CAIR Membership Dropped As Suicide Bombings Increased – Coincidence?

Membership in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has declined more than 90 percent since 9/11, reports the Washiington Times. Annual income from dues dropped from $732,765 in 2000 when dues were $25. to $58,750 last year, when they charged $35.

The organization instead is relying on about two dozen individual donors a year to contribute the bulk of the money for CAIR's pork-free $3 mil. budget

Asked about the decline, Parvez Ahmed, CAIR board chairman, pointed to the number of individual donors to the organization:

"We are proud that our grass-roots support in the American Muslim community has allowed CAIR to grow from having eight chapters and offices in 2001 to having 33 today," Mr. Ahmed said.

"Sure the numbers have declined, but the quality is way up, and we firmly believe every member will have his own chapter by 2010," he added.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. I heard this on Mark Levine's radio show tonight. I thought it was very interesting that they are putting a positive spin on their decline. Hopefully, it will continue to decline and soon there will be none. Mark mentioned there was an indictment handed down, but I missed the last part of his message. He said this group is very dangerous.

  2. Considering that their money goes to Hamas, it comes as no surprise that Muslims would wish to avoid it.
