As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., defended herself and fellow freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., after the recent backlash to Tlaib’s comments about the Holocaust and the Palestinians’ response to Jewish people moving to the region.
“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. I think we are seeing what happens when people really see these kind of attacks for what they are. It is designed to silence, sideline, and sort of almost eliminate public voice of Muslims from the public discourse,” Omar said Tuesday on MSNBC.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’m excited we have an opportunity to build alliances and push back and fight this attempt to marginalize our community’s voice,” she said.
