Governor Jay Robert Inslee of Washington spoke at an event on Martin Luther King Jr. Day that was organized by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.
Inslee spoke for CAIR's Muslim Lobby Day, where the group focused on three issues: Limiting usage of drones, funding low-income housing and passing the DREAM Act to grant financial aid for students without immigration documents. About 550 people attended the event.
CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial; federal prosecutors labeled it as an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee. The Committee was established in secret to advance the agenda of Hamas. The unindicted co-conspirator designation was upheld by a federal judge in 2009 because of "ample" evidence linking CAIR to Hamas.
