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.
Sarsour did not say how much money the Democrat donated.
Moran is a Democrat who represents the Alexandria district in northern Virginia. He’s not running for reelection in 2014.
The Islamic group also gave the Democrat a “Lifetime Achievement Award” during the fundraising event, which provided CAIR with at least $350,000.
Critics say the Democrat has repeatedly suggested that Jews are responsible for starting various wars in the Arab countries.
Moran accepted his CAIR award shortly after the head of the CAIR group, Nihad Awad, spoke at the podium.
