From the time Ilhan Omar began her term in Congress, Minneapolis has made national headlines many times, but unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. And her lack of concern that Minneapolis has been ranked as the terrorist recruiting capital of the word makes it all the more difficult to understand how such a beautiful city could deteriorate to the point that Omar’s wish to disband and defund the Minneapolis Police Dept. could even be considered.
Gang violence, looting, robberies, murders of all kinds just to name a few have turned my hometown into a city that many potential tourists are now avoiding. And what has Omar done to improve that situation; absolutely nothing.
Just like Beirut, where a dangerous situation existed for years due to the explosive material ammonium nitrate being stored at the main port until it exploded, a more dangerous situation exists as long as Ilhan Omar occupies that seat in Congress.
On TOI’s home page, a story has been running titled –
Celeb politician Ilhan Omar’s congressional seat may be in jeopardy. Here’s why
In my opinion, the most important point that must be emphasized from this article is the following sentence –
Omar’s campaign turned down several requests to interview her or a spokesperson over the phone for this story.
Normally, a candidate who is proud of his or her record would jump at the chance of talking to the media. That is especially so considering that at 7am today, August 11, polls will open across Minnesota’s Fifth District.
This Begs The Question – Why Are Omar And Her Spokesperson Avoiding The Media So Often?
It is not normal for any member of Congress to continue to dodge the media as often as Omar has since she has been in office. There are many questions that remain unanswered about her family and marital history that she refuses to address. These unanswered questions raise the possibility of tax fraud and improper spending of campaign donations.
Another major concern is her support for the Palestinian cause and criticism of Israel at the expense of the Jewish residents of her district who are strong Israel supporters.
And looking at the increase in crime and violence in her district is an added warning sign that this will continue to deteriorate if she is elected for a second term.
Omar’s Relationship With Muslim Brotherhood
Only a few months into her term, Omar demanded that U.S. President Donald Trump push for the release of a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. The Jerusalem Post story related to this can be seen by clicking on the link above.
That should have already raised alarm bells with Congress demanding a full investigation into possible links Omar has with Muslim Brotherhood, which has been considered a terrorist organization. But nothing has been announced in this regard.
Looking into Muslim Brotherhood’s History, There Is Plenty Cause For Concern
In 2006, the Brotherhood supported Hezbollah’s military action against Israel. It does not recognize the State of Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood, between 1948 and 1949, sent volunteers to fight against Israel in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War
Muslim Brotherhood’s Founder
Sheikh Hassan Ahmed Abdel Rahman Muhammed al-Banna – 14 October 1906 – 12 February 1949), known as Hassan al-Banna was an Egyptian schoolteacher and imam, best known for founding the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the largest and most influential Islamic revivalist organizations
Moslem Brotherhood And Its Nazi Germany Connection
The Jerusalem Post ran the following article explaining the relationship certain Muslim Brotherhood leaders had with the Nazis-
Another publication named Al Arabiya ran the following article-
Within the article, it mentions the admiration Al-Banna had for the Nazis and Julius Streicher who published Der Sturmer.
Al-Banna was so obsessed with the Nazis, he also had copies of their anti-Semitic newspaper Der Sturmer, a tabloid published by the infamous Jew hating Julius Streicher, adapted to suit the Arab world, with its despicable anti-Semitic cartoons
Muslim Brotherhood In Somalia
Before she came to the US, Omar could easily have been influenced by Somalia’s wing of the Muslim Brotherhood which is known by the name Harakat Al-Islah or “Reform Movement”. Al-Islah emphasizes the reformation and revival of Islam to meet the challenges of the modern world”, whose “goal is the establishment of an Islamic state” and which “operates primarily in Mogadishu”. ]
Julius Streicher Was Hung 22 Years After First Publishing Der Sturmer
“It’s All About The Benjamins” Was Released August 12, 1997
That would mean Minnesota’s 5th District votes just one day before that song turns 23.
Since Congress did not do their job to investigate the many questions surrounding Ilhan Omar, it is now in the hands of voters to decide whether she will now be forced out of her seat and sent home 22 years plus after the song she made famous was released, which equals the same number of years that Streicher served.
