Omar responds to family of 9/11 victim who called her out at anniversary ceremony

Omar responds to family of 9/11 victim who called her out at anniversary ceremony Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Sunday responded to a family member of a 9/11 victim who called her out on the anniversary of the attacks, saying she intended to highlight civil rights violations. "9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel," Omar said on CBS's "Face the Nation.

Rep. Ilhan Omar is in hot water for her comments on 9 / 11 . Here's what we know about the remarks and how they ended up on the cover of the New York Post. Omar was speaking at a dinner last month for the Council of American-Islamic Relations in California, one week after the attacks targeting two

During Wednesday's 9/11 Memorial and Museum ceremony in New York to honor the lives lost 18 years ago, one victim's family member had a message for freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Nicholas Haros Jr., whose mother Frances Haros was killed in the World Trade Center at age 76, wore a black T-shirt with the words "Some people did something" as he read a list of victims' names, including his mother's.

"Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom. Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done," Haros Jr. said on Wednesday. "There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?"

Haros Jr.'s comments are a reference to a controversial statement made by the Minnesota representative, who said while speaking about the Muslim community's resilience in the face of discrimination that "[Council of American-Islamic Relations] was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties."

Ilhan Omar ’s reference to the 9 / 11 terrorist attacks continued to boil on the political talk shows on Sunday. Omar said many Muslims feared such a tragedy was coming, because they have heard threats at their mosques and in their schools or have witnessed acts of violence targeting Muslims.

From candle vigils to permanent memorials, take a look at how Americans have remembered the victims in the years following.

Omar's comments sparked instant outrage by conservatives who accused her of belittling the historic tragedy. Others argued her comments were being taken out of context to unfairly attack her.

President Donald Trump came after Omar hard for her comments, posting a video on Twitter of 9/11 footage juxtaposed with Omar's comments.

"On that day, 19 Islamic terrorist members of al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars in economic damage. Is that clear?" Haros Jr. said.

He continued, "But as to whom, I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked. Our constitutional freedoms were attacked. And our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked. That’s what some people did. Got that now?"

"We are here today, congresswoman, to tell you and the squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please. American patriotism and your position demand it. For God and country, amen," Haros Jr. said.

Last year while reading names at the Sept. 11 commemoration, Haros Jr. asked politicians to "stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater."

House Democrats finding it hard to confront anti-Semitism.
if Rep. Ilhan Omar had better facts on her side, she wouldn't be in this mess. For instance, Omar seems to think the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is a political action committee that funds candidates on behalf of Israel. Inconveniently for Omar, AIPAC isn't a PAC, doesn't work for Israel and doesn't donate to political campaigns. More interesting, however, is the Democratic leadership's fact problem -- namely the fact Omar simply isn't a fan of Jews, or at least Jews who support Israel. It's fine to be a critic of Israel, by the way.
