        Muslim Congresswoman-Elect Ilhan Omar Began Victory Speech With Islamic Blessing


        Muslim Congresswoman-Elect Ilhan Omar Began Victory Speech With Islamic Blessing
        [​IMG] Carol Kuruvilla,HuffPost Wed, Nov 7 6:26 PM CST

        Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to U.S. Congress, began her acceptance speech Tuesday night in Minnesota with a universal Islamic greeting.

        “As-salaam aleikum,” the Democrat said to a crowded room of supporters during a victory party in Minneapolis, using an Islamic phrase that means “Peace be upon you.”

        “Wa aleikum salaam,” the crowd immediately replied, which means “and upon you be peace.”

        After the exchange, which echoes the way millions of American Muslims greet each other every day, Omar offered her gratitude to God.

        “Alhamdulillah,” Omar said three times, a phrase that translates to “all praise to God.”

        Hearing that, her supporters erupted in cheers.

        Omar’s win in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District means Congress will soon have its first hijab-wearing member, its first refugee and its first Somali-American.

        The common Islamic phrases in Omar’s speech were a poignant moment for many American Muslims ― especially after an election cycle filled withIslamophobic attacks against Muslim candidates running for election.

          You can’t spell Huffington Post without huffing:

          huff
          /həf/
          verb
          gerund or present participle: huffing
          1. 1.
            blow out loudly; puff.
            "he was huffing under a heavy load"
          2. 2.
            INFORMAL•NORTH AMERICAN
            sniff fumes from (gasoline or solvents) for a euphoric effect.
            "kids that are huffing spray paint like crazy"

            I wonder if the Huffington Post asked her what her position on killing gays and Jews is.
