WND Legal Defense Fund Against CAIR
A lawsuit brought by the Council on American-Islamic Relations against undercover investigators who probed the group’s connection to radical jihad and its founding as a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood is headed for trial this fall.
CAIR filed suit in 2009 against former federal investigator Dave Gaubatz and his son, Chris Gaubatz, after the two published their findings in the WND Books expose’ “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”
Attorney Daniel Horowitz, who represents the Gaubatzes, told WND a trial will likely be set for next year, and the case will not settle unless CAIR dismisses and pays the Gaubatzes’ attorney’s fees. He added his defense “will include the argument that CAIR cannot suffer damages because a member of a criminal terror conspiracy cannot collect damages when this participation is exposed.”
“Muslim Mafia” documents CAIR’s support of radical jihad, recounting its origin as a front group for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the worldwide movement that has stated its intent to transform the U.S. into a Saudi-style Islamic state.
New defense attorney fees for the trial are expected to exceed $200,000 – and that’s where the help is needed to hand CAIR, which claims to be a Muslim civil rights group while actually being arguably the most important Muslim Brotherhood front group in the U.S., a well-deserved defeat.
