If there is something for which the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), can be relied on (other than supporting Islamism, we mean), it's their refusal to address any uncomfortable questions.
For instance, On January 9th, CAIR canceled reporter David Steinberg's online pre-registration to the organization's Community Congressional Reception for Representatives lhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Andrew Carson. Steinberg's screenshot of his suddenly-canceled ticket did not show CAIR's reason for revoking his purchase. But, as CAIR doubtless knew, his absence from the event meant he was not able to ask Rep. Omar a difficult question about her involvement in Somali politics. He tweeted his question instead; unsurprisingly, neither CAIR nor Rep. Omar answered him.
CAIR's willingness to ignore its allies' and staff's bigotry and terror-connections is a longstanding hallmark of the group's behavior. Over the last year, IW has documented dozens of instances in which CAIR has refused to condemn Islamist hatred—much of it emanating from within its own ranks. When IW highlights this habit, the guilty CAIR chapters and employees—rather than demonstrating commitment to their stated values—simply block us on Twitter.
For all CAIR's talk about "mutual understanding", this value seems rather one sided.
