Trashida & Ilhan Omar
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) claims that people who criticize her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) over their anti-Semitic beliefs are engaged in a conspiracy theory against them to "eliminate public voice of Muslims"

It would add Eid Al-Fitr at the end of Ramadan and the four-day-long celebration of Eid Al-Adha to the list of federally recognized holidays, potentially granting reasons for banks, schools, and other businesses to remain closed for five additional days per year.
The women justified their work as making America more inclusive of it’s Muslim-American population and would allow for regular Salah time breaks for school children and workers as well as a designated area in public businesses where Muslims could perform the five daily prayers plus the Friday prayer, unmolested.
The House of Representatives Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, is reviewing the legislation and determining if he can get the votes to pass the bill.
However, it appears they are threatening court action if Hoyer should not meet their demands on the grounds of religious discrimination.
It’s easy to say they should have stayed in their Muslim homelands, but that’s not how Mohammedans roll. They are commanded to make the world Islamic, and these two will play their part, come hell or high water.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said President Donald Trump and other right-wing politicians and pundits’ attacks on her and fellow Muslim congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) are meant to “silence” Muslims.
“I tell my sister Rashida Tlaib that her and I have the strength to endure any of the mischaracterization or efforts to distort and vilify and mischaracterize our message,” Omar said Tuesday in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.
She added that such attacks were “designed to silence, sideline and almost eliminate [the] voice of Muslims from the public discourse.”
Omar and Tlaib, who made history in November as the nation’s first Muslim women elected to Congress, have come under repeated attacks from the president, right-leaning pundits and lawmakers since they took office earlier this year.
It’s the PuffHo, people. It doesn’t get any more politically distorted. “Some painted as anti-Semitic”- really? That would be a gross understatement. These Islamic savages suck the Jew-hatred in with the mothers milk.
Earlier on Tuesday, Omar published a joint op-ed in CNN with Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), who is Jewish, urging the country to confront the threat of white nationalism.
