And Judge Jeanine was suspended by Fox for questioning as to whether her hijab wearing was indicative of her Islamo-supremacist views (sharia) which run counter to the Constitution of the United States?
Protest crowd in L.A. highlights Ilhan Omar’s secretive fundraising for terror-linked groups
First of all, keep in mind that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
That’s one of the most important things we cannot ignore when reviewing Omar’s activities and statements. She may be a freshman member of the committee, but her seat on it gives her an outsize influence on the deliberation of U.S. foreign and security policy in the House. It also potentially gives her access to classified information about U.S. policy and intelligence that may not be readily available to all members.
Certainly it means she now comes to issues in the Middle East, including terrorism, terror-sponsoring countries, and the interests of U.S. allies and partners, from a privileged position.
So it continues to be of grave concern that Omar, who has a history of repeated anti-Semitic comments, is appearing at fundraisers for terror-linked groups – including two this weekend hosted by CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) in Los Angeles – from which the media are frequently excluded.
According to Adam Kredo of WFB, he had no success trying to obtain video of the February event or any previous Islamic Relief event in Tampa. Moreover, “multiple local news and television outlets in the Tampa, Fla., area, where Omar spoke to Islamic Relief … confirmed they were unable to gain access to the closed door event.”
The Washington Examiner’s David Swindle also highlights an appearance by Omar in December 2017 at a CAIR event in San Francisco, alongside “Imam Siraj Wahhaj of Masjid At-taqwa in Brooklyn and the Muslim Alliance of North America, who … is among the most prolific fundraisers and regular speakers on the Islamist lecture circuit and possesses arguably the longest and most explicit record of promotion of Islamic law, violent jihad, and calls to anti-gay violence.”
On Saturday 23 March, Omar appeared at a fundraiser for the CAIR chapter in Los Angeles, where yet another extremist with whom she has a long history is a fixture.
