CAIR Civil Rights Manager Endorses Hamas Terrorism Against Israel

Cyrus McGoldrick is CAIR’s Civil Rights Manager in New York and a product of Columbia’s notorious Middle Eastern Studies department.

CAIR already has extensive links to Hamas, so it’s no surprise that during the Hamas attacks on Israel, McGoldrick’s Twitter account began trending Hamas’ way.

Cyrus McGoldrick began describing the assassination of Hamas leaders as the death of “resistance leaders”

Then there were prayers for a Hamas victory.


And growing belligerency from Cyrus McGoldrick


McGoldrick began retweeting messages from Lamis Deek, the lawyer for Ahmed Ferhani, the attempted synagogue bomber who boasted of wanting to kill Jews. Like her client, Deek’s Twitter messages were full of demented racist hatred for Jews.

And calls for terrorists to invade Israel


Finally Cyrus McGoldrick openly endorsed Hamas terrorism.

    Nitsana Darshan-Leitner is right on the money about the radical left and NGO's
    November 16, 2012.

    As I write you this message, the IDF continues to target the Islamic terrorists and their missiles in terrorist controlled Gaza, under the code name Operation “Pillar of Defense.” Unlike the terrorist murderers, our soldiers operate in the hopes of minimizing civilian casualties.

    The security branches and the army have an obligation and right to retaliate with targeted killings for each and every rocket launched into Israeli civilian areas.

    In 2005, after a number of “human rights” groups criticized this tactic, I represented 25 residents of Jerusalem in a petition to the High Court of Israel. The plaintiffs were simple commuters who utilized public buses, students who attended Hebrew University, parents of young children and regular residents who visited pizza shops and cafes. They were all united by a desire not to be killed by suicide bombers and to not have to necessarily rely upon the IDF to undertake preventive action to safeguard their lives.

    We argued that targeted strikes were justified and that there was a clear duty to carry them out to safeguard Israel’s civilian population. Arguing on the other side was a massive coalition of left-wing and Palestinian groups, European NGOs and professors. They claimed targeted killings were violations of international law.

    In December 2006, the High Court handed down its historic decision. It held that the targeted killings policy did not contradict international law, nor was it a disproportionate use of force against Palestinian terrorists.

    Israel is a civilized and lawful democracy. It has a legal and moral right to utilize targeted killings against the criminal terrorist organizations which are hiding behind Gaza’s civilian population like cowards.

    Terrorists that deprive sleep from the eyes of children in southern Israel should be permanently deprived of sleep. They must know that they are a moving target at every coming moment.

    With prayers for Israel and her soldiers,

    Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, head of Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center

    It is those evil idiotic hamas that love to start troubles. Israel chose peace, not hamas. Hamas is a very deadly political cult. God from Heaven will always protect Israel and He will condemn the deadly cult of Islam. Praise the good Lord God from Heaven that I am not muslim and I never will be muslim.

    McGoldrick is just another CAIR puppet to Hamas. CAIR should be banned and it's members tried for aiding the enemy.

    “Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers. They have the right to resist, to defend themselves, “by any means necessary.” If, by “foreign settlers,” McGoldrick means the israelies, yes, they certainly do.
