You may have missed this.

Unless you are an avid WND reader, you almost certainly have.

As a result of a daring undercover operation lasting six months, a Muslim Brotherhood front group – one already identified by the U.S. Justice Department as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator – has been revealed as an active front for jihadist activity.

This group, the Council on American Islamic Relations, still sports a 501(c)3 tax-exemption from the Internal Revenue Service. It still has broad access to the "mainstream" media. And it boasts about lobbying the Congress of the United States, though such activities are strictly limited by its tax-exempt status.

Despite the following well-documented findings of this undercover investigation in which thousands of incriminating internal documents were collected, not one major news agency besides WND has picked up the voluminous stories revealed in "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America":

CAIR is trying to spring from prison a former headquarters official who trained for jihad with the same Pakistani terrorist group that last year massacred more than 150 people in Mumbai, India.

CAIR officials are secretly coaching terrorism suspects and witnesses to withhold information from FBI investigators and have successfully obstructed at least one investigation in Maryland.

CAIR is donating thousands of dollars to the legal defense fund of a Muslim cop killer.

CAIR's visitor logs show the father of an al-Qaida terrorist visited CAIR director Nihad Awad several months before he was convicted of plotting to assassinate President Bush.

Curiously, the logs do not register any guests around Sept. 11, 2001 – in fact, the entire month of September is blank.

CAIR has cultivated Muslim moles inside a Washington-area law enforcement agency, including one who illegally accessed FBI records to tip off a terrorist under investigation and another with ties to Pakistani intelligence.

A long-time CAIR advisory board member and top fundraiser has preached violent insurrection, including calling on street gangs to lead an "Uzi" jihad in America's cities.

Another imam whom CAIR frequently books to speak at its events has exhorted Muslims to hijack U.S. military aircraft, including C-130s transporting the elite 82nd Airborne paratroopers out of Fort Bragg – which happens to be part of the district represented by North Carolina state Sen. Larry Shaw, who this year took over the reins of CAIR as its new chairman.

CAIR is putting books into neighborhood libraries across the country advising men to beat their wives – but only "lightly" – when they disobey them.

CAIR is lobbying the Justice Department and local law enforcement to exempt Muslim wife-beaters from laws against domestic violence or at least look the other way and let Muslim clerics intervene when Muslims are involved in spousal battery cases – not unlike the one involving the prominent Muslim TV executive who ended up beheading his wife after serial domestic abuse.

CAIR's library package includes a guide to Islam edited by a radical Muslim cleric who cheered the tragic space shuttle Columbia disaster as a "good omen" for Islam and is now behind bars for inciting anti-U.S. warfare.

CAIR is running an influence operation against members of key homeland security committees on Capitol Hill and planting Islamist spies in congressional offices.

During the 2004 presidential campaign, CAIR organized a "task force" of other radical Muslim Brotherhood fronts to hammer out a "Muslim platform" that initially included a draft proposal "supporting Islamic groups including Mr. bin Laden and his associates."

CAIR last year teamed up with a terror-tied Islamic investment bank to attack publicly traded American firms who refuse to comply with Shariah law by using shareholder resolutions, divestitures and boycotts against them.

CAIR executives regularly travel to the Middle East to raise cash, and bank transfers show Saudi princes have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to CAIR – even as it claims to receive no foreign support.

CAIR has purchased an alarming number of parcels of property in downtown Washington, D.C., while shielding them from a holding company. Now, let me ask you a question: Have you read any of this elsewhere? Have you heard any of this discussed on major talk-radio shows? Have you seen any of this reported on network, cable or local television?

Ask yourself why.

Where is even the so-called alternative media when it comes to exposing the Muslim Mafia? What can you do about this travesty? You can purchase and read "Muslim Mafia."

You can help spread the word about this publishing phenomenon.

You can tell your favorite news, radio and TV shows you expect to see the courageous authors of this book interviewed soon.
