CAIR Leader Mimics Hamas in Calling for Israel’s Destruction

Joe Kaufman is an expert in the fields of counter-terrorism, foreign affairs and energy independence for America. He has been featured on all major cable networks, including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and C-SPAN. Kaufman has served as a consultant to different government agencies, and he has been instrumental in getting U.S.-based terrorist charities shut down and terror-related individuals put behind bars. Exactly one month prior to the September 11 attacks, Kaufman predicted the attacks by stating that the 1993 World Trade Center bombing was not an aberration and that it would happen again.


The slogan, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” can be heard regularly from the shores of the Gaza Strip, emanating from members of terrorist groups, including Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The river represents the Jordan River, and the sea is the Mediterranean – both sides of Israel. Essentially, this means the destruction of Israel.

Khaled Meshaal, the global head of Hamas, stated something similar, when he made his historic visit to Gaza this month. He said, “Palestine is ours from the river to the sea and from the south to the north.” Just one week previous to that, the leader of another Islamist group, Cyrus McGoldrick, repeated the slogan on Facebook and Twitter. Except he did not state it from the Middle East, he made it from the United States.

McGoldrick is the Civil Rights Manager and spokesman for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR-New York. The national organization of CAIR was founded in June 1994 as a part of the umbrella group created by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook. [Today, Marzook is the number two leader under Meshaal.] As well, CAIR was named a party to Hamas financing by the U.S. Justice Department for two federal trials against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). CAIR had asked people to donate money to the terrorist HLF charity via CAIR’s national website.

When fighting broke out between Hamas, who was firing hundreds of rockets into Israeli civilian neighborhoods, and Israel, who was responding to the Hamas fire by targeting terrorist infrastructure, McGoldrick didn’t flinch as to which side he was supporting. On November 12 on Twitter, he wrote, “Gaza under attack for the last few days. May G-d protect them [Hamas] and grant them victory.” Just two days earlier, McGoldrick had attended a CAIR banquet in Tampa, Florida. Just one day earlier, he had praised Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On November 15, McGoldrick tweeted, “Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers. They [Hamas] have the right to resist, to defend themselves, ‘by any means necessary.’”

The ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, brokered by Egypt, took place on November 21. However, that did not stop McGoldrick from tweeting and posting to his Facebook page one week later, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” When McGoldrick said that “Palestine” was “land occupied by foreign settlers,” he wasn’t referring to Gaza and the West Bank; he was referring to all of Israel.

This was not the first terrorist-related cause McGoldrick has taken up against the Jewish state. In February 2012, he took up the cause of Khader Adnan, a spokesman and senior West Bank leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), following Adnan’s capture by Israeli authorities. At the time, Adnan was on a hunger strike in protest of his imprisonment. Adnan had, as well, done the same when he was imprisoned by the Palestinian Authority in 2010.

On February 20, McGoldrick asked his Twitter followers to pray for Adnan and others. They included an al-Qaeda-related operative named Aafia Siddiqui, who had been sentenced in 2010 to 86 years in prison for shooting at and attempting to kill American soldiers and FBI agents in Afghanistan, and al-Qaeda-related Tarek Mehanna, who received a 17.5 year sentence for also plotting to kill Americans. McGoldrick tweeted, “Stand up, my people. Pray for Aafia, for Khader Adnan, for Tarek and Fahad and the rest. And then resolve to be the change you want to see.” About Siddiqui, Mehanna and the Holy Land Foundation, he wrote, “We have to fight for them.”

He further tweeted, “We must all be Khader Adnan. I don’t believe in hunger strikes, but our brother is struggling with the only thing he has left: his life.” McGoldrick made no mention of all the innocent people, including Americans, who had brutally lost their lives by the hands of the group Adnan represents. PIJ, like Hamas, targets Israeli civilians and tourists with rockets, suicide bombings and other acts of terror.

Of course, if McGoldrick wishes to see Israel destroyed, he would not think to mention these innocents in his pro-jihad narrative.

McGoldrick, like his fellow CAIR leaders, harbors a virulent hatred towards Israel. However, while many CAIR representatives are more circumspect in revealing their true feelings by not publicly calling for Israel’s destruction, McGoldrick has no such qualms about his support for Hamas’s genocidal intentions.

McGoldrick’s terror-supporting statements reveal the true face of CAIR and should debunk any claims that the organization makes about being involved in civil rights. The group was created as a cog of a terrorist group, and little has changed since.

    Charming language from "victims of colonialism." The left will tell you it's a natural reaction to "oppression." Really?

    Google other charming "liberation" rhetoric like, "First comes Saturday, then comes Sunday," and, "Palestine is our land and the Jews our dogs."

    The veneer of lies dissolves so quickly that I have no patience for the liars or their dupes when it comes to Israel. No patience at all for this insane appeasement.

    The Muslims have a saying: "First [destroy] the Saturday People (Jews)… then the Sunday People (Christians)."

    Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. – One out of every five people in the world is now a Muslim! – One out of every three babies born in the world today are Muslim. – Apparently the Muslims can still breed with a vengeance much faster than they can purge each other off the planet.

    Interestingly, the Obama administration and CAIR never mention "hate groups" in 'Islamic countries. Actually, they don't need hate groups as long as hate is institutionalized right from their local mosques! For sure the most dangerous time on the streets for non-Muslims is right after the mosque prayers end on Friday evening! –

      Because they use taqiyya and kitman, names and titles don't mean diddle squat. CAIR was originally founded by Hamas. All Islamic organizations are hate groups that are intertwined with one another. They have one common thread, and that's the total destruction of Israel, and to advance the cause of Islam's dominance over the world.

  • kafir4life

    The terrorist supporters at the terrorist supporting cair are probably moon god worshippers. It's possible that they believe that the pedophilic madman, mohamat the dog faced pig is their "perfect man" who all the terrorists and terrorist supporters wish to emulate. That's the same mohamat that invented the gutter cult of islam, who shat the contents of the terror guide the koran into the arabian sands after a hearty meal of his favorite lover, the pig he called "dad". From what I've seen, muslims are the worst of humanity, gutter cultists all.

        "Palestine is our land and the Jews our dogs."

        Quote that and ask them to explain it away. Many people can deny knowing what kind of freedom the Fakestinians have in mind, being observers of the religion of peace and all of that, but referring to their "oppressors" as "our dogs" is absurdly hostile and delusional. So even if they continue with their BS about oppression, you have to wonder how you can trust the testimony of delusional freaks who talk about being victims and then refer to their "oppressor" as being dogs they own.

        That's not much testimony alone, but if anyone will get a clue to look deeper at the real evidence, that seems like something that might wake them up they have any chance to.

    Man must be governed by YHVH or it will be ruled by tyrants. William Penn

    This is something I learned recently. Praying to god or lord is a title it is not HIS name. We have been told it is I AM WHO I AM. Do people know who they are praying to when they pray? It clearly states in Matthew 23:39 "For I say to you, you shall see Me no more until you say, "Blessed is He who comes in the name of YHWH". Because the men who printed the Torah determined not to take the name of the LORD in vain that each time LORD is in the Holy Bible the true name of YHVH was replaced by LORD. All of the Scriptures have been changed. When the scrolls were discovered this fact was made clear to few but not to the masses. Hosea 5:15 "I will not return again to My place till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; in their affliction they will earnestly seek Me 6:1 Come let us return to YHWH; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken but he will bind us up".

    Yahweh's only composed prayer, the Aaronic blessing, given by Yahweh to Moses:

    Yahweh Bless thee and keep thee
    Yahweh make His face to shine on thee and
    Be gracious unto thee
    Yahweh lift up His Countenance upon thee
    and give you, His children, His peace.

    Powerful and Dynamic – in the holy name of Yeshua Amen.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "All of the Scriptures have been changed. When the scrolls were discovered this fact was made clear to few but not to the masses. "

      Cite your evidence please. So you have secret knowledge eh? The reverse is true. most people think they have been changed but the original sources have been available all along in some form or another, with virtually no changes at all other than what we would call font style.

      There have always been bogus paraphrased translations that claim to improve the meanings, but liars have been around for longer than the scriptures. That is what helps make people think they can't rely on any version, and why people repeat claims like yours.

      • Mary Sue

        Speaking of who people are praying to, I get annoyed when people think it's OK to call the Judeo-Christian God "Allah" because Christians in the Middle East apparently do. I do not want "Jehovah" in any way associated with the name of the god of the green cheese orb.

      To set the record straight. McGoldrick is not "half Irish" as you claim. He is described and referred to as of "Irish decent" and be assured that that "Irish”, referred to, is "Northern-Irish, hence protestant and of Scottish origin", not Catholic Ireland, "Irish".
      You said
      "Anti-Semitism is as Irish as "Guiness' and McGoldrick's Iranian half speaks volumes, as is the fact that he'sa CAIR official."
      The Irish are not anti-Semitic. The 6th President of Israel Chaim Herzog was born in Ireland. Ireland is regarded as the most religiously and generally tolerant nation t in the WORLD, despite 1000 years of British occupation and oppression. Ireland currently appears to support the perception of “Palestinians” as victims and I suspect this derives from our own “victim complex” embedded in our DNA as a function of said occupation and oppression. Most Irishmen support Israel.
      Ireland has around 2000 Jews. They are treated the same as all Irishmen. The history of the Jews in Ireland from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_
