HOUSE DIVIDED: Fellow Democrats SLAM Ilhan Omar’s Israeli Boycott Bill, Say ‘DEAD ON ARRIVAL’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.19.19

Democratic lawmakers pushed-back against Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest legislation defending a proposed boycott of Israel; saying the bill is “dead on arrival” in the House of Representatives.

“High-profile Democrats are decrying a controversial resolution from Rep. Ilhan Omar affirming the right to boycott Israel, even as they rally behind her and three other first-term congresswomen attacked by President Trump,” reports Fox News.

“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,” Omar said in a recent interview.

“I can’t imagine that any committee is going to mark up or take seriously any pro-BDS resolution,” said Rep. Brad Sherman. “Am I worried about the overall BDS movement worldwide as an economic matter? No. As an effort to delegitimize Israel, of course. The comments here today are a tiny part of that delegitimizing effort.”

“I think the BDS movement is harmful, and anyone that promotes it is making a big mistake,” said Rep. Eliot Engel.

“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 told her colleagues when introducing the legislation Tuesday.

A NEW LOW: Rashida Tlaib Accuses STEVE SCALISE of ‘Islamophobia’ for Condemning Anti-Semitism

Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.

“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

Omar made national headlines earlier this year after she accused “evil” Israel of “hypnotizing” the world and flat-out refused to condemn Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.

BACKLASH GROWS: Scalise Says Omar Should be REMOVED from Committee, BLOCKED from Intel

Rep. Steve Scalise joined the growing chorus of legislators calling for the removal of Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday; saying she should no longer have access to classified briefings regarding the State of Israel after her anti-Semitic rant.

“Right now, she sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee. She’s able to get classified briefings on foreign policy, especially as it relates to Israel. She’s made statements, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish statements, aligned herself with anti-Semitic people as well,” said Scalise.

“She should be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Nancy Pelosi should remove her immediately,” he added.
