The science teacher whose alleged comments triggered CAIR’s request for a federal investigation also released a statement, KCPQ reports. In it, she explained that her comments were taken out of context. She says was discussing extremist terrorist groups such as Hamas and the Taliban and did not implicate Muslims as a single group.
Ironically enough, as The Daily Caller reported in May 2012, the House of Representatives encouraged the Department of Justice to follow in the footsteps of the FBI in cutting off all non-investigative ties to CAIR.
In January 2009, the FBI ended its relationship with CAIR and its affiliates across the country due to the conviction of five leaders of a Muslim charity involved in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist funding trial, in which CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator.
CAIR decline TheDC’s request for comment for this report.
