Herman Cain Follows Newt Gingrich’s Lead in Agreeing to Investigate CAIR, Other Muslim Brotherhood Fronts in America if Elected
Newt Gingrich was the first GOP presidential candidate to say his Attorney General will probe the Hamas-linked, Muslim Brotherhood fronts called the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust. I reported on this for FrontPage Magazine on September 19. Gingrich has been, by far, the most outspoken candidate on the internal Islamist threat, including the Muslim Brotherhood, and demonstrates a well-educated view on the problem.
Now, Herman Cain has joined him. The United West, the activist group that first approached Gingrich on the issue, asked Cain the same thing. Cain responded affirmatively, as you can see on the organization’s website. He was also asked whether his State Department would designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and he said it would.
This is great news, but as I reported for Pajamas Media on July 30, he showed himself to be ill-informed about the Brotherhood’s networks in America by going to one of the top Brotherhood-affiliated mosques in Virginia as he tried to make amends for saying communities should have the right to ban mosques.
I am very happy that Cain has joined Gingrich on this issue, but his past error still concerns me. In my opinion, Gingrich remains the best candidate on the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood.
