InfluenceWatch Podcast #299: The Trouble with CAIR

You would think that nobody remotely close to power in the United States would praise the barbarous attacks by the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas against Israel of early October 2023. But one very prominent activist group’s leader did: The Council on American Islamic Relations or CAIR, whose national executive director, Nihad Awad, told the American Muslims for Palestine convention that he “was happy to see the people of Gaza break the siege on October 7.” Joining me to discuss the background, influence, and future of CAIR are my colleague Ryan Mauro and Dexter Van Zile, managing editor of the Middle East Forum’s Focus on Western Islamism (FWI).
Listen to “Episode 299: The Trouble With CAIR” on Spreaker.
