Historic vote for Muslim women in USA elections

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are set to become the first Muslim women elected to the US Congress Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are set to become the first Muslim women elected to the US Congress

Anti-Muslim hate groups falsely attacked Omar and Tlaib as anti-Semites supporting terrorism.

Democrat Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee, won her House of Representatives seat in Minnesota yesterday.

"I stand here before you tonight as your congresswoman-elect".

"I did not expect to come to the United States and go to school with kids who were anxious about food as much as I was anxious about it in a refugee camp", Omar said in an interview last month. She said she hopes to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, protect women's and refugee rights and fight climate change. The news site said she was criticized by some Palestinian activists for being too engaged with pro-Israel lobbyists, and from some left-leaning Jewish activists who criticized her call for a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Tlaib took Michigan's 13th congressional district in a race in which she was the sole major party candidate.

Omar, a refugee from Somalia, is the first Somali-American Muslim woman to hold public office.

The two women will increase the total number of Muslims in the House to three - African American congressman Andre Carson has also won re-election in his Democratic district in Indiana. "I think about my younger siblings - they have people to look up to". Omar won the DFL primary in August with more than 48 percent of the vote.

Now Congresswoman-elect Omar is talking about taking on President Trump, including at a University of Minnesota Humphrey School forum. Ilhan Omar, a Somali-American Democrat who ran for the House in Minnesota, will join Tlaib in Congress.

State Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat, defeated Republican Jennifer Zielinski in the race to represent the state's Fifth District, which spans Minneapolis, Edina, Richfield, Golden Valley and other Minneapolis suburbs.

Asked what she would say if she has a chance to come face-to-face with Trump soon, she said "I would say that he is faced with an opportunity to lead".
