The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the organization that recently hosted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as their keynote speaker, contains leadership that had reportedly expressed vile wishes in the past that include the desire that Hitler was still alive and murdering Jewish people.
According to a discovery by Alpha News, in 2008 the Government Affairs Coordinator of Minnesota’s CAIR chapter, Abubakar Osman, posted his desire for the German dictator who tortured and murdered millions of Jewish people to still be alive to increase the number past 6 million.
“i wish hitler was alive to f*** up the jewish ppl and add more jewish causalities to the 6 million he killed in the holocaust…,” wrote Osman.
The post itself has been deleted, and only screenshots of it remain. It cannot be wholly confirmed whether or not Osman posted this. However, Osman has expressed antisemitic views quite recently.

This leader has expressed highly antisemitic views, including apologies for terrorists and the spread of antisemitic conspiracy theories:
The MAS Minnesota branch is led by a man named Asad Zaman. Zaman has made it clear through numerous Facebook posts that he holds anti-Semitic attitudes. He has openly expressed apologies for Hamas and supported war criminals as well. Some of the links he has shared on Facebook lead to holocaust denial websites, and anti-Semitic conspircy theory sites that claim that “U.S. foreign policy is determined by Israel.”
Zaman met with Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in early during the National Muslim Advocacy Day organzied by the United States Coalition of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). Zaman’s group, MAS, is apart of the council of the USCMO.
Later, on Apr 3, Zaman delivered the Invocation at the State of the State address delivered by Governor Tim Walz. “These three faith leaders understand the meaning of One Minnesota—and they are practicing what they preach,” said Walz, but it’s clear that based on
