When she should have said, was the following:

If the towers had been struck at a different time and manner, 50,000 or more people might have lost their lives. I condemn this attack and will work hard as a representative of Congress, to make sure that it can never happen again".


Since she didn't say that, I will call her terrorist sympathizer.


This.


As we see so often, even "moderate Muslims" often make excuses, left handed apologies, or otherwise justify their positions with a "but" etc.

Agree. And didn't she ask the judge to be lenient on the haters in her district who joined - or tried to join ISIS? Why are her sympathies more with the members of a terrorist group than decent Americans?

Sad ... but true. Ironically Muslims make good Republicans and share a lot of the same values. Muslims tended to vote for Republicans (as George W well knew) until the 'Trump effect' on the Republican party.

A useful voting bloc lost.
Good-I would hate to be known as the party of Islam-just as I would the party of Nazism. It seems as if the Democratic party is now the party of Islam. They both share the same values. A virulent hatred of America, a willingness to sacrifice the lives of American citizens-and both embrace anti-semitism.

I would counter by saying that until very recently, the vast majority of Americans had a healthy fear of Islam. Why would we want to allow a culture that is so incompatible with freedom and democracy to infest our culture?

The real question you should be asking is;

“Is the Democratic Party the party of Islamophilia?”
I don't know about "very recently". Before 9/11 I thought of Islam as just another religion, like Catholicism or Methodism. And even after, I believed that 9/11 was the action of a few demented individuals that happened to be Islamic. It has been quite recently, with another 15 years of savagery, barbarism, slaughter and brutality, plus some research, that has led me to believe that these things are not the exception but rather the rule of Islam. Those that commit these vile acts are simply duplicating the acts and demands of the vile, demented founder of Islam. It really is hard to believe such a savage, primitive individual could ever rise to a position of power and influence....but then all you have to do is look at 1930s Germany to realize the mentality still exists.

There is a little difference between Jesus and Moho. One says "love your enemy as your friend"-the other "kill the infidel".
Well stated and spot on.

Of course, they do oppose compulsory charity of socialism because "thou shalt not steal" even if it is the government doing it.
How dare they support more abundant life!

Like I said , Islam is a cancer on this planet. Had I left it at that, someone would have called me out for not bringing up the Catholics and all the "molestation" charges that have come out. So I added them in my reply. Yes, the Catholic church does a lot of good, but it is tarnished by this.

Omar has accused Jewish Americans of having a dual loyalty to Israel, compared Israel to Iran, accused AIPAC of paying members of congress to support Israel, and dismissed the 9/11 attack on this country as "some people did something".

She is virulently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel. Don't expect reasonable people to stop criticizing her or calling her out. Omar has earned her criticism.
The irony is thick with the defense of Omar by the left. They constantly say that Trump is another Hitler, yet ignore their Congresswoman who actually talks and acts like Hitler.

It's not Islamaphobia to criticize a woman who has close ties with a designated terror group. It's called being vigilant.
