...you call it a "smear" yet she still didn't deny in. Instead, she issues a thinly veiled excuse laden statement about how "her past doesn't matter" hedging her bets against the truth coming out.
The countries they came from had poorly-to-non functioning governments. Using a different name or fake papers wouldn't be terribly difficult for someone coming from there.
I assume you can refute the allegation without smearing the source of it...? No?
I had a feeling you couldn't.
As if things could not get any stranger in the Ilhan Omar marriage controversy, Alpha News has received several e-mails from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi the man who is believed to be the “legal” husband of Ilhan Omar demanding we remove his picture from our site. Based on evidence that Alpha News has obtained over the past few weeks, Elmi is also believed to be the biological brother of Omar.
Omar, in a carefully crafted statement, has said that she is married culturally to Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children who appears in her campaign literature. She said that she and Hirsi briefly separated and she then married a man from the UK named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Alpha News found Ahmed Nur Said Elmi’s e-mail address on a resume posting website called “branded.me”. Not only did the picture used on the resume look like other known pictures of Elmi, he also listed that he attended North Dakota State University, where he studied Fine Arts. In previous stories, Alpha News discovered that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi attended NDSU after he married Omar in 2009.
While there are several Ahmed Elmi’s in the world, it appears only one went to NDSU.
Alpha News e-mailed the address listed on the account last week and asked Elmi about his relationship to Ilhan Omar. Elmi responded that he is “not entirely sure I’m aware of what’s going on, but there seems to have been a mistake made.”
Elmi then confirmed that the photographs that are in the Alpha News articles are definitely of him, and says that: “no way am I affiliated with anyone in your articles. Nor do I recall being married to anyone. At least, from what I remember.”
Alpha News then wrote back to Elmi along with 2 photos asking him: “Are you saying that the man pictured in the top photo is not the same man pictured in the one beneath? And you also happen both to be named Ahmed Elmi?” Alpha News also questioned Elmi on attending North Dakota State University. “We’ve noticed that you seem to have removed North Dakota State University from your LinkedIn profile that you included in your signature? If you could please explain, we would be happy to discuss removing the image from our site.”
Elmi’s response to this e-mail was even stranger. He confirmed that the photographs that Alpha News sent to him are of him. In one of the photos, Elmi is pictured with Ilhan Omar. He says, “Yes – both photographs are of me. And they are both taken at various events that I go to from time to time.
Alpha News checked with NDSU’s Office of Records and Registration and the university confirmed that there was no one by the name of “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi” that attended the school in spring of 2005 with that birthdate. Alpha News also confirmed with NDSU that once accepted to the school as either a foreign or domestic student, they automatically become a part of the school’s attendance records.
On the marriage license of Ahmed Nur Said Elmi and Ilhan Omar, the birthday listed for Elmi is April 4, 1985.
Alpha News continued to try and eliminate him as Omar’s legal husband by asking a series of questions and explained that we were running out of options.
An exasperated Elmi wrote back that he “can’t stress enough how bizarre it feels to answer these questions.”
Confirmation of Key Photo
In the e-mail above, Elmi did confirm that the photo of the girls in uniform that was featured in Alpha News’ August 22nd article, are from his Instagram and are “family members”. He refers to the girls in the photo as “#nieces”. Most importantly is that Ilhan Omar, whose Instagram name is @hameey “liked” the photo. The photo is dated May 4, 2013.
New Instagram Photos
To add more fuel to the fire, Alpha News received new photographs from an unnamed source in the Somali community who forwarded photos from the Instagram account of Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. The photos, dated 2012, are of Elmi with Ilhan Omar’s then-newborn daughter Ilwad with the caption of “Nieces, fresh out of the [female anatomy]” and another photo of Omar’s father, Nur Said Elmi Mohamed, with the caption underneath the photo, reading “The father of…!The father of…!” Omar’s youngest daughter was born in 2012.

To be clear, in this case, it's less about the idea that she had incestuous relations with her own brother. I actually don't believe she likely did, and more about the idea that she would marry him in name only simply to defraud the immigration system.
Do her a solid? Ilhan Omar’s hoping Donald Trump can help free an imprisoned Muslim Brotherhood member
Ilhan just wants to help out a “political prisoner” … who apparently just so happens to be pretty high up on the Muslim Brotherhood food chain.

I am a Muslim and I do not condone this anti Islamic action, it is forbidden to marry your brother or sister in Islam
chapter 4:23 "women"
"Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives' mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
