Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) urged Muslim and Jewish Americans to come together confront the threat of white nationalist violence in an editorial for CNN Tuesday.

Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress, and Schakowsky, who is Jewish, cite the recent example of a gunman accused of killing Lori Gilbert Kaye at San Diego’s Chabad of Poway synagogue, who is also suspected in the arson of a nearby mosque and is said to have been inspired by the killing of 50 worshippers at a New Zealand mosque in March.

The article goes on to state the following:

“As a Muslim American and a Jewish American elected to the United States Congress, we can no longer sit silently as terror strikes our communities. We cannot allow those who seek to divide and intimidate us to succeed,” Omar and Schakowsky write. “Whatever our differences, our two communities, Muslim and Jewish, must come together to confront the twin evils of anti-Semitic and Islamophobic violence.”

The article also states the following:

In their piece, the congresswomen cite data indicating anti-Semitic assaults increased more than 100 percent in 2018 from the previous year, according to the Anti-Defamation League, which also logged nearly 1,900 incidents of anti-Semitic assault, vandalism or harassment, making it the highest year since it began tracking such incidents in 1979.

Anti-Muslim incidents, meanwhile, increased to 300 in 2017 from 260 the year before, and the Council on American Islamic Relations found 2,600 incidents of anti-Muslim bias.

“White nationalists win when our two communities are divided. They seek to exploit our divisions and grievances to further an agenda of hate. But we know that when are united, we are stronger,” they write. “We know this because in our own communities, Jewish and Muslim constituents have joined hands in solidarity and denounced these hate-filled massacres.”

    Omar and Tlaib and the rest of the democrats that haven’t come out and denounced the hate and anti semitism spouted and condoned it is what is driving this. The increase against Muslims may not be real hate crimes but because they are more than happy to run to not just the police but the media and lawyers then the PC apologists rally round and claim it was hatred for Muslims that caused the attack. I don’t understand how a Jewish Congresswoman could stand beside someone that wants Israel erased from the face of the earth and all the Jewish people dead to!

    Fed up with their arrogance, stupidity and childish behavior. Racism is taught. Everyone of you Democrats need to think before you speak. Also, those of you who hate this country. Go back to your homeland and make changes in your countries.

    Omar needs to learn history as she is quiet ignorant. We all now know your truths Omar. Deceit and lies make a propagandist stick out like a sore thumb. It isn’t White Nationalism causing the problem since skin color has nothing to do with ones character. If that were the case, skin color predicting hate, I would say the Muslim religion is more responsible for killing non-Muslims and white skinned people or gays or anyone different from your ideology of religion, you hypocrite.

    Muslims have and are killing more people than any other on this Earth, look at the numbers they are destroying., in Africa alone they are wiping out Christianity, they don’t care who they kill especially if you are a Christian.
    The Facts are there at their hatred for Jews and it’s been there since time began and still is the same.
    What we are seeing here is very dangerous and we all had better be Aware of the evil that is taking place within the Democratic Party.
    I’m afraid if this doesn’t stop from these evil people we are going to be in a fight for our freedom and worse.
    They are actively stirring up Hatred against White People who have done absolutely nothing to them except protest about their evil Anti Semitism and Rhetoric.
