CAIR’s Nihad Awad Hit With Summons At Annual Dinner
by Jerry Gordon, The Iconoclast blog, November 24, 2008Bravo to Dave Gaubatz of the Mapping Sharia project for pulling off this hat trick – serving CAIR executive director Nihad Awad with a summons at the 14th Annual CAIR dinner on Sunday evening. Four clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have filed a federal civil complaint alleging criminal fraud and racketeering against CAIR. The lawsuit also names CAIRís national leadership as individual defendants. Shades of a similar exploit, serving a subpoena to former Iranain President Khatami at a CAIR dinner in northern Virginia in September, 2006. Read about that exploit that we wrote about here. To view the service of the RICO subpoena on Awad at the CAIR dinner during the dessert course, look at this You Tube video, here. For more background on the Summons on behalf of former CAIR clients for racketeering and fraud read this report. We had posted a New English Review story, “Is CAIR’s 2010 Strategy Plan a Fiasco?” earlier this month that gives some background to this law suit and the CAIR 2010 strategy plan. The full report on this stunning exploit can be found at the Gates of Virginia blog, here. Note the picture of Awad at a rally with a prominent Hezbollah ‘yellow flag’.
