This Tuesday there were interesting faces seen in the House Chamber of Congress, and by interesting faces, I mean folks with ties to the terrorist organization Hamas.
They were two representatives of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, and they were invited by Democratic National Committee ChairwomanDebbie Wasserman Schultz, with the permission of the White House. She says its to show how accepting America is but she sure picked the wrong group to make that impression with.
CAIR represents the families of the San Bernardino shooters, were called a “Hamas font” by FBI agents in 2007-08, banned by the FBI from agency outreach.
In fact, the director of the FBI at the time wrote in a letter on Congress:
“Until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and Hamas, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.”
So why on God’s green earth were they allowed into the halls of Congress? That’s a question for the DNC.
From Investors Business Daily:
Normally, suspected terrorists wouldn’t get within 100 feet of Capitol security. But Democrats asked police to stand down and let operatives from a Hamas front group to attend, of all things, the State of the Union.
Two representatives of the Council on American-Islamic Relations were invited as guests of honor at the urging of Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz — and with the consent of the White House.
In a letter to lawmakers, Wasserman explained that inviting these and two dozen other Muslim guests to the president’s speech would show “the world that we will not be intimidated by fear into discrimination” against Muslims in the wake of last month’s massacre by Muslim terrorists in San Bernardino.
Should members of this group been allowed at the State of the Union? Sound off in the comments below!
