(Gateway Pundit) – This is nuts. Anti-Semitic Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar retweeted a tweet that claimed Jesus Christ was a “Palestinian.”
Jesus Christ, of course, was born into a Jewish family in Bethlehem.
Leftists love to rewrite history.
Pamela Geller and The Jewish Journal reported:
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate and director of Global Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and The New York Times for promulgating the notion that Jesus was a Palestinian.
Omar re-tweeted an April 20 tweet from Omar Suleiman, an adjunct professor for Islamic Studies at Southern Methodist University, who said a Palestinian relative told him regarding the “Christian right”: “Don’t they know we’re Christian too? Do they even consider us human? Don’t they know Jesus was a Palestinian?”
Similarly, an April 19 New York Times piece focusing on various depictions of Jesus Christ’s skin color stated, “Jesus, born in Bethlehem, was most likely a Palestinian man with dark skin.”
As Pamela Geller pointed out — the name “Palestine” wasn’t even applied to the land of Judea by the Romans until 100 years after Jesus.
Flashback: Omar Fundraises With Group Employing Islamist Who Wished Hitler Killed More Jews
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the organization that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was fundraising with when she made her infamous comments downplaying the Sept. 11 attacks, employs a staffer who wishes “Hitler was alive to f**k up the Jewish [people]” and add to the six million murders the genocidal dictator accumulated during the Holocaust, according to a report.
CAIR Minnesota’s Government Affairs Coordinator Abubakar Osman, also known by his alias Sadiqq Abu Osman, was profiled for making the following hate-filled genocidal comment about the Jews:
Islamist Watch captured an image of the Facebook post before it was deleted. Other research compiled by the organization shows a troubling amount of Islamic radicalism operating out of Omar’s Minnesota stronghold.
Jaylani Hussein, head of CAIR’s Minnesota branch, is getting appointed to the state’s anti-Semitism task force despite the fact that he refused to denounce Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Democrats are pushing radical Muslims into positions of power in Minnesota to satisfy their new third-world voting bloc.
Islamic activist Asad Zaman was invited as a guest of honor to the State of the State Address by Democratic Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, despite the fact that he is a Hamas sympathizer who distributes anti-Jewish propaganda. Zaman also heads the Muslim American Society, an organization classified by the United Arab Emirates as a terrorist group alongside Al Queda and ISIS. He will be serving on the state’s anti-Semitism task force as well.
Omar’s speech issued to the CAIR audience was given with the swagger of a budding conquistador, ready to start openly subjugating a people on the verge of defeat.
“Many people expect, expect our community to feel like it needs to hide every time something happens,” Omar said of her fellow Muslims while appearing at the CAIR function. “But repeatedly we have shown them that we are not to be bullied. We are not to be threatened. We are not to be terrorized. We are strong and resilient, and we will always show up to be ourselves because we know we have a right to a dignified existence and a dignified life.”
Omar made it clear that her people are here to push their agenda and get in the faces of long-standing Americans if they don’t like it.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange, that I am going to try to make myself look pleasant. You have to say this person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it. I am going to talk to them and ask them why. Because that is a right you have,” she added.
Radical Islam has arrived in America, and it is ready to govern. Unless ‘America First’ immigration policies are put into place and done so quickly, the entirety of America will look like Minnedishu before long.
