What would say if your tax money was going to fund a terrorist organization? That’s not possible you might respond, not in America. And that would be indicative of how effective the deception campaign has been by the Islamic Counter State in America.

First, a little background. The Holy Land Foundation Trial in 2008 was the largest successfully prosecuted terror financing trial in U.S. History. It revealed a vast and complex terror funding and outreach network in the United States of America.

As part of the trial, and later upheld on appeal, a federal district court found that one of the unindicted co-conspirators was the Council on American Islamic Relations (C.A.I.R.). A mountain of evidence in that trial showed clearly that C.A.I.R. is Hamas.1 Specifically, in 1994, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) created the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).2 Hamas is designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the United States and many other countries.

In 2019, the State of Washington gave a $200,000.00 grant contract to C.A.I.R. for “Benton, Clark, King, Pierce Snohomish, Spokane, and Thurston County” to “Train 75-100 youth ambassadors” and “Produce educational materials, webinars, social media campaign in multiple languages” ostensibly for the census. This raises serious questions. What is the accountability mechanism for the expenditures? What materials are being used including the training materials for the youth?

Today C.A.I.R. tries to hold itself out as a purely civic organization that pursues that conducts outreach for the betterment of the whole community. In fact, he has publicly pledged the “Muslim community’s support and cooperation in every positive effort he will undertake for peace, justice and the betterment of humanity.”3

However, in March, 1994, C.A.I.R. founder and current CEO Nihad Awad stated at Barry University “I am in support of the Hamas Movement…” C.A.I.R. Founder and Chairman Emeritus Omar Ahmad stated in the Argus Newspaper on July 4th, 1998, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant…The Koran, the muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” Yes, he stated that on a day many of were celebrating the Declaration of Independence.

Even more interesting, following a 2004 FBI raid the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States were discovered. One of the documents found listed the leaders of the U.S. Palestinian Committee (Hamas). The list of names included Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad.4

So which is it? A civic organization with laudable goals or a grand deception? Clearly the facts and evidence both in and outside of court show that C.A.I.R. is Hamas. If so, then C.A.I.R. is not just trying to deceive an unwitting American public and elected officials into believing they are just another civic organization. The leaders of C.A.I.R. are also trying to get us to fund the deception, with taxpayer dollars. This falls perfectly in line with the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals for America includingThe Ikwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”5

It has been said that warfare is deception. This is why we must follow the facts and realize if such a grand deception is indeed occurring, we are at war. The Muslim Brotherhood has clearly stated this. Yet, Washington State Taxpayers are funding Hamas and the United States has still not designated the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization. In light of what was proven in the Holy Land Foundation trial that is mind boggling.

So what can you do?

Is your state funding Hamas? Have they petitioned the President to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization? Do your research, get involved, educate your legislators, petition President Trump, and stop the taxpayer funding of the Islamic Counter State. A great place to start is Let’s put freedom back on the offensive where it belongs.

4 Comments on Washington State Taxpayers Are Funding Hamas by Rep. Matt Shea

  1. The Cato Letters
    NO. 73. SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1722. A Display of Tyranny, its destructive Nature, and Tendency to dispeople the Earth.
    “Most of the princes of Europe have been long introducing the Turkish government into Europe; and have succeeded so well, that I would rather live under the Turk than under many of them. They practice the cruelties and oppressions of the Turks, and want the tolerating spirit of the Turk; and if some unforeseen check be not thrown in their way, the whole polity of savage Turkey will be established by them in all its parts and barbarity; as if the depopulation which is already so quick, and taking such dreadful strides, were still too slow.”

    “Turkish government” being Islam in the quote above…and the European princes were bringing Islam in.

    Why would Statists and Authoritarians welcome and “introduce” Islam into a society? What do Muslims do for Statists and Authoritarians?

  2. Yes, my state is also funding Hamas…Virginia is chock full of leftist politicians perfectly willing to fund entities with anti-American agendas.

    From Sen. Warner & Kaine to our racist governor Northam and our rapist Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax to our county Boards of Supervisors, Virginia has reached peak subversion – See The Saudi Arabian “Cultural Mission” EMBASSY in Fairfax County, Va. – you can thank Rep. Gerry Connolly for 10s of thousands of foreign nationals here to undo America.

  3. Just think, we have our own press, BLM, Antifa, radical Dem’s, the Chinese government, many Muslim organizations who are conspiring to destroy our way of life, churches and our government. God help us to help ourselves.
