    CAIR has a long history of affiliation with Hamas and Hezbollah. It was reportedly a co-conspirator in the largest terrorist financing case in US history, which went unindicted. CAIR has a long history of affiliation with the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. CAIR members have often defended the actions of Hamas in Gaza. Further, FBI investigators uncovered evidence establishing CAIR's place in the "Palestine Committee," which was a Muslim Brotherhood-created network aimed at helping Hamas in the United States, according to a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. In 2009, US District Court Judge Jorge Solis ruled that there...

    Over the course of the past few months, newly minted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has come under fire for a number of anti-Semitic comments. She’s said everything from Israel “hypmotizing the world” to implying politicians are bought off by Jewish interests and “all about the Benjamins.” For her most recent series of anti-Semitic slurs on Twitter, Omar was condemned by Democratic House leadership. “We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of...

    The Left distorts what happened in El Salvador in the 1980s. In a viral exchange at a congressional hearing last week, the new congresswoman from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar, who is quickly establishing herself as the most reprehensible member of the House Democratic freshman class despite stiff competition, launched into Elliott Abrams. She accused the former Reagan official and Trump’s special envoy to Venezuela of being complicit in war crimes. “Yes or no,” she demanded, “would you support an armed faction within Venezuela that engages in war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide, if you believe they were serving U.S. interest,...

    (Gateway Pundit): Ten years ago today… Democrat Ilhan Omar married her biological brother. Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn. Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis. The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother. Power Line reported: A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar...

It’s not considered to be part of the mainstream media, and you certainly can’t cite it as a source when adding content to wikipedia.That being said, I am a long term reader of PJ Media, and I tend to view most of what it publishes as being credible.

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - In the dead of the cold, late night on Tuesday, a young Somali man was shot in the hip. Someone took him to the local trauma center, left him there, and drove off. The man told police at his bedside that he didn’t know who shot him, who took him to the hospital, or why he was targeted. “I’m intoxicated,” he told cops, while doctors tended his wound, before insisting he didn't know anything else about what happened. For the attending police officers, it was a frustrating, albeit familiar, response from a member of the Somali community,...

    In the 116th Congress, if you’re a Democrat, you’re either a socialist, a baby killer or an anti-Semite. That, at least, is what Republicans want voters to think, as they seek to demonize Democrats well in advance of the 2020 elections by painting them as left-wing crazies who will destroy the American economy, murder newborn babies and turn a blind eye to bigotry against Jews. The unusually aggressive assault, which Republican officials and strategists outlined in interviews last week, is meant to strangle the new Democratic majority in its infancy. It was set in motion this month by President Trump,...

    Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is scheduled to raise money in March with the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) only a week after she used an anti-Semitic trope to claim Israel has paid for GOP support. Omar will be the keynote speaker at CAIR’s 4th Annual Valley Banquet on March 23 to discuss advancing justice and empowering Muslims, according to the organization’s invitation. Single tickets start at $55 per person and a table can cost upwards of $500. Hassan Shibly, the chief executive director for CAIR-Florida, will also be speaking at the event. Shibly has emphatically stated that Hezbollah...

    Meet the Somali Muslim Congresswoman Who's Joined With Socialists to Take Down America Somali Muslim Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is fighting against the president, Israel, the police, and America. Her weapon of choice? Socialism. Wait a minute! What do Islam and Socialism have in common? Omar is the woman who recently said that the money spent by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was a “PRIMARY motivation for American politicians to hold pro-Israel positions.” Even Democrats joined Republicans in condemning her statement. She made an “apology” but President Trump said it was “lame” and said she should resign. Omar...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) privately reached out to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) despite the congresswoman’s getting hit from both sides of the political aisle for a series of anti-Semitic messages. Sanders, who is Jewish, reportedly spoke with Omar as she battles through a controversy that has included references to Israel as “evil,” comparisons of Israel to Iran, repeated anti-Semitic tropes, and support of the anti-Semitic BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement. It has even progressed to badgering a Jewish diplomat.

    shortened title. Full title: Bernie Sanders on Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets: “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters” Questions for Bernie: 1. Yes, but will they stand by you, when the chips are down? Remember the Communist Tudeh Party in Iran, which supported Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution, only to be banned and persecuted by the Khomeini regime. 2. If a first-term Jewish Congresswoman had posted a series of tweets criticizing jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others, how many seconds would it have taken you to withdraw your support from her...

    Conservatives are fuming after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over a Sunday night tweet widely interpreted as anti-Semitic, followed by a criticism of pro-Israel money in US politics. Omar issued a Monday apology, which many have compared to Rep. Steve King (R-IA) – who apologized in January over controversial remarks, yet was stripped of his committee assignments after Congressional Democrats demanded his removal. President Trump on Tuesday said to White House reporters of Omar: “I think she should either resign from congress or she should certainly resign...
