    And bigoted against Omar. She can't speak against AIPAC because she's Muslim but Thomas Friedman can. In the New York Times back in 2011, Friedman wrote:
    No one called Friedman an anti Semite for saying essentially the same thing Ilhan Omar did. And everyone knew it was true just as they do now. Phony outrage it is. And AOC deserves sharp rebuke for throwing her friend Ilhan Omar under the bus. She is a coward. Bernie as well.

    He's zionist, he's allowed to speak to Jewish affairs without attracting the pesky fake accusation.

    It's zionism they protect, not Jewishness, which is the vehicle the zionist uses when they practice their supremacist ideology right in everyone's faces.

    I have to disagree with you on this one. Omar has made anti-semitic remarks. I was glad to see Muslims elected to Congress but I was very disappointed in her lack of temperament and hateful comments. She represents Muslims poorly.

    What is there to be outraged about? She's a bigot. She was elected to the US Congress. She's like so many other democrats that make it into office. Do you suppose that somehow she's special?

    It's interesting that the US government can apply sanctions against any and all around the globe, but the US citizen may not even advocate for sanctions against Israel. Nor may he, under legislation proposed by Marco Rubio, even talk about the crimes of Israel with language advocating boycott or divestiture of Israeli investments.

    RIP First Amendment.

    Our taxes pay for Israel's crimes. That gives us plenty of rights.

    Just Muslims??

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo opened a speech in Cairo on Thursday by referring to the Bible that he keeps in his small, wood-panelled office on the seventh floor of the State Department. “This trip is especially meaningful to me as an evangelical Christian,” he began, in a predominantly Muslim country that accounts for almost a quarter of the population in the Arab world. Only ten per cent of Egypt’s hundred million people are Christian. “I keep a Bible open on my desk to remind me of God and His Word, and The Truth.” (The State Department transcript provided this capitalization.)

    I didn't watch the video but I have heard a few people debating this. Apparently the word she used which is apparently an anti-Semite trope for those who know about it, was actually her talking about some rappers or something (same word). I also saw two non Zionists Jews discussing it. Neither of them thought she was antisemetic and the lady said that the Democratic Party had decided that they wanted to make her quiet. She believed it was nothing to do with antisemitism and that if they had not got her with this they would have got her with something else. The intent was to make her quiet and she had to make sure this did not work. Sorry I do not remember the names. They were American and first time I had heard of them.

    ….and then Trump was wanting her sacked which just shows the oppression there is in US politics at this time.....in both parties.

    That's not what I replied to I replied to your statement ... "Muslim politicians are not capable of governing without their religious beliefs at the forefront".

    Pompeo saying "I keep a Bible open on my desk to remind me of God and His Word, and The Truth” is keeping his religious views at the forefront.

    Didn't really think that something so obvious would need to be broken down.

    Neither are those of the Judeo-Christian persuasion. Congress has a chaplain, and many (most) city councils around the country open their proceedings with prayers to religious gods.
