BROWARD AND DAVIE IGNORE CALLS FOR SIGN’S REMOVAL, EVEN AFTER CAIR WAS NAMED AS A PARTY TO THE FINANCING OF HAMAS
WEBSITE: AMERICANS AGAINST HATE
The event will take place at the location of the sign, at the southwest corner of College Avenue and Nova Drive in Davie, Florida.
Beginning in May 2007 and ending November 2008, CAIR was named by the United States Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. CAIR was created in 1994 as being part of an organization whose mission was to raise funds for Hamas from American shores.
AAH has been calling for the sign to be removed for the past two months. Both Broward and Davie have refused to claim responsibility for the sign. The sign contains both the Broward County and the Town of Davie logos on it.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated: “CAIR is a front for Hamas, and the street sign given to CAIR represents the blood of so many innocents, including Americans, who perished at the hands of the terrorist group. Every day the sign remains is another day that Broward and Davie have acted in support of the enemy. Someone needs to take responsibility. The sign must come down.”
Kaufman will be speaking at the demonstration.
When: Friday, February 12th, 12:00 Noon
Where: In Davie, at the Southwest corner of College Ave. and Nova Dr. (east of University Dr., west of Davie Rd.)
Directions: From I-595, south on University Dr., east on Nova Dr., end at College Ave.
All are welcome to join. Bring American flags. ALL SIGNAGE WILL BE PROVIDED BY AMERICANS AGAINST HATE.
