STATEMENT FROM CEO MARK MELLMAN ON REPUBLICAN ATTACK ON CONGRESSWOMAN ILHAN OMAR

WASHINGTON, DC (March 3, 2019) – Democratic Majority for Israel’s CEO Mark Mellman issued the following statement today on behalf of Democratic Majority for Israel:

“Anti-Muslim prejudice is as unacceptable and pernicious as anti-Semitism, and any other form of racism. The Republican attack, attempting to falsely link Congresswoman Omar to the terrorism of September 11th, represents hateful bigotry. Democratic Majority for Israel condemns this ugly charge, as should every American committed to our country’s ideals.”
