The Council of American Islamic Relations is a Muslim brotherhood outfit. Their Texas branch was involved with the Hamas linked Holy Land Foundation. Ghassan Hitto was the Vice President of the Dallas/Ft. Worth chapter of CAIR. He has now been named President for the Syrian Islamist rebel government.
The man chosen Monday to head Syria’s opposition government is a naturalized American who worked closely with Muslim Brotherhood affiliates in the United States, the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report (GMBDR) reported.
Ghassan Hitto spent years in Texas where he actively supported defendants in the Hamas-support prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). The charity and five former officials were convicted in 2008 on 108 counts of illegally routing money to Hamas.
Hitto also served as vice president of CAIR’s Dallas-Fort Worth chapter, GMBDR reported. He also was secretary-treasurer with the American Middle Eastern League for Palestine, which GMBDR said is another name for the Islamic Association of Palestine. CAIR founders had been IAP directors. In addition, Hitto is listed as a director of the Muslim American Society’s Youth Center in Dallas.
A New York Times report Tuesday cast Hitto as “the choice of Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood, a group that has long been banned and persecuted under the Assad family’s government and that plays a powerful role in the coalition.”
The Obama Regime and the quislings of the McCain Wing of the GOP are actively supporting an anti-American organization. The people calling for Syrian intervention really need their heads examined.
The naming of Ghassan Hitto as head of the Syrian Rebels has vindicated those who claimed that CAIR was a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. No one can ever say CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are not connected.
