Boycott Best Buy

Boycott Best Buy
By Ryan Mauro

On April 19, Marc J. Fink at Islamist Watch broke the story that Best Buy was a "Platinum Sponsor" for a fundraising banquet for the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). After Best Buy defended its donation, the Clarion Fund's RadicalIslam.org started a petition on April 24 for those committing to a boycott of the company until it rescinds its support for CAIR. Within one day, nearly 5,000 people had signed it. You can sign it by clicking here.

On January 23, the Facebook page of CAIR-MN announced that Best Buy would be a "Platinum Sponsor" of its fifth annual banquet. CAIR was labeled by the federal government as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a charity that was shut down for fundraising for the terrorist group Hamas, whose charter calls for the extermination of Jews.

CAIR grew out of the Islamic Association of Palestine, another group that was shut down for being a Hamas front. The Muslim Brotherhood's secret Palestine Committee in the U.S., set up to support Hamas, listed CAIR as a "working organizations" in one of its documents in 1994.

In a 2007 federal court filing, it is stated 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." District Judge Jorge Solis ruled that the government provided "ample evidence" tying CAIR to Hamas to justify its designation as an "unindicted co-conspirator."

This information can easily be found in a quick Internet search, but Best Buy wasn't simply negligent. After the story broke, Best Buy could have said it acted hastily and would change course. Instead, the company boasted that the donation proves its good will and tolerance.

Best Buy's customers and employees around the world represent a variety of faiths and denominations. We respect that diversity, and choose to engage with our customers, employees and communities in ways that reflect their traditions and maintain good relationships for Best Buy," a statement on Facebook reads.

Nearly 5,000 people signed the pledge within the first 24 hours to boycott Best Buy until it rescinds its support for CAIR. Add your name to the list by clicking here.
