Washington - Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. and Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., joined in an appeal to confront a rise in deadly expressions of white nationalism.

“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,” the lawmakers wrote in an op-ed appearing Tuesday on CNN’s website. “We cannot allow those who seek to divide and intimidate us to succeed. Whatever our differences, our two communities, Muslim and Jewish, must come together to confront the twin evils of anti-Semitic and Islamophobic violence.”

They referred to two deadly shootings at U.S. synagogues, last year in Pittsburgh and last month in Poway, California, a rash of mosque arsons, and the mass killing earlier this year at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

They faulted the Trump administration for downplaying the threat, noting President Donald Trump’s equivocation in 2017 at condemning a deadly neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia, and his cutting of funds for a number of federal programs tracking right-wing extremists.

“Addressing this hate should not be a partisan issue in the United States,” the congresswomen said. “Yet the current administration has manifestly failed to address its rise.”

Omar has come under fire for a number of statements that Republicans and some Democrats have said invoked anti-Semitic slanders. She has apologized for some, but not all, of them.

Jan Schakowsky is Jewish, but she is an extreme left radical who refuses to criticize anti-Semitism that come from Democrats or other left-wing groups. Here Jan Schakowsky is joining with a known anti-Semite, Omar, who regularly makes anti-Semitic comments and supports extremists, even Islamic terrorists. Worse than useless. As we just read in Kedoshim, Vayikrah 19:17, "You shall not hate your brother in your heart, (only then, say mifurshim, can) "you rebuke your fellow.."

sounds more like the Jewish is erev rav then Jewish. First they came for the Jews and no one said anything, then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.

Hashomer, remember that Muslim troops led and encouraged by the Mufti where in the SS and joined Hitler yemach shemoi in the Shoah. When, with her tznius, she comes to kill you, what then? What is her tznius worth to you then? What is the tznius of suicide bombers in Eretz Yisrael worth for the Yidden they kill?

You wouldn't miss an opportunity, would you. I believe you suffer from a severe case of obsessive compulsive disorder. We are discussing an elected official who, in her official position, supports terror against Jews, anywhere, regardless of their beliefs. She wouldn't interview you to ascertain your opposition towards Zionism before she would advocate killing you in cold blood. She is, at the very best, a tzniusdige terrorist. Take your meds. Your obsession might be more severe than OCD.
