The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been charged with fraud and cover up perpetrated against hundreds of victims, the Clarion Project (CP) reported on Wednesday.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) will stand trial on charges of fraud and cover up for alleged crimes perpetrated against hundreds of victims, according to a new ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

CP stated that the case against CAIR National was originally dismissed by a federal judge but unanimously overturned by the appellate court. Two cases are involved in the suit, which the appellate court consolidated into one, since both cases involve racketeering, a federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) crime.

The lawsuits claim that CAIR National was aware that Morris Days, the “Resident Attorney” and “Manager for Civil Rights” at the now defunct CAIR-Maryland/Virginia chapter in Herndon, Virginia, was in fact not an attorney and that he failed to provide legal services for clients who came to CAIR for legal representation.

David Yerushalmi, senior counsel for the plaintiffs in the case and co-founder of the American Freedom Law Center, stated, “CAIR engaged in a massive criminal fraud in which literally hundreds of CAIR clients have been victimized.”

“In his ruling, Judge Friedman [the original judge] inexplicably ignored material facts that establish CAIR National’s liability and then engaged in a transparently disingenuous ‘weighing’ of the factual evidence he did address …  We are thankful that the appeals court has rectified the trial court’s errors. Now, at long last, our clients will go before a jury and get their day in court, “said Yerushalmi.

CAIR has had a history of ties to terrorism and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) describes itself as “America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group.” In reality, CAIR grew out of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), a group founded in 1981 by Hamas member Mousa Abu Marzook. Marzook is now a senior Hamas official. U.S. Muslim Brotherhood documents clearly identify the IAP as one of its fronts.
