The Center for Security Policy has discovered that something called the “Interests Section of Iran” has donated to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group accused of supporting Sunni Hamas and discriminating against Shiites according to some of its former staff.
Frank Gaffney explains:
Even more concerning, was the presence of the “Interests Section of Iran” – a country that does not have an embassy in the U.S., since the countries have long cut off diplomatic relations. The “Interests Section of Iran” is the de facto diplomatic representation of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the United States. And therefore any gifts from the “Interests Section” to CAIR – say, a donation to a fundraiser – would constitute a gift from the government of Iran.
The link also includes videotape of Ahmed Bedier, former director of CAIR’s branch in Tampa, thanking the “Interests Section of Iran” and other donors.
The CAIR brochure also thanks the embassies of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. You’ve got to hand it to CAIR. It’s not an easy task pulling together so many foreign supporters, including those who hate each other, to support your cause.
Now, that’s reaching across the aisle. They just need to work on that part about lying about receiving foreign government support.
