Daily Wire: Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said on Thursday that she did not understand why Jewish Americans would find her anti-Semitic comments to be offensive.
Omar, who has been accused of marrying her brother and committing immigration fraud, accusations she denies, once again defended her anti-Semitic views while appearing on CNN’s “Newsroom,” where she referred to Israel’s government as a “regime.”
CNN’s Poppy Harlow pressed Omar about a tweet from several years ago where Omar wrote: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” more …
Opinion: There ya go. Rashida Tlaib has a map in her office that calls Israel “Palestine” and Ilhan Omar simply cannot understand why calling Israel evil is offensive.
It is a long way from there to seeing Israel as an important ally of the United States, let alone as God’s chosen people.
And just so there is no mistake, Ilhan now says her 2012 tweet “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” was an unfortunate choice of words.
There, feel better now?
Ilhan Omar is the quiet one compared to Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), but don’t let that fool you, as a member of the powerful House Foreign Relations Committee she might be the most dangerous of them all.
Within the very hour of her committee appointment, Omar expanded on that criticism, referring to Israel as a “regime.”
