The Terrorist Caucus in the House

Representative Ilhan Omar is a Minnesota Democrat who has been in Congress four months and, courtesy of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where she has privileged access to classified American secrets. Omar recently caused a stir – one of many that have made her a focus of national attention - by describing the attack on America on 9/11, as an attack on Muslims. The 9/11 attack - the worst by foreigners on American soil since the British burned the White House in 1814 - was in fact the work of Islamic supremacists engaged in a global jihad or “holy war.” This war had been unilaterally declared on America – “the land of Jews and Crusaders” - by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist army, al-Qaeda three years earlier.
Omar’s reference to the tragedy that befell Americans in September 2001 was revealing in itself. She prefaced it by complaining that Muslims in America were “second class citizens” who were denied the civil liberties afforded to other ethnic and religious groups. This was one of many lies in her brief comments. Then she invoked the massacre of 50 Muslims at worship by a deranged individual in New Zealand, while failing to mention the recent Muslim massacre of Filipino Christians at worship or the hundreds of attacks by Muslims on other religions since the beginning of the year.[1] Then she referred to the 9/11 atrocity not as an “attack” but as a non-descript event whose real significance was that it led to the creation of CAIR – the Council on American Islamic Relations - which presents itself as a Muslim civil liberties organization, and on whose platform she was speaking.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11,” she said, “because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”[2] The platform on which Omar made these repulsive claims – all of them false – was an organization created by the Muslim Brotherhood, the fountainhead of the Islamist jihad, and its terrorist offspring Hamas. As it happens the Brotherhood is the crucible doctrines that inspired Osama bin Laden and the terrorists responsible for 9/11.[3] Omar has headlined multiple fund-raising events for CAIR, which is still headed by the same individuals who ran the Hamas entities, from which it was created.[4]
Even Omar’s statement that CAIR was created in response to alleged attacks on Muslims after 9/11 is false, since CAIR was created in 1994, seven years earlier. Her statement that all Muslims began losing their civil liberties because of 9/11 is also false – and insulting - since President Bush went out of his way to deny that 9/11 had any Islamic dimension, despite the overwhelming evidence that it did, and to protect the Muslim community from reprisals, which included shipping members of Osama bin Ladens’ family, who should have been interrogated, to the safety of Saudi Arabia for their protection.[5]
