Just how close are those ties? Someone from the same group showed up for photo ops when she took office.
If you missed the story last week where some Moslem children in Philadelphia performed a skit in which they sang about the future conquest of Jerusalem, the glory of the martyrs, and recited the line ‘We will chop off their heads’ and ‘subject them to eternal torture’ as part of the celebration of their Ummah Day, we have it here for you to see for yourself.
Like much of Islam’s more objectional content we only know what’s being said because it’s been subtitled in English by the translation service of Memri.
Here’s the big takeaway from the 2-minute clip:
One girl talks about martyrs sacrificing their lives without hesitation to conquer Jerusalem.
“We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation,” a second girl says. “We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.”
MAS Philly belongs to the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has 42 chapters in the United States and one in the United Kingdom.
What does any of this have to do with Ilhan Omar?
Take note of the reference to MAS in the FoxNews quote, above. It will be relevant as we proceed.
The Federalist did a fairly long piece on the topic that is well worth reading in its entirety. It has some particularly damning details in it. You can read the full article here. Any block quotes that follow will be taken from that source.
It opens by reminding readers that Judicial Watch knows a thing or two about that group. They’ve been able to discover that…
JW was mentioned in @FDRLST: “A 1997 FBI file obtained by Judicial Watch identifies MAS as the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States controlled by Hamas sympathizers “known to conduct firearms and other military type training.” https://t.co/oZYUwoMRoV

The “Muslim Brotherhood” has a rather unsettling and bloody history. They’re also Islamists.
The Federalist article goes on to say:
A Justice Department filing (p. 58, fn. 13) in a terrorism-related case states that “MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” A September 2004 Chicago Tribune investigative report revealed that MAS had been founded by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, adopted the group’s strict code for secrecy, and promoted Islamic supremacy.
The article interviewed one former MAS member who explained the group’s vision for Islamic rule in America: “It would convert Americans to Islam and elect like-minded Muslims to political office.” Even more shocking is that freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D–MN), of other recent controversies, has openly supported MAS.
In fact, Omar’s support for MAS goes back years. Her deep ties to the group were on display when she had the MAS-Minnesota chapter Oresident Asad Zaman stand with her as she was ceremonially sworn into the Minnesota House of Representatives in January 2017 with her hand on an enormous Quran. MAS held a reception in honor of her inauguration.
Just a few months later, Omar spoke at the 2017 MAS “Muslim Day” at the state capitol, acknowledging that she had previously participated in the group’s annual event before. Omar was subsequently elected to Congress in November 2018, succeeding former representative and now Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, who had his own ties to MAS.
But the PartisanPress would have us believe that criticism of Ilhan Omar is unfounded and that calling her out for her AntiSemitism is somehow unjust… is that it?
Could the real reason that Democrats are afraid to speak out against antisemitism directly is because doing so will hurt their chances of kissing up to a particular voting block that doesn’t much like Israel, either for its place in the Middle East or in its role in American Foreign policy?
Here are a few of Ilhan Omar’s recent tweets:
Trump’s Muslim ban is a discriminatory, bigoted act of Islamophobia. It’s time we put the Muslim ban into the dustbin of history where it belongs and pass the #NoBanAct.

How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?
The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.

For those who haven’t been paying attention — Gaza is NOT under Israeli control. Nor has it been since 2005.
Since then, it has been entirely under the control of Hamas. And yet, they’re still firing rockets at Israel and paying martyrs’ families when terrorists manage to get themselves killed in violent conflict with IDF.
Also, as we’ve mentioned here Omar & Tlaib DEFEND Terrorist Attacks Against Israel
Israel differs from Hamas in that Israel defends civilians and targets the terrorists while Hamas specifically targets Israeli civilians.
And for the final tweet, we have some delusions of grandeur to cap it all off:
This is a president who has come to power vilifying and demonizing immigrants and refugees. He proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country.
It’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me. https://t.co/vl7tjmnSFr

No wonder she and AOC get along so famously.
She’s throwing around the word ‘Islamophobe’ as both an attack and a defense. But the Imam of Peace has turned that accusation on its head:
If the Imam of Peace will denounce the extremism of Omar and Tlaib, but the Democrats will not, what does that really tell us about the new political priorities of the DNC?
