House Democrats Turn to the Wrong Muslims for SOTU

As many as 25 House Democrats are expected to have Muslim guests during Tuesday night’s State of the Union speech. It’s in response to a call from Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim voted into Congress, to counter an “alarming rise in hateful rhetoric against Muslim Americans and people of the Islamic faith worldwide.”

The gesture might not generate much more than a shrug, except that in at least two cases, Democrats invited officials from a group the FBI formally avoids due to historic ties to a Hamas support network. Delray Beach Rep. Alcee Hastings invited Nezar Hamze, regional operations director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Florida. And San Jose, Cal. Rep. Zoe Lofgren invited Sameena Usman, a 10-year veteran government relations official with CAIR’s San Francisco chapter, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned.

    And yet:

    Islamic Society of Greater Portland had been administratively dissolved the entirety of 2013 and yet they contemporaneously held themselves out as a non-profit organization for purposes of receiving tax deductible contributions.

    The text on the web site today looks much the same as it did then:
    “ISGP is non-profit organization with the following aims and objectives:”

    I would like to ask her the following question but I am not in her district and her web-based form won’t let me send her email:

    Do you have any comments on such tax fraud?

    It’s as if the Democrats are rooting for the other side.
    How about that.

    Speaking of Nihad Awad and CAIR Florida.

    Here’s a photo of Sheema Khan’s buddy Awad where he’s at the pro-hamas rally where a Hezballah flag is being waved.
    Then we have the CAIR Florida which Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have endorsed. CAIR hands out leaflets asking muslims to avoid helping the FBI and it’s right under the noses of these two .
