What About Dalia?

What About Dalia?

Written by John D. Guandolo

U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s words and actions are repugnant to many Americans. Her anti-American rants, Jew-hatred, despicable comments about 9/11, and sharia-adherent garb are visually and practically offensive to many who understand what she is all about.

And that is exactly the response her words and actions are meant to evoke.

Over the last few years, UTT has provided information via interviews, our TV show and articles here about the Splinter – a term describing layers of deception keeping the United States from clearly seeing the core threat – in this case, Islam.

It goes like this…

Leaders of Hamas/CAIR in suits point to ISIS’ crucifixions, beheadings and other barbaric behavior which, in comparison, make Hamas/CAIR officials look “moderate” and “someone we can work with.”

As Hamas/CAIR comes under greater scrutiny by a better-educated public and a few vocal leaders, “moderate muslims” step forward to call out the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and “radical Islam” for being threats and incompatible with American law and principles.

Note: none of the “moderates” actually speak TRUTH about sharia/Islam

The aforementioned process is a SPLINTER. Different facades of the same threat, each more attractive than the previous one.

UTT has spoken openly that Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar would open doors and plow ground for clean-cut, good-looking muslim men and non-hijab wearing women who would run for public office, many as republicans.

And here we are.

Relative to Ilhan Omar, Dalia al Aqidi, the republican candidate for Omar’s Congressional seat, appears a much more attractive and “moderate” choice.

Dalia al Aqidi’s patriotic campaign video is powerful, and might make you want to stand up and sing the national anthem. A refugee from Iraq, Aqidi’s story paints a picture of the plight of an inspiring woman fleeing injustice for a better life.

Aqidi exactly fits the model of the next splinter UTT has been warning about for three years.

Openly criticizing Omar, Aqidi wears no burka or hijab, is attractive, and says she is everything Ilhan Omar is not.

Over the last week numerous conservative figures have promoted Aqidi on social media, publicized her efforts, and interviewed her in conservative media.

Dalia al Aqidi has skyrocketed out of nowhere, moved to Minnesota, and, seemingly overnight, been dropped into the laps of republicans as the answer to Ilhan.

And “conservative” republicans are gobbling her up.

All of this is unfolding exactly how UTT predicted, in keeping with the enemy’s modus operandi, and with no thoughtful questions from people who claim to understand the threat.

Is it possible Dalia al Aqidi is who and what she says she is? It is possible.

However, if Dalia al Aqidi is not a part of the Islamic Movement’s intentional rollout of the next phase of their operation, she would be the first muslim candidate identified as such since 9/11.

What are the odds?

  2. I hope that Sam has read John’s excellent response as well as all the rest of the comments, it may be you have not read or heard about the many sura’s of the Quran, believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate version of Islam,then we can understand your cold reaction. The current CVE which our national security uses as a guide to detect violent extremism or Islamic terrorism deny Islam is a problem, but this was an active measure to purge information to overlap sharia law on our Constitution, deny free speech, or define free speech even if true, as hate, or racist speech, for speaking truthfully about Islam, and may fund this movement that may aid this sedition. I have not heard Dalia speak, however I have read the Quran that is a prequisite to being a muslim. She may sound or feel sincere however if she takes an oath of office on a Quran, she would concern to me, since it is more than a religion, in fact it is a political movement, a religious that hides this movement under a religious label since it calls for according to this book, no other religion is acceptable. and they must fight kaffar or non beleivers. According to the Quran nothing can change the verses. Not one wants to cause harm to her or muslim but we want to protect our Constitution and freedom and live without fear of the call for jihad that are found within the pages of a Quran.

    And by the way, any treaties with sharia based countries, could never be trusted, even if agreed too and signed as history shows, it is considered only as a pause in hostilites when weak and seen as oppression until they regroup if in a battle. It is ingenious but it involves deception and many are not aware.

  4. How is it … That if we know what their doing why are we allowihg it to happen ?? And how can they hold office in Congress or higher when they are so newly to our country ??

    • Easy for some people to know why? To understand completely. I suggest you get to know the one that is directing all this, influencing, etc. And that would be….satan. We’re told his time is short, and well…he’s moving faster.

  5. […]  Remember our First Muslim President Barack Hussein Obama. This Dalia is another Obama. What About Dalia? All of this is unfolding exactly how UTT predicted, in keeping with the enemy’s modus operandi, and with no thoughtful questions from people who claim to understand the threat. https://www.understandingthethreat.com/what-about-dalia/ […]

  6. Dalia al Aqidi reminds me of our former Muslim President BHO.

    • Ron Bass there are many like Dalia but your other male example of Dalia had all the connections, background, plenty of strategists to aid, a quick disposal of history, democratic promotion, marxist left and MB Islamic support, union support, he used excellent manipulation by omission with credibility of a Harvard law degree. Bit by bit this example was able to decieve with a handy Christian church but ended with complete declaration of “my muslim religion”, he spread information that Islam was a religion of peace, he knew it’s goals since he knows the Quran so it is a convoluted denial or fib to decribe it as peaceful since it’s complete legal system of sharia, he also would know the ties to the events when a pious person acts out jihad, to never reveal Islam, he knows that islam never will allow another government to control it, or abide by any treaty. He changed our national security to the CVE, which does not connect Islam and it’s commands to terror, as they invade and build mosques to take over America and keep Trump in the dark about the fact that no treaties can never hold. Consider Hamas , behavior and history. This is putting America at risk, as any money hamas recieves will be used improperly. Islamic jihad is not about money(unless it is to buy weapons and pay marytrs and jihadist) it is about Islam so we need the laws to prevent the roots to be built and borders prevent this spread that want conquest from within or from without. It actually is more dangerous from within. It is the deep state that colluded with this sediiton and the statement Trump will never be President ,so they harrass him for years with impeachment, control the misinformation campaign, so many of the media never let up on our current President with an insidious harrassment.

    • obummer!


    • You’re not alone, Jackie. I’m with ya, all the way on that! I don’t get it, of why people can’t open their eyes, on what islam IS…! Oh yes I can, satan’s influence. His time is short, we are told, and he is DEFINITELY moving faster. Candy, rainbows and unicorns, satan has shown those who believe that islam is just another “religion”….it’s so sad.
      Out of ALL the religions, can’t people see how this one has something in common with satan? That islam AND satan BOTH hate Christians and Jews, with a PASSION!! Or anything to do with the God of the bible? They both hate Israel…and must I go on?

  8. Islam is Islam . There is no moderate, reformed or radical versions , just Islam. To embrace any other notion , is to surrender the very things the Constitution guarantees in the US.

  9. Who needs more proofs that a Muslims don’t fit in any Western government?

    Muslims in Public Office
    It’s more than just about having three Muslims in Congress. I think symbolically it has great value, but I won’t rest until 2020 we have five more members of Congress; 2022 and 24, we have ten more Muslims in Congress. In 2030 we may have about 30, 35 Muslims in Congress. Then we’re talking about Madame Chair Rashida. We’re talking about Madame Chair Ilhan. Hell, we could be saying Speaker of the House Ilhan, Speaker of the House Rashida, Senator Rashida, Governor Ilhan, President Fatima, Vice President Aziza, Inshah’ Allah… Each and every one of us has a directive to represent Islam, in all of our imperfections, but to represent Islam and let the world know that Muslims are here to stay, and Muslims are a part of America. And we will, we will have a Muslim caucus that is sizable, that is formidable, and that is there for you.—U.S. Congressman Andre Carson (a Muslim convert), Indiana 7th District CAIR [Council on American-Islamic Relations] Community Congressional Reception, January 10, 2019 Questioning Islam or Muslims is not Islamophobia”

    — Islamic Doctrine versus the U.S. Constitution: The Dilemma for Muslim Public Officials by Stephen Kirby

  10. I’m so glad John published this article. As soon I saw the interview in FOX,I became skeptical. I don’t believe in moderate Muslims. I don’t care what names people call me. She sounds very patriotic…but what about her adherence to Koran and Sharia as a Muslim? I don’t swallow that. The Hijra and the different stages of Jihad make the whole things suspicious.
    So I called the GOP office in Minnesota ,of course I was told nobody was there to answer my question about Aqidi, and how she appeared now in Minnesota from nowhere and on and one. I called the National Committee of GOP, and let them know that it’s strategy,if one, is wrong as well that believing in a Koran and Sharia make Muslims unfit in Congress neither in any government agency ,military,law enforcement ,once they practice what is in the Koran on Sharia. As an immigrant myself from Cuba, I asked the clerk to let the Republican in the office to Read The Reliance of the Traveler and the Explanatory Memorandum from MB where the stages of Jihad are clear.
    This is a tremendous mistake of GOP, probably based on their ignorance about Islam and Jihad

  11. Odds good if she has left Islam, however…It surprises me that people arriving into the United States are qualified to run for either house of government if she has not been born into the U.S. or if she holds dual citizenship. She could be a good messenger or speaker, educator of the contrast of living under sharia or a Constitution…and could advise the many who do not know about counter state of sharia legal system that the jihadist want to implement which would be our demise. Or she could be another clever, harmless looking muslim, with a goal to implement a complete way of life under sharia by deception. indoctrination starts at birth under sharia that is part of the Islamic movement that has no part of our culture and is part of the plan to take America.

    Taking the oath of office with a Quran is an oath to work for our demise, if you read the obligations of the Quran. Ignorance of Islam is the method to accomplish their strategic goal of conquest.

    • Needed insight

    • She stated she’s a devout Muslim… don’t be a rube! Don’t be fooled!

    • Oh, surely your not saying that….”Migration without assimilation is invasion”, are you? Lol…don’t we know it, though! And surely Islam does not mean:

      “submission and conquest with subjugation. Or that Islam is authoritarian, pedophilic, supremacist, polygamous, subversive, kleptocratic, hostile to liberty and hostile to classic liberalism, violent, hair-triggered, theocratic, and abusive to non Muslims.

      Or that:

      There is no golden rule in islam, no love for humanity in islam and no righteousness or decency or mercy in islam. Islam teaches, promotes, commands and authorizes hate, beheading, stoning, religious genocide, sexual slavery, child marriage, terrorism, discrimination, religious supremacism, violent jihadist activities and hateful warmongering. Islam is an evil, satanic cult full of hatred, ignorance, spiritual darkness, violence, crucifixions, burning-people-alive, amputations, stoning, beheading, flogging pple to death, suicide-bombing, wickedness, mass murder, honor-killing, throwing homosexuals off high buildings, barbarism, cruelty, extreme brutality, wickedness, supremacism, bloodshed, savagery, assassinations, wife-beating, instant divorces, false beliefs, demonic practices, cruel halal slaughter, female genital mutilation, jealousy and death. islam and those who practice its evil, satanic teachings are the purest forms of evil on planet Earth!

      Or that:

      Islam can never reform, it is told adinfinitum that the Koran is the perfect word of Allah (god) and that Mohammed is the final messenger.. Therefore there can be no ‘new’ prophet to take Islam into a more humane stance…. It is what it is, A giant killing machine that poses as a religion.

      As for Islamphobia:

      Some would explain Islamophobia as simply referring to the fear of Islam. Dennis Prager puts it differently. He claims that Islamophobia has one purpose. That is, “to suppress any criticism, legitimate or not, of Islam.”


      Many religious texts have violent verses, but in Islam people still live by them.

      Just a few of the things about Islam….I think about, and much much more! But I don’t know about this woman. I think this is the first time I’ve heard about her. So could you tell me…did she take an oath on the koran??

  12. People beware


  14. Possible sleeper. Just something to think about folks.

  15. John – I’ve always appreciated your reporting and research. But your bit on Dalia leaves me cold, and I just didn’t like it one bit. Illian Omar has a track record and her speeches speak for themselves, leaving a justifiable reason to criticize. But the tactic of leaving a question mark over someone with absolutely no evidence of ‘misbehavior’ is a common smear tactic used by the left. ‘Guilt by association’ may be legitimate, but not guilt because of where one is born. If that’s all you have on this woman, you owe her an apology. If you do have something else, share it or keep quiet until you do.

    • Sam, thanks for your comments. This war is not a matter of terrorism, nor do a statement of facts always apply as in criminal matters. If you follow our work, you know this war is primarily fought in the Information Battlespace and Counterintelligence and Espionage are primary tools. In CI work, it is the modus operandi and pattern of behavior we are looking for. UTT predicted exactly what was coming in the 2020 elections because we understand this threat better than anyone else. Dalia Aqidi fits into the Islamic Movement’s mold perfectly. Since 9/11, all of the “moderates” UTT has skylighted as being agents for the Islamic Movement have turned out to be helping our enemies. No one else has this track record.

    • I don’t know anything about this woman….yet. BUT….have you heard anything about her being AGAINST islam? Against anti-semitism? What proof or evidence do YOU bring to the table, that makes you think she’s a normal, truthful, all American, God-lovin’, anti-100 verses in the koran, that says to kill the infidel, Betty Crocker type, woman? You didn’t happen to mention in your comment, why YOU support her, or WHY you think she could do so right, and be so right for our government, for our country, etc? And so, enquiring minds wanna know? What has your panties in a wad, about her, that you would fight so diligently for her, and give her the benefit of a doubt? We’re waiting….
