Abubakar Osman, or Sadiqq Abu Osman, posted on Facebook back in 2008: “i wish hitler was alive to fuck up the jewish ppl and add more jewish causalities to the 6 million he killed in the holocaust…”
Abdul Basit, who is a member of the Board of Directors for CAIR Minnesota, has also expressed antisemitic attitudes. In a 2016 Facebook post, he suggested that those who “plot” against Bernie Sanders do so because they are Jewish.
Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has worked closely with CAIR in the past, coming under fire recently for calling 9/11 “something some people did” at a recent event hosted by CAIR in California.
CAIR-MN is an institution whose primary core principles are to “support free enterprise, freedom of religion and freedom of expression” and “advocate [for] dialogue between faith communities both in America and worldwide.” However, the anti-semitic attitudes of their employees do not seem to share these same core principles.
