Humanity Denied: What Is Missing from the Omar, Tlaib Story
Nach viel Hin und Her reist die US-Kongressabgeordnete Rashida Tlaib nun doch nicht ins Westjordanland - trotz einer gerade erst erstrittenen Einreiseerlaubnis. Israel erklärte, Tlaib habe nur provozieren wollen.

Israel hat zunächst die Einreise der US-Abgeordneten Tlaib und Omar verboten. Grund ist deren Unterstützung für eine anti-israelische Bewegung. Doch eine der beiden darf nun doch kommen - aus "humanitären Gründen".

Mit rassistischen Attacken auf dunkelhäutige Politikerinnen sorgte Donald Trump jüngst für viel Empörung. Und er denkt wohl mit Blick auf die Wahl 2020 gar nicht daran, damit aufzuhören.

Die jüngste US-Rassismus-Debatte zeigt: Mit Fremdenfeindlichkeit lässt sich Stimmung machen. Zwar hat Präsident Trump die Methode nicht erfunden. Er weiß sich das Thema aber zunutze zu machen, meint Oliver Sallet.

On the viral meme that distorts Quran verses (in relation to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN))

The interpretations of nine verses from the Quran that the meme includes were made by one of the founders of the site, who describes himself as a freelance writer, not a religious scholar. In total, he had offered 36 reinterpretations of verses from the Quran. Several of them have been repeated in online publications since then, illustrating how misinformation persists for years and spreads online.

Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was persecuted, at least in part, for his religious message and had to flee his home in Mecca for the nearby town of Medina. There, he and his followers remained in conflict with the Meccans, and those struggles are referenced in the Quran.

Meme Distorts Quran Verses

«Apply this country's virtues equally upon every nation in this world», by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN)

I fled my home country of Somalia when I was 8 years old from a conflict that the United States later engaged in. I spent the next four years in a refugee camp in Kenya, where I experienced and witnessed unspeakable suffering from those who, like me, had lost everything because of war.

At a time when we spend more on our military than the next seven countries combined, our global armed presence is often the most immediate contact people in the developing world have with the United States. National security experts across the political spectrum agree that we don’t need nearly 800 military bases outside the United States to keep our country safe.

It must be hard for a true US-American to be citizen to a country that is more interested in either destroying or intervening in a country militarily, than taking care of its people's education. What kind of country is this? I don't know, and I guess that there is no Republican... Show more...

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN) claims Israel to be historical homeland of Palestine

The Minnesota representative said that “without a state, the Palestinian people live in a state of permanent refugeehood and displacement. This, too, is a refugee crisis, and they, too, deserve freedom and dignity.”

“I support a two-state solution, with internationally recognized borders, which allows for both Israelis and Palestinians to have their own sanctuaries and self-determination,” she wrote. “This has been official bipartisan US policy across two decades and has been supported by each of the most recent Israeli and Palestinian leaders, as well as the consensus of the Israeli security establishment.”

“When I criticize certain Israeli government actions in Gaza or settlements in the West Bank, it is because I believe these actions not only threaten the possibility of peace in the region – they also threaten the United States’ own national security interests,” Omar said.

Jeanine Pirro expelled from Fox News after islamophobic comments

Pirro has not said anything about taking a vacation. She hasn't tweeted since last weekend. All together, the circumstances suggest that she has been suspended by Fox in the wake of her comments.

At the same time, there is no indication that she has been fired from Fox. She is one of the network's highest-rated weekend hosts, well known for her vehement defenses of President Drumpf and attacks against his perceived enemies.

Among many other critics, a Fox News staffer pushed back on Pirro's statements. Hufsa Kamal, a producer on Fox's "Special Report with Bret Baier," tweeted: "@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren't American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself."

I actually wonder how a man like him, of his belief, is able to work for this channel. I mean, among this one incident that included islamophobia, this entire broadcasting serv... Show more...

THE ANGRY ARAB: Why Ilhan Omar is a Dangerous Woman for the US

Trump welcomes Jexodus, encourages Democratic Jews to turn Republican

Drumpf has asserted that though Jewish Americans tended to be reliable Democratic voters, the party’s lurch to the left in recent years, as evidenced by its splintering over Omar’s comments, has alienated Jewish voters.

A website for Jexodus only lists a spokesperson, model and former Drumpf campaign staffer Elizabeth Pipko, and no other staff. A description on the website says that Jewish millennials are "tired of living in bondage to leftist politics" and accuses Democrats of taking the Jewish vote for granted.

The president, who himself has been accused of promoting anti-Semitic stereotypes and not thoroughly denouncing hate speech, has positioned himself as a champion of Israel throughout his presidency.

Fox News rebukes its host Jeanine Pirro for comment on Omar

"We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro's comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar," Fox News said in a statement. "They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly."

Pirro suggested on her Saturday show that Omar's beliefs about Israel stem from her religion. Omar is Somali-American and a practicing Muslim who wears a religious head-covering called a hijab.

Funnily, there are Muslims in her district who state that she doesn't represent Islam, which sounds about right. I mean, no-one would ever say that David Koresh represented American christianity. It's simply not true, but what else was to be expected from Fox News' hosts? I mean, you can read it later on, I still have an article about Tucker Carlson remaining in my bookmark lsit.

On the people in Minnesota's 5th district, which elected Ilhan Omar

"Anti-Semitism is real in this country," Mohamed Omar, who is not related to the freshman Democrat, said in an interview in a private study, as children nearby hurried to Friday afternoon prayers. But the controversy, he said, is a "distraction."

Rabbi Marcia Zimmerman of Temple Israel, a Reform Jewish congregation that is the oldest synagogue in this city, said many of members of her community have called her over the last month to say they were troubled by Omar's comments.

But, the rabbi added, "in my mind, tweets are not the way that you communicate complex, complicated issues when you are a member of Congress."

This is a sentence that is able to refer to so many topics that nowadays are conversed and discussed via Twitter. 280 letters per message are simply not how you lead a decent conversation on a complex topic.

US Democrats fail to cope with the Ilhan Omar case

McCain, a co-host of "The View," ripped Omar for sending out the message, calling it “trash” and “beneath a sitting member of Congress.”

“Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have at times dared to question our foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them for it,” Ocasio-Cortez’s team wrote in a fundraising email that also referenced freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who, along with Omar, is one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress.

“On one end, we know that there are members who are going to be free. They're going to candid. They're going to be fearless in their approach to getting their message out,” he said. “There are other folks who are going to be more measured and pragmatic, and I don't think we're in a place to condemn one methodology over the other.”

Ilhan Omar: Leftist Jewish groups have stuck with the congresswoman.

h/t @Valkyrie
Alongside the intraparty squabble, Jewish American leftists have emerged as a key source of support for Omar, writing a flurry of op-eds, petitions, and social media posts with the hashtag #IStandWithIlhan. Progressive Jewish organizations like Jewish Voice for Peace, IfNotNow, and Jews for Racial & Economic Justice are responding to the Omar flap by emphasizing the difference between anti-Semitism and legitimate critiques of Israel and pivoting to discuss the threat of white supremacy to all minority groups. (Disclosure: I was a summer intern at Jewish Voice for Peace in college and am still a member.) This source of full-throated support of the congresswoman has the potential to shift the nat

On Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN) and the Republicans

Where a few weeks ago, cable television networks cut to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s live commentary about Drumpf and Russia, this week they carried her uncomfortable words about seething fellow Democrats.

As Pelosi and Democratic leadership have come under pressure to rebuke Omar, for example, three of the party’s presidential candidates — Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — pushed back. The result was a watered-down resolution introduced on Thursday that did not single out Omar by name and condemned both “anti-Semitism” and “anti-Muslim discrimination.”

White House aides are in the midst of a pressure campaign pushing GOP lawmakers not to support a resolution set to rebuke the president for invoking his national emergency powers to build his border wall. Next week, Drumpf is likely to quash the measure with the first veto of his presidency.

Ilhan Omar’s Denunciation of #Israel Lobby is Not Anti-Semitism

Phyllis Bennis :
She is being attacked by members of her own party for anti-Semitism that she never expressed; for supposed anti-Jewish prejudice that she never held; and for hatred of Jews that she doesn’t hold and never said
