Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar defended Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ recent controversial Holocaust remarks Friday; saying people are “in camps” and being “concentrated,” therefore they are “Concentration Camps.”
“When you look at what is taking place, people are being put in camps. And when you think about the definition, if we separate it from death camps, I would say these are camps and people are being concentrated in them. And so that’s the general definition,” Omar said during a recent interview.
“I think a lot of people are conflating what a death camp looks like or a specific removal of people. These people are coming to the border. We are removing them from the border. We are placing them in camps. Some of them are being removed from communities and being put in what we’re calling detention centers — but are essentially camps,” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez flat-out refused to apologize for her recent remarks regarding the President’s immigration policy Friday; doubling-down on her stunning comparison between detention centers and ‘Concentration Camps.’
“As long as the @GOPLeader supports jailing children and families on the border, I will continue to hold him to account for it. That’s why I’m calling on Rep. McCarthy to apologize for aiding and supporting the separation of children from their parents,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.
“@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.

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.

BIBI SLAMS OMAR: ‘Take It From This Benjamin: It's Not About the Benjamins!’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar during his address at the annual AIPAC conference this week; saying Americans “love Israel” not because of money, but “because they share our values.”
“Take it from this Benjamin: It’s not about the Benjamins!” said the staunch Trump ally. “The reason Americans love Israel is not because they want our money, it’s because they share our values.”
“It’s because America and Israel share a love of freedom and democracy,” he told the packed audience.
Rep. Ilhan Omar was harshly rebuked earlier this year after she claimed American politicians were all “about the Benjamins,” suggesting they support the world’s only Jewish State because of secret campaign contributions.
