CAIR-Arizona Executive Director Imraan Siddiqi let his true colors show, tweeting a petition in support of pardoning individuals who were convicted in the largest terror financing trial in American history. During the trial, CAIR was listed as a co-conspirator in the funneling of millions of dollars to Hamas.
Supporting terror isn’t new for CAIR. Hamas-tied CAIR is a repeat offender and has a long history of defending terrorists and terror organizations.
In fact, CAIR has been classified as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates due to it’s association with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Expect more of this from CAIR.

A petition calls for outgoing President Barack Obama to issue a pardon for those convicted in the largest terror financing trial in American history.
A petition calling for President Barack Obama to use his powers of clemency to secure an early release for terror financiers is circulating online. It gained the support of Imran Siddique, the executive-director of the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
CAIR is designated as a terrorist organization itself, by the United Arab Emirates, as it is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Siddique tweeted a link to the petition, which gained 136 retweets (at press time). He also described the trial as a “political lynching.”
The trial was the largest terrorism financing trial in American history. Five senior executives of the Holy Land Foundation, at the time the largest Muslim charity in the United States, were convicted of funneling millions of dollars to Hamas in 2008. An earlier trial in 2007 was declared a mistrial, and an appellate court upheld the sentences in 2011.
CAIR itself was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator at the Holy Land Foundation trial, a designation which was upheld by a judge despite a legal appeal launched by CAIR to have it removed. Read more about the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
