MUSLIM GROUP CONCEDES IT DOESN’T REALLY EXIST
Defense lawyer says ‘Muslim Mafia’ effectively admits its case meritless
The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ latest legal brief in its “Muslim Mafia” lawsuit provides no evidence it suffered damages and effectively concedes it filed the complaint under a false name, concludes a lawyer defending a father-and-son team that conducted an undercover probe to document the Muslim group’s ties to terrorism.
CAIR’s reply to a motion to dismiss its lawsuit against former Air Force special agent P. David Gaubatz and his son Chris, who served a six-month CAIR internship posing as a young Muslim convert, “concedes that they don’t have any legal damages, but they hope they’ll find some,” said attorney Daniel Horowitz, who filed the motion to dismiss in December.
CAIR alleges the Gaubatzes obtained access to the Muslim group’s property under false pretenses, removed internal documents and made recordings of officials and employees “without any consent or authorization and in violation of his contractual, fiduciary and other legal obligations to CAIR.”
However, asserted Horowitz, CAIR is on a “fishing expedition,” filing a lawsuit with the hope that “after the expenditure of unknown amounts of money and time, it might find some damages.”
“If CAIR is conceding that they have no interests that prevent the materials from being disclosed, what is their excuse for trying to suppress the book?” Horowitz asked. “It’s about time the American public put an end to these legal abuses by CAIR.”
[In] compliance with a subpoena served by the FBI, turned over to federal authorities 12,000 pages of internal CAIR documents obtained in the undercover probe that allegedly confirm the D.C.-based Muslim group’s role as a front for terrorist groups that seek Islam’s domination over the U.S.
The documents provided key material for the book “Muslim Mafia,” co-authored by David Gaubatz and “Infiltration” author Paul Sperry. The authors assert CAIR is acting as a front for a conspiracy of the Muslim Brotherhood – the parent of al-Qaida and Hamas – to infiltrate the U.S. and establish Saudi-style Islamic law.
