|The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a notorious neo-Jihadi group in the United States that masquerades as a civil rights organization.
In truth, the group cares very little about true civil rights or religious freedom outside the practice of Islam. CAIR famously complains about petty slights to Muslim-Americans while ignoring far more serious human rights violations by Muslims against minorities in the Islamic world.
CAIR’s true interest is the advancement of Islam, which its leaders feel is best pursued by pulling Muslim-Americans into a disaffected bloc. The organization’s strategy of fueling paranoia and resentment does build political power, but at the expense of the very assimilation which has helped Muslim individuals become successful in the United States. In other words, when CAIR wins, everyone loses.
10 Facts About CAIR:CAIR was created by the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic supremacist organization that pioneered 20th century Islamic terrorism and sanctions violence against civilians.

CAIR has discouraged Muslim-Americans from cooperating with law enforcement and has spent more time and money advocating on behalf of convicted terrorists than for their victims.
