Ilhan Omar Uses Violent Quran Passage to Respond to Criticism About Affair

PJ Media:

On Wednesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) quoted a violent passage from the Quran calling for false accusers to receive a flogging of eighty lashes. She was responding to a Quran quote condemning adultery with another quote condemning those who falsely accuse “chaste” women of adultery. Her response was particularly rich given her recent marital history.

Omar tweeted “Subhanallah,” a celebratory phrase that roughly translates to “May Allah be exalted!” A Twitter user rained on her parade, tweeting a Quran quote condemning adultery.

“‘Nor come nigh to fornication/adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils).’ — Qur’an, Sura 17 (Al-Isra), ayat 3,” Retawa Agnihotri tweeted.

Omar responded with the tweet about flogging.

“‘And those who accuse chaste women, and produce not four witnesses, flog them with eighty stripes, and reject their testimony forever. They indeed are the Faasiqoon (liars, rebellious, disobedient to Allaah)’ [al-Noor 24:4],” she tweeted.

In this tweet, Omar did not just appear to endorse the Quran’s extremely harsh physical punishment for a false accusation, she also effectively claimed to be “chaste” and not guilty of “fornication/adultery.” read more

  2. The Quran seems to be just fine for a politician to use in justifying her (or his) actions, but let a politician try use the Bible and see what happens.

  5. I guess she’s right. Off the top of my head I can only come up with three witnesses – her ex-husband, her new husband, and her dad. Will no one come forward?!? Where’s her brotherhusband when we need him?
