Minnesota Governor Tim Walz Speaks at Hamas-linked CAIR’s “Challenging Islamophobia” Conference

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz Speaks at Hamas-linked CAIR’s “Challenging Islamophobia” Conference

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.

But all this sort of thing is mainstream on the Left and in the Democrat Party now, so Tim Walz has no need to fear any fallout from appearing at this conference. Condemning “Islamophobia” is an entirely safe political position to take, and Walz is doubtless entirely unaware of the fact that it is an intentional conflation of two distinct and unrelated phenomena: vigilante attacks against innocent Muslims, which are never justified, and honest, accurate analysis of the motivating ideology behind the jihad threat. The purveyors of “Islamophobia” propaganda are trying to shut down the latter by equating it with the former. Tim Walz is their willing stooge, because he knows, even as he decries opportunistic politicians who are supposedly getting votes by spreading “hate,” that jumping on the “Challenging Islamophobia” is a big vote-getter, particularly in Minnesota. Opportunistic politicians, indeed.
