First Palestinian-American Congresswoman Will Be Sworn In On Quran (Details)

America’s first Palestinian-American Congresswoman will be sworn in on a Quran today.

Her name is Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from Michigan.

No joke.

From Daily Wire:

The Quran owned by former President Thomas Jefferson will be the book upon which newly-elected Muslim congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), is sworn into the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday.

According to The Hill, Tlaib will be making history this Thursday as the first Palestinian-American woman to join the lower chamber of Congress. She also joins alongside recently-elected Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to be one of the first two Muslim congresswomen.

Translated into English by George Sale in 1734, Jefferson’s copy of the Quran resides in the Library of Congress, according to the Detroit Free Press. Tlaib told the Free Press that she chose Jefferson’s Quran to highlight that Islam goes back a long way in the United States.

Both Tlaib and fellow newly-elected Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have “extreme anti-Israel views.”

After her win, Tlaib celebrated with the Palestinian flag.

In the video, Tlaib delivered a victory speech in which she acknowledged her family watching from abroad in the Palestinian Authority-administered West Bank. She dedicated her victory, in part, to the Palestinian cause: “A lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian,” she said.

This was utterly absurd unless Tlaib won a race in Palestine – if she’d be even have allowed to run for office.

Check out the words of Ilhan Omar, who says Dems will “transform” our democracy:

Omar: “And so we are just really excited to get to work and make sure that the words we said on the campaign trail transform into legislation that will transform our government and our democracy.

Guess who else vowed to “transform” our democracy:

In 2012, Omar tweeted about the “evil doings of Israel.”

She stuck by her words.

The tweet was dug up in 2018.

Omar’s response when forced to defend:

Omar defended herself against charges of anti-Semitism in a July interview with ABC News, saying: “These accusations are without merit. They are rooted in bigotry toward a belief about what Muslims are stereotyped to believe.”

The oft-repeated notion that Israel is an “apartheid” nation is incorrect on multiple grounds. Perhaps the most succinct refutation of this idea comes from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which writes:
