Photos Surface Showing ‘Closed-Door’ Meeting Between Rep. Ilhan Omar and President Erdogan

 Reporter Jordan Schachtel recently came upon an interesting tidbit in the Tusmo Times, a publication that covers the Somali community in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, area.

Pjmedia.com reports: He found a story there by the Somali-language paper’s founder and editor, Abdirahman Mukhtar, about a “closed-door meeting” that took place in New York City in September 2017 between visiting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a then-relatively unknown Minnesota state representative named Ilhan Omar.

 Omar, a Muslim immigrant from Somalia who won election to the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2018, reportedly led a delegation of Somalis from Minnesota to meet with Erdogan in New York. Erdogan was in town for the annual UN General Assembly meeting and Omar flew in to meet him at a local hotel in downtown New York City.

She even tweeted about the meeting in Somali:

 What is most interesting about this meeting, however, aside from the fact that the President of Turkey agreed to meet with a local Minnesota state legislator, is that it took place in the very same hotel room where Erdogan, either just before or just after his meeting with Omar, met with the assembled top leadership of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

 This is obvious from the room’s carpeting and table and chairs arrangement: here is Erdogan posing with Ilhan Omar.

 In this second photo with Erdogan are Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR); Osama Abu Irshaid, the national director of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP); Mazen Mokhtar, the national executive director of the Muslim American Society (MAS); and Oussama Jammal, the secretary general of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the umbrella political organization of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Whether Omar herself met with these leading Brotherhood figures in that room is not known, but it seems unlikely that she would not have.

 Now, it may be noted that this was not the first time that Omar and the Turkish regime connected. She traveled to Istanbul, Turkey, in early February 2017 to attend a conference organized by the local Turkish government and the British Embassy in Ankara billed as “Human Rights Defenders” that included hardcore leftists and pro-abortion activists. It is not known, however, whether Omar met with Erdogan or any of his senior officials on that trip.

 The story continues, however.

 The Islamic Association of North America (IANA), formerly known as The North American Council of Somali Imams (NACSI), is a large umbrella organization for the shariah-adherent Somali community of North America (U.S. and Canada). Headquartered on Hiawatha Avenue in the Minneapolis neighborhood often called “Little Mogadishu,” the IANA was founded in 2001 and today includes over 26 member mosques, Islamic centers, and other organizations. Among these are several located in Minnesota, including the Abu Huraira Mosque (Rochester), the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center (Minneapolis), the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center (Faribault), the Al-Ihsan Islamic Center (St. Paul) and the Dar-us-Salam Cultural Center (Burnsville).

 Now, the kicker: the IANA formally joined the USCMO, in effect, the U.S. branch of Erdogan’s pro-Muslim Brotherhood Justice and Development Party (AKP), in 2018—that is, just months after Ilhan Omar, state representative of Minnesota, met with Erdogan in New York—and about one year after her February 2017 trip to Istanbul. That Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) probably helped arrange that development seems hardly surprising now, in retrospect, as her close association with Brotherhood front groups like CAIR (the U.S. branch of the HAMAS terror organization) becomes as difficult to ignore as her blatant antisemitism.

 For example, Omar’s own online bio notes that she was a former Advisory Board member for Minnesota Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Then, on March 23, Omar was met with hundreds of protesters as she arrived at a Woodland Hills hotel in Southern California where she was the keynote speaker for a CAIR-Los Angeles fundraiser. Protesters there carried American and Israeli flags and shouted “Burn the Quran!,” “Ilhan Omar, go to hell!” and “Shame on you, terrorists!” At the event, Omar shared the podium with Hassan Shibly, executive director of CAIR-FL, who has made no secret of his animosity toward Israel and sympathy for HAMAS and Hizballah.

 Just a month earlier, on Feb. 23, Omar had headlined an event in Tampa, Florida, advertised as “An Emergency Benefit Dinner for Yemen,” which was sponsored by the terror-connected Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA), a past sponsor of USCMO events.

 Finally, although Omar has just run her first national-level congressional campaign, she already has racked up thousands of dollars in donations from an array of individuals with acknowledged Muslim Brotherhood front group connections, including CAIR, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA). AMP, CAIR and MAS are all founding members of the USCMO.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
