    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR's executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR's executive director Nihad Awad shares the "formula" he believes will secure Islamists greater political power: "A strong CAIR equals a strong community. A strong community will produce a strong and confident and successful Muslim ... "So I'm telling you tonight we are going to work in the next years, inshallah (God willing], to elect at least 30 Muslims in the Congress. This...

    Ghazala Hashmi (D) unseated Virginia state Sen. Glen Sturtevant (R) on Tuesday to become the first Muslim woman elected to the state senate, according to The Associated Press. Hashmi, a former community college professor, will represent the state’s 10th Senate District, which includes Powhatan County and parts of Chesterfield County and Richmond. She emigrated to the U.S. from India as a child and 2019 marked her first campaign for public office. Hashmi’s campaign hit heavily on issues such as gun violence and education, and she was a supporter of Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D) universal pre-kindergarten proposals. During the campaign, she...

    "I would encourage my colleagues to visit, meet with the people we were going to meet with, see the things we were going to see, hear the stories we were going to hear," Omar said at a news conference. "We cannot let Trump and Netanyahu succeed in hiding the cruel reality of the occupation from us." "There is no way that we are ever, ever going to allow people to tear us down, to see us cry out of pain, to ever make us feel like our (citizenship) certificate is less than theirs," Omar said. "So we are going to...

    Former Miss Iraq Sarah Idan provoked the criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday after news surfaced that she distanced herself from the freshman Democrat from Minnesota in an interview. "Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim -- does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East," Idan told "The Sara Carter Show." Those comments prompted Omar to stress that she wasn't the beauty queen's representative since she didn't live in her congressional district. "Hey, I might be wrong but I don’t think you are a #MN05 resident and like that makes be not your representative," Omar...

    Two decades ago, Omar M. Ahmad, then the chairman of the terror-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, was reported to have told a gathering of Muslims that their purpose for being in America was to help make the Quran the highest authority in the nation. Omar and other CAIR leaders have denied he made the statement, but WND found the reporter and her editors stood by the story, refuting CAIR’s claim that they had retracted it.

    National advocacy groups on Thursday delivered to Congress multiple petitions of what they said contained 10 million signatures from people who support the impeachment of President Donald Trump. They delivered the signatures to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who has introduced a bill that would direct the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether Trump committed impeachable offenses — an issues that has been heating up among congressional Democrats and presidential contenders. MoveOn spearheaded the effort that included groups such as Need to Impeach, CREDO and the organizers behind the annual Women's March. "This is incredible because this is how movements start,"...

    Republicans were harsh to condemn freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who tweeted Sunday night about this weekend’s violence in Israel, the worst in a string of flare-ups since a 2014 war. “How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?” Omar tweeted. “The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.” Twenty-five Palestinians, including at least 10 militants, and four Israeli civilians were killed before a ceasefire was reached Monday. They were...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar branded herself as President Trump’s “biggest nemesis” because she’s a “nightmare” for the White House that wants to use her “identity to marginalize our communities.” The Minnesota Democrat, who was elected to Congress just five months ago and has been facing persistent controversy, made the remarks during an interview amid her sparring with the Trump administration. “This is a president who has come to power vilifying and demonizing immigrants and refugees. He proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country. It’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me,” Omar wrote in...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar appeared to take the side of Hamas and Islamic Jihad last night after terrorists fired hundreds of rockets at civilian targets in Israel by Hamas this weekend. “How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends? The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace,” the Minnesota Democrat said in a tweet Sunday night

    Fresh from letting us know about her Jew-hatred, her 9/11 flippancy, her support leniency for terrorists and her love for 9/11's unindicted co-conspirators, her willingness to stick up for the brutal Maduro dictatorship in Venezuela, and other outrages, Rep. Ilhan Omar also would have us know about the little cold spot she holds for U.S. troops, the ones from the 1992 Black Hawk Down incident, the very U.S. Marines who tried to deliver aid to her starving clan in Somalia. According to the New York Post: The controversial Minnesota lawmaker claimed that “thousands” died in the Battle of Mogadishu —though...

    Time for all Christians to convert to Islam. Anything else would “offend." Ibrahim Hooper, call your office: there was an outbreak of “Islamophobia” Monday at the Pennsylvania State Assembly. Luckily, Muslim state Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell was there to blow the whistle on this bigotry and hatred. The “Islamophobia,” according to journalist Todd Starnes, was committed by another state Representative, Stephanie Borowicz, who prayed this to open a legislative session: “Jesus, you are our only hope. At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.” Johnson-Harrell was livid. The prayer, she...

    President Trump on Friday said a Michigan congresswoman “dishonored herself” and disrespected the nation when she called him a “motherf–ker” while promising to impeach him. “I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family,” Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden, in response to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s incendiary comments from the night before. “I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America.” Tlaib dropped the expletive at a reception for the Move On campaign on Thursday night — just hours after she was sworn in.

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | November 7, 2018 | Robert Spencer
    As expected, two Muslim women, Rashida Tlaib in Michigan and Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, have been overwhelmingly elected to Congress. The establishment media will celebrate these victories as triumphs of America’s “diversity”; unfortunately, in reality neither one is worth celebrating. Tlaib is a vociferous foe of Israel. With the Democrats now regaining control of the House, Tlaib is likely to be an energetic proponent of the new majority’s vendetta against the Middle East’s only democracy. The House is likely to do all it can to roll back President Trump’s pro-Israel polices, with Tlaib as well as Omar as becoming the...

    At seven years old, Abdul El-Sayed sat in the eye of Hurricane Andrew, the most destructive hurricane in US history until Katrina. Living near Miami, El-Sayed drank juice while swaddled under mattresses between his father and stepmother, who was holding El-Sayed’s newborn baby brother just home from the hospital. The 1992 storm had taken an unexpected turn southward, and the El-Sayeds could not be evacuated. The wind made an awful rattling sound on the screens. The front door blew in. The wind and the rain whipped into the house, “as if the ocean was coming at you”. El-Sayed’s father, Mohamed,...

    Brotherhood-linked congressman publicly rejected Nation of Islam -- but it was all for show. After publicly repudiating his former colleagues at the Nation of Islam, DNC deputy chairman Keith Ellison dined with the group’s notorious leader Louis Farrakhan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, according to reports. The jihadist-friendly Ellison, a Democrat congressman representing Minnesota, is a former co-chairman of the Communist-linked Congressional Progressive Caucus. Although Ellison was not a senior Democratic Party official in 2013, now that his DNC post makes him much more than a fringe figure in his party, the meeting takes on a greater, darker...

Keith Ellison (D-MN) released the following statement after former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee: “Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony today revealed several things: First, that President Trump demanded Comey’s loyalty and tried to get him to beg for his job. Second, that President Trump asked Comey to end the investigation into Michael Flynn in order to cover up his campaign’s collusion with Russia.

    Today in Atlanta 447 members of the Democrat National Committee will meet to vote on the next Chairperson for the DNC. The two top candidates are Representative Keith Ellison and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez. The vote will determine which path the Democrat party will choose in the next several election cycles. Will they choose the direction of Black Live Matter Islamic Socialists, the coalition of Keith Ellison; or the more traditional Limo-Liberal Moonbat Communists of Tom Perez. The latest insider discussions put the race very close.
