Jihad Watch : U.S Rep. Ilhan Omar presents herself as a practicing Muslim — she
wears a head-covering out of religious conviction, talks proudly of her
Muslim heritage, speaks at fundraisers for the Muslim Brotherhood front
group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and often seems to
take the side of Islamic regimes over against U.S. interests.
she has praised her native Somalia, defended Hamas leadership over its
rocket attacks on Israel and sided with the mullahs of Iran over against
the present foreign policy actions of the United States.)
Yet, at the same time, she wishes to be seen as a progressive
Democrat. So she stands as a proud feminist even though Islam as a
worldwide movement is the greatest oppressor of women ever to control
human behavior patterns. She claims to be a staunch supporter of LGBTQ
rights, even though Shari’a law commands that those declared guilty of
homosexual behavior must be executed — this is based on three passages
in the Qur’an (7.80-84; 26.165-166, and 4.16) and numerous Hadith
traditions such as this one from Sunan Abu Dawud 4462:
The Messenger of Allah said, “Whoever you find doing the action of
the people of Loot [Lot] (i.e., the people of Sodom), execute the one
who does it and the one to whom it is done.”
The conflict between settled Islamic law and Western leftist values
is inescapable, but it is nonetheless ignored by both Muslim and secular
progressives alike so they may harmoniously band together to destroy a
larger, common enemy: traditional Western culture founded upon a
biblical worldview and ethic.
Hence, Ilhan Omar and so many others are
able to live a lie without batting an eyelash or being challenged in
their hypocrisy.Omar’s past life is coming under increasing scrutiny as she dwells in the public spotlight. One area of special interest is her marriage history.
She has been married and divorced two times, is married once again but apparently has recently filed for divorce a third time. In our present culture this is not all that unusual, sadly, but it is even more acceptable in Muslim circles since marriage is treated solely as a legal contract, not as the lifelong partnership/covenant envisioned in the Bible.
What is a bit surprising, however, is the freedom Omar has had in initiating her divorces. Under Islamic law the husband can procure a divorce instantly for almost any reason, but the wife is extremely limited in her capacity to seek legal exit from the marriage.
