Former Miss Iraq claims that Rep. Ilhan Omar is ‘Trying to Push Sharia Law on U.S.’: Here is why she knows the truth
Former Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan says; ‘Ilhan Omar Does Not Represent me as a Muslim’. For this simple statement and a selfie, she is under threat of death.
After the Iraqi government threatened to cancel her citizenship, former Miss Iraq Sarah Idan is putting up a fight. Idan posted a photo with Miss Israel at the Miss Universe pageant as a show of “peace,” she told the “Sara Carter Show” Sunday. Since sharing the post on social media and becoming outspoken, Idan’s faced continued threats to her life, but she’s not cowering to the fear.
She was forced to flee her native country after posting a selfie of herself and Miss Israel. Idan has also lambasted Rep. Ilhan Omar for trying to push Sharia law on the U.S.:
“Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim — does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East,” Sarah Idan, who lives in the U.S., told “The Sara Carter Show.”
“They are extremist Muslims, Sunni Muslims, who are now working together with Iran against all the Arab countries,” she said. “They’re working now with Hezbollah, with Turkey, with all that. You know, the thing is about this organization, they are extremist Muslims, they’re Jihadis, and they have this ideology that they want to control the world.”
Women like Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Idan said, exploit progressive sentiments. “They feed on the sympathy of people,” Idan added.
Her remarks came in the wake of a Twitter battle in which Idan accused Omar of trying to “export” the same ideology that she fled from in the Middle East. “First was the Middle East, then Europe & now the USA. I fled from the same ideology you’re trying to export here,” she said.
“You know like in Arab countries we call her the Muslim Brotherhood,” she added.
She understands far too well what happens when people don’t have the power to speak up. Idan grew up under the theocratic regime of Saddam Hussein.

She was taught that the U.S. and Israel were both “evil” forces, but Idan later learned that that was not the case.
“When I saw the soldiers the U.S. soldiers the first time how they came and how they talked to us they gave us candy and flowers and they were like just one of the nicest people,” Idan told Carter. She no longer saw “I feel like here more at home than in Iraq,” she said.
The belief in freedom, Idan said, “is something you cannot find in another country.”
them as “evil” and, at the age of 18, Idan became a translator for the U.S. troops.
Now, Idan’s lived in the U.S. for nearly eight years, and in an interview with i24 news, Idan expanded on the accusation, saying, “It’s an ideology of trying to push Islam to make it the ruling system of the country.”
Ilhan Omar is always promoting an Islamist agenda while claiming to speak for all the Muslims in America, including the moderates who oppose Sharia, says Former Miss Iraq Sarai Idan.📺 More i24ne.ws/VZC830n1FWe

She continued by saying that Omar angered a lot of Muslims in the U.S. because she always says, “I speak for every Muslim in this country.”
“She made a lot of us angry — moderate Muslims who escaped Sharia, who are trying to push for moderate Islam and a reform of Islam,” Idan said.
In an earlier tweet, Idan described the Minnesota Representatives’s agenda as “anti-American.”
