IRS Plays Favorites With Terror-Tied, Democrat-backed CAIR


IBD: While the IRS was hassling any nonprofit group with the word “patriot” in its name, it was rubberstamping exemptions for “Islamic” groups, even organizations that violate disclosure laws.

Worse, it was even finding favor with nonprofits tied to terrorism — namely,  the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which not coincidentally is yoked to the Democratic Party.

Despite being blackballed by the FBI, which still suspects it’s fronting for  Hamas, and despite failing to file annual tax reports as required by federal  law, CAIR apparently has found friends in high places at the nation’s powerful  taxing authority.

Last year, in the middle of the national election season, the IRS quietly agreed to reinstate CAIR’s tax-exempt status, allowing it to resume raising  tax-free donations just in time for Ramadan, a key time for Muslim charitable giving.

According to the Religion News Service, the IRS in June 2012 sent CAIR’s  national office a letter stating the nonprofit had regained its exemption after  losing it the previous year. Several GOP lawmakers had asked for an audit of  CAIR after a book exposing its internal operations, “Muslim Mafia,” reported the  Islamist outfit had skipped filing IRS Form 990s for at least three years in a  row.

This was concerning since the same book revealed the bulk of CAIR’s funding  comes from foreign donors, including Islamic states hostile to the U.S.

Why the sudden IRS reversal? Did CAIR make good on its delinquencies? That’s still a mystery.

The Religion News article, which was carried by the Washington Post, quoted  CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper gloating about the reversal, yet curiously not  knowing “the details of what paperwork, including tax returns, had been filed” to resolve the issue.

By law, the nonprofit group must make copies of its tax returns available to  the public. Several news outlets, including and USA Today, have  asked for copies of CAIR’s missing 2007-10 returns, and CAIR has been unable to  produce them. Curiouser still, CAIR’s latest tax return is only a partial filing — covering  the period from Aug. 9, 2011, to Dec. 31, 2011.

You would think the IRS would make an outfit as sketchy as CAIR jump through hoop after hoop, especially in light of the third degree it gave Tea Party  groups.

But it turns out CAIR’s also found favor in the White House. Administration officials in 2012 met inside the White House with CAIR officials, according to  Secret Service visitors logs.

In the months leading up to the IRS decision, in fact, the Obama  administration held “hundreds” of closed-door meetings with CAIR — including many in the White House, according to an article in the Daily Caller posted in  early June 2012 — the same month the IRS reversed its decision. The timing certainly is suspicious.

The agency appears to have played favorites by letting Democrat-backed CAIR  raise tax-free donations while denying that privilege to Republican groups  which, unlike CAIR, posed no known national security threat.

Apparently, the IRS thinks it’s fine for taxpayers to subsidize a terrorist  front group that hates America — but not OK for them to help patriot groups.

And for some reason, I’m not shocked at all by CAIR’s favorable treatment.

What is taking place here is not even secret anymore! Why, oh why, aren’t more Americans speaking out against the islamization of this country? Personally, I am very angry and distraught over this!

When you have an avowed Muslim in the W/B house , expectations should be rather obvious / onerous . This is his job people , to eradicate everything the U.S. stands for .

“Hundreds” of closed-door meetings?…….I’d like to know the name of other organizations that get this much attention during the same time frame!

This is what needs to be investigated. We still have Obama holdovers in our government and we have to CLEAN HOUSE in order to make any headway and the Elite Republican politicians are not helping the American people. Vote out the RINOS.
