CAIR: Senate Engaged in 'McCarthyite Witch Hunt' Says Muslims; 24 U.S. Islamic Groups Targeted for IRS Tax, Donor Records

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today accused a Senate committee of engaging in a "McCarthyite witch hunt" by seeking the IRS tax and donor records of 24 American Muslim charitable, youth and civic organizations. The Washington Post reports that the request "marks a rare and unusually broad use of the Finance Committee's (http://www.finance.senate.gov/) power to obtain private financial records held by the government."

SEE: "MUSLIM GROUPS' IRS FILES SOUGHT"

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A14205-2004Jan13.html

In a statement, the Washington-based civil rights and advocacy group said:

"The Senate Finance Committee's investigative net has been cast so wide that it seems to target all American Muslims as terrorism suspects. Its indiscriminate scope smacks of a McCarthyite witch hunt and creates the impression that the presumption of innocence no longer applies to Muslims.

"As in the past, the real test of America's commitment to equality before the law comes at times of national insecurity. We will pass that test if we reject demands, from any source, to single out Americans based on their race, religion or national origin."

CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has 25 regional offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada.

"Do they know the Joe McCarthy was 100% correct?"

Ann Coulter's book "treason" is very compelling. In fact, I wonder if the witch hunters were right as well.

Forgot to post: the "presumption of innocence" is hard to apply when your holy documents, the Quran and Hadith, specify a lack of innocence according to civilized standards, not to mention the almost not existant condemnation displayed by the Muslim world re: 9/11.

Totally agree with you.

I don't think CAIR should be seeking or exercising civil libiberties that Allah forbids.

Squealing like a stuck pig, you might say.

What you minions of allah got to hide there, anyway?

Well, finally, even the Senate is stirred to move.

Better late than never.

CAIR is a fifth column organization.

Their goal is the islamification of the western world.

Ah. The Islamofascists learn quite well from liberals, it seems.

Strange, ain't it?
