Dallas Muslim leader, former CAIR board member, deported for ties to jihad terror groups

Yet another CAIR leader linked to jihad terror. Will Newsweek, and the mainstream media in general, revise its assessment of this band of thugs? Don’t hold your breath. “Dallas Islamic Leader Deported: Government links him to terror groups,” by Scott Gordon for NBCDFW.com, February 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):

An immigration judge in Dallas on Friday ordered an outspoken Islamic leader deported after the U.S. government alleged he had ties to terrorist groups in the Middle East.Nabil Sadoun, a Dallas resident and former board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, was deported to his native Jordan after he failed to appear at his immigration hearing. He entered the U.S. in August 1993.

Sadoun’s attorney, Kimberly Kinser, said he was already in Jordan and was unable to return to Texas because the government had taken his permanent resident card, or green card.

She denied he was tied to any terrorist groups….

In court, the judge made vague references to the government’s voluminous motion to deport him, including alleged involvement with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. The judge concluded Sadoun lied on government forms when he denied he was a member.

The judge also indicated there was evidence Sadoun contributed to the Richardson-based Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which was the largest Islamic charity in the United States. Prosecutors convicted the group of funneling money to terrorist groups and several of its leaders were sent to prison. In the case, CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator….

Ibrahim Hooper, a CAIR spokesman, said Sadoun left the organization several months ago.

Asked the reason for his departure, Hooper said, “Board members come on, (and) they leave.”…

A non-answer from that skillful beekeeper of media bees, Honest Ibe Hooper.
