For weeks now, we have been clamoring for the Muslim community to decry the words of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) and it has finally happened.
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, the President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), severely criticized Rep. Omar for her ignorant comments regarding the recent attacks in the Middle East.
Once again, Rep. Omar got herself into trouble with a tweet that exposed how little she actually knows about Israel situation with Palestine.
Over the weekend, a huge attack was instigated against Israel when Palestinian forces lobbed more than 250 rockets at Israel.
Israel responded with a volley of rockets itself, which reportedly killed at least six civilians.
Omar chose to not only ignore Palestine’s role in this but also ignored the fact this attack took place during a cease-fire and while Egypt was continuing to try to get both parties to sit down to work out a permanent peace agreement.
How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?
The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.

It did not take long for Omar to face criticism over her comments.
While there was some very notable pushback, the voice we found to be the most interesting was that of Dr. Jasser.
Dr. Jasser stated, “She [Rep. Omar] needs to look at her own talking points.
“If she truly is about universal human rights and humanitarianism, there’s no cycle.
“This is started and can be ended by Hamas’ terrorist actions.”
He further stated, “My question to her is if she cares about Muslim civil rights and cares about humanitarianism, then why doesn’t she call for them to stop the violence?
“Why doesn’t she call for an Arab Spring in the Palestinian areas against their tyrants which are Hamas and call for a new peaceful leadership?”
As stated, Dr. Jasser was not the only prominent figure to call out Omar for her ridiculous statements.
Both Donald Trump, Jr. and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley also went after her on Twitter…
It’s deeply troubling that we’ve reached the point where no one is shocked when sitting members of congress, like @IlhanMN & @RashidaTlaib, side with Hamas terrorists over Israel. By remaining silent, democrat leadership & presidential candidates are endorsing this insanity. https://t.co/A8STX8WqLf

This is just the latest in a long line of gaffes by the anti-Semitic congresswoman from Minnesota.
If the Muslim community of Minnesota has any sense at all, they will pick someone else to represent them come election day.
Clearly, Ilhan Omar is hurting their case far more than she is helping it.
