Omar and Tlaib justified their work as making America more inclusive of it’s Muslim-American population and moving us further away from our history as a primarily Christian nation. The women are also considering a last minute addition to their bill that would allow for regular Salah time breaks for school children and workers as well as a designated area in each public business where Muslims could perform Salah, the five daily prayers plus the Friday prayer, unmolested...

Five days? There is one Christian holiday on the calendar.

Do they plan on decapitating those who don't fast during Ramadan or will chopping off the hands and tongue be enough?

Detroit is going to long for the days of John Conyers, who the Tliab traitor replaced. At least he was merely corrupt and not determined to demolish America

Watch for the Republicans to run for the hills rather than speak out against this.

And the ACLU is anti-Christian only, they sit with their thumbs up their rumps as Islamic theocracy comes from the federal government.

Banks cannot stay closed more than 3 days in a row, by federal law. That is why we don’t have 4 day holiday weekends for Thanksgiving, or Christmas and New Years as would have been the case a few weeks ago.
