CAIR-MN Asks GOP to Repudiate Michele Bachmann’s Anti-Mosque Remarks
(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 10/13/13) — The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) today called on state and national Republican leaders to repudiate comments by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who falsely claimed in a recent radio interview that American mosques are seeking to “advance the goals” of foreign nations and organizations.
In that interview with Christian radio host Jan Markel, Bachmann said: “We’re seeing this all across America. It’s like groups want to top each other and be the new latest, largest mosque in North America. What we’re told is that many of them are funded by the Saudi Arabians or the Qataris. And so many of these mosques’ funding actually comes from foreign countries that have interests in advancing the goals and beliefs of the violent Muslim Brotherhood.”

Not surprisingly, Muslim Brotherhood fan, John McCain, agrees with terror-linked CAIR.
