Anonymous note outside Tlaib's office calls on Omar to stop 'disgusting Jew hatred'
The note, written on a blue sticky note and posted on the placard outside Tlaib's office in the Longworth House Office Building, reads: "Rep Omar, stop your disgusting Jew hatred. That means Jews too. Your Jihad against the Jews will fail. "
The note also included the words" Am Yisrael Chai, "which translates to" the nation of Israel lives. "
Tlaib, who is the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress and, together with Omar, serves as one of two Muslim women in Congress, tweeted a photo of the note Tuesday night.
"This is the hateful rhetoric & bullying on my door today." "Come here w / the value that all beings deserve human rights, including the Palestinians." (Omar) & I fight for equality & justice for all. There's nothing antisemitic about that! " Tlaib wrote in the tweet.
Ilhan Omar remains defiant after being called to AIPAC ”
The comments were criticized on both sides of the aisle and prompted the Democratic-led House to pass a resolution earlier this month condemning hate and intolerance, including anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim discrimination.
It also comes almost two weeks after Tlaib, and Michigan Democrat who has also been criticized of Israel, said she believes Islamophobia "is still very present on both sides of the aisle" in Congress
