“If he has evidence of non-cooperation, he should bring it forward,” said Baca.
All right. Here goes:
— The California chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) distributed posters urging Muslims: “Build a wall of resistance,” and “don’t talk to the FBI”
— The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) created a fraudulent database greatly exaggerating Muslim cooperation with law enforcement
— MPAC’s vaunted National Anti-Terrorism Council focused less on rooting out jihadists from within American Muslim communities than on protecting Muslims from uncomfortable attention from law enforcement
Baca, meanwhile, has spoken at at least two and possibly as many as ten fundraisers for Hamas-linked CAIR, and has denounced those who criticized him for this as “un-American.” CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Honest Ibe Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements.
Can Lee Baca name one anti-terror measure that CAIR has actually supported?
Los Angeles County sheriff Lee Baca said Monday that there is nothing to support Rep. Peter King’s (R-N.Y.) view that American Muslims are being uncooperative with law enforcement.
“If he has evidence of non-cooperation, he should bring it forward,” said Baca at a forum held today by Muslim-American groups in advance of King’s hearings on radicalization in the Muslim community. “We have as much cooperation as we are capable of acquiring through public trust relationships.”
“I sit on the Major City chiefs association as one of three chairs,” said Baca. “I also sit on the Major County Sheriff’s Association and I’m on the national board of directors of the international association for the sheriffs departments. Here’s the thing: I don’t know what Mr. King is hearing or who he’s hearing it from.”…
