Trump On Congresswoman IIhan Omar and Saudi Khashoggi Murder

Updated on February 13, 2019

Should a member on the Foreign Relations committee that impacts Israel remain there after making biased and prejudicial anti-Jew comments? Can POTUS ignore laws made to check the Executive Branch?

These are two questions many are asking themselves.

The Omar Situation

If you read Ms. Omar’s bio, you can see how as she grew up how her own experiences shaped her in today’s woman. Her family fled the Somalia Civil War in 1991 and ended up in a refugee camp for four years in Kenya, Africa. She was 10 years old then. She was raised by her father and grandfather. She arrived in the USA in 1995 (age 14). Her dad worked as a taxi driver. At 17, she became a USC. While in high school, she was bullied for wearing the hijab. In 2011, she graduated from college and began her career in Minnesota political circles. In 2018, she was accused of violating campaign laws by using them for personal use to pay a divorce lawyer, for taking money for speaking engagements, and using funds for airline tickets. She offered to return the money on some of the charges. She then responded like this:

"We recognize how these folks are deeply invested in stopping a progressive, Black, Muslim, hijab-wearing, immigrant woman... We know these people are part of systems that have historically been disturbingly motivated to silence, discredit and dehumanize influencers who threaten the establishment.”

Today, she supports abolishing ICE, sanctuary cities, healthcare for all and opposes the border security Trump wants. But even before the anti-Jewish comments that the Democrats reprimanded her for, she was anti-Israeli while in Minnesota. This was a movement to boycott all things Israeli. She supports a Middle East settlement with two states between the Palestinians and Israel. In 2012, she tweeted:

“Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel”.

Today, her comments implied that money spent by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was the primary motivation for American politicians to hold pro-Israel positions. There is no proof this statement is true or not, but this and other comments from her past persuasively show she has a anti-Israeli prejudice. There is no doubt a militant view exists within her against Israel. This has developed during her life as she grew up. Her position on Venezuela demonstrates her bias against America. Omar condemned the Trump administration's decision to recognize Juan Guaidó as the president of Venezuela and other US actions. She said that this was a "U.S. backed coup in Venezuela" and that Guaidó was part of the "far-right opposition".

The Republicans and Trump asked for her removal from the Foreign Relations Committee because her past and recent comments indicate, at minimum, a bias against and prejudice against Israel in general and even more when it comes to the Palestinian-Israeli solution. She is definitely far left in agenda and opposes most things POTUS supports. Of course, one could say that other members on the this committee are biased towards Israel being the only democracy in the Middle East. If this is the case, then her minority voice will be ignored, if it is not the case, the opposite might occur.

The Khashoggi Affair

The facts are all in since the Saudi Prince ordered the murder of this man for his dissenting views of Saudi Arabia. The various official reports all indicate that In October, 2018, the Saudi hit squad lured the man into a Turkish Embassy and murdered him and then cut up his body and carried it out in trash bags to dispose of.

POTUS has refused to officially blame the Saudis because of the military arms deal made prior to the event. But do you really think that is all? Is it not possible that the Trump organization has real estate interests there, whether pending contracts, or planned Trump Towers?

The Saudis are important because of its location and because they offer American military bases close to Iran. But, POTUS has broken US law by not releasing their findings and decision within the 120 day period. They say more time is needed for the facts! How about the FBI, CIA, reports that all state the Crown Prince ordered the hit on him and Saudi claims they knew nothing about the murder are lies to persuade public opinion. Why Is Trump not sanctioning Saudi Arabia?

      While the gvt was shut down, Congress enacted the “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act.”

      “The bill is part of a disturbing surge of government-led attempts to suppress the speech of people on only one side of the Israel-Palestine debate. The trend manifests on college campuses, in state contracts, and even in bills to change federal criminal law, but the impact is the same: Those who seek to protest, boycott, or otherwise criticize the Israeli government are being silenced.”

      As happened to me here, on hp. This is out of the ordinary, and dangerous. No other country comes before our 1st amendment like this. I’d like to know why.

      America has always stood by Israel but in End Times this will not be so, in any case, the US has supported many Muslim countries. But, the US is pro-Israel just like pro-Saudi, pro Turkish and so on.

      Ok, but she apologized, and said she is learning how her words were hurtful. Neither Trump, King, or McCarthy have done the same.

      And I would say the whole of our gvt is biased in favor of Israel, and I don’t consider that fair.

      Muslims have the right to question our favoritism towards Israel, particularly the Palestine issue.

      And guess what? It’s no longer allowed.

      None of the politicians, whether white, green, brown, black, red, should be trusted only with a grain of salt. My point is that even our representatives come to the office with bias and prejudice based upon their own life experiences up to that point. Omar should not be trusted as being unbiased towards Israel.

      Nothing you said about her is as bad as Trump, and he’s prez.

      Palestinians are people and have rights, too. As do immigrants. And many others feel it is a right wing coup in Venezuela.....a white supremacy movement worldwide.

      I think some of you need to move into the new world order.....everything has changed. Nothing is as is was, nor ever will be.

      We have moved beyond what daddy white man says is true. None of them are to be trusted. Ever.
