Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to be an embarrassment and a disgrace for me and other American Muslims with her outrageous, ignorant, anti-Semitic and now anti-American comments. She projects a distorted and patently Islamist interpretation of Islam – a religion that in reality stands for the values...
Sadly, Omar gives millions of Americans a false impression of what Islam is and what we Muslims believe and stand for. While she denounces prejudice against Muslims, her aberrant views on Islam fuel prejudice against me and my coreligionists by distorting who we are while defaming and dishonoring the great monotheism of Islam.
Mainstream Muslims need to speak out because this woman is being held up as their representative. Muslims need to be clear that this is not the case.
