I’m never one to begrudge praise when someone does the right thing no matter how much I’ve disagreed with them in the past. So a tip of the hat to new Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy for bucking her CAIR supporters on Friday in her first week in Washington DC and voting FOR the House resolution supporting Israel’s right to defend itself against attacks from Gaza, reaffirming the United States’ support for Israel, and supporting the peace process.
As I have reported here, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a HAMAS front group, invested significant money, time and energy to get Kilroy elected. It isn’t a stretch, considering her very slim margin of victory, that she owes her seat to CAIR. And in the past, she has been more than willing to do their bidding. But Ahmad Al-Akhras, Asma Mobin-Uddin and Abukar Arman must be steaming that Kilroy has turned on them so quickly. And to think that they couldn’t even get their own congressman, Keith Ellison, to vote against the resolution (he voted “present”)!
How are those political dividends paying off, CAIR?
