Ilhan Omar 'Qatari Asset,' Florida Court hears
[Jpost] Ilhan Omar was recruited by a foreign government, received funding from a foreign government, and passed sensitive information through intermediates to Iran, a Florida court has been told.

The claims came during testimony by Kuwati-born Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was giving evidence in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani. The Qatari emir's brother stands accused of ordering his American bodyguard to murder two people, and of holding an American citizen hostage. His deposition, obtained by Al Arabiya English, was authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs, according to the publication.

Speaking from Toronto by video link, Bender told the Florida District Court that he met with Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari officials.

According to his sworn deposition, the three officials told him: “If it wasn't for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends."
Not possible. The lady has a masters degree in... something. She’d be waiting tables at least five days a week.
Bender testified that the officials asked him to recruit American politicians and journalists as Qatari assets, and that when he objected, was told that several prominent figures were already on the payroll. US Congresswoman Omar was described as the "jewel in the crown," he said.
...in the turban, surely.
Qatar “recruited Ilhan Omar from even way before she thought about becoming a government official. […] They groomed her and arranged the foundation, the grounds, for her to get into politics way before she even showed interest. They convinced her,” he added.

The deposition shows he further told the court that, during a 2017 meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Omar swore allegiance to him.
Swore allegiance as what? Sultan of the caliphate? President of Turkey? Head of the Turkish branch of the Muslim Brotherhood?
At the time she was a junior state representative in Minnesota.

Omar was said to also have passed information to Qatar which was subsequently handed along to Iran, and was actively involved in recruiting other American politicians to likewise work for Qatar, Bender testified.
And what are their names, pray tell?
“The best thing money can buy are American officials because they are the cheapest of the cheapest costing officials in the world,” the Qatari officials were said to have told him.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Congresswoman Omar told The Jerusalem Post "Since the day she was elected, Saudi Arabian trolls and mouthpieces have targeted Rep. Omar with misinformation and conspiracy theories."

"The latest outlandishly absurd story from a Saudi-funded media outlet is of course false and only the latest in that trend," they said. "The only people Rep. Omar represents in Washington are the people of Minnesota’s 5th District. She will continue to speak out against human rights violations around the world—whether it is war crimes in Yemen or the caging of children at our border—regardless of who commits them."

Omar has already been found by the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board to have broken campaign finance rules, by improperly using campaign money for out-of-state travel while a state representative. Conservative group Judicial Watch has also called on the House Ethics Committee to investigate Omar for alleged offenses, including immigration fraud. But these claims go much further.

Omar was one of 107 House Democrats who co-signed a letter Thursday, calling on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to reverse his announcement on the legality of West Bank settlements. The signatories claimed such a move "severely damaged prospects for peace" in the region.
“No,” quoth the honourable Secretary Pompeo. “Never more.”

Surely all of this was somewhere on the FBI' radar.

#2 The brilliance of jihad is that not all participants need to be sworn members of a circle, or report to some shadowy figure. All you have to do is work the host nation's legislature to its own detriment, destabilize their law, health, public admin, etc. any way you can. You report to Allan.

Between Tlaib and Omar, I've always suspected Omar of being a plant of some sort. If not a plant, a champion of the jihad. Tlaib you can say is batshit crazy, because she always was. There was nobody writing her script.

But this one. She rose from a gradually coordinated, concerted campaign of employed and even moneyed immigrants embedded within her district. The most refugees to successfully exodus from a war torn state with their money are often undocumented fighters or middle rung regime enforcers. I don't know what story her father gave the officials. Then her mother was from the coastal based Haji Husein clan with ties to militants and pirates. Young Ilhan insinuated her way into the democratic farmer labour groups, and kept her scams going with young Somalian men she kept smuggling into the US even with the WOT raging in Africa.

There was never a peep from the bitch whenever an act of atrocity was heard of from Al Shabab. It has always been 'America the devil, islamophopia, my people, my culture,
israel should die', ad nauseam. She's unapologetic, wears her islam proudly, even some somalis in her district fear her and she repeatedly makes statements that must inspire her kind across the oceans. They see her, and they think 'Not far now... the great satan is almost bridled'.

We've seen this pattern in Asia and Europe for decades now. They are a very private bunch, seemingly unconnected too, like a hive mind in their plodding approach. They chip away at the State, the constitution, populating a region with malcontents and muscle from across borders, and rise to offices on swollen constituencies by intimidating and guilt tripping people.

Maybe for those few FBI officials not otherwise preoccupied with plotting the overthrow of OrangeMan.

Not "never again"?

#7 >pulating a region with malcontents and muscle from across borders

another reason (besides economic) it's important to filter migrants for quality (simplest way is to ensure they'll earn above average).

#8 Blanket ban on muslims would be smartest. Muslim ? No visa, FOAD ! In fact an indefinite moratorium on all immigration won't be so bad either.

A prosperous nation is somehow considered an unending font of freebies for every shitholian who otherwise hates whites but cannot wait to leech them. They are like :

"It is our right to come in ! Why aren't you letting us in ?"

I did go to my room after typing that, but it desperately needed to be said.

Well, yes. Our politicians have a disturbing tendency to prostitute themselves for two bits.
