Attacks Meant to 'Silence' First Two Muslim Women in Congress Won't Succeed, Says Rep. Ilhan Omar

Eoin Higgins, staff writer

For the first time in American history, there are two female Muslim members of Congress—and the relentless attacks on the pair from the right are designed to "silence" them.

"We cannot allow those who seek to divide and intimidate us to succeed" — Rep. Ilhan Omar

That was the read from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), referring to efforts from President Donald Trump and other members of the Republican Party, both in Washington and in the media, to portray her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) as anti-Semites.

Absolutely agree with you on that! The progressive women elected to Congress in 2018 are the very best thing that I have seen happen in Congress in my 59 years.
