CAIR is a highly prominent organization that is an outgrowth of the coupling of Saudi oil money with their Salafi / Wahhabi form of Islam. Benard Lewis, the preeminent academic expert in America on the Middle East, has likened the nature and threat of Salafi / Wahhabi Islam to the world as a coupling of the "KKK" with "all of the oil wealth in Texas." The Middle East Quarterly has a thorough expose of CAIR here. It is well worth a read, as these snippets indicate:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), headquartered in Washington, is perhaps the best-known and most controversial Muslim organization in North America. CAIR presents itself as an advocate for Muslims' civil rights and the spokesman for American Muslims
. . . .

Perhaps the most obvious problem with CAIR is the fact that at least five of its employees and board members have been arrested, convicted, deported, or otherwise linked to terrorism-related charges and activities.
. . . .

CAIR has a number of links to the terror organization Hamas, starting with the founder of its Texas chapter, Ghassan Elashi . . .
. . . .
A class-action lawsuit brought by the estate of John P. O'Neill, Sr. charges CAIR and its Canadian
branch of being, since their inception, "part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism" with a unique role in the terrorist network

both organizations have actively sought to hamper governmental anti-terrorism efforts by direct propaganda activities aimed at police, first-responders, and intelligence agencies through so-called sensitivity training. Their goal is to create as much self-doubt, hesitation, fear of name-calling, and litigation within police departments and intelligence agencies as possible so as to render such authorities ineffective in pursuing international and domestic terrorist entities.

It would be hard to improve on this characterization; under the guise of participating in counterterrorism, CAIR does its best to impede these efforts.
. . . .
CAIR has consistently shown itself to be on the wrong side of the war on terrorism, protecting, defending, and supporting both accused and even convicted radical Islamic terrorists.
. . . .
CAIR has a key role in the "Wahhabi lobby"—the network of organizations, usually supported by donations from Saudi Arabia, whose aim is to propagate the especially extreme version of Islam
practiced in Saudi Arabia.
. . . .
CAIR's personnel are normally tight-lipped about the organization's agenda but sometimes let their ambitions slip out. CAIR's long-serving chairman, Omar Ahmad, reportedly told a crowd
of California Muslims in July 1998, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran ... should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."

And there is much more. If you are not intimately familiar with the threat of this organization and the threat of Salafi / Wahhabi Islam, I strongly recommend that you read this article
