Ilhan Omar uses the classic Islamic lie

Reader comment on item: Hungary: Not "Submitting to Islam"
in response to reader comment: Ilhan's appointment to the house foreign affairs committee

Dear Readers, I do not want the Islamists to get away with their lies. Today, the US Congress voted to oust Ilhan Omar from the House foreign affairs committee. Ms Omar was rightly punished for her hateful views toward Israel.

In her speech, prior to the vote, Ms Omar repeated a lie that is used so often by Muslims. Ms Omar claimed that she was a woman of color and the vote against her was a vote against all women of color. Ms Omar forgot to mention that not all women of color hated Jews like she did.

Omar was not punished for being a woman of color. She was punished for being a hater of people for their faith.

Many American Muslims use exact same misguided logic when they call themselves brown and claim that they suffer racism for the color of their skin. Muslims of America forget to mention that most brown people of the US do not even mention the color of their skin in their discourses and, unlike Muslims, are not cry-babies.

Muslim apologists should stop their misrepresentations. Or, else they might be called out by the lovers of truth.
