Ghazala Salam is a local leader in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). She also helps run annual events for Islamic Relief. Both CAIR and Islamic Relief have serious ties to global terrorist organizations. The two have been named terrorist groups themselves. Knowing this, it is inconceivable that Salam has been appointed to different advisory boards within the Broward County government and was named to a leadership position in the local League of Women Voters (LWV). It is time for Broward to purge itself of this terror-tied individual.
Ghazala Salam, who was born in India in 1965, is the Community and Government Relations Director for the Florida chapter of CAIR. She has served in this capacity since February 2011.
CAIR was established in June 1994 as part of the American Palestine Committee, a terrorist umbrella group headed by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook, who currently resides in Egypt as Hamas' number two leader. In 2007 and 2008, CAIR was named by the US Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. Since its founding, a number of CAIR representatives have served jail time and/or have been deported from the United States for terrorist-related crimes. In November 2014, CAIR itself was labeled a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.
