Big Surprise: CAIR Gloats Over HLF Trial Acquittals, Mistrial

By Debbie Schlussel
I expected I’d get the CAIR e-mail gloating in my inbox over today’s Holy Land Foundation trial verdicts. And, sure enough, I did. That was one of the reasons a victory in today’s trial was so important. CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator, along with a host of other Islamic organizations that front for and support terrorism. And CAIR raised money for the Holy Land Foundation, despite loud “clues” that it was financing HAMAS “martyrs.”
And with today’s Justice Department loss, which I predicted, there is the highly audible cheering of Islamists–including CAIR–all over America, also very predictable. But as for CAIR’s reaction, while I disagree that these were innocents–CAIR knows and we all know (but for the jury) that they were knowingly funding terrorism–I can’t say I disagree with this excerpt of it. We lost, they won. And the consequences are deadly:


CAIR: Council on American-HAMASic Relations

Gloats About Getting Away With Terrorist-Funding

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called today’s declaration of a mistrial in the case against the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Muslim charity a “stunning defeat” for the prosecution.
CAIR also said the absence of a single guilty verdict on 197 charges brought by the prosecution in the terror financing trial will help reinforce the Muslim community’s faith in America’s system of justice.
The jury initially brought back “not guilty” verdicts on the government’s most serious charges of material support for terrorism against the five HLF officials. However, jurors were deadlocked on other charges, forcing the judge to declare the mistrial.

The rest of their gloatation here (thanks to LGF).
Yes, it is a stunning defeat for good and right. And it does help reinforce Muslims’ faith in our “justice” system, because no matter what, there won’t be justice against them only for them and against us.
It is an incredible failure for those who tried this case. Though, they will hardly know it. They will move on to the next case, while more lives will be lost.
Taking bets: How long ’til the Holy Land for Relief and Development puts its shingle back up and once again opens for biz? Not long. Don’t worry. If not under the HLF name, then reconstituted under another.
It’s coming. And we’re losing.

I find it laughable that on CAIR’s website, they have cherry picked an AP story and reprinted it with no mention that three jurors disputed the not guilty verdict which, was the reason for the mistrial. Further, they seem to be content allowing their readers to assume the prosecution won’t retry the case. CAIR is a biased propaganda machine and their omissin of reporting all the facts of a case they have hung their hat on is proof of that. Hopefully, readers of CAIR’s site will take it upon themselves and follow the link to the AP story and read, as Paul Harvey would say, “The Rest of the story”. Maybe then, some of them will start to question their messenger. I also was intrigued by he comment of another juror who stated that he tought the Israeli witness couldn’t be believed because he “EXPECTED” an Israeli to be anti-palestinian. Now if that isn’t an admission of disregarding the facts of the case based on personal assumptions I don’t know what is.
I don’t view this as a big loss. This fight isn’t over. It certainly is a setback, but one that we can draw lessons from which to successfully retry this case and prosecute others in the future. This setback should strengthen our resolve, not fill us with a sense of defeatism. Though frustrated, I have confidence that we will prevail, especially if people like yourself continue to man the front lines and report the truth, for in the end, truth always wins. The fact the truth for the reason of the mistrial is being ignored by CAIR is a small win in and of itself.

This is totally off topic….but why does Halle Berry get a pass after making a totally anti-Semitic remark ?
Yet, everybody jumps over Ann Coulter for essentially …nothing ???????
Halle Berry’s is the far worse remark, because she was talking about physical characteristics, in a very derogative way.
Coulter was just discussing religious differences in general.

As bad as this is, it comes as no surprise to me. The biggest problem facing this country today is that the majority have become panty-waisted, mambypamby dweebs who have been assimilated by the libs. It’s this feel good, tingly, BS, instead of decisive thinking, that has brought on this debacle.
To that add the growing failure on behalf of the U.S. Attorney’s Office to take a hardline, proactive stance and nail these bastards to the wall instead of cowering in the face of pathetic whiners crying for fairness. There is no fairness in dealing with islamo-terrorists; they need to be exterminated like rats in the street.
I figure they’ll be a ration of incoming my way after this but I’ll be happy to pass out quarters so those malcontents can call someone who gives a f**k. There’s no fighting fire with fire…you get the biggest bucket of water and extinguish it for good!
I’ll bet it’s only a matter of time before the people who truly care about this nation take it upon themselves to adjudicate this mess because our lackluster government can’t seem to get it done.
