Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view.

The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public.

The article goes on to state the following:

Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.

CAIR, a Muslim advocacy group known for its anti-Israel positions, was named by the U.S. government as part of a large network of groups known to be supporting Hamas.

Speaking to the Beacon, Sarah Stern, founder and president of pro-Israel group Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET), said, “I just wonder what is Rep. Omar saying to a group of Islamic supporters that she feels is so secretive that she cannot say it to the American people, as a whole?”

Stern continued, “What is so secretive that it has to be off the record and closed to reporters? Will she say the same things in public to her Jewish voters in Minnesota that she says to her Islamic friends? What does this tell us about her openness, her honesty and her integrity?”

EMET has “condemned Omar for promoting anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” according to the Beacon. They told the Beacon that they are concerned about “the private nature of these events.”

    She is a Terrorist and having her on the Foreign Affairs Committee is like a Time Bomb waiting to happen.
    This very dangerous woman is up to no good and if we don’t get this woman out of Congress we will regret the outcome.
    President Trump needs to step up and take care of this evil POS.

    I question the FBI and CIA if they are not doing anything. What are they waiting on more innocent lives to be taken?

    There is speech and rhetoric to incite muslims in this country by Omar. She is a terrorist and must be monitored by antiterrorist groups. My concern are the number of muslim camps in this country. Why isn’t the FBI and homeland security monitoring them. Omar needs to be deported and her naturalization stripped from her.

    Has no one heard about J edgar hoover’s files on “EVERYONE”? I’m sure the FBI still has them and has added to them. The “good guys” are afraid to take action because there are very few “good guys”. The “bad guys” would ambush the “good guys” if the “good guys” don’t do what they want. Then, they would be no more. Lots of anti-semites and ragheads.

    Question: Are speeches given at fundraisers in general available to outside audiences? If they are, and this is true, then there is a point to be made. If not, then there isn’t. Sometimes we see or hear covertly(?) recorded and leaked material, but I wonder whether, as a rule, speeches at such events are made publicly available as a matter of course.

    The secrecy behind Omar’s meetings with her Hamas-supporting terrorist buddies at CAIR should be sounding an alarm loud and clear to Americans across the country….and in particular, to members of Congress unwilling to call her out, sanction/censure her and remove her from all committees forthwith. She is a traitor in their midst and her anti-American cohorts are a danger to our Democracy.
    Be warned: There are several pro-Israel conferences scheduled for 2019 – one beginning March 24 in D.C. Wouldn’t that be a big feather in somebody’s hijab to disrupt the proceedings…or worse. You know where I’m going with this, don’t you? How does anyone know she isn’t trading information gleaned from her place on the Foreign Affairs Committee to start something?
    Congress MUST impeach and remove this insidious viper; any less and they are complicit in her treason.

    Everone is afraid to make any negative comments lest they be labeled as racist. The fact that she is violating the US Constitution is minor compared that useless label.

    Funny how all you right wingers feel you deserve to hear what was in her speeches but don’t care at all that Trump isn’t releasing his secret dialogs with Putin, also a terrorist. Hypocricy.

    If they don’t want to wade into this controversy because of a label….an impotent one at that, innocent blood is on their hands…. and they deserve everything in store for them. Don’t forget: Muslims are big on beheadings. And Pelosi and her acolyte ChuckieCheese Schumer will be #1 & 2 in the crosshairs.
