The controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) expressed gratitude following Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner's quiet proclamation declaring December 9, "CAIR-TEXAS, Houston Day."



In a Washington Post article dated November 17, 2014, the United Arab Emirates announced it would include CAIR on its list of designated terrorist groups.

In a 2007 trial, CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme by the largest Islamic charity in the United States to divert funds to Hamas.

However, CAIR has never been charged with any criminal activity.
