Well, I went to CAIR’s webpage after receiving an email from them stating that they wanted everyone to donate to the Muslim cause in America, and that the donation would qualify under their mandatory zakat, obligatory “charity” that, according to the incriminating Holy Land Foundation trials, would pretty much be used to fund Hamas. In 2011, because CAIR refused to file the required documents to support their “non-profit” status from 2007 through 2010 (because they were more than likely afraid of being caught again for financing one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s [a sister group to CAIR] terrorist groups, Hamas.)
We get this info from Politico:
June 23, 2011
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has lost its nonprofit status, according to the Internal Revenue Service.
The civil rights group, long accused of ties to radical Islam, is on a list of 275,000 organizations who have not filed the requisite paperwork with the IRS to maintain nonprofit status. Tax law requires annual disclosure of assets, expenditures and salaries for 501(c) nonprofits. Both CAIR and sister organization CAIR Foundation have lost their status.
A CAIR attorney initially told POLITICO that its appearance on the IRS list referred to a defunct arm of the nonprofit, and that CAIR and CAIR foundation were unaffected — a claim that a review of the IRS documents did not support. CAIR then told POLITICO the IRS was to blame, citing a number of other errors that have occurred on the IRS list. However, CAIR could not produce their IRS disclosure forms for 2007 through 2010 — which are required to be open for public inspection.
“We are looking into all of these issues and are working with the IRS to clear things up,” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told POLITICO. “CAIR was clearly not targeted or singled in any way by the IRS.”
CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a landmark terrorism financing trial in Texas. Some Islamic charities facing federal investigations have been advised by attorneys not to file IRS paperwork for legal reasons, but there is no evidence that CAIR is currently the target of a federal probe.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in a 2007 terrorist funding trial, lost its non-profit status at the beginning of the month. The group, however, continued to promote itself as a 501(c)(3) status, until late Tuesday afternoon.
According to Politico, CAIR’s failure to disclose its finances to the Internal Revenue Service, required by law in order to remain tax-exempt, resulted in both CAIR and the CAIR Foundation losing their non-profit statuses.
Nevertheless, CAIR’s website continued to tout the organization as a 501(c)(3).
“CAIR is a not-for-profit organization recognized as tax-exempt under U.S. Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3),” the group said on its site, including beneath its fundraising page.
Further, the organization’s “How CAIR Works” section continues to explain how it is a not-for-profit group.
