Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) Is a Socialist and extreme anti-Semite who supports Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Omar has made some extremely anti-Semitic things in her past, but yet the Democrat voters were more than happy to vote her in office. Omar has now defended her statement saying Israel is hypnotizing the world from their evil doings. She claims she does not regret her statement and stands by it.
omar stated in 2012 on Twitter, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Ilhan Omar was confronted on PBS over her statements in an interview.
PBS host asked, “Can I just move on to something that’s generally a rite of passage for politicians in the United States, and that is to sort of profess a sort of fealty or at least pay homage to AIPAC, the pro-Israel PAC that is very, very prominent. Should Jewish Americans be worried about congresswoman Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib because of the BDS movement, because of one of the tweets you made a long time ago, you were part of a new wave of Democrats not afraid to be critical of the government of Israel.”
PBS host continued, “During the 2012 military offensive in Gaza, you tweeted, ‘Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. How do you put that into context now and what do you say to American Jews?”
Omar replies, “I remember when that was happening, watching tv and really feeling as if no other life was being impacted in this war and that really, those unfortunate words were the only words I could think about expressing at that moment. What is really important to me is that people recognize that there is a difference between criticizing a military action by a government that has exercised really oppressive policies and being offensive or attacky [sic] to particular people of faith.”
Note: not one single Democrat leader is calling out the offensive biggoted language coming from their side.
