Rep. Ilhan Omar early Tuesday morning deleted a 2013 post that said her father’s name is Nur Said.

“Happy Father’s Day to my aabo Nur Said, I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father a…” the Minnesota Democrat said in the June 2013 post.

Omar’s spokesman, Jeremy Slevin, did not answer questions from the Daily Caller News Foundation about why a congresswoman would try to erase the identity of her father from the internet. But the name of the man who Omar married under unusual circumstances was Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, adding to evidence that she married her brother.

At 8pm on Monday, Shaikh Tawhidi, the “Imam of Peace,” tweeted a link to the tweet. The DCNF observed the live tweet and took a screenshot at that time.

Soon after, One America News journalist Jack Posobiec called attention to the tweet and archived it here.

By Tuesday morning, the six-year-old tweet had disappeared.

The Father’s Day tweet links to an Instagram post that had previously been deleted, which likely would have finished the sentence in the tweet.

In 2016, Power Line’s Scott Johnson, PJMedia’s David Steinberg and Alpha News’ Preya Samsundar
published Instagram and Facebook screenshots suggesting that Omar married her brother. But the Instagram posts are now deleted, leading the media to treat the screenshots with caution.

The Minnesota Star-Tribune reported in June that Elmi was “possibly her own brother,” but noted that it was unable to obtain the original social media posts shared by Power Line and Alpha News.

Omar says she married a different man, Ahmed Hirsi, under a religious, but non-legal ceremony in 2002 and had two children, then separated from him and married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, the Tribune reported. But in 2012, she had another child that she says was Hirsi’s and in 2014 and 2015, filed her taxes jointly with him — all while legally married to Elmi.

Meanwhile, addresses listed in dozens of traffic violations and other publicly available government documents first uncovered by the Washington Examiner show that Omar was living with Hirsi the entire time.

One Instagram screenshot saved by Power Line shows that one day after Omar’s daughter was born in 2012, Elmi posted to a picture to his Instagram account of him holding a baby with the caption “Nieces, fresh out the vagina!”

In 2017, she filed for divorce from Elmi and said she hadn’t seen him since 2012. She swore under oath that she did not know the name of a single member of his family and did not know anyone who knew him. But another Power Line screenshot of a deleted post from Omar’s Instagram account shows her with Elmi in London during this period.

Other family members have scrubbed their online profiles to hide the relationship between Omar and people with the last name Nur Said Elmi.

Additionally, in December 2016, a man named Suleiman Axoow wrote on Facebook: “On Wednesday night I had an opportunity to have dinner with State Representative-Elect Ilhan Omar & her lovely sis Leila Elmi.”

Leila’s 1997 marriage certificate shows that she lived in Camden, a neighborhood of London, and was 24 years old that year. It shows that her father‘s name was Nur Said Elmi. Omar’s ex-husband Elmi’s Facebook page, which the DCNF archived on June 23, shows that he was attending the Haverstock School as a 12-year-old in the same neighborhood during that time period. The profile was deleted after the DCNF linked to it in a previous story.

The one person who Omar has publicly recognized as her sibling in America is Sahra Noor, who ran a high-profile nonprofit in Minnesota. Sahra has identified Nur Said as her father, according to screenshots published in 2016 by Preya Samsundar.

In January 2019, Noor moved to Nairobi, Kenya, to start a company called Grit Partners International. Ahmed Elmi, who works in digital marketing, manages her Instagram account. On Instagram’s mobile app, if you click “email” on Grit Partners Internation’s page, it drafts an email to him.

    Trump needs to out law any Muslim to government. Like it was before McCain and his fellow cronies went behind the Americans back and voted to undo what was all ready a law.

  • Don says:

    She needs to be removed from Government and prosecuted and put in GITMO and when she gets out deported and never let back into America z!!!!

  • Yank says:

    It is good to see that Omar, or whatever her true identity is, loves her father. It appears, though, that she REALLY loves her brother, though!!! Ahahahahahahaaa…

    We all have the power to change this. VOTE a straight REPUBLICAN Ticket. Keep them contained. The only way we have to stop this Socialist madness is to do our part and vote . Otherwise,yes, America is doomed.

    Slowly, inexorably, the media is dragged into discovering what many people already know. Omar’s family name isn’t what she says it is. Her father was Nigerian, not Somalian. Her father worked as a bloody torturer and murderer that ruled in Nigeria. When the Nigerian despot was thrown out, Omar’s father had to flee to Somalia to escape retribution. Not safe in Somalia, Omar’s father lied as 80% of the people did in the “P3” immigration program to get into America.
    Where Omar’s father instilled non American values, hate and disdain for other humans into Omar.
    Omar knows all of this, any relevant Intelligence Agency knows this… but Americans largely don’t know Omar is nothing but a Jihadist Islamist.
    The amazing thing is that Soros got her into office with the help of the Young Turk Islamists and all of them plan to have Omar in a position of Leadership in the House of Congress. Alongside AOC and Tlaib.
    Slowly, inexorably, the media is dragged into admitting that the media is essentially useless where vetting by media is such a long gone tradition, that the 2020 Dem Primaries will see dozens more like Omar gain a seat in Congress.
