Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., defended herself and fellow freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., after the recent backlash to Tlaib’s comments about the Holocaust and the Palestinians’ response to Jewish people moving to the region.

“I tell my sister, Rashida Tlaib, that her and I have the strength to endure any of the mischaracterization or efforts to distort and vilify and mischaracterize our message. I think we are seeing what happens when people really see these kind of attacks for what they are.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’m excited we have an opportunity to build alliances and push back and fight this attempt to marginalize our community’s voice,” she said.
