Washington Governor Speaks at Islamist Event
Governor Jay Robert Inslee of Washington spoke at an event on Martin Luther King Jr. Day that was organized by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.
Inslee spoke for CAIR's Muslim Lobby Day, where the group focused on three issues: Limiting usage of drones, funding low-income housing and passing the DREAM Act to grant financial aid for students without immigration documents. About 550 people attended the event.
CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial; federal prosecutors labeled it as an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee. The Committee was established in secret to advance the agenda of Hamas. The unindicted co-conspirator designation was upheld by a federal judge in 2009 because of "ample" evidence linking CAIR to Hamas.
