Omar's comment has become viral in conservative social media, with Rep.

However, many critics have put an end to Omar's quotation in which she said that many Muslims in the country were unduly linked to the attacks.
"CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people had done something and we were all starting to lose access to our civil liberties," she said.
CAIR was founded in 1994, but Omar's office said it was misquoted and it intended to note that the organization had doubled in size after the 2001 attacks.

The NY Post knows exactly what it does: take quotes out of context and conjure painful images to spread hatred and endanger the life of Representative Omar. Shame on them and shame on Rupert Murdoch.
