Nicholas Haros Jr. wants Rep. Ilhan Omar and “the Squad” to know exactly who those “some people” are that perpetrated the “something” that took the life of his mom – and nearly 3,000 other people – 18 years ago.
The New Jersey resident, who lost his mother Frances in the 9/11 terror attacks, ripped the Minnesota congresswoman on Wednesday during a reading of victims’ names at Ground Zero after Omar’s infamous remarks earlier in the year in which she described the most horrific attack to ever occur on the American homeland simply as “some people did something.”
“Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom,” said Haros Jr., who sported a shirt with Omar’s words and was met with some applause from a crowd of families and relatives who had gathered for the ceremony. “Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”
He continued: “On that day 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al Qaeda, killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage. Is that clear?”
As Haros Jr. spoke, he was standing just steps away from the site of the former World Trade Center’s south tower — where his 76-year-old mother, Frances, walked into work one pleasant Tuesday morning and never returned home.
“But as to whom? I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked,” Haros Jr. said, looking out to the crowd. “Our constitutional freedoms were attacked and our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles was attacked.”
He added: “That’s what some people did,” Haros Jr. concluded. “Got that now? We are here today congresswoman to tell you and the Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please.”
Omar tweeted about the attacks on Wednesday around the same time Haros Jr. was making his remarks, though it wasn’t immediately clear if Omar’s tweet was in response to his words.
“September 11th was an attack on all of us,” she wrote. “We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil. I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget”
The “some people did something” comment from Omar that drew such widespread criticism was made at a March 23 fundraiser for the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations.
“Here’s the truth: 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.”
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley – the other three members of the Democrat quartet dubbed “The Squad” – sprang to Omar’s defense, with Tlaib telling MSNBC that Omar’s words were taken out of context.
“They do that all the time, especially women of color, they take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth, we speak truth to power,” Tlaib said.
Haros Jr., in a 2001 interview with the Staten Island Advance, described his mom as a tireless receptionist at Keefe Bruyette & Woods, a financial firm that had office space on the 88th and 89th floors of the World Trade Center’s south tower.
“The traders used to treat her like an office mother,” he told the newspaper at the time, noting she chose to continue working that year instead of retiring. “Until she couldn’t physically walk or crawl, she was going to work.”
…“Stop. Stop, please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater,” Haros Jr. declared. “Their lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more.”
In case you have not seen the video in which Rep. Omar made the horrible statement that Mr. Haros was referring to, here it is…
While I was surfing social media yesterday, I saw Liberals once again claiming that we average Americans, misunderstood what Rep. Omar was saying.
This was no “misunderstanding” of what she said and meant. Rep. Omar is most definitely a Radical Islamist.
Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.
Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.
The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.
In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.
Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS – anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.
Per their website BDSMovement.net,
The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.
Of course, Representative Omar is also supported by and supportive of CAIR – The Council on American-Islamic Relations.
…From its inception, CAIR has sought to portray itself as a moderate, mainstream organization, and as early as 1996 its officials became frequent guests at State Department and White House events. In the aftermath of 9/11, when the Bush administration tried to reassure American Muslims that Islam was not the target of the war on terrorism, CAIR officials were prominent among the invitees. CAIR was the main Islamic group to gain U.S. media access in the post-9/11 period, providing the “Muslim view” of the terrorist attacks and of America’s response to them. As self-acclaimed Muslim spokesmen, CAIR officials typically refused to “simplify the situation” by blaming Osama bin Laden for the attacks on America. Moreover, while they eventually were induced by journalists to condemn Palestinian suicide terror in a pro forma manner, they hedged their disavowals by describing it as an understandable response to Israeli brutality.
A few months back, Fox News’ Jesse Watters had had enough of Ilhan Omar blaming America for everthing wrong in the world.
“I would issue a challenge to her. Omar, please say one good thing about America,” Watters said on “The Five” on Thursday.
“We hear her so much saying what’s wrong with America. Just say what you’re proud of. I think that would counterbalance some of the negativity that you hear coming out of her mouth.”
Jesse is still waiting for a response.
He should not have expected one from her, anyway.
After all, the woman is an anti-American, anti-Semite Muslim from Somalia who married her own brother to keep him from being deported.
Words mean things.
Rep. Omar is, quite simply, an enemy of the nation which she has sworn an oath to serve.
It is way past time that she called out for it.
It was not “airplanes” who kill 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001 as the failing New York Times headline claimed yesterday.
Indeed, it was 19 Radical Islamist Terrorists who slaughtered innocent Americans that fateful day.
Thank you, Mr. Haros, for doing what needed to be done.
Your mother would be proud.
May God bless all of the families of the fallen.
Until He Comes,
