Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and multiple other Democratic legislators are urging Secretary of State Antony Blinken to establish a position for someone to combat Islamophobia.
Never mind how often worshippers of Islam attack Christians, Catholics, and Jews. They are entitled just like BLM and antifa are allowed to riot to their heart’s content.
The lawmakers state in a letter to Blinken:
“As part of our commitment to international religious freedom and human rights, we must recognize Islamophobia as a pattern that is repeating in nearly every corner of the globe. It is past time for the United States to stand firmly in favor of religious freedom for all, and to give the global problem of Islamophobia the attention and prioritization it deserves.”
“In addition to state-sponsored policies of Islamophobia, we have seen a disturbing rise in incidents of Islamophobic violence committed by individuals connected to larger transnational white supremacist networks, including but by no means limited to the mosque shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2019 and the recent murder of a Muslim Canadian family in London, Ontario.”
Omar and The Squad are members in good standing with the House Hamas caucus. Others who signed on to the letter includes Reps. Karen Bass of California, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Adam Smith of Washington and Sara Jacobs of California, according to CNN. The Hill mentioned Reps. Debbie Dingell of Michigan, Judy Chu of California and Steve Cohen of Tennessee.
Omar, who was born in Somalia, has served in the House of Representatives since 2019.
“Born in Somalia, Rep. Omar and her family fled the country’s civil war when she was eight. The family spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya before coming to the United States in 1990s,” according to the biography on the congresswoman’s website.
CNN noted that Omar is one of only three Muslims serving in the nation’s legislature.

The legislators want Blinken “to specifically include anti-Muslim violence per se in next year’s annual human rights reports,” according to The Hill.
