Ilhan Omar Backed Insurance Payments to Terrorists’ Families

Ilhan Omar, a prominent young face of the Democrat Party, has a long list of qualifications: she is female, African, and aggressively Muslim. With all that on her résumé, libs find no need to look at her record, which includes Jew-bashing, allegedly marrying her own brother — and more.

As Omar represents the Somali colony liberals have established for vote-farming purposes in Minneapolis, which is the terrorist recruitment capital of the USA, it should come as no surprise that she is sympathetic toward Islamic terrorism. US Liberty Wire has discovered something interesting from 2017, when Omar represented New Mogadishu in the Minnesota legislature:

[M]embers of the Minnesota House voted to pass H.F. 1397, a bill which would give life insurance companies the right to deny payouts to beneficiaries whose loved one died while committing an act of terrorism.

In a bipartisan effort, Republicans and Democrats joined together to pass the bill 127-2. Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minneapolis) and John Lesch (D-St.Paul) were the only two lawmakers who voted against the measure.

Lesch voted against it because he did not think it should be up to insurance companies to determine what constitutes an act of terrorism. As for Omar’s motives,

[T]he reasoning behind Omar’s no vote, the first Somali woman to be elected to public office in the United States, remains to be seen. Multiple attempts by Alpha News for comment on her decision were not returned.

Her motives are obvious in the context of her pro-Islam, anti-Western viewpoint. As a representative-elect, she was already exerting her influence on behalf of Somalis who tried to join ISIS. She has opposed attempts to counter Islamic radicalism, and announced she had been friends with Somali colonists who went off to become Al-Shabab terrorists.

On a less personal level, she is a friend of homicidal socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro — likely as a result of being on good terms with America’s worst enemy, Iran. Via Power Line:

Iran’s mullahs are close allies of the Chavez/Maduro regime and Iran, like Russia and China, has refused to recognize Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s interim president and has denounced him as a “right wing extremist.” I think Omar is most likely taking her marching orders from Iran’s mullahs.

Getting back to the Minnesota antiterrorism bill Omar voted against, it was inspired by the Islamic savagery that broke out in San Bernardino in 2015:

The shooter, Syed Rizwan Farook took out two life insurance policies totaling $300,000 in the midst of planning the terrorist attack that took 14 lives.

Omar aggressively sides with Palestinian terrorists against America’s ally Israel. The Palestinian Authority routinely makes generous cash payments to the families of “martyrs” — a tactic used to funnel Western aid into terrorism by increasing motivation to carry out suicide attacks. Omar wanted insurance companies to be forced to make similar payments in the USA.

As Monica Showalter notes,

Someone with this record should be a pariah.

Yet the Democrat Party placed this freshman representative on the House Foreign Relations Committee, making her privy to sensitive information and putting her in a position to influence US policy on behalf of our enemies.

That is what the Democrat Party stands for now. It is the party of treason.
