9/11 Victim’s Son Explains the Attack to Ilhan Omar: ‘There Is No Uncertainty’

9/11 Victim’s Son Explains the Attack to Ilhan Omar: ‘There Is No Uncertainty’During a 9/11 memorial service on Tuesday, the son of a woman who died in the World Trade Center castigated Representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) for the dismissive way she recently characterized the attacks that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans.Nicholas Haros Jr., wearing a black shirt emblazoned with the phrase “some people did something?” took the stage during the memorial service at Ground Zero to remind Omar and those assembled of what took place at the site exactly 18 years ago.“’Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota,” Haros said, referencing Omar's description of the event. “Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom. Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?” Haros asked. “On that day, 19 Islamic terrorist members of al-Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage. Is that clear?”Omar offered the flippant description of the 9/11 attacks earlier this year during a speech before the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Her speech focused on the federal government's encroachment on the civil liberties of Muslims in the wake of the attacks, which, she falsely claimed, served as the impetus for CAIR's founding.“CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said. CAIR was actually founded in 1994.Haros concluded his remarks by admonishing Omar — and the three fellow freshman progressive lawmakers who together refer to themselves as “the squad” — not to use the events of September 11th to score cheap political points.“Stop. Stop. Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props for your political theater,” Haros said. “Their lives, sacrifices, and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts.”

Fox News Guest: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Have ‘Grotesque Holocaust Envy’

Fox News Guest: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Have ‘Grotesque Holocaust Envy’Fox NewsReacting to the controversy surrounding Israel’s decision to deny entry to Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a Fox News guest said on Monday night that the two Muslim congresswomen have “Holocaust envy” because they’re “Islamists.”Appearing on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, Qanta Ahmed—who has written for The Daily Beast in the past—blasted the two progressive lawmakers over their Monday press conference in which they denounced the travel restrictions and claimed Israel was suppressing voices of dissent.“What you are seeing is a full-blown Islamist propaganda,” Ahmed said. “These are professional victim-mongering women who unfortunately have been elected to Congress but are using every tool in the playbook of the Muslim Brotherhood of Islamists.”Host Laura Ingraham, meanwhile, said it was easy for her to be “upset and angry about their political Islamist approach to these issues” because she just wants to “defend Israel.” She went on to ask Ahmed if the congresswomen could be “change agents for good.”“They could be—they could be,” she replied. “If they were pluralist Muslims, if they knew what was in the Quran, where we recognize Jews, where we recognize the sanctity of Moses, the holiness of the Torah. But they’re not.”“They are using Islamist tactics to invert reality,” Ahmed continued. “What they are seeking—they have a grotesque Holocaust envy.”She went on to claim that Islamists “envy what they see as the special mark upon the Jewish people that is the membership of genocide” because they want to make it appears as if they’re the “most persecuted” while they “deny the Holocaust.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
