US Democrats led by Ilhan Omar are calling on Secretary of State Antony Blinken to appoint a special envoy to combat Islamophobia following a global uptick in attacks and abuses against Muslims.
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar penned a letter requesting Blinken to make Islamophobia a priority, and to include state-sponsored Islamophobic violence in next year’s annual human rights report.
“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,” the Muslim lawmaker wrote in a letter.
Omar is joined by fellow Muslim Democrat Rashida Tlaib and 23 other Democrats in signing the letter.
The petition cites the 2021 annual US report on the Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) which found that China, India, and Myanmar exhibited “patterns of mistreatment and human rights violations against either their entire Muslim populations or particular sects of Muslims”.
“It is past time for the United States to stand firmly in favour of religious freedom for all, and to give the global problem of Islamophobia the attention and prioritization it deserves.”

Last month Canadian MPs unanimously adopted a motion calling to “convene an Emergency National Action Summit on Islamophobia” after a pick-up truck slammed into and killed four members of a Muslim family in the south of Canada’s Ontario province, in what police was a “premeditated” attack.
Twenty-year-old Nathaniel Veltman is accused of deliberately driving his pick-up truck into a family of Pakistani origin as they walked on a footpath in London, Ontario.
A nine-year old boy survived the attack but his parents, Salman Afzal, 46 and Madiha Afzali, 44 died alongside his 15-year-old sister Yumna and their 74-year -old grandmother, whose name has not been made public.
“This year has seen over 500 incidents of hate in the US — and those are just the ones that have been reported,” Omar went on to add.
“In countries around the world – from China to India to Myanmar – Muslim communities are being discriminated against,” the Congresswoman added. “We must all stand united against this horrific rise in hate.”
In China, Uighur Muslims are reportedly interned in labour camps, forcibly sterilised, and abused in what human rights groups are calling one of the worst human rights crises in recent times.
Omar’s letter comes after US President Joe Biden said he would soon reveal a State Department ambassador-at-large to lead antisemitism monitoring.

Well, Mrs Omar, let me clue you in.
Since you are a Congress member, you are probably aware that this country was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. Should you ever decide to read our founding documents, you will see that our founding fathers placed a high value on these principles. You will also see that you do, in fact, have religious freedom in this country—you are free to practice the Muslim faith if you so desire.
You may have also noticed that The Bible, the Ten Commandments—along with many other references to the Christian faith, are very prominent here—and that is not by accident. It is not a State religion, but it was integrated into the founding of this country and it holds a place of dominance—and rightly so. I should not have to point out to you that it is the Christian faith that is under assault in this country—and the Muslim community has a lot to do with it. Muslim beliefs are in stark contrast to Christian beliefs—there are many undesirable aspects of Islam that we do not espouse nor do we want them here.
You can take your demands for an envoy to combat Islamophobia and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine. Quite honestly, you have no business over here anyway and you certainly do not belong in Congress. If we combat anything, it will be the daily and unjustified onslaught against our Christian values—of which you are a part of the problem.
I couldn’t have said it better, Bravo!
SHE KNOWS It was founded on jeudo christian values. THAT IS WHY SHE RABIDLY HATES OUR NATION.. because like all good mudslimes she wants a GLOBAL islamic caliphate to rule over everything.. US INCLUDED.
Since she DENIES the Constitution is SUPERIOR TO moslemism and REQUIRES moslemism to be the supreme law of the land, her ‘naturalized citizenship’ is NULL AND VOID!
Islamophobia, like Homophobia is just another example of Liberal mind bending word salad where the truth gets tossed to the tune of oxymoronic pentameter. “Phobia” which means fear is the last thing strong brave unadulterated Americans have for either homosexuality or Islam. In the case of Homosexuality, the word phobia should be replaced with “Disgust” and in the case of Islam the replacement word is “avoidance or defiance” You do not sacrifice brave American lives in fear, but in defiance in order to avoid their incoming violence to your Body, or in the case of male homosexuality the violence to your morality, where the violence to your body is just the collateral damage.
Last i looked, Phobia meant “HAVING an irrational fear” of something.
ITS NOT irrational to HATE and fear what islam is doing..
If I may… Ms. Omar, Americans are NOT “Islamophobic”.
“phobic” or “phobia” suffixes mean an irrational FEAR of something.
We are not AFRAID of Islam (or, YOU). We DISLIKE you, and many may, in fact, DISLIKE your Religion (as well stated, above), but we don’t FEAR you or your religion!
Rather, it appears that YOU (and those like you) appear to be Christianphobic (have an IRRATIONAL FEAR of Christians).
In fact, you ALSO appear to be Americaphobic (possess an irrational fear of the United States [and the freedoms, therein])!
If you LOVE your religion (and the teachings thereof), perhaps you would prefer to LIVE in one of the Arab/Muslin countries (rather than the United States, you seem to HATE so much)!
PLEASE, take the rest of your “squad” with you!
I actually DO FEAR Islam, and would have loved it, if the crusades had succeeded in totally wiping that devil worshipping, camel humping death cult off the face of the planet.
Not to forget that she is totally anti-American, anti-Semitic, and really a disgrace to her Muslim religion on all counts. She should not be in Congress, and I cannot understand how she has not been kicked out! In Somalia she would be stoned for her actions – kacking around with a man while married, marrying her brother to get him into the USA, etc; and our wonderful people in Congress do not have the baytzim to kick her off. I cannot believe that we have to wait for elections to get rid of her and her ilk. Of course the people in Congress are probably afraid of what might happen to them and/or their families. Which is certainly feasible. Jews and Christians have to be afraid of her. She and her ilk are dangerous people.
Not so Fern, Christians don’t have to be afraid of satan & his followers (muslims):
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Live it Christians, stop being afraid, call on the LORD!
Elections have become too corrupt to get this **** out of office!! We need a good plumber to clean the raw sewage that is blocking the pipes of justice in D.C.!!
She is the racist one! SHE Should not be in this country never mind in Congress! People with her beliefs are slowly getting in little by little. SHE needs to Read the constitution and understand GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! NOT allah, GOD! Say the pledge of Allegiance, ONE NATION UNDER GOD! Again, not allah, GOD! GOD IS GREAT! Remember 911 is coming up on 20 years and we will never EVER FORGET that your muslim brother’s caused over 3,000 innocent deaths because of your beliefs in allah, not GOD! So please get on the next flight, one way flight, to YOUR ignorant, hate filled cesspool you were born in. It wasn’t Minnesota!
I agree. HAD WE had people in office with a spine, THE MOMENT The truth of her being married to her brother (A CRIME) and had used that to illegally get her green card to stay, she should have instantly been KICKED THE HELL BACK to somalia…
The filthy mongrel has no place in our country–send her back to her pirate village
Thank you. We need to share more on the senseless slaughters of Christians and Jews in many nations. About 40 churches were burned, and they forcefully closed, even out door churches. Israel had many synagogues destroyed in the last battle. Muslims have used intimidation to push more of their aggressive agenda. It will be a challenge, but we have to stand our ground. The Critical Race Theory was part of their agenda to reduce, or diminish the white race into guilt or shame. Their culture calls those who don’t believe their faith as Infidels, and also Dhimmis. We are less then they are, in their eyes.
Don’t forget all the RAPE GANGS of kids in the european nations, ALL DONE BY FILTHY mudslime Rapefugees, that all too often the COURTS and politicians over there, completely overlook. BECAUSE THEY are too damn scared of being either
A) called islamophobic
or b) are scared it might “anger the muslims to go a jihad” on them..
We need to combat the rule that allows foreigners to run for office, as well as Muslims, and anyone who hates America or Israel. You’re right. Omar should never have been given the chance to run for office or be elected. In fact, combat the rule that let Democrats run for office and make that party illegal. We need 2 parties who love America!
IF i had a time machine, i’d LOVE TO GO BACK in time and ensure that was WROTE RIGHT INTO THE INTRO OF the constitution..
NO FOREIGNERS, even those who got ‘naturalized’ can ever run for office. ONLY THOSE WHO ARE BORN HERE with BOTH PARENTS being citizens, can.
GOD is way ahead of you ChickenWings:
Deuteronomy 17:15….one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
To bad we don’t know GOD’s written WORD nor follow it.
What does a turbin- wearing Foreign enemy of the American Christian and the countries republic form of Governement ding in tha democrat Marxist Government, destroying that Republic Government from the inside, out in a part of Government.
How did this Muslim become a part of our RepublicGovernment,Llhan Omar used our form of Republic Government, just like the marxist democrat Representatives in the democrat party do and just like the rest of the Squad does to work inside theDemocrat Marxist party. Its not by accident that she chose the democrat party as her base of operztions, If Llan Omar hadn’ found the democrat party, the Marxist democrat would have found and claimed her as one of their own.
Thats why i keep saying we should have never ever, let islam GET ANY SORT of foot hold in our nation..
“Ilhan Omar Demands Envoy To Combat Islamophobia”
* dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.
Do you think that Ilhan Omar would Demand an Envoy To Combat Christianophobia??
* Intense dislike or fear of Christianity; hostility or prejudice towards Christians.
Ilhan Omar and the Democrat Party do Not like Christians or their worship of GOD.
The dishonorable, immoral, demonic Democrat Party wants us to worship them.
To fully advance the Demonic, Dishonorable Socialist Democrat Party’s destructive agendas of socialism, dividing our citizens with hate, open borders, gun control, radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, the LGBTQ lifestyle, unfettered sexual identity, transgender “gay marriage” and the like, the pagan Liberal left Democrats must do away with our Constitution, GOD, common sense, morality, Christian values and free religious exercise altogether.
Under the guise of “anti-discrimination.”
Omar herself suffers from Integriphobia (fear of Integrity, Blancophobia, (Fear of White people) and Judeophobia (Fear of Judeo/Christian values that prove Islamic ones a failure). She married her brother to slide him into the country under the radar, so you can add Judicialphobia to the list. Fearful people make for poor Congressional representatives, unless fear, so prevalent within the Islamic communities worldwide is what she was elected to represent.
Mark Twain was suposed to have said about organizations that would have a member such as himself Join them as a member. Mark Twain , to paraphase him sais, ” that he would not Join a group that allowed some like him to become a member ” The democrat party welcomed Omar and the rest of the Squad with open arms, what does that say about the democrat party?
I know–let’s revisit the culture of Islam and use the tools the religion of “peace” showed the world by beheadings of infidels, amputations, and the hanging of burned corpses on bridges! That will deter so-called islamaphobia.
Dont forget their LOVE OF tossing queers off of rooftops to their deaths!
Isn’t the democrat party the home for ” Black Lives Matter and the home for those who are ” Transgender’s, thoses who zre of one sex, but Act and dress like they aare of thr other sex.? If the democrat party is susposed to be the party which welcomes eveery one, doesn’t the democrat party also have room for the White Race too?
Nope, The democrat Party has No room for White or any conservative Christians.
The Democrat Party is a cult of Satan.
Not unless you’re a HATER of your own species (whites!)
Since the Constitution IS THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND,
AND Since Citizenship REQUIRES ABSOLUTE ADHERENCE TO THE CONSTITUTION
and since moslemism requires moslemism be the supreme law of the land..
and since moslemism in INCOMPATIBLE WITH US CONSTITUTONAL LAW!
this ignorant little twit CANNOT BE A CITIZEN OF THIS NATION.
so… why/HOW was she elected?
Isn’t it about time the CONSTITUTION BE HONORED and TREATED AS THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND?
Why do you think traitors like her, ARE DOING ALL they can to UNDERMINE IT at every step.. BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT Our constitution to be the supreme law of our lands anymore.
If Islamophobia is so bad in the US, and I’m not so sure it is, one of the reasons for that is that Omar’s anti-American, anti-Semetic actions actually promote anti-Islamic sentiments.
Omar herself is responsible for a large amount of anti Islamic sentiments in this country. She has been incredibly blessed by this country and yet constantly criticizes it and holds it responsible for everything that is wrong in this world and fails to show any gratitude for all that she has received.
Omar is her own worst problem.
her ‘naturalized citizenship’ can be revoked due to her PERJURY OF THE OATH OF CITIZENSHIP!
REVOKE, charge and run her through the legal system.
After her 10 years in Prison,. deport her with “Penalty of Death” should she ever return.
WHY Even keep her in our prisons. JUST EXILE HER BUTT back to somalia..
She, and all the America hating, Constitution hating traitors like her, all need to be taken to Gitmo where they will be stripped of their citizenships, their Constitutional rights, and face Military Tribunal, followed by mandatory death sentence to be carried out immediately following Tribunal. Ilhan Omar, Rashitta Tlaib, AOC, Piglosi, they ALL need to be on the next aircraft bound for Gitmo.
America, you had better start taking treason more seriously….while we still have an America left.
Since there is no such thing as islamophobia (irrational fear of islam) there can be no envoy to combat it. There is a real fear of islam, so an irrational fear (islamophobia) is a figment of her imagination.
She needs to be sent back to Somolia and must leave her US passport at the door.
she can go to……
How can this anti-Christian, anti-American fool be a US Citizen and a member of the House? She clearly is not here legally and needs to be stripped of her US citizenship, residency and office and deported immediately. What an idiot.
ITS because of folks like her, i REALLY WISH it had been wrote into our constitution, that only NATURALLY BORN US CITIZENS (those born here of TWO AMERICAN PARENTS) would be allowed to EVER RUN FOR ANY political office; local, county, state and ESPECIALLY federal.
Please go away!
I have no idea why this woman is in congress. Her hatred of US is so obvious to all of us. She needs to be thrown out on her rear! She is here to tear down America. So is Tlaib. These women ran for office to get their agenda for middle east shoved down our throats whether we like it or not ..Sorry you hateful women….we will NEVER lose our loyalty to our great ally Israel ….and we will never adopt a love for Islam. Please go home where you belong. You do not BELONG here……a country you despise
AND a country where she is despised!

Who?? Islamic Terrorists
Worst terrorist attack within the borders of the United States
Oh yeah…now I recall……when “some people did something” ….
Yes, I remember 9/11 and I also remember her comment ” somebody did something , ” I just plain dislike her.
That wasn’t a terror attack. Just ask obama.. IT was work place violence.
May she be buried in a coffin filled with pig dung.
Islamophobia is a false concept that was created by Islamists and their apologists on the left to portray Muslims as helpless victims of the Judeo-Christian, democratic societies in which they reside. Since Muslims are a minority of the population in North American and European nations, Islamists attempt to increase their political power and obtain special treatment for Muslims by grossly inflating claims of mistreatment by non-Muslims and demanding that laws be passed to provide them with rights and protections not afforded to non-Muslim citizens. Islamists seek to increase the acceptance of Islam in democratic societies by convincing western governments to criminalize and censor any legitimate criticism of the anti-democratic beliefs and human rights abuses that are enshrined in Islamic ideology.
With the morally weak and excessively woke Biden-Harris Administration now ruling America, radical Muslims Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are seizing the opportunity to push the Islamophobia lie and have the administration ask the U.N. to investigate claims of mistreatment of Muslims in the U.S. If the administration invites the leftist U.N. to investigate the prevalence of Islamophobia, we can expect the U.N.’s final report to conclude that America is systemically Islamophobic.
That would be a good reason to kick out the idiot UN along with the satanic muslims. I’m sick of wallowing in their gutter trash. Clean this cesspool up, or continue with the filth, America. Cleanse the political trash out too. I dunno, this country is to cowardly for such a task.
It’s not a phobia, stupid, it’s absolute hate of anything or anybody who wants to change our/my way of life. That includes communists and the Democratic party if it continues on its current path.
I suspect if we counted up the number of Muslims who were attacked or otherwise abused in the last year and the number of Christians who suffered the same fate we’d see that there were more Christians under attack. The thing is that the Muslims, for the most part, are being attacked by misguided individuals and atheistic governments while the Christians are being attacked by atheistic governments as well as Muslim governments.
Omar is requesting that there are enforcers of her ideology. In Iran the street enforcers of the regime’s standards are the Basij, which is the appropriate analogy because she lies like a Persian rug. Omar wants that sort of power. Islamophobes are misnamed if their “fears” and misgivings are grounded in reality. She is only in the US because her father was on the losing side when the government fell in Somalia.
Pay no mind to that big wooden horse. It’s a gift!
It is time to remove this undesirable from my country
If i had my way i’d remove not just her, but ALL HER FELLOW MUDSLIME ILK from this nation, forever. and while we’re at it, bulldoze down EVERY MOSQUE.
This creature has a lot of room to talk. With her it is not do unto others…, but dot it first. She comes into the conversation with her beliefs and opinions already engrained in her and is not going to change, but she wants others to change to her side. A lot like the democrats with their bi-partisanship idea, which is, the Republicans go along with them not the other way around.
While violence toward anyone based on religion is condemnable anyone who has studied Islam can tell you that both by its Qur’an, Sunnah and its extremely violent history it is a conquer, plunder, take slaves (including captive girls as sex slaves sanctioned in the Qur’an 4:24, 23:6, 33:50) and subjugate “religion” highly antithetical to our Constitutional freedoms. It was invented as a support for this activity by the Arab Abbasid rulers in the 8th- 9th centuries. The only reason why its warriors are not still militarily conquering much of the West today – as they were in past centuries – is only because they can’t militarily, just demographically with the help of globalist political traitors & dupes.
Fear of Islam & criticism of its totalitarian & extremely intolerant teachings are perfectly rational. An envoy to combat “Islamophobia” is totally irrational , anti-American and clearly a violation of our 1st Amendment right of freedom of speech.
