Dear Congresswoman Tlaib,

It has been explained to me that the Arab culture is shame based, which means that to avoid shame, Arabs must find someone or something else to blame for their errors. In the case of your defense of Ihan Omar. you are apparently borrowing from this culture by blaming islamophobia for the criticism of Ilhan Omar who said that Jews are not loyal Americans, and for them it’s all about the money.

How difficult would it be for you to acknowledge that Rep Omar was wrong to slander Jews? Why wouldn’t you try to assist Rep. Omar by encouraging her to treat all Americans with respect?

If you cannot, and you share the Jew hatred that emanates from the Arab culture, then you will never be able to adequately represent your district.

Democrats have been very critical of President Trump and his administration for enabling white supremacy to poison our country. Do we now have to face up to the reality that the Democratic Party has politicians whose hatred for Jews is just as deplorable?

Sincerely yours,

Larry Shapiro
