Memo to Rep. Omar – CAIR is Hamas

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Since Ilhan Omar entered Congress, she has become notorious for her serial anti-Semitism. Her latest outrage, though, was a statement supporting the Council on American Islamic Relations, better known as CAIR.

It featured a blithely dismissive – and reprehensible – description of the 9/11 attacks as “somebody did something.” Another, unremarked affront was its  preposterous claim that CAIR was founded to address the restriction of Muslims’ civil rights in the wake of that murderous “something.”

Actually, the U.S. government has proven in federal court that CAIR was established by the designated terrorist organization known as Hamas in the early 1990s. And, as Zionist Organization of America president Morton Klein documented in congressional testimony this week, the problem of so-called “Islamophobia” doesn’t begin to compare to the threat posed by the anti-Semitism inherent in Islam’s Sharia-supremacism embraced by CAIR and its enabler, Ilhan Omar.
