CAIR Official Busted In Child Sex Sting

Ahmad Saleem, a regional director for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), has been arrested for trying to pick up a 12-year-old girl.

The Orlando-based “community activist” — some community activist he is — was picked up as part of a larger child-sex sting operation in which police arrested 101 people.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the car he was driving when he went to pick up the supposed 12-year-old girl had a specialty license plate that read “Invest in Children.”

Saleem is horrifyingly the founder of Saleem Academy, a group he created to boost the self-esteem of Muslim youth.


There is no confusion what Saleem’s intentions were with the police detective who posed as a 12-year-old girl. The Orlando Sentinel reports that he said he wanted to have sex with her and drove to meet her. At which point police were waiting to nab him.

That he confused an adult for a 12-year-old girl is pretty astounding.

CAIR, which had the nerve to once call The Daily Caller a hateful name and banned a reporter from a press conference, hardly claims this sick dude as anything important to its operation. They said he worked there briefly before “abandoning his post.”

Outside the 2012 presser, CAIR’s communications director cracked, “The Daily Caller is not a news outlet, it is a hate group. You cannot come in.”

Hey, at least we don’t have any child molesters.
