Democrats Seek To Unseat ‘Electorally Vulnerable’ Ilhan Omar

via Good Morning America

Incumbent Democrat Ilhan Omar faces three formidable opponents in her re-election bid for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district.

Former Minneapolis City Council member Don Samuels, who narrowly lost to Omar in 2022, is challenging her again, citing her missteps and polarizing nature.

“Ilhan hasn’t helped herself,” Samuels said. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“She has made missteps, even after the last race. And so some folks are coming [to support me] because of what I am, who I am, and what I will do, and some are coming because of what she does and will do.”

“My opponent is known for divisiveness and rancor personally, locally, nationally, and internationally,” he added.

Additionally, Dalia al-Aqidi, a pro-Israel Republican immigrant from Iraq, criticizes Omar’s stance on Israel and accuses her of being anti-Semitic.

Al-Aqidi emphasizes her pro-Israel stance and rejects identity politics.

She accuses Omar of not condemning Hamas and claims that Omar and Rashida Tlaib have tried to indoctrinate the Muslim and Middle Eastern communities in the US.

“My religion should not matter to anyone but myself,” Al-Aqidi said.

“If I was a white woman, if I was a black woman, if I was a white man, saying what I’m saying now? I’d be called a white supremacist, a hater, a racist, a bigot.”

“While I was here, Ilhan Omar voted against the U.S. House resolution that condemned Hamas. And that tells you a lot about who Ilhan Omar is,” Al-Aqidi said.

“I come here as a Muslim, as someone who understands what it means to be a radical Muslim.”

“Unfortunately, the majority of people in the United States cannot comprehend the difference between being a Muslim or being an extremist.”

“And, of course, that came from the narrative of [Rep.] Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar, that if you criticize radical Islamism, it means you criticize Muslims.”

“For years, they’ve been trying to indoctrinate the Muslim community and the Middle Eastern community in the United States,” she said.

“I’m Muslim, and I was here when 9/11 happened. I was not muted just because I was a Muslim.”

“I was not mistreated because of my identity or because of my religion. I love America.”

“I came to America because I fled the hostility and oppression in the Middle East. I don’t want to come here and be oppressed by so-called Muslims,” Al-Aqidi added.
