Debbie Wasserman Schultz Backs Out of Islamist Event After Blowback
DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was scheduled to give the keynote address at a fundraiser hosted by an American Muslim on the Federal Terrorist Watch List, is backing out. Called out by her Republican opponent Joe Kaufman, Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman issued a statement that “there was a miscommunication, she is not speaking to the organization … we never agreed to do a fundraiser, nor this event.” But, as usual, Wasserman Schultz is lying. You can see the flyer here.
The event, which was to raise funds for EMERGE USA, is to be hosted by Khurrum Wahid, an attorney who has defended immigrants detained for questioning in the wake of the 9/11 attacks as well as a man convicted of plotting a subway station bombing. Wahid currently represents imams who are accused of providing material support to the Pakistani Taliban.
Schultz has never been ashamed to consort with those hostile to Israel or America. She has welcomed J Street, the George Soros and Arab-funded terror group to her offices, as well as hosting the first conference for them; this is the same anti-Israel organization that Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, said was "fooling around with the lives of 7 million people.” She supported President Obama’s call for Israel to return to its suicidal pre-1967 borders – and, of course, she hired Dani “Jewbags” Gilbert as the liaison to the Jewish community.
Wasserman Schultz, as head of the DNC, is looking for money wherever she can find it. And that means the enemies of America and Israel have a willing partner – until, of course, they become inconvenient.
