And it should send a message to districts throughout the country, Piedra said, warning CAIR that his organization will sue any public school district that partners with it in a similar anti-bullying program. “We want to be sure for the benefit of our schoolchildren that CAIR is kept out of America’s schools,” Piedra said.
If not for the determined parents in San Diego, what you see in the video below was on its way to being entrenched in the public schools there, not to mention all around the country in the future as CAIR planned.
The Department of Homeland Security is continuing Obama’s policy of using the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) as an outreach partner, despite the Justice Department identifying it as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and designating it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history.
Clarion Project CAIR’s Florida branch has published a letter from the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties thanking it for its years of collaboration. The author says it was written at the request of the Secretary of Homeland Security, General John Kelly. It is dated May 5 and can be seen at Pamela Geller’s website.
“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appreciates your years of support and partnership with the Department’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, working on issues central to the DHS mission, including identifying civil rights and civil liberties concerns in the homeland security context,” it states.
The Justice Department designated CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator during the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a Muslim Brotherhood front that was financing Hamas until it was shut down. The Justice Department identified CAIR as an “entity” of the Muslim Brotherhood’s branch in America, specifically its “Palestine Committee” tasked with aiding the Hamas terrorist group.
The DHS’ outreach with CAIR clashes with the Justice Department’s official policy banning the use of CAIR as a liaison to the Muslim-American community. In 2013, the Justice Department released a report reprimanding several FBI offices for their collaborations with CAIR in violation of policy.
FBI personnel were required in 2008 to begin “refraining from participating in any CAIR-sponsored events, avoiding being photographed with leaders of CAIR and not engaging with CAIR in events such as fundraisers.”
“[I]n order to stop CAIR senior leadership from exploiting any contact with the FBI, it is critical to control and limit any contact,” the report stated.
The Justice Department and FBI leadership pointed to evidence linking CAIR to Hamas and instituted the policy in 2008 to “ensure that the FBI is not supporting individuals who support extremist or terrorist ideologies.”
When the federal government engages CAIR like the DHS is doing, it gives CAIR legitimacy and a platform. Letters like these and pictures with government officials are used to fundraise, win support from Muslim-Americans, gain access to influential persons, have media segments booked and showcase its “moderate” credentials. All of this increases CAIR’s power and standing as the self-proclaimed representatives of the Muslim community.
Making matters worse is the fact that the letter was addressed to Hassan Shibly, an inflammatory activist whose extremism I exposed before he joined CAIR and was a guest speaker at Clarence High School in New York. You can read more about Shibly and CAIR-Florida’s extremism here.
Hopefully, the attribution to Secretary Kelly is just a standard formality and he didn’t actually request that this letter be written. Unfortunately, we do not know his position on designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, so we cannot responsibly assume this is the case.
On the positive side, DHS has withdrawn grants to several Islamic groups with unsatisfactory backgrounds and activities.
Earlier, four Muslim groups rejected counter-extremism funds they were previously granted as a means of protesting President Trump, a remarkably stupid and counterproductive approach that only hurts the communities they claim to be helping.
Another positive step is that the DHS has Katharine Gorka as an official adviser to the Office of Policy. She agrees with designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and is eager to uplift Muslims who take a staunch stand against Islamofascism. She is the wife of Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to the president known for making TV news anchors feel like they had an anvil fall on their headswhen they ask him confrontational questions.
Secretary Kelly was confirmed on January 20, so he’s had six months in office. By now, DHS policy should have been changed so it is consistent with the Justice Department’s when it comes to CAIR.
If this issue isn’t on his mind with everything that is going on, then it should be after the publication of this embarrassing letter thanking a deceptive Islamofascist group with a history of terror ties and extremism, including questioning whether fallen American servicemen should be honored on Memorial Day.
The question should be why didn’t they search the house of Mohamed Noor, the Somali Muslim killer cop who murdered her in cold blood for no reason? And why is this Somali terrorist wannabe on paid administrative leave and NOT sitting in prison now?
UK Daily Mail (h/t Sara S) Investigators searched Justine Damond’s house for bodily fluids, weapons and drugs after the bride-to-be was shot and killed by a U.S. police officer.
According to court records released on Wednesday, investigators asked for two search warrants, one for the alley behind Justine’s house where she reported a potential rape, and another for her house itself.
Criminal expert Joseph Daly claimed there was no apparent reason for detectives to search the 40-year-old Australian woman’s home.
“I don’t understand why they’re looking for bodily fluids inside her home,” said Joseph Daly, an emeritus professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, referring to one of two recently-released search warrant applications.
“Whose bodily fluids are they looking for? Is she a suspect? I don’t understand why they’re looking for controlled substances inside her home. I don’t understand why they’re looking for writings inside her home. The warrant does not explain that to me.”
Detectives reportedly found nothing of interest in the search of Justine’s home after she was fatally shot by a police officer behind her Minneapolis home on July 15. I
The ‘JEWISH’ Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is nearly as antisemitic as Muslims are. Not surprisingly, the far-left ADL often sides with the George Soros-funded Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in its condemnation of anti-Islam groups and individuals while supporting mass Muslim immigration.
Back in WWII, the ADL would have been classified as “Judenrats,” the kind of Jewish useful idiots (like Soros) who were happy to work with the Nazis against their fellow Jews.

Amid ever-increasing and justified anti-Muslim sentiment from local citizens and acrimony over the construction of yet another Islamic indoctrination center, Muslims in Yonkers are appealing to the Department of Justice to investigate and reverse the ruling against the mosque by a federal judge.
WNYC The Islamic Community Center for Mid-Westchester purchased the $750,000 medieval-revival home in 2015 in order to turn it into a mosque.
Zoning allowed a house of worship, but the following year, acting at the request of a local activist group, city officials designated the early-20th century building (photo below) a historic landmark, citing its unique architectural qualities.
That restricted the Muslims’ ability to renovate it without going to the Yonkers Landmarks Preservation Board for approval.
All Democrats on the Yonkers City Council opposed the decision; all Republicans voted in favor.
The Muslims called the move discriminatory and illegal, and they sued under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. This was the same kind of suit pursued by Muslims in Bernards Township, NJ, which led to an Obama Justice Department settlement. It forced the town to reverse its decision.
Typically, mosque applications are held up due to zoning concerns. The case in Yonkers is the first known to involve a historic designation. But in a ruling late last month, Judge Vincent L. Briccetti wrote that the matter did not rise to a federal violation, and he dismissed the suit.
Omar Mohammedi, the attorney for the Islamic Community Center for Mid-Westchester, said the judge failed to adequately evaluate possible religious discrimination. “We will appeal this decision and will vigorously defend ICCMW and its members’ religious rights,” he said. (Knock yourself out, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch aren’t there to carry your water anymore)
What do people in and out the military think about it?
Twitchy President Trump announcing a ban on transgender people serving in the military has brought criticism from the likes of the pardoned-by-Obama former soldier turned traitor Chelsea Manning and flaming Trump-hater George Takei, but veteran and Wounded Warrior J.R. Salzman has a few things to add:
Donald: With your ban on trans people from the military, you are on notice that you just pissed off the wrong community. You will regret it.
The Islamic Center of Davis, California, has defended Imam Ammar Shahin over a sermon last Friday in which he quoted an antisemitic text and prayed for Allah to “annihilate” Jews “down to the very last one.”
Breitbart In a statement issued Tuesday morning, and e-mailed to Breitbart News, the mosqueclaimed that Shahin’ssermon was quoted out of context, and lashed out against “Islamophobic news organizations.”
It claimed that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) had mis-translated Shahin’s prayer, and that he prayed that Allah “destroy” rather than “annihilate” the Jews responsible for temporarily closing access to the Al-Aqsa mosque (after a Muslim terrorist attack).
The word “destroy,” the mosque claimed, was not a call to violence but merely a “supplication that is generally used against oppressors.” Read the entire statement HERE
Not surprisingly, nowhere in the mosque’s statement did it condemn or even criticize the terror attack earlier this month in which a Muslim shot and killed two Israeli Druze police officers, leading to the temporary closure of access to the mosque.
Moreover, as Breitbart News reported on Monday — after watching the entire video, and not just the portion excerpted by MEMRI — Imam Shahin specifically referred to “a war of faith” against Jews. At no point did Imam Shahin suggest “that the conflict is not with Jews or any specific group of people,” as the mosque claims.
Ah yes, once again…securing Sweden’s place as the undisputed (Muslim) rape capital of Europe.
Translated fromFria Tider via 10NEWSThe Swedish mother of two was gang-raped to the sound of laughter and joyful shouts by at least nine refugees at a refugee camp in Småland Mariannelund, Sweden.
The woman was almost catatonic after the rape and still feels that she has something stuffed in the genital area. Today, the prosecutor presented the evidence, consisting of semen probes, against nine men, of whom several defends their actions against the woman.
‘She is a whore,’ says the Swedish Migration Board Muslim interpreter Bahaduri Rafi, (above) 25, who is one of the defendants.
Prosecutor Gunnar Brodin disclosed that forensic scientists found 48 semen stains in the refugee apartment where the gang rape took place. Inside the victim’s rectum and farther up the digestive system was recovered sperm from at least four people. In total, nine men are connected to the rape.
Besides the sadistic gang rape, which was committed by Afghan refugees, the mother of two was close to death because her airways was clogged during the rape, stated courtroom clerk Charlotte Bokelund during the trial. …
The mother of two, who have chosen to follow the trial, repeatedly felt so bad that she had to leave the courtroom to vomit.
But what can you say when you see idiotic statements like this from Swedish feminazis?
