The grievance mongers at CAIR have gone to court because their membership is down - and they're blaming the government of the United States:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) says it's suffering a decline in membership and fundraising and blames the Justice Department for listing it as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Texas case against a charity accused of ties to terrorists. Yes, I imagine most American Muslims might object to giving money to a group that supports terrorists organizations like The Holy Land Foundation. And don't you love how they put the word terrorist in quotes? As if such an animal only existed as figments in deluded minds at the Justice Department?
CAIR asked a U.S. District Court in Dallas to strike it from the list of more than 300 other Muslim groups named as unindicted co-conspirators in the government's case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.
The case is being tried in Dallas. "The public naming of CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator has impeded its ability to collect donations as possible donors either do not want to give to them because they think they are a 'terrorist' organization or are too scared to give to them because of the possible legal ramifications of donating money to a 'terrorist' organization," CAIR said in an amicus curiae brief filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
Perhaps more and more American Muslims will now be connecting the dots and shun this bunch of terrorist apologists until they reform the organization and drive the jihadist sympathizers into the street.
