CAIR -- a 'fraud machine'

A Judeo-Christian law firm that fights for faith and freedom is hoping to expose what it believes was massive fraud by a radical Islamic organization.

The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a lawsuit in 2008 on behalf of several former clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) who claimed that organization's Herndon, Virginia office failed to provide them needed legal counsel.

Yerushalmi, DavidDavid Yerushalmi, co-founder and senior counsel at AFLC, says the person serving as CAIR's resident attorney and manager for civil rights at the now defunct chapter was, in fact, not an attorney.

"They finally woke up to the fact their Herndon office was essentially running a fraud machine," Yerushalmi reports. "And instead of coming clean, they did the classic cover-up -- and that's typical of a criminal organization. CAIR, of course, has been identified by the U.S. government as a Hamas/ Muslim Brotherhood front group."

But he finds it unfortunate that the government, even going back to the Bush years, has refused to prosecute CAIR.

"There is a victim narrative going on in the Muslim-American community that is not different from other victimization narratives, and that is the government is picking on Muslim-Americans; there's no reason to be arresting all these jihadists; they're using entrapment; they're not real jihadists," the AFLC co-founder lists. "And so they decided not to prosecute."

Yerushalmi finds it mind-boggling that CAIR is allowed to exist as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. But he hopes his firm's lawsuit will force CAIR to face the music before an American jury for its fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
