On Sunday March 24, 2019 edition of the Washington Post included a deplorable full-page ad falsely accusing Representative Ilhan Omar of anti-semitism. It intentionally misleads readers to believe Rep. Omar made statements she never uttered.
Send a message now to the Washington Post telling them that as a leading U.S. newspaper, they have an obligation not to participate in smear campaigns and incitements to hatred and Islamophobia. Ask the Washington Post to apologize to Rep. Omar and the Muslim community and commit to not selling misleading and hateful ads.
Sign our letter to the Washington Post!
Dear Washington Post:
I was extremely dismayed to see you print Rabbi Shmuley’s misleading and Islamophobic ad smearing Representative Ilhan Omar and inciting hatred against Muslims.
The ad begins with the words “Jews control the world with their money” next to Rep. Omar’s face, giving the false impression she said that. She did not.
Spreading Islamophobia and hatred is dangerous. The New Zealand mosque massacre just took the lives of 50 people and Rep. Omar is already facing serious death threats. Printing this ad contributes to the dangers the congresswoman and the world Muslim community face.
Please apologize to Rep. Omar and the Muslim community and commit to no longer selling space in your paper for ads that propagate any form of hatred.
