Detailed, documented and highly disturbing. Required reading for every democratic citizen.

Gaubatz the author's son penetrated the main Muslim advocacy body in the US and worked as an intern with high level access to files and emails.
The revelations in this book are astonishing and highly revealing.
It is well known that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator (meaning there was evidence but insufficient police and judicial resource to pursue prosecution) in a high level terror funding case (the Holy Land Foundation).
What this book reveals with specific and detailed documentation is that this is no abberration, but just a minor facet of CAIR's systematic policy of actually propagating and protecting jihadist theology and practice, of the kind espoused by Al Qaeeda and its affiliates. Whilst the organisation professes a moderate face, and is widely consulted by media and government, its actual activities amongst others have been:
To strongly discourage cooperation with law enforcement in identifying and tackling jihadists by the many Muslims it advises. This resulted in the community's active concealment of high profile, high value potential mass attack organisers, like Shukrijumah Gulshair for example.
To weaken and undermine the activities of the US authorities in battling jihadists. This included opposing police training programs that discretely and effectively helped identify jihadist strategies.
To support and encourage covert jihadist activities in the US and overt jihadists overseas, often employing subterfuge, often involving third party cover firms.
This book sounds a loud and clear alarm call to all Western governments about 'coopting' ostensibly moderate Muslim bodies - to check on their real activities, assess their value in exposing and ideologically opposing jihad, and remain vigilant to infiltration in the ranks of their intelligence and police forces.
