The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), claims to be ďAmericaís largest Islamic civil liberties group.Ē But thatís a myth. As we reported here on BigGovernment.com last fall, only 1% of CAIRís latest reported revenues actually came from Muslim American members.


Meanwhile foreign donors have given CAIR over $6,000,000 million in cash and loans, and over $50,000,000 in pledges. Thatís 1% from American members; tens of millions from Saudi Arabia, Iran, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. Shouldnít there be a law to let the American public know the truth about CAIR and their foreign donors? Of course, and there is one. CAIR just doesnít follow it.

The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), enacted just before World War Two, still requires foreign agents spreading propaganda to register so Americans can know what they are up to. Back then the problem was foreign agents working for the Nazis. Today the problem is foreign agents like CAIR, defending Jihadists in the media and pushing Muslim Brotherhood values in America.

The Center for Security Policy recently unveiled a unique new tool to expose CAIR as a foreign agent of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and several of its member states. The CAIR Observatory website (http://www.cairobservatory.org) presents comprehensive open-source evidence and analysis alleging that CAIR has acted as a foreign agent on behalf of Iran, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.
