Rep Omar's Strange Relationship With ISIS Supporters

Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Sharia-friendly Democrat Congressional Rep  from Minnesota, once attempted to win leniency for a group of men who signed up to join ISIS.

The whole story stems back to  an incident in 2016 when Omar asked Judge Michael Davis to help  Abdirahman Yasin Daud, a man who was recently arrested with others for  attempting to join ISIS.   In total, there were nine Somali-Americans  accused of this crime, which is probably why Rep Omar was sympathetic  towards them - she's a Somali-American and she frequently plays into  identity politics to please her core constituents, even when it means  making questionable decisions.

Daud was arrested for trying to  purchase fake passports in an attempt to travel to Syria.  After  reaching Syria, he planned to join the Islamic State, a terror group who  openly practices slavery, torture, rape, murder and a slew of other  heinous crimes against humanity.  Federal prosecutors wanted Daud serve  30 years in a federal prison with a lifetime of supervised release.  Rep  Omar felt differently. 

At the time, Omar was still a  Minnesota state lawmaker.  She asked Judge Davis to give "compassion" to  the men because apparently she didn't think joining a death cult was a  big deal.  

Rep Omar wrote to Judge Davis:

      The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion. We must  alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to affect change, we  should refocus our efforts on 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 sent a total of 13 letters begging Judge Davis to forgive these ISIS-wannabes.  

But  Judge Davis wasn't having it - he sentenced Daud to 30 years in federal  prison anyway.  The Islamic-extremist was found guilty of conspiring to provide  material support to a foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to  commit murder outside the U.S.

There's nothing honorable about trying to join ISIS.  They murder, rape children, and torture the people who they capture. 

Once again, the Democrats are on the wrong side of history.
