New York Post Front Page Calls Out Ilhan Omar Over 9/11 Remarks

The Wrap Thursday, 11 April 2019
New York Post Front Page Calls Out Ilhan Omar Over 9/11 RemarksThe New York Post published a denunciation of Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday with a front page editorial calling out her remarks that appeared to trivialize the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“Rep Ilhan Omar: 9/11 Was ‘Some People Did Something,'” blared the front cover, which included a full image of the former Twin Towers on fire in the moments before they collapsed.

“Here’s your something — 2,977 people dead by terrorism,” it continued.

“How pathetic: A member of Congress can’t acknowledge what happened on one of the most horrific days in US history,” a piece from the Post Editorial board continued. “Omar’s cavalier brushing off of the murder of thousands of innocents on 9/11 should shock all Americans, Muslims included.”

The latest Omar imbroglio was sparked several days ago after after snippets of footage from her speech to a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser last month went viral. The most highly-charged moment came when she characterized 9/11 as a moment when “some people did something.”

Omar — who downplayed terrorism — instead used the moment to talk about how Muslim civil liberties had been curtailed.

“Here’s the truth. For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” she said. “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.”

In its editorial, the Post said Omar was hiding from the facts of that day.

“[It is] vital to note that the terrorists acted in the name of Islam — as self-described ‘jihadists’ in a war against America, Israel and the West. To call them merely ‘some people’ is to deny a cancer festering in the world Muslim community,” it noted. “No one expects Muslims to ‘hide’ after an attack by Islamist terrorists. No group should be blamed for the deeds of a few of its members. But defeating terrorism requires facing the facts of who’s behind it and why.”

Reps for Omar’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.
