Ilhan Omar Slammed for Criticizing Video of People Singing Christian Songs on Plane

Backlash ensued over the Easter weekend after Rep. Ilhan Omar criticized a video of Christians singing a worship song mid-flight.

“I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane. How do you think it will end?” Omar tweeted on Saturday.

In the video, Jack Jensz Jr. played the guitar while some young and unmasked passengers sang a piece of gospel music on the plane to celebrate Easter, but several older passengers were not amused.

Jensz is the founder of Kingdom Realm Ministries, an organization that has been traveling around Europe to support refugees fleeing Ukraine amid Russia’s attack on their country.

Vernon Jones, a former Democrat, now running as a Republican to be Georgia’s next governor, blasted Omar for allegedly hating Christians.

“Why do you hate Christians, Ilhan? If the freedom of religion we enjoy here in America disturbs you, feel free to pack your bags and head back to Somalia, Sudan, or wherever you’re from. Take your brother with you,” Jones said in a tweet.

Cicely David, a GOP candidate seeking to replace Omar in the upcoming midterms, pointed out how airlines in Qatar play Islamic prayers on the intercom before takeoff and have a designated prayer area.

“Qatar – a country you’re very familiar with – plays Islamic prayers on the intercom before takeoff on their planes. They have a designated prayer area & coordinates for Mecca are posted on the screens… The issue is you hate Christians & Jews & lots of Muslims,” David said in a tweet.

GOP Florida congressional candidate Jose Castillo said that Muslims ‘can & do pray in public’ in America.

“If she wants a country where Christians aren’t allowed to do the same @IlhanMN should go back to her own country,” Castillo said in a tweet.
