Dr. Ben Carson Continues to Call for Thorough Investigation of U.S. Muslim Group CAIR
“Alexandria, Va. – January 14, 2016 – Dr. Carson, retired neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate, continues to call for the U.S. government to conduct a full investigation into the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim group. CAIR has extensive ties to foreign terrorist groups, such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and was once named by federal prosecutors as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a plot to facilitate terrorist financing.
CAIR has repeatedly and openly expressed support for terrorism, disdain for the U.S. Constitution and a desire for America to be ruled under Sharia law. Three Muslim countries, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have designated the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates, which include CAIR, as terrorist organizations.
CAIR has long hidden behind a thin veil of advocacy, using political correctness to attack anyone who would expose their extremist roots. We can’t let a fear of offending obscure domestic terrorists prevent us from subjecting CAIR to the full scrutiny of law enforcement. CAIR’s ideals and activities do not represent the views of America’s peace-loving and patriotic Muslim communities. We must investigate this organization immediately in order to safeguard the security of the American people.”

Why the U.A.E. is calling 2 American groups terrorists
– Washington Post – 2014
“United Arab Emirates released a list of designated terrorist groups and organizations over the weekend, with more than 80 different groups from around the world blacklisted. The list covers a variety of well-known names, including al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, al Shabab and Boko Haram.
It is the inclusion of two very specific groups, however, that made the list a hot topic on a number of right wing U.S. news sites. Two American groups that represent Muslims — the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society — had been designated terrorist groups by the Gulf state.”
