The controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations – an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror-funding scheme – is boasting of preventing an outspoken retired general from speaking at an upcoming prayer breakfast at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Retired Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, a strong critic of CAIR, has recommended a WND Books bestseller, “Muslim Mafia, that exposes the group’s role as a front group in the U.S. for the Muslim Brotherhood, the originator of most of the world’s major Islamic terrorist groups, including al-Qaida and Hamas.

Fox News reported that while West Point defended its invitation to Boykin, the retired general voluntarily withdrew amid pressure from CAIR and, who complained of his “Islamophobic” views.

CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement that his group welcomed the withdrawal and hoped that “the speaker who replaces him will offer cadets a spiritual message that promotes tolerance and mutual understanding.”

Boykin, former U.S. deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence, is a professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and author of “Never Surrender: A Soldier’s Journey to the Crossroads of Faith and Freedom.”

He has played a role in almost every major American military operation in recent decades – serving in Grenada, Somalia and Iraq

Before Boykin’s withdrawal, West Point spokeswoman Lt. Col. Sherri Reed explained in an interview with the Associated Press that the National Prayer Breakfast Service “will be pluralistic with Christians, Jewish, and Muslim cadets participating.”

“We are comfortable and confident that what retired Lt. Gen. Boykin will share about prayer, soldier care and selfless service, will be in keeping with the broad range of ideas normally considered by our cadets,” she said.

In 2010 speech, seen below, Boykin said the book exposing CAIR,”“Muslim Mafia”, will open your eyes. This book will shake you. What this book says is frightening.”

Boykin noted the book’s disclosure of internal documents obtained in a daring six-month undercover operation that show CAIR misleading and deceiving the FBI on behalf of terrorism suspects.

The book presents evidence that CAIR is more closely tied to al-Qaida than previously reported and that its sister fronts are funded by foreign Muslim Brotherhood sources.

CAIR leaders, Boykin has pointed out, share the Muslim Brotherhood’s ultimate goal of replacing the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law.

CAIR is suing a co-author of “Muslim Mafia” and his son, who conducted the undercover probe that came up with 12,000 pages of internal documents confirming CAIR’s role as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in the U.S. .

The CAIR attacks on critics are far from over. WND needs your help in supporting the defense of “Muslim Mafia” co-author P. David Gaubatz, as well as his investigator son Chris, against CAIR’s lawsuit. The book’s revelations have led to formal congressional demands for three different federal investigations of CAIR. In the meantime, however, someone has to defend these two courageous investigators who have, at great personal risk, revealed so much about this dangerous group. Although WND has procured the best First Amendment attorneys in the country for their defense, we can’t do it without your help. Please donate to WND’s Legal Defense Fund now.
