CAIR Thug is being sued for ‘defamation’ by counter-Islamic terrorism expert Steve Emerson

Steve_EmersonSteven Emerson, the executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, is suing Cyrus McGoldrick, the director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations—New York (CAIR-NY), for defamation of character. McGoldrick has a history of making inflammatory statements, including supporting Hamas violence and the elimination of the state of Israel.

Radical Islam The lawsuit was sparked by a tweet posted by McGoldrick that states, “Steve Emerson is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest child pornography case in US history.”

Cyrus-with-beardThe tweet was mocking the often-mentioned fact that organization McGoldrick (photo left) serves, CAIR, is designated as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history. Emerson’s complaint states that it “accuses [him] of having committed a vile crime and constitutes libel per se.” Emerson’s complaint continued, “Although CAIR describes itself as a Muslim civil liberties advocacy organization, members of Congress, various law enforcement agencies and the FBI have described CAIR as participating in funneling millions of dollars to Hamas. An FBI agent has testified that CAIR is a front group for Hamas.”

McGoldrick is one of CAIR’s most radical voices. During the latest round of fighting between Israel and Hamas, he openly supported Hamas’s acts of terrorism. On November 15, he tweeted, “Palestine is a land occupied by foreign settlers. They have the right to resist, to defend themselves ‘by any means necessary.’


On November 16, he tweeted, “Sign of the times: bloodthirsty Zionists trend #HAMASbumperstickers, then erupt when I acknowledge Palestinian right to resist occupation.” On November 29, he retweeted a quote from Hamas leader Khaled Meshal: “Meshal: Anyone who is bothered by our rockets is welcome to provide us with accurate weapons to fight the enemy.”

McGoldrick supports Hamas’s goal of wiping Israel off the map.


On November 29, he tweeted, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. Insha’Allah.” That same day, he retweeted a post making it clear that he rejects a two-state solution. “What is urgent and overdue for Palestinians is not a ‘state’ but their rights; ending Zionist colonial rule, and return of refugees.”

He also stood by the side of the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi when his power grab sparked massive protests, suggesting that the opposition was a puppet of the West and Israel: “Can’t shake the feeling that all this anti-Morsi energy is a last stand by old pro-West/Mubarak/Israel crowd to keep power in judiciary. No?” he tweeted.


Like CAIR as a whole, McGoldrick casts law enforcement as oppressive, bigoted and inhumane. He wrote these two tweets on December 15: “Maybe I listened to too much Dead Prez growing up, but I can’t accept the liberal ‘ban all guns’ platform. If the cops have ’em, I want ’em.”

“Watching and filming the police is one of the few ways we have to defend ourselves. Start a #CopWatch team in your hood!”

McGoldrick has appeared on Iran’s state-controlled propaganda “news” network, Press TV, multiple times. It’s easy to see why the Iranian regime would book him as a guest. Rather than forcefully defend the U.S. and Western values, he blames anti-American terrorism on America’s foreign policy.

He said that the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was a result of “the straw that broke the camel’s back in terms of Muslims’ patience with American and Western intervention.”


McGoldrick said the proper U.S. reaction to the attack should be “to [critically think] about how much more weight will we put on the Muslim world? How many more attacks? How many more drone strikes? How many more coups … until we realize that we need to take a principled stand, and a just stand, to make sure that we respect human rights, sovereignty and dignity all over the world.”

He even subtlety suggested that the U.S. is not a free country. In an interview on Iranian Press TV about the riots sparked by the anti-Islam Innocence of Muslims tape, he said that the U.S. “allegedly” has freedom of speech.

All of this information is public. CAIR, who bills themselves as a “moderate” group certainly knows about Cyrus McGoldrick’s rhetoric, yet continues to have him as its leader in New York. Is this the message of a genuinely “moderate” group?

  1. Ummmm this morons name does not look like a typical Muzloid name. Is this retard a converted Libtard that hates America? I could be wrong but his surname looks possibly Jewish? Good luck with sueing Douggie & Co. im not holding my breath that this Emerson fellow will be successful especially if he has his case is infront of a Dhimmi judge… I hope im wrong. Please keep us informed of the BNI of the outcome.

  2. What else can you expect from this dirty anti-freedom, America-hater?
    I hope that patriotic freedom-fighter, America-defender Emerson gets MILLIONS of dollars from CAIR!

  3. I love it! I hope Mr. Emerson wins the lawsuit, and that bastard traitor to humanity loses EVERYTHING…including that ugly little beard!

  4. BNI, what does Insha Allah translate to in English? Also I’m curious as to his question on our freedom of speech. I also think there is a problem lately. Film makers of the truth about Islam are in jail and are not being protected by our constitution because assclown politicians are constantly kissing CAIR’s ass. Who knows, they may one day imprison me for hate crimes for my posts here.

      • Actually, as Allah is not God, but the old arabic moon god, it is Allah, the moon god, willing.

        Liberal twits translate Allah as God, but that is misleading and incorrect – as would be translating “Jove (Jupiter) willing” as God willing.

        • Correct. another thing to note is when muslims say inshallah, it never happens, because the muslim has no interest in fulfilling it, or his allah does not care, because allah does not exist. muhammad said allah is all knowing, all seeing, quick to justice, blah, blah blah…bloody lies

  5. Dual ethics.

    Islam says it’s OK to hurt kafirs in almost any way. Just don’t do it a Moslem. This is based on Koran 48.29 (Moslems) “are VIOLENT to the kafirs, but COMPASSIONATE between one another.”

    Violence can be applied to SLANDER and LIBEL in the mind of jihadist. A kafir’s reputation is not SACRED, but ‘mubaa’ (fair game). Mohammed told lies and told his followers to tell lies to make his DEATH CULT supreme.

    Mozzies are ALL in a war to annihilate freedom, though few will admit it. McGoldrick is being honest about it because he’s in a CULTIC RAGE.

  6. A little word for you, Cyrus McGoldrick, The vast majority of America’s lawful gun-owning public, such as myself will unhesitantly turn our weapons upon you and your kind before we ever will turn them upon the police. Glad to see you’re getting your due and being sued for slander, you effin’ traitor!

    • Amen, neighbor. And God Bless Steve Emerson! IT IS about DAMN TIME someone responded to the muslimes litigation jihad with some litigation CRUSADES; and if THAT doesn’t do it, and quite likely it won’t; then “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition” when the muslime sonsofbitches start invading OUR land and our neighborhoods!!

      • Amen to that! I will simply relish the opportunity to help them get those 72 virgins and boys beautiful, as scattered pearls. Those bearded, shit-stained, sick f**ks!

        • Hey come on, do you really think I’m going to allow all of you fine and upstanding fellows have all the fun. Yeah, let’s play fall down and never get up again, I’m all in. I can see you well over 1,000 meters while my BIG BURTHA has plenty of excuses to roar, they’ll never hear her bark.
