Congratulations to the first Muslim women elected to Congress, Rashida Tlaib (who wrapped herself in a Palestinian flag on election night) and Somali-born Ilhan Omar, (who allegedly married and divorced her brother to help him illegally gain entry to the US, which would make her guilty of immigration/marriage fraud and bigamy.) The two women have just been sworn in as members of the 116th U.S. Congress. Here is the oath of office they were required to take.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

We wish them every success as newly-elected American leaders. But because our politically correct, left-leaning media will likely never ask, we feel obligated to pose several questions for these new congresspersons. I am confident they will want their fellow Americans to know how they stand on a number of important issues.

It’s already clear how they feel about America’s close ally, Israel. During her campaign, Omar said she did not support the hateful Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), describing it as counterproductive to peace. Immediately after the election, she flipped. Her campaign office told Muslim Girl she supports BDS despite “reservations on the effectiveness of the movement in accomplishing a lasting solution.”

During her time in the Minnesota legislature, Omar referred to Israel as “the apartheid Israeli regime.” She recommended that the University of Minnesota divest from Israel bonds and criticized a law intended to prohibit the BDS movement. In a 2012 tweet, she said Israel had “hypnotized the world” and was guilty of “evil doings.” Omar accused journalists of Islamophobia for reporting her statements.

As for Tlaib, she openly supports punishing Israel economically in order to bring attention to issues of alleged racism and international human rights violations. “I personally support the BDS movement,” she said. Tlaib, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, supports a one-state solution: It has to be one state,” she has said; two states for two peoples “does not work.” She opposes United States aid to Israel.

I suppose these positions are somewhat predictable, but what about other more fundamental issues that the media won’t touch?

One of the nastiest aspects of Islam is the tradition in some places of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), a gruesome practice used to suppress female sexuality, typically found in African or fundamentalist Islamic societies. Genital mutilation of girls involves cutting out all or part of the clitoris. This disgusting practice is a common cultural or religious practice in some African countries including Sudan, Egypt, and Ilhan Omar’s country of birth, Somalia, although it has been outlawed by several international treaties. Even so, in 2017 two Muslim doctors in Michigan were arrested for carrying out this barbaric religious “rite of passage.”
