Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) asks the House to “join him in praising Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated, Hamas-linked CAIR for tens years of outstanding achievement”
“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Ohio Chapter.” (This is the same CAIR that has made enormous strides in infiltrating the highest levels of government, influencing U.S. policies on counter-terrorism, and using litigation jihad to make criticism of Islam/Muslims a hate crime while abusing our freedoms to prevent individual states from passing anti-sharia law legislation)
Thank God Kucinich was defeated in the Democrat primary for his House seat, so he will be gone in Jan. 2013.
Capitol Words (H/T Dave) Said Kucinich, “CAIR is a nationwide, nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.” For the past ten years, CAIR Ohio has played an instrumental role in helping to bridge the divides between Greater Cleveland’s diverse communities.
CAIR Ohio’s Tenth Annual Banquet will provide a platform for vibrant discourse led by this year’s distinguished speakers: Mr. Faisal Kutty, of Valparaiso University School of Law, Osgoode Hall Law School of York University and KSM Law and Imam Abu Farah of the American Muslim Youth Leadership Council and CAIR-Tampa. I commend these speakers for their efforts to promote civil liberties and social justice.
Mr. Speaker and colleagues, please join me in recognizing the Council on American-Islamic Relations Ohio Chapter for their tenth years of outstanding achievement. May their efforts to promote dialogue and create a more inclusive world continue to endure.
But this kind of near treasonous behavior on the part of Kucinich isn’t anything new. He has been in bed with the terrorism-supporters from CAIR since 2003.
WND Democratic Congressman fro Ohio Dennis Kucinich headlined a fund-raiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group with ties to the Mideast terrorist organization Hamas and an agenda for an Islamic USA.
CAIR announced its national fund-raising campaign had topped its goal of $1 million thanks in part to the standing-room-only banquet Saturday evening attended by more than 1,000 people, including Kucinich and Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va.
“We would like to thank all those who helped us reach our fund-raising goal,” said CAIR Chairman Omar Ahmad. “These added resources will enable us to continue and expand our work defending civil rights and promoting a positive image of Islam.”
Kucinich has taken part in other CAIR events recently, including a Ramadan iftar, or fast breaking, on Capitol Hill hosted by Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. That event was co-sponsored by Reps. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., Kucinich, Conyers, D-Ohio, Loretta Sanchez, D-Calif., and Barbara Lee, D-Calif.
