WHEREAS, Women of Color are among the most vulnerable and oppressed members of American society;

WHEREAS, U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar is a Women of Color who came to America as a child, seeking refuge from war in Somalia;

WHEREAS, upon coming to America she was subjected to Islamophobia and racism in the form of physical, verbal and psychological abuse;

WHEREAS, Omar has recently made comments about the undue influence of AIPAC and its support for the right wing, racist and genocidal Likkud Party currently in power in Israel;

WHEREAS, these legitimate comments by Omar have been falsely characterized as “anti-Semitic” by Trump and his cronies, including one calling her “filth” on national television;

WHEREAS, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the U.S. House leadership of the Democratic Party has capitulated to Trump by adopting the false anti-Semitic narrative of the American right wing and adopting House resolutions of condemnation particularly directed at Omar;

WHEREAS, the Democratic leadership has a shameful history of political cowardice;

THEREFORE, we the undersigned demand that the Democratic House leadership cease and desist from all attacks on Omar, revoke all previously passed resolutions directed at Omar and condemn the Islamophobia and racism evident from Trump and his hacks in this tragic affair.
