Ilhan Omar, Muslim congresswoman from Minnesota, obviously does not know history very well. She suggested that Jesus was a Palestinian and not Jewish.
It is both common knowledge and historical fact that Jesus was born of the tribe of Judah, which of course makes Him not only an Israelite, but a Jew.
On top of that, the Roman emperor Augustus Caesar decreed that everyone should be taxed. As a result, Joseph and Mary went to their own city Bethlehem, Judaea, Israel to be taxed. While they were there in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus.
This was fulfillment of the ancient prophet Micah, who prophesied that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem, Judah. Micah lived 700 years before Christ was born and Christ was born some 500-600 years before Muhammed and Islam.
Ilhan Omar has a lot to learn. Interestingly enough, this same Jesus died on the cross for Ilhan Omar’s sins same as for everyone else. Anyone who desires eternal life can put their trust in YaHshua Jesus for salvation and live forever, including Ilhan Omar.
