I recall a certain past president (who will remain nameless but whose initials were BHO) who I remember having the nickname “liar-in-chief” due to the enormous amount of untruths that flowed from his lips. I’m beginning to wonder if Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are trying to see if they can surpass his lying proclivities!
Not only are they outright liars about the mission they had intended to carry out if they had been allowed to visit Israel (under the guise of visiting Rashida’s grandma), they are trying to get us to believe that President Trump is the one stirring the pot, trying to make Muslims and American Jews go to war with each other.
Monday at a press conference in St. Paul, MN, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said President Donald Trump tweeting that she and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) should be denied entry into Israel was the president attempting to “pit Muslims and Jewish Americans against each other.”
Omar said, “We know Donald Trump would love nothing more than to use this issue to pit Muslims and Jewish Americans against each other. The Muslim community and the Jewish community are being othered and made into the boogeyman by this administration. But as we will hear today, people of all different fates are coming together to speak up against the status quo in the region. I’m grateful for the solidarity shown by so many of my colleagues in Congress. I understand and appreciate the calls for members to avoid traveling to Israel and until Rashida and I are allowed to go without condition.”
Isn’t it getting ridiculous? Anyone with half their brain tied behind their backs can listen to them, then examine the facts of history and figure out that the aggression has been one-sided for centuries! The Jews have had to fight to defend every inch of their tiny territory from outside occupation, as well they should. It’s their home, and they should be afforded the same right to a peaceful life as anybody else on the planet. It is in no way a situation that started due to President Trump.
