CAIR Asks Prosecutors to Lock Up Journalists Exposing Hamas Supporters; With Penalties From 1 to 5 Years in Prison for Jewish Activists

CAIR Asks Prosecutors to Lock Up Journalists Exposing Hamas Supporters:
With penalties from 1 to 5 years in prison for Jewish activists.
Weeks after the Hamas murders, rapes and kidnappings of Oct 7, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) began meeting with attorney generals around the country.
Beyond CAIR’s existing effort to establish that Muslims, not Jews, were the real victims, the Islamist organization whose roots are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas, were persuading top state prosecutors to go after Jewish anti-terror activists.
CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area staff and Islamist allies met with California Attorney General Rob Bonta and urged him to enforce laws against what the group claimed was “doxxing”. Under California law, doxxing can be punished by up to a year in prison. Bonta has been considering running for governor and might be amenable to doing what it took to win Islamist support.
Shortly afterward, CAIR’s Massachusetts chapter met with Attorney General Andrea Campbell and urged her to create an “anti-doxxing task force” to target pro-Israel and Jewish groups. CAIR MA’s legal director claimed that it had met with Campbell to “flesh out what current laws might apply and what possibly new ones might help in these situations.” The attorney general’s office expressed concern about “harassment”, but fell short of promising to lock up journalists.
There’s no word on whether that task force was ever created, but the obvious target would have been the Jewish activists, organizations and journalists investigating antisemitism at Harvard.

CAIR was worried about anyone exposing its support for terrorism and it had good reason to be.
Next month, CAIR founder and executive director Nihad Awad, who had previously expressed support for Hamas, appeared at the American Muslims For Palestine (AMP) convention, and cheered the Oct 7 attacks, claiming that the Gazans would be “victorious” because they did not fear death, “if they would like to die, they will go to another heaven.”
No one would have known about this Jihadist propaganda if MEMRI, one of the research organizations collecting materials, had not seen it and then ‘doxxed’ CAIR’s boss by posting it.
And if CAIR were to succeed in criminalizing such investigations, the truth about its support for Islamic terrorism and the murder of Jews might have never seen the light of day.
When the video went public, the Biden administration was forced to temporarily break with CAIR and jettison the Islamist hate group from its previously published antisemitism strategy.
But CAIR was already looking for allies in the government looking to criminalize journalism.
California’s ‘doxxing’ laws, created to prevent cyberstalking against women by ex-boyfriends, penalized emails and pictures distributed “with intent to place another person in reasonable fear for his or her safety” leading to “unwanted physical contact, injury, or harassment.” --->READ MORE HERE
