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

Published

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.

    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.

Lawmakers Push Biden Not To Reenter Iran Nuclear Deal

“We write to urge you to immediately withdraw from the fruitless Vienna talks to re-enter the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action”

Published

Iran

On Wednesday, 110 House Republican lawmakers signed a letter urging President Joe Biden (D) to abandon negotiations with Iran as the Biden administration tries to get Iran to reenter the 2015 Iran nuclear deal – also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“We write to urge you to immediately withdraw from the fruitless Vienna talks to re-enter the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and instead strongly enforce existing sanctions against Iran, particularly with respect to the oil trade between Iran and the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Further delay of action on this only further enables Iran’s malign activities, including their aggressive nuclear pursuits,” the lawmakers, led by House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul, wrote.

“The letter is a sign that Republicans are united against reentering the 2015 accord,” The Free Beacon reported. “It also comes as negotiations with Tehran drag into a second year, with the Iranian regime demanding further concessions from the Biden administration, including the full reversal of sanctions on the country’s nuclear program and regional terrorism enterprise.”

“As diplomatic talks resume after months of delays, Iran has greatly expanded its nuclear program, including its enrichment of uranium, a main component in an atomic weapon,” the outlet added. “Iran is now enriching and stockpiling highly enriched uranium, which can only [be] used for a bomb. This work has continued in the face of ongoing sanctions and opposition from the international community. Senior Biden administration officials have acknowledged in recent weeks that Iran is stalling negotiations while it advances its nuclear program.”

The 2015 Iran nuclear deal was widely criticized as Iran used the funds acquired from the deal, which was estimated to be between $100 to $150 billion, to fund terrorist organizations in the Middle East. Iran also reportedly violated the deal after it was passed.

In 2019, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, revealed that JCPOA negotiations had mandated that Iran destroy parts of their nuclear reactors by filling them with cement. However, Iran secretly acquired replacement parts so that the functionality of those reactors would not be ultimately affected. Salehi also said that pictures of reactors filled with cement had been photoshopped.

“A nuclear agreement with Iran is again on the table, but history has taught us that agreements like this with extremist regimes are worth as much as garlic peel,” former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned earlier this year. “To our best friends I say – an agreement with Iran which paves its way to nuclear weapons that threaten us with destruction – an agreement like this will not bind us.”

Thousands of Afghan Allies And Their Families Still Stranded In Afghanistan

Thousands of Afghans who helped the United States government and military are still stranded in the Taliban-controlled country, according to a new report from the New York Post.

“The non-profit volunteer organization No One Left Behind says that it is tracking more than 10,000 Afghans who are either eligible for, applied for, or were approved for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) and have requested help getting out of Taliban-controlled territory,” the New York Post reported. “No One Left Behind also said that it is tracking another 38,000 family members of SIV holders or applicants who remain in Afghanistan and have asked for aid.”

“This is likely a limited picture with more that have not reached out to us, but it underscores the significant volume of people in dire need as winter approaches and Taliban control result[s] in food shortages and human rights abuses, including directly targeting those that helped US forces,” a director at No One Left Behind told the New York Post.

“We are working tirelessly to make sure these people are not left behind, and we will continue to advocate to the [US Government] that they expand the scope of their evacuations to include these American allies,” the director added.

According to the New York Post, Task Force Argo co-founder Jesse Jensen said that his organization is “dealing with a backlog of more than 4,000 people, including family members, who are looking to leave Afghanistan.”

Jensen, a former Army Ranger, stated that that the number of Afghans who want to leave the country is likely far above 4,000 since Task Force Argo had to stop accepting evacuation requests.

“We have really run out of resources in order to do this,” Jensen said. “We’ve had three flights that are paid for, you know we’ll likely have to claw back those funds to return to investors if we don’t see a path to getting these folks out of the country.”

The report comes just the Biden administration admitted that it left hundreds more Americans stranded in Afghanistan after the withdrawal than it previously claimed.

“[W]e believe that about 100 to 200 Americans remain in Afghanistan with some intention to leave,” President Biden said on August 31. “Most of those who remain are dual citizens, long-time residents who had earlier decided to stay because of their family roots in Afghanistan.”

However, since August 31, “the United States has directly assisted 479 American Citizens and 450 lawful permanent residents [in addition to their immediate families] to depart Afghanistan and relocate to the United States,” the State Department admitted in a press release.

According to the State Department, there are less than a dozen U.S. citizens left in Afghanistan who want to leave the terrorist-controlled country, are ready to depart, and have the necessary travel documents.

Last month, a report found that there were still 14,000 U.S. legal permanent residents stranded in Afghanistan at the time and at least 289 U.S. citizens.
Foreign Policy 
reported, “The State Department believes as many as 14,000 U.S. legal permanent residents remain in Afghanistan, Foreign Policy has learned, as the agency faces increasing scrutiny from Congress about the status of U.S. citizens and green card holders that are still stranded in the Taliban-controlled country.”
