(WASHINGTON, D.C., 1/24/17) - The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today revealed that the original draft of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) controversial “Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act” was written by a disgraced former FBI agent who has made a career out of bashing Muslims and Islam.
An Islamophobic website (WND, 11/23/2014) reported that John Guandolo, who claims that former CIA Director John Brennan is a “secret Muslim,” “helped draft the [original] anti-Brotherhood bill” for then Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN).
“The fact that Senator Cruz’s current legislation has its origins in the conspiracy theories of a notorious Islamophobe serves to prove that the bill is designed as the basis for an anti-Muslim witch hunt, not as a legitimate defense of national security,” said CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw.

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/3/16) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, is mobilizing voters through a national get-out-the -vote (GOTV) automated phone message this weekend recorded by Gold Star father and constitutional rights activist Khizr Khan.
This weekend’s nonpartisan robocall will urge Muslim American voters to go to the polls on Tuesday, November 8 and will be heard by more than 400,000 registered Muslim voters, their families and friends.
As a nonpartisan tax-exempt organization, CAIR encourages American Muslims to participate in national and state elections and the robocall does not support one candidate or party over another.
