Rep Ilhan Omar Blames US for the Actions of Terrorists
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has become quite the lightning rod lately- and it is a well deserved situation. After it was learned that she tried to defend ISIS terrorists by sending a letter to the judge, it has now been revealed that she claimed that the Kenya Mall attack (also known as the Westgate Bombing) on September 21, 2013 was because the US was “involved in other people’s affairs.” (Video below). She was a Somali political activist at the time.
The Kenya mall attack killed 71 people and wounded at least 200. It continued over the space of several days, not coming to an end until September 24. She is either practicing taqyya (lies) or a complete fool who has never read her own so-called “holy” book.
In an interview with Ahmed Tharwat the host for Somali TV Shot Bel Ahdan just after the Westgate bombing, Omar made some sad but expected statements.
“When are we gonna decide or realize that terrorism is a reaction?” . It’s an ideology, it’s a means of things, it’s not an entity, it’s not a place, people. It’s a reaction to a situation.” Ahmed Tharwat, TV Host of Bel Ahdan asked her.
“Yes, What you’re insinuating is what nobody wants to face. Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of the radicalization and the rise of terrorist acts…Usually most people want to not look internal and see what their actions that makes another react. For us, it’s always ‘I must have not done anything. Why is it happening to me?’ Nobody wants to take accountability of how these are byproducts of the actions of our involvement in other people’s affairs.” Ilhan Omar
The narrative she espouses is a deliberate attempt to blame others for terrorist activity, and is manipulative propaganda. The deflection of blame is common in leftist mentality. The whole idea that there wouldn’t be any terrorists if everyone ‘minded their own business’ is ludicrous. There is evil in the world. Period. It exists in every walk of life across the board. Islamic Terrorism just happens to be one of the worst.
