NEW YORK — Florida Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum delivered an in person welcome and message of encouragement to attendees at an event organized by the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that boasted as one of its main two agenda items support for the extremist Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel.

Gillum’s participation in the CAIR-led event, which took place in 2016, seems at odds with statements over the past few days from associates of his campaign saying that Gillum opposes the BDS movement.

A CAIR-Florida press release from February 12, 2016, documents that Gillum delivered a “personal welcome” to attendees of that year’s annual Florida Muslim Capitol Day event, which was held at the Islamic Center of Tallahassee, the city where Gillum serves as mayor.

Florida Muslim Capitol Day is organized by CAIR. CAIR employees are listed as the contacts for the event on flyers and promotional material, and Florida Muslim Capital Day’s website is hosted by CAIR-Florida’s main website. The Facebook page for the event says it is hosted by CAIR-Florida.

The CAIR-Florida release relates Gillum’s personal welcome was “inspiring” to the group:

Attendees of the event were honored by a personal welcome from Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum on the Wednesday evening before the event at the Islamic Center of Tallahassee. The mayor’s words were inspiring as he applauded the Muslim community’s participation in this civic engagement event that stressed the importance of political involvement in a political climate that is, unfortunately, filled with xenophobic rhetoric.

The release documents that one of the two main agenda items for that year’s event was opposition to legislation that seeks to bar state funds from going to businesses that support the BDS movement against Israel. In other words, the event sought to galvanize opposition to anti-BDS legislation.

The release states:

Two main concerns of the Muslim community were addressed in face-to-face meetings between the participants and their legislators. CAIR-Florida remains troubled about the legislature’s willingness to support an anti-democratic bill, SB 86/HB 527, which would punish businesses for their constitutionally-protected free speech rights to boycott human rights concerns in Israel and Palestine.

This bill would set a very dangerous precedent that is not befitting a democracy. The second important issue, Representative Ray’s anti-refugee Bill, HB 1095/SB 1712, does not take into account that Syrian refugees are the most scrutinized individuals that enter the United States.

Wilfredo A. Ruiz, a spokesperson for CAIR-Florida, refused to comment to Breitbart Jerusalem when asked for more information on Gillum’s welcome speech at the event, including whether CAIR could provide Gillum’s specific quotes.

Gillum’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.

Gillum, however, has been associated with Dream Defenders, a radical movement aligned with Black Lives Matter that was part of a progressive coalition that reportedly committed $3.5 million to help Gillum win the Democratic primary against Gwen Graham. Dream Defenders strongly supports the BDS movement and refers to the entire state of Israel as the “continued settler colonial project.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported on a video of Gillum saying he is “pleased and proud” with the work of Dream Defenders.


Gillum, currently under FBI investigation, is as far-left as they get: Gillum’s Ties to Anti-Israel Radicals More Extensive Than Previously Known

Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s ties to radical anti-Israel groups are more extensive than previously reported, according to information obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

One pro-BDS group, Dream Defenders, has publicly endorsed Gillum, calling him one of the “most progressive” candidates in the country.

Dream Defenders, a Florida-based advocacy group that has emerged as a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, supports efforts to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and is intertwined with backers of the BDS movement, which has made common cause with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Dream Defenders often criticizes Israel for perpetuating what it claims is a “genocide” of the Palestinians. It also has led at least “two delegations to Palestine” in recent years, according to the organization’s website.

“Palestine is the site of a continued settler colonial project, the state of Israel,” Dream Defenders writes on its website, employing language used by many anti-Israel groups to delegitimize Israel. “The colonial project was born out of a political ideology called Zionism, established in the late 19th century.”

While Gillum has stated that he is loosely affiliated with Dream Defenders, the group’s founder, Phillip Agnew considers Gillum “part of the movement.”

“I met Andrew Gillum while I was a student leader at Florida A&M University,” Agnew stated in an August interview. “I wound up being student body president. And Andrew Gillum, who had been student body president, had also run and become the youngest commissioner in the city of Tallahassee at that point. His office was right off of campus. And it was in 2003, after seeing posters of millions of people who had descended on Tallahassee, led by Andrew Gillum as a student leader in the Arrive with Five march for affirmative action, that I really learned that the role as a student leader at Florida A&M is not one that is just concerned with the campus, but you are concerned with the lives of the people of the state of Florida. And Andrew taught me that in 2003.”

“So, in 2012,” Agnew continued, “when we started this organization, it is really with a model of what Andrew has led for many, many years in the state. We like to say Andrew Gillum isn’t a friend of the movement, he is a part of the movement.”

On one of its 2016 trips to the region, Dream Defenders employed convicted terrorist Mahmoud Jeddah as a tour guide. Jeddah, a onetime member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine—a U.S.-designated terror organization—spent 17 years in an Israeli prison for planting four hand grenades on a Jerusalem street, wounding nine civilians. He was later released in a prisoner swap.

Additionally, Gillum worked for over a decade at People for the American Way, or PFAW, an organization backed by liberal billionaire George Soros.

Since Gillum’s departure in January 2017, PFAW has gone on to sponsor at least one anti-Israel event alongside Samidouan, a pro-Palestinian organization that advocates for imprisoned terrorists and is tied to notorious terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, or PFLP, according to new information obtained by the Free Beacon.

“This news further demonstrates how Andrew Gillum regularly and proudly surrounds himself with anti-Semites who offer him political support but do not believe Israel has a right to exist,” the DeSantis campaign said in a statement.

The Free Beacon previously reported Gillum has supported and attended the Rockwood Leadership Institute, an organization financed by the New Israel Fund, a promoter of Israel boycotts and materials maligning the Jewish state.

One alum of the institute is Linda Sarsour, a prominent anti-Israel activist who has disseminated anti-Semitic materials and has been labeled by pro-Israel organizations as a chief promoter of the BDS movement.

A request for comment to the Gillum campaign was not returned by press time.

    It seems to me that Mr. Gillum is giving aid and comfort to our islamic enemies. Islam is at war with America. It plans to conquer and enslave America. It has attacked us on numerous occasions.

  2. Obama2, Andrew “Gibs” Gillum in Florida. He is being groomed to be the next Dem President.

    Andrew “GibsMe” Gillum is rounding up a bandwagon of stars as the Florida gubernatorial campaign heads into October and polls indicate he has the lead on Republican Ron DeSantis.

    The latest to commit to the campaign trail with the Tallahassee Mayor is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democrat’s presidential nominee two years ago.

    “I’m honored to have Secretary Clinton join me in Florida next month,” said Gibs Gillum Thursday.

    “Hillary knows just what’s at stake in this election — affordable healthcare, a brighter future for our children — and that the choice in this election could not be clearer,” Gillum said.

    GibsMe Gillum’s bandwagon of stars.

    Grant Hill: The former Orlando Magic player and current host on NBA-TV endorsed Gillum’s “passion, his intellect . . . (and) great ideas.”
    Norman Lear: The TV and film producer and founder of the People for the American Way posted an online video in which he said Gillum was “a dude I know that I’m crazy about” and “Florida is his state, governorship is his goal, and I think he can go further than that.”
    Will Packer: The Florida A&M graduate and St. Petersburg native has produced 28 films including “Girls Trip” and “Think Like a Man”
    Bernie Sanders: The presidential primary challenger to Hillary Clinton supports Gillum and held rallies for him Aug. 17 in Tampa and Orlando, which coincided with Gillum’s rise from fourth to first in the Democratic primary.
    Alyssa Milano: The “Who’s the Boss” actress followed up an early endorsement of Gillum with a thank you tweet to Florida the night of his primary victory: “Thank you, Florida! .@AndrewGillum has won the primary. He’s the right choice for this time in history.”
    Tom Joyner: His morning radio show is heard on 90 stations and annual Labor Day “family reunion” draws 25,000 to Kissimmee. Joyner’s subdivision does not allow lawn signs, so he walks around with a Gillum for Governor t-shirt. “It’s all about spreading the word,” he tells listeners.
    Alec Baldwin: The actor currently known for lampooning Donald Trump on “SNL” hosted a Santa Monica fundraiser for Gillum and other progressive candidates.
    Jane Fonda: The actress and activist has contributed $7,000 to Gillum’s Forward Florida committee.
    Tyler Perry: The actor, playwright and creator of Madea has contributed $100,000 to the Forward Florida Committee.
    George Soros: The billionaire mega-donor to liberal candidates funneled about $500,000 to Forward Florida in the final two months of Gillum’s come-from behind primary victory.
    Tom Steyer: The California philanthropist and clean energy advocate pledged to spend $5 million in the fall campaign to register and mobilize voters for the Andrew Gillum campaign.
    Diddy: Sean Combs is the entrepreneur, rapper and producer known professionally as Diddy. He called on his fans the night before the primary to make history and vote Gillum.

  3. Everything possible must be done to hang the albatross of terrorism around the neck of Gillum. Associating yourself with the terrorist group cair should be known to every voter in Florida before one vote is cast.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
