February, in a series of tweets, Rep. Ilhan Omar implied that U.S. policy in Israel was being manipulated by financial incentives and AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
This was hardly the first time Omar has pushed disgraceful Anti-Semitic rhetoric.
In 2012, Omar tweeted “Israel has hypnotized the world” and implied the close U.S. ally was “evil.”
As reported in Breitbart, Omar has previously mocked the idea that Israel is a democracy, comparing it to Iran and saying it should not be accepted as a “Jewish state” — then doubling down; and justified writing a letter to a judge in 2016 asking for a lenient sentence for nine Somali-Americans who were convicted of trying to join the Islamic State terror organization.
Instead of demanding an apology, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi watered down a resolution originally meant to condemn Anti-Semitism and instead argued that Rep. Omar’s suggestion that her pro-Israel colleagues have a dual loyalty to Israel and the U.S. was not “intentionally anti-Semitic.”
Democrat Ilhan Omar has called Israel “evil,” compared Israel to Iran, continues to push anti-Semitic tropes, and supports the anti-Semitic BDS movement to boycott Israel.
Nancy Pelosi was wrong to elevate her to the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Now Pelosi should remove her.
