(Natural News) The anti-Semitism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is well known and well-documented. This Somali-born U.S. congresswoman has demonstrated an open hostility towards Israel since she entered public life.
Not only that, but in 2016 she wrote to a state judge in Minnesota on behalf of Abdirahman Yasin Daud, who was one of two young men arrested in San Diego in 2015, but were members of a larger group attempting to join ISIS. At the time Daud was attempting to join ISIS, the U.S. was already involved there militarily in an effort to help defeat ISIS forces.
She urged Davis to show the men “compassion” and employ a “restorative approach to justice” — to potential ISIS terrorists.
Another report in July noted that Omar’s Somali community in Minnesota sends upwards of $100 million per year back to their homeland, which benefits a known terrorist organization Boko Haram.
And there was that time when, as a U.S. representative in June of this year, she laid the blame on the United States for attacks on Iranian tankers in the Persian Gulf.
Yes, that Iran — the country that has vowed to obtain nuclear weapons so it can wipe out Israel and threaten Americans.
Speaking of Iran, in fact, there are new accusations that Omar may actually be a paid asset for the nation of Qatar, to the benefit of the Iranians.
Alan Bender, a Kuwaiti-born Canadian businessman, made those accusations in video testiomny October 23 from Toronto in regards to a civil case filed in Florida against Sheikh Khalid bin Hamed al-Thani, the Qatari emir, over allegations he ordered his American bodyguard to murder two people while holding an American paramedic hostage.
Al-Arabiya reported further:
US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was recruited by a foreign government, passed sensitive information that was relayed to Iran, and received funding by a foreign government, according to a sworn deposition by a Canadian businessman in a Florida court.
Kuwaiti-born Alan Bender claims to have deep ties with governments and royal officials across the Middle East including Qatar. In his statement, he says he met Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari officials.
‘Jewel of the crown’
The three have also taken credit for Omar’s quick rise in American politics.
“If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends,” Bender said in sworn testimony.
The news outlet claimed that it obtained a record of Bender’s testimony and that it was validated by the plaintiff’s attorney.
During testimony, Bender said he was asked to recruit American politicians and journalists as Qatari government assets. He further states that he objected to the request and that Qatari officials summarily responded by saying that a number of American politicians and media types were already on Qatar’s payroll — the most prominent of them Omar.
The deposition described her as the “jewel of the crown,” in fact.
This comes on the heels of reports in U.S. media alleging that Omar has violated American campaign finance laws. The Minnesota Campaign Finance Board found in June that she violated state laws after she improperly used campaign money for out-of-state travel while serving as a state lawmaker.
In recent weeks, government watchdog group Judicial Watch has called on the House Ethics Committee to launch an investigation into Omar over alleged immigration fraud — marrying her brother in order to obtain residency papers.

Also, the New York Post reported that Omar paid $150,000 to a political consultant group where someone she has been romantically linked to, Tim Mynett, is a partner.
As for Iran, Bender says she used her U.S. congressional position to obtain sensitive information for Iran, via Qatar.
If true, let’s hope U.S. intelligence officials are on it.
