CAIR Protected Texas Jihadist Elton Simpson In 2010
Guest post by DMartyr
Back in 2010, when Elton Simpson was under investigation for ties to Islamic terrorist groups, the unindicted co-conspirator Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was advising the Muslim community not to cooperate with the FBI investigation:
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an American Muslim advocacy group with deep ties to the global Muslim Brotherhood, advised Muslims to “use caution” when talking to the FBI about its 2010 investigation into Elton Simpson, who on Sunday carried out a jihadist attack on a “Draw Muhammad” free-speech event in Garland, Texas.
According to a 2010 article in the Arizona Muslim Voice, which describes Simpson as “humble, pious, [and] well liked in the community,” CAIR “sent out media alerts to advise our community to use caution when speaking with the FBI.” The author of the piece, Kawthar Ijai, said at the time that CAIR’s advice “is for our own protection.”
Yet CAIR has the audacity to blame the ‘Draw Muhammad’ event organizers for the attack. Maybe if CAIR encouraged the Muslim community to help root out extremism, us kufar wouldn’t have to deal with savages like Simpson.
