Nation Completely Unstunned that Terror Fundraising Front CAIR Receives Most $ From Overseas (WTF Update!)

I'll take this breathless moment of unshock to consider how I will continue living my life normally after learning nothing whatsoever about the SOB's over at CAIR:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conceals donations from overseas through a series of shell organizations, according to documents from court actions involving the Muslim advocacy group....

“Plentiful legal evidence, acquired in the course of a lawsuit—plus CAIR’s own official filing documents to the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) and IRS—make clear that CAIR has engaged in a thinly-disguised money laundering operation,” David Reaboi, vice president for strategic communications at the Center for Security Policy, told The Daily Caller.

“In addition to violating its 501(c)(3) regulations, CAIR’s undisclosed and hidden foreign donations amount to violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act as well,” Reaboi continued.

I was also completely unstunned to learn that the largest donor to CAIR was the government of the UAE. And I didn't come close to falling off my chair to learn that their second biggest donor was Saudi Arabia.

But I'm an Islamophobe like the rest of you so the fact that our suspicions about CAIR were completely founded, based on empirical evidence, and not related to prejudice against Muslims at all only reinforces the fact that I'm a bigot.

Update by Howie: WTF!

Council on American-Islamic Relations ... just changed their name to Washington Trust Foundation.


Or perhaps more to the point, WHY?

Well maybe Nadhira just didn't think of that, why do you bigots expect her to understand crazy of color American acronyms, she was only born here.

1 I have a great idea: Why don't we insist that any religion present in the community shall be funded solely by the people in that community.

If the Catholic church wants to enter a community, they'll need enough local supporters to build and staff a church of their own.

If a conservative Jewish group wants to build a synagogue, they'll need enough members to build and maintain it.

And if a community of Muslims wants a Mosque, they should damned well build it with their own money --WITH NO MONEY OR ASSISTANCE FROM OVERSEAS.

This is even handed and fair. It doesn't have to be taxed by government, but it doesn't deserve outside support either. Take that, CAIR.

2 I don't like that. What about mission work?

Instead, I would pull all R1 "temporary religious worker" visas from any person who comes from a country which did not reciprocate. In other words, no visas for Saudi "scholars" until Saudi Arabia begins granting visas for Christian pastors/missionaries.

3 Rusty, S.A. (and any other oil kingdom) would be glad to kill every missionary we send them.

4 That funding is why SA, Pakistan, and Afghanistan did not get nuked after 9-11.

Our enemies have bought our government.

5 Rusty:

Which is exactly what Putin did in Russia. The Saudis wanted to open a mosque in Moscow, so he asked the Eastern orthodox church to apply to the SA government for permission to open a cathedral in Medina.

They refused, of course. So Putin reciprocated, and refused permission for them to do the same.

7 Not far from where the Gorks live, a Muslim group wanted to build a massive mosque and school in the middle of what was once a corn field. They were talking high rise apartment buildings, loads of traffic from people who lived over an hour's drive away, and dorms and all that ilk. There were no roads, no septic, and no wells to support this much development.

Nobody could figure out how they came by all that money. Even local churches don't have that sort of money. It had to have come from overseas.

Such things creeped out a lot of people. The local farmers put up a fight and the permits were denied.

The next towns they aim for may not be so lucky. They were very well funded.

8 American synagogues and schools are not funded from outside the US, each community builds and maintains its own or does without .. this includes cemeteries too and there's no central office to apply to for funds. Try building a synagogue in any Muslim country, KSA and UAE esp. Hell, try even visiting one of those countries if you are Jewish and/or have "Israel" stamped on your passport. Ain't happening.

Personally I like the acronym for the former cair, WTF in my definition fits them just fine. Spit!

10 The best punishment possible will be these CAIR vermin being sent back to live in the sand cesspits they rose from and no longer possess the freedoms they hate and be subjected to the brutish rule of the islamists.
