(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/5/19) – On Wednesday, March 6, a coalition of Muslim and Jewish groups will hold a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., to announce a letter of support for Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that calls on Democratic Party leaders to equally condemn anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, xenophobia, and physical threats against any members of Congress.

WHAT: Coalition News Conference Announcing Letter of Support for Rep. Ilhan Omar

WHEN: Wednesday, March 6, 10:30 a.m.

    Prayers all efforts to fully expose and directly confront Tel Aviv’s control and rule over the USA using its American Jewish assets such as AIPAC.

    George Washington, the first president, gave advise to the new nation in a “Farewell Address” that specifically made clear that the new nation must avoid undue alliance with any nation and work to have good relations with all foreign countries.

    “George Washington warned Americans against entering permanent alliances with other nations and against having great passions either for or against any foreign nation in his farewell address. Instead, he urged the nation to agree to temporary alliances as necessary. The United States formed no long-term alliances for more than 150 years after his address.
    Washington’s Farewell Address was given on September 17, 1796. The first president believed that taking sides among other nations could prove risky for the United States and that aligning too much with or against other nations diverted his nation’s interests from important matters at home.” – https://www.reference.com/history/did-george-washington-warn-against-his-farewell-address

    Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is right in her comments about foreign influence being about the “Benjamins” for many in congress who tow the line for Tel Aviv. Election funding has “GREAT” input from AIPAC.

    Patriotic Americans must give full support to Congresswoman Omar as she fight to help rescue and save our nation from continuing foreign dictatorial control of the sovereignty of the United States of America.
