Minnesota-Somali Muslim Legislator, Ilhan Omar was elected to be a State Representative for District 60B November 8, 2016 and she just took her oath on a giant Quran.
Omar is a refugee who came to the U.S. when she was 12 years old.
Asad Zaman who is the Executive Director for Muslim American Society of Minnesota said:
The Muslim community needs a win. The ethos of America that can embrace a Somali American, Hijab clad woman as their representative…I think that says something amazing about America.
The Muslim community needs a win? Really? We don’t want anymore terrorist attacks, Asad. And no, a Hijab clad woman doesn’t represent us as Americans. The Hijab represents a commitment to Sharia Law and we as Americans abide by the Constitution which is the law of the land.
A lawmaker taking an oath on a Quran is egregious. Sharia law must be completely banned in every State in the U.S.

And as reported earlier on TGP – Ilhan is married to her brother.
Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.
The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan is married to her brother.
Power Line reported:
A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website here.
The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”
She’ll make a good Democrat. Read the rest here.
