CAIR National was started by leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine, an overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. THe FBI broke-off relations with them for their refusal to discuss links between their executives and Hamas. One of those leaders is CAIR's Executive Director and co-founder Nihad Awad. Like the Muslim Brotherhood, they often spew hate towards Israel. They use bullying tactics like offensive name-calling against critics in hopes of discrediting them or shutting them up. CAIR also uses Iranian TV (Press TV) to blast the U.S. and works non-stop against national security efforts that are in place to prevent another terror attack. CAIR even has a director in San Francisco who is a self-described anarchist!
