Two Muslim women were elected to Congress in November.
One Democrat is from Minnesota, the other from Michigan.
Both are vehemently anti-Israel and don’t even attempt to hide it.
Check out the words of Ilhan Omar, who says Dems will “transform” our democracy…
Omar said it’s a priority for Democrats to be “reshaping our government,” adding, “And that we are re-energizing the American public to again believe in a system that was built for them, and be transformed by them, as well.
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 earlier this year.
Omar’s response when forced to defend:
Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness. https://t.co/SvEXjlxlEN

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:
After her win in November, Rashida Tlaib celebrated with the Palestinian flag.
Democrat Rashida Tlaib danced wearing the Palestinian flag at a victory party in Tuesday evening, after she won a largely uncontested race for the open seat in Michigan’s heavily Democratic 13th congressional district.
Tlaib is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress on Tuesday, along with Ilhan Omar, who replaced outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress. Both Tlaib and Omar have extreme anti-Israel views. Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress.
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.
Journalist Julia Ioffe is blaming the Trump administration for moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem for the massacre that occurred in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday morning.
11 people were killed by deranged maniac Robert Bowers, an anti-Semite.
And a word to my fellow American Jews: This president makes this possible. Here. Where you live. I hope the embassy move over there, where you don’t live was worth it.

* This is some sick, disgusting victim-blaming right here, which plays on classic antisemitic tropes about dual loyalties.
* The vast majority of her fellow American Jews didn’t even vote for Trump, and the shooter tweeted against Jews for holding opinions opposite to Trump https://t.co/pE6f8F2XxA

The opportunistic Left will always exploit tragedy to push vindictive, ignorant and hateful political rhetoric.

The worst take of an already horrific day. This take is straight from the anti-Semite masquerading as anti-Zionist playbook—“The Jews of America must pay for Israel.” Horrific. Just stop. https://t.co/GrBPOWIfSY

This is a twisted sick uninformed hateful comment. To suggest that there is any link between a white supremacist opening fire on Shabbat synagogue goers and the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem is nutso. And promotes hate. https://t.co/NiJjLnuFVO
