Ohio Group Aligns with Hamas Linked CAIR to Combat “Misinformation” About Islam

Members of CAIR at an annual dinner in Houston.

Six Ohio universities who have been working to combat “misinformation” about the Middle East and Islam have chosen the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as their partner. CAIR has well-documented connections with the terrorist group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

A video promoting the Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle East Studies (NOCMES) states that Muslims are human beings who are often misjudged as terrorists. CAIR was listed as a partner in the effort on a promotional flyer for a NOCMES event.

Jorge Solis, the federal judge for a 2010 U.S. case against the Holy Land Foundation that exposed CAIR as a front group for Hamas, wrote at the time that the government’s evidence created “at least a prima facie case as to CAIR’s involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas.” CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator during that trial.
