Jewish Leaders Outraged by Democrat Ilhan Omar's Antisemitic Tweets

Newly-elected US lawmakers Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib made their debut in the House of Representatives openly declaring their support for a boycott of Israel

Ilhan Omar Says AIPAC Pays Politicians To Be Pro-Israel

Joshua Zeitz, a contributing editor at Politico Magazine, tweeted, "I'm one of those American Jews who opposes the occupation, laments Israel's anti-democratic drift, and doesn't regard the country as especially central to my Jewish identity".

The first two Middle East Congresswomen, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, have openly endorsed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

"Chelsea - I would be happy to talk". We must call out smears from the GOP and their allies.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) even equated her past comments to Rep. Steve King (R-IA) who was recently kicked off all his committees and formally disciplined by the House for his white supremacy remarks. "Bad form, Congresswoman. That's the second anti-Semitic trope you've tweeted".

Omar made the comment in a tweet on Sunday evening American time sparking immediate backlash, with tweeters accusing Omar of going down a slippery slop by linking AIPAC with the negative antisemitic stereotype of Jewish people's false obsession with money. "And I know exactly what the congresswoman meant".

Omar, who has promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that were used by Nazi Germany, said that the GOP's support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins baby". "Implying that Americans support Israel because of money alone is offensive enough". She has, thus far, ignored calls to remove Omar from that committee given her views on Israel and other issues.

"We have to call out anti-Semitic language and tropes on all sides, particularly in our elected officials and particularly now", Clinton added. "And I believe we can do that without criticizing people for their faith".

Representative Ilhan Omar, Democrat of Minnesota, speaks during a press conference calling on Congress to cut funding for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and to defund border detention facilities, outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C, February 7.

Some people tried to explain the lobbying group's influence, with one person drawing attention to a tweet by the US Ambassador to Israel that described AIPAC as "Israel's national strategic asset".
