Broward Democrat Chair Speaks at Radical Muslim Event
by Joe Kaufman
Last month, the Chairman of the Broward County Democratic Party, Mitch Ceasar, told a group of radical Muslims at their Florida annual banquet about how impressed he was of them and that he wished to work together with them to help educate children. This, after the national Chair of the Democratic Party, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, cancelled her speech at the same event, just three years prior.
Emerge USA has a deceptive name. While it sounds like a patriotic title, the politically active group is run by extremist Muslims with a sinister agenda.
The main individual behind Emerge is Khurrum Wahid. Wahid, the group's Co-Chairman, is a South Florida attorney who has built a name for himself by representing high profile terrorists. His past clients include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25 year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was given a life sentence for being a member of al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; and Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian.
