    Among the historic victories in this midterm election, Democrat Ilhan Omar triumphed in Minnesota’s 5th District with 78 percent of the vote. Omar will be the first Somali-American and first woman of color from Minnesota in the House, as well as one of two Muslim women elected to Congress. Omar joins "CBS This Morning" from Minneapolis to discuss how she plans to be a check to a rhetoric of fear and destruction in Washington.

Dear all Somalis, be careful not to incite radical nationalists , I congratulate Ilhan, but I am afraid that when this goes on and look Deeqa wining South Portland city council seat this week. When it goes on like that I am afraid this will incite the extreme white nationalists of the US and elsewhere saying f***ing Somalis who could not take care of their homeland are now gona taking our land. Remember what they say (WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND) I would Advise you to build your own mother country first. Just look what Somaliland Diaspora are doing taking care of their home land.

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, a Muslim immigrant from Somalia and a newly elected U.S. representative, is facing backlash for her inconsistent stance on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel. In a statement to the Muslim Girl blog days after the midterm election, her campaign made it clear that the congresswoman-elect supports the movement. “The statement marked a stark reversal from Omar’s previous position on BDS. Prior to the election, Omar told Minnesota Jews that she was opposed to the boycott movement.” “I think that the particular purpose for it is to put pressure, and I think that that pressure is really counteractive,” she said at the time. “Because in order for us to have a process to getting to a two-state solution, people need to be willing to come to the table.” Omar went on to say that the BDS campaign “stops that dialogue” and is “not helpful in getting that two-state solution.” As Forward reported, the editor of a Jewish news site contacted Omar to discuss the confusion surrounding her position. “My position has always been the same,” she claimed. "In America sometimes you have to say certain things to get elected." Are you concerned about Omar's stance on Israel? The soon-to-be lawmaker expounded on her pro-Palestinian views during her interview with Muslim Girl. “For me, that particular issue really is about making sure that we are people who understand that there is oppression happening, and speak to that as you would for issues that are safe,” she said. "Israel never had a right to the land they now occupy. We as muslims must use whatever course is open to us to further Palestinian right to take back their land." Omar has also received criticism for her antisemitism expressed in tweets from 2012.

what we all need to ask is can this muslim women abide by and stand on our laws of the land.What has me a little concerned is she had a faith-based divorce in 2011 based on sharia law as a citizen of the usa.And voted down a bill that would not allow families to collect life insurance if a family member died as a result of terror based violence against americans.Why would she do that if she is committed to putting american lives first?..Is she ..Are going to enforce sharia law?..Are u americans willing to fall under sharia law?.And as a citizen of solmalia for 11 years non muslims and christians were second class citizens subject to grave abuses.Is this what she wants in our country as well..There are so many questions one needs answered to elect a muslim refugee from somolia.

According to Islamic teaching, Muhammad founded Islam in 610 CE after the angel Gabriel appeared to him at Mecca and told him that God had entered him among the ranks of such great biblical prophets as Abraham, Moses, and Christ. Surah An-Nisa [4:171] O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. The Quran..written some 500 years...AFTER the Holy Bible ..if Mohammed was told by "Gabriel", he was a prophet and that alah is the only God... KJV Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom areall things, and we by him.

While myself i have never been a refugee. My family has always provided me whatever i needed. Iam s second generation my father also went to schhol here in United states as far as i can remember we always had refugees. And alot of them enriched our lives. They worked hard, two of those refugees went on to become presidents kagame of rwanda and kabila of congo. This young woman was in a kenyan refugee camp while myself iam ugandan i have spent alot of time in kenya and some of my cousins went to school there. Iam not going to preach to americans about how they should run their country. My experiance living here has been fantastic.

ROCKYZ ROCKYX ROCKYZ ROCKYX before Islam Arabia was pagan and used to wage war on each other, when Islam came they United the people and brought down the word the prophets to them Moses and Abraham, according to Jews Muslims worship the same god they do but Christians are pagans, the crusaders prosecuted the Jews and when the Muslims came they where happy, millions of people have been killed in name of Christianity. Islam is the religion of Moses and the prophets if you read the Torah and compare it to the Bible it would be very similar, and according to the Bible to be a false prophet means prophesying false Mohammed (pbuh) has not done so. You say Allah is a moon god because you don’t understand how Semitic languages work. Hebrew=Elohim Aramaic=Allaha Arabic= Allah Jesus spoke Aramaic he prayed to Allaha when he was on the cross he cried out (Elah Elah lama sabachthani) matthew 27
