US Representative in the US House of Representatives Ilhan Omar said, on Saturday, that every minute in which Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman escapes with punishment, it threatens the US interest in human rights and Saudi citizens.
Omar added, during a television interview with CNN, that she “does not see that there is a reason to impose sanctions on Bin Salman, as part of the American support for freedom of expression, democracy and human rights.”
It stated that he was “a man that our private intelligence revealed that he had approved the killing of a resident of the United States,” and that is Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
She pointed out that “Washington has already decided to impose sanctions on other people involved in the killing of Khashoggi, but in the procedures of law and order, we not only punish those who carried out the killing, but also those who agreed to the killing.”
The American MP stressed the need for the United States to do everything it can to keep these values and principles intact.
Ilhan Omar: There is no reason not to impose sanctions on Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) if America supports human rights.
Ilhan Omar is against any diplomatic between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Ilhan Omar’s attitude towards the wahabi version of Islam is hostile. She is against Wahabi version of Islam and hence the Saudi Arabia. If politicians like Ilhan Omar stay in power, the relation between the two nations will remain disastrous.
