Itâ€™s an old joke: How can you tell a politician is lying? His lips are moving.
It seems that may be the case for the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress. An analyst at the Gatestone Institute presented evidence that Ilhan Abdullahi Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Harbi Tlaib of Michigan lied to voters.
The charge comes from Soeren Kern, a senior fellow at the institute, who who wrote that most of the media coverage since their election Nov. 6 â€śhas been effusive in praise of their Muslim identity and personal history.â€ť
â€śLess known is that both women deceived voters about their positions on Israel. Both women, at some point during their rise in electoral politics, led voters â€“ especially Jewish voters â€“ to believe that they held moderate views on Israel. After being elected, both women reversed their positions and now say they are committed to sanctioning the Jewish state.â€ť
