Anti-Israel, anti-American, anti-war organization
"The U.S. has no legal justification for launching an unprovoked war on Iraq."
Shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Detroit-based organization Focus on American and Arab Interests and Relations (FAAIR) was founded by two Iraqi expatriates, Mohammed Alomari and Muthana al-Hanooti, "to promote fair policies and a better understanding of the issues pertaining to the Arab World." This organization has joined forces with a handful of anti-war groups to take the U.S. to task for its policies in Iraq.
Before co-founding FAAIR and becoming a spokesman for Iraqi nationals in the U.S., Alomari wrote a book titled The Secrecy of Evil: The Qabala and Its Followers, which denounced Jews and their alleged scheme to create a New World Order. Today he charges that the U.S. and Israel "organized" the 9/11 attacks.
Prior to the 2003 Iraq War, FAAIR's website featured an essay by Alomari entitled "Twelve Years of Siege on Iraq," which depicted the U.S. -- because of its role in leading the UN economic sanctions against Iraq -- as the cause of that nation's social and economic troubles. (Alomari expanded upon this theme in his book The Blockade and Destruction of Iraq: Crimes Against Humanity.) He argued that America's justifications for going to war against the "besieged nation" of Iraq were very weak. "Unfortunately," he wrote, "… none of these arguments [justifications] stand on any basis of fact or legality. Iraq never had any ties or links whatsoever with the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks or with Al-Qaeda group. In fact, Iraq actually offered to help the U.S. in tracking down the culprits behind the 9-11 terrorist attacks." Charging that the United States deceptively used "old regurgitated and unsubstantiated rhetoric claiming that Iraq somehow poses a threat to the world," FAAIR has called the Iraq War not only illegal but also "a crime against humanity." The organization blames America's invasion of Iraq on anti-Arab "extremists" and “pro-Israeli fanatics” in the Bush administration.
FAAIR's lobbying efforts are directed mainly by Muthana al-Hanooti, the former Public Relations Director for the Islamic Relief Association (IRA), a militant Islamic group which, according to terrorism expert Steven Emerson, is a money-laundering front operation for Hamas and al-Qaeda.
