Rep. Omar Fundraising on Anti-Israel Premise she is Working for a ‘More Peaceful world’

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

Democratic Congressional Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has, alongside her anti-Israel colleagues and members of the ‘squad,’ been tweeting in support of Hamas as they continuously launch rockets into Israel this week.

Omar is now taking advantage of the criticism she received for her anti-Israel sentiments and capitalizing on it. Omar launched a fundraiser on Facebook, in which the ad from her campaign read, “A whole bunch of radical right-wingers – from Ted Cruz to Donald Trump – are angry at Ilhan for bringing to light violence against the Palestinian people during the holy month of Ramadan.”

“Will you donate $5, $10, or $20 now to support her campaign? Ilhan will never let up her work for a more peaceful world. It’s thanks to your support that she is able to give voice to the issue of human rights violations here and abroad” the campaign adds.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas accused Omar of acting as a “press secretary for Hamas.” Additional squad members’ comments on the violent attacks against Israel include Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan saying Israel is “promoting racism and dehumanization” under an “apartheid system” that discriminates against Palestinians.

New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was upset that Biden declared Israel had the right to defend itself, saying, the president gave little context to the situation and was “siding with the occupation.”

When Democrat and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang posted “I’m standing with the people of Israel who are coming under bombardment attacks, and condemn the Hamas terrorists” he later walked back his comments due to backlash from Omar and the progressive squad members.

    Can you tell Democrats are in power??? What Biden’s “Build Back Better” actually Obamas third term looks like: —Rising unemployment —Good-paying jobs killed —Gas and Food prices skyrocketing — Israel getting bombed —Dump criminal illegal aliens into our communities —Destroy small businesses —Destroy suburban neighborhoods with low cost housing —Releasing and Not Prosecuting Criminals —Protecting Domestic Terrorists ANTIFA/BLM —Dismantle policing while being protected by the police —Disarm Americans while being protected by armed police —Lawlessness —Inflation coming —Target the middle class with high taxes — Billionaires getting richer —Middle class getting poorer —Targeting children for transgender mutilation—Anti white racism —Inciting racism and violence —Border in crisis —The racist Democrats/DOJ/FBI Targeting political enemies.

    As usual, Cruz is absolutely correct. Omar has a twisted sense of right and wrong. Israel was recognized as a sovereign nation and if Trump were still in the WH the two nations would be sitting at the same table hammering out their differences. This is a complex situation that is being used to test JB and of course, he’s failing to step up to the plate to defend the US and its citizens. JB’s administration is the biggest, sickest, saddest joke of all time. God will set these people straight and it will get really ugly for all of them.

      Marcia, you are right on! The raghead of “the Squad” has no damn right to criticize Israel. As a Muslim, she has it in her genes to despise anything or anyone Israeli. SHE, who married her brother to give him citizenship; SHE, whose husband is said to use for his no-good deeds her campaign funds! However, as another Democrat, idiot Ilhan can do no wrong. She needs to be sent to China, never to return, to be thrown into the labor camps where the Chinese government is now holding thousands of Muslims. What a WITCH with a capital B! I despise her RACIST behavior along with her 3 other comrades who call everyone else “racist”. We do not need, and should expel, every Democrat in this Socialist, corrupt “administration” who STOLE and RIGGED the 2020 presidential election. I have decided that the worst, most despicable name one can call another is “Democrat”. I have made that my mantra. Raghead idiot Ilhan has no right whatsoever to remain in this country. She’s damned lucky, and she knows it, to be able to speak her wretched, racist mind and have this corrupt “administration” back her up. I believe that anyone who despises our wonderful, magnanimous country is a traitor and should be executed.

    She needs to be removed from Congress. If the law allows they should put her on trial for being a traitor and aiding and abetting terrorism.

    Yang had a chance to be the better man, and instead sided with the leftist nutjobs. Terrorism is terrorism… and it needs to be punished.

Afghan Journalists Release Photos After Being Severely Beaten by Taliban for Covering Women’s Protest

Published

Journalists

Two Afghan journalists, photographer Nematullah Naqdi and reporter Taqi Daryabi were severely beaten by the Taliban for reporting on a women’s protest in Kabul. The two were battered after being beaten with batons, electric cables and whips. The beating occurred after being detained for several hours by Taliban fighters a day earlier.

The two men, who work for Afghan’s media outlet Etilaat Roz, released photos of their bruised bodies once back in their Kabul office, after being released from Taliban custody. Naqdi told Agence France-Presse “One of the Taliban put his foot on my head, crushed my face against the concrete. They kicked me in the head…I thought they were going to kill me.”

Daryabi added “we were in so much pain that we couldn’t move.” Naqdi said he was told “you are lucky you weren’t beheaded” when asked why they were being beaten. When covering a protest on Wednesday outside a Kabul police station calling for an end to Taliban violations of women and girls, Naqdi said a Taliban fighter immediately tried to grab his camera when he began taking photos.

Journalists

The Taliban were also rounding up anyone filming or taking photos of the demonstration, added Naqdi. The two say they were taken to a nearby police station where the beatings took place, only to be released after several hours.

Journalists

The New York Post reports dozens of Afghan reporters have been beaten or accosted in recent weeks since the Taliban has recovered control of Afghanistan. The Taliban, however, claims that they will uphold press freedoms under their new regime. As has been proven time and time again, not much faith, if any, can be placed into anything the Taliban says or promises.

Raw Footage from Marine’s Helmet GoPro Shows ‘Two Straight Weeks of Worsening Conditions’ in Kabul

Published

on

Kabul

The Blaze got ahold of raw video taken from a Marine’s GoPro which shows the true chaos endured by those in Kabul as U.S. evacuations took place at the Hamid Karzai International Airport.

Marine Cpl. Mike Markland strung together the video clips from his helmet’s GoPro camera. The footage “captured the grittiness and desperation of the hurried evacuation” and reveals “two straight weeks of worsening conditions” on the ground, as seen from the viewpoint of the Marine from 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment.

The  7-minute video has been saved on a YouTube page and shows U.S. service members disabling American military equipment and vehicles. It also shows stacks of AK-47s, PK machine guns, M-16s, and other weapons likely abandoned by the Afghan military after the country collapsed. The end of the video pays tribute to the 13 U.S. service members who died in the suicide bombing in Kabul.

Markland originally posted the video to his Instagram account, but it has since been deleted. The Blaze reports Task & Purpose published the video, as well as Markland’s comments on social media before the video, had been removed.

“I hope this answers questions but also provokes you to ask more,” Markland captioned the since-deleted Instagram video. “To my brothers and sisters who were there I made this for you and your family. When you have the lack of ability to explain all that happened in those two weeks, show them this. Stand tall and wear the last two weeks on your chest.”

“I haven’t found a way to explain it with any words I know,” the Marine admitted.

“Many of us joined because we liked fighting and were good with adversity and conflict,” Markland reportedly wrote. “Two weeks in Kabul at HKIA put all of that to the test. I can’t say enough how proud I am of the Marines I serve with.”

“Odds were stacked against us. Circumstances undeniably out of our control, but we never let it deter our tenacious approach towards our mission at hand. Adversity and challenges happened 24/7,” Markland said.

The Marine noted that “almost all had no predesignated plan.”

“We did our absolute best and remained stoic through the sleepless nights and round-the-clock work with minimal food and water,” he continued. “Staying up for two or more days straight at a time grinding but remaining intensely vigilant.”

The Blaze writes of the footage, “Markland’s video paints a far more shambolic Kabul exit than the sanitized photos and videos provided by the Department of Defense.”

The Blaze continues and details the footage:

The Afghans are densely packed into small areas with barbed wire fences at the borders of the holding area outside the Kabul airport. Marines shoot crowd munitions to attempt to calm the frantic masses. When crowd munitions aren’t effective, Marines are seen firing off warning shots from their firearms in an attempt to control the large crowds.

Babies are seen being handed to the Marines for safety. Lacking medical equipment, wounded people are taken to get treatment on a ladder. Men and women are seen bursting into tears. In one clip, a man in civilian clothes bashes another person with the stock of his AK-47.

Despite the sheer inhumanity of the bedlam, there are moments of hopeful humanity as Marines give fist bumps to smiling Afghans.

Marines bond in a circle as the song “Halftime” by Nas blares in the background. They pass around the camera, make silly faces, throw a pineapple at each other, and enjoy friendly bicycle races.
