Ilhan Omar traveled with anti-US group that supports Cuban, Venezuelan socialism, wants US to return Gitmo to Cuba
The Minnesota Democrat was accused of anti-Semitism after asserting that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a bipartisan group, was buying lawmakers.
She also grabbed headlines after first accusing the U.S. government of leading a coup against Venezuelan socialist tyrant Nicolas Maduro and then attempting to grill Elliott Abrams, the Trump administration’s new special envoy for Venezuela.
Now it was revealed that she once traveled to Honduras with an organization called Witness for Peace, a group formed during the Reagan administration that opposed America’s actions in South America aimed at stopping the spread of communism.
After traveling to Honduras as part of the Witness for Peace delegation, I’ve returned home with a heavy heart and deep concern for the electoral process and human rights crisis the people of Honduras are enduring.7612:44 PM – Nov 30, 2017Twitter Ads info and privacy148 people are talking about this
“After traveling to Honduras as part of the Witness for Peace delegation, I’ve returned home with a heavy heart and deep concern for the electoral process and human rights crisis the people of Honduras are enduring,” Omar tweeted in 2017.
Shortly after the trip with the group, she began opposing U.S. military aid to Honduras and publicly called for the suspension of the funding.
Omar’s association with Witness for Peace may prompt more scrutiny of her suitability to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee as the Witness for Peace organization and its leaders have supported the socialist regimes of Cuba and Venezuela and come out against the Jewish state, the Washington Free Beacon first revealed.
The group openly calls for the return of the “illegally occupied Guantanamo Naval Base to the Cuban people! And have organized travel delegations to Cuba, while calling Trump’s tougher policy towards the country as “the old unjust, counterproductive Cold War posture of past decades.”
The bottom line here speaks volumes on what happens when Muslims are allowed into this country. Enclaves develop, for instance Minnesota and Michigan, they create critical mass. This allows anti-Jew and anti-American representatives to get a seat in Congress. Look out America, Christian targets are next on their hit list.
