You won’t believe what Ilhan Omar said she was disgusted by
Ilhan Omar may have just hit rock bottom.
The freshman Congresswoman with a nose for controversy made an unbelievable confession about Islam.
And you won’t believe what Ilhan Omar said she was disgusted by.
Omar erupted in fury during a question-and-answer session at an event for the Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy.
That’s because an audience member asked her to condemn the Islamic fundamentalist practice of female genital mutilation.
Omar claimed it was outrageous to ask Muslims to denounce the practice.
Omar was reportedly taking questions an event for the Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy event when Muslim audience member Ani Osman-Zonneveld of Muslims for Progressive Values asked Omar to condemn FGM.
Omar said she was “disgusted” by people who ask Muslim politicians specific questions on issues and groups embraced by extreme members of their religion – such as FGM, al-Qaeda, and Hamas – and called it a “waste” of time.
“I am, I think, quite disgusted I think to be honest that as Muslim legislators, we are constantly being asked to waste our time speaking to issues that other people are not asked to speak to because of the assumption exist that we somehow support and are for [the issue],” Omar said, according to BuzzFeed News.
She urged audience members to think twice before asking Muslim lawmakers questions, pressing them to ensure that it is a “proper question that they would probably ask any member of Congress, any legislator, [or] any politician.”
Female genital mutilation can be added to the list of things Ilhan Omar will not condemn.
Recently she refused to condemn Al Qaeda.
She has referred to 9/11 as “some people did something.”
And now she won’t condemn the Islamic fundamentalist practice of female genital mutilation.
