U.S. representative for Minnesota’s 5th congeressional district, Somali -American politician Ilhan Omar has stirred several contraversies recently. The latest was her fued with fellow Democrat Nita Lowey over support of Israel and alleged anti-Semitic comments. Ilhan’s controversial comments has prompted the Anti-Defamation League to send a letter urging Democratic leaders to consider a resolution condemning Omar’s remarks. That vote will apparently happen tomorrow in the Congress.
In view of the above, I wrote a thread on Twitter summing my views as a liberal Muslim on Ilhan Omar and why I find her views disturbing. I herewith share it with my followers who are not on Twitter.
