The Council on American-Islamic Relations, an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror-financing plot, has launched a mobile phone app called “Making Democracy Work for Everyone” that enables Muslims to quickly and efficiently report “hate crimes.”
CAIR, in a statement, called it “an important feature during a period of increased hate incidents targeting American Muslims and other minority groups.”
“It has been on the back burner for some time. Its development got accelerated though with the election of Donald Trump,” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told CNN.
Hooper, claiming “hate crimes” are being reported on a daily basis, said he hopes the ease of using the app will make the number of incidents reported closer to the number that actually occur.
CNN pointed out that the app’s launch came a week after a Muslim teen was attacked and killed near a Virginia mosque.
But authorities eventually classified the baseball-bat beating of Nabra Hassanen by an illegal alien as a road-rage accident.
And while CAIR recently claimed a 57 percent increase in anti-Muslim incidents in 2016 over the previous year, WND has reported many incidents the organization has reported as hate crimes are found to be misreported or even fabricated.
‘Real time’ report
Hooper told CNN anyone who reports an incident through the app will be helped either through CAIR or another organization.
The app also offers advice on constitutional rights when a Muslim is contacted by law enforcement, Homeland Security or other officials.
CAIR civil-rights attorney Gadeir Abbas said it also can be used in real time when someone is detained at U.S. Customs, for example.
CNN noted that in 2012, the Sikh Coalition developed a mobile app that allowed users to report incidents of airport profiling and make official complaints to the Transportation Security Administration and the DHS.
CAIR has sued the authors of a WND Books exposé, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America,” which documented the group’s radical ties. A trial in the case is expected to commence this fall.
According to evidence entered in a Hamas terror-financing case, CAIR was founded by figures associated with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the worldwide movement that has stated its intent to transform the U.S. into an Islamic state. The Justice Department later designated CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case. More than a dozen CAIR leaders have been charged or convicted of terrorism-related crimes.
An FBI chart obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request shows connections between CAIR and Hamas.
