Full deposition naming Omar also names Sarsour and Kushner as Qatari assets

“We recruited both, Republicans and Democrats, but that’s not good enough. We want to rule the White House,” the Qataris allegedly said.

Explosive testimony given in a Florida court, naming Ilhan Omar as a Qatari asset, also implicated a number of other prominent American citizens, including political activist Linda Sarsour and senior advisor to United States President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner.

Yesterday, the Jerusalem Post reported on court testimony given by Canadian businessman Alan Bender in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani, who stands accused of ordering his American bodyguard to murder two people.

Bender told the court that Omar had been recruited by Qatar and had also pledged allegiance to Turkey’s President Erdogan. Speaking to the Post earlier today, Bender confirmed that the report was an accurate representation of what was said in court.

Now the Jerusalem Post can reveal:

– That, according to Bender, Qatar aimed to ‘take down’ Imam Tawhidi, known as the Imam of Peace, for his criticism of Omar, using their contacts in American newspapers to write smear stories that would lead to legal charges against the Imam.

– That Qatar’s alleged assets include politicians on both sides of the House, and journalists.

– And that Senior Advisor to the President of the United States Jared Kushner is also alleged to have taken money from Qatar.

In testimony given in the Florida court, a copy of which was sent to the Jerusalem Post, in which Bender said of Omar:

“They called her Sister Ilhan, which is a term you only use when you’re a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. So Abdullah al-Athbah, he refers to Ilhan Omar as Sister Ilhan, and Sister Linda, which is Linda Sarsour, another activist who is now going to run for Senate.

“Somebody recommended her to the Qataris. They had several names, several options to pick from, to appoint – ‘they call her winning the elections is an appointment.'”

Omar was chosen, Bender said, because her father had a history of carrying out “very violent interrogations,” as a high ranking officer in the Somalian army,” and they thought that would be very suitable because the more dirt you have on your candidate, the easier it is to control the candidate.”

She also had other perceived weaknesses. Bender said he questioned why a devout Muslim such as Omar would take bribes, only to be told, “don’t be fooled by her head scarf. She’s a sex maniac, and she’s very weak when it comes to money and sex. And we got both.”

The claims are being supported by London-based Kuwaiti activist Abdullah al-Saleh, who on Tuesday evening tweeted: “My name is Dr. Abdullah al-Saleh and I was the guest of the Qatari government and Prime Minister for 6 months. I learned of their operations in the West and can testify and confirm that everything Alan Bender said in his deposition regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar and Qatar is true.”

Mr al-Saleh, who has a following of 123,000 people on Twitter, sent the Posta photograph of himself posing with members of the Qatari royal family to support his claim.

Indeed, so “obedient” was Omar, according to Bender, that the Qataris “wanted to make sure that nobody can go after her reputation… and that’s how they brought up the name of Imam Tawhidi… A social activist who was exposing a lot of that.”

The Qataris, Bender said, asked “if I could arrange for a lawsuit against Tawhidi that it will allow Ilhan Omar to capitalize on and sue him for defamation of character.

“Their plan was to drum up information about Imam Tawhidi that are not true … and then turn it into a media report in one of the prominent newspapers in the US. And then that turns into a possible lawsuit, which they asked me if I’m willing to sponsor the legal action part.”

The Government of Qatar hired a NY based lawyer to demand that Twitter delete my tweets and suspend me for exposing their dirty deals in Congress and the mainstream media.

The following is my/my lawyer’s response to Twitter, read for yourselves and see how dodgy Qatar operates.

However, Omar was not the only prominent American named in the Bender testimony.

“They [the Qataris] said: ‘We recruited both, Republicans and Democrats, but that’s not good enough. We want to rule the White House.’ So they will,” he told the court.

Indeed, if Bender’s testimony is accurate, they are already close.

Explaining that Qatar uses western companies to effectively launder money they paid to American citizens, Bender cited a $1.4 billion payment which he claims was passed to Jared Kushner from Qatar, via a Canadian company named Brookfield, which they have invested heavily in.

Despite knowing that it was a failing investment, Qatar leaned on Brookfield to buy 666 Fifth Avenue from Kushner, to write off his debts.

“Why didn’t they pay Kusher directly?” the lawyer for the plaintiffs, Ms. Castenda, asked.

“Too risky,” Bender replied.

“Jared Kushner approached the government of Qatar for a bailout of 666 Fifth Avenue?” Castenda clarified.

“Correct. That’s what they told me. … And they did it. And Kushner is happy with them because, according to them, I don’t know Kushner personally, but the Qataris said Kushner told them: ‘Choose one of two. You pay what I tell you to pay, or I unleash my dogs.'”

“The dogs being who?” she asked.

“Saudi Arabia and the UAE,” Bender replied.

The Qataris were aware that as an investment the pay-off was a write-off, but told Bender, “‘We just paid it to pay off his debt. And as long as he’s in the White House, we have to do what he wants until we control the White House.’ We as in Qatar,” Bender clarified.

The Jerusalem Post has reached out to Mr Kushner’s office for a response. However, no comment has been received as of yet.

Among other claims made by Mr. Bender were that:

– The real power in Qatar is Mohammed Al-Masnad, known as ‘the CEO.’ “After a couple of hours, I was convinced that the Emir of Qatar does not run the show and Mohammed Al-Masnad is in charge of everything. He is also the Emir’s uncle. […] And the Emir’s mother is the real king of Qatar.”

– The second most powerful man in Qatar is a Palestinian, Azmi Bishara.

– That Jamal Khashoggi was set up by Qatar to be killed by the Saudis after he was found to have been “playing both sides.” “Jamal Khashoggi and Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal were very close friends,” Bender said. “[Khashoggi] would receive sensitive secrets … and he leaks them to the Qataris. The Qataris would leak them to media outlets … and he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. I got that confirmation from the Qatari officials.”

– His Qatari contacts claimed that “they [Qatar] finance almost 99 percent of Saudi dissidents in the US and the UK. They pay them.” Bender named Ghanem al-Dosari, a well known YouTuber, as one such individual.

– Three Italians, known as ‘the engineers’ were paid by Qatar to hack the accounts of Saudi Arabian and the United Arab Emirates’s citizens. “E-mails, text messages, regular phone calls, laptops. Anything you can think of. They hacked into all that.”
– American officials are the cheapest to recruit. “British officials, they demand millions to be recruited. American politicians, some of them accept $50,000.”

– The Qataris refer to Trump as “the orange man,” and to Kushner as the “descendant of pigs and apes,” because he is Jewish. “And they refer to other American Senators and Congressmen who are Christians as ‘Crusaders’.”

Ilhan Omar Arrested in 2013 For Trespassing, Booked At Hennepin County Jail

Untitled-design-3-1

State Rep. Ilhan Omar was arrested in 2013 for trespassing and booked at Hennepin County Jail “to prevent further criminal conduct,” according to a newly uncovered police report.

The incident took place on January 18, 2013 following an event at the Minneapolis Convention Center featuring former Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The Somali president was set to stay the night at the Hotel Ivy, causing large groups of Somalis to follow the presidential convoy to the hotel, including Omar.

According to the police report, hotel staff requested police assistance in clearing the lobby, saying that anyone without a hotel room key was not welcome on the premises and needed to leave immediately. The officer handling the incident said the majority of people who were asked to leave were compliant. However, Omar, when approached, was “argumentative” and refused to leave.

“As she stood her ground and refused to leave I took hold of her left elbow to escort her from the lobby. Omar then pulled away from me stating, ‘Don’t put your hands on me!’ Others in her group complied and began walking toward the front entry/exit door as I ordered and I managed to coax Omar out with them,” the police report reads.

Ten minutes after the original encounter, the officer reports finding Omar seated in a different area of the lobby. According to the officer’s account, Omar “remained defiant” as he informed her that she would be arrested for trespassing if she didn’t leave.

Since she refused to comply with orders, the officer arrested Omar. The officer reached for Omar’s left arm to get her to stand so she could be handcuffed, but she pulled away. The officer handcuffed her while she stayed seated in the hotel lobby chair.

“Omar was booked at [Hennepin County Jail] as I felt it was likely that she would fail to respond to a citation and she also demonstrated that she was going to continue her criminal behavior,” the officer wrote.

FLASHBACK: Ilhan Omar Asked Judge for Lighter Sentences for Nine Minnesota Men Plotting to Join ISIS

BGN-Ilhan-Omar-ISIS_840x480

Shortly after her historic election as the nation’s first Somali-American lawmaker, then State Rep. Ilhan Omar, now a member of Congress, asked a judge for lighter sentences in the trial of nine Minnesota men charged with planning to join ISIS.

In a November 2016 letter unearthed by conservative media this week, Omar wrote to Judge Michael Davis requesting “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice” in his sentencing.

“Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence. Society will have no expectations of the to be 50 or 60-year-old released prisoners; it will view them with distrust and revulsion. Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment,” Omar said in her letter.

She was one of 13 individuals to write letters to Davis, who also received a letter from Minneapolis City Council member Abdi Warsame.

“The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion,” Omar continued. “We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to affect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.”

Throughout her letter, Omar argued that the young men were tempted by Islamic extremism because of their “systematic alienation” from society, which should be countered through “inclusion and rehabilitation.”

“A long-term prison sentence for one who chose violence to combat direct marginalization is a statement that our justice system misunderstands the guilty,” she continued. “The most effective penance is making these men ambassadors of reform.”

Omar concluded her letter by telling Davis that his “ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing extremism.”

Two of the men received lighter sentences for cooperating with federal authorities, while the remaining seven all received at least ten years in prison. Guled Omar, who was one of the group’s leaders, received the most severe penalty of 35 years, and two of his fellow ringleaders each received a sentence of 30 years a piece.

Rep. Ilhan Omar pushes for release of jailed Muslim Brotherhood leader

Why is an American congresswoman advocating for an Islamist activist?

muslim-refugee-border-720x340

Rep. Ilhan Omar — whose short tenure in Congress thus far has been rife with controversy — made a shocking appeal Tuesday, openly pushing for the release of a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.

safe_image (2)

Omar took to Twitter Tuesday evening demanding that President Donald Trump call for the release of Hoda Abdelmonem, a senior member in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s women’s affiliate.

I quickly confirmed that this was the same Abdelmonem who has for years been a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, which advocates for Islamist takeover of Egypt.

Abdelmonem remains an influential figure and a senior leader in the Islamist outfit, and the campaign for her release has been a top priority item for Muslim Brotherhood-aligned individuals, groups, and governments. Muslim Brotherhood-tied media networks such as Middle East Eye, Middle East Monitor, and Al Jazeera have dedicated nonstop coverage to this issue, often falsely portraying the Islamist activist as a human rights advocate. Muslim Brotherhood-tied campaigners in the U.S. have continued a full-court press for Abdelmonem’s release.

Additionally, these same entities all remain fiercely opposed to the rule of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who in 2013 ousted Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated former president in Cairo. So convincing the president to call for the release of their Islamist ally would arguably chip away at el-Sisi’s legitimacy.

After posting a photo of her meeting with pro-Muslim Brotherhood campaigners, Omar then doubled down on her push, retweeting this post linking to an Al Jazeera video that calls for Abdelmonem’s release:

Al Jazeera is the state-controlled, Islamist-promoting media network of the Qatari government, which uses slave labor and funds terrorist organizations throughout the Middle East. Al Jazeera regularly promotes Muslim Brotherhood leaders and groups, which seek to overthrow stable U.S. allies and install Islamist theocracies in their stead.

Since entering Congress, Rep. Omar has continued to show a preference for antagonistic U.S. adversaries and throwback Islamist leaders and groups, as opposed to U.S.-friendly Middle East nations and peaceful reform movements worldwide. She has become a regular on the CAIR speaking circuit. The terror-tied Islamist group raised mountains of cash for her congressional campaign.

The Muslim Brotherhood is classified as a terrorist organization in several nations, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Russia, Egypt, and Bahrain. The group has spawned the likes of deceased Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS.

Republicans in Congress continue to push legislation and directly appeal to President Trump to classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, given its tendency for violence and the group’s extremist, anti-American philosophy.

Jeanine Pirro off air at Fox News one week after making controversial comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar

Did Fox News fire network host Jeanine Pirro?

jeanine-pirro-gty-02-jpo-190311_hpEmbed_23x13_992

Did Fox News fire network host Jeanine Pirro?

That’s the question many of Pirro’s fans were likely left asking themselves after tuning into Fox News at 9 p.m. Saturday evening — the typical time Pirro hosts her weekly show — only to find that Fox News was airing a re-run of the documentary “Scandalous.”

What’s going on with Pirro?

According to CNN, all indications suggest that Fox News has suspended Pirro. However, if Fox News suspended Pirro, they are not publicly admitting as much, telling CNN, “we are not commenting on internal scheduling matters.”

Pirro has not tweeted since last weekend, nor did she announce a vacation.

Pirro’s absence comes one week after she controversially questioned the patriotism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). While mocking Omar for wearing a hijab, the traditional Islamic head-covering, Pirro suggested that Omar’s Muslim faith is responsible for her anti-Semitic sentiments.

“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab,” Pirro said on her show. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

In response, Fox News publicly condemned Pirro.

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly,” the network said.

Has Fox fired Pirro?

While the circumstances suggest she has been suspended, there is no indication that she has been fired. After all, Pirro is one of the highest-rated weekend cable news hosts on TV.

It is unclear when Pirro will return to air.
