A prominent Muslim in the United States House of Representatives, Ilhan Omar, has now stated that she would vote for Joe Biden even though she thinks he is guilty of rape. She has previously stated that she does in fact believe the accusations against Joe Biden by his rape-victim, Tara Reade.
A member of the infamous Squad comprised of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Omar herself, the Minnesota congresswoman is now drawing ire for saying that she would vote for Joe Biden. Ironically, Omar was regularly in the press working against the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because he had been far-less-credibly accused of inappropriate sexual contact than Joe Biden.
Omar was asked on Good Morning America where she stood on Biden’s campaign, considering she believes he’s a rapist.
Talib answered, “I think it’s important when someone says they have been assaulted and they see themselves as survivors that we, as we have been saying, believe survivors.”
But then startling onlookers, Talib said Biden’s rape of Reade doesn’t matter to her and she will vote for him anyway.
“This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime…it’s important for us to create a space where we allow for survivors to come forward. And that has been consistent with my values, and I think we can do both.”
She then confirmed in a series of tweets that her choice for president was who she believed was a rapist, Joe Biden (see below).
Certain Muslims interpret the Quran to permit rape for “those thy right hand possesses,” referring to slaves, concubines, prisoners-of-war, children, and employees.
The Islamic State published material that read (for example):
Q: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female slave who has not reached puberty?
A; It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.’
The literature cites the Quran 23:5–6, which permits sex with those held “by the right hand” or under the authority of the rapist.
Currently, rape-statistics for the Islamic world indicate that Muslim nations have the highest rate of violent sexual assault in the world. Sadly, this is why honor-killings of rape victims are legal in places like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Pakistan. Figures also demonstrate that Muslim aliens in Europe are far more likely to be charged with violent sexual assault, rape, and molestation than European-born residents.
Regardless of the impact of Islam upon her pro-Biden position, it is clear that Rep. Omar considers rape a less-serious offense than political conservatism.
