UAE Adds CAIR to Its List of Specially Designated Terrorist Entities


Two Islamic groups in the U.S. that portray themselves as moderate and mainstream expressed shock to learn at the weekend that the United Arab Emirates had included them in a list of terrorist organizations.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which describes itself as “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization,” and the Muslim American Society (MAS), which calls itself “a religious community service organization,” were among more than 80 groups whose designation was approved by the UAE cabinet and announced on Saturday.

Others listed included al-Qaeda and its various affiliates in Pakistan, Syria, Yemen and North Africa; the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL); the Muslim Brotherhood and several of its U.K.- and Europe-based affiliates; and some Iranian-backed radical Shi’ite groups.

Ibrahim Cooper was of course outraged by this striking example of Islamophobia.


Maybe CAIR spent too much time talking about Islamophobic Halloween costumes and too much ignoring all but the worst instances of Islamic terrorism to suit the UAE?

1 Or maybe the UAE realizes that CAIR is just a front group that received funding from HAMAS and other terrorist organizations.

2 Well they don't list Hamas so they must be talking about Muslim Bro/Islamic Jihad ties.

3 Maybe if American Muslims generally did not think CAIR was a bunch of terrorists, the UAE would have acted differently.
