Last month, the United States Justice Department convened a meeting at the US Attorney's Office in Miami with leaders of the South Florida Muslim community. These leaders comprised those who have ties to the terrorist group Hamas. The meeting, which took place January 21st, signaled a dangerous embrace of our government with those who would wish us and our overseas allies harm.
The Muslim participants of the event, titled 'Community Resilience Meeting,' included: Nezar Hamze, the Operations Director of the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, the Director of the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA); and Wilfredo Amr Ruiz, the Legal Counsel for both CAIR-Florida and AMANA. Zakkout and Ruiz are shown prominently on photos from the event found on the CAIR-Florida website and social media.
The government representatives included: US Attorney Wifredo Ferrer, FBI Special Agent George L. Piro, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) representative Ari C. Shapira, Acting Director of the Miami-Dade Police Department Juan Perez, Miami Police Chief Rodolfo "Rudy" Llanes, Florida State Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle, Senior Policy Advisor and Director of Community Engagement at the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Kareem Shora, Assistants to the US Attorney Benjamin Greenburg and Randy Hummel, Special Counsel to the US Attorney Sarah Schall and Norman Hemming, and FBI Special Agent for Community Outreach Jeff Green.
