There’s no polite way of putting this so I’ll just say it bluntly. Ilhan Omar, the Democrat representing Minnesota’s Fifth District, is a liar. In this video, she said that “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

That’s an easily discredited statement:

CAIR was co-founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber, all of whom had close ties to the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was established by senior Hamas operative Mousa Abu Marzook and functioned as Hamas’ public relations and recruitment arm in the United States. Awad and Ahmad previously had served, respectively, as IAP’s Public Relations Director and President. Thus it can be said that CAIR was an outgrowth of IAP.

By the time 9/11 happened, CAIR had already defended Osama bin Laden. They were offended by a billboard in Los Angeles calling OBL a terrorist.

I’m sick and tired of Rep. Omar (and other Democrats) lying to protect their special interest allies. Saying that CAIR was founded after 9/11 is ridiculous. It took less than a minute to find the proof discrediting Rep. Omar’s statement.
