The jihad candidate strikes again. The woman’s name is Abrar Omeish. It has been reported that Omeish has close ties to several Muslim Brotherhood groups, including the International Institute of Islamic Thought. An organization that was once raided by federal law enforcement for their ties to Hamas and Islamic Jihad fundraising. Omeish is also the daughter of Dr. Esam S. Omeish, who has openly advocated for jihad against Israel.
Bernie Sanders has accomplished what was thought to be impossible. He has made Barack Obama look like a moderate. Never before has someone this dangerous been so close to becoming POTUS. It’s just stunning, and frightening. One must wonder how much influence terror tied CAIR has over Sanders. #Trump2020!

Sanders names daughter of Muslim Brotherhood leader as Virginia campaign co-chair
Abrar served as president of the Muslim Brotherhood-founded Muslim Students Association while at Yale University, participating in an effort to deplatform Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an author and former Muslim who campaigns for women’s rights.
By Center for Security Policy, February 19, 2020:
The daughter of a radical Islamist operative is a state co-chair of presidential frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.
Sanders named Abrar Omeish, daughter of Libyan-born jihadist sympathizer Esam Omeish, as a co-chair of his Virginia campaign on February 18.
On her own merits, the 24 year-old Abrar Omeish is of little political consequence. She is the youngest person to ever hold office in the state, having been elected in 2019 to the Fairfax County School Board. Her role on the campaign appears to be a Sanders gesture to a more powerful political constituency: the well-organized radical Sunni Islamist networks across the United States. Abrar Omeish’s father is former president of the Muslim American Society, a group identified by federal prosecutors as the “overt arm” of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.
The elder Omeish is best known in Virginia state politics for having been removed from a Virginia Immigration board by then-governor Tim Kaine, a Democrat, after a video surfaced of Omeish endorsing violent jihad against Israel.
Esam Omeish also served on the board of Dar al Hijrah mosque, a Falls Church, Virginia-based mosque with a long history of ties to terrorism finance. Omeish has also been accused of links to terrorism by a Libyan parliamentary security committee. He is a naturalized citizen of the United States.
