What happened to all that bravado she uses when slinging BS at the President? Now SHE is the one being held to account, and suddenly she’s got nothing to say.
It turns out that her home district is something of a terrorist hotbed. And considering her previous soft-on-terrorism positions, in asking a judge for leniency toward men caught trying to join ISIS…
As you undoubtedly deliberate with great caution the sentencing of nine recently convicted Somali-American men, I bring to your attention the ramifications of sentencing young men who made a consequential mistake to decades in federal prison. Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence. … Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment. …Read More: HERE
… you might think she would take this issue more seriously that she does.
(More about that case here.)
You might think an FBI report that names her own district as the terrorism hotspot of the nation would catch her attention. If not, you might at least think that, when questioned about it, she’d have the good sense to DENOUNCE terrorism.
After all, wasn’t SHE the one who caught hell when she accused Jewish Americans of having ‘divided loyalty’? You’d think she’d be especially mindful of not making her own loyalty to America seem … insincere.
Here’s how she handled reporter Nicholas Ballasy’s asking her a pretty straightforward question that anyone should be able to answer:
Watch @IlhanMN run away when asked about FBI stats showing her district to be the terrorist recruitment capital of the US. What’s worse, her district being a terrorist factory or Ilhan not knowing what the FBI say about her district?

How hard is it to take a position AGAINST terrorism? Like opposing slavery, it should be a no-brainer, right?
Nope. Well, not for Ilhan, anyway.
According to a Fox News report from February, “More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.” The city of Minneapolis is located in Omar’s district.
“FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS,” stated the report.
“It’s FBI stats but in general, what steps are you taking — what is your message to people who may want to join one of those groups within your district?”
Meanwhile… she’s heckling Trump for being AGAINST the Iran deal.
Ilhan Omar is once again siding with the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and is blaming America for their actions
Omar has a long documented history of repeatedly sympathizing with and advocating for terrorists https://t.co/BSUxlAb1l9

She can’t figure out what to say about a spike in Terrorist activity in her district, but she has ‘ready advice’ for the President that he reinstate the Iran deal.
You know, the same ‘Deal’ that Iran was busted for breaking only WEEKS after it was signed. (But that bust was kept under wraps until just recently.)
What did Iran do to break faith with the deal? Oh, nothing much, just this:
Iranian-linked terrorists were caught stashing three tonnes of bomb-making materials in London in 2015.
It was just months after the Iran nuclear deal was secured. But MPs + the public have never been told.

That was enough explosive to make a bigger bang than the one seen in Oklahoma. But they’re operating in good faith, and only started getting twitchy after TRUMP did them wrong, eh?
What do you think she’d do if Ballasy had asked “Care to explain how exactly it was Trump’s fault during Obama’s presidency? Go ahead, take as long as you need to explain.”
Would his next words likely be:
“No wait… come back.”
Such ‘courage’ though, in this new crop of bellicose Democrats. Well, so long as they can stay on their assigned talking points, anyway. They start to flounder when they go off script.
