Dr. Qanta Ahmed is an American Muslim who has taken care of people who survived the 9/11 attacks in New York City. She recently appeared on the Fox News channel and said that Rep. Ilhan Omar is a “disgrace to Islam.”
The doctor said that Omar “continues to be an embarrassment and a disgrace for me and other American Muslims with her outrageous, ignorant, anti-Semitic and now anti-American comments.”
In an article published by Fox, Ahmed wrote that “while Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, holds herself out as a proud Muslim, she repeatedly projects a distorted and patently Islamist interpretation of Islam – a religion that in reality stands for the values of justice, peace and ethical conduct.
Sadly, Omar gives millions of Americans a false impression of what Islam is and what we Muslims believe and stand for. While she denounces prejudice against Muslims, her aberrant views on Islam fuel prejudice against me and my coreligionists by distorting who we are while defaming and dishonoring the great monotheism of Islam.”
Omar recently described the horrific Islamist terrorist attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001 by saying at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
The attack on 9/11 killed almost 3,000 people and injured more than 6,000 others.
“The statement Omar made was not correct, CAIR was founded in 1994. And the congresswoman displayed an insensitivity to the worst foreign attack on America in our history.
Dr. Ahmed wrote: Omar’s grotesque trivialization of a national tragedy amounts to an explicit denial of 9/11 – a desecration of all the lives erased that awful day. This denial is inexplicable unless she has strong and covert Islamist sympathies.”]
