“We stand with Ilhan Omar, the nominee for Congress,” were the words passed on this morning from Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Minnesota chapter member Linda Duprey and CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a press conference. Together with Omar, Duprey and Awad condemned the recent death threat letter that was mailed to one of their members, Linda Duprey.
The horrific threat was sent to the Duprey’s Town Hall program at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. Pamela Geller, leader of the anti-Islam activist group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), had planned to hold a meeting of her group in the church space, but their meeting was cancelled in July.
