16 Likely Democratic Presidential Candidates Endorse CAIR

Sixteen likely candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 have endorsed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization identified by the Justice Department as an “entity” of the Muslim Brotherhood linked to pro-Hamas operations in the U.S. The information can be found in CAIR’s own lists of supporters and a list of 100 pro-CAIR members of Congress released by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. CAIR and other Islamist groups use quotes from supporters, many of which presumably are unaware of the group’s background, to present itself as an authoritative leader of the Muslim-American community.

Silence as ISNA Kicks Out Gay Muslims From Conference

If you go into a bomb shelter, close the door and put on headphones, you’ll hear the sound of progressives reacting to how a top Muslim-American group discriminated against pro-LGBT Muslims: Total silence. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) shockingly kicked out a pro-LGBT Muslim group named Muslims for Progressive Values from its table at an event in early July.

What should be even more embarrassing for supporters of gay rights is that the Muslim group’s table was jointly reserved by Muslims for Progressive Values and…
