Deception Of The Day: CAIR's Cover-Up
Well, gee, Parvez, that's just great, but it's a bit off-point, isn't it? After all, Wash Times is reporting a more complete story:
Membership in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has declined more than 90 percent since the 2001 terrorist attacks, according to tax documents obtained by The Washington Times.This is hopeful news, indeed, but it raises a troubling question: Why haven't the 27,300 Muslims who have left CAIR not started a new organization, a Moderate Muslims of America, to actively counter the fiercely anti-American rhetoric of the organization they've left?
The number of reported members spiraled down from more than 29,000 in 2000 to fewer than 1,700 in 2006. As a result, the Muslim rights group's annual income from dues dropped from $732,765 in 2000, when yearly dues cost $25, to $58,750 last year, when the group charged $35.
The organization instead is relying on about two dozen donors a year to contribute the majority of the money for CAIR's budget, which reached nearly $3 million last year.
