Rep. Omar: Remember 9/11... When People Were Mean to Me
There's a certain type of person who makes everything about themselves. For that type of person, 9/11 is the time they had to cancel a family vacation or couldn't watch anything on television for a week. Rep.Omar is that type of person.
“It’s important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the aftermath of 9/11, many Americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them, and so what I was speaking to was that as a Muslim, not only was I suffering as an American who was attacked on that day, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were now treating me as suspect,” Omar said.
Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is slated to speak next month at a benefit for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), known for supporting terrorist organizations that have acted against Israel and the United States.
FBI investigators uncovered evidence establishing CAIR's place in the "Palestine Committee," which was a Muslim Brotherhood-created network aimed at helping Hamas in the United States, according to a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. In 2009, US District Court Judge Jorge Solis ruled that there is "at least a prima facie case as to CAIR's involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas."
Moreover, the organization was officially designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates in 2014, placing it in the company of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and others.
Omar will be keynoting with Hassan Shibly, the executive director of CAIR-Florida, who is vehemently anti-Israel, believes that Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations and is known for openly discriminating against LGBTs.
In 2014, Shibly claimed that the Hamas terror tunnels uncovered in Operation Protective Edge in the northern Gaza Strip were “being used in the defense of Palestine.”
How dare Americans suspect Rep. Omar.
But another theme here is how 9/11 turns out to be the day that people were meant to her. Remember 9/11 and the people who were mean to me isn't just Omar's theme. It's the common theme of Islamist groups for whom the real victims of 9/11 were their own selves.
