Who CAIRs?

Well, itís already wending its way round Al Goreís World-Wide Web. The Washington Times has recently reported that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has experienced an incredible decline of members.

As Audrey Hudson reports:

According to tax documents obtained by The Times, the number of reported [CAIR] members spiraled down from more than 29,000 in 2000 to less [sic] than 1,700 in 2006, a loss of membership that caused the Muslim rights groupís annual income from dues to drop from $732,765 in 2000, when yearly dues cost $25, to $58,750 last year, when the group charged $35.

Thus does The Washington Times, a paper with circulation figures even lower than the number of card-carrying CAIR members, attempt to hammer in the last nail in the coffin for the odious terror-supporters at the Council on American-Islamic Relations. And, letís be honest, the folks at Rev. Moonís paper do a pretty good job on CAIRówhich, given its paltry membership, has no claim to being deemed the quasi-official voice of American Muslims.

Still, we, the crack young staff of ďThe Hatemongerís Quarterly,Ē have the sneaking suspicion that the lazy hacks who make up the American journalistic establishment will continue to call up CAIR whenever it wants a pseudo-official Muslim-American response to any given issue. CAIR could have three membersówhich, come to think of it, is distinctly possible in the year 2014óand our mindless reporters will still run to them for responses.

Further, we assert that CAIRís obvious low standing in the American Muslim community wonít harm the disgracefully anti-Semitic organizationís goals one jot. After all, CAIR is an Islamist front group with known links to terrorist organizations. It pulls in all sorts of dirty money from Saudi Arabia and other financiers of global jihad.

Last we checked, those terror-loving OPECers had more than a bit of cash to spare. Thus CAIR doesnít exactly require a bake sale to remain in the black.

Okay, okayóso the odious CAIR, like Gloria Gaynor, will survive. Despite its terror ties and dubious actions, it will remain on CNNís Rolodex, just as do Al Sharpton and other disgraced race-baiters. Yet we canít help but see some positives from the Timesí recent revelation.

We mean, come on: Only 1,700 American Muslims are members of CAIR! Isnít that slightly inspiring? Especially after the brouhaha regarding that recent Pew poll, which demonstrated that nine out of every eight American Muslims wholeheartedly support suicide bombing?

We earnestly wish that this report would signal the death knell for the frightening radicals who run CAIR. But we wonít hold our collective breath.
