Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recently spoke at an event where she talked about 9/11 and carelessly said “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
The New York Post has responded to those statements with a cover of the twin towers coming down in a fiery inferno, along with the caption, “Here’s your something.”

In the issue, the editorial board for the paper wrote, ” How pathetic: A member of Congress can’t acknowledge what happened on one of the most horrific days in US history.”
They went on to say, “No one expects Muslims to “hide” after an attack by Islamist terrorists. No group should be blamed for the deeds of a few of its members. But defeating terrorism requires facing the facts of who’s behind it and why.
Instead, Omar claimed Muslims are being “terrorized” by the nation’s response to 9/11.”
And they also pointed out that CAIR was not founded after 9/11, but actually in 1994.
“Omar’s cavalier brushing off of the murder of thousands of innocents on 9/11 should shock all Americans, Muslims included, ” they concluded.
