Muslim And Arab Congressional Staffers Say They Feel ‘Betrayed’ By Democratic Bosses

Muslim and Arab staffers in COngressAs the death toll climbs from Israel’s attacks on Gaza and the U.S. makes few moves to rein in its closest military ally, one group is saying that it has never felt so invisible.

Muslim and Arab staffers and those whose family come from the region say they are struggling with a gnawing belief that their lives don’t matter to their colleagues. They describe the agony of watching the institution to which they’ve dedicated their career sending military aid amid the killing of thousands of civilians who look like them.

“They have the same faith as us, have the same names as us, a lot of our families live in the region,” one staffer said. “So when we hear that dehumanizing language, it’s dehumanizing us.”

Every day brings some new confirmation that “my life would not matter to this place if I had been born somewhere else,” said another.
