Approximately one month ago the FBI had sent out a memo stated that they had cut off all ties with the terrorist supporting Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Apparently none of that matters to North Carolina Muslim Senator Larry Shaw. Shaw has been elected to be the chairman of CAIR. CAIR is obviously trying to redo their image after recently being hit with racketeering charges, but Mr.Shaw is clearly putting his religion above the best interests of America.

Islamic group taps Fayetteville senator
RALEIGH — Sen. Larry Shaw of Fayetteville has been elected chairman of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Shaw, a Democrat, has served on the organization’s board for three years.
He described the council, known as CAIR, as a civil rights organization. Shaw said he looks forward to partnering with President Obama’s administration to protect civil liberties and help improve America’s international image.
“We just want to work with them to foster better understanding and mutual accommodating,” Shaw said.
The council is active on other issues, he said, such as sensitivity training with law enforcement and the efforts to bring peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
According to the news release, the nonprofit council is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties group, with 35 offices and chapters in the United States and Canada. It says it seeks to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
