During a 9/11 memorial, Nicholas Haros Jr. the son of a woman killed during that day attacked Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. This is due to comments she made previously referring to the 9/11 attacks as an event where “some people did something.”
What We Know:
- Haros Jr. spoke steps away from the former World Trade Center’s south tower, where his mom passed away that day.
- Omar’s comments came from a speech in March to fundraise for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), according to the Daily Wire.
- This received heavy criticism from the right-wing. Everyone was attacking Omar like a punching bag which led Trump to tweet about it. Congresswoman Rashida Talib stated that people took Omar’s word out of context and called it a biased attack on women of color.

- Both Talib and Omar support CAIR which is listed as an unindicted co-conspirator towards giving millions of dollars to Hamas, a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist fundamentalist militant organization.
September 11th was an attack on all of us.
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

Haros Jr. finished by saying “Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”
