Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) on Friday accepted Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) invitation to discuss religious discrimination over Somali tea after the two lawmakers traded brbs over social media this week.
Zeldin, who is Jewish, on Twitter this week shared a vulgar anti-Semitic voicemail message from a man who wished “Hitler would have done his … job.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“This new VM just came into my office,” Zeldin wrote in a tweet that tagged Omar on Thursday. “This is just another day in my world as an American Jew in Congress. Would love to know what part of this hate filled, anti-Semitic rant you disagree with?”
Omar responded by calling the message “heinous and hateful” and said she is also flooded with similar messages.
A progressive Somali-American from Minnesota, Omar is one of the first two Muslim women in Congress.
“Maybe we could meet and share notes on how to fight religious discrimination of all kinds?” Omar offered. “Maybe over Somali tea, in your old office which I happen to be in now.”
This is heinous and hateful. I too am flooded with bigoted voicemails and calls every day.
Maybe we could meet and share notes on how to fight religious discrimination of all kinds?
Maybe over Somali tea, in your old office which I happen to be in now. https://t.co/FQ909kYSwo

Let’s do that! Are you saying you disagree w/everything said in that voicemail? I sure do & it would be great if you did as well & cosponsored & helped #PassHRes72. That would be a step in the right direction. https://t.co/RYIqDN5Mby

Those poor innocent ISIS fighters & Palestinian terrorists right? Give me a break! That’s a problem no matter your religion or gender Ilhan. Your anti-Semitic & anti-Israel hate is strong & wrong & those terrorists have US blood on their hands as well. https://t.co/yVmS6Tdd8T
