Thanks to The Baltimore Sun for publishing Rep. Ilhan Omar’s full statement addressing CAIR. It's clear that the right wing of American is spinning Congresswoman Omar’s words by taking them out of context (“Trump tweets video comparing 9/11, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments on Islamic-American relations,” April 13). The 3,000-some Americans who died on 9/11 were martyrs and the grounds of 9/11 are sacred grounds just like Pearl Harbor. Truth be told, from my perspective as a citizen for more than four decades, the anti-Islam portion of the United States has used the events of Sept. 11, 2001 to erode Muslim-Americans’ rights for equality and equity. I have seen it in public schools which depicted Islam as backward religion, even though it's clear that a good Muslim cannot be a good Muslim until he or she believes in Christianity and Judaism. The opposite of that is not true. My handsome three American sons had to fight their way in public schools just because of this religious anti-Islam bias. I, as a Baltimore surgeon for long decades, have seen the bias against me, for my faith and ethics. It did not matter how accomplished I became.
