Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/24/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/24/2011I got home fairly late this evening, and it took me six hours to go through all the email and the skype. I had to fudge the time stamp on this post to push it back into Friday…

As many of you know by now, I spent the last two days at the ACT for America conference and legislative briefing in Washington D.C. I’ll have more to say tomorrow about that excellent event.

Two major items of welcome news came in while I was gone: Geert Wilders was acquitted on all counts, and CAIR lost its tax-exempt status. Yesterday was definitely a good news day.

To see the headlines and the articles, open the full news post.

Thanks to Fjordman, heroyalwhyness, JD, Nilk, and all the other tipsters who sent these in.

Commenters are advised to leave their comments at this post (rather than with the news articles) so that they are more easily accessible.

Caveat: Articles in the news feed are posted “as is”. Gates of Vienna cannot vouch for the authenticity or accuracy of the contents of any individual item posted here. We check each entry to make sure it is relatively interesting, not patently offensive, and at least superficially plausible. The link to the original is included with each item’s title. Further research and verification are left to the reader.

CAIR lost its tax-exempt status

This is HUGE good news. A tiny step towards Islam being unmasked as a political ideology and losing its religiously-based tax-exempt status as well.

Meanwhile, CAIR’s web site continues to solicit donations by touting them as tax deductible two weeks after the IRS issued the list and notifications were sent to all 275,000 purged groups. [emphasis added]

Still up to the same old tricks.
