radical Islam on the World Trade Center by stating "some people did

language that includes alleging Jewish money is used to buy American

influence regarding its policy toward Israel; Rep. Omar is also a supporter

of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Alabama Republican Party

urges its elected congressional delegation to proceed with the expulsion

process in accordance to Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution to
