DOUBLING DOWN: Omar, Tlaib Introduce Bill Defending Boycott of Israel, Compare Jewish State to Nazi Germany

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.18.19

Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib introduced new legislation this week defending a boycott of Israel; directly comparing the world’s only Jewish State to Nazi Germany during World War 2.

“U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union,” reports Fox News.

Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish,” adds Fox.

“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting… And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement,” said Omar.

The BDS Movement -or Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions- is a pro-Palestinian boycott of Israeli companies and products.

“Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust,” Omar said in the resolution introduced Tuesday.

Congressman Lee Zeldin slammed the resolution, saying “Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats. Shame on Rep @Ilhan Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.”

Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar stunned Americans on both sides of the political aisle Friday; comparing her previous comments on the 9/11 terror attack with George W. Bush’s address from the rubble of the World Trade Center.

“’The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!’ President George W. Bush. Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack? What if he was a Muslim?” posted Omar on social media.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Friday she plans to “speak to her” regarding Omar’s stunning rhetoric.

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez RIPS Dan Crenshaw, Claims He’s ‘Drumming Resentment’ Towards Rep. Omar

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Rep. Dan Crenshaw on social media Thursday afternoon; accusing the GOP lawmaker of ‘drumming resentment’ towards Ilhan Omar.

“You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes,” posted Ocasio-Cortez. “In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”

Rep. Omar found herself in hot-water this week after footage emerged showing the freshman Democrat referring to the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”
