Ilhan Omar Headlines Hamas-Linked Terrorist Group’s Fundraiser

Omar is headlining fundraisers hosted by terrorist organization CAIR, which boasts ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is set to headline an Irvine, California fundraiser on Sunday hosted by the controversial terrorist group known as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon.

CAIR boasts close ties to Islamist militant movements in the Middle East such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and is widely seen as a front group for Brotherhood operations in the United States. Since 2014, CAIR has been designated by the United Arab Emirates as an international terrorist organization.

Due to evidence of the organizing assisting terrorist activity, the Louisiana state government has officially banned law enforcement and government agencies in the state from cooperating with the group.

CAIR has also refused to condemn terror acts committed by Hezbollah and other anti-Israel Islamist terrorists.

The event follows a similar fundraising event hosted by Islamic Relief, which is banned in Israel and Bangladesh as a terror outfit, and has faced congressional investigations for its aid to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Last year, Al-Arabiya reported on Omar’s ties to the ‘Muslim Sisters’, a loose group of female Brotherhood sympathizers linked to Islamic activist Linda Sarsour who are seeking the overthrow of President Trump.

Since her election, she has frequently criticized Israel in a fashion that has been widely regarded as anti-Semitic. Sarah Stern of the Endowment for Middle East Truth is one of the pro-Israel figures strongly condemning Omar’s moves to align herself with radical elements.

“I just wonder what is Rep. Omar saying to a group of Islamic supporters that she feels is so secretive that she cannot say it to the American people, as a whole?” Stern told the Free Beacon. “What is so secretive that it has to be off the record and closed to reporters? Will she say the same things in public to her Jewish voters in Minnesota that she says to her Islamic friends? What does this tell us about her openness, her honesty and her integrity?”

  1. Ilhan Omar is proof that new legislation is needed that from now on anyone who wants to run for any political office at any level must be a American citizen who was born in the United States, this is just common sense and better national security to protect the country from radicals trying to get in the country, run for office with goals of using our own laws against us. People should write the president, contact their members of congress and Senate to demand this new law be made for the good of the country. Better education is also needed http://www.ActForAmerica.org http://www.NumbersUSA.com
