    Four House Republicans on Wednesday accused the nation's largest Muslim advocacy group of trying to "infiltrate" Capitol Hill by placing interns in the offices of lawmakers who handle national security issues.

    The four lawmakers, members of the anti-terror caucus, asked for an investigation into the Council on American Islamic Relations after discovering an internal memo noting the group's strategy. They also highlighted a new book by Paul Sperry titled "Muslim Mafia," scheduled for release on Thursday, which claims the group has been actively infiltrating Congress.

    Reps. Sue Myrick of North Carolina, Trent Franks of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and John Shadegg of Arizona asked the Internal Revenue Service to determine whether CAIR deserves its nonprofit status. They also are asking their colleagues to review a summary of findings that led the Justice Department to name CAIR as a co-conspirator in a terrorism case.

    The internal memo, provided to FOXNews.com, stated that CAIR would "focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community."

    If it's actually true then we could have one hell of a problem on our hands and the back lash could get nasty.

    wouldn't surprise me, these CAIR people always make speeches where they bash America while creating excuses for Islamic terrorists, but how can we blame them when the President does the same exact thing?

    Who can blame CAIR for wanting to be AIPAC?

    Hell, I'd like to be AIPAC. More power than anything else on Earth.

    Has anyone read the memo in the question? It's a pretty standard interest group memo.
    Those evil Muslims organizing themselves into political interest groups? The horror!

    One question: why was CAIR singled out for wanting to "focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community"? If that's the worst thing that was found in CAIR's "internal memo," what are we supposed to fear? The fact that it's a special interest group? :cuckoo:

    For what it's worth, I'm not at all affiliated with CAIR or any similar organization. These representatives are nitwits.

    WJ,

    I know in your warped fucking mind the Jews are still your biggest and badest enemy, but there is no comparing AIPAC to CAIR. You of course give over-bloat AIPAC's influence because you are after a skin-head NAZI, reality is not your specialty. I bought up the link mulitple times, which I don't have time to present to you, that AIPAC's political contributions don't even make the charts, because they are no where near other lobbying groups contributions. These contribution you say are what sways Congress, but they are far less funded than CAIR.

    CAIR is an organization that is off shoot of the Muslim brotherhood. They don't give a damn about America and its laws! Funny that you had the Jews so much, but they are on front lines fighting a war that you will eventually fight against Islamic radicals! Islamofacists are just concerned with Israel, US troops in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan or the M.E., they are concerned with human beings not living under Sharia law and human being that are Muslim.

    Explain why Western Europe, particularly France, has been hit with far more terrorist attacks then America. Heck Italy and Germany have been targets!

    You my friend are so scared of the Islamofacist and the 1.5 billion Muslims in the world that you resort to hating the POLITICALLY WEAK and relatively powerless 14 million Jews you are threat to you!

    But CAIR does things like attack free speech of private individuals. The harass media personalities who attack Islamofacism and CAIR altogether! They seek Sharia Law in America! They have glorified the "Magnificient Nineteen!" And they are an offshoot of terrorist organizations of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas!
