We, the undersigned, pledge to refrain from purchasing products from Best Buy until the company rescinds its financial support for the CAIR Minnesota (CAIR-MN) organization, as exposed in the Islamist-Watch.org article, “Best Buy: Computers, TVs and Hamas.”The Master of Ceremonies at the banquet sponsored by Best Buy was Hussein Khatib, a former official with the Holy Land Foundation who is also designated as an “unindicted co-conspirator.” His name appears on a list of those who “are and/or were a part of the HAMAS’ social infrastructure in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Unlike local CAIR branches, CAIR's national infrastructure has lost its federal tax-exempt status. CAIR's national umbrella organization was also labeled by the federal government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a “charity” shut down for serving as a fundraising arm for the Hamas terrorist group. A federal court filing in 2007 states that, “From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists” and “the conspirators agreed to use deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists.”
On July 1, 2009, District Judge Jorge Solis ruled that the government provided “ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR…and with Hamas,” justifying the label.
We, the undersigned, demand that Best Buy end its support for CAIR-MN (CAIR Minnesota) and commit to not support CAIR (NATIONAL) or any of its chapters.
