Judge Strikes ‘Scandalous’ Reference to Group’s Terror Ties

The FBI has provided an abundance of evidence that the Council on American-Islamic Relations is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood and its Palestinian branch, Hamas.

And even a Persian Gulf state, the United Arab Emirates, has designated the Washington, D.C.-based organization a terrorist group, putting it in the same category as al-Qaida and ISIS.

But when parents suing the San Diego Unified School District for its alliance with CAIR in an anti-bullying and “anti-Islamophobia” program inserted a reference to CAIR’s terrorist ties in their complaint, a federal judge objected.

San Diego school officials complained that the citation of CAIR’s formation by Hamas operatives in the United States as a propaganda organ and the fact that more than a dozen former CAIR figures have been charged with terrorism-related crimes is “impertinent, immaterial and scandalous,” designed only to “inflame the public,” reported the Investigative Project on Terrorism, IPT.

U.S. District Judge Cynthia Bashant agreed, striking references to CAIR’s radical ties because they are “likely intended to ‘besmirch’ Defendants and cast them in a derogatory light based on SDUSD’s relationship with CAIR.” (Read more from “Judge Strikes ‘Scandalous’ Reference to Group’s Terror Ties” HERE)
