First Somali Muslim state legislator in U.S. votes against bill to deny insurance to terrorists who kill Americans

Source: Life insurance for terrorists? America’s 1st Somali legislator says ‘yes’

by Leo Hohmann

She burst on the scene last August when she upset a 44-year incumbent Democrat in the Minnesota state primary elections to become the nation’s first female Muslim state legislator.

Ilhan Omar, the 34-year-old community organizer who came to America as a refugee from Somalia, was touted by Democrats as a model success story.

But on Thursday Omar made her mark in another way.

She was one of only two members of the Minnesota State House to vote against a bill that would allow life insurance companies to deny payouts to the beneficiaries of terrorists who die in violent attacks on Americans.

The House voted 127-2 to pass the bill, which now moves on to a vote in the State Senate.

Omar, who represents the heavily immigrant Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis, was joined by fellow Democratic Rep. John Lesch of St. Paul in voting against the bill.

Omar’s vote sticks out because at least 42 Somali refugees have been confirmed by the FBI to have left the U.S. to join overseas terrorist organizations, including al-Shabab, the al-Qaida affiliate in Somalia, and ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Dozens of other Somali-Americans have been tried and/or convicted of providing material support to overseas terrorists.

The Minnesota insurance bill was introduced by Rep. Joe Hoppe, R-Chaska, in response to Syed Farook’s jihadist rampage in San Bernardino, California, in December 2015 in which he shot and killed 14 people and injured 22 at an office Christmas party. Farook made sure his life insurance policies worth $275,000 were valid before conducting the deadly shooting with help from his wife, Tashfeen Malik.

After Farook died in a shootout with police, his mother fought to remain the beneficiary of the life insurance policies. The insurance company balked and the case has gone to court.

Democratic Rep. Debra Hilstrom said the goal of the Minnesota bill “is to make certain that folks don’t benefit [from terrorism] and this limits the beneficiary to the premiums that were paid in. It limits the exposure for the insurance company when someone is committing an act of terrorism.”

Debra Anderson, leader of the ACT For America chapter in Minnesota, praised the legislators who voted for the bill Thursday.

“Rep. Ilan Omar’s vote today clearly demonstrated her allegiance to the best interests of the jihadists’ families, like in Palestine, rather than acting on the behalf of the victims of terrorists,” she said. “Disturbing to say the least.”

“This incident also clearly demonstrated the legitimate concerns of freedom-loving Americans regarding increased political access by Muslims who exhibit an obvious allegiance to Muslims and Shariah law rather than all Americans and the U.S. Constitution.

“I am very grateful for the astute, courageous legislators who are looking out for the best interests of all Minnesotans.”

If passed by the Senate and signed into law by Minnesota’s Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton, the law would apply to all current and future life insurance contracts.

  1. More Reason why people who support Terrorists should not be allowed to hold any public office.
    All you have to do is look back to The Muslim Brotherhood to see their plan to take over The United States which is part of their plan to take over the entire world with Islam. They have infiltrated positions in our government. Building up and at all levels during the obama administration. The following are quotes from the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals for North America. The document was entered as evidence in the 2008 Holyland Terror Funding Trial. Federal investigators found the document in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.
    Page 4 of 18: “Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.”
    Page 5 of 18: “…the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out [sic] this grand mission as a ‘Civilization Jihadist’ responsibility.”
    Page 7 of 18: “The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
    “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’”
    Page 18 of 18: “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends” – This is where the Muslim Brotherhood listed its front groups in the U.S.. Note that prominent organizations like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA and others are named here.

  2. Ilhan Omar, the 34-year-old “community organizer”. OH GEESH!!! Where, oh where, have I ever heard those two words before??? Hey, Ilhan, here are two more highly descriptive words for you, that you really should have no problem adding to your repertoire–“lyin’ b’tch”!!!!!

  3. It’s been reported she married her brother, as the picture shows sworn in on the Koran, is that not sedition or upfront treason? What special kind of stupid allows for a Muslim to be sworn in on the Koran when its total belief system is to destroy our nation. Putting the enemy in place, Islam is doing so by our own laws against us.

  4. Terrorists get perks in Europe too. Our world has surely gone insane. Thank the Lord this woman can’t run for President, cuz if she could it would be the goal of the Left to put her in POTUS seat!

  5. Article I section 1. All legislative powers. Section 8. To provide for calling forth the militia to excute the Laws of the Union, suppress insurrection and repel invasions: When anyone takes the oath to the constitution! It is the supreme law of the land! People learn the us constitution! These people are takeing oaths to their religion over the constituion! This is why Muslims & others want people to be ignorance to the constitution! Don’t be played with…Ever been to a college campus & tried to pass out free copies of the us constitution? Their are people who will tell you that is agaisnst campus policies. Campus policies do not Trump the constitution! Pass them out.

  6. Since she sworn on the quran, her oath is null and void. When oh when will Americans wake the hell up.

  8. “Religious” supplicants who hold allegiance to the foreign potentate of Islam, have forfeited their citizenship and are to be expelled as denaturalized undesirables.

    • Because Islam IS A GOVERNMENT/State, our own government CAN do exactly as you proposed. Surely the people at the top KNOW Islam isn’t just a religion. This is the message I have been working on getting out to non Muslims that I communicate with on YouTube and Facebook. It’s the only chance we have to stop the Islamisation of our Nation.
