CAIR Backs Omar’s ‘Legitimate Criticism’ of Israel

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, expressed support for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent anti-Semitic tweets alleging the purchase of American foreign policy by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

“CAIR applauds Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for their courage in speaking the truth about Israel’s racial, religious and ethnic segregation,” CAIR tweeted on Monday. “Agenda-driven groups — like AIPAC — have for decades enabled that segregation and the resulting denial of human rights for Christian and Muslim Palestinians.”
