Bombshell allegations have been levied at Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. If true, this would rock the political landscape in DC.

According to Al Arabiya English, who originally broke the story, Omar was recruited by a foreign government, passed sensitive information that was then relayed to Iran, and received funding from a foreign government, according to a sworn deposition made by a Canadian businessman in a Florida court.

In video link testimony from Toronto, Canada to a Florida District Court on October 23, Kuwaiti-born Alan Bender claims to have ties with governments and royal officials across the Middle East including Qatar.

Bender claims to have been asked by Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari officials to recruit American politicians and journalists to be Qatari assets.

He says he objected but the Qatari officials responded by saying that several American politicians and journalists were already on the payroll—most prominently Omar, who was allegedly described as the “jewel of the crown”, according to the deposition.

The three allegedly claimed credit for Omar’s meteoric rise, saying:

“If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends,” according to Bender’s sworn deposition.

The deposition was obtained by Al Arabiya English and authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs.

Omar also reportedly met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a key supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, when she was a junior state representative in Minnesota in 2017. According to Bender, Omar met Erdogan and allegedly swore allegiance to him.

Bender claims that once Omar took office, she used her position in the House of Representatives to access sensitive information which she relayed to Qatar, and through them to Iran.

According to Bender’s deposition, Omar’s role in the Qatari influence campaign is crucial. She actively recruited other politicians on behalf of Qatar, he said in the deposition. The Qataris claimed that:

“The best thing money can buy are American officials because they are the cheapest of the cheapest costing officials in the world,” according to his sworn testimony.

Omar has already been negatively spotlighted for breaking campaign finance rules, as well as for alleged immigration fraud regarding a fake marriage she arranged with her brother to enable him to immigrate.

Omar has also been named in a divorce case, as Washington D.C physician Beth Wynett charged that Omar had been romantically involved with her husband Tim, a campaign consultant who Omar had employed.

Bender’s accusations however go much further. According to his testimony, Al-Masnad said that Qatar:

“…recruited Ilhan Omar from even way before she thought about becoming a government official.… They groomed her and arranged the foundation, the grounds, for her to get into politics way before she even showed interest. They convinced her.”

For her part, Omar cooperated with the Qataris and received cash payments, he alleges in the deposition.

“Since the day she was elected, Saudi Arabian trolls and mouthpieces have targeted Representative Omar with misinformation and conspiracy theories,” wrote a spokesperson for Omar.

Her campaign says it’s not true.

“The latest outlandishly absurd story from a Saudi-funded media outlet is of course false and only the latest in that trend,” they said. “The only people Representative Omar represents in Washington are the people of Minnesota’s 5th District. She will continue to speak out against human rights violations around the world-whether it is war crimes in Yemen or the caging of children at our border-regardless of who commits them.”

Omar has created a firestorm of controversy and disgust through several statements and tweets dating back several years. 

Her most recent comments, however, are the most inflammatory. 

While we use words like “inflammatory” to describe her words, and in other politically correct descriptions, she is “controversial” or “aggressive” in her speeches and written communications, but many Americans, veterans, patriots, Jewish people, and police officers see her words as subversive and traitorous.

Subversive is the action verb version of “subversion.”

Subversion directly references “undermining of power and authority of an established system or institution” – she does this both in her words against Americans and her deeds – advocating for Sharia Law – we’ll get into that in a moment. 

The word “traitor” is thrown around constantly and has lost the depth of its original meaning.  A traitor is someone who betrays a friend, country, or principle.

News Point posted a video reference where Representative Omar has been found to have laughed at Americans and their fear of Al Qaeda after 9/11.  The Somali-born Congresswoman remembered taking a terrorism class and laughing at Americans fear.  Her quote from the video:

“The thing that was interesting, in the class, was every time the professor said ‘al-Qaeda,’ his shoulders sort of went up.”

In the video, she smiled and emphasized what was said.

An explosion of emotion, mostly from the families of 9/11 victims and first responders was seen in the past week where on a talk show, she described the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something” and went on to play the victim card about how Muslims were treated or looked upon differently after we lost more than 3,000 Americans in those attacks – attacks carried out by only Muslim men.

Recent FBI information indicates that her district holds the dubious honor of having the highest terrorism recruitment and radicalization numbers in the nation.

She wants to defund and disassemble the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

She is fully in support of the Anti-Israel and Anti-Jewish BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) Movement, a Palestinian-led movement for “freedom, justice, and equality” that pressures Israel to comply with their ridiculous demands and give up their territory, being assimilated into Palestine and the rest of the Arab/Muslim world.

American leftists flock to defend her, but they simply don’t realize the intent and plan of the Islamic faith.  This isn’t a conspiracy theory, it’s a fact stated by many of their leaders.  It is their intent to take over the world and assimilate or KILL those who won’t join them.

I shake my head when people like this jump on the bandwagon.  “Climate reporter” for the Huffington Post, Alexander Kaufman tweeted: 

“The bad-faith attacks against Omar … are predicated on the notion that Omar is already presumed guilty. She isn’t afforded the presumption that she would find the 9/11 attacks just as abhorrent as anyone else ― all because she’s Muslim.”

I learned a great deal about the Islamic religion while serving in the military, and since then with my constant studies of politics and religion.  Before someone starts throwing out words like “Islamophobic” and “racist,” please allow me to shut you down. 

A “phobia” is a fear.  It would indicate that I fear Islam, and I do not. 

Also, Islam/Muslim isn’t a race.  It really isn’t even a religion. 

When I think of religion, I think about Baptists, Catholics, or Jews who try to live a certain way, go to church on Sundays, and say grace before meals. Islam is a cradle-to-the-grave life where everything, and I mean everything, is controlled by this ideology. From when you wake up in the morning, until you go to bed at night, every single aspect of your life is dictated and controlled by the Quran, from what you eat, when you pray, and how you do business. 

We could compare, in some ways, Islam to the Amish. The Amish separate themselves from other groups and parts of society, practice their religion, and carry out every aspect of their lives based on their faith. 

We need not be concerned about the Amish, however, because it wasn’t the Amish who flew aircraft into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. 

It wasn’t the Amish who shot and killed 50 people in a gay nightclub in Florida. 

It wasn’t the Amish who killed the very people they worked with in San Bernardino. 

And it wasn’t the Amish who have carried out hundreds of terror attacks against non-Amish people, causing death and injuries to thousands.

One thing that struck me straight in the heart and the brain was the Islamic practice of “taqiyya,” or their practice of lying to infidels, non-Islamic believers, in order to obtain their goals. And we already know what their goals are – but still so many in our nation, in the name of diversity and inclusion, fight tooth-and-nail to allow these people to lie to them and infiltrate our society and government – with that single goal in mind.

Something else that is both ironic and anger-producing is that in knowing the Islamic/Sharia culture, women like Ilhan Omar could have never run for public office, or even spoken in public, in Somalia or other Muslim countries. 

It is forbidden to speak to a man other than your husband without your husband present. A woman could be stoned to death just for doing so. 

Yet, in our country, this woman gave speeches, held fundraisers, and ran for her US Representative position, and won.  And now she spews hate and contempt for the very country that allowed her to achieve this goal that is impossible in her home country.
