Rashida Tlaib makes it to history by becoming the first Palestinian-American woman ever to serve in the U.S. congress, and her son upon hearing the news, said the most heart whelming thing ever, “See mama, bullies don’t win.”
A year ago, Tlaib had made the headlines even before running for the congress, it was when she was kicked out of an event that took place in Michigan, where Trump was speaking after interrupting the then-Republican presidential nominee to ask if he had ever read the Constitution.
Tlaib described this incident later on as, “the most American thing I could ever do.”
Now Tlaib and incoming Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota will be the first two Muslim women ever to be elected in the congress.
Tlaib showed up to her swearing-in ceremony in her Palestinian ‘Thobe’ that she wore very proudly, she says that putting on the ‘Thobe’ means the world to her mother.
She added, “Every child of immigrant parents knows what it means when … their biggest hope is that they want us to succeed, but they also don’t want us to lose a part of who we are.”
The congresswoman also wants to be sworn in on Quran and she considered using verses of Thomas Jefferson’s Quran; seeing that such a doing can symbolize that Islam has always been a part of America and thus fight any sort of discrimination against Muslims in the country.
It is just outstanding to see Tlaib not miss a second of her election in trying to change the Muslims’ situation in America, and for her to be able to maintain her identity after years of living in another country and showcase her heritage oh so proudly.

Sherine Abdel Wahab Banned From Singing after Insulting Egypt
The Musicians Syndicate announced in a statement released on Thursday, March 21, announcing that Egyptian singer Sherine Abdel Wahab has officially been banned from singing in Egypt after insulting the country in a concert performance in Bahrain.
The singer was banned for questioning the freedom of speech in Egypt, saying that: ‘’ I can talk here with complete freedom, in Egypt anyone who talks freely is going to be jailed’’ said Abdel Wahab, during the concert.
Lawyer Samir Sabry submitted a complaint against the singer to the Egyptian general prosecutor accusing her of insulting Egypt during her latest concert in Bahrain.
While the incident angered several people, others are standing with the Egyptian singer and a hashtag supporting her is now trending on social media, asking for authorities to forgive the incident.

شيري فنّانه رفيعة المستوى … طيّبه عفويه لدرجة ، قد لاتُصيبُ بالتّعبير عمّا لاتقصد، وأنا كغيري الكثير ممّن يعرفونها، على ثقة بأنّها ستتريّث فيما لايجب أنّ يحصل ، وثقتنا بالفنّان الكبير الأستاذ هاني شاكر، كبيره بأنّ يكون له طيب الأثر، بوقفة مع مطربة يفخر بها الفنّ ، غذّت المشاعر ، وقوّمت قلوب ، وتغنّت بجميع أنواع المشاعر ، وتألّقت بأغاني الوطن ، وأنّ تمرّ هذه المحنة على خير ، وكلّنا ثقه بأنّها ستزيد تألّقاً ، في عالم يحتاجها ، إنّ شكّ يوماً بولاءها ، حتماً سيرجع يصفح عنها ، لأنّها منه وهو يزهو بها #أصاله #متضامن_مع_شيرين @sherine
49 Muslims killed in New Zealand Mosque terror attack
Earlier today, Muslims in New Zealand faced a horrific act of terrorism in which a number of extremists attacked two mosques in Christchurch; resulting in the death of around 49 people and the injury of dozens.
Among the dead is at least a child and a number of female worshipers, in addition to a number of teenagers who were also reported to have been fallen victims of the attack.
It is still not clear what exactly happened, but police reports indicated that 4 people are currently in custody. But investigations are still going on to know whether or not these four were involved in the shootings.
The four people include three men and one woman. Among the men is an Australian citizen, right-wing terrorist by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. New Zealand police say one male – in his late twenties – has been previously charged with murder.
With investigations still going on, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden indicated that “this will be one of New Zealand’s darkest days”.
The shooting at Al Noor Mosque, that is located in central Christchurch, happened around Friday prayers, meaning that many Muslims were likely inside at the time.
We are infuriated to have woken up on such horrific news, and our hearts and prayers go to the families of the victims, and all the Muslims in New Zealand.
