The civil rights manager for CAIR New York, Cyrus McGoldrick, retweeted a message from Ali Abunimah who runs the anti-Israel Electronic Intafada who had tweeted out word from Hamas leader Kahled Meshal:
Does anyone have any doubt left about CAIR and most of their Muslim activists support for Hamas?
Remember, Israel gave up the Gaza strip to help appease Muslims and within 10 days rockets were fired upon them. In a bloody takeover in 2007, Hamas then seized power from the Fatah goverment there. This is a fact even though I heard, during this latest conflict, Islamist supporting liberal reporters tell their TV audience Hamas was elected to power in 2006.
