Ilhan Omar Fundraises With CAIR In Southern California

House ethics violator and Islamofascist Rep. Ilhan Omar apparently spent the penultimate weekend before the DFL primary for CD 5 not in the district of the Minnesotans she claims to want to represent in Congress, but with her co-religionists and terrorist affiliated CAIR in a three city fundraising tour of Southern California.

A Facebook posting by Hussam Ayloush, Executive Director of CAIR, greater Los Angeles chapter dated August 5, show three photos of Omar in what looks like a nicely furnished private residence. He wrote:

“In Anheim (sic), with future Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. CAIR-CA PAC is hosting three events for the MN candidate in SoCal. Ilhan is a genuine advocate for justice and equality. Help elect a principled and intelligent candidate, and the first Muslim Somali American Hijabi woman! (Breaking a lot of barriers)” This is followed by a link, sponsored by Act Blue, to Omar’s Congressional online fundraising site.

In another Facebook post, dated the previous day, Ayloush wrote:

“Dozens of Muslims are running for office and many have a good chance to be elected. They are good candidates with a good record on rights and liberty. If you want to challenge Islamophobia, bigotry, and injustice in out country, then help support those candidates. Your contribution can make a big difference.

One such candidate is Ilhan Omar who is running for Congress in Minnesota for the seat vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison.

Ilhan is a solid rights activist and has a great chance to win. She is visiting Socal this week seeking our community’s support.

We will not let her down. Insha Allah.

Let me know if you are interested in attending any of the three events that the CAIR-CA PAC is hosting for her in Anaheim, Corona, and Covina.

Let’s send Trump and his Islamophobic friends a few nice gifts this election season. Imagine, a Muslim Governor, a few Muslim members of Congress, …This might cure his Islamophobia for good. :)”

CAIR has been classified as a terrorist organization by several countries but not yet the United States. Here, it passes itself off as just another civil rights organization when it is anything but. In 2014, the UAE Foreign Minister explained to FOX News’ Brett Baier why that country listed CAIR as a terrorist group.

Daniel Pipes has written comprehensively about its true nature in his piece “CAIR: Islamists Fooling The Establishment.” Minnesota media has yet to run a single story critical in any manner about this group. Ask yourself why.

Omar’s fundraising from CAIR in three Southern California cities is perfectly legal. There will be no coverage of this, however, from the media covering her race. Indeed, the Star Tribune just yesterday ran a puff piece (written by Associated Press reporter Youssef Rddad) on her that was devoid of actual news. It was, as I called it on Twitter, just another in-kind donation in her effort to succeed Keith Ellison.

Omar presents herself as just another liberal in a hijab. In fact, she’s in service to CAIR and it’s objectives. Minnesotans should be fully informed about her true nature before making the mistake of sending her to the United States Congress.
