Jewish NDP MPP Rima Berns-McGown: “I embraced Islam; but I am still Jewish”

Rima Berns-McGown, a Jewish Member of the Ontario Provincial Parliament for Beaches-East York on behalf the New Democratic Party (NDP), has revealed she embraced Islam.

In a post on Facebook Berns-McGown wrote (December 14, 2019):

“Yes, I also embraced Islam a few years ago, for many reasons that I don’t have the time or space to detail here, but I of course am still Jewish — sorry not sorry if that confuses you 🤷 and especially where it comes to Israel I speak as a Jew.”
