Lawsuit: Officials secretly worked with CAIR after claiming collaboration stopped

A federal judge has ordered school officials in San Diego to provide information about whether they are continuing to collude with the Islamic advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations in a lawsuit by parents who say the district claimed to have dropped the collaboration.

The case was brought by several families and two parents’ groups against the San Diego Unified School District over its partnership with CAIR, a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to FBI evidence presented in a Hamas-funding case in which CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator.

The district worked with the organization to battle bullying and “Islamophobia.”

As WND reported, the families filed suit in May 2017 against the campaign, which was launched the previous month featuring curriculum and materials published by CAIR.

Lawyers with the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund later revised their complaint to focus on CAIR’s radical Islamic origin. The complaint asserted the school district’s partnership with CAIR violated the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment and California law. WND later reported a federal judge objected to a reference to CAIR’s terrorist ties in the complaint, saying it was “impertinent, immaterial and scandalous,” designed only to “inflame the public.”

The program, the families argued, singled out Muslim students for special accommodations and called for changes to school curricula to make it more favorable to Islam. It also allowed CAIR officials into classrooms to teach students about Islam and “how to be allies” to Muslim students.

The district purchased thousands of dollars of CAIR’s recommended teaching materials, which were then distributed to the schools.
