A grainy video of Rep. Ilhan Omar (S-MN) leaving an out of the way restaurant in Playa Del Rey with a mystery man was taken by a Jewish citizen who lives in California. The unnamed person who took the video claims he was upset by Omar’s comments at a CAIR (Council For American-Islamic Relations) event the day before. The Somalian refugee turned U.S Congresswoman told the room full of Muslims at the CAIR event that they should be tired of being mistreated in America and should fight back. When recalling the events of 9-11, Rep. Ilhan Omar referred to the Islamic terrorists responsible for the worst terror attack on American soil as, “some people did something.” She has also been criticized for her anti-Semitic remarks.
Last week, The Daily Mail reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children have split up and are heading for another divorce.
Omar has now dumped her current husband Ahmed Hirsi – who she first married in a religious ceremony in 2002 and divorced in 2008 – and moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis’s trendiest neighborhoods, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
But Hirsi, is also spending time at the apartment, which is in the Mill District sector of Minnesota’s largest city, when she is out of town.
The 12-second video, obtained exclusively by DailyMailTV, shows Omar and her companion leaving a romantic, out-of-the-way Italian restaurant in California the day after she had made controversial remarks blaming 9/11 on ‘someone doing something.’
She left Caffé Pinguini in Playa Del Rey, a beachside enclave in Los Angeles, with a man who took pains not to allow the couple to be photographed.
And DailyMailTV has learned that an eyewitness observed Omar and her companion holding hands while dining inside the bistro.
‘The bigger question is why they were at this particular restaurant,’ said the man who took the video. You don’t just stumble across Playa Del Rey on a chilly Sunday evening in March.
‘It’s so out of the way. It’s the sort of place you go when you don’t want anyone to know where you are.’
The video was taken on March 24. A friend had called him to say he had spotted the Minnesota congresswoman at Pinguini and he decided to go there and confront her.
‘It’s only a few miles from where I live and I didn’t really know what I was expecting,’ the man — who doesn’t want to be identified because he works with several left-leaning Hollywood stars — told DailyMail.com.
When he got to the single-story whitewash-walled restaurant, he soon saw Omar and the bespectacled man sitting at a table at the back.
‘I went in pretending I was going for a take-out,’ the source said. ‘I looked over and said to the waiter ”Is that who I think it is?” and he said yes.
‘He told me he was upset with what she had said and kept calling her ungrateful saying she was a refugee and should be happy that the United States had taken her in.
‘He told me they had been holding hands in the restaurant, although I didn’t see that myself.’ Attempts by DailyMail.com to speak to the waiter were unsuccessful.
The man went outside and decided to wait on a bench and attempt to speak to Omar and her companion as they left.
When the couple came out of Pinguini, they walked close to each other but were not touching. The man asked if he could have a few words with her and Omar’s companion immediately told him to put his cellphone down and put his hand in front of the lens.
‘I had planned to film me asking her questions, but her guy asked me to turn off the phone and I agreed figuring it was the only way I could get them to talk.’
‘He seemed very protective of her, it was not a random person. It just felt to me like they were close.
‘I had sort of failed to get her to say anything explosive on camera so I just forgot about it until I saw that her marriage had come to an end. Then I wondered if this man could be the reason behind it.’
He said he and Omar talked for about 10 minutes. ‘As a Jew, I asked her why she seemed to hate Jews and she said she did not. When I asked her about Israel, she said there was hate on both sides.’
Last week DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Omar, 36, has left her husband Ahmed Hirsi — the father of her three children. She has moved into a luxury penthouse apartment in the trendy Mill District of Minneapolis.
On June 28, Rep. Ilhan Omar refused to answer questions by Rebel Media about whether or not she married her brother to help him to gain entry into the US illegally.
Scott Johnson, Preya Samsundar and David Steinburg of PJ Media, have all been investigating Ilhan Omar’s curious alleged marriage to her brother while “culturally” married to her current husband for over three years.
Two weeks ago, Johnson wrote an update on the Omar’s very serious, and potentially imprisonable offenses on the Powerline Blog.
On October 22, 2008, the U.S. State Department stopped accepting applications for the Priority 3/Refugee Family Reunification program — the process by which refugees can apply for asylum if one family member is already a legal U.S. resident. The state halted the program because DNA testing — primarily of Somalis — had concluded that perhaps 87 percent of applicants were fraudulently claiming family relationships.
Despite the continuing war, Somalia of 2008 was not comparable to the open hell of the early 1990s, when an eight-year-old Ilhan and her family fled to Kenya’s Dadaab refugee camps. She lived there from 1991 until 1995, aged eight to 12. Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services then helped Ilhan, her sister Sahra, and their father Nur Said receive asylum in the United States along with thousands of other Somalis.
The complicated moral question of fraud, let alone fault, among this 1990s wave of refugees escaping civil war, will never be answered with accurate statistics. We will have to settle for adjectives like “widespread” and “rampant.” Yet the negative outcomes cannot be ignored. Even refugees with a strong desire to assimilate with Western civic order are hampered by the possible discovery of conflicting documents. And compromising information becomes leverage in a community already difficult to police.
Twelve-year-old Ilhan had no say in the manner in which she arrived in the United States.
However, U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Abdullahi Omar (D-MN) is now under scrutiny for acts she took beginning in 2009 — not 1995. In 2009, Omar was a 26-year-old U.S. citizen. She had been a U.S. citizen for nearly nine years.
Additionally, the foreign national Omar apparently helped commit fraud was not fleeing hell in 2009, either. Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was a long-time citizen of the United Kingdom. He even possessed a high school diploma from the United States: Elmi attended a St. Paul, Minnesota high school for his senior year of 2002-2003, and graduated before returning to London.
Ilhan and Ahmed married in 2009, presumably to benefit in some way from a fraudulent marriage. They did not divorce until 2017.
Spectator US reports – ‘I’m not legally married to two people, but I am legally married to one and culturally married to another.’ That’s how Ilhan Omar’s campaign spokesman Ben Goldfarb summarized Omar’s conjugal arrangements in an email on August 2016, when Omar was running for Congress, and her advisers were trying to stifle allegations of double marriage — with a man alleged to be her brother.
Here’s the real background information about Omar’s ‘confusing’ marital history, in her own words. In 2016, Omar told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that she had married Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi (Husband 1) in their Muslim ‘faith tradition’ in 2002 and that after having two children, they divorced in their ‘faith tradition’ in 2008. No marriage certificate was issued, and there is no documentary evidence for the divorce.
In 2009, Omar married a Somali immigrant to Britain named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi (Husband 2) in a wedding in an unglamorous suburban state registry. The officiator was a Christian minister named Wilecia Harris, now a pastor at the Great and Mighty Works Ministries in Richfield, Minn.
Omar refuses to answer questions as to when and how she happened to meet a British subject, or why she married him so soon after separating from the father of her children. Then again, she didn’t separate that much from Husband 1. Documents released on Monday seem to show that she and Husband 1 were living together in Minneapolis at the time of her marriage to Husband 2. And when Omar and Husband 2 went to college in Fargo at North Dakota State University, Husband 1 came too. That must have made for some awkward silences at the breakfast table.
According to Omar, Husband 2 went back to London in 2011 after a ‘faith-based’ divorce. But according to Alpha News, screenshots from Husband 2’s social media show him living in Minneapolis as late as August 2012. In the same year, she had a third child with Husband 1 and turned Husband 1 into Husband 3 with, she has claimed, another ‘faith tradition’ marriage. Regardless of the ‘faith tradition’ divorce from Husband 2, she was still legally married to him in civil law. Unwittingly or not, she was, as Ben Goldfarb admitted in 2016, now married to two people at the same time.
Omar has sworn that she didn’t legally divorce Husband 2 until 2017 because she couldn’t get in touch with him. Apart from being an admission that she knew she was still legally married to him when she made her second ‘faith tradition’ marriage with Husband 1 and 3 in 2012, this is implausible. Now-deleted postings appear to show that Omar went to London in 2014, and that she and Elmi (Husband 2) were in touch on social media. And this week, new evidence discovered by investigative journalist David Steinberg appears to show that Husband 2 was in Nairobi from December 2012 — and that he was in contact with Omar’s sister.
