Far left Rep. Ilhan Omar is reportedly holding fundraisers with groups tied to Islamic terror. These events have been closed to the press and yet the media is giving her a pass on this. It’s unreal.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Omar Holding Secret Fundraisers With Islamic Groups Tied to Terror
Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view.
The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public.
Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.
This seems like the sort of thing that would be alarming to most Americans if they knew about it.

She’s not naive: Ilhan Omar is on the road, raising money for extreme Islamist groups
It won’t be “all about the Benjamins baby” for protesters outside the Woodland Hills Hilton tomorrow. That’s where the Council on American Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles chapter will be holding its fourth annual “Valley banquet” fundraiser hosting controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
Omar has generated attention and condemnation with her series of anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks. But activists in L.A. are more concerned by her decision to raise money for various Islamist groups, some of which have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and others labeled designated as terrorist-linked by some foreign governments…
Congresswoman Omar is a frequent guest at fundraisers like this one, and accustomed to speaking alongside speakers like Ayloush and other CAIR-LA regular speakers. This includes Imam Siraj Wahhaj of Masjid At-taqwa in Brooklyn and the Muslim Alliance of North America, who appeared in 2016 alongside Ayloush. Wahhaj 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.
This is not the public persona she projects or the one the media holds up.
This woman needs to be voted out of office.
