CAIR Flip-Flop Watch

• Views: 604

In the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, CAIR is trying to be removed from the list of unindicted co-conspirators by arguing that the “stigma” has caused their membership to decline—and to support their case they cite the very same Washington Times article they originally denounced as “biased” and “false.”

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) says it is suffering from a decline in membership and fundraising and blames the Justice Department for listing it as an unindicted co-conspirator in a case involving a charity accused of terrorist ties.

CAIR is asking a federal judge to strike it as one of the more than 300 Muslim groups listed as unindicted co-conspirators in the government’s case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which is currently on trial 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.

The brief cites reporting by The Washington Times about the organization’s declining membership — coverage that CAIR had previously denounced as a ”hit piece.“
