Dem Rep James Moran Gives Money to Terrorist Front Group CAIR

Evidence accrues that a vote for Democrats is a vote for the Islamic terror war against Western Civilization:

A Democratic congressman has donated funds to a political group that was implicated in a criminal fund-raising operation for the jihad group, Hamas.

“Thank you Congressman James Moran for his generous personal donation to @CAIRNational at #CAIRturns20,” said a tweet from Linda Sarsour, the host at a Sept. 27 fund-raiser for the jihad-linked Council on American Islamic Relations. …

The Islamic group also gave the Democrat a “Lifetime Achievement Award” during the fundraising event, which provided CAIR with at least $350,000.

What does a congresscritter need to do to get such an award from a terrorist front group, other than give them money? Propaganda support is always appreciated:

Critics say the Democrat has repeatedly suggested that Jews are responsible for starting various wars in the Arab countries.

CAIR mostly serves to generate propaganda itself. But it has also directly raised funds for terrorists.

In 2009, a judge confirmed the Justice Department’s decision to name CAIR, its founder and [Executive Director Nihad] Awad as unindicted co-conspirators in a scheme to smuggle funds to Hamas, which is a jihadi affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. …

Five men in the smuggling ring were sentenced to jail in 2009, including two who were given 65-year sentences. …

Separately, five CAIR employees or employees have been jailed or deported for terror-related offenses.

Alarmingly, Moran isn’t the only Democrat on cozy terms with CAIR. As noted here, plenty of Dems have taken money from these jihadists, presumably in return for influence. Then there is the Stander With the Muslims in Chief:

In June 2012, a top White House official said administration officials have had 100s of meetings with CAIR. “There is [sic] hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” George Selim told The Daily Caller, after being asked if his office refuses to meet with any Muslim groups. Selim is the White House’s director for community partnerships.

CAIR money continues to buy favor in Congress:

In May 2012, a covertly-taken photograph showed Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi standing near Awad at the top-dollar fundraiser. …

The cheapest tickets cost $5,000, and the most expensive were $30,800 per couple, according to the event invite from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which used the cash to fund Democratic candidates.

This may cast some light on why Democrats are willing to go along with Obama’s failed policy of siding with the rabidly anti-American Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Libya.

Awad is the one with the creepy smile.
