More than 120 members of Congress issued letters of support to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an anti-Israel organization that was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror case that proved connections to Gaza’s ruling terrorist organization, Hamas, and other radical Islamic entities.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported Thursday on the privately issued letters during CAIR’s gala conference in November 2019 in Washington, DC, that was headlined by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and former Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour. Omar issued such a letter.

The letters were mostly from Democrats, plus two Republicans.

Democratic 2020 presidential candidates Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) and billionaire Tom Steyer issued letters of support.

“CAIR has a long history of being a vicious anti-Semitic Israel-hating group. They irrationally condemn the Jewish state, but never condemn the murderous actions of Hamas or Syria, or the Palestinian dictator and terrorist [Mahmoud] Abbas,” Zionist Organization of America national president Mort Klein previously told JNS. “By calling for the genocide of Israel, they join the moral horrors of the Nazis and Stalin, without their power, thank God.”
