Designated Terrorist Group CAIR is demanding that Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz cancel an appearance at an event featuring Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, whom CAIR calls a “hate group leader.”
CAIR The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on Sen. Ted Cruz, a presidential candidate, to cancel his scheduled appearance at a conference in New Hampshire later this week because the event is hosted by a group with ties to white supremacists and other speakers include the leader of a Southern Poverty Law Center-designated ‘hate’ group.
Sen. Cruz will reportedly speak at the “New England Freedom Conference,” to be hosted by the Young America’s Foundation on March 27 and 28 featuring Robert Spencer, aco-founder of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) and the website Jihad Watch, both of which have been designated as a “hate group” and part of an “Anti-Muslim Inner Circle (as has BNI) by the radical leftist Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
In a special report, the independent national media watch group Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), identified Spencer as one of the “Dirty Dozen: America’s Leading Islamophobes” who systematically “spread fear, bigotry, and misinformation.”
Two weeks ago, CAIR expressed concern when Sen. Cruz and other likely presidential hopefuls participated in an anti-Islamization summit in South Carolina. In January, CAIR issued an open letter to potential Republican presidential candidates urging them to reject Islamophobia and to reach out to American Muslim voters.

CAIR and several Muslim Brotherhood front groups also demand that Republican Presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, fire Jordan Seculow of ACLJ, whom they call an “anti-Muslim” activist as his PAC advisor.
CAIR A coalition of leading American Muslim civil liberties, human rights, faith, and cultural organizations sent a letter today to former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and his Right to Rise PAC requesting that Jordan Sekulow be removed from his position as senior advisor to the PAC because of his long history of supporting anti-Muslim legislation and ‘Islamophobic’ causes.
(No, it’s because of ACLJ’s long history of helping Christians who are being persecuted in and ethnically cleansed from Muslim countries, advocating for anti-sharia legislation in many states, working to stop the Ground Zero Victory Mosque and supporting Israel )
The letter, sent by the US Council of Muslim Organizations* (USCMO), reads in part:
“We the undersigned American Muslim civil liberties, human rights, faith, and cultural organizations respectfully request that Jordan Sekulow be removed from his position as senior advisor to the Right to Rise PAC because of his history of supporting anti-sharia legislation and anti-Islam causes.
“Sekulow is executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), an organization that in 2011 published an anti-sharia pamphlet titled ‘Shari’a Law: Radical Islam’s Threat to the U.S. Constitution,’ which f
alsely correctly claims that ‘devout Muslims cannot truthfully swear the oath to become citizens of the United States of America.’
“Also in 2011, Sekulow appeared on CBN News to offered ACLJ’s assistance to state legislators who were, ‘serious about writing a law from stopping judges from being able to use Sharia law in court.’ He said ACLJ will ‘walk you through this.’ These comments were in response to a CBN report on efforts around the country to ban Sharia law, including disturbing legislation in Tennessee that Sekulow and ACLJ supported. …
“In 2012 Sekulow and ACLJ supported Oklahoma’s 2012 ‘Save Our State’ Amendment, which prohibited state courts from considering foreign law or Sharia when making rulings. Sekulow supported the bill with an essay titled: ‘In defense of Oklahoma’s Sharia ban.’ …
“In 2010, Sekulow and ACLJ filed a lawsuit to prevent the construction of the Park51 Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan objecting to its two block proximity to the site of the World Trade Center.
These Muslim groups in America, most of which are nothing more than front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood include: US Council of Muslim Organizations members include: American Muslims for Palestine (APM); the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA); the Islamic Center of Wheaton, the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA); the Muslim American Society (MAS); the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA); the Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA); United Muslim Relief; The Mosque Foundation; the American Muslim Alliance (AMA); Baitulmaal; The Mosque Cares (Ministry of Imam W.
