This guy decided to make it perfectly clear who did what to whom on 9/11. He obviously was very offended at what Omar said. And no matter how much she tried to walk it back - she cannot unsay the words she's already said (scroll down for video - if sound is not on, click the little speaker icon at bottom left of video screen):

It was his mother who died that day.

I think a lot of Americans feel the way this man feels, and are as outraged as you are that she never apologized for her words...all she can say is they were taken "out of context", but has never been able to explain why they are "out of context". She is an anti-Semitic, anti-American Muslim...you know the ones who flew planes into the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon and probably headed for the Capital or White House if the heroes on Flight 93, who charged the cockpit, hadn't stopped it.

BB you run your mouth as if you read what Lady Omar said, in the talk and in interview afterwards.

You do not know crap..

Only repeating what the right wing fish wrap told you she said.. it is not in fact what she said or how she stands..

Simple right wing lies for the right wing simple minded.. helped and directed by trump of course..

So.. she said..

https://www.factcheck.org/2019/04/rep-ilhan-omars-9-11-comments-in-context/

“Many people expect, expect our community to feel like it needs to hide every time something happens,” Omar said, referring to the American Muslim community. “But repeatedly we have shown them that we are not to be bullied. We are not to be threatened. We are not to be terrorized. We are strong and resilient, and we will always show up to be ourselves because we know we have a right to a dignified existence and a dignified life.”

Omar said discrimination against Muslims has been exacerbated by President Donald Trump, who once said, “I think Islam hates us.” She went on to say that the president “thinks it is OK, it is OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing, vilifying, and doesn’t understand — or at least makes us want to think that he doesn’t understand — the consequences that his words might have.”

Because here’s the truth, here’s the truth, far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen. And frankly, I’m tired of it. And every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.”

That was immediately followed by the sentence with the phrase that is the subject of the recent controversy.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange, that I am going to try to make myself look pleasant. You have to say this person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it. I am going to talk to them and ask them why. Because that is a right you have.”

Trump joined those critical of her comments with an April 12 tweet that said, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” His tweet included a video that starts with Omar’s clipped comment — “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something” — followed by gruesome scenes of the 9/11 attacks. The 43-second video, which has been viewed more than 10 million times, repeats her phrase “some people did something” several times interspersed with footage of the attack and wreckage.

Omar said that since the president’s tweet, “I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life — many directly referencing or replying to the president’s video.”

she retweeted several defenders who said her comments were being manipulated and used out of context. In one tweet, Mehdi Hasan, a columnist at the Intercept, wrote, “She didn’t trivialize 9/11, she pointed out that Islamoohobes like yourself use 9/11 to smear all Muslims.” In another, Rep. Ayanna Pressley wrote that Omar’s “full comments clearly speak to post 9/11 #Islamophobia” and that “Manipulating her remarks is defaming & dangerous for her & her family.” And Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez noted that Omar is a cosponsor of H.R. 1327, a bill that seeks to fully fund the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

On CNN’s “State of the Union” on April 14, host Jake Tapper asked Rep. Nadler if he took “any issue with the way Congresswoman Omar characterized 9/11.”

“No, I did not,” Nadler said. “She characterized it only in passing. She was talking about discrimination against Muslim Americans. And she just said that, after that happened, it was used as an excuse for lots of discrimination and for withdrawal of civil liberties.”

This has been pointed out many times. Seems it won't make any difference. You are correct to point out that she was talking about the rise of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim discrimination and violence.

It's strange to me that 18 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis, yet they are still our besties in the Arab world. But Ms. Omar?....yeah, let's attack her.

It’s what she has said many times. She is anti Semitic, anti Christian, and anti American. You don’t have to look hard to find a lot of her disgusting comments. Where’s all this supposed anti Muslim violence?

She was speaking about Muslims being discriminated against. Her statement was not taken out of context - we know EXACTLY what she was referring to. What you quote her as saying above shows how much she wants to separate Muslims from Americans. There is no such thing as a "friendly" Muslim. They do not assimilate, they stay together as groups all over the country and make sure those groups grow and grow. And when they are large enough, they will unite and do what they have done all over Europe and especially the UK. Non Muslim people are infidels to them. They are taught by their Koran that if non Muslims will not conform to Islam, they must be killed. They are anti-Semitic and anti-American and they should certainly NOT be part of the Congress of the United States of America.

I wonder if it really matters if they were Saudi’s. Saudi Islamists hate their own government as much as ours. Al Qaida is made up of Islamists from many countries. Hard to tell with these scum if country matters at all.

It matters when one is determining who to ally with and who to invade...

Not so sure. It wasn’t the government of Saudi Arabia that attacked us. We know where they trained and where Bin Ladin was located. These guys have no loyalty to country of origin. Quite the opposite.
