CAIR’s stated mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect Muslim civil rights, promote justice for Muslims, and empower Muslims in America.
Washington Standard Designated Islamic terror group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has announced that it is launching its 2020 “Muslims Vote” campaign that seeks to empower supremacist Muslims in America by “increasing their political capacity and presence in the 2020 General Election.”
Notice, that they do not correctly refer to our representatives as representatives nor senators nor a president, but “government officials.” Keep that in mind because not only does CAIR represent Islam, but they also represent Islamic Sharia as well.
Does the questionaire ask any relevant constitutional stances of these people who are asking for their vote? Not really. You can tell by their questions that they consider themselves Muslims FIRST and FOREMOST, not Americans. And the question that do not focus on Muslims/Islam, show their desire for a socialist government.
Questions in RED are predominantly Islam-related or Muslim immigration-related:
- Fostering Mutual Respect for Muslims: Do you support a welcoming environment that fosters mutual respect for all religious beliefs, traditions, and heritages in the United States?

- In addressing the school-to-prison pipeline, do you support policies that promote restorative justice and conflict de-escalation and resolution practices as opposed to disciplinary approaches (suspension, expulsion or arrest) in addressing student misconduct?

And here we have the smarmy little executive director of CAIR, Nihad Awad, talking about his “formula” for achieving Islamic political power in the United States.
IPT Nihad Awad, a co-founder and executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has a vision for America’s Islamic future which he calls “the formula.”
“So I’m telling you tonight we are going to work in the next years, Inshallah (Allah willing], to elect at least 30 Muslims in the Congress,” he said. “This number is equivalent to our size and our potential as American Muslims. Including at least two [U.S.] senator Muslims.”
Problem is, his math is way off.
Thirty additional Muslim members of the U.S. House and Senate would constitute 5.6% of Congress (The actual percentage of Muslims in the U.S. in 2019 is 1.1% or 3.3 million). According to the most recent Pew research data, there will be about 8 million American Muslims in 2050, or 2.1 percent of the total United States population.
He also envisioned Muslim federal judges, and a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Awad’s ambitions echo much sharper language from CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad. Ahmad told a 1998 audience in California:
