After Rep. Ilhan Omar mildly criticized evangelical Christians forcing passengers on their plane to listen to their concert, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Monday suggested that Omar, who is Muslim, could perpetrate a deadly airplane hijacking like the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Monday suggested that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is Muslim, could perpetrate a deadly airplane hijacking like the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

In a tweet on Sunday, Omar shared a video of a man playing a guitar and singing Christian music on an airplane full of people.

The video was titled "Worshipping Jesus 30,000 Feet in the Air."

"I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane," Omar wrote. "How do you think it will end?"

Greene responded with a comparison to 9/11.

"Would that be kind of like when 'some people did something?'" Greene asked.

Former President Donald Trump and his supporters have previously accused Omar of once using the phrase "some people did something" to refer to 9/11.
