Mike Evans, founder of the Friends of Zion Heritage Center and Museum in Jerusalem and a lifelong warrior against antisemitism, says the Council on American-Islamic Relations has become a dangerous organization and is fighting within to destroy the United States.
"CAIR is the problem. I've been dealing with this for decades," says Evans, who was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his tireless work against antisemitism. "The new wars of the 21st century are ideological wars. What CAIR is purporting is an ideological belief system and, unfortunately, it's a belief system that is supported by the liberal left and even many in the Biden administration.
"These are spiritual wars and they are economic wars where hundreds of billions of dollars can travel through the speed of light and corporations now have more money than countries. There are proxy wars where countries hire subcontractors, like China using North Korea, Iran using Hamas and Hezbollah.
"Democracies are becoming irrelevant. By the time they realize there is a war, it's either won or lost. Demons don't clear customs. CAIR has an enormous reach in America. It's like metastasized tumors growing in the organs of the world's greatest democracy. Instead of caring human beings sounding the alarm, they are feeding the cancer."
A coalition of more than 2,000 Orthodox Jewish Rabbis on American public policy issues has condemned a report from CAIR that says "Islamophobia" is in the mainstream, calling the report antisemitic and pro-terrorism.
Rabbi Yaakov Menken, the managing director for the Coalition of Jewish Values, told Fox News, "In every case, CAIR is deliberately claiming that to reject terrorism is anti-Muslim. It is hard to imagine something that incites animus towards Islam and all who practice it more than the idea that tolerance for Islam requires acceptance of atrocities committed by purported believers."
CJV Midwestern Regional VP Rabbi Ze'ev Smason said in a statement provided to Fox News that CAIR deserved "Robust condemnation for spreading hate under the guise of religion."
Jewish rabbis connected CAIR with the terrorist group Hamas and the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which the U.S. government shut down in 2001. In 2008, Holy Land Foundation for Relief leaders received life sentences in jail for "funneling $12 million to Hamas," a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.
"I'm the person who blew the whistle on the Holy Land Foundation initially," Evans said. "I even debated an FBI agent on a local television in Dallas-Fort Worth who had taken the position that they weren't involved in supporting Hamas. This is a perfect example of the blindness that happens and the dumbing down of America all in the name of cancel culture and political correctness that gets Jews and Americans killed."
"CAIR was founded by individuals associated with Hamas, a genocidal terror organization to provide a PR front and support the Hamas agenda in the U.S.," CJV President Rabbi Pesach Lerner told Fox News. "It was an unindicted co-conspirator in the federal Holy Land Foundation anti-terror case, and now employs the charge of 'Islamophobia' as a cudgel to attack foundations, organizations and outspoken individuals wo call it out correctly and truthfully as an apologist for terrorism."
In a release, the CJV noted that "the absolute majority of hate crimes motivated by religious bias in the United States are committed against Jews, exceeding crimes against Muslims by over five to one. It also stated that the harassment of Jewish students have faced on college campus have often been at the hands of Muslim groups and Students for Justice in Palestine. The CJV claimed those "glorify terrorism and antisemitism."
CAIR released a statement condemning the recent hostage situation in a Jewish synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, but noted that the organization "did so after previous statements contributed to the hostile environment in which it took place."
